New Adidas Techfit Jerseys: When?

Submitted by brewandbluesaturdays on November 12th, 2010 at 1:07 PM

Does anyone have any inside info on when the new techfit jerseys are supposed to be debuted? There is only one more opportunity at home and I was wondering if they (Adidas) was even producing any away techfit jerseys. Im guess I am just overly anxious to see us bust out something better than the JV baggy jerseys we rock right now...

$60 Million ($28M over Nike) with a nice little "most favored program clause" where no other school can earn more than Michigan.

I know it's not all about the money, but adidas was also putting two full time people on-site in Ann Arbor to support the athletic department (only 1 person at other schools) and a bunch more equipment and such for non-revenue earning programs than Nike. 

I would like to see a resurgence of the retro adidas logo:

I don't have any insider info, but I would assume that they debut the jerseys next year. It makes more sense from a marketing standpoint, especially if we are going to be getting a new away jersey which I hope we do.

Besides looking cool, what are the benefits of the techfit jerseys?  Would it make it hard for opposing teams to grab the jerseys since they are tighter?

We haven't won a game since the jerseys were debuted by Adidas (the week of the Iowa game).  RR promised the team he would let them wear them once they won a game and became bowl eligible.

You'll see them Saturday.  Book it!

Because they're douchers.

They feel the need to mark their territory by pissing on everything with their retarded logo.

Seriously look at RRs presser videos.  On his apparel you'll notice the Adidas logo 5(!) times, and the M logo twice.

Yeah, increased money, but how much are we losing because people aren't buying the adidas gear?  i haven't brought a single thing with that crappy shade of Maize they use. Hanging onto my nike stuff, hoping we go back.

Yeah, increased money, but at what cost?  Hey, we'd get money from advertising in the Big House, let's do that too.  We may as well, because our current apparel from Adidas is just as bad.  All of our coaches and players are walking Adidas billboards.
