Clothes Call: Michigan to wear 1968 throwbacks

Guess what, Big Ten fans? Michigan, which debuted this much-criticized adidas look Tuesday, will wear another special uniform Sunday, Feb. 17 vs. Penn State. Don’t worry, though, this one will be a lot easier on the eyes. Why? It’s a throwback, one the school says will look identical to the home uniform the team wore in 1968.

It remains to be seen what “identical” means. For example, will the uniform feature the super-short shorts and belt? Often times, when teams wear throwbacks, it has more of a modern feel. But sometimes, it’s the real thing.

Regardless, the throwbacks are in celebration of Crisler Center Dedication Weekend, an event that will include Michigan honoring its 2012-13 U-M Hall of Honor class at halftime.

Here’s another picture of the 1968 uniform:
