Rumor: Yellow Jerseys for ND Night Game

Submitted by Geaux_Blue on June 3rd, 2011 at 12:57 PM

Take this with a grain of NaCl but I've now heard this from multiple people who don't know each other:

Michigan's night game jersey will be Yellow.

No word yet on if it will be like the blue and white hockey sweaters with number on chest like has been discussed on the board but IDK. Could this mean white pants?! OMGz.

and alumni pulling their hair out, jumping out of windows, and lying in ruin in a place where there is weeping and gnashing of teeth every time the Michigan basketball teams suit up for a game in all maize kits. Maybe I just haven't been paying close enough attention.

The horror!

Michigan's football uniform is a cultural icon; the basketball uniform isn't.  Except for the baggy shorts and black shoes worn by the Fab Five, of course.  I don't think Michigan football is ready for that kind of culture shock.  Besides, the lighting is a lot different on a football field because of the grass (or turf that looks like grass).

Have you actually heard from the Alumni Association that you didn't get tickets, or have you just not heard yet?  I have not heard yet about my application, and am now increasingly nervous.

Paterno's feet have shrunk enough that the shoes are only metaphoric in size. Paterno has gotten to the point of almost being a poor man's Lloyd... 8-9 win seasons are consistently valid/accepted/expected

I agree with you insomuch as we are talking about win-loss performance.  However, the icon that is Paterno is still large and imposing.  I would not want to work in that shadow, especially because you know he is not just going away entirely (see Carr's tenure in the AD office).

Put me down for a grain of CaCl2. Larger grains for a more ridiculous rumor.

If true, sign me up for the striped olde timey jerseys we were bitching about a couple of weeks ago. And give me a beer.

Good to know the pulse of the fanbase is in sync.   Yellow?   I saw that line and went to post and we got 4 responses already.   I'll take the 15yd penalty for piling on.
