That's like, your opinion, man.
No one that has the slightest bit of taste or judegemnet could possibly like those awful ND unis. I can understand the minority that like our all yellow unis, but there's nothing that can justify ND's.
It took me a few minutes to figure out who was playing even though I knew ND should be playing Louisville. At least keep the general shade of green they use. Those are...different.
Oh good. Now that those pesky game-things are out of the way for a bit we can get back to discussing things that truly matter to people.
These uni's got beat up pretty bad last night here if memory serves.
They look like the guy on the box of Lucky Charms shit all over the players.
The shamrock shake is the perfect comparison for them.
Except shamrock shakes are delicious.
Beat me to it by mere seconds
Ohio can make any uniform ugly.
Yes, Notre Dame took the first prize for inexplicable craptitude.
But Michigan's Zubaz have made us a laughing-stock, after MGoBlog led with the story that indeed we had declined the adidas overture to outfit us in any of the awful short-sleeve and/or no-sleeve Zubaz ripoffs.
Eleven Warriors is having all kinds of good fun at our expense (as they are no doubt entitled); after so many MGoBloggers crawled out on the limb to declare ourselves better than the rest for having told adidas "no thanks."
So the Ohio State University Buckeyes are having a nice weekend watching basketball and looking just fine thank you very little.
So....you care what they think of us? F that
That's a fact. They are laughing at us, precisely because WE were mocking the idiotic adidas template-design, just a few days ago. We got it started; we staked out the position of ridicule.
If the uniforms were an ugly fucking creation when we were laughing at them and saying how smart it was to avoid them, they didn't become acceptable just because our players put them on to go out and lose a very ugly game.
This stupid fucking idea of a uniform wasn't a Michigan idea. It is a corporate template that we agreed to. There's nothing "Michigan" about it.
I thought they were ugly as hell, from the first sight. And I am not going to change my mind just because our guys wore them. I still want to know how the decision was made. Who decided? What was the financial pressure/opportunity? What was the contractual pressure/requirement?
The yuck of the Irish.
That is all.
ND's uni's were smack-you-in-the-face ugly, but Cincy's were the kind of well thought out, purposeful ugly that stays with you for a while.
As does Mickey D's...
into the picture
Remember when uniforms stood for schools and not for shoe companies? Remember when what you wore wasn't dictated by the template your supplier pushed on all their schools?
Is Michigan the brand, or Adidas? Is Notre Dame the brand? Why can't anyone stand up for themselves anymore?
Times change. Integrity doesn't.
I know that's the stock answer. "Money." It's what everybody says.
"How much?" is my question. What were the consequences for Michigan if the Athletic Department had said, "No; sorry, but we think that looks like crap." How much money may have been riding on that decision?
And I'd ask if it were even possible. It is interesting to watch IU progress through the tournaments during Zubaz season. Whether they could opt out; what went into any decisions on their part; whether IU thought it a matter of "money."
What is the net benefit out of a discrete choice like this one with the adidas Zubaz?
about Notre Dame.
Seems like Addidas has 10 year olds designing the clothes
Adidas has 10 year olds stitching them, too.
Did anyone see their coach smack the cup of water on the court? I heard the commentator say it, but then went to highlights and completely avoided it.
Glow in the dark?
It is like a hallucination I had in south quad in the fall of 1996. not kidding, I had some fever dreams that fall.
No worse than your mom.
Yeah we looked terrible
The camo shorts are UGLY. The players must like them or they wouldn't be wearing them. The ADIDAS brand is pitiful. UM 's shoes are hideous. Brandon is all about $ for the school.
I can't really come up with a description or alalogy that is better than the ones everyone here has come up with, so I will "defend" them. Their only saving grace is that they have people talking about Notre Dame basketball. It's not like they have done all that much to distinguish themselves this year, other than outlasting Louisville in five overtimes.
Another silver lining: the color would be great in the WWE if they could find a gimmick to use it with.
