Per MDen catalogue-
EDIT: The uniforms pictured ARE NOT THE NEW ONES. They are the same ones as the team wore. Read the note at the center of the page. It says to check MDen in September.
Neck looks weird and I wish we'd move more towards the Fab Five shorts...bigger M on the side panel rather than in front.
That said, not too drastically different.
I want that avatar picture.
The shorts look weird. But maybe it's just how that dude's wearing them.
or do those actually look maize?
Good catch. The athletic department has made it clear they want to go in this direction, and these certainly look more maize-y than last year's. Though that could very well be the lighting or any other effect, it's a very subtle difference.
Pretty sure those are the jerseys we had last year. It says check Mden in September.
The differences may just be due to being replicas rather than authentic.
I'm just thankful we don't have pants for shorts like other teams..
Sweet Maize jerseyzz
the Uconn home and home, I know.
I'm taking this off the original topic, but I actually like that road game against UConn. It'll provide some early road game experience without, hopefully, posing too much threat of an out-of-conference loss. That 2013 schedule is challenging, but there aren't any games that you look at and say, "We're in trouble there."
2013 schedule --
home - CMU, ND, Akron, Minny, Indiana, Neb, OSU
away - UConn, PSU, MSU, Northwestern, Iowa
It sure would be nice to have a fifth-year Denard Robinson with that schedule (ARGH NO REDSHIRT).
touche, but Nike Pro Combat >>> Whatever the hell we wore against MSU last year.
Not sure about that. They're both pretty dreadful. Nike actually added a new color (gold) to MSU's ProCombat look.
The reason they switched to adidas is adidas is paying 8 million dollars a year to carry the michigan line and Nike was only willing to pay 1 million a year. It was a financial no brainer.
Nike was paying us $4M a year, not $1M. Regardless, it was a big financial step up to go to Adidas.
there's going to be a new MMB jersey released to the public in a few weeks.
The Michigan Marching Band is getting jerseys?
I'd be ok with minor tweaks. I've got my jersey pet peeves, but subtle updates to the hoops uniforms aren't on the list.
Since you all (read "no one") asked:
Home football jersey is sacred. Do not touch. Same for Helmets (I am OK with helmet #s but don't like "good play" stickers)
Road FB Jersey - could update annually and I wouldn't care. I don't mind the "Bama" design or the Sugar Bowl design much... but I hate that they're 1 off designs. Enough with the 1-day jerseys. If the "bama" design was just our new road uniform I'd be totally fine with that. Same with the Sugar Bowl jersey. But in our last 13 games (including Bama) we're going to have worn 7 (!!) different jerseys. What the hell?
Bring back the Fab Five era shorts NOW!
I have always love the maize ones for home and love the road blues... I have never been a fan of the white jerseys.. I bet they are very similar to the ones already but very excited for michigan basketball this year!!
Will it be covered in Arby's logos?
...this is my approximate and very accurate (probably) rendering of the new basketball jerseys (made in MS Paint):
-Tristripes on the shoulders. Adidas is paying big money, people!
-Block M replaces the regular M on the previous jersey a la hockey. Fuck design flow. Branding is everything! Impossible is nothing!
Am I a horrible person for kind of liking how those shoulder stripes look?
EDIT: Apparently I am...
No, they look like a fierce wolverine scratched them. Pretty sweet.
The Uni's look a little tight.. Can you say shmediums
Vinnie Johnson approves...
Yay let's find new ways to advertise. Moooo money
As someone who bought two jerseys last season, I am disappointed. Every FREAKING TIME I buy a jersey the player either leaves or the design changes. Not exaggerating here!
Or a walk-on's.
...further proof that there is no good reason for an adult to be buying jerseys.
I personally think the whole "adults shouldn't wear jerseys" is ridiculous. I only wear them for games and that's it. Period. I consider it bad luck to wear them when I'm not at or watching a game.
Let's go back to the Fab Five look, please.
I disgree with a lot of the negative attitude towards anything this company tries to do. IMO, we need a new look for the basketball and those shorts look like a huge step in the right direction. Fab Five shorts? UMM, that great look has been done, all the way from Arkansas to UCLA and back. I mean board shorts are Still popular, its been fifteen years.Twenty since the boys were doing it. Lets go with a new type of fabric and something that is the next look in line, much as the Fab Five did in their day. Adidas has done a fair job of keeping our look traditonal , MSU aside.
I'm not sure what you're getting at with board shorts and fabrics and such. I'm talking about the actual design - with a big block M on the sides (which is Dave Brandon's preferred logo anyway) and the traditional trim.
Incidentally, they weren't just Fab Five uniforms - we wore basically that same uniform throughout the '60s and '70s, too.
Look better than those tiny ass euro short that are trying to make a comeback.. No thanks.. 80's are over and skinny jeans look horrific
