Uniformz Doom At Hand?

Submitted by Brian on June 8th, 2011 at 2:00 PM

An eagle-eyed user caught this: the M-Den is now listing something hardly different from the doomiform the Free Press published and Dave Brandon laughed at:

That looks official what with its number and the Adidas logo and looking all like a thing that exists in the world. You still can't buy one (it errors out when you click on the monstrosity) but I think it's official enough to say that Michigan is going to look very, very stupid when they take the field against Notre Dame.

(new scoreboards new scoreboards new scoreboards not a cesspool of filth and corruption so deep Sepp Blatter is impressed deep breaths)

It could be one of our school colors? Perish the thought! I expect Dave Brandon to personally consult me for all of the latest insights I gather from constantly dressing all my Barbies with all of my hand-made Barbie-sized prototypes for really respectable throwback Michigan jerseys.

...it's a fucking shirt. get over it, girls.

mirrors my thinking. I don't prefer the jersey, but it is a throwback game, many of which do not include cool uni's. A throwback Texas jersey is still so close to the theme. If this is the shirt, I want the boys to lay an ass whoopin' on ND wearing them. Many will quickly forget the look when posting a W on ND.

I think the Nike futuristic combat unis are way way worse. These look like funky soccer jerseys...not ideal for football or when you compare them to the best uniforms ever (our regular ones), but certainly could be worse.

They were pouring fresh concrete a month ago for the new supports, put up the new supports as you described, and then painted both sides in the gray that you see in the picture. Couldn't tell you when the actual boards will be going up, though.

As I understand it, they had to pour all new footings.  That's how big those bastards are.  

As for the jerseys, these would be cool, IMO, as a soccer jersey (setting aside the fact that the soccer jersey we had last year was 100% awesome already).  I have a harder time thinking of it as a football jersey, but it could grow on me.  YEAH I SAID IT

Crist will be confused by the crinkling and throw four INTs.  We can call him "Crist Crinkle". 

Also, the idea of a maize away jersey (dark blue pant) intrigues me.  I'm aware of how this board feels, but hell, the maize bball unis are sweet, and ditto hockey.  Why is everyone convinced that maize fb would look turrible? 

I personally think our white away unis are weak.

I think you'll find much more support for messing with road jerseys than the home jerseys.  Road jerseys have changed more historically, leading up to the stupid yellow piping/stripes we've got now.  My favorite is the late 90s white's with the Block M on the shoulder. Maybe that's because I associate it with the '97 team.  See how good A-Train looks in this getup? 

That said, if everyone wants to see us in Maize jerseys, I wouldn't fight it on the road jerseys wherever we could get away with it.  I vote no for any major changes to the home kit.

I saw that as soon as I posted, must have been seconds apart. That is an odd color, or at least a different maize than their pants and helmets. Maybe for the game jersey if it were the matching maize and the right size so you could see the numbers on the shoulders it would look better, but those don't look that good.

I just threw these together in photoshop, so it's nothing special, but here's the three considerations I've heard for a maize jersey.

maize & white

maize & maize

(and yes, with paintbucket lolz...)

maize & blue

personally, I think these all look pretty awful, and it's not just that I suck at photoshop.

Fauxbacks.  Brilliant!!

We never wore anything remotely like that in our hsitory. 

They're just making shit up with no context.  They may as well just have the players wear those fake tuxedo t-shirts for the night game.  It would be no less authentic.

ND can wear unis that look like prom dresses, since they'll be our bitches that night.

Terelle Pryor will provide the limo's.

But, for the record and what I might write, does anyone on this board truly like these uniforms? I'm asking in all seriousness.
