MDen releases 2013 adidas football gear: "Camo Trouble"

Submitted by Wolverine Devotee on July 12th, 2013 at 7:54 PM

Here is some of the new gear by adidas for the 2013 season. 

Undershirt for a possible camo uniform? Looks awfully similar to the VICTORS VALIANT shirt worn in 2011.

I like the blue zipup and the grey jacket. Both look cool. 

I would be ok with a camo jersey if it was for a wounded warriors game. South Carolina had some cool camo Under Armour jerseys for their wounded warrior game.

They've had all this for sale for a couple weeks now, doesn't make sense why they are just now "releasing" them. And yea the blue polo looks nice but the rest just seems like its meant for one type of person and not a larger group on people. IMO

Camo would be sweet with those matte helmets.  I think it would be hard to pull off in Maize and Blue though.  I hope we decide to use camo, I'd definitely get a jersey and recruits would love the novelty.  I'm thinking it could be Blue camo like the bad guys from GI Joe.

What pisses me off about Adidas is that it seems like they are more concerned about their own brand and how to use the M logo to enhance and sell it instead of thinking about the best way to represent the university with its apparel.  Nike used to make some cool and classy stuff and then just throw the swoosh on it and it worked pretty well.

If you don't care for the adidas stuff, there are several other licensed producers of Michigan apparel that may suit your tastes. People getting worked up about polo shirts and pullovers is a new one.

I hate Nike, but I am hoping they come back soon or that we go to Under Armour.  DB should end the Adidas contract for incompetence on their part.  This has to be crippling merchandise sales.

But they are already huge in the states.  At least in the DC area, Under Armour has far more selection in stores than Adidas and a bit more than Nike.  They do also have some big colleges too, not as big as Michigan but I am not sure it would be "forever boner" for them at this point.  It would be good, but I don't see it having some sort of dramatic impact on the company.

This Adidas contract has probably saved me close to one thousand dollars since its inception. Thank you Dave Brandon.

Does anyone know where to get old Nike Michigan apparel? /s

But seriously, does anyone know?

Lol if Michigan were to go back to Nike (never gonna happen. It will be Under Armour next if there is a change), they would still do uniformz and people would still piss and moan.

Here is a recent Michigan Nike shirt. Nike has the license to BCS games even though the schools in the games might be with another outfitter. This is everyone's idea of ideal Michigan apparel?

And those lame Sugar Bowl locker room shirts. Pour Some Sugar On Me? Why? And the Fiesta Bowl shirt from that year was "Nacho Victory". What is this, third grade?

How about a nice "SUGAR BOWL CHAMPIONS" t-shirt and not some lame manufactured catchphrase. Like this-

Every year someone posts the new Adidas gear. Every year people bitch about how ugly it is. Every year people cry for Nike to fix the problem. Every year I post MSU gear made by Nike that sucks just as much. Nothing ever changes.

Nike MSU T-Shirts

Nike MSU Polos

Nike MSU Sweatshirts and Fleeces

Nike MSU Hats

If the colors and logos were swapped, would anyone be able to tell any difference between these and the new Adidas gear? But we'd still have a ton of bitching about the ones with the Adidas logos.

I admit to not necessarily knowing current trends or styles with/for Staee (e.g. your research supporting Staee hilarity). Being from Ohio, emphasis for me is and has been on ND and the greatest toilet the Olentangy has ever feared. So I may be taking a slight risk here, but (yolo) I honestly think most of this attire looks better than the Adidas line-up for us...

As a Temple University alumni and purchaser of related Under Armour products I must tell you that it is a slippery path with them as well. While they sometimes put out the awesomely understated (last year's cherry coaches shirts) they also sometimes put out the awesome tire fire (this year's basketball coaches shirt)...

Then again, give me this simple design with maize/blue and a subtle block M and we're talking.
