Ours has the virtue of being simpler, but fergodsakes those fucking morons at Adidas still can't figure out that outlined fonts on jerseys completely suck when it comes to communicating. The design incompetence is mind-boggling.

Here are the Michigan shoes for tomorrow night, if anyone was wondering. I hate the bleed out thing that Adidas is doing. I think it looked bad with every team, JMO.

has there been a new breakthrough in uniform manufacturing technology in the last several years?

if not, why ail of sudden has it become a good idea to come up with multiple versions of basketball uniforms almost all of which are worse than the standard uniform.

 

michigan's uniform is ugly (even the color is off)--ohio's is worse

Let's compromise for the benefit of all involved. Have each team wear their own jersey front and the oppossing team's back. This  should favor Michigan on offensive charge calls and ...

...aw, screw it. They are both butt-ugly.

This is team Adidas vs. team Nike, and it's dumb. I miss the days of "alternate" jerseys being unique. Now, Nike and Adidas just change the colors/name and trot out every team under its umbrella in the same "Hyper-Duper-Elite-Lighter-Mega" uniforms and call it a day. Michigan doesn't play for Michigan anymore, it plays for Adidas. Same for OSU and Nike.

And it's almost as if these companies are deliberately disrespecting the traditions of the schools and creating multiple variations of uniforms in an attempt to confuse fans so that their own corporate interests can rise to the top.

Sort of reminds me of the corporate shenanigans that Naomi Klein outlines in her book "Disaster Capitalism."

Ours look better close up.  I kind of like them (but won't buy one) and I don't like the logo/number stack on Ohio's, it's just too vertical.  

But watching on TV or from the stands, when you're not gonna be able to read "Michigan" on our jerseys, or see the numbers, and it just looks like we're wearing plain Maize colored tank tops and shorts, ours are gonna look worse.
