U-M to use new uniforms Saturday

As our post-game hangover from last Saturday's debacle begins to recede (about as much as the memory of a hernia operation without anesthesia), we here at the MZone realize it's now time to start turning out attention to this week's opponent, the Oregon Ducks.

So, in an MZone exclusive, our crack investigative team has learned Michigan has a uniform surprise up its sleeve for this weekend.

Now while everybody who follows college football knows the Ducks change their uniforms as frequently as Michigan State changes head coaches...


...Michigan's uni design has stayed almost exactly the same since the 1920s, much like its offensive playbook.

But this week, Michigan is taking a page from Notre Dame.

No, we're not talking about getting ass-raped in front of the home crowd in the season opener like - we already did that. We're talking about going with "special uniforms" like the Irish do when they pull out their green duds.

Thus, after last weekend's debacle against Appalachian State, below is the first look at Michigan's new threads for Saturday...

once again, VERY funny stuff.

Hey... doesn't 1-AA have a playoff? Even though we lost to App. State, we can still win the national title......

what??? .... We're in Division 1-A?? Oh... nevermind.

(P.S. - Looked at ESPN's Heisman Watch... Armanti Edwards came in with one vote)

Thats pretty close to how Henne looks like during a pass rush.....

Get ready, rumor has that Oregon has a new uniform for this weekends game.

No matter what uniform combo Oregon has, Michigan is facing another spread offense with a mobile QB; hmmmm, haven't we seen that somewhere before?

Next week, an unranked and 0-2 ND v an unranked and 0-2 U of M... I bet NBC is going oh shit, at the prospect of that snoozefest.

I think Michigan will rebound and win this game handily. I'm not even a Michigan fan and I have faith!

Very good try--but still not as twee as having a waterfowl as a mascot.

I wonder who Michigan is running as QB on the scout team this week to prep for Oregon.... I hear Vick has some free time.

I love that you guys can really embrace the humor in the situation...as horrible as it is.

Dont feel to bad Yost, after all you did lose to the two-time defending NCAA Div. I National Champions.

See this is why you guys need a playoff. You'd still be in the hunt. If ever was a reason for the BCS and bowls to go away, it is from this loss.

Dudes,

That picture is just wrong.

whetstonebuck said...

By the way, when are you all going to get rid of that stupid-ass looking helmet? I think changing out the helmet may turn things around for you. Very bad mojo.

why should we be out of the national title hunt? No 2007 results have proven that Michigan is any worse than any 1-A teams. All we need is for App to go undefeated against 1-A (who else do they play?), we'll go on to win the BCS title game, and there would be no doubt that we are the best 1-A team out there, the second-best team in all of college football! (on second thought, we'd probably be worse than a few d-II teams too)
