I'm not sure if this is thread worthy, so feel free to delete. However, when college gameday started, Jalen Rose was wearing a red and white striped jacket nearly identical to the IU hoops team warm-up pants. Did he lose a bet or something? Considering this is the biggest Michigan basketball game in a long time and it is in Bloomington, I thought that was absurd. Just my thoughts. On top of the fact that relatives of mine that are graduates of IU felt the need to point out how one of the Fab 5 was donning their team's colors.
Jalen Rose's jacket
Michigan fans bitching about clothing choices.
If this bothers you, I don't want to know you.
Answer is in this picture. He borrowed it from the guy in the matching pants behind him. Apocalypse averted.
Has put on some lbs!!
How big is the guy he borrowed it from? Jalen's a big dude!
also, i caught a glimpse of his socks:
what is happening???
Is it weird that Jalen's legs turn me on?
Yeah, he must work out.
OMG he is doing it because we won't put up the banners!!! He must be changing his allegiance to IU!!
Was it this?
Those are some sweet threads, for circa 1994 at least. Somebody should've fixed the tuck on his shirt, though. Maybe the photog was a rookie then, too.
Not that, but that is quite impressive.
I often use this picture as a background on my phone
Somehow, I just don't feel terribly invested in what Jalen wears on TV. It must be your chain he's yanking, not mine.
...Has all red uniforms with white outline numbers...
OMG could both teams (ADIDAS) wear them tonight? All-Red Indiana vs. All-Maize Michigan?!!
I think IU said they would never wear alternates in response to the picture of those all red ones. U never know tho
You're more likely to see them wear them on the road @ Crisler in round II.
Jalen giving the edge to Michigan in almost every category lol EDIT: actually, he chose IU in the last 3. oops. Anyone see that one Michigan fan in the crowd?
Also, why isn't there an "Official College Gameday Discussion thread" posted?
No Brady Hoke...red is in jalen's clothing attire unfortunately...Go Blue!
Uh oh, Lloyd Carr in the Iowa press box thinks that is some Benedict Arnold ish! I heard when Jalen put on the jacket he could finally appreciate the beauty of a "good, honest, two-hand chest pass."
I heard that Lloyd, Jalin, and that EMU trustee were all on a conference call with Izzo just before the show!
Not So Fast...
It's kind of obvious.
This thread is the exact reaction he was looking for...good work OP.
It's music to my ears to hear someone say "Florida is in a weak league and if they played in this (B1G) league they would lose". Just can't wait until people are saying that about football in addition to CBB.
I'm not worried. I saw him put on maize underwear this morning through his hotel room window.
My roommate (an IU alumn) swears that Jalen wanted to go to Indiana, but Knight wouldn't offer him. Any truth to this? I couldn't find anything. Or is my buddy trolling me?
Your buddy is trolling you.
He's not wearing it now
As long as Jalen doesn't claim he went the University of Lloyd Carr's Indiana University of Michigan, I think we're good.
Are there any Michigan fans there?!?!? I was desperately trying to find a ride just so I could go there and hold up a 4 foot poster of Jalen in his Fab Five days
I saw the maize teletubbies. That's a start.
Nah those guys were wearing Indiana pants, thought it was them too
Well, that was awkward. Anyone catch him calling out Digger Phelps for not recruiting him? Even before that segment, i thought Digger has this smug look on his face, like he doesn't want to have anything to do with Jalen, or anything he says.
I take issue with what digger phelps said. He's a good coach, and so is Coach K obviously. But there's something to be said about coaches who take on the Jalen's of the world and try to have a positive influence in their lives.
Jalen called you out.
Jalen picked Michigan!!!!!
Don't be alarmed. I am an IU student who happens to absolutely love Michigan. That jacket Jalen was wearing belongs to my roommate. We asked all of the panel to wear the jacket during College Gameday and Jalen was the only one cool enough to wear it. Afterwards he was kind enough to take some pictures with us and sign autographs.
It's TV folks. It's ENTERTAINMENT. It's all staged. It's Holtz vs. May. It's Jalen vs. Digger. It's anything possible not to be boring so that you don't change the channel.
Have fun with it and don't get your undies in a bunch. Jalen in the red and white jacket was a hoot.
It was not staged at all. When we (my roommates and I) asked Jalen to wear the jacket the ESPN manager at first said no but he insisted when the fans chanted "wear the jacket."
I didn't mean the jacket. I meant the animosity and forced controversy between Jalen and Digger, Holtz and May, etc. It's part of the show.
Best post in years
I'm really dissapointed in Mr. Rose, I heard somewhere that he likes Nic Cage movies :/
The same person told me Trey Burke listens to Nickelback.
IDK if you guys knew this, but apparently our fight song is really Fail to the victors.
I am so disheartened.
Does Indiana even have a fight song?
If so, is there something about a chair in it?
Why does this thread make me crave candy canes?
I want to walk up to them and ask to buy cotton candy and two tickets to the big top.
P.S. I love Jalen and will never doubt his loyalty to UM nor his fandom.
My wife is a buckeye and he's rooting for Michigan because of the subjective calls.
