WHAT IS THIS BULLSHIT!
Michigan's Nike Pro-Combat Uniforms
And because some posters below sound actually serious, BHGP, an Iowa Blog, has been unveiling their (quite funny) B1G jersey mock ups. Click the link.
My eyes! My eyes!
Could be one of my top 5 internet pet peeves that these same stupid, ugly Pro Combat mock-ups get posted all over the place like they're actually legitimate. Enough already.
Is there really a single person who would look at that and think those were legitimate jerseys Nike was designing?
however I think it's misplaced here. I know the University and Nike have numerous resources at their disposal but I'm pretty sure adamantium isn't one of them.
Lighten up Francis!!!
...is whatever combo of denseness and lack of sense of humor led to your post.
This will not end well.
I greatly preferred Indiana's.
Personally I like Iowa's with the boots although IU's helmet would be #1 no question.
I loved the name they came up with for the Iowa Boots.
"NIKE AIR ZOOM SHT-KKR CLEATS"
Knight throwing a chair as the logo was awesome
That's horrible. Just horrible.
It's supposed to be.
It's Rich Cyclops-blasting Tate. Pretty nice detail if you ask me
Robinson's innacurate you say? Well all receivers now have an extra 14" of reach and can stick the ball on a spike.
We're going to have the best freakin stiff-arms in the nation.
Michigan's Marvel Pro-Combat Uniforms ?
I thought I hated Indiana's then I saw this, what is DB thinking? We're the Wolverines based on an animal, not some crappy comic for 12 year olds! I'm writing him an e-mail right now, this bullshit has to stop now! First the Arby's logo, then the ***KING HASTAGS on the field, then rock music, then the band, now he's messing with the uniforms!
But if you are, this is my favorite comment ever made on this board. You bring shame to the great name of Patrick Bateman.
You must be that dickhead Marcus Halberstram.
Now if we play the University of Ottawa Sabretooths, we are SO READY!
How much do you think Stan Lee is paying Dave Brandon? Also, ammend in the contract, Stan Lee gets to make a cameo apperance during the 4th quarter as a place-holder from Pahokee.
Stan Lee didn't even show up in his own reality show for cameos. Anyone else miss those shows?
And it could be worse.
I don't know about you, but I love those Indiana helmets. I would definitely cheer for them in all non-Michigan game if they wore those.
Those Indiana helmets are ingenious. And the Iowa unis are hilarious. Can't wait to see what this guy comes up with for Ohio - perhaps a tattoo-related theme? A wad of cash on the helmet?
I cringe when I think of what they might do for Penn State
Do people really think Michigan is going to dress their players up like Wolverine from xmen? It's a joke people. BUT if Michigan ever plays a game on Halloween, it would be pretty funny to come out during pregame warmups wearing something similar.
I totally have my game day outfit to go with these.
Urban Meyer's "reaction":
"When reached for comment, Ohio State head coach Urban Meyer expressed outrage at the new uniforms. "So, these Wolverines want to play rough?!?", Meyer said as he stalked angrily around his multimillion dollar football lair. - Urban "Magneto" Meyer
Actually, now that I think about it, I wonder if his first words to the team were in fact, "Welcome to the future."
As for the claws, we could always teach the defensive backfield to shred blocks from now on. Well played, BHGP, but you've done better. I will say, I really did like Indiana's - anything which commemorates Bobby Knight tirades is OK in my book.
I thought we had a contract with Adidas! Heads are going to roll.
This is fake
after seeing IU's, seems like he phoned it in here
Yeah this isn't really even making fun of us at all. I was kind of hoping for more.
KILL IT WITH FIRE!!!
This reminds me, I need to head down to the hammock district.
Nice try, but that's 21 so there should be a patch.
YOU CAN'T FOOL ME, BHGP!!
BHGP does good work and their pro combat uni special has been no exception.
That would never work. Those stripes on the side are definitely NOT traditional Michigan stripes.
these are hilarious
We can't wear these because we aren't affiliated with Nike.
nice, not nice. Look so fugly that I gotta say it twice.
Why are people responding seriously to this? Or am I missing something?
At least the helmets still have wings...the boots are epic.
"Our helmets have mutton chops"
this is the funniest thing since the Sparties unis when they played us. I hope we are taking a good look at these because I have heard about some Addidas jinx or hex on teams wearing their (Addidas) uniforms so I have heard some fans wanting Nike back and I am ready to take on any jinx or hex or whatever X there might be. I will never sell my soul for Nike and will be ready to raise hell over Nike wanting to get back with the winners (Mich) whenever they try because when we win the MNC they'll be knockin on our door.
...at how many people are not getting the joke. This is Michigan, fergodsakes. Get a freaking sense of humor, people.
It's what a uniform would look like if Hollywood street performers organized a team dedicated to MANBALL!
Unless they're injecting adamantium into every single recruit after they sign their LOI this should never happen.
You have to understand that when you post something like that the trolls come out to feed.
I would love to watch this whole clip...
Why is Nike wasting their time with a team that has an Adidas account?
If they really wanted to have a laugh at UM expense, I would have either gone either with an auto-based uni (replace wings with cadilac fins ala 60's) or a wine-and-cheese theme. Helmet would be a wheel of brie, shoes would be wine bottles. Jersey would be a button-down oxford, maybe with a sports coat with patches on the elbows. Khakis for pants.
It's really amazing how many people are missing the point on this. How do the boots and claws not give it away?
upset that I looked at this article. How stupid and what a waste of time.
I'm reminded of this:
DB doin work, #adamantium
EFF off my lawn!
Not gonna lie....these would be sweet....in a video game!
