This is taken from Adam Rittenberg's, of ESPN, Big Ten blog. Wanted to see what you micigan fans thought of the new Uniforms and some of the cool things they did like former coach Bo Schembechler's famous message -- "Those who stay will be champions" -- being embroidered on the inside hem of the jersey.
Things are changing in Ann Arbor, from the coach to the offense to the strength program and, now, to the attire. Michigan's new football jerseys, produced by new sponsor adidas, were unveiled Monday.
Check them out for yourself. Are you "amaized?" I'll be here all night.
Among the highlights:
- Former coach Bo Schembechler's famous message -- "Those who stay will be champions" -- is embroidered on the inside hem of the jersey. Nice touch.
- Prints of Michigan's 42 Big Ten championship seasons line the interior shoulder panels. We can't see them, but the players can.
- The ClimaCool fabric placed around the jersey allows for good ventilation. That will pay off for what should be a toasty Aug. 30 opener against Utah.
The home jerseys don't look a heck of a lot different, but the road ones could spark some debate among the old blues. The maize stripes wrapping around the sides might take time to get used to. Replica jerseys are available Tuesday, while fans can begin buying authentic jerseys Aug. 1.
According to the Detroit Free Press, coach Rich Rodriguez signed off on the jerseys, which were part of the eight-year, $60 million licensing agreement reached by Michigan and adidas.
