Jordan making 1997 throwback gear

These popped up today on MDen.

I'm very curious if a throwback jersey will be worn on 10/21.

I have some memory of seeing the t-shirt. Anyone remember the original versions of these? These were shirts made back in 1997, they're just now sporting the Jordan logo.

I mean, I love me some new gear and all, but just exactly how much stuff do they think we can store, let alone buy.  Not a knock on WD at all, just tiring of "new," "classic," "alternate," etc.

And yes, I get that they are paying us.

To each their own, but what is the significance of the bowl win items if you didn't attend the bowl or get the item as a souvenier from someone who did? What value do they hold if you can replace them at the dollar store? I know that sounds dickish and I don't mean it to be. I know you attend games and buy gear and are a true fan, but why keep a fake orange in your closet and tell yourself it represents the 2000 orange bowl when it has no real connection at all?

Although Michigan doesn't have the highest paid deal anymore, we still get the highest percentage of merchandise sales of any school. People buy a lot of Mich gear. People have different tastes in Mich gear and want a variety.

It doesn't cost the university any money for them to try a new shirt template, they can only make money. I don't see the issue.
