If you’re a fan of traditional college football uniforms … look away. The Michigan Wolverines released Tuesday the first photos of special uniforms and an updated helmet that they’ll wear for the Jan. 1, 2013 Outback Bowl against South Carolina. FIRST LOOK: Special Uniform for 2013 @outbackbowl twitter.com/umichfootball/… — Michigan Football (@umichfootball) December 18, 2012 FIRST LOOK: Helmet for 2013 @outbackbowl. Navy matte finish & traditional maize wings twitter.com/umichfootball/… — Michigan Football (@umichfootball) December 18, 2012 Yep, maize pants. Sam Webb of the Detroit News and GoBlueWolverine.com added a second shot of the helmet: Another #michigan helmet shot – outside close-up twitter.com/SamWebb77/stat… — Sam Webb (@SamWebb77) December 18, 2012 Aside from the new finish, the helmets look pretty much the same, though Michigan fans have been opposed to any changes at all to the famous winged look. The uniforms, on the other hand, represent a major variation from the old-school Michigan jersey — though the Wolverines sported new uniforms for the Cowboy Classic and last year’s Under the Lights game against Notre Dame.
