After Michigan Athletic Director Dave Brandon said that the Alabama game would be the only game that Michigan would wear special uniforms for, the Michigan Football Twitter account unveiled these new uniforms today.Honestly, I’m not a fan, not even a little bit. I would be okay with the jerseys, since they’re basically the Alabama jerseys but with blue striping; but messing with the helmet is a strict no-go. Bringing in the matte helmet style looks absolutely terrible with the wings. Better get used to this though. I’m sure when Michigan plays Notre Dame at night next year, they will have another special uniform to unveil. Hopefully they never bring the matte-helmet look back ever again.FIRST LOOK: Helmet for 2013 @outbackbowl.

Can't say I love the unis. Actually not at all. Maize numbers are an interesting choice. Looks to me like the maize's don't all match up. I've been waiting for the day when Michigan would attempt a matte helmet. It's not bad. At least the maize isn't chromey like MSU's green or OSU's red when they played us.
