Holy hell, thank goodness Michigan opted out of these!

USA Today story panning them.  I liked this bit:

3. Michigan and N.C. State had good enough sense to say no to Adidas, reportsSports Business Daily. In other news, we are all becoming Michigan and N.C. State fans this March.

The word "clowniformz" is thrown about all too casually in the times we live in, but these, good people, are clowniformz in the truest sense - they lack only the big red nose to complete the ensemble.

Imagine the game prep being lost by teams that have to spend valuable practice time learning to get the whole team in and out of a volkswagen beetle while making balloon animals . . .

Suppose someone told you at the beginning of this week that a horrible fate would afflict the basketball team this week. You got to choose which. Either 1. The team embarrasses itself on the court at Penn State, or 2. The team embarrasses itself on the court in March wearing those. Which would you pick?

I'm thinking, I'm thinking...

Its fun to joke about when things like this come up but if Michigan ever agrees to wear something like these I am going to email Dave Brandon and personally inform him that I will never, ever watch or attend a basketball game again.  I know, tough talk.  But everyone reaches a breaking point and I've just discovered mine at least with respect to the basketball team.

I know we have a tendency for fashion trends paying homage to 20 years ago, but this is just ridiculous. These weren't even stylish the first time around:

Holy mother of God.  The dude on the left is dressed EXACTLY like me in my 1977 Cranbrook graduation picture right down to the hair, shirt, the pants and the coat.  And the dude on the right has my hair style and looks like i did more than a little bit.

If I was at home right now and could scan in my picture and post it  next to these guys guarentee you wouldnt stop laughing for a week.
