The worst Michigan alternate uniforms were from the 2013 South Carolina game. Fortunately, I think Michigan is done with alternate uniforms....

The only "alternate jersey" I want to see Michigan in is the standard home jerseys when going on the road versus OSU. I know that's not perfectly original; USC-UCLA already does it. But it'd be a good look.

 Ohio State should do the same, wear our Scarlet Home jersey when we travel Up North, after all it has been a home away from home for the Buckeyes the past few years.   :)

And before my post becomes a Buckeye piling on a Wolverine. OSU has had it's share of clunkers over the last decade.


2011


2017

A lot folks really liked those gray uniforms/helments.  I prefer the traditional in most schools wardrobes, but some have grown on me over the years of being subjected to them while watching.

Texas has never done an alt uniform, thank goodness.  I'm sure it'll happen one day, but so far we've managed to avoid it. The only unusual thing we've done in recent memory is adding the "100" logo to the helmet for a game where we honored former player Freddie Steinmark, who played on the 1969 national championship team (whose uniforms all season long featured the 100 which was celebrating the centennial of college football) and who died a year and a half afterward from bone cancer.

I really like true throwbacks.  I'm not sure if you consider MSU's white helmets as "alternates," they basically have a flipped version of their normal helmet, but I have really wanted that look for a while, and it didn't disappoint.  The one true MSU throwback they wore in 2006 I enjoyed, even though the game was a disaster.

Yeah, because it is easily the most hideous uniform I've ever seen the Badgers wear. I cannot believe Barry allowed it.

ASU did have an alternate helmet that I absolutely hated, the "flame" helmet. The concept was ok, but the final product was just bad. From the stands or on TV it looked like someone egged a bunch of plain black helmets.
I thought I settled my debts that night on the ride home
But I have still got hell to pay
