stupid Pistons and their refusal to tank properly
rundown of Michigan's riser
needs moar usage
so much for that
This list is completely arbitrary and not a genuine analysis of the relative merits of state fossils.
will be michigan's highest pick in a while
money has to go somewhere
I am only motivated by people who have no opinion about me.
the just released schedules were a flat-out statement that the B10 doesn't believe SOS will matter in playoff selection
but I thought that draft was supposed to be incredibly loaded?
If you're gonna go please be in the first round.
another delightful side effect of a 14 team conference
For tomorrows matchup... which would you rather have?
I want the top one. Interesting.
Our's definitely. I'm trying to set aside previous biases, but I do think that the giant O logo in the middle of the chest looks stupid.
USING GRATUITOUS AMOUNTS OF CAPS LOCK SINCE APRIL 2011
Maize shoes, maize uniform, maize rage maize out. It's gonna be a-maize-ing tomorrow night.
The Ohio jersey looks much better. I like the color on color that the M jersey has, just not with highlighter yellow. (And my goodness if they break out those highlighter/EMU shoes so help me g-d). I like the idea of logos, perhaps because I'm a hockey player/fan, so I have to go with the Nike jerseys
Bo' Money Bo' Problems
You do realize your criticism was directly entirely towards the color?
Eating is murder.
I can see where that would be confusing. Colors and teams aside meaning im not going to say its a bad jersey simply because it is Ohio State colors or Michigan colors. Perhaps "All bias aside" would have been more pleasing to you?
No one will be able to read the uniform numbers on TV, as what happened with the Outback Bowl and when Kansas wore all-blues a few weeks ago. Not as big of a problem as football, since we can see the players' faces, but a problem nonetheless.
The Ohio one is worse because it's Ohio, and because the front looks terrible on all of the Nike schools that have used this design.
Hail to the college whose colors we wear,
Hurrah for the Yellow and Blue!
Those Outback numbers sucked, and I fear these will be just as bad. The court is obviously a lot smaller than a football field, and you'll have direct indoor lighting, but I fear for the worst. Not a fan.
Yout forgetting 2 huge differences between these basketball jerseys and the outback bowl uniforms. The main one being the outback bowl was played outside in the sun and two the outback bowl uniforms where white with maize numbers. You wont have a problem seeing these numbers.
The Nike jerseys suck because they are just old retreads sold as something new
I don't care if we wore trash bags and duct tape as long as we beat Ohio
Jersey would be nice if it read "Hairless Nut" instead of buckeyes
I like Ohio's jersey much, much better. Now if you'll excuse me, I'm going to throw up.
Disgruntled former moderator. I got a lot of problems with you people!
I saw our "Bleed Out" jerseys in person Saturday @MDen and they actually look decent.. I do like the format of the ohio jersey though with the logo and number stacked
Hate them both. But theirs are better. They may put the z in uniformz but they at least serve the utilitarian purpose of a sports uniform which is to allow players to be identifiable.
"I just hope Tressel doesn't fire me"
Love the design of ours, even though theirs are much easier to read.
I will always pick the Michigan <whatever> over the ohio state <whatever>. Maybe you prefer the Nike style/format/design, but once you slap "ohio state" and that stupid nut on there, it's no question.
For my privacy, my new username is "non-Oriental non-Andrew"
It looks like a practice jersey combined with a sweater vest.
Maybe it's just me, but I like the simple look, although I think bolder outline of the letters and numbers would be worth a look.
I want the one that doesn't say Ohio State.
Hate them both.
But their blue ones are still the best.
I really hate the logo jerseys. I've seen a few other schools wear them and they look dumb. The bleed outs are much better.
Yeah, the single, centered logo looks terrible. Michigan would never stoop to such a...
Awright, well anyway it is just basketball; we'd never stoop to such a thing in footb...
Why would we want to throw back to THAT era?
When the ADept sells special jerseys and gear, you'll see my picture next to the targeted customer crowd. A sheep.....but a Blue one.....
Because that season was pretty fun until Jamal Crawford got questionably dinged by the NCAA? That team was way more fun to watch than its record indicates.
Seriously, did anyone around here watch Michigan Basketball before 2010?
As a little kid, I remember watching Dan Fife play. That's Dane's dad.
Johnny Orr was a truly excellent coach; maybe the best pure basketball coach Michigan's had in my lifetime. Maybe not the best recruiter; but pretty good. And just a terrific teacher.
Josh Asselin. Chris Young. Kevin Gaines. LaVell Blanchard. Gavin Groninger. Dion Harris. Avery Queen. Amaker years with Ron Coleman and Jerret Smith. The NCAA tourney teams of Abram, Horton, Petway, Sims, and Hunter that should have occurred, but never did. Etc., etc., etc. I've religiously watched since the early 80's. I even endured the entire Duke game circa Ellerbe era when we were down something like 34-2.
This year has been a complete joy to watch, especially if you paid attention to Michigan basketball from 1998-2008.
Georgetown's and Texas's Hyper Elites look kinda fresh. For them. Wouldn't want us to ever go back to the block M.
...but would like it even better if they'd "bleed out" the adidas logo too.
Seriously, what the hell? The "Michigan" gets bled into the background but the corporate logo is given high contrast? Pardon my french, but fuck that shit.
Speaking of corporate logos, where's the B1G logo on these?
Man, why did I ever take Spanish?
Best post here. Hit the nail on the head.

It at least seems like we're heading more towards maize on the maize to lime green spectrum. Ill accept the shitty design if it means we can start to be the maize and blue again.
"Michigan Defense" is dominating everything, in every aspect of life. That's a rough definition.
-Craig Roh 10/29/2011
They at least retain the basic color scheme/contrast, and you can read the numbers.
It's tough to make predictions, especially about the future. -- Yogi Berra
Louisville wore their version of these yesterday. I had no idea who their players were except for Siva, Smith, and Djeng
If I tell you it's Easter, you better start looking for eggs.
Some folks call it a sling blade, I call it a kaiser blade.
Ours is stupid and hard to read but Ohio's jersey (and all like them) seriously look like Meijer-brand jerseys with their logo on the front. It just looks bad
You're right, but it is because anything that bears that particular Ohio State logo looks like it is from Wal-Mart. (I actually like Meijers, a Michigan company.)
That logo is an abomination. I think a lot of Buckeyes dislike it.
Eight year olds. Does the back have "soon to be broken in the NBA" as the last name ? Not broke. Broken. Greg and sully style.
All in for some manball.
Hyper Elite? What's next for Nike, Ludicrous Elite?
It's been a lot. Its been a roller coaster that for some reason seemed like it would never get good. But you know what? We kept fighting. It's like that old saying goes, "Those Who Stay Will Be Champions." -David Molk
P Diddy Elite!
I thought what I'd do was, I'd pretend I was one of those deaf-mutes.
All Maize Everything
Our normal maize uniforms.
Neither is inspired.
Abort, Retry, Fail?
...is offensive looking to me. By default, I will have to go with Michigan's jersey, even if I can't read the name or number on the jersey.
Maize basketballs with an all maize court!
Despite what the other guy calls himself, my name actually is Magnus.
Easy, adidas. Nike is cheesy garbage.
In other ugly related news, here is ohio's new logo posted on the twitterz by 11w.
It could be worse.
