don't feed the troll
and... i like them? I think I like them.
don't feed the troll
...pretend I never saw that.
would like to see a very slight tweak to our helmets... Make the Blue Matte, with gloss Maize stripes! Now that would be very sweet! We got wings, and they'd pop if there were a Matte finish to the Blue!
You shouldn't be giving those assholes at Adidas any new ideas like this....
I understand your intentions, and I know you were just trying to illustrate the obsurdity, but you should be arrested for crapping on our "flag" like that.
Wow, GA Tech like unis with TCU like helmets (1/2 anyway). And to top it off, leprechaun gloves! This is too good to be true. Is this another one in the BHGP series?
Adidas got into college football at the end of the 90s. By 2003, the schools they sponsored all had one thing in common: Shocking collapses of form from their glory days.
These are some of the teams that endured the Adidas curse in the first decade of the 21st century:
There are others. When Michigan signed with Adidas, this is what I was afraid of... and it's exactly what happened.
Now, Adidas is trying to get "creative" with its uniform designs. This Notre Dame abomination is about the worst new uniform I have ever seen, given Notre Dame's "tradition."
It is a weird trend, but in fairness, a lot of those schools (like ND and Texas A&M) had started their decline before they signed with Adidas. Maybe their decline made them more affordable for Adidas to sign.
Conversely, Wisconsin has emerged as an annual Big Ten power under Adidas, so not everyone gets jinxed. (Is Northwestern really "cursed", also? If anything, they seem more consistent now than ever before.)
Pro Combat uniforms.
Arkansas. In fact I think Mallett blamed his draft day demise on the uniforms.
Arizona State wears Nike.
embrassing is the perfect way to summarize these costumes
Can't we just take a break from these alternate uniforms for a little bit. Please make it stop!
Dammit. Somebody post that video. Fast. Dammit.
Is there such a thing as "team-uniform malpractice"? Somebody called this debacle "scary." That was how I felt. This looks like a trip to the Casual Sportswear corner at TJ Maxx. On acid.
Is it just me or do other people pronounce the bass in Freakbass like the fish? It makes the whole thing even funnier to me.
I just assumed it was pronounced that way. I didn't even think of the other way until you mentioned it.
Oh my. Who designs this Adidas stuff?
the designers at Nike
Who comes up with these uniforms? I want that guys job.
... is a German guy named Dieter:
well, the jersey itself isn't bad. the pants are fairly bad and the helmet ruins any chance of this uni being decent.
If there was one thing Notre Dame had that was superior to most every other team in the country, it was their helmet.
Now that's gone, too. Seriously, what does Notre Dame have left?
NBC and those days maybe numbered.
The St. Louis Rams were so generous to offer up their practice unis for ND. Sloppy seconds is almost always a bad idea
Where are the three holes in the helmet to put your fingers? As comical as the game is likely to be between two has-been powers, this uniform will be even more hilarious.
I don't look at those uniforms and think "Notre Dame." I thought at first that was Georgia Tech, or Navy.
"Iowa Barnstormers" or "Denver Gold."
Notre Dame could have the coolest uniforms in the Arena Football League.
I swear I've seen some shit in my life, but sweet baby Jesus those are awful.
sweet Touchdown Jesus, they are awful.
Someone needs to stop the madness with these alternate uniforms already. Some look cool, I guess but it seems an overwhelming majority of them just look sad.
If you take the helmet away, they resemble Pitt's jerseys.
That shade of gold resembles the Dan Marino era Pitt helmet.
The not-even-half-and-half helmet with that godawful leprechaun... Just as "We are ND" outlclasses all other attempts at horrible hype videos, this dreadful costume somehow makes the new Nebraska and UW looks seem classy and unoffensive.
Somebody got paid to design that jersey.
I am really starting to feel sorry for the fan base. Nothing is going right for ND. The one thing they had...tradition...is even being taken away. I like Adidas...but hate those uni's!!
Want some good reading? Grab some popcorn:
Classic. Hard to pick a favorite comment, but this is in the top 5:
"If you are going to go out in public dressed like that you had better win, and win big. So big that no one would dare make fun of you.
It is the uniform sartorial equivalent of naming your son Sue.
But I am at the point of not caring."
I think they stole those socks out of my 10 yr old daughter's underwear drawer.
we are wearing almost those exact same socks vs Alabama this year.
I was just going to say, even after having put our Alabama jerseys out of mind, that I can almost guarantee we'll wear those same socks at least once this year. Nebraska and Wisconsin are also wearing them, I believe.
Well, on the plus side, maybe my daughter will be more interested in watching if they are wearing tween knee socks this year.
The socks are the ONLY great thing about that uni!
I tried to think of something more creative, but it was impossible to make those jerseys look even worse. So I did this instead.
I heard he actually wrote that on the wall so people would remember him after his ass gets canned.
And your i is backward.
...they didn't compromise tradition by putting names on the jerseys. So they've got that going for them.
