OT: Notre Dame throwbacks for Navy game

These are at least interesting. Looking forward to seeing what they come up with when their new coach opens his tenure next season against Michigan.

These are pretty sweet.  Way better than the disaster throwbacks they trotted out recently.  The problem with throwbacks for us is pretty much any uniform that isn't our standard uniform is a downgrade, but if we did do throwbacks I'd love that same leather helmet style with the winged helmet.  Another option I think would be amazing is a "black and white" version of our uniforms to  honor days of yore when all recorded images of our team were in black and white.  A Raiders-esque black and silver/white uniform, with a black helmet and silver/white wings would be pretty badass for a throwback.

I think these are really good, actually. Old style shoes and helmet styling. Good way to honor Notre Dame's ample history.

And honoring their history is important, because their present is pretty awful. Their uniforms will bring the school honor; the play on the field this season is likely to do the opposite.

because they aren't historical uniforms. they are marketed as "heritage" uniforms as they reference pieces of their football history. shoes are a cool concept. the rest are whatever.

I know this board will hate (1) alternate uniforms and (2) Notre Dame, but I think these are completely awesome.  I doubt I'll watch the Navy game, but I can't wait to see them in action in photos or highlights.

I have to admit I thought I would hate them, basically because it's ND. But, I have to admit I think they are pretty cool and do have a real throwback look to them.

Okay, who here works at Under Armour? We need to Rick Roll them, it would be the greatest thing ever if the jerseys actually showed up with "Never gonna give you up, never gonna let you down" printed.

 

We've got to have someone, right?

I think they're pretty cool, especially compared to a lot of other throwbacks. They're part Notre Dame tradition and part Friday night minor league baseball team gimmick uniforms. I like it.

Saw them and liked them more than I expected. Can't wait to see what they will wear for Brian Kelly's last game against us this year.

No matter how bad they do, I don't think he will get fired this year, but then a beatdown at the hands of Michigan in South Bend will make them have no choice. He'll get fired Sunday morning.
