Given the ridiculousness we've seen around football and basketball these days, I'd just call those "Uniforms" not "Uniformz".  They look reasonably normal, and somewhat understated (for 2014) which is somewhat shocking for a school like Miami IMO.

guys actually doing the Bernie? Either these dudes are some serious Oakland A's fans or. They are just way too easily impressed by some ok new uniforms.

I'm surprised no programs have offered to let star recruits design the team uniforms as an incentive to come to their school.  Or maybe we just haven't heard about it?

You mean to tell me that there are this many young men who care so much about their appearance that they jump all around a room. Man, the vanity, our coach took all the mirrors out of our locker room, that shit ain't a fashion contest, it's a football game!

...they're rebanding the entire University right now. I believe they're going back to the "traditional" style for everything. (No, not the logo...just the look in the jerseys).

I expect them to do something like Northwestern, simple, yet unique.

This just conforms to my principle that we should in fact wear alternates at least once a year, because it plays a role in recruiting.

Every new uniform sequence gets kids pumped up. I know, I know... "Tradition, tradition.... Rabble rabble rabble. Tradition, tradition, rabble, rabble, rabble..."

I have no problem with us playing one non-conference night game a year vs. a big name, but "meh" team and getting all "untraditional" with it. 

Wear the all-maize uniforms, play your RAWK, (don't touch the helmet), and make it very teen/young adult friendly.

For every other game during the year, it should be traditional Michigan.

But give them their night...no problem with that. Play mid-level big names like UNC, Ole Miss, Washington, Cal, UVA, etc.

You say "why not play a major/top ranked/powerhouse school?" Because I don't think Michigan should be playing the Texas/Alabama/Florida/FSU/etc.'s with alternate/funky uniforms. Be MICHIGAN on those days...

But give the young folks one night and one game. I think it would be fun...rock out in the all Maize and go play a team people know, but aren't going to get upset over if they miss the game because they don't wanna be part of the younger atmosphere.
