at $10 mil/year...we're the flagship of Nike (outside of Oregon). Which is a blessing and a curse.
Can Nike really have it's flagship University not go "full Nike?"
|7 min 17 sec ago||+ Notre Dame (unfortunately)||
And now probably UNC because of Jordan and their colors.
Maize, Burnt Orange, Carolina Blue are all real even outside of athletics. People know what those terms mean even when discussing items completely unrelated to sports.

Why? When did this happen? This sucks.
#1 kicker and from our own backyard...

Good thing we got Moe Wagner BEFORE the Nike annoucement. Phew.

Even if it would've been something like this past year with the Harbaugh hype...I think it goes to Ford Field.
However, in 2008 we were awful...I assume that was RR's first year so it's not like he knew the area, had contacts or gave a fuck...he just wanted another practice.
Brandon Graham...and everyone else.

But if it hurts OSU even 1% it's worth it for us.
Who gives a shit if Bama is the fucking Patriots at this point...we need to focus on dominating MSU and then getting over the "even" mark with OSU.
Fuck how good Bama is...they aren't on our schedule anymore* and if we ever do play them, that's a GOOD thing.
*Thanks, no thanks Dave "motherFUCK you" Brandon.
|13 hours 43 min ago||Sucks for Urbz||
But smart on Bama's part...they're always looking to get better. I hope Harbaugh does the same, that's how you get better.
Hoke would've just took the loss and said we needed to be more physical.

Admittedly it kind of makes me happy that people on this board think I'm anywhere from 20 to 60, white, black, or anything...
...that said, I purposely made the Brian comment so people wouldn't think that was me (no offense Brian)
I just Google's pee yellow Michigan jersey and that was in the search, I thought it was funny, so I added it to the other pictures.

You can't be from Ohio.
|15 hours 3 min ago||Yes||
But that was Nike making money off a phenomenon at Michigan without paying the players...it wasn't a contract with Michigan.
They just noticed the Michigan players wore black socks and so they started making their own black socks with a white swoosh so people could be like the Fab 5.
Then again, you can't pay someone for starting a trend or a style. Otherwise I'd come out the house wearing some outlandish shit hoping something would catch on and I'd get a check.

...but I don't want the highlighter either.
I think there is a middle ground.
That to me is perfect, it's not damn near orange, and it's not what you see above.
P.S. "shoulder pads" not "pades"
|15 hours 9 min ago||Nike changed it...not Adidas||
Common mistake, but Nike started the highlighter before Adidas ever got the contract.
|15 hours 11 min ago||Not sure, Champion?||
But Nike only provided shoes for Michigan...not jerseys. Football and MBB. We didn't get Nike apparel until March 1994 and basketball season was almost over, so I'm guessing they didn't get them until the next season, where football got Nike that fall of '94.
|15 hours 14 min ago||To answer the question...||
Don't touch the home uniforms - put the small Block M back above the nameplate and get rid of "MICHIGAN" spelled out
Away uniforms should look like what was rumored in March...except outline the navy in maize so we don't have a Penn St. top and put navy numbers on the shoulder pades (just like the home) and outline those in maize. Outline the names on the back in maize as well. AND NO HIGHLIGHTER YELLOW!
For Men's Basketball:
Go with the Cazzie Russell's, with longer shorts, and put a jumpman logo on them...
|15 hours 21 min ago||FYI for those that say Fab 5 Jerseys||
The Fab 5 didn't wear Nike
...also note the block M on the maize shorts was often at a different height on the side of the shorts. Weird.
|15 hours 24 min ago||lol||
Those aren't Nike. I believe they're Champion, could be wrong, but they aren't Nike for sure.
|15 hours 26 min ago||WD||
Where are the Twitter updates now that this is official?
I'd like a complete rundown, please. I came here to see reaction, all I got was the OP. #Disappointed.
|15 hours 28 min ago||I know...||
I was responding to the fact that "Uniforms Matter"...it had nothing to do with NIKE.
|15 hours 29 min ago||lol||
You mean the ones where the block M was at different spots on the shorts? Some high, some middle, some at the bottom trim?
|15 hours 30 min ago||I didn't.||
|19 hours 23 min ago||Look at how many points I have...||
...there ARE no other sites besides MGoBlog.
|19 hours 24 min ago||I suppose that's one example...||
But I think it would be a lot more realistic (unfortunately) for a kid to be 50/50 between 2 schools and the apparel company give that extra .01%
Now in men's basketball...all bets are off. Some kids won't even LOOK at you if you're not the same apparel company as their high school or AAU team. We all know the reasons why, but that's basketball. However, it (clearly) makes a difference in the other sports as well.
The reaction to the announcement will be insane, just sit back and watch. I'm sure WD will keep us in the loop on all of the Women's Rowining tweets for Nike in addition to the other sports.
|19 hours 28 min ago||Actually...||
See Oregon, see Boise St., see Pro Combat, see Maryland, etc.
Look at the uniforms for all of the High School camps and All-American Games (The Opening, ESPN, Army AA game)
It matters to these kids, it's NOT the reason you go with Nike...but it's a nice perk if all things are close to equal.
|1 day 15 hours ago||I watched a movie...||
...just ended and still an hour. So I did what any normal person trying to kill an hour would do...got on MGoBlog.
|2 days 23 hours ago||Rich Rod was horrible at Michigan||
But he's not a horrible coach.
I said we had 5 good coaches...I never said they were good at Michigan, Nussmeier is a quality football coach. As are the other guys I mentioned. As is Rich Rod...it doesn't mean any succeeded as Brady's Hoke's assistant (or in the case of Rich Rod, with a ton of things stacked against him).
Hopefully that makes sense now.

I don't even GO inside on the 4th, I'm on here from my patio and if I gotta piss, God made bushes.
