Are the Sparties the only announced Maize Out? My tickets highlight that game but not the Dedication Game. I plan to wear maize but thought having a Maize Out for that game would be a nice touch. Maybe it is but would appreciate the input. Go Blue !!!!
I'm going to be wearing a maize shirt under my jersey. I'll take the jersey off for the game.
a maize out. 20,000 students and about another 20,000 fans already wear maize to every game. Just make it the regular dress and the stadium will look as great as the ND Game last year every week.
The problem with Maize Outs is that we do not have Maize Jerseys. Many people that own a nice replica jersey wish to wear it to the games they go to. However, most of these would be blue, and not contribute to a Maize Out.
I agree with this. I'd love to see a "blue out"
We've tried that before. In 2005 the student shirt was blue and there were a couple designated blue-outs. It wasn't as visually striking as the maize outs have been. It ended up making the crowd look like a bunch of empty seats.
There isn't really a solution to the jersey issue, but I've really liked the maize outs. The one for the 2009 ND game looked awesome.
that people wear the white jerseys. It's not Maize, but at least it won't dim the color at all.
I think that looks pretty sweet. I'd imagine that would look good under the lights against ND in 2011.
...I may not have my glasses on but I do not see the alleged sweetness here.
IIRC, the first time there was an organized effort for a "Blue Out" was for the 2002 State game, when we spanked them 49-3. Pretty sure the first Maize Out ever was the PSU game earlier in the same season. The Maize Out's definitely look better and have improved in participation steadily since the '02. The ND game last year was awesome.
Go Blue. Wear Maize.
so far that's two of you.
I wondered the same thing when I got my tix in the mail...but then I realized that it doesn't matter since students almost always wear maize to games, and the "down in front" crowd would ignore a Maize-Out if they don't have maize-colored, weather appropriate clothing.
Anyway, my point is, every game is a Maize-Out IMHE.
Yeah, every game is (or should) be a Maize-Out regardless of when it's announced. The "down in front" crowd, I think, has been better with the maize the last couple seasons but still not great.
Overall, the crowd looks better than in the 80's and 90's when most of the fans wore white.
Every game is a maize out. Go Blue, wear Maize, period.
I ordered tickets off StubHub for the UCONN game and they came in last week. My tickets look like standard event tickets, not the typical Michigan tickets I get every year. Is this normal?
yep that's normal for stubhub
Maybe we can get that B-25 on the front page to drop large maize paint bombs.
Point is you get more participation from fans other than students when its printed on the ticket ... like the MSU game. Sad but true. Maize it is every game !!!
The mgoshirt collection could use the addition of a maize out-practice jersey style jersey.
Was thinking instead of having numbers, have BO on the front and back.
Know this is an old thread, but this is what happens Monday at work.
What you guys think?
I wear maize to every game and gladly take the heat for not wearing the consistently ugly greek life shirts. IMHE, maize jerseys are for hockey, and I don't wear my white jersey to games. I've bought maize polos for my grandparents and shirts for my dad, uncles, cousins, etc. so they have no excuse. My grandma was confused at first, but she really likes the polo so she wears it to warmer games now.
