Inside of Michigan's New Jerseys Unveiled

Remember this passage from the Free Press article talking about Michigan's new adidas jerseys?
“We’re celebrating what’s special about the school,” said Mark Clinard, Adidas’ business unit director for football, baseball and motor sports. “The details are what speak to that. As we learned more at very beginning stages of partnership, we were looking at what’s special about Michigan. We put Bo Schembechler’s famous quote ‘Those Who Stay Will Be Champions’ in the hem of the authentic jersey. It’s not just about us just putting a logo on the program. We also have (silicone prints of) the 42 Big Ten championships on the inside of shoulder pad area. We can do everything with the outside of the jersey to uphold the honor and tradition. We’re putting more on the inside.”
There is now visual evidence of those additions to the jersey, thanks to MVictors:

Hopefully this section will be updated yearly.

Bo lives on...

The inseam.

Even though nobody will ever actually see this stuff, I know the first thing I'll do when I purchase the new jersey is turn it inside-out and check out the Big Ten titles on the shoulders. Pretty cool if you ask me.

Not a big fan of Adidas...I guess I'm being biased as I'll pretty much parallel Michigan sports to Nike for a long time. It'll take time to get used to.
