I think the knee jerk reaction to new uniforms now is that they are bad, hideous, awful. I am very glad we didn't go full out crazy with the adidas unis worn by the likes of ND, UCLA, Louisville, etc. but.... I kind of like these. I like the bigger M on the shorts, I I like the Maize around the neck, and I don't mind the variation in color on the shorts. They could have easily made shorts much worse. To be fair, I do not know why the names are white on the back. Also, I wish Adidas could have done something different than parade out all of their teams with "Rise to the Occasion" warmups.
In this day and age, is it possible to make a jersey the majority of people would agree is "cool"? I respect the traditionalists and tend to be one myself, but I do not think the jerseys are that bad. Go Blue!
