|7 hours 56 min ago||I knew they had them||
Didn't know/care what they meant...just thought it was decoration I guess.
However, I agree...very stupid to get rid of it after you win a national championship.
|7 hours 59 min ago||I didn't say it was all about selling replicas||
I said that is a factor...one of many.
And it does make a dent in the revune of a football program - the football program doesn't get the budget of the entire athletics department (obviously).
Go look up how many football programs actually MAKE money on their own, then come back to me. If you can basically have free uniforms because you're selling them for what you paid for them...yes, that helps your budget. Many programs lose money, but help the profile of the university, increase enrollment, create sponsor opportunities, create donor opporunities for the athletics department, etc. - and that's how it's worth it and balances out. But if you just look at a programs budget, dollar for dollar, not paying for uniforms because you're making your money right back may be beneficial.
You're jaded because this is a Michigan fan site...and no, Michigan football does not need any revenue from any alternate jersey. But again, I mentioned that as one factor of a few and there were many others that I didn't mention...your response is like I said it was the sole reason (in additional to being factually incorrect).
But when you're looking up how many football programs make money, take a look at the OP where it says 80 teams in the country have alternates...not just Michigan and some of the big progams with big budgets.

I hope no kid has ever committed because of uniforms, what are you talking about?
There's a middle ground between "no impact" and "committment" - and I personally would say UNIFORMZ for most recruits lands in that middle ground. It's just buzz, hype, style, etc. - but it's not going to lead to a committment (as far as I know).
But did anyone say it would? I wouldn't even want a kid who committed because of uniforms, probably not the brightest star in the sky if you know what I mean.
|10 hours 15 min ago||Agreed.||
But we're getting old.
Plus, it's about money and they sell replicas like hotcakes...then they can turn around and auction their game worn jerseys or helmets to donors and make back all the money they spent on the UNIFORMZ plus some.
Add in the recruiting and buzz factor and it's just too juicy to pass up for most athletic departments.
Uniforms are expensive just on their own...so if you can just get back to net even, it's something to think about - not to mention everything else I mentioned above.
Blame the Ducks.

After actually reading some of the article...it's actually pretty interesting to see them all. Way better than searching or even having a usual thread because they do a good job of showing the before and after.
Teams change so damn much, you have no idea what they're changing from. It's a long article, but it's definitely +1 informative if you're like me and you don't search for all of this stuff.
|10 hours 45 min ago||Please make a new thread||
When it's uploaded...whoever that is...
|10 hours 47 min ago||I know who it is too||
...but I'm not telling!
|17 hours 46 min ago||He and Watt||
Are almost identical in size. I'm going to double down on that prediction in terms of usage (not talent or production).
SDE who plays some TE.
|17 hours 48 min ago||I bet||
They move him to SDE and let him play the Alan Branch role and use him on offense in a JJ Watt TE role.
|18 hours 59 min ago||Next level||
23-7 for this Michigan team in the regular season.
#3 seed puts us in the quarterfinals.
Win 2 games and that's 25-7 going into the championship game.
Win the championship game versus Maryland and that puts us as a low 3/high 4-seed. Lose and we're a 5-seed.
Likely a very tough draw (4's and 5's draw each other and then the #1 seed in the Sweet 16 - "The Shot").
Looking at the schedule...that's where I'm going to put my "over/under" at for this team and my expectations. Which is actually higher than the #6/#7 seed range I said preseason without seeing the schedule.
I know "In Beilein We Trust" but we lost to NJIT and EMU last year with LeVert and Walton. I don't expect us to be world beaters and I don't think today we're a top 25 team. In March? I see a very strong top 25 team that no one would want to play.
|19 hours 16 min ago||I haven't heard anything outside of this Hello post||
He did camp at WVU and some said that was signs of him potentially flipping his committment to WVU in somewhat of a mutual decision.
|20 hours 17 min ago||We also need a DE||
Kemp or Murphy fit the bill.
|20 hours 29 min ago||Sounds like a Junior Hemingway clone||
And THAT is something I will sign up for.
Sucks to hear about Dele Harding, not surprising, but hadn't heard anything even speculated publically.
Corley/Crawford, Hill, Gary, Kareem, Jones put us at 27 without Harding/28 with.
Let's lock it down.
|20 hours 47 min ago||This has been this way for quite some time||
At some point we're going to have to just get used to it.
|20 hours 50 min ago||Oh come on||
Harbaugh had the same thing at Stanford...this isn't something exclusive to Michigan.
There are plenty of coaches with their positions sponsored by a private donation in some way, shape or form and it's reflected in the title.
|20 hours 55 min ago||I'll bite.||
13-5 in the B1G
I believe this will be good enough for a tie for 2nd place...
I'll say we lose that tiebreaker and we're seeded 3rd in the B1G Tournament.
We will make the B1G Championship game versus #1 seed Maryland...from there, all bets are off.
|20 hours 55 min ago||If Brandon had he way||
We'd never play either.
|22 hours 38 min ago||He was.||
|22 hours 44 min ago||I'm glad||
I'm not the only one triple posting.
|22 hours 46 min ago||You can't blame a message board poster||
For linking a local radio station.
It's not like it was a known bad source...and you can't send the radio station to Bolivia.
|22 hours 48 min ago||Double post...use it for good.||
|22 hours 49 min ago||Triple post...use it for good!||
|22 hours 51 min ago||This is HUGE||
Let's get Corley, Hill, Kareem, Gary and Jones.
|22 hours 57 min ago||FUCK YEA!!!!||
|23 hours 9 min ago||Michigan will win both||
Michigan will win both divisions and rest during the B1G Championship game for the CFB playoff.
|23 hours 13 min ago||It's perfectly fine at Baylor||
410 lbs, starting TE.
|23 hours 24 min ago||^^^^||
HOT TAKES! GET YA HOT TAKE HEEERE!!!
|23 hours 28 min ago||Pot meet kettle.||
We literally just did that in 2011.
|23 hours 29 min ago||They'd never hire him...||
Del Rio is probably their next coach...or someone considered a "splash" hire. Especially with Mora being somewhat successful just down the road.
I think he stays at Arizona, he's got no reason to leave...the Pac 12 is the 2nd best conference in the country. UF just got a new coach, FSU just won a national championship. I suppose he'd be mentioned for a Miami job, but that really doesn't make sense for him if he remains successful.
If he flames out...he'd be a steal at UCF or USF, IMO, he'd turn either into a Boise/TCU type. And they'd be in the ACC or Big XII after his success.
