MBB to Wear 1968 Throwback Jerseys vs Penn State

According to Rothstein:

Michigan basketball is going to wear 1968 throwback jerseys for its home game on Feb. 17 against Penn State. Part of the Crisler dedication.

Looks like you can buy Cazzie's at the MDen too: http://www.mden.com/shopping/product.cgi?TI1203+2030


Are these some jerseys people like for once? I for one approve, and wish they weren't so expensive to buy.


EDIT: pasadenablue made me realize I have no pic of them, he posted one a few posts down to compare to our home jerseys from a few years ago, here they are:

Love the throwbacks and the uni Stu is wearing here...which by the way are also by Adidas. Not sure why we ever deviated from this design. Indiana also wears Adidas and has a design just like this today, so I don't think they've scrapped the template. Someone in the AD actually thought our current unis look better than these classics and opted to make the change.

That font should be a Michigan standard.  Basketball and football.  It oughta be a law.

Note, 1968 football uniforms; same thing:


And most of all; note the circle-M socks.  Both football and basketball.  Some of these tribute themes are so obviously overlooked; I almost hate to suggest things for adidas, knowing how they will screw it up.

I'm actually excited about this. This is the way to do alternate jerseys, as was a few years ago when they wore the 1989 throwbacks. A good, clean, classic look that hearkens back to one of the golden ages of Michigan basketball (the 1968 uniforms appear to be the same as the Cazzie teams of 1964-66 wore).

Plus they won't sear my retinas.

Looks like all the bitching paid off, they're switching official providers from Adidas to Tiedman & Formby.

-The all maize/bleed out jerseys are "OK" now because...THEY WON. Just like UTL and The Sugar Bowl jerseys.

Adidas for the next 100 years.

It's probably just the picture, but am I the only one that thinks that Jimmy's block M on his shorts are higher than Chris and Jalen's. It just looks to me that it's in the middle while everybody else's is it closer to the bottom. I had a pair of those shorts when I was younger and I distinctly remember the M being closer to the bottom. Not really a big deal, just an observation.
