Thursday the Michigan basketball team took part in a photo shoot in preparation for the upcoming season, and that presented the opportunity for the Wolverines to show off their new maize uniforms. While the uniform tops look simple enough, the shorts have an interesting pattern on them that elicited quite the reaction on social media.
Below is a photo of senior guards Spike Albrecht and Caris LeVert in the new jerseys.
For those who aren’t all too thrilled with Michigan’s new uniforms, this will be their final season with manufacturer adidas. During the summer the athletic department inked a deal with Jordan Brand that goes into effect next July, meaning that the “Jumpman” logo will be a fixture in Ann Arbor for years to come.
Western Kentucky asks fans for input on alternate jersey design
In recent years some college basketball programs, most notably Memphis, have allowed fans to vote on various court designs with the school going with the design that receives the most votes. In regards to its options for an alternate jersey Western Kentucky is using a similar approach, with the school giving fans three options from which to choose.
The primary color of the jersey will be black, with fans getting to choose from a red, camouflage or red & white side panel. According to the site voting will run throughout the week, with the winning design to be unveiled next Monday. Personally I’m a fan of the camouflage look, since it’s a design rarely seen outside of the special jerseys made for a couple of those aircraft carrier games in the past.
VCU’s basketball program will be getting new uniforms this season. The changes are subtle, but there is one thing that I would have done differently were I the one making the decisions.
Why isn’t ‘Havoc’ written on the jerseys somewhere? More than anything, that’s the word that is associated with VCU’s program. It’s written on every sign in and around the Siegel Center. It’s written on the seats on one side of the courts. It’s the program’s identity.
Wouldn’t it have been awesome to get that on the uniform somewhere?
