Everyone knows about the wingless helmets, today's CTK video shows MAIZE jerseys, previous videos shows QBs in black jerseys. (In the past, there was red and green to signify injury and no-contact.)
Personally, I think the presence of these other changes signifies that the great "wingless helmet" issue is WAY overblown.
But, for you fans with nothing to do and who need SOMETHING to discuss the next 19 days until the season starts, chew on these possibilities:
1. Maybe this is John Falk's way of pushing his recent book. This brings attention to the equipment manager at UM and, therefore, attention to him and his book. He is just looking for publicity.
2. Maybe this is RR's way of evaluating players. He makes under-performing players look ridiculous in wingless helmets and off-color jerseys. But, if a player is playing well, then he is sharply dressed. GERG's comments about players "looking beautiful" is just a way to let us know who is well dressed.
3. Michigan is experimenting with new uniform options. The "down in front" crowd has been onto this for a while now. This is just RR's latest attempt to destroy our great heritage.
4. RR is sitting down editing these clips just to mess with us. He saw the reaction to wingless helmets, so he said "pull out those eyesore jerseys, that'll get 'em going." Look out for green pants next.
