these are sweet, with the pads & helmets. The whole look is cool.
Alternate Jersey Release Open Thread
i love how everyone was crying about them just 20 minutes ago.. and now everyone all of a sudden likes them. i'll be interested to see how brian responds to seeing the finished product, since he was such a hater of them initially.
Yea, amazing how some people can let a little thing like "seeing the jerseys being worn by the players" influence their opinion. Morons.
Not as bad as I thought they would be, but I still think they look pretty lame/tacky
"unique articles of apparel...."
makes it look good. I still wont buy one. I cant wait to see the hats they come up with though to match the 'legacy" theme.
Block M bowler hats.
at least on the players. Now let's beat the shamrocks off the helmets of ND (assuming that does end up being their look).
I like it actually.
"Player reaction to jerseys"
"My arms look good."
We don't have an idiotic shamrock on our helmet.
And the facemasks. But Goddamnit the stripes.
I am a big traditionalist, but these aren't that bad. Be better just regular unis though - w/o adidas logo on front.
Helmets kill our current ones, love em.
My 5-year old daughter is now in love with Dernard.
Love em! Especially the gray facemasks
Those are awful... They are not too bad... Pretty good in fact... I like it... They are freaking awesome!... I have no choice but to buy one.
Maize & Blue forever my friends.
I love them and honestly I like ND's also. It's gonna look sweet for one game.
Unis aren't as bad as the dreaded leak, but ND wins the uniform round. Ours are choke-down-able, theirs are pretty sweet.
Can't help but think the leak was intentional so as to set the bar low. Bidness folk may treat their souls like commodities, but they have the politics of soulessness down pat.
Adidas missed an opportunity to design three stripes on the shoulders instead of four stripes. They missed an opportunity to design three stripes on the ND jerseys as well.
I would like it more if the block M was the bigger modern version and didnt have the stitching inside it
Love the gray facemasks and they look pretty good on the players. I would love to have them as an alternate in NCAA 12 but I know that won't happen.
Kinda look like a soccer jersey without pads but I def. think they look sharp with pads and running over ND players haha Go Blue!!!
Looks nice. Like the M in the middle
Those things r gonna look SICK under the lights!!!
Dressed you up for her pretend tea party with a table full of her dolls. Either that or when your girlfriend offers to design your beer league softball jerseys. You can't say no, but you ain't gonna like it.
I actually think with pads they look awesome. I would have loved to seen the sleeves/shoulders winged like the helmets, but not as bad as the one for sale.
This is good!
I'm trying my best to like these..but I just can't. These are honestly one step ahead of OSU's kethcupbottle/usedtampon jerseys from last season. DB should have just stuck with the usual gameday jerseys or gone with a maize top (I know, I know go ahead and make your comment). But really, a futuristic maize uniform under the lights would look awesome.
Honestly I think these look good. They will probably look cool on the field as the yellow stripes become soaked with the blood of the Irish. Perhaps we can call them Oliver Cromwells / Old Ironsides?
But... I don't like the concept. Why are we following the likes of petty upstarts? Because it's not an authentic throwback, it has no meaning beyond a mere cash-generating gimmick. Are we so desperate for a buck?
I see no need for rebellion just yet ... but when they roll out a maize turf field and a robo-wolverine in a monster-truck with lazer-eyes that shoots sparks out of its ass and plays Guns n Roses non-stop ... then we will have gone too far!
Do we have "special" gloves we'll be wearing for the ND game?
