I want the top one. Interesting.
Adidas "Bleed Out" vs Nike "Hyper Elite" Uniforms
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.
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
You do realize your criticism was directly entirely towards the color?
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.
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.
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.
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.
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?
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.
They at least retain the basic color scheme/contrast, and you can read the numbers.
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.
Hyper Elite? What's next for Nike, Ludicrous Elite?
P Diddy Elite!
All Maize Everything
Our normal maize uniforms.
Neither is inspired.
...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.
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.
Ours has the virtue of being simpler, but fergodsakes those fucking morons at Adidas still can't figure out that outlined fonts on jerseys completely suck when it comes to communicating. The design incompetence is mind-boggling.
Here are the Michigan shoes for tomorrow night, if anyone was wondering. I hate the bleed out thing that Adidas is doing. I think it looked bad with every team, JMO.
Edit; didn't see the other thread, disregard this image
Those are hideous and look like clown shoes. Really, put those on Ronald McDonald and no one would blink an eye.
has there been a new breakthrough in uniform manufacturing technology in the last several years?
if not, why ail of sudden has it become a good idea to come up with multiple versions of basketball uniforms almost all of which are worse than the standard uniform.
michigan's uniform is ugly (even the color is off)--ohio's is worse
Question is, how many jerseys do we have as backups? #Minnjerseyfail
Let's compromise for the benefit of all involved. Have each team wear their own jersey front and the oppossing team's back. This should favor Michigan on offensive charge calls and ...
...aw, screw it. They are both butt-ugly.
This is team Adidas vs. team Nike, and it's dumb. I miss the days of "alternate" jerseys being unique. Now, Nike and Adidas just change the colors/name and trot out every team under its umbrella in the same "Hyper-Duper-Elite-Lighter-Mega" uniforms and call it a day. Michigan doesn't play for Michigan anymore, it plays for Adidas. Same for OSU and Nike.
And it's almost as if these companies are deliberately disrespecting the traditions of the schools and creating multiple variations of uniforms in an attempt to confuse fans so that their own corporate interests can rise to the top.
Sort of reminds me of the corporate shenanigans that Naomi Klein outlines in her book "Disaster Capitalism."
I mean even UM's regular uniforms. Every Adidas school has the same jersey piping and that same logo drift shorts pattern. It's dumb.
Ours look better close up. I kind of like them (but won't buy one) and I don't like the logo/number stack on Ohio's, it's just too vertical.
But watching on TV or from the stands, when you're not gonna be able to read "Michigan" on our jerseys, or see the numbers, and it just looks like we're wearing plain Maize colored tank tops and shorts, ours are gonna look worse.
I'd just like to have normal unis in most big games again.
When was it decided that Michigan was going to emphasize maize come hell or high water? I could have sworn our cheer was "Go Blue!"
Been doing the maize-out thing for at least 5 years (since my freshman year in 2008) and probably before that. I even recall the (student?) shirts saying "Go Blue, Wear Maize" from a previous year before I attended.
I don't care what we wear as long as we beat Ohio.
look like something you would find at kmart.
