"Though I received no official response to these sophisticated and elegant tweets to the Illini Athletic Department, I would like to think that Beckman spent the evening prank calling everyone in Illinois named George McLellan and then ordering an absurd amount of hats off an internet haberdashery to hoard in his home's hat annex."

|1 week 2 days ago||Minor league sports are all||
Minor league sports are all about gimmicks to get people into the seats. Those are more about being funny and playful than making an actual uniform. Star Wars night is a common one. Ghostbusters is new to me, so at least it's got that going for it.

If you think that's the worst part, you clearly don't understand just how bad these are.
|1 week 2 days ago||These were created years ago||
These were created years ago and have looked through quite a bit of Mr Design Junkie's stuff in a can't-stop-looking-at-this-train-wreck sort of stupor. They are, hands down, the worst uniform designs I've ever seen. They're not just terrible ideas, but are terribly executed from a technical standpoint. It actually bums me out that this garbage gets any attention at all.

For you, the design is old and out of style. For current students, it's retro. Welcome to feeling old.
|25 weeks 2 days ago||They got screwed. The refs||
They got screwed. The refs took 17 seconds to reset the ball. Part of the reason that it took 17 seconds was because ASU jumped on the ball after the whistle for some reason. That should have been delay of game on the defense, which would have meant that Wisconsin could have just taken their 5 yards and trotted the field goal unit onto the field for a chip shot to win the game. Wisconsin fans should be furious.

|31 weeks 5 days ago||Yup. I remember seeing this||
Yup. I remember seeing this before. It's actually a really nice design for what it was intended to be; a logo and not a mascot. I get that people are trashing it because they don't want a mascot but it's a really solid design for shirts and hats. Nice work by jjscott and...

I don't think I ever wanted a win for an individual player as badly as I wanted Michigan to beat Minnesota Duluth for the sake of Shawn Hunwick. His story and what he accomplished is amazing, but it would have been all-time college hockey lore if they had won. I'm done now. I don't want to think about it.

I really hope not. Michigan could stand to build some continuity in the team right now. Sounds like things look good for Compher to stay though, right?

I camped up near Munising/Pictured Rocks, went on some little hikes, and went swimming in Lake Superior last summer and hope to do it again. It's a gorgeous place and doesn't hurt the wallet.

this has to be incredibly painful for spartan fans to watch. i'm a little embarrassed for the big ten at this point.

2-0 tech. michigan has not looked good from what i've seen. they just got some good pressure late in the period. let's hope they keep that going into the 2nd.

so many patches and logos it's on the verge of looking like a nascar jacket.

true, but on the other hand the outside of yost will look awesome at night with all the light from the game shining out those windows.

i'm geeked to see yost when it's all done. i'll definitely be there October 7th for the blue/white game.
|1 year 29 weeks ago||well, the jersey itself isn't||
well, the jersey itself isn't bad. the pants are fairly bad and the helmet ruins any chance of this uni being decent.
|1 year 32 weeks ago||I dig it. The black stripe on||
I dig it. The black stripe on purple doesn't work too great because of a lack of contrast, but the stripe is distinct and unique. Nice to see that UnderArmour could go for a more stripped down and simple design rather than going all Maryland on all their unis.
|1 year 43 weeks ago||whoa, man. for somebody that||
whoa, man. for somebody that shares likeness in avatars, we are totally not on the same page. the big block M is awesome.
add maize collar and block M to word "MICHIGAN" to alumni game jersey and BAM! new away jersey. i actually like them except for that i don't like block M incorporated into the word "MICHIGAN." it looks better the way it is on the alumni jerseys. i really like the simple three maize stripes though.
they look more like throwbacks than the throwbacks. they remind me of the anniversary jerseys buffalo had been wearing (which were absolutely amazing in every way, in case you didn't know)
|1 year 50 weeks ago||Anybody else notice that||
Anybody else notice that Michael Spath over at rivals picked Michigan to go to the national championship AND LOSE TO MINNESOTA-DULUTH!? that will be a bitter grudge match if that matchup actually happens and i would hate Minnesota Duluth forever if Michael Spath were amazingly right in his bracket prediction.
on the other hand, i am salivating at the idea of michigan winning a rematch against duluth and writing the final chapter on what would be the final saga of the hunwick story.

i hate the fact that people pay attention to this kind of poorly designed, tasteless garbage. apparently any ol putz with a copy of photoshop can make noise on the internet. this just stylistically and technically sucks. move along.
