Alright so I usually don't like our alternate jerseys, but the matte helmets are awesome IMO.
Easily my favorite alternate to date
Love the helmets but I'm not crazy about the shoulders.
Go Blue & Gig Em'!
I think it would look cool if we had those uniforms with matching blue pants.
I wish we had an all maize uni with blue helmets!
Best Alt's by far... My favorite!!
Did Kovacs get smaller?

Sorry for the stupid question, but can you please explain to me what "matte" helmets are? Thanks.

This uni does not appear to be much different from the regular uni. I think it looks good. They didn't really try to push the envelope at all with this one, so wasn't really anything to mess up. FWIW, I liked the throwback uni's that Michigan did last year with the stripes on the shoulders.
"matte" is a look with no gloss. It looks like these alternate helmets are partially matte. The maize portion is glossy, but the blue appears to be matte.

Looks like I'm in the minority here but I think those look like a hot mess. The helmets aren't so bad but the rest of the uniform???
Oh, okay. Thanks.
I was actually wrong initially. It appears those helmets are partially matte. I edited my original post.
I love the Helmet, not wild about the Jersey.
I'm probably in the minority, but I'd love to see us try a white and blue top, with navy pants. Or a white and blue top, white pants like they had in practice last year.
Think it would look real crisp.
What about all white...with blue numbers...white helmet with blue wings outlined in maize. And to bring the maize together, Maize undershirt with a touch of maize on the cleats. Would look sick.

I just don't like this block-color-shoulders deal. I didn't like it for the Alabama game, and I don't like it here. The matte helmet is a good look though.
I don't like any of it.
Of course, I may just be turning old and into Grandpa Simpson...
I like the whole thing, I really wish those were the new away jerseys.
If the helmet is not blue with maize wings there will be blood in the streets.
These jerseys are alright - I think the numbers are a bit too "pop-out" but it could just be this model.
I think it looks pretty bad. The shoulders didn't look good when they were yellow, and they don't look good here, plus they look awkward with the yellow pants.
I don't care about the helmets. Partial matte or gloss. I don't get why you change it for one game, but whatever.
I'm starting to worry this is gonna be another perfect storm of ugliness like 2011 MSU and 2012 Alabama.
Just had a thought, what about blue pants and and a maize winged design on blue shoulders that starts at the edge and the lines go up towards the collar? Probably would look awful but I'm curious about other designs that could be worked in, instead of just big blue shoulders.
Not sure a maize outline could work, generally maize directly next to white looks not so good.
Don't like em. I'm really sick of the alternates in general.
