days until Michigan starts off 2011 with a W.
12:00, I commend you comrade.
until the rest of this board comes around for coach Hoke. I'm not trying to convince any of you mgopeeps anymore. Methinks time will do the trick! Go Blue! See you in the Big House!
Brandon's message to the masses turns out to be correct one
Reminds me of The Landlord, from Funny or Die! Love it!
days until Coach Hoke and our best recruiter patch up the class, and hopefully pull some surprises on NSD.
That's an awesome photo, do you know which game it's from?
If I would have to take a guess I think it's the Notre Dame game.
Do you mean the cover of SI? I've never heard of the NCAA having their own magazine.
I think he is referring to the NCAA Football video game.
Athletes that appear on the cover must be graduates/moving on to the NFL. Otherwise it would be breaking NCAA rule. I'm sure next year will be Newton
Cam effing Newton on the cover of the next NCAA game. That's just peachy. $$$ for everybody without a single twinge of conscience!
Two heisman winners in the same thread!
As the pattern goes 212 will be Des and Woodson!
I cannot wait. It seems too far away. Is anyone good at cryogenic freezing? Just freeze me now and unfreeze me when the season starts. Ball's in your court.
Can we please return to Nike uniforms?
Are people really so dumb to think that this is a change that can easily be made? We signed a long term contract with Adidas. If there is not a huge penalty for breaking the contract. Some lawyer should be disbarred and literally deported to Boliva. Begging to switch back to Nike isn't going to get them to change unless you agree to make up the additional millions.
Those that play or played the game know that you should provide the best for your team. Nike is the best!!!
you may have taken that comment a bit too seriously... i do think, however, that if an outfitter change is ever to be made:
Do the chicken hut make cleats.......
As long as it's Michigan gear I don't care who makes it (well, not kids in third world countries).
Champions wear the best and it is not adidas.
Whoever we get, it would be nice not to have 6-10 year olds making them.
I think you read to much in to something. Next we will yield to under armour. When does the BS stop. Nobody likes those WV looking uniforms we play in.
Are you six years old?
No, I have on a shirt....
On fraternity row (shirtless)
Woah, that's pretty personal right there. This fight is getting serious.
No, not personal we want the same thing Wins baby wins. It was good to dialogue with you.
I was joking since you pointed out the shirtless thing. I want the same in terms of winning. Don't really care about the uniforms.
Did the Hoke hire bother you?
While I don't care about the uniforms and also want wins baby wins! Those nike jerseys are better IMHO.
How is that BS? Was it the 6-10 year olds not enjoying a childhood in order to make jersey's for other people? Wisconsin is dropping Nike for a similar reason. Shouldn't we be an agent for a positive world?
So continue the same stuff and get the same results. Go ahead puma ambassadors.
Please don't tell me that you honestly think the downfall of our football team is actually related to switching to Adidas. You can't be that dumb.
I constantly defend the maize and blue in the face of diehard Alabama and Auburn fans. So to see you love the program as much as I or better does my heart a lot of good.
I'm an angry Michigan fan that hate the SEC. Finebaum beats us up everyday on his show. Im literally sick of it.
Don't listen to sports radio. Period. Nothing but garbage designed to rile up close-minded fans.
Southerners are crazy about their football. Everywhere I go it's Alabama or Auburn and I am the only UM fan in the room. It's crazy. We must begin to win because it's not the same when we don't.
You should try living in Tuscaloosa. It is bad enough that I cant wear my Michigan gear without someone saying under their breath, "Damn Yankee" but my wife is actually one of those insufferable Auburn fans.
Did you read the details of the Adidas contract?
Did you know it is the best college athletics sponsorships in the country, with a clause in there saying that no other Adidas contracts can be better?
Did you know that we make $7.5 million per year which is $3.5 million more than Nike, with a $6.5 million signing bonus that no other program had ever received (Nike programs included) at the time? $66.5 million over 8 years?
Did you know John Falk spoke with his colleagues at every Adidas school and received no negative responses?
Did you know Adidas put two full time representatives in Ann Arbor to deal with mens and womens sports and that any other school only gets one?
I'm betting the answers are no, but thanks for playing.
I do know that you are an spokesperson.....
I just care to do my research before shooting from the hip.
I don't care for the Adidas jerseys as much as the next guy, but I can live with them if it comes with this ridiculously awesome contract.
We get it, you aren't a fan of the Adidas jerseys. If you want to debate another board member, you need to present evidence that supports your position instead of just attacking their credibility for reasons that may or may not be true.
I got u.
But I also know that adidas is shit.
But I also know that you're shit.
Those Nike jerseys are sick!!
I like the combat uniforms.....
must be a robot
That's a nice hazard orange color.....I can see "Severe Tire Damage" on the back of one of these.....
Phil Knight started with Oregon on his quest to absolutely ruin college football with those ridiculously ugly unis. When they got under the lights, TCU's lizard scale pants looked like they were sequined... VT had circuit boards in their numbers. Florida had a gator-print helmet... gator print... like a knock-off purse. I'd love to have Michigan's old Nike jerseys, but I'll take our current look over the Pro Combat any day.
