Report: Michigan to Wear Alternate Uniforms in The Game, Too

Hours after we broke the news that Ohio State would wear all-white uniforms against Michigan, word comes from Ann Arbor that the Wolverines may do the same.

MLive's Kyle Meinke threw a bit of water on that report, however:

We're kind of hoping the report is true because Adidas will no doubt cook up something atrocious for the Wolverines.

A Michigan Man's Alternate Jersey: some sort of boat shoe/flip flop hybrid, a thin cardigan over a ratty t-shirt, and cargo shorts.

All purchased at Wal-Mart.

That's too high class.
Maybe ... donated by Canada?

Can't wait to see what eye gouging garb these assclowns don for the ensuing beat down in their own back yard is.
michigan sucks

I know there's a game Saturday, and my ass will be there.

At first I thought this was serious and I was laughing my ass off until I saw the claws....

Can someone please make a shirt with five men made out of donuts? A big glaze body. Long john legs. Donut hole head. And twig arms. So the world can see what their oline is made of. Oh, one more thing, have one of the figures leaking raspberry from its donut hole head.

Kalis asked to wear red to mask his bleeding wounds but Taylor Lewan shot down the idea. Apparently, he thinks that if you refuse to wipe the blood from your forehead, people will ignore how poorly you play.

He was adamant.

What he meant was, they have adamantium.

Denny's picture

Actually, he was saying that he was Adam Ant.

Will they have donuts on them?

I once played touch football and scored a touchdown

razrback16's picture

I read that the helmets will have donut sprinkles in a winged shape.

Hoke's attorney will certainly claim that it was entrapment after he bites the heads off of every player on his team.

scUM players ought to just wear body bags and save the coroners some trouble.*wink

Yes! I can't wait to see what sort of ridiculous abomination before god Adidas has come up with.

I hate to add this link, but there are some hilarious comments here.
especially putting Gardners name on the front since he spends a lot of time on his back, pure maize there.


Buckeyevstheworld's picture

They should come out in the same jersey as OSU just maize and blue. Where they have scarlet and gray. The game would feature 20 interceptions. 15 from OSU, because Gardners just looks if there is an open guy doesn't matter what team it is.


"YOLO" = I'm about to do something extremely ignorant/stupid & I need an excuse to do it.

Doc's picture

Thanks for that. There was some funny shit in that thread. I love the one that suggest putting "Watchout Devin," on the name plates of the offensive linemen. He figured that would giver Gardner fair warning on what was coming

good stuff over there.... man, they are some bitter UM fans for the way their season is going. Here was my favorite "Curly Fries pitches it to Roast Beef n' Cheder. No, wait. It's the sandwich option! Jamocha Shake is open deep!"

my personal favorite over there was the suggestion they wear sweater vests.    Maybe that WOULD help them win the rivalry game, they have a point there!

This is how they get "dressed up" up north.

I really hope they don't do this...IF they do, they can't be worse than the MSU game bumble bee uni's can they.  can they?!?!  
the alternates for the Sugar Bowl weren't bad, but I prefer the traditional

I'm not quite sure why this is a thing...but it's simultaneously awesome and terrifying.

It's not possible for their unis to be uglier. Maybe they take that as a challenge.

Looks like we have a tOSU troll lurking on mgo:

In an effort to distance the university from what will undoubtedly be their most embarrassing loss of the season, the Michigan Wolverines have elected to wear Central Michigan Chippewas uniforms stolen from an unlocked storage container in Mt. Pleasant.

We're wearing MSU's uniforms so that after the 45-3 trucking it wasn't us.

i personally THINK THE alternate unies.....are cheap and unneccesary, it detracts from the original TTUNvstOSU.....  We are NOT  OREGON DUCKS, and are NOT in a fucking runway model series, if that were the case they would all be pussies......... scuse my language but I am very quickly becomming tired of this hollywood horseshit........  guess I will have to turn my fall attention to staring at get the same DAMNED RESULT !!!!!  Bullshit my AD you are an Oregon bred Maize lovin moron........ Mr SMITH just leave us and go to Washington, with the rest of the trash

Jelligrim's picture

Are they wearing the alternates from the bowl game last year with the helmets that pop off?

ChazBuckeye's picture

I think this is hilarious.  What ideas don't they take from us?  They've gotten some of their best coaches from Ohio, players from Ohio (two Heisman winners that get lost in translation some how), and lastly any ideas we use, they use in return.  The only thing they gave us were some players here and there (Krenzel-AKA Circle K, Gholston and Webb to name a few) and of course script Ohio.  Too funny with this uniform thing and they're hideous as all get out too.  I hope they use them, they'll look ugly and losing ugly too.  

Some people think we’re the hunted.I don’t feel that way at all.We’re the hunter.Everybody wants an angry football team.Everybody wants a team on edge and a hungry team.If you’re a hunter,that usually equates to being hungry.

I could be wrong, but I think the cartoon at the top is meant to be a joke and not a true resemblance of a uniform that actually exists.

Those claws can't be legal, can they?  I mean, it's one thing to have gloves that form a pattern when you put them together in a certain way, but it's quite another to give the players weapons.

Snarkies gonna snark.

They weren't even legal in Rollerball when they killed Moonpie.

Apparently they are wearing their normal uniforms:

Drunk or not drunk when this was said?   I'm assuming anyone and everyone at Mich above janitor level is permadrunk at this point.
