Did anybody else notice Michigan wearing a darker shade of maize this past Saturday vs Oregon State? It's the first thing I noticed when I turned on the game.

I think Harbaugh has truly gone in and demanded what the uniforms should look like. It's refreshing to see a coach give a damn about how his team looks. Especially when other schools just hand Nike or adidas their bank info and accept random one off uniforms that look like they were designed by kindergarteners at nap time.

I meant to post this on Saturday, but that was an absolutely fantastic looking matchup.

Michigan looks terrific and I've warmed up so much to that Oregon State set. Still not a fan of the logoless home helmet, but their road set is solid.

Does anyone have a photo of both old & new pants side by side? That's the only way to get a somewhat accurate comparison is to see them both in the same setting.

Pretty sure that's just because it was overcast all day at the Big House. As it is, I didnt think the maize looked any different.

Here's the TD run from the picture in question.

Now, at Utah two weeks ago, the maize on the helmet looked REALLY athletic goldish, but that was during sundown. After the sun went down, the maize looked normal.

Call me crazy, but I like those jersey. I am glad the pants are solid. I think that is the make or break of the uniform. If the pants were patterned, then it would be way too much. I also like that they numbers, collars, stripes, and pants all match. It adds continuity to the uniform.

The only change I would make is probably changing the white to purple with a white outline.

Here is the problem the pants are patterned, too. It's really hard to tell on the white, but there are matching purple and gray pants. This is truly one awful look.

I remember seeing the uniform release photos, but I thought maybe TCU/Nike came to their senses and went with solid pants.

The white uniforms aren't patterned. The purple details on the uniforms are, though.

This. The purple and grey helmets, shirts and pants are frogskin. The white helmets, shirts and pants only have frogskin on the purple numbers/trim.

To me, Michigan yellow should have that hint of green. I also think the blue looks darker here too.

Exactly. Maize should be different than athletic gold. Here's Michigan versus Minnesota from 2004 illustrating the difference between the two shades:

Washington is wearing chrome-purple-gold on Saturday. That will be a first. Usually when they wear the chrome it is without the gold pants because they said they clashed. But they did get new gold pants last year, so maybe it will look better.
