Okay, I've actually digested the whole article now, and there were some notable statements:
The article claims that Michigan will wear "standard home and road uniforms for the rest of the season." If this is true, fabulous. I'll take a single alternate road jersey every year in exchange for consistency the rest of the time, especially if they follow through on the promise to drop the helmet numbers.
The article also suggests that there's some work going on to "normalize" the colors of maize. I am nervous about this. If they change the helmet wing color (they've said they're changing the paint, but we'll see about the color) I'll be very unhappy. Michigan's helmets have been fine. And back when I went to games, just before Nike started putting tackle twill numbers on the jerseys, everything looked great and matched, even if the basketball and hockey uniforms were not consistent with football.
So we'll see. Playing with colors is nervous work.
