The slogans are always kinda 'meh', but I've thought the designs the last few years has been lacking (do they still have a student doing it? If not, that might explain why).
<br>Though I might have liked the slogan more if they had added a Hoke-like "for gosh's sakes!"

Adidas took over the design, as far as I know.  A friend of mine from undergrad was supposed to have done the design for the 2008 shirt, but it was yanked at the last second in favor of the adidas shirt.  I don't think there's been a student contest since.

Not too surprising there really hasn't been a great student shirt since.  But this one isn't bad.

I like the $10 gift card for every two you buy. I think I still have the gift card I got for buying last years shirt. I usually buy one for myself, one for my wife and two for my parents.

I want them to bring back the program accomplishments on the shirt, like in 2003 and 2004, instead of just posting the schedule.  Anyone can post a schedule.  No one else can claim to be the winningest program ever.

couldnt agree with you more. they had it for the 2006 season and it was kickass. i never understood the point of having the schedule on the back of the jersey. is there anyone who is like: hmmmm, i wonder who we're playing week 6. let me go into my dresser and read the back of the maize out shirt and find out.

but seriously, who cares about accomplishments when you have all the evidence needed to brag about strength of schedule printed right on your shirt

I actually like the picture, regardless of what it looks like.  I think knowing what it is for Michigan + what you point out here, there is a power to it.  Those are very powerful images.

I don't actually think the image should be replaced, but was thinking more about "This is Michigan" seemingly pulled straight from Hoke's introductory press conference.

I can't wait until the season starts!

Looks alright.
<br>On another note, does anyone find it hilarious that addidas' current promotional campaign of "All In" is a ripoff of the Michigan one.

Did anyone notice last year's fit wierd? It still just feels kind of cheap and cardboardy.

2008 fits like a glove and always did. I wonder if Nike is cheaping out on quality.

I hope this years is an improvement.

I mean I like the new t-shirt, it doesn't beat last year's, but I think the design, especially on the back is pretty awesome.  Stats are pretty cool and stuff, but I think it's cool that it focuses on THIS specific season, not the history of the program, since that's its goal.  I'm just hoping that one of these years people ACTUALLY wear maize for maize outs.  Seriously, save your blue stuff for Sunday after we win.  We need the maize to get a better home field advantage
