    Granted, it's only for road jerseys because the home ones will still virtually untouched (according to the story), but I'm not sure I like this look for Michigan.

    Then again, it's the Rich Rodriguez era.

    i'm more surprised that they dropped Nike and went with Adidas. They've been a Nike school for over a decade and, I think, were one of the first to sign an endorsement deal with them.

    Yikes.

    I hated it when Michigan added the maze striping on the shoulders a few years back. These are ugly.

    The Michigan home and road jerseys are two of the best things in college football. That's no longer the case, at least IMO.

    Road jerseys look like West Virginia's.... and advertising in Michigan Stadium will not, mercifully, be up to Rodriguez. Bill Martin's whoring with luxury boxes will be enough.

    Those are hideous.

    UM had the road jerseys just about right in the last few years.

    Michigan has never been called "Big Blue." ::) ::)

    Holy mother of God that's horrible lookin'

    And I'm not sure how much Rodriguez had to do with this. WVU was a Nike school too as I recall. This was probably already in motion before he got there.

    What's the big deal? It's a little yellow stripe?

    It's like putting names on the back of Yankees uniforms... Some things you don't fuck with.

    You old guys are crazy about uniforms. Who cares? The kids are the ones who like them to changed every few years so they can have some different combos. Wearing the same jersey for 50-100 years is overrated. Should they go back to leather helmets or the jerseys with the shoe strings in the front?

    Maybe I crossed blue with Big House and got something new. Whatever the case, I am no Michigan historian.

    Thank you for telling me how I should feel. What should I have for breakfast this morning and what time should I shower, now that you're on a roll?
