These look pretty good. I feel like they took a much different approach to these than they did for Michigan. Something's different behidn the conceptualization with our alternates.

I think I actually liked the UTL jerseys, but I know I hated the big Block M on the front in place of the number - made it very difficult to figure out who I was watching at the game when the player was coming my way, and had to base my guess on size/position/etc, rather than just knowing by the number.

I tolerated it, inasmuch as there are damn few historical changes to play with in terms of Michigan's uniform history.  You basically have to dig back into the pre-number era for anything.

It is rotten, and stupid, to keep repeating it.  Not a precedent that I am fond of associating with Michigan as some sort of pioneer.

Nebraska had a very cool little history with "black shirts."  They could have done black jerseys which would have set themselves off very nicely from Wisconsin's regular road uni's.  Better than these things.

Wisconsin is another adidas school; are they dolling up their road uniforms for the Nebraska game in Lincoln?

There is nothing significant about a black N on the front of their jerseys...Adidas should've left that for the UTL jerseys only. It was cool when we did it. It wouldn't be if we did it again, and it's not cool when Nebraska is doing it.

Aren't they the 'black shirts?" Why not play off that with black...shirts (tops).

I'm actually a big fan of the new NW unis.  A night and day upgrade if you ask me.  They are doing something with what they got instead of looking like clowns.  Before this year it was a debate over worst big ten uniform and NW and Minn were up there.


July 27th, 2012 at 1:18 PM ^

but as far as my taste goes, I think it was the wrong way to create separation for NW - now I think they look like clowns.  

NW's new look is actually reminiscent of those god-awful uni's the Chicago White Sox briefly had in the early 80's (NOT the "shorts" version, though, from the 70's - now THOSE were the worst)

Definitely remind me of our UTL jerseys.  I know it's the "new thing" in college football, but this just looks like a red jumpsuit.  I'm not a fan.  Maybe if the pants and jersey were different colors?

Idk, this just looks too much like a one-sie to me with the red pants. And is it just me, or is this music that Adidas is using for these hype-videos incredibly corny and not "hype" worthy at all?

WOW the unitard look is not something you expect to see when talking about football unis. These are terrible,  NW are an upgrade, and Michigan's are growing on me.

Adidas Rep: "I know, let's make them all red so it's symbolic of them being covered in the blood of their enemies!"

Also, query: to all those who hate Nike due to "Pro Combat" madness, is this not exactly the same thing from Adidas? ("Tech Fit" madness, woo!). At least with Nike we'd have better quality fan apparel.

DISLIKE.  Their uniform would look better if it was maize and blue and they had winged helmets.  To be more clear, I would like Nebraska better if they were Michigan.


July 27th, 2012 at 1:43 PM ^

In my opinion, Northwestern's are better still. I don't like the "N" with the number on the should, and while I like this shade of red and the black together, there is something about this that makes me wonder if the designer was a fan of the uniforms from the first two seasons of "Star Trek: The Next Generation" for some reason - the spandex unitard is not a football look.
