These are like Pitt's jerseys now. The cleats are terrible.
Michigan should go to Under Armour, they said.
Their uniforms are better than adidas, they said.
I want these when we play football games in Ann Arbor
And I want these when we play football games outside of Ann Arbor
Good catch! ha!
...and I always wondered why the hell we couldn't get pants that were one shade of maize.
those two-toned pants Michigan wore during the Rick Leach/Harlan Huckleby/Rob Lytle days.
Then again, I was in my early 20's back then, about the same age that the uniformz-loving crowds are now.
Who said that? I hear lots of people (myself included) pining for Nike again, not UA. I don't want Nike because of UNIFORMZ (which are turrible), but because of overall quality, and not having jerseys shred from being looked at all squinty eyed.
There have been people on here wanting Under Armour.
I'm on here a lot, and I don't remember any of that.
I'll bite. I prefer Under Armour. I would love a nice Under Armour tee, and a quarter zip for games. Their clothing, to me, is the highest quality.
On the field Maryland and MERICA Northwestern take the cake for crazy designs.But they have turned out some things of beauty with a legacy like Auburn, Notre Dame,Temple. Toledo's new uniform is better too.
Honestly, the tearing doesnt bug me as much as it bugs some of us, I would rather wear a consistent sized shirt and not be between sizes constantly.
I like Nike stuff, too, but I've had a much better experience with Under Armour apparel in general. They make the good stuff for me.
From my limited perspective, people had been clamoring for Not-Adidas.
When did North Dakota sign an apparel deal with UA?
They look like Navy's unis
Hate that uniform. What were they smoking?
I almost never go into threads about uniformz, but man, what are people thinking? I get that times change, and we move forward, but this just seems . . . ridiculous. The uniform companies, all of them (UA, Adidas, Nike, et al) seem to have designers who have to justify their existence by coming up with something more and more outlandish. A pox on all of them.
"Get off my lawn."
I don't know what they're smoking, but I'm going to light up a bowl and go stare at that undershirt.
This is obviously ND's idea, they did the same "shamrock series" promotion when they were with Adidas. Just like how all of our alternate uniforms were our idea.
Everything in this world is going to hell
I like the helmets quite a bit. But how does ND approve the rest of that uni?
You like the helmets? ND has iconic helmets. So stupid.
The last straw for me is if they ever mess with our helmets.
I don't mind the uniform but the shoes look like construction boots.
I like the trees in the background.
ghosts passing through the trees? Is that some kind of ND tradition?
What do the recruits think?
The more uniforms I see, the more I appreciate this:
How sweet would it be to wear those at night. (Either Nike or adidas, doesn't matter)
Yeah that's Nike 2006. Nike now would be terrible and they have the worst helmets of any company. I'm sure you'd be crying when we sported chrome winged, three D helmets with our elite halo suits.
lolwut? My point was I don't care about the company - I could just as easily posted a normal adidas home jersey.
But...that's peak highlighter yellow there.
If you're referring to my Mike Hart post, looks great to me.
I love them, and by love them I mean I love that we don't wear anything that bad.
Just glad we stick with adidas and don't have to worry about stuff like this.
Uh... We don't?
I've chased three kids off my lawn this week alone, but I gotta say that other than the goofy number, those look pretty sweet.
I have wondered for a long time what we would look like in blue jerseys and blue pants. I actually think this look is perfect for a night game. The maize highlights - wings, M's, numbers - will really "pop" against the blue background under the lights.
I am excited to see this look at night. The contrast provided against Penn State's all-whites will make for a cool event.
"What we'd look like in blue jerseys and blue pants"
Smurfs have white pants and smurf-blue is not close to the same blue. Maybe I'm in a bad mood, but it pisses me off that you don't know more about smurfs.
I can't wait to see the complaining when Michigan wears Blue on Maize or an all-Maize. It's happening eventually.
An alternate a year is fine.
I hate them. They look awful. Good for ND.
a quick glance at the ESPN front page, the ESPN NCAAF page, and the board...people are talking about ND uniforms, not a cheating scandal.
If you look closely, you can see the hidden pocket for test answers. That's what you call a decided schematic advantage.
That's an ugly fucking uniform.
The waist up actually isn't horrible. I don't mind the shoulders at all and their logo is good enough to throw it on the helmet, though people are gonna get upset because of tradition and that's understandable. However, the pants and the shoes and just.... attrocious. Just horrific. I don't even understand... UA channelling its inner Addidas.
Man, this makes me sick. I don't mind admitting I'm liberal for the most part, but the temptation of a few bucks has crapped all over tradition when it comes to uniforms. I'm glad the players like it, because someone's got to. I expect this from the traditionless like Sparty, but does anyone remember the glory of playing Ohio when they actually wore their traditionals? And their alternates are far from the worst. Yeesh.
