Is it messed up that the biggest thing that bothers me about these is the split M?
to play football, not to play trumpet
Is it messed up that the biggest thing that bothers me about these is the split M?
But KayKay is a solid poster/contributer to this site so I upvoted the post. Don't shoot the messenger!
Yes it is messed up.
FIVE UGLYS out of FIVE
And ten STUPIDS out of five.
awful, just awful. I have no further comment.
I loathe that helmet.
I actually would like to see a Maize Jersey with Maize Pants and NO stripes on the shoulders, I hated the stripes in the MSU and Sugar Bowl Games, please no stripes and a normal looking Maize Jersey would look really cool I think.
AND DON'T MESS WITH THE HELMET FERGODSAKES!!!
I agree. We should have a Maize version of uniform for all sports...
well, I DO mind the designs. Adding Zubaz would be an improvement.
We're Michigan not Oregon.
Correction: we were Michigan not Oregon. Perhaps you missed last season.
A couple of stripes on the sleeve does not make us Oregon.
I'm a youngin' and I still find these atrocious.
These might be some of the worst concept jerseys I've ever seen. Not only are they completely unrealistic, they look like it was poorly done on photoshop.
These are really bad. They're so bad I can't even begin to describe it.
Eventually, new uniforms won't be cool and we can go back to not wearing clown suits once or twice a season.
"Huh - there's some open space here. Eh, I'll just fill it with a split M."
Why would BTN post this? They were almost certainly created in MS Paint. The number on the right shoulder of the left guy doesn't even completely fit on the person.
Why?Just why? It's burned into my eyes. I must remove my eyes.
worst numeral font ever, wrong logo...
there is literally NOTHING good about these designs.
Look like something a cyclist would wear while at the farmers market buying organic crispy kale. That's never good.
THESE ARE SO AWESOME
My OCD makes me want to center all the split-M's.
I genuinely thought this was a joke when I saw this picture, like the Lloyd Brady commemorative unis in this MGoBoard post from a few months ago. To call these hideous is an understatement, I know kindergarteners who could design something much better.
that Charles Sollars is unclear on the concept of a "concept."
lol some of these remind of air force for some reason.. brutal..
Some of the logo's like the adidas on some of them are so distorted and goofy looking
i hate the fact that people pay attention to this kind of poorly designed, tasteless garbage. apparently any ol putz with a copy of photoshop can make noise on the internet. this just stylistically and technically sucks. move along.
Wow, those are turrrible.
I threw up in my mouth a lot bit. Wonder what it would take for people to get to the point of thinking that this is a great idea.
Oregon will like it
Sauce. Can't believe the press these things are getting...?
There is one good concept of the bunch. Look at the second Helmet concept. It is simply brilliant.
he has are even more hideous, if that's possible. They had fucking buckeye leaf print on the jerseys. The only one that didn't burn my eyes was a black Nebraska uniform that actually looked pretty cool. Although, of course, if I were a Nebraska fan I'd think it was shit.
How long can the forces of traditional, tasteful uniform design hold out against the almighty dollar? Not to mention concept mascots.
Jeremy Gallon does not support this.
I no like these!
this picture out just so I can burn it
I kind of like them. The only thing I truely hate is the helmet...don't mess with a classic. I think I could get used to the Michigan symbol stamped on the uni's and the numbers moved to the shoulder. To me..it says "This is Michigan" and I just can't argue with that statement.
Both OSU and Michigan should be above alternate unis.
Anyone know when they will be offered?
Ever since the dawn of the internet I have seen things I wish I could "unsee". This is one of them as well as everything I saw on crazyshit.com in 1999 when I was still in HS.
The Athletic Department has received numerous letters expressing concern about the future of Michigan's uniforms. Today, we are happy to allay these concerns by announcing that we have partnered with Charles Sollars to create the future of Michigan. Do not fear, Big Blue Nation, the "split block M" in the leaked design is only a placeholder for a completely redesigned Arby's logo.
If you play this right it could be as good as the TPryor guy.
This is worse than the one which had the big Adidas logo across Van Bergen's ass.
those two could never play for Michigan. Look at their baby cow muscles! That design must be for an alternate universe. Has DB's brain gone to pot?
