Could be worse I suppose.
this week in unintentionally grim-sounding recruiting headlines
That looks official what with its number and the Adidas logo and looking all like a thing that exists in the world. You still can't buy one (it errors out when you click on the monstrosity) but I think it's official enough to say that Michigan is going to look very, very stupid when they take the field against Notre Dame.
(new scoreboards new scoreboards new scoreboards not a cesspool of filth and corruption so deep Sepp Blatter is impressed deep breaths)
Could be worse I suppose.
Worse? How could it be worse?! Jehovah! Jehovah! Jehovah!
"Noone is to stone anybody until I say so.....................and I want to make this perfectly clear.....................even IF they say Jehovah"
Where are you from, Nose City?
it could be fucking MAIZE.
It could be one of our school colors? Perish the thought! I expect Dave Brandon to personally consult me for all of the latest insights I gather from constantly dressing all my Barbies with all of my hand-made Barbie-sized prototypes for really respectable throwback Michigan jerseys.
...it's a fucking shirt. get over it, girls.
says the guy who dresses his rat-dog in hand-made Barbie-sized prototype jerseys.
mirrors my thinking. I don't prefer the jersey, but it is a throwback game, many of which do not include cool uni's. A throwback Texas jersey is still so close to the theme. If this is the shirt, I want the boys to lay an ass whoopin' on ND wearing them. Many will quickly forget the look when posting a W on ND.
I think the Nike futuristic combat unis are way way worse. These look like funky soccer jerseys...not ideal for football or when you compare them to the best uniforms ever (our regular ones), but certainly could be worse.
I was just going to say that this looks like a soccer jersey.
Beatlejuice! Beatlejuice! Beatlejuice!
Only think worse than wearing these uniforms would be losing in them. Win, and they'll be SWEET!
Win and they will be "cool". Loose and and Meh...
Non Football people will take notice, Night game, ND beatdown, stripped jersey's...people will remember..so we have to win.
loosing is not an option
...neither is stripping.
Gotta work your way through med school somehow.
Just so you know: I upvote you without ever reading your comment.
find a top like the one in your avatar photo? Any idea? That is outstanding and I've never seen one like it!
That last one I actually saw over at M-Den at Briarwood when I was scamming AC during the blackout.
I really appreciate that. I'll have it by mid-week. Those are good looking suits. Would have been well worn yesterday in the 92 degree heat wave you know?
I haven't worn a bikini in ages...
So, is it for you?
Pics or it didn't happen.
They'll just be the uniforms worn during another glorious win over the team from South Bend.
up some of my popcorn. :(
Speaking of new scoreboards, does anyone in A2 have any pictures of the construction?
As of last week, they were still painting the six supports on each side gray, so there really isn't anything to see.
So they added a new support on each side of the existing 4 supports?
Geez, that really is a thing of beauty.
They were pouring fresh concrete a month ago for the new supports, put up the new supports as you described, and then painted both sides in the gray that you see in the picture. Couldn't tell you when the actual boards will be going up, though.
I can't wait to see them.
the gray was an undercoat
yeah, they did. big footprint...
As I understand it, they had to pour all new footings. That's how big those bastards are.
As for the jerseys, these would be cool, IMO, as a soccer jersey (setting aside the fact that the soccer jersey we had last year was 100% awesome already). I have a harder time thinking of it as a football jersey, but it could grow on me. YEAH I SAID IT
Better than Maize, but that's about it. The faux crinkling in the numbers is lame.
Crist will be confused by the crinkling and throw four INTs. We can call him "Crist Crinkle".
Also, the idea of a maize away jersey (dark blue pant) intrigues me. I'm aware of how this board feels, but hell, the maize bball unis are sweet, and ditto hockey. Why is everyone convinced that maize fb would look turrible?
I personally think our white away unis are weak.
I think you'll find much more support for messing with road jerseys than the home jerseys. Road jerseys have changed more historically, leading up to the stupid yellow piping/stripes we've got now. My favorite is the late 90s white's with the Block M on the shoulder. Maybe that's because I associate it with the '97 team. See how good A-Train looks in this getup?
That said, if everyone wants to see us in Maize jerseys, I wouldn't fight it on the road jerseys wherever we could get away with it. I vote no for any major changes to the home kit.
In fact I was just looking at pictures of A-Train an hour ago because I wanted to remember how nice those were!
Aren't we getting rid of the piping on the away jerseys? I thought I saw a picture of Cam Gordon sporting the new ones in spring practice and they looked pretty darn good.
the ones in your pic are very plain (and I doubt they would go with those), but the reason they look awful is b/c of the pants.
Don't know if you were implying the pictures were mine (PS'ed) or not, but for the sake of everyone, those are real pictures from last year's camp. Credit: detnews.com.
different maize than the helmets and pants, too. They have a Frenchs mustard look to them. Still, he's the only guy I've seen actually 'shop them together.
Not shooped. Real pics from camp. They had the QBs wear maize instead of red.
I saw that as soon as I posted, must have been seconds apart. That is an odd color, or at least a different maize than their pants and helmets. Maybe for the game jersey if it were the matching maize and the right size so you could see the numbers on the shoulders it would look better, but those don't look that good.
I just threw these together in photoshop, so it's nothing special, but here's the three considerations I've heard for a maize jersey.
(and yes, with paintbucket lolz...)
personally, I think these all look pretty awful, and it's not just that I suck at photoshop.
I disagree as well. I also don't think the "throwbacks" are all that bad.
They're Fauxbacks. We've never worn these before.
We never wore anything remotely like that in our hsitory.
They're just making shit up with no context. They may as well just have the players wear those fake tuxedo t-shirts for the night game. It would be no less authentic.
ND can wear unis that look like prom dresses, since they'll be our bitches that night.
Terelle Pryor will provide the limo's.
Maize jerseys with blue pants makes us look like Toledo, or even worse WVU. And all Maize jerseys and pants would make me gouge my eyes out with a spoon.
But, for the record and what I might write, does anyone on this board truly like these uniforms? I'm asking in all seriousness.
