Equipment: Block M still on helmet nose bumper?

Submitted by Wolverine Devotee on September 2nd, 2015 at 5:38 PM

When the new road uniforms were unveiled via twitter by Chris Partidge, it featured of photo of De'Veon Smith sporting the winged helmet that once again had the "MICHIGAN" wordmark on the nose bumper.


Judging by the photo tweeted out by Erik Campbell of the team's locker room just recently, it appears they're still going to wear the helmets with the Block M on the nose bumper that was introduced last year.


If you enlarge the photo, you can also tell that Michigan will be wearing the Block M thighpads as well as they are in the lockers.

I mean i get it... We are Michigan... with the brand "M"....but shit, how many brand/logos do we reaaaalllly need plastered all over the uniforms to get the point that the team coming out of the tunnel is Michigan? ... I mean It is really not that big of a deal but jeez C'MON MAN, I think it is just a tad to much. Hopefully those thigh pads aren't that noticable like they are with Miami's.

To add to the confusion, the helmet in the graphics on Inside Michigan Football has the MICHIGAN bumper, and the helmet the official Facebook account was using to take pictures of fans heading out to Utah had nothing on the bumper...

So who the hell knows?
