October 6th, versus Miami in Soldier Field. I woke up this morning, checked uni-watch, and this is what I see. These were dropped last night and I have no idea what is going on. Notre Dame is supposed to be one of the college football programs that you cannot touch. The Helmet. The Navy on gold. The green alternates. Classic all around. Sure, they can tweak a little here and a little there and pay homage to the past while selling new stuff, but this...I have no words. If Ohio State ever went with a two-tone unsymmetrical helmet just because, I would lost my shit. Everyone bags on Nike for being evil and making teams look like they represent "Team Nike" and Oregon and blah blah blah Pro Combat sucks blah blah blah, but the last 20 things adidas has done, along with the practice jerseys, has been downright deplorable.
If this is what the new uni craze has come to, I might turn into a pure-traditionalist right now. THIS is too much. Nebraska and Wisconsin, bad. THIS is too much for a program with the stature of Notre Dame, their annual 4 losses notwithstanding. Adidas is doing this by the way, not the swoosh. Here are the pictures form It's Always Sunny in Detroit via Uni-Watch. Grade: F-
