  1. John Beilein said that the jerseys are still stuck on the plane as part of the investigation.  He said they will have to wear the practices uniforms for the rest of the tournament. Michigan will flip the jersey inside out and wear all blue practice uniforms tomorrow.

    I have to say this pattern is a miss for me. The way they executed this iteration of the "Tree Town" motif seems forced. Yeah, there are 3 campuses, North (engineering + fine arts), Central (main, liberal arts), and South (athletics), so I'm almost accepting of the rationale that they're represented by these arches, but when I think of all the diverse and ever-increasing architecture on campus, I can't say that this brick pattern is what first comes to mind. Maybe all the glass windows of the new medical/hospital buildings, or the classic American ivy of the law quad, etc.

     

    This wouldn't be so offensive if it was limited to a fill pattern for the new football uniform's sleevecaps, but I just saw the new volleyball uniform, and this pattern is on repeat fill all over the jersey. Not really looking forward to seeing this weird industrial tree become an integral part of our athletics identity.

     

    On the website it said the three campuses thing also represents Ann Arbor, Dearborn, and Flint.  Strange, considering Dearborn has their own NAIA sports teams.

    Pretty nice font, overall.  Nice to see it isn't a modern mess.  (Does the center bar on the five rise just slightly higher than the 3, 6, 8, and 9, or am I seeing things?  Why would that be?)

     

    No, you are right.  It is pretty close, but the bar on the 5 is a bit higher.  I'm not sure why they would have done this.  Other than the bar on the top of the 4, I'm pretty happy with the font.

  4. Thanks guys! It took a long time, but I am glad I finished it. I'm sure I'll have some more concepts posted some day. I'm just not sure when that will be or what I'll do. Anyway, thanks again for following.


  5. Well its the last one. Thanks to everyone that has commented. It's been a lot of fun.

    New York Yankees

    The Yankees uniforms are prefect and there is not much that can improve them. The home alternate is a cream version of the throwbacks from last year and the road uniform is simply a blue version of the road jersey. Not much else to say about it.

  6. Baltimore Orioles

    The Orioles have a pretty good set, but I have a few small changes. The home and road stay the same because they look pretty good. On the orange jersey I added a white piping on the sleeve and I added white to the black jersey. The O's cap is gone because I feel it's not needed and the bird hat is much better.

  7. Green doesn't go with light blue, sorry.

    I'd say 95% of everyone here disagrees with you. Just look at Tulane.

    I think it compliments nicely. Like dsaline said, Tulane looks great with it.


  8. The vest reminds me too much of the old D-Rays days when the team was awful.

    This was something I was worried about with the entire set. I always thought the vest looked nice and I want it to return, but if people don’t like it because of its history then I will have to change it.


  9. Tampa Bay Rays

    The Rays should have never gotten rid of green. It was a really good color scheme for them. I returned to green and kept the light blue because I think it compliments it nicely. In an attempt to make the uniforms a little less plain, I returned to the old double piping and a vest jersey that I always liked for the Rays. I didn’t think a light blue brim would look good on a green dominated set so I went with another green hat, but with the sun ray logo.

  10. I think you should try and see what that alternate cap would look like with the home jersey.

    I thought about doing that. The only thing I was worried about was the Orioles are in the same division and have a white panel hat. I didn't want them to be too similar.

    But honestly, that wouldn't matter with the huge color differential they have. And c'mon, this is nostalgia at its finest right here..

    Haha, well that's true. I could change it. I am curious to know how others feel about it.
