I'm clearly spending way too much time reading gear threads, because today I realized as I was driving past the stadium that the font used for many of the ads on the jumbotron use the new font.

My fellow MgoBloggers, our long national nightmare is over. There were shirts that said Michigan Football that had a swoosh instead of the jumpman available for purchase.

Your lawns shall remain intact.

For the person that did the video or was there, is all the "maize" the same color?  The lighting shifts a lot in the video so it makes it look like we still can't match the colors.  But that may just be the video.  Is the maize finally all the same color, whatever that color is?

Don't get me wrong, I'm glad we got Nike. And the colors are on. But some of those shirts kinda' have the WalMart thing going on, if you know what I mean.

Suppose they'll get a little fresher over time.

I watched Sam's Periscope feed for a while and the gear looks pretty solid.

I'd spend about $200-$300 based on what they showed ...maybe a jersey later. Some stuff just tshirts and I have plenty of them, mostly from MGoStore.

Kinda pissed right now. I'm in Texas and thought this whole time I would be able to buy some gear at 11:00 my time, the same time as everyone on eastern time, but MDen.com is telling me right now I have to wait 2 hrs 15 min to buy. Surely there should be a way around this. Anyone?

Can someone please remind me how we ended up with adidas? I suspect it was money, but was it DB's call?

The years of purgatory we've lived through make today worth it. The combination of Harbaugh + Nike hype, no matter how you feel about either one, is literally priceless. Probably not going to win the natty this year but god damn it we're going to spank sparty

The U of M Athletics page has also posted a pretty lengthy video of a lot of the stuff along with some other videos. The M Football page also just posted a pretty awesome rendition of Hail to the Victors led by none other than Coach Harbaugh.

And then he introduced the actual band and the crowd is cheering and he said the word "championships" and there's maize and blue everywhere and oh man it's still five weeks awaaaaaaaaaaayyyyy

I'm ready for football RIGHT NOW.

Gotta second the "Wal-Mart" vibe to a lot of the gear. 

Definitely saw some awesome gear that I think Nike improved upon. But there's also a couple cheap looking items, which I was hoping would go away with Adidas.

Winner seems to be that zip-up sweatshirt/track jacket with the white zippers. Looks awesome.

Everything else, I dunno. The Nike stuff seems OK, but almost across the board, the Jumpman stuff looks pretty cheesy.

Feels too much like what OSU did with the "Ohio against the world" thing. Other than that, most of the gear was solid other than the few that featured way too much maize/amarillo. Reminds me of safety clothing