Don't you know that you will be blasted? We're Michigan, fergodsakes.
The guys just designing stuff, it's not like we're going to use them. More power to him if thats what he wants to do in my opinion. I mean who knows how much experience this guy has? But yes I would prefer NOT to mess with the classic of Michigans uniforms. An occasional alternate is alright, as long as their not completely hideous.
Normally I'd say these "uniforms" will never see the light of day, but with Brandon thinking that uniform changes were a good idea last year, we may never know.
These are appalling in every sense of the word. Everything from the split M to the helmets. Why would one EVER change the helmets?
So I read everyone's comments before I actually looked at those...things. So I of course thought you all were a bunch of over-exaggerating ninnies. Needless to say, the gif below closely reflects my reaction upon first seeing those god awful monstrosities:
Not sure which one looks worse between the white helmet with the maize wings or the all maize helmets.
with those shoes, the rest can be on Jerel Worthy's next tattoo.
The first was simply that we are graduating far too many designers. The second was
to somebody with no real creative talent who doesn't know what the fuck they're doing, or why they're doing it. The Michigan helmet and uniform are not broken, yet people still insist on trying to fix them.
And yes, we are graduating far too many designers, and have been for almost two decades.
but they need Zubaz warm up pants
Edit: sorry for the zubaz double post
So terrible that its almost funny. Who would do that and why?
Who ever came up with that needs to be beaten with a shovel.
EDIT: I'm not sure how embedding pictures work
But I don't see the elk & moose anywhere, are they maybe on the back?
If it ain't broke don't fix it! Our uniforms are legendary just the way they are.
and I thought I didn't like the UTL jerseys...
Thanks for ruining my evening. 'Preciate that.
I dont wanna hear or see any more uniform changes,at least the home ones. We already have the sweetest lookin home uniforms of all time, without question. If you want to tinker with the road uniforms go ahead, I've always thought they were a big drop off, from the home uniforms.
Wow. This is retarded.
Jesus, at least now working on my $%&*ing taxes will feel like an improvement over reading MGoBlog.
Congratulations, I didn't think that was possible.
Yea these are less than appealing, but at least the guy made an effort and was having some fun with it..lets not rip him entirely. And truthfully, if someone would have posted the UTL uniforms 5 years ago they probably would have gotten the same reaction.
Don't mess with the wing helmet!
Don't mess with the colors!
Don't mess with the uniforms!
THIS IS MICHIGAN!
my eyes, my beautiful eyes
I liked the Sugar Bowl jerseys and am not against them mixing it up. These uniforms look like baby shit hit them in a windstorm. Gross!
Whoever the hell that is, and no I don't care to look it up.
Is it just me or are uniforms quickly becoming almost another facet of the game, where the pregame coverage focuses on the uniforms before the players wearing them?
Please don't listen to the above nay-sayers; your designs are HOT, HOT, HOT! We simply cannot wait for a cool, autumn Saturday watching our beloved Wolverines charge out of the tunnel wearing these new threads. To say we'll win the fashion war would be an understatement.....these new jerseys rock!
You can count on us sporting these babies at our next show!
The internet proves over and over that just because you can, doesn't mean you should.
I can't totally rip him. He likes to have some fun and get creative.
The part I worry about is him tempting Brandon to get even more uniforms than we have and roll one of these out for The Jug Game this year. To scary to think about. Get it out of my head.
On second thought we should start a pool to pay this guy to hide his picture from Brandon forever.
Overheard in Dave Brandon's office: "If only they had some Adidas branding on them they would be perfect, the younger demographic will eat them up and we will make a fortune."
Kill it with fire!
But I'm not sure it's strong enough to show how I feel about these uniforms.
That maize, on the pants of the uni to the left, the BTN's favorite, looks to be the right shade. Other than that, damn, fugly, like a Nike designed US mens and womens' national team jersey.
Those are Brandon's plans for a mascot uniform!
Worst designs ever.
my eyes. The goggles, they do nothing!!
I just threw up in my mouth a little.
