    Something about seeing that number on a Michigan jersey.

    It took me a second to realize why they looked so weird… I don’t think the '89 team ever wore maize uniforms. I could be wrong but it had to have been a pretty rare occurence.

    If I recall correctly the Fab Five were the ones that made the maize jersey’s popular; I vaguely remember a game (maybe Duke?) where it was commented how they “dug out” the maize from storage, implying that maize was worn in the past at some point.

    I saw the t-shirt at the Nike Howell outlet and didn’t think much about it. The retro version just doesn’t seem to look right in maize.

    PLEASE SELL THE SHORTS TOO. I can’t be wearing bball jerseys around unless Poole wants to lend me some of his excess swag, but would love a pair of the shorts.
