Alternate Jersey Release Open Thread

Submitted by Mr Mackey on June 10th, 2011 at 7:52 PM

Well, after weeks of speculation, we will all discover what our Michigan Wolverines will be wearing at the night game against Notre Dame. 

8:00 on Mgoblue.com, they will be unveiled. Apparently, the players all really like them.

As long as the game results in a W for us, I'm ok with whatever they wear. 

Hopefully they don't look too bad!

Hey look, more shoulder stripes.  I forgot though, that stripes are Adidas' "thing".  So it makes sense that they'd incorporate them (though I'd have expected three, rather than two).

... but except for the shamrock on the helmet and the socks, aren't they just standard white jerseys with green numbers? If UM did that -- standard blue jerseys with maize numbers -- we'd just be wearing our standard home jerseys.

Final Verdict: ND wins the fashion contest but UM did a far better job executing the throwback concept. And, as always, we still have the better helmets!

Does anyone else notice how the helmets on the two mannequins are different?  I'm not sure which one is the normal helmet.

Also, who's #53?  Is that Jake Ryan's number?
