During the first half of Saturdays game I remember complaining out loud that the D-line was getting held quite often but to no avail to the referrees. I DVR'd the game and always rewatch on Mondays and I just realized that the entire D-line switched jersey's to last years away jerseys. This years jerseys are definitely more form fitting and much tighter than the past couple of years. I hadn't noticed this happening at all in any of the previous games and also took note that none of the other defensive players made this jersey switch. Am I just crazy or do you all think that this was done to try and draw more holding penalties on the Northwestern O-line? I suspect and it looks as though the old jersey's are easier to grab and would be easier for an official to see a hold.
Maybe an out of the ballpark thought, but just an observation and wanted to see if anybody else noticed it too.
