Since we’re something of uniform junkies around here, we were quite interested in Michigan’s special uniforms for the season opener against Alabama.
The school describes the changes:
Michigan, adidas and the school’s helmet providers have worked to match the colors in both the helmet and uniforms.
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.”
My favorite part is the gloves. Very cool.
