I woke up to a nice surprise this morning. Someone tweeted this and it was brought to my attention.

The font we're using is NBA Bulls. The first change to the font in almost 50 years. The classic #2 worn by Woodson is gone.

Are these supposed to be the finished product? Because right now we look like the Universriy of Michael Jordan.....I would suspect a block M somewhere on there or the will be blood!

I'm with you.  Something seems off about it.  I do like this version of Maize better.  Looks closer to the 90s Maize. I would like to see the block M somewhere.  Always like it when they put one on the top of the thigh on left side on pants and then on shoulders or something.

For not reading every single comment on this thread before replying to yours.  As far as Michigan traditions go, I think the block 2 font is pretty far down the list.  The picture of a jersey similar to this leaked weeks if not months ago showing the same #2 as these pictures do.  I don't think this was anything unexpected.  If these are the jerseys, they look pretty solid, I really don't care much about a single number looking a little different than it previously did.

with the rest of the number fonts.  5, 6, 8, and 9 are all similar constructs to 2 in how the number is built, yet this font makes it unique and out of place. It might look ok with the 7, but doesn't match the rest. The rest of the numbers look good and blocky.

I also think the size of the numbers looks slightly too big. Maybe a reduction by 10-20%.

Number font - how do people feel?

They obviously look very similar to the Adidas jersey last year, and the number font could be different to help make it different without changing it.

Numbers font - I really like it

Are we allowed to move the B1G logo to the back shoulder/collar of the jersey? If so, these are perfect. Hoping the maize paints get the block M, but other than that, I perfer the clean jersey to a cramped one. Shout out to jharkelroad1.
