landing spot. will be interesting to see how he does.

given your avatar you seem like a good person to ask. Is it just me, or does the player's face look like Woodson?
My initial thought was Donovan Warren. Maybe they made plans for the shirt before they knew he was leaving
I was about to suggest the same. It looks like Woodson in the '98 Rose Bowl, when he did wear a darkened visor.
about it....Kick ass design too!
Much better than last year.
...but that makes it perfect for this era.
Not a fan at all, there's no need for that adidas logo, whatsoever.
EDIT: At least it's Maize though, so I'd probably buy it. I just don't like the font on the schedule, and the front is just too busy.
And play all sports - hockey, football, basketball, volleyball - on Elbel Field,
If we were still a Nike school, there'd be a swoosh on it (and probably in a more prominent location). There's no way our apparel company wouldn't put its logo on it. I give Adidas credit for putting it in a pretty discrete location.
I think its definitely the best in a while, its a shirt I could see myself wearing for more than game days, as it has more than just some saying on it.
i think its the best since the 06-07 one
looks like Braylon to me
Braylon never wore that style of face mask.
I think it is Minor...with a visor.
It does look like braylon
I actually don't think they'd design it after a current player, even if it's kind of vague. The NCAA could potentially complain.
"why have a player who isn't on the roster at the time that this shirt was designed?"
I could be wrong, but I think that's the only option. I don't think Michigan could sell a shirt featuring the likeness of a current player.
Guh. I hate it.
I swear I just saw it (the pic) in a video.
My mom took it on Spring Break a few years ago
I went back and looked, and the video (on another blog) had this same pic, with someone else's face transposed on it. Absolutely certain.
At least it's maize and not neon-ish yellow. I like it.
Does the shirt color match the helmet color? I think not. I hope the shirt isn't that color because it's too dark and isn't maize.
I like it, but I didn't realize Bowling Green was such a big game.
I hate the whole "we are" thing that everyone seems to do after that "We Are Marshall" movie came out. We need something more original.
Somos ellos que queman los barcos!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Penn State does that whole "We Are Penn State" cheer, too. Its over-done.
But, while Penn State gets credit for starting it (or at least making it big) every other school is adopting the, "(Insert your team's color here) Out", too. What goes around, comes around.
Seems very...busy...in an acid-washed kind of way. Sears and all that.
Like the player/helmet...don't really need the schedule on the back (especially with different fonts/boldness per game).
How about helmet/player (Woodson, Warren, Braylon, whichever Bad-Ass) with blacked out visor on the front and all the catch-phrases on the back, a 2010 somewhere so they can remarket a new one next year...but don't really need the UMass/BGSU/etc schedule week by week.
more than 2 fonts is a big no no, so the back makes me want to beat small animals to death.
However, I love the front, and it is a vast improvement from last years. Please let it be the proper maize, and not neon yellow
in this case the major plurality of typefaces reinforces the WE aspect.
also, no Papyrus FTW
But, is "All In" permanent? I guess I assumed that it would be a one year thing. Specifically seeing as how we were 'all in' this year, but then lost everything. If the metaphor holds, can one go all in twice?
I don't think it's a matter of "going all in" on separate occasions but rather a reinforcement of our commitment to and support of this team.
I love the "all in" metaphor and am happy it's still being used.
i know this seems blasphemous, but i was never a big fan of the "all in" thing. i just never understood the need to have a slogan, and this one seems particularly tacky. as for next year's shirt; i think one of the best qualities of our uniforms is simplicity, and i think our shirts should mirror that quality.
You can't go all in every year? I sure as hell can and will
Like our team.
It's not my favorite, but it's not bad.
My favorite was the 2007, where the 20 and the 07 were split around the M logo, making it look like Henne and Hart's #'s.
No Pledge = Vast Improvement
Can it only be bought by students? If not, how would one get a hold of one? (Not living near campus that is...)
Anyone can buy the student shirt. It'll be available through MGoBlueShop and possibly the M-Den.
And as a result, I will not be buying one. Support your local, Michigan-owned vendors of Michigan apparel, not a Texas-based online retailer.
But I thought they had the student shirt at M-Den last year. Of course I tried to find it on their site just now and could not in the two minutes I took.
It seems like a lot of negative comments about the shirt, but I'm a student and I love it. I showed a few other students and they only had good things to say about it as well. While the two-fonts on the back is not my favorite, I love the player/visor with the sayings on it, and personally, I think its more important if the student body likes it, which if my friends are any indication, they will.
All in for Michigan 2010!! Season cant start soon enough
Can you buy these if you're not a student?
In years past you've been able to get the shirts at the M-den, not sure what the deal is with the M-store thing
I don't know why they call it that. Do any students actually have input on the design?
They call it the student shirt because students can buy it with their tickets for $10. So most every student gets one. As for the students having input on the design, I know last year they gave us two fronts and two backs and had us vote on which combo was best...which gave us the "Big House Pledge". Lame. As far as I know, there was no such poll this year.
I think I saw that same shirt at K Mart in 1998...what the hell is that? Terribly cheap looking.
Compared to last years shirt, it's a huge improvement. Last years shirt looked like it had been done by somebody using clipart from Microsoft Powerpoint. I do agree with the consensus that the multitude of fonts is distracting. The schedule on the back of the shirt looks like somebody pasting together a ransom note.
Overall, a win, but with a little more editting, it could have been the best shirt yet. The silhouette of the player is really great.
I like it. I will get one while down at the Spring Game
