Anyone else notice during the BTN pregame that Michigan is sporting different road jerseys? The maize piping is now goes across the back of the jersey, and is now less visible. Another tribute to former Bigten champions?
they decided it, but this has been rumored for weeks, so no surprises here. Anything else look different? I'm still watching Iowa-PSU
as they only show brief clips of players warming up. Doesn't look like much else though.
I was going to wait to post this question til it was confirmed they were different...but now that I know they are, does anyone know when M-Den will get them in? I was hoping they'd be there for tomorrow because of the alumni association's 20% off discount but I didn't seem them on the site today.
Biggest thing seems to be the piping has moved to arch around and over the names on the back of the jersey, plus the block M. Haven't gotten a clear view of the front of the jersey.
Junior's Desmond patch is blue. Looks completely out of place on the white jersey.
Piping continues under the shoulder to follow the contour of the shoulder to the collar on the front of the jersey.
This is simply because Michigan switched to the Adidas Tech-Fit jersey template. The old template had fabric slots on the side of the jersey which allowed for the maize piping. The new template does not have the piping slots.
- I've been reading this site since the old Haloscan days back in 2006. Five years later, I'm making my first post.
Congrats. I'm glad you decided to speak. I remember the haloscan days fondly.
Why are the arm sleeves so big? Who wants to see some dude's armpit? Can it fit the sleeve a little tighter?
Haven't we known this since the spring? Aren't these the same that some of the players were wearing back then?
Regardless, the loss of the torso horns is the best thing to happen to U-M uniforms since the addition of maize outlines on the numbers.
Is RVB wearing the ok'd road jersey though?
Stupid iPhone. "Ok'd" is supposed to be "old."
Big Will is wearing the old style uniform. I snapped a photo via my phone and will attempt to upload it using the m go blog app
they were getting rid of the piping on the away jerseys. Regardless, they need to lose the piping it looks tacky..not a fan
Big chunk of the defensive line guys are wearing the old style.
I don't like the tech-fits. They're too stretchy and it helps the other team drag them down
I agree. Fitz was brought down multiple times by his jersey against minn and denard nearly got de-robed today. I think it's a problem with the jersey.
Love the way they played the second half, would love it more if all of the piping were eliminated. My two cents, though I realize nobody asked...
asked......wait you already said that. Remember, here at MGOBLOG we value your opinion.
Some players were wearing the Old style uniforms (mentioned above) with the yellow flares on the back sides...Now i thought that was illegal? Because i know that the team has to wear socks a certain way...up or down...everyone has to be the same.
Now to me you are the University of Michigan and not to have everyone wearing the same jerseys is kinda embarrasing/pathetic on the university and on adidas. I mean come on you cant have everyone wear the same jersey? this isnt D2
No such rule. Some players have socks, some don't.....this isn't the NFL, everyone doesn't have to look quite alike.
A few years ago Sean Glennon at Virginia Tech actually wore a Georgia Tech jersey during the VT/GT game in Atlanta, with black tape over the "Georgia Tech" wordmark and his name written in Sharpie. Seems someone left a jersey behind in Blacksburg. College is way lenient about it.
holy crap....just saw this...damn!
Your right...When i played D2 they made us wear socks up or down as a team...just thought it was because we had 2.
(b) Socks must be of the same color and design. Beginning in 2010 there is no reference to length of the socks.
You must have really wanted to point out that you played D2 football.
ARTICLE 3. a. Players of opposing teams shall wear jerseys of contrasting
colors. Players on the same team shall wear jerseys of the same color and
I would say they were not of the same design...I will so its a little picky, but to have players wearing 2 different designed uniforms is not acceptable at the University of Michigan and for adidas.
Sweeeet! Good memories.
In honor of us being back, bring those back.
Denard also switched to the old jersey I noticed in the 4th quarter. They are the new adidas TechFit jerseys. I like them. They also have a cooler font for the names, and a blue block M above the names like on the home jerseys.
Man, I was way too caught up in the game to even notice. Will have to go back and look.
We need a Heiko batsignal because this question MUST be resolved in the presser.
My guess as to why some were wearing the old jerseys is that - as others have said - the new techfit jerseys make it easier for a player to be pulled down by the jersey, giving the other team a competitive advantage... hence some pleayers wearing the old jerseys, eliminating that advantage.
And Adidas once again has egg on their face.
Anyone that at this point still maintains they're better than Nike is seriously deluded. The only thing they've done that hasn't sucked were the UTL unis, which ended up looking really good. (Also helps that we won that game in epic fashion.)
did anyone else notice that some linemen were sporting the old away unis?
I know one thing....NIKE wouldn't allow 2 different uniforms being worn in the same game.
There fine with me I think they should go white pants to
