The Truth On The New Uni's Has Arrived
The Final verdict on the New Uni's is in:
The Lightning Streaks on the Road Jerseys is the real deal. I'm okay with that. As long as the Home Uniforms stay the same.
I know tradition is important, and great at Michigan, but the Road Jerseys have always been subject to change, never having that same striking effect as the home uniforms.
So let them play with the road Jerseys some more. I bet they'll still be better than...... YOU KNOW WHAT? I change my mind. Fuck these lightning streaks, this is Michigan Dammit!!!
DEATH TO THE PIPING. PleaseOPlease make it stop; the piping haunts my dreams.
Yeah, they don't even show the back in the official announcement:
What's up with this tiny picture? It would have been nice to see several views and maybe even players modeling them. It looks like there are two huge vertical maize stripes on the back of the road jersey in the Free Press photo but maybe that's just the thing they talked about that keeps the jersey tucked in.
Free Press has a gallery now: http://www.freep.com/apps/pbcs.dll/gallery?Site=C4&Date=20080713&Category=SPORTS06&ArtNo=713002&Ref=PH&Params=Itemnr=1
The replicas look cheap.
Is there any speculation or knowledge as to how much the authentic jerseys will cost? I think I'll head down to The MDEN on August 1 to pick up an authentic, because the replicas look pretty shoddy in comparison.
I think Nike's were about $150
