If you, like me, need to replace your ratty and ancient jersey and are putting it on your Christmas list this year, what number do you ask for?
I'm thinking either 87, 27 or 21.
I have a throwback Grady jersey that converts into a basketball jersey. I wear it every Saturday. On Sunday I wear my Lebron high school jersey and durning the week I mix it up with classics like wade Boggs or a Brett the Hitman hart singlet.
I really hope we keep our starting QB wearing 98. That would be truly unique to Michigan.
Number 2 Jabrill Peppers
You honestly think, if CW shows up to UTL-IV to hand it to Jabrill in front of 115,000, that he'd turn it down?
The Tate Forcier legacy jersey!
Or David Underwood
Jabrill Peppers is going to wear the number 2 (IMO) and it is going to be legendary!
As someone mentioned above, Peppers has said mulitiple times he doesn't want to wear #2, he wants to create his own identity. He has expressed an interest in #5 though, so you can go after that.
Polos or T shirts shouldn't have numbers on them.
The next person to suggest that fans of a team shouldn't own/wear team jersies is getting smacked upside the head.
I suggest that fans of a team shouldn't own/wear team jersies.
I owe you one!
Fans of a certain age shouldn't own / wear team jerseys. (guess they can wear team jersies?)
Anyway . . . I don't know how old you are. If you are an active student, and below 25, go for it.
But when I think of adult men wearing jerseys, here's the prevailing image coming to mind:
To each their own, but that's not an image I like.
On the other hand, if you're a woman, jerseys are just fine:
That's all well and good in September, but after it hits October/November jerseys let you wear warmer things underneath so you don't freeze.
with adults wearing jerzeys to a game. I agree its out of place when worn in public to no particular sporting event. Face paint and wigs on middle aged grown adults? yeah, thats dumb.
Like the above poster noted jerseys also allow for another layer of warm clothing. Nothing wrong with them imo.
Yeah I'm not a fan of wearing them to places other than sporting events/game watching events (although if people want to I say go for it), but I do own several Michigan/wings jerseys and wear them when I go to games. I'm not a fan of people wearing basketball jerseys because I think it looks weird when you're not playing hoops, but again, if someone wants to then they should go for it because what some random dude on the Internet thinks about fashion means fuck all.
Not the damn "I am better than thou because I don't wear jerseys" attitude again.
*Paging Bando Calrissian, paging Bando Calrissian*
To be fair, when I see the adult Buckeye fans dressed as they are in the one photo, I tend to see that as more of a lesson about the need to hire quality makeup consultants when producing your own science fiction series.
I really dislike those two guys. There's a third guy, wears a cowboy hat, dislike him too.
So you mention 25 and under being fine. Then show a picture of old out of shape dudes against women who appear to be 25 and under to make a point...
I've never owned a jersey because it seems a little too worshippy. If I was gonna choose thought I'd go with 98, 47, or 41 (Lytle)... but absolutely with no names.
Needs a slap upside the head. "You can't wear a jersey" clan were probably never athletic enough to wear their own jersey.
Where the hell does this crap about an adult wearing a jersey come from? Personally, I like them and I say to each his own. If you like them wear one, if you don't put on a polo.
Every jersey thread ends up being a thread about grown men telling how other grown men how to dress. I really don't care if you wear a damn fanny-pack with your jersey.
Sorry, I don't have much to say tonight.
87, 98 or 21 are wonderful choices, but I'd go with 2.
Lloyd Christmas would wear "too".
I stared at this for 60 seconds, trying to think of what it all meant. Then I just gave in to the nonsense, and felt so much better. Plus one to you.
"that makes nonsense" will surely be the coolest thing I read today.
Getting ready for Da'Shawn Hand
It's Classic...Anthony Carter.
It's Awesome... all the #1's. ALL of them.
It's Future... there WILL be another.
It's Permanent... Michigan is #1.
It is EVERLASTING!
Also, It is slimming... 'cause it's the number 1. #StayFresh
Sha'mon, mane. Gimme a hard one!
to you good sir.
You will need Braylon Edwards' approval to wear #1.
the real jersey number
I was expecting to see a Michigan jersey with a wreath or lights on the numbers.
But the #98 throwback by Tiedman & Fromby is what I'll be getting.
I bought the 98 and it's awesome.
This is too easy. #54 for Jareth Glanda. Hero savior of the sugar bowl and long snapper extraordinaire
For me, the answer has always been #2.
#1, though, would never be a mistake.
Now, however, I would highly consider the throwback jersey/sweater #98.
With "Obama" on the nameplate.
Just don't put the name. That is kind of weird.
Jabrill Peppers, not Tate Forcier.
So many good ones for next year.
I think I'm going with 5 for Peppers when I buy my next jersey - home blue, for sure.
If I wasn't, I would probably grab a 21, 47, 87 or 88 (JAKE BUTT JAKE BUTT) because I have 2, 7, 16 and 15 (Mallettttttt!!!) already.
I got a #16 jersey as a tiny little 10-year old that was far too big for me, and ratty and slightly tight though it may now be, I will stubbornly wear it until the end of time.
Or maybe just on Saturdays.
No religion, no politics...
Christmas is religion/paganism last time I checked. Are we Mgoboard hypocrites?
Post of the week.
This has been a really crappy week.
A #25 jersey with "Christmas" on the back. Problem solved.
I'm bias because it has been my sports jersey number when I play any sport since I was a kid.
Bias is a noun or verb. You can say, "I have a bias toward #21", but you would describe yourself as biased. Only trying to help.
The woodson jersey I bought off this site was awesome. $25, no shipping, takes about 3 weeks. I also have gotten a Miguel Cabrera and Calvin Johnson, the latter of which is the best quality jersey I've ever owned.
Yay for unlicensed counterfeits!
I have a handful of jerseys, but really want a 47 for Jake, but I don't think they are made. Hopefully next year they will make one.
And just get whatever number Peppes decides to wear!
