I'm all for not wearing a jersey to the game because wearing yellow is the way to go.
This is maaaaybe premature there, ESPN. Maryland #1 FWIW.

I don't know about you but I prefer to wear maize instead of yellow!
I stand corrected. I was posting while on a conference call at work and thus not thinking clearly... I will neg myself for that one.
FWIW, the Alma Mater is technically "The Yellow and Blue."
Maize and yellow are the same thing.
for wearing maize shirts. The student section looks awesome for home games and it would be great if the whole stadium looked like that (save the opposing fans).
As far as jerseys, I choose not to wear one, but think it's ridiculous to chide someone for being too old to wear one. This kind of intolerance begets further intolerance. First it's jerseys, then it's maize shirts, followed eventually by "Down in front!!"
As long as you're cheering your ass off and making plenty of noise (but not being a negative douche), wear whatever you want.
I believe this adequately describes that post. And that person's MGoFandom.
In many schools of the south (e.g. Georgia) They were slacks and polos/dress shirts. True story.
I'm with you, though 100%.
My question to you good sir is... are Jean shorts acceptable?
if you have a nice butt.
I think I do... I legimately own like 2 pairs of Jorts and my girlfriend claims she threw them away. She hates jorts and says... Gators wear jean shorts. Which reminds me of this video:
...only if they are acid washed.
Only if the game happens to be played in Canada
Only if they are cut-offs and you are a Buckeye fan.
If they have wings
In many schools of the south (e.g. Georgia) They were slacks and polos/dress shirts.
Please. Polos are so underdressed. Ties.
Oh so true. Don't forget blazers when it gets a little cooler out.
I've always favored a tuxedo on brisk Fall afternoons.
That's not a very well thought-out or written article. I still don't like students wearing the blue jerseys in the student section, though.
wearing non-maize shirts in the student section is annoying. how hard is it, people?
True, but If it's not a maize-out I don't see what's wrong with the rest of us wearing Jerseys, Grown men or not, its a FOOTBALL game, If you have a football jersey feel free to wear it.
Bob is on vacation- this "jackhole" is a guest blogger who is making this argument.
Also, I am of the Scott Van Pelt opinion that grown men shouldn't wear jerseys of their favorite 18-22 year olds. There's plenty of leeway if that jersey is from when you were that age, but generally speaking I'm not sure 45 year olds need to be wearing Devin Gardner jerseys
The thing about college football is that those jerseys typically don't (or shouldn't) have last names on it. So that Devin Gardner jersey you're referring to could be Chad Henne, Rick Leach or anyone else in history.
I agree- I guess I was referring to the people who actually take the time to stitch on the names. Generic #7 jerseys are just fine
Even if you bought it because of a particular player, it's not "player wear". It's school wear. It's all to support UofM.
Basically, you can't be a fan and wear the jersey to support players if they are younger than you? This is some funny shit here. I mean grown men probably shouldn't be watching muppets either but I'm down with it.
It's FOOTBALL! Wear your jersey and be proud!
And believe me, I am no fan of cats. And yes, Brian is aware of this.
my brown shoes didn't match my black belt.
Don't tell me MGoBlog isn't the fashion police.
He told you about your shoes and your belt? That was a roundabout way of letting you know he was checking you out.
You could've scored.
My 85 year old grandfather wore his jersey on Michigan Saturdays. You wanna tell him it was wrong? It was AWESOME is what it was.
I have a buckeye friend who also thinks grown men should never wear a jersey. I don't understand this. I wear my jersey when watching UM games, even if it's at a bar. Now I wouldn't be caught dead going out at night to a bar in a M jersey b/c I think that's lame.
But, as long as it's being worn while watching a UM sporting event, what's so bad about wearing a jersey?
in my jersey.
It looks like this is user submitted content that the usual guy is posting while on vacation.
Still, it's pretty ridiculous.
- Old School Michigan gear can be awesomely cool. What's with the hate?
- Grown men wearing jerseys to a game is much different than being that guy who wears them to Sunday Dinner or a funeral.
