A couple of readers pointed out that the new away jerseys being sold on the M-Den look like this:

Instead of this:

The home jerseys have changed, too, but the result is not as drastic on the less detailed blues.

Obviously the color on the first one is due to some weird lighting instead of a complete break with Michigan history. (Either that, or I have to raise a robot army to kill whoever's responsible.) I heard about the stitching change for the front numbers a while ago but didn't think they would change the collar, number position, and sleeves. Taken all together it's a pretty noticeable difference. I don't know what I think of it yet... I thought the new hockey jerseys they introduced a few years ago were going to look ridiculous but ended up liking them a lot. So judgment will be reserved.

Wow, that was a lot of free advertising for the M-Den. You can't buy this sort of publicity, mostly because I'm not selling it.

(Thanks to readers Douglas Dillon and Brent Accurso for the heads up.)

Update: Jesus Christ, there's a yellow stripe on those things. Look up at the shoulder... I completely missed it before. New opinion: goddammit.
