OH MY SWEET DEATH!
yeah that looks like murder.
EDIT: Yeah I'm 21
YES YES YES I LOVE THIS!
Personally I would love to see a bunch of spongebobs running around out there.

dammit, no. forever no. 26.
has potential to be very good, only as an alternate though. 16
i think they would actually look....suck
Absolutely not for football.
Yes only if it was a one time gig, and they went to blue pants.
I know DB would be for this because i can only imagine how many additional Jerseys they would sell.
I think they might look pretty cool as a one time thing but ONLY with blue pants.
Maybe a bowl game or something.
I don't like the idea myself. The maize does look good on the hockey team, but they wear blue pants(shorts?). I think the football team would have to do the same to make a maize jersey look decent. The basketball maizes look good too, but the sleeveless nature and shorts make it so there isn't an overwhelming amount of maize.
Oh, and 19.
Well they would make me sick does that count? Most definitely no to maize jerseys(I do love the MBB and hockey ones though).
Why mess with perfection? And no offense, but I'm not in the habit of giving my age out online. Once you have someone's age it's fairly easy to change their passwords on most sites.
Translation: I'm over 50 and paranoid of those intertube hackers, they come out at night!
If it was my choice, I'd say no thank you, and I'm 21.
The way you worded your question may cause some problems with your data. For my generation sick means bad, I’m almost sure you think sick is good. So if you’re truly doing this for research then you may want to word your question different. I would say sick

Maize jerseys are a no-no. I personally just like the blue. In addition, we add maize jerseys and the next thing you know we're WV or Oregon and have a million different uni combos and stupid little wings on our shoulders.
Edit: I'm 22
And for the end of stupid polls.
I'm 51, so my opinion is irrelevant.
Oh, and as regards Maize, I don't care. I want Michigan teams to win, and I want to be proud of them. I'd rather have Maize head to toe and 12 - 0, then tradition and a 4 loss team. But that is a false choice. Maize jerseys, or the lack thereof, have little to nothing to do with the number of wins.
My only comment is that it has got to be really hard to come up with something that is cool and classic, rather than tacky, horrendous, and trite. I won't say that maize would never work, but I haven't been encouraged by the mock ups I have seen so far. What would the pants be?
For comparison, I have looked around the interwebz, and find it interesting that neither USC nor LSU nor FSU nor ND use gold / yellow jerseys. I think these may be the most popular teams with gold / yellow in their colors. The one photo I found was from Georgia Tech, and it wasn't impressive. Somehow, the vision of a neon maize jersey is just painful to consider. It would be so loud, so overwhelming, so over the top. Again, I won't say it can't happen, but I have my doubts.
For me, the best real world example is when the Chicago Bears wear orange jerseys. I just don't like it nearly as much as their traditional look. It isn't the end of the world when it happens, but I don't like it that much. Here is a link to the Rams wearing what looks like maize: http://www.uni-watch.com/2010/12/05/nfl-color-vs-color-part-iii-a-modest-proposal/. I don't think it looks that good, to be honest.
You certainly had a lot to say...
Our colors are the best; why not try creative versions of the them every now & then?
New isn't better just by virtue of its novelty. Why try something new when what you have is great? You going to date a new chick every once in awhile even though you like your wife?
No. Now get off my lawn.
I'm 25 going on 70.
Our home unis are classic, but our away unis need a little help. We can never quite figure out what to do with them. Maize and white is not all that great of a look.
So, Maize jerseys on the away unis would look cool a couple of times a year for big games. Would freak out OSU.
The fact that I'm not leaving my age tells you my age.
No, it just does not look like Michigan football. When I think of the program as a whole, I think back to the early days, and not once do I see maize jerseys. The blue and white unis are perfect the way they are.
I'm 19. Who says the newer generations don't care for traditional Michigan values?
I like pretty colors. Maize is good, maybe we can splash some 'pastel easter blue' in there too.
I'm 24 and there's a reason it hasn't happened in over 130 years.
The home jerseys must not and will not change. But I'd love maize road jerseys. The current ones are pretty unremarkable. White jerseys and yellow pants just do not look very imposing. Maize jerseys with blue pants would look great -- see Cal -- and I'm sure the players would love them.
I definitely would not want to use maize for our home jerseys but for our boring white away jerseys i would not mind trying it. I would say that the maize jersey would have to be paired with blue pants. Also, I suggest some kind of blue on the shoulders of the jersey, in a similar fashion to the legacy jerseys, simply because I do not think that straight maize would look very good.
no way. which of these looks is supposed to be "sick" or "cool"??? I'm 21.
(sorry the last one is terrible quality, but I think it still illustrates the point...)
He should have yellow shoelaces.
But this proves that Denard looks good in anything. Sackcloth, cardboard, anything.
The only thing worse than maize jerseys would be blue pants. Do we want to be Indiana or a Arena Football team? Perfection should not be messed with. If M wears blue pants I'll lose my mind.
I wouldn't have a problem if they wore maize jerseys for ONE game. Blue pants would be cool though. I've always wanted to see us go all blue.
Have none of you people ever bothered to look at what actual teams that have done this shit look like? We've seen Purdue wear gold jerseys, Cal wear yellow, etc. They all look like absolute trash. It boggles the mind that this is even a discussion.
A commenter above noted that the major teams with yellow/gold (USC, ND, etc.) don't do this nonsense (which, duh.) They don't feel the *need* to, because they have an identity. What makes college sports great is that teams have real identities, grounded in communities that go generations deep. This means that not everyone has to do what everyone else does - individuality & uniqueness should be cherished and encouraged, not frowned upon as getting in the way of $$$.
Mid-20s, but I've been kicking kids off my lawn since my mid-teens. :)
about identity. I never thought about it that way, really. Also mid-twenties.
No. we are not Oregon.

I think it would be great to see once a year. I would also be interested to see if the people who think it is a terrible idea also think Michigan needs to go back to Nike, "because that's what the kids like."
Here's one opinion:
I say no to maize jerseys. I also think the "adidas sucks go back to Nike" schtick is ridiculous. It's pretty much the same exact stuff and not at all something to care about. jme
I'd like to just wear the blue every week, home or on the road. NO on the maize.
No way. Nope. Never. Do. Not want. So, no.
Are perfect and suitable for Men's basketball, but no deal.
if DB shoves one down our throats one day but definitely prefer he doesn't.
