Add last night to the list of complaints against Adidas. Burke, Morgan, and Stauskas all tore their jerseys during the game, to the extent that Burke and Morgan actually needed replacements. I didn't actually notice Stauskas's jersey tear, but it's mentioned in the recap. My wife did notice that Morgan's replacement jersey was torn in the final minutes, so that's at least 4 torn jerseys in one game. Ridiculous.
Has something like this ever happened before? I know it was a physical game and all, but I never even saw how the jerseys got torn. Did anyone else? Or is Adidas trying out paper jerseys?
"The University of Illinois is also in turmoil. The university sports an Interim Chancellor, an Interim Athletic Director, and an Interim Football Coach; the game will be played at Soldier Field, making this an Illini Interim Home Game."
