New Football Jerseys

I haven't seen anyone post this, so here is a link to an article about Michigan allowing adidas to create a unique "Climacool" jersey.

“Working in collaboration with Michigan on the design of the new uniforms allowed us to create one of the most unique jerseys in college football today.”

Thoughts?

1. Articles that begin with "A sports jersey is a sort of uniform worn by players of a particular team." are more likely written for my girlfriend than for superfans.

2. The idea sounds not just cool, but climacool.

2a. As long as they aren't maize...

We Have used the same exact jerseys the past two seasons. I think we need some type of tweaking to the away jersey, anything just to change things up a bit. I get pretty superstitious about my game day shirt, I'd like something, a throw back 80's looking away jersey would be nice. Maize and blue stripes on the arms.

If you really want to get to the link, delete the first part in the window--mgoblog/mgoboard, etc. That said, it's a link to a website called "garagefriends," probably not the best news.

This article isn't about new football jerseys. It's an article about the already existing jerseys and how they have changed. They just so happen to be 2 years late on this story.

Also don't you think a much more credible source would have come out with something if we (UofM) were changing uniform designs?

Is it the Climacool part of the jersey that has been ripping on Michigan's jerseys the last two years? I know that Brandon Graham is awesome and a jersey cannot contain him but he always had holes in his jersey. He wasn't the only one. Thanks Adidas, for making Michigan cutting edge jerseys that constantly get holes ripped in them.

As reported above, Nike's jerseys had horrible problems with bunching last year. You can give a kid a new jersey if he rips one (trust me, they've got lots) but you can't give a kid a new jersey if it bunches and becomes uncomfortable.

NO WAY IN HELL...I love our colors maize and blue but seriously, maize pants and a maize jersey with a blue helmet with maize wings already on it? Good god man this isn't Oregon or West Virgina for god sake!

I don't think it's too much too ask of Adidas to make uniforms that don't rip so easily, while at the same time don't have bunching numbers or some other major quality control issue. I think that uniforms that tear at the seams or in the climacool fabric look sloppy regardless of straight tackle-twill numbers. It's ridiculously short sighted to think it HAS to be one or the other flaw.

EDIT: I also believe that Reebok uniforms had more of a bunching issue than Nike did.

I'm pretty certain that "garagefriends" is just a cut and past news item blog that is intended to garner hits based on search terms and then link to sales websites.

In other words, it's just a marketing scheme.
