What do we all think? I'm personally a fan.
Edit: Here is a full version in Blue
just an alternate? Our jerseys MUST say Michigan. I have always thought the "Spartans" on Staee's jerseys looks terrible. If this is a proposed permanent jersey I will be upset.
I agree to a certain extent. The football jerseys should never have "Michigan" or "Wolverines" across the top front, but with basketball jerseys, it doesn't bother me as much. I'd prefer them to just say "MICHIGAN" but it won't bother me that much if they say "Wolverines." They can wear hot pink for all I care so long as they win.
Their whites that just said 'state' in script we're pretty fly. Not sure if there's a good Michigan equivalent though.
I did like those.
Why MUST they say Michigan?
I know I know this is Michigan fergodsakes. But really.
Our jerseys SHOULD say Michigan.
Look, I know we are the Wolverines. Fine, OK. We don't have a mascot, the wolverine does not feature prominently in any of Michigan gear, it has never been a big part of the program's identity. Victors would actually make more sense on the front of our jerseys than Wolverines.
No victors would've been pretty dumb
why would they put No Victors on the front of the jersey? That would be completely assinine.
You're a big idiot.
I definitely prefer "Michigan" on the jerseys to "Wolverines," but "Victors" would be worse still.
"Victors" would make little sense to anyone who isn't a Michigan fan, and even some of our fans would have to stop and think for a second. (And if we lost a game while wearing "Victors" jerseys, we'd never hear the end of it.)
Think you are underestimating the impact and recognizability of the victors on a national scope. Maybe it should not be on the jerseys but there would be few in the country who would not understand it.
I like the Spartans ones also.
I am not sure if I would prefer Michigan instead of Wolverines or if I am just so used to seeing Michigan I am biased. Compared to other Adidas jerseys they don't look half bad. Hopefully they don't tear like last year.
It's strange how some have the school name (Louisville, UCLA, Kansas) while others have the mascots (Wolverines, Badgers, Bearcats)
Especially after last year's mess (Michigan never even wore last year's adidas alternate). Some schools probably preferred having their name on the chest versus their nickname.
I'm almost positive they wore the blue alternates at least once last year. Perhaps during the B1G tournament? I don't think they had long sleeves though.
We all HATED the maize, but we wore the blue...I think against PSU in the tournament.
We only wore the blue because the regular blue road unis were shelved after the jersey-tear disaster at Minnesota. After that game they wore maize as much as possible, and rotated through other uniforms (including year-old versions) when blue was vital.
We wore the zubazz blues against Wisconsin in the B1G tourney and we played like crap. We did not wear the sleeves and we did not see those jerseys after that. I really liked the shorts b/c the block M on them was HUGE!
I'd rather have the maize out ones.
Yea, those were so sharp. Wonder why we haven't used them since 2012-2013? They definitely were the coolest alternates we have worn recently both in football and basketball.
You mean the ones where you couldn't tell who was who except by skin color?
However if one can't recognize a key player on his favorite team by his face then I have to question how much one actually follows said team.
The damn numbers should be legible.
Only partly in jest. Of course it was easy to tell who was who when they did closeups and non-action shots and stuff. On the other hand, it made it ridiculously hard to tell who was doing what in real-time TV action. As in, when we actually care who is who; "there's Trey Burke" is not real exciting or useful information in the walk-toward-the-huddle shot. As said above: The damn numbers should be legible. It'd also be nice if "MICHIGAN" and the player's name were legible too, but I'm of an older mindset and understand that sort of thing now takes a back seat to looking totally siccccckkkkckckckc.
I still liked them.
Eh. I don't hate it, which is a good thing. This jersey release is comparable to those weird print shorts they used last year as the blue unis (but pretty much rejected otherwise). And on that scale these are much better. I still actually like the existing uniforms quite a bit, but these aren't awful.
We're like the anti-mascot school. Everyone knows we're the Wolverines but everythign is just "MICHIGAN". For all intensive purposes, Michigan might as well be our real mascot
How intense is our purpose?
It's all the frilly trim, hidden behind the Purdue player above, that detracts from it.
Other than "Wolverines" replacing "Michigan", I actually like the uniform pictured by the OP. More specifically, I dislike it less than our current uniforms because it lessens (but does not eliminate) the frilly trim.
Apparently I've been saying that phrase wrong by whole life. Now I know. Negbang away
Don't worry about it - for the longest time I thought "making ends meet" had something to do with cooking a meat dish of some sort.
For all In Tents and Purpoises.
For all, in tents and porpoises. (And said with a Curly Howard voice.)
Like the unis, but I don't like sharing designs with other schools. Michigan should have it's own style
Every school in this picture may make the NCAA tournament EXCEPT Notre Dame. It's on Nebraska to make it so.
Lol Indiana is in that picture...so no.
EDIT: My mistake. I thought the player in front of Tennessee was wearing "Huskers" not "Hoosiers." I stand corrected.
he's confusing Nebraska with Indiana.
There's a joke in here about Nebraska basketball getting confused with Indiana basketball... I can't come up with it but I'm pretty sure the punch line is Tom Crean.
Now that I look at it closer, it appears that it says Huskers.
What if it's BadgERS?! And it's just their white jerseys?
OMG! HEAD ASPLODE!
that's not Nebraska?
I don't mind it. What does Baylor's jersey say though? Looks like it starts out "Sic..." across the top. That doesn't make sense for the Baylor University Bears...in Waco, TX.
Maybe it says "Sic 'em Bears"?
