    Another reason to like our uniforms

    U of Michigan just unveiled their new uniforms today. They didn't change their home uni's (thankfully), but they did the road uni's. And for some reason they ended their relationship with Nike and went the Adidas route. Curious what others think, but to me, this reaffirms how much I like our new uniforms.

    Cyclone
    Iowa State became the Cyclones after they leveled Northwestern in 1895. As the Chicago Tribune (9/29/1895) noted:
    'Struck by a Cyclone
    It Comes from Iowa and Devastates Evanston Town'

    I'm thinking they didn't want to be confused as Delaware any more....

    Those look like West Virginia.

    That's the first thing I thought. I also like them better than the old ones.

    Re: Another reason to like our uniforms

    I think they look aweful. What is with the quote on the inside hem. It kinda sounds rediculous. This is just my opinion though.

    Actually, it sounds like a real neat idea IMO.

    “We’re celebrating what’s special about the school,” said Mark Clinard, Adidas’ business unit director for football, baseball and motor sports. “The details are what speak to that. As we learned more at very beginning stages of partnership, we were looking at what’s special about Michigan. We put Bo Schembechler’s famous quote ‘Those Who Stay Will Be Champions’ in the hem of the authentic jersey. It’s not just about us just putting a logo on the program. We also have (silicone prints of) the 42 Big Ten championships on the inside of shoulder pad area. We can do everything with the outside of the jersey to uphold the honor and tradition. We’re putting more on the inside.”

    I like the idea of the quote, it's a new idea (that I know of). Nice to see people thinking outside the box.

    Re: Another reason to like our uniforms

    this is old news. i personally like the new, trendy design as opposed to the classic approach we took. it would have been nice to see something like the U or hawaii or oregon that is original, or even something like maryland. we got usc's hand-me-downs instead.

    Re: Another reason to like our uniforms

    I hate uniforms that are too "busy"--see Oregon for example A. If they'd get rid of the horrendous shoulder and knee plates, they wouldn't be too bad, but holy cow. The UMich ones are terrible, but I'm glad our uniforms are simple.
