The way uniforms change nowadays, nothing is out of the question. Like, could adidas one day outfit the Michigan football team in an all-maize uniform? Possibly, although the school and company have not announced any such plans. For what it’s worth, Devin Gardner and the rest of the quarterbacks were in all-maize for Saturday’s annual spring game.

This is not exactly news, but it is interesting, especially considering the maize tops featured the “B1G” patch and nameplates. Gardner’s jersey even included his familiar Tom Harmon patch. So, for all intents and purposes, these jerseys are game ready – even if they don’t match the pants.

Again, this probably means absolutely nothing. But it is something to keep in mind, whether it be this year or in the future.

For the curious minds, Michigan quarterbacks wore orange tops last year and regular tops in 2012 and 2011, with the latter featuring pink-tinted numbers.

If Michigan does decide to go with this all maize uni, then I thk the pants have to be the same color as the jersey. The 2 shades of yellow I don’t thk really match. But if they do go with this, then it shd b with the blue pants. But then were gonna look like the w vir. uni’s. But if its for only a cpl gms. then I gs, that’s not so bad. I was hoping they would do a maize jersey. They do it for the other maj. spts. so y not ftb.
