The whole '''well recruits love em!'' is bs. No recruit commits anywhere for the alternate uniforms besides oregon, but they have a lot of other things in their favor too. When you're just switching the number color and making the shoulders a different color, it hardly makes it ''cool''.
The whole thing is dave brandon drying to suck people dry. I'm only 18 but I'm not gonna fall for this crap.
Join me in my grandpa Simpson circle...
Helmets I like but I'm in the minority also, those jerseys are a disaster!
Just wish the maize on the helmet also had the matte finish...
Helmets are great.
Uniforms, on the other hand...
The helmets are pretty sweet. I don't know if its the light or what but the maize looks like a very light yellow on this. I'd like to see blue on blue with this matte helmet.
Adidas blows....no imagination or creativity. Their whole concept with Michigan and their alternative uniforms is to make them the least amount of alternative as possible. I would really like the fan base to vote on the next alternative unifrom, and I think it would be a great marketing ploy and something up Dave Brandons sleave. Check out the video for the Alabama game uniforms. Look at the sock at the 15 second mark. I would like them to do that same type of patter for the pants.
The University of Michigan football program and adidas have teamed to create a commemorative road jersey for the 2012 season opener against Alabama on September 1, 2012.
For the Cowboys Classic game against Alabama, the Wolverines will don a white road jersey with maize across the shoulders and down to the sleeve. Blue piping will separate the maize from the white on the jersey. A blue block 'M' will appear on the left and right sleeves of the jersey, and the player numbers will be blue. Michigan will wear its traditional maize pants with the blue block 'M' on the left hip. The Wolverines' adizero Smoke gloves will feature lyrics to the school's fight song, "The Victors."
