Michigan, Will in Fact, Be Going Full Zubaz for the Big Ten Tournament

By Jason Priestas on March 15, 2013 at 11:47a

It turns out that Michigan, will in fact, don the awful adizero uniforms from Adidas for their Big Ten tournament quarterfinals matchup with Wisconsin Friday.

The uniforms, unveiled last month, were roundly mocked for their apparent homage to Zubaz, one of the great fashion tragedies of the 20th century.

At the time, reports indicated Michigan and North Carolina State would not wear the uniforms, but Michigan had simply issued a non-denial denial, saying only that they would not wear short-sleeve jerseys, while remaining silent on the topic of shorts. Pretty cheeky.

Remember, there's a banana version of these unis out there as well.

Guys, let's not judge too harshly: they're simply paying homage to the fashion the last time they were relevant in basketball.

Now this is a great burn, good sir.

You can feed a bobcat all the chili it wants. That don't mean it's going to crap out diamonds.

That slap across the face was quick, deliberate and on target. Bruce Lee would be proud.

This look SCREAMS Michigan.
It should be worn and fully embraced. . .
by losers everywhere.

Banana, mustard, neon yellow...whatever you call it, it's ugly. The banana version looks like a used shower curtain. Michigan can have them.

I prefer "neon-pee colored".

Hail; hail.

I can't believe I ate the whole thing.

What? What?
The dark blue unis actually appear to be tolerable; not likable, but I can stomach them.  Of course, I thought the bleed out unis looked tolerable in pictures and I was, clearly, wrong about that.

Those who stay will be CHAMPIONS!

BTN's Brent Yarina picked up on the Zubaz homage too.
Speaking of BTN, head over to their conference dunk bracket and vote for our boy Sammy Slammin' Thompson. He's holding a slight lead over Iowa's Eric May.

Vote has been casted! The fact Oladipo dunking on us is the #1 seed makes me throw up in my mouth a bit...

I'd like to thank Notre Dame for paying Homage last night and reminding me I need limes for the weekend.

Nothing like dancing on the field in 02...

I don't get Adidas. Everyone hates these unis. Man they suck. I just want to punch their face.

If they're blue, they can't be that bad.
OK, yes they can. 

Class of 2010.


Those unis really seem to be helping them right now vs. Wiskie LOL

I actually think they would look better if they were Zubaz on the top and bottom. The mismatch between the shorts and the top make it look 1000 times worse. They look like a kid who played JV but is dressing varsity and had to change jerseys in between games. 


They kind of look like pajamas

Paying homage to their faithful that wear mullets and think their team is "bad to the bone".
