...that smile, it makes my objection to the shoulder stripes seem insigificant.
Sugar Bowl Jersey Sneak Peek
I have admired their stuff in the past, even as others preferred Nike. But my objection here is not the stripes but the nasty logo (smaller please) and retro numerals. From a design standpoint, clean tends to be good, busy bad, especially when you're viewing something at a distance.
But it's true--Denard lights that thing up, in a way that makes you forget the jersey.
Don't love it... but it isn't Oregonesque either. C'est la vie.
way. way. way. way. way worse.
What the hell is that?
I must know who put that together, so I never pull for that team ever and laugh at anyone associated with them.
no, REALLY, WTF is that? You posted it - you hold responsibility for my eyes melting. I at least deserve some explaination. I'll have my son read it to me. My eyes no longer work.
I agree. I also think they are less tacky that the UTL jerseys that had even more stripes on the sleeves.
Denard is Awesome!
Extra Des Howardish here
its the thin lip stache and glowing smile
This should be the normal jersey. I like it.
completely agree. Look classy. I'd add one maize stripe between the 2 blue stripes and it'd look amazing. but overall sweet jersey very clean looking
Those jerseys look slimming.
Stripes for piping... good tradeoff, imo. I like the clean look, but honestly think they might be a bit too bland without something on the shoulders. A couple of stripes is fine instead of numbers or a block M, imo.
Lol @ score 5: underrated
everything looks perfect in front of that smile
Way better than whatever we had for the game in the trash tornado.
Got it from Moe's. This is what the replicas will look like: http://www.moesportshops.com/products/view/3365/1
FYI I went to M Den tonight and they will not be exactly the same as the ones they have posted. As you see in the picture of the jersey Denard is holding, there are no holes in the number. This is the same as the one on the site for both M Den and Moe's. However, the actual jerseys they will be shipping will NOT be solid numbers. They will be the cheaper replica ones that have those small holes through the jersey as well as the numbers. It's not as big of a deal on the blue ones but the white ones make it look really cheap in my opinion. Just a heads up to those looking to buy them. I would have been very disappointed had I not checked it out first.
I reeeeally like these. The normal ones not so much.
They screwed around with our regular away ones so much that these are actually better.
Are there leg holes on that thing? Seriously...
It looks like a onesie for grown ups. However, I do love it and will be adding it to the collection.
Pretty, pretty good. They're going to look slick for the bowl game.
No to the number font. The numbers will look like they were drawn on with a pencil from a distance. Its sad that we all have to try to find something we like or say, "it could be worse".Who designs them?
the neg and trolling label.
It is just my opinion,I think there are better options.
I'd be totally content to have these as our normal away jerseys. But I still hate that I have to fear what Dave Brandon is going to pull out of his butt before every big game
with the white pants, perhaps with some maize and blue trim.
Wouldn't ind these as the everyday whites.
Not gonna lie, those are sharp jerseys. They should use these all next season.
but really...i'd rather them wear these than the away jerseys with piping
Put a maize stripe on those things right between the two blue ones and you'd have an absolutely perfect jersey.
I'm getting one
I love these jerseys. Very well done!! I'm excited to see these in NOLA
URL jerseys? or UTL jerseys
Will they have an NOB? I hope so.
Does anyone know why some QBs in the NFL (ex. Brady and Manning) wear the old style loose sleeves while most college level QBs and newly drafted QBs wear the elastic sleeves?
Has anyone else noticed that or am I just insane?
both, very likely.
If they have been wearing loose sleeves their entire career, there is little incentive to switch to something that could interfere with their throwing motion (even the smallest amount).
Newer players have been using the elastic their entire career, and are just fine with them.
You would never want to switch anything up, even a minor change can get a qb into overthinking their throwing motion and make a mistake.
I like 'em with the exception that it looks way too busy with the "M," Adidas logo and patch right in a row.
I like them - much better than the ones with that ugly yellow stripe. The only thing is that I'd switch around the M (and make it smaller) and the Adidas logo.
I'm with you. The jerseys themselves don't look so bad - I just hope they last more than just the bowl game. Isn't that how the maize piping started, come to think of it? It was first for "just the Alamo Bowl" and then became the regular white jersey and then exploded at the start of...'08 or '09 was it?
If these jerseys had a three year run they'd be a significant improvement over what came before them.
I like the jerseys, but I am loving Koger's twitter handle.
I still prefer the classic late 90s, early 2000s away jerseys with the block M on the shoulders. Classic. Wish we still had Nike, although I would not like to see the pro combats on Michigan players
They would probably give us Bronze wings on the helmet and a more royal blue, or maybe even darker.
LOL at Sparty for having bronze as one of their new colors. MSU: Green/White/Bronze
Just love this group of players... What a great bunch of guys...
