Michigan’s season got off to a rocky start when the Wolverines found themselves on the wrong end of an Alabama blowout in their first game of the year. Fortunately, now they have a chance to redeem themselves against another SEC foe – South Carolina.
The Wolverines are scheduled to take on the Gamecocks in the Outback Bowl on Jan. 1, 2013, and they’ll look to do it while sporting brand new uniforms. Well, scratch that. They’ll do it while sporting sort of brand new uniforms. The “new” garb looks an awful lot like what Michigan wore against Alabama way back when, save for a few minor tweaks.
Despite that, the players seem happy with it.
"We enjoy wearing unique uniforms for special games, and that's what it is for us seniors and this team," said senior safety and captain Jordan Kovacs. "It will be fun going out and playing for Michigan one last time in these uniforms."
Denard Robinson co-signed that idea.
"I love them," said senior quarterback and captain Denard Robinson. "We only saw a photo of them early in the year, but I think they look even better. It will be fun, but we know we're going to Tampa to play a football game and a great team in South Carolina, so we have to stay focused."
Are the uniforms really as good as these guys are making them out to be? Decide for yourselves:

What do you think: yay or nay on the "new" uniforms? Also, do you have Michigan taking down a very iffy South Carolina squad in the Outback Bowl?
