as a random Michigan shirt to wear at games that doesn't make you look like a tool wearing an actual football jersey.  It looks like a soccer jersey/dri fit type of shirt.

I can't imagine how bad the players will look wearing it, but I'd sport it as holligan type shirt.

I don't think it looks THAT bad, but it's not good. It still looks better than the Big Chill hockey jerseys. The blue could be darker. There could be less stripes. Whatever, if it gives ND the dizzies as Denard runs circles around them, I'm fine with it. Obviously, I prefer the regular home jerseys.

I don't like the stripe sleeves.  Only a handful of teams from 1880s-1910s wore a uniform with stripes on their sleeves. Why do we have to go so far back for our throwback uniforms?

They didn't lose four games.   They went 8-3 overall.  Back then the regular season was 10 games long.  

The season started poorly, with early losses to Missouri and MSU, but then finished very well.  The team struggled some in the early going as the players became acclimated to Bo's system, but were a machine down the stretch, dominating their last 4-5 opponents.  Then Bo had the heart attack on the eve of the Rose Bowl and the team wasn't the same that day.  With Bo they'd have probably won and finished 9-2.

I agree it would look better if they dropped the number of stripes. Since the game jerseys the team typically wears have much shorter sleeves, i am hoping that will make it look a little better. What I really don't like is the stitching on the M and the numbers that makes all those triangles. Leave the block M alone.

What's with the stitching on the Block M? I can live with the rest (sleeve stripes are odd, but they have to do enough to make them look different than a plain blue jersey), but the M filled with triangles is just bizarre.

I dont mind these too much, if they would make different style numbers, take out the block M, and make it a darker blue these would make for a decent change up jersey.

It's not the worst thing I have ever seen, but I really don't like the sleeves. I think the stripes should maybe be just on the shoulders with solid blue the rest of the way down. Interesting that MDen would be the ones to leak it, if it really is the jersey. I may buy it, just to be different.

...does it come in yellow?  'Cus that would be AWESOME, bro!

Who the hell am I kidding?  I'll buy the damn thing like the lemming that I am.

I don't dislike it. I'd buy it if it wasn't $80. I think it'll look a lot different on the players and it will probably look a lot better with the helmet to complement it.
