Every now and then, as discussion of Iowa wearing alternate uniforms comes up, there's talk about Iowa wearing all-gold uniforms. My initial reaction to that is always "no;" my reasoned, thoughtful reaction to that is always "hell no." While all-gold basketball uniforms can look quite sharp, all-gold (yellow) football uniforms just... don't.
So I would like to thank Michigan for providing the latest example to support my stance. Big Blue (er...) will be sporting all-yellow (sorry, "all-maize") uniforms this weekend for their season opener against Florida. The Gators, for their part, will be wearing all-blue uniforms, giving this game a "Color Rush" feel -- because everyone loved that gimmick in the NFL the last few years...
So... Saturday's Michigan vs. Florida game is going to be a "color rush" game. pic.twitter.com/SksdA8qnU5

Here are a few more looks at Michigan's all-yellow getup:

Of course, we're still waiting to see what Iowa's own alternate uniforms will look like this fall; fingers crossed Iowa won't be joining Michigan in banana-hued insanity.