The details make the difference.
I agree with you. It should be common sense,on both points.
Probably has to do with the helmet numbers being a decal and the wings are painted. I disagree with you about the helmet number font though, I don't think it would look good on the jerseys. Too much like an NFL font. I'd like to see the bowl jerseys with the regular block number font.
Denard likes it. End of discussion.
I love them more I see then. Plus having denard's smile doesn't hurt either.
No stripes, no piping, why is this so difficult? The road jersey needs to be changed to Hanes undershirts with personalized marker on them. This isn't necessarily a DB thing because our road jerseys have changed a lot over the years. I just wish they would stay with the basics.
White jerseys with blue numbers and nothing more, keep it simple.
But Denard seems pleased, so I think we're OK.
I like simple and clean so here is my suggestion. Solid white jersey, with maize numbers and a blue block M on the right side of the chest. Maybe blue lettering for names on the back or no names at all.
No stripes, no piping, no outlined numbers, nothing on the shoulders or sleeves.
I figure our home jerseys are simple and clean so why not our road jerseys?
Can anyone else picture it?
May be a bit tough to see, no?
I do recommend blue lettering for the names on the back to make it easier to read.
That sounds good to me as someone who likes basic or classic jerseys. Except I don't really mind the outlined numbers, I think that's ok. Good logic on the comparison between home and away jerseys.
May God have mercy on the soul of the guilty man that negged a picture of Denard smiling.
Also, if u use to finger to block out the majority of denard's dreadlocks u got the spitting image of desmond

you can double post anytime you like
I wouldnt be opposed to those becoming our full time roadies
Just no white pants.
Yes white pants please.
Teams 115 to 132
Agreed. I like the look, could even get used to seeing those on the road full-time. Like others have said though, no white pants.
Something unrelated... anyone have a good suggestion for a flag for the house??? I bought the one from the link below, but it is terrible. It came to the house, and the "M" is not Michigan maize. It's more gold, like Missouri's color on the Navy--brutal in person.
We're in Houston, so I can't really see any in person. I was hoping for some MGo help. I'm trying to get one for our new house to fly on gameday!
PICK AN AWAY JERSEY!!!!
Uh, didn't our seniors just do that?
I think most of the ANGAR (myself included) doesn't come from this jersey, but more from the lack of a consistent away uniform this year. And at no point was that worse than @Sparty with the bumblebees.
This uniform is classy, but I hope it gets promoted from "alternate" to "away" and is so successful that it obliterates all other white jerseys we've seen like a wolverine obliterates its prey.
letting the seniors pick the jersey (road game or not) is a slippery slope. We are Oregon.
design pov, let alone Herbert Hoover's 1950s.
I guess it's not as terrible as the mden's artist rendering. It benefits immensely from Denard smiling though.
But I'd like to see Winged Epaulets with the stripes running laterally to the collar.
I'll decide if our jerseys were ugly after I find out who won the Sugar Bowl.
You think if we email DB or Mark Riordan(marketing ad) that we could get these changed to the normal away uniforms?
I'm admittedly liking them more... the front is still too busy, but then again the bowl jerseys almost always seem to be too busy somewhere
Looks like Techfit which means the entire O and D lines will switch back to the 2010 jerseys with the piping on them at halftime.
Also, why 2 stripes? That's so arbitrary. Put the blue stripes all the way up the shoulders (like the UTL stripes were.... but not with maize in between them like the jerseys for the MSU game) and make the font of the numbers the same style it usually is, and those are pretty sweet jerseys.
The first thing I thought when I saw the UTL jerseys was "why on the classic homes?" They're good looking and could be iconic but our home jerseys are already great - and the home unifrom really hasn't changed since 1938. The roadies, on the other hand, have changed always, and had that terrible yellow piping the last few years. If they stuck with an-UTL style look, I think I'd be okay with it, if it was as you describe it.
Instead they went bumblebee against Sparty and then went "alternates" against Tech. If they pick a look stick with it. And the look you describe would be unique and I think still classy.
I think they're pretty sharp... I'd probably get one if there was a women's slimmer cut version in stores. Overall, the players seem amped about it, so I'm amped for them!
Junior Hemingway is gonna look like a NASCAR driver.
Get rid of the block M and outline the stripes in Maize and I would buy one
These should not be mentioned alongside those monstrocities (sp?) we wore in EL...To Mr. Brandon - Leave the home jersey alone and have fun with the away jersey, just don't get too carried away (see EL)
That picture just made my weekend.
It def needs moar maize...being to look like Penn State....and right now we don't wanna look like them...MOAR MAIZE!
Am I the only person who hates the font for the numbers? They are too round. They should use the font for the numbers on the home uniforms.
Which would be the away uniforms of Ohio U at the Famous Idaho Potato Bowl.
