Tradition has been the name of the game in South Bend, well that and bowl losses (they have won two of their last 12 bowl games). But adidas threw tradition out the window with Notre Dame’s new alternate football uniforms. Is adidas mocking the Nike Pro Combat uniforms that have been hotter than the sun the past couple years? Did adidas let a three year old monkey design these things?
They feature an asymmetrical helmet, the Irish’s normal navy, a yellowy garbage-y gold and a whole lot of ugly. I can’t believe the ND athletic department signed off on these. And I don’t believe the Notredame Broadcasting Company will let these on television. Is it all a bad joke? I’m not sure.
The Irish are set to wear these uniforms October 6th against Miami, FL in Soldier Field.
