I began watching the "countdown to kickoff" video, it has the first practice. Then I noticed they got new jerseys on.
Practice Video, NEW JERSEYS????
I want to negbang you for double posting, but your picture keeps drawing away my mouse.
Update: Went ahead and fixed that for you.
LOL, you doubled posted topics on the mgoboard.
Im gonna go get the papers....get the papers!
So? The Practice jerseys have stripes on them...
Big Fucking Deal.
Today's video is pretty good though!
All spring they had game day jerseys(2008 jerseys).
It's a new season now isn't it?
Rivals called them Practice Jerseys, I'll take their word for it.
If it was the Beave, I'd wait for double confirmation from the bricklayer and the janitor.
I cannot get the top video to load but I did get the one right underneath it too.
Anyone else having that problem?
Yep. Not sure what the deal is right now.
While the SIDs have really started to hit high gear again over the last week, they've put out a ton of content starting today. It could just be first day bugs.
I found it in the Multimedia player.
It wasn't listed in that list thing yet.
I found the video, it just won't load. The loading sign just spins continuously.
Welcome to MGoVideo, it sucks balls.
Becareful who you attribute that to, MGoVideo is actually an awesome service. MGoBlue, totally different video animal.
I was actually coming back here to edit my above post after I discovered my error. Sorry.
Check the second video from the top. I couldn't get the top one to work either, but the one below it is from today and works fine.
Watched that one. Good stuff. I'm just waiting for the full Countdown video to work. The list says that it'll be out "Late Monday" so we'll probably have to wait a few hours yet.
These actually look pretty cool. I wouldn't want the team wearing them on Saturdays, but I might buy one if I had the chance.
looked like a position player going through that drill
He's been working with a personal trainer all summer. They've been doing some Barwis stuff, mixed with his trainer's routine.
I spoke with his Dad a couple weeks before Taylor went up, and his dad couldn't believe what kind of shape he was in. It wasn't the biased kind; it was more like he was shocked at what Taylor was doing.
i like seeing him wearing the #77. if he can keep his leverage while moving his feet like that, he'll rarely be out of position
Big Will Campbell also appears to be lean and mean. Wonder what kind of impact he will make this year.
i think they are practice jerseys. it does not look like the sleeves are cut for pads.
Practice? We're talkin about practice?
straight practice jerseys. I saw Tennessee wearing the same jerseys with the stripes on the side (no not in michigan's colors) when they showed them on college football live today.
The team doesn't usually practice in game jerseys. If we have a new look we most likely won't see it until the opener (or possibly Fan Day).
Only thing different in game day jerseys or practice jerseys in the past were names on the back.
Maybe RR wants game jerseys only on game days so its more of an award putting it on.
are gonna look awesome when speeding down the sideline.
1. Seeing Shoelace under center
2. "Our feet look so much better this year"
On rivals, someone talked about the practice:
1) Offensive Line looks REALLY good
2) Mike Martin is a monster
3) Tate and sheridan look more defined than in spring
4) Mathews and Odoms return kicks
Did anyone notice Rod Smith's black eye? Reminder that you don't make Tate angry
There is no chin under Tate's beard, just another fist. Or something like that.
He had eye surgery
They're practice jerseys. Adidas (and, for that matter, Nike as well) comes out with them every year. Tennessee has the same one, with orange in place of blue. I'm sure Notre Dame, Wisco, and other adidas schools have the same template.
They will not be on the field for an actual game. EVER.
Ahh you posted right before me. I watched a video on rivals highlighting Mante Te'o, and Notre Dame has the same exact jerseys.
Should have gave us the maize practice jerseys =\
How are you guys seeing the video? The one on mgoblue.com isn't up yet. I think one of the tubes in my internets is plugged up.
go to the multimedia link, you can access it from there, though I've been waiting for it to load for a half-hour.
The actual countdown to kickoff day 26 video won't be up till later tonight. There is a sights and sounds video of our first practice though right underneath it. It's only about 1:30 long but it shows Denard, Tate, and Lewan doing some drills with their groups.
Thanks to Timmmaay and Woodson2Heisman. May your wolverines have a dozen pups this year.
AnnArbor.com just posted video of some QB work today...
Also, some other notes....
Interesting that Rothstein mentions Denard Robinson being really short.
The offensive line looks SO much better. I do agree that Lewan was moving like a skill position player through those drills, the future looks exciting for him. Also it was great to see Denard back there I'm really looking forward to see that speed at quarterback.
could function as exhibit A on why I've hated the Adidas deal since before it happened.
Those really aren't Michigan jerseys, they're Adidas jerseys that Michigan football players happen to be wearing. Adidas' corporate logo (the three stripes) features way to prominently on much of the gear they make for teams, and it should be about
THE TEAM, THE TEAM, THE TEAM!!!!
