What do we all think?  I'm personally a fan.

I've never been one to care about jerseys. I didn't care about the Michigan St ones or the bowl game jerseys but these are ugly. I'm a little disappointed. For the first time.

Meh on Wolverines, like it otherwise.  I was so scared when I clicked this thread.  Could be sooo much worse.  Mostly relieved that there aren't sleeves.  I mean just look at Baylor's (not for too long though).

I agree, Bando- I kind of liked them. Maybe it's nostalgia from seeing Jamal Crawford wearing the jersey (it looked great on him with the #1 and his tall, thin frame...sorry, Oscar season must have me in fashion model), but I liked the concept as well. Perhaps change the trim around the armholes and neckline to something less wide/solid, but yeah, I liked it as well. It looked the best on U of M. They did it with UNC's jersey's and it didn't look right at all, but it sort of works with the block M.

Indiana is so bad they can't even make the picture. Even Notre Dame got into the picture.

That or maybe they didn't agree to the alternates. I like imagining a world of the first scenario though.

The last time I counted, which was in July, I had over 50 shirts/jerseys. That number is not including shorts, pants, the football receiver glove collection and the football/basketball socks.

That number has definitely increased since I buy something at every single Michigan game I go to.

What I can definitely tell you is that-

  • I have the authentic home and road football jerseys worn from 2008-2011
  • A premier football road jersey and soon a home one
  • Each of the alternate jerseys from football.
  • six basketball jerseys 2010-11 - 2011-12 Home & Road and the current Maize jersey along with the throwback Glen Rice road jersey and the classic Home Cazzie Russel jerseys.
  • 3 hockey jerseys. Two of which are going to be officially retired from wearing during games to the, well, not good results they've had.
  • The Maize baseball jersey.

Can't wait to go to the athletic department garage sale this summer.

People look at me like I'm from Mars. I know I'm crazy.

Gah, boring. One of the thing I like about the current uni is that the shorts actually have a design on them. I've never really gotten over them abandoning the old 80s blue-panel home shorts, especially given how plain the white uniforms tend to be.

Shorts should have a block M and some color or design.

Ok, those are awesome. I'm speaking mostly of the white uniforms, and somewhat about the blue ones. Michigan's white uniforms, to me, have the potential to be horrifically bland. The one they've used for the last two years is, in my opinion, a significant upgrade over past editions.

The block M on the Fab Five unis was significantly bigger, which in my mind helps overcome the lack of design on the rest of the garment. I do, however, prefer some contrast color. The old/current unis, in my opinion, balance things quite well.

And the new tourney ones are ok.

More "template" uniforms.  It's the worst trend in collegiate sports.  Letting the manufacturers dictate template designs, into which they force schools under contract.

Indiana, I presume, said "No" to this.  They have a classic, iconic basketball uniform that they regard as emblematic of the brand of Indiana basketball.  I am guessing that they have decided not to compormise it.

No To "Wolverines."  Are we "the anti-mascot school"?  I kind of hope so.

It seems to me that the most handsome and most-admired basketball uniforms in recent years were the designs from last year where someone had the brilliant idea to go back to Michigan's basic, simple, classic design from the 1960's and early 1970's:

You think Dave Brandon is picking out uniforms?

If he is...he should be fired.

Can't stand YOU PEOPLE who want to use any excuse possible to bag on Brandon and have no idea what you're talking about. As clarified in the next post about Martin signing the contract.


The Brandon stuff is old. It's like the joke about James Harrison getting fined every time someone in the NFL does something wrong.

I am thrilled with the current state of the basketball program, and I want to start by saying that.  I do not like the yellow flecking on the jerseys or the shorts, though.  Michigan already has at least two tremendous sets of designs to work with: the uniforms worn in the Cazzie Russel era and the ones worn by the Fab Five.  The 1989 uniforms aren't bad either. Stick with one of those.  We don't need this new-fangled chicanery...And what's with Roosevelt trying to drive up wheat prices?  What business of that is his?

why Wolverines on the front? seriously, the design is decent compared to the other shit Adidas has come out with...but why is Michigan taken off the front? its a dumb, pointless switch...why is it so hard to just leave some things alone?


March 6th, 2014 at 12:13 PM ^

They are the same as all the other schools.  Make something original just for M and I'll be more on board for that.  I do like the jersey tho.

Well, at least they got the M on the shorts right. So there's that. But the TNG Q-esque vector shit on the shoulders and shorts... Yeesh. And, really not on board with Wolverines instead of Michigan.

Really, Adidas is just so bad at this stuff. I know, Nike isn't much better, but really, remember when we wore uniforms for Michigan, and not as vehicles for a shoe company's across-the-brand marketing ideas?

I just don't get the mindset of a designer who says "I know! Let's put this cool raised geometric vector design on the shoulders!" Or for last year's experiment, "I wonder if I could find a way to incorporate the old Fruit Stripe Gum animal print somewhere... Eureka!"

I like Michigan on the jersey, not Wolverines.  With all of the attention to the block "M", i'm surprised that something that didn't have the "M" in the name would be an option.
