No. We. Aren't.
I'VE HAD JUST ABOUT ENOUGH OF YOU SONNY
No. We. Aren't.
Oh, yeah, you're right. Thank god, I was worried for a bit. I was confused because this will be the sixth different uniform Michigan has used in under a year.
A: Would DB be uniform happy if they weren't being sold?
B: Over/Under on 2014 before we see legit-Maize jerseys?
In fairness, we're mostly only uniform-whores on the road. At home we've worn the same uniform except for the UTL game, which was (presumably) a one-off thing.
I don't think maize uniforms are in the works, because that would mean deviating from blue at home, and I can't see that happening.
This is a great uniform. Best since the Sugar Bowl uniforms. Love it, definitely going to pick up a jersey.
Well, it's not hard for them to be the "best since the Sugar Bowl uniforms," since the Sugar Bowl was the last game we played.
We should change into different jerseys at halftime of every game.
Would be great without maize shoulders IMO.
That looks sharp. That should be our uniform. There's no need for that maize strip when we already have maize pants.
I second that. I would even be interested to see what it looks like with a maize and blue stripe at the bottom of the sleeve, a la the 2000 road unis. But it might not look as good with the shorter sleeves today.
I like that
Simple look, without the maize it looks great.
Is better than all of the Adidas marketers and designers.
This is pretty much what we wore during the Woodson/Brady years.
Bring back the Block M. It brought us a National Championship.
but definitely an improvement from the road Legacy uniforms from last year. Was not a fan of the white pants.
I'm not really on board with all these alternative jerseys..... OK, truth be told, if any of you have noticed my posting habits on this topic, you know I want to put them on a one-way rocket to the sun and never wear that crap again.
That said.....I actually don't hate these and would be down if these became our regular road jerseys. Simple block numbering, relatively clean lines, and a sharp-looking block M on the shoulder. I might actually like these.
ADIDAS GET THE %$#@! OFF MY LAWN.
I like how it's adidas (no capitalization) in the article. And I like how there's going to be an American flag on the back of the helmet.
HA! DB saying the coaches and players chose this. Color me skeptical about the veracity of that statement.
Article implies no alternate uniforms for the Notre Dame game..? Maybe that's old information, but I thought for sure we'd be in some bumblebee lookin' getup for that game.
What did they have to choose from? "Gentlemen, you can wear these uniforms against Alabama, or you can wear banana suits." Personally, I would love to see our guys all dress up in banana suits.
Or maize gorilla suits. I mean, c'mon. Alabama vs Gorillas? Gorillas win.
do alternate jerseys? Look at Pro Combats or a bunch of Oregon Jersies? No thanks

2012 Uniform plan
My feeling the entire day-
Helmet numbers will be suspended after the Cowboys Classic
Now that does warm my heart.
New paint on the wings of the helmet to better highlight it and a creative more durable surface
My god, they're actually doing it. They're going to fuck with the helmets. I'm going to have an internet freak out... and then return to my beer and go on with life. But seriously, I'm guessing some metallic, Oregon-like godlessness.
I am sure they are not going to drastically change the paint on the helmet, just add something to it. Either Matte (everyone is going matte) or a sparkly version of the helmet (just dont do what Notre Dame did).
In my opinion, I dont care as long as we win.
I think they are just going to paint maize on the wings so they stand out more. Right now, they start with a maize helmet and just paint blue around the outline of the wings.
Not a big fan of having the Big Ten patch on our uniforms. At the least, it had better be in our school colors and not that baby blue color the league uses.
The B1G logo is team colors, and I think it looks pretty good. This is a pic of a Nebraska's jersey. http://twitter.com/NUequipment/status/227479914134241280/photo/1
It does look OK on Nebraska's uniform. I just hope it doesn't stand out too much on our home uniforms (since I imagine it'll be in maize).
adidas logos, American flags, B1G patches, "Legend" patches. And don't you dare forget the obligatory bowl-game patch.
If we are just going to whore out the uniform space, please let's get some truly obscene money for it. I'm thinking Goldman Sachs; maybe Haliburton. AIG is locked into Manchester United, isn't it? Or mabye STP. STP used to have a big adverstising budget. Wait I got it; Budweiser. The King of Beers.
Did you say Nebraska or Nascar? There's an awful lot going on with that jersey.
But I believe the Big Ten logos used on fields/courts I've seen have been in the home teams colors. I may have just made that up, but I'm not sure. I feel like I've seen different colored Big logos somewhere.
I am still not entirely sure that this isn't a BHGP pro combat parody. Gloves especially.
I'm tired of this. Honestly, if those were the new, permanent road jersey, I would be kinda-sorta okay with it, despite my lifelong distaste for full shoulder yokes. At least it would be consistent. But we'll probably go back to flipping jerseys all the time, and that will probably include a completely-unecessary alternate home jersey that can only be a downgrade from Michigan's long-running best uniform in football.
I really like this one. Much better than that crap from last year.
We'll also be getting the Big Ten Conference Logo on all of our jerseys, per the football team's twitter.
Now this really sucks.
It's like putting "250 CLK Bluetec" on a mercedes. Just more clutter.
Barf. Better than the UTL and MSU game uniforms, but still. Barf.
Remember the good old days when there was nothing broken to be fixed or played with?
These days it would be "alternate" to go with traditional uniforms. Great pic of Desmond, thanks for posting it. That is the only away uniform we need.
If they mess up the helmet colors.... its time to torch and pitchfork someone.....something.
EDIT: BOTH great pics.
i personally don't mind the uniforms, unless its the sparty clown gear. I think these look cool!
I like them.
Michigan may consider designing a special bowl game jersey if the opportunity presents itself. However, a final determination will be made later in the year.
These are so bad. The only different unis I like are the UTL ones. I do like the numbers on the helmet. But that's it.
No...However, I am so damn sick and tired of new jerseys all the time, but the simple fact is as long as people keep buying every single jersey they come out with...Brandon and company will keep making them
Is it bad that I was a critic of the Road Legacys and I own one just to complete the collection?.....
Not according to Dave Brandon. In fact, according to him, you're the Ultimate Michigan Fan!!! (!!!).
I must be super ultimate since I have the receiver gloves as well.....
It's an addiction, I know.