- I wear as much logo gear as possible. I'm pretty sure that this makes me increasingly awesome as each piece is added.
- What's with being in the pocket of Nike and Adidas? I'll wear my MgoShirts and Steve and Barry's hoodie with pride.
is nothing more than a compilation of other's hard work. The idiot, Bob he calls himself, takes news of the day and posts it. There is very little original content and even less analysis. I've been on that asswipe for the better half of a year. Today's post was ignorant as well. If you want to wear a jersey, wear a jersey. Are we so "over-analytical" that if someone wears a black shirt to a UM game, they are not a true fan?
Here's some advice for the MGOBLOG community, stay away from that shitty blog. That guy's an idiot.
Yes, much of what appears on there is just a rehash of stuff found here and elsewhere, but I do find that he does good research to find info on preferred walk-ons
You do know he reads this here blog and that the last few posts on his website have been from viewers who emailed content for him to post while he is on vacation. I just think maybe you should hold off on the name calling. He is a fellow wolverine fan afterall. It's not like he writes anything condescending and bad mouths the program.
I'm pro choice. If you want to wear your UM jersey... go ahead. But I chose not to.
Either way, I love seeing the ladies in jerseys.
I don't care what anyone else wears. As long as it isn't green and white or scarlet and grey. Go to the game and cheer, for cryin out loud.
As for myself, just reaching the half-century mark, I don't see myself wearing a jersey any time soon. I like the adidas maize t-shirt, and my navy champion sweatshirt. Had a great v-neck off-white rosebowl sweater I loved until it got stained with mustard. Want to find a nice navy pull over thing like a windbreaker, with a zipper at the neck.
As far as fashion police go, the one thing I can't stand are plaid maize and blue pants, especially with really big checks. I'm not wealthy, but these seem to be the choice of some in the golf and money set. This is something I'll never understand.
Oh, and I never liked those acrylic blue tams with a gold pom, iirc. Didn't like em when I was a student, don't like em now.
6'7" & not much fits me. Thank god for Jerseys. If I saw a 100 year old man in one, good for him This isn't like a old woman in a string bikini. Bury me in mine too.
As long as you're not sporting a Lions jersey to grandma's funeral, I think it's alright.
He was also advocating that we give Richardo Miller, Roy Rountree or J'Ron Stokes the #1 jersey next season regardless of whether they've earned it or not... which none of them has, especially not Miller... he hasn't even played a down and this guy wants to give him the #1 jersey
So they get a 1/3 each? That would be amusing.
haha, that would be pretty amusing, but no I think its a pick one
... but I can't help but think I'm watching an Iowa crowd for some reason. I know maize is a warm color that really jumps out at you, but somehow I'd like to see a game or two where everyone is wearing the Michigan blue. After all, we are the one and only "GO BLUE" university.
What about cheap plastic safety helmets with glued-on paper "M"s?
I don't get the logic behind the whole "This guy's an idiot, so let's all visit his site and give him the hits he craves" thing. I've never visited that blog, and it sounds like I have little reason to.
when somebody's actions have been treacherous enough that they should be avoided at all costs. However, having a lousy blog post on what not to wear isn't such a post. If you say, "I think that's stupid so I'm not even going to read it" about everything, pretty soon you'll read nothing, and you'll be the one people are calling dumb.
I'm going home...
That's Cartman's line
OK no jerseys, but what if a grown man wanted to make a Michigan Voltron costume where instead of 5 robot lions he'd have 5 of those foam wolverine heads you can get at M Den?
...as long as they stick to football.
I bought my #2 jersey well over a decade ago; I have cared for it meticulously and it still looks good. I have faithfully worn it every Saturday and bowl game since I bought it. So with that being said, guess what I'm wearing to the spring game?
It's someone named "Gail from Saline." Apparently, when given the keys to the kingdom for a day, she had nothing better to do than tell people how to dress. I'm sure she will be frustrated to realize that it might work on her kids, hubby, or whatever, but won't have any effect on those capable of making their own decisions.
There is one pretty funny comment at the end.
