It feels like a day hasn’t gone by this summer without a football program unveiling new uniforms for this fall and on Monday that program was Michigan.
The Wolverines and Adidas released a commemorative jersey to be worn when Michigan faces Alabama in Cowboys Stadium on Sept. 1 that includes numbers on the legendary winged helmets (not included in photos), a yellow stripe and block “M” on the shoulders and some mind-blowing gloves with words of the fight song, “Hail to the Victors!” on them.
Like the fight song itself, people are either going to love or hate the gloves that have already been described by the college football blog KegsNEggs as “Words With Friends on acid” in a tweet.
