Curious to know what people are planning to wear on Saturday? Are we trying to maize out our side of the stadium?
mesmerism! presidential assassinations! circuses on fire!
Go Blue, Wear Maize. My favorite michigan gear is blue, but for gamedays you gotta wear maize.
Is it permissible for myself at 25 to wear a jersey?
Back in the day it was cool to wear a jersey anywhere at anytime; when did this change anyways?
Back in the day it was also awesome to wear a Chris Webber jersey w/ black nike socks up to the knees.
Absolutely. They sell them, people buy them. I don't see any issue with wearing a jersey to the game.
At 25, you're right at that jersey-wearing tipping point between fleetingly permissible and early asshattery. I say go with it, but tread with caution.
Thanks. Only asking because when I was at an Auburn game, fans were mocking us "Yankees" for wearing jerseys to football games, calling it childish.
I responded with, SEC fans having Justin Bieber hair cuts and dress up like they are in route to a funeral home for their games.
to make up for their general lack of it.
No. Jerseys are for 3-13 years old. I do own one but I have it stocked away and I wear it around the house on occasion. However, I do not wear it in public.
Having said that, wear a polo.
Wearing a football jersey to a football game makes one a douche? GTFO.
Yes. But that's just like my opinion, man.
and don't have an issue with adults wearing jerseys. The only reason I have been getting away from wearing one is because an all maize crowd looks better.
As a head's up, 'Bama fans (or students/alumni from southern schools* anyway anyway) typically don't. They make fun of us for wearing jerseys. Students/Alumni typically wear preppy clothes in their school color to games.
* I base this on experiences at Georgia Tech, Georgia, and conversations with alumni of SEC schools, with the exception of Florida. Gators wear jean shorts!
I won't be in Dallas, but I plan on rocking my #32 jersey to the bar here in Baltimore (bought it in the '99 for A-Train and now it doubles for Kovacs. Score). I'm 26, and I really just don't care if other people care. I don't understand the opposition to adults wearing jerseys.
You can still wear a jersey you bought when you were 13?
Excellent question, but yes. I was a pretty huge kid. By huge I mean grew tall early and was pretty fat. Through high school I slimmed down and stayed roughly the same height, so my large Nike jersey still fits.
Maize. Gotta make our sections pop
The Maize can be seen miles away. Nick Satan will love it.
Nick Satan isn't funny or clever. Please either 1) stop using lame name misspelling or 2) go back to mlive.
Thanks and have a great Monday!
Damn, Wyoming must be putting you in a horrible mood.
maize shirt, blue hat. And, yes, if you are actually attending the game you may wear a jersey. Otherwise, grown men wearing jerseys is strictly prohibited.
I respectfully disagree. Maybe in a few years this will become more apparent to me, but I feel like as long as it is gameday and I am out watching the game, the jersey is appropriate. If you're wearing a jersey on a Tuesday night out for dinner, then I agree with you.
Although I would add a caveat that the player you're wearing can have "some" impact on the amount of douchery you're giving off.
A few years back, I spent good hard-earned money on a Forcier jersey (an "away" one, no less). Today, this would not be an acceptable gameday bar jersey, and I would be welcoming the inevitable taunts associated with my perceived sexual preference.
Denard is ok. Also classic Wolverines like Howard, Woodson, Taylor, Brady -- all exempt from this rule.
^^This combo right here. I would love to wear blue but it just doesnt pop as good on TV/crowd shots and UTL was freaking a-maize-ing with all the pom poms and shirts.
I can't decide on if I want to wear my Maize student section shirt or my Denard (home) jersey. Any recommendations?
Maize sideline polo for me.
Overall, you've got to go Maize. Stand out, be brilliant!
1) Maize because it stands out, I'll be wearing the Team 133 shirt that you can find at all MDEN's.
2) If your going to be outside tailgating maize will keep you cooler in the 100 degree heat Dallas will be having.
On a second note, anyone driving down from Michigan and a litlte more than concerned about driving through Hurrican Isaac on Friday? I'm starting to freak a little when I look at a map of the path its taking, its pretty much all through Arkansas on Friday when I'll be making my way to Dallas.
Isaac will really impact Louisiana/Mississippi and western Tennessee/eastern Arkansas. By the time it gets north, it'll be really nothing aside from a low pressure system with rain. You should be OK.
Thats exactly what I'll be driving through. Leaving Nashville Friday morning and going through Memphis into Arkansas straight to Dallas. Hopefully its just some rains, and nothing extreme.
Rain is all - will only improve the further west you go. Plus, there will be a lot of bands so you may miss rain completely depending on timing.
A little worried but nothing we can do now, we are leaving from Kentucky so we get to enjoy the slosh through Tennessee and Arkansas. We are driving straight through so mountains+wife driving first makes me worry for my life.
Mountains? What mountains?
You are safe from the hurricane.
The West Nile virus on the other hand . . .
When did this rule of Maize only at games come up? Yes, Maize Outs you have to wear Maize but any other time is fair game. I wear my adidas #2 Home jersey to every home game I'm at unless it's a Maize Out.
Maize zip up hoodie works in Michigan. Down here in Arlington, not so much.
Maize really just looks best on TV, bright, etc.
Its gonna be 100.. Light colors are a must. Base layer of UA Coldblack Heatgear at the tailgate then throwing on maize dri fit right before the game.
Not enough points to post but I was at the Cowboys 1st home pre-season game Saturday night and have some traffic/cheap parking ($20) advice for those who may not be familiar with the area. you can tweet me @jamestsawyers if interested...feel free to alert the board if you have the power to do so any of you...
Any news/ideas on parking? Please share!! Thanks.
Blue Woodson jersey
Gotta wear maize -- going to wear my old A-Train home jersey for tailgating because it is very light and good for the 100 degree heat. But when it is time to stagger into the stadium with a nice buzz, gotta switch to a maize shirt because it looks best on TV. Make it so, M faithful!
Should I be wearing my #15 (Steve Breaston) or #86 which has doubled as Mario Manningham and Kevin Koger?
I'll be watching from the safe confines of a sports bar in Minnesota.
Is anyone really wearing long sleeves with the West Nile breakout.
