    Michigan’s potential alternate uniforms. Click to expand.

    Michigan fans are buzzing following recent leaks of Maize colored jerseys with Blue numbers, apparently being sold at a Dick’s Sporting Goods store in Saginaw.  Pictures began circulating on social media, sometime yesterday including the image above. (EDIT: a picture has since been released on the Official Twitter Page for U of M football, posted below)

    I’ve been a Michigan supporter and fan long enough to know that these will raise some eyebrows, as we have some serious traditionalists in our fan base.  I too scoffed at the idea of all-maize uniforms until I saw the pictures.

    I actually like these!  They are sharp and other than the drastic color swap that seems to be aligned with the NFL/Nike Color Rush theme, they still have a traditional style without gaudy designs, stripes, or otherwise non-traditional markings.

    What we fans must also consider is that Florida appears to be coming out in all blue uniforms with a white, or lighter colored helmet.  Michigan could have just come out with the typical road jerseys, but for a neutral site game, I like the change-up.

    I can’t wait to see if the Wolverines really come decked out in this new look, and while I typically like the normal uniforms, I do like alternates from time to time.  Recruits do as well, and these are sure to catch some eyes.

    That’s all for now, BluePrint Fans, I just wanted to get a quick update out there so we can get ready to support our a-maize-ing team!  Go Blue (Go Maize)!
