The Notre Dame basketball team will be wearing some new jerseys for the Big East and NCAA Tournaments that are ahem… interesting. Part McDonald’s Shamrock Shake, part basketball uniform, these new jerseys are sure to raise of the ire of Notre Dame fans who have freaked out over far less bold jerseys from the football team over the last few years.
Personally, I don’t mind them too much. The green socks might be a bit much, and the shorts are a bit over the top, but I can see the team and recruits loving them.
Here are a few reactions the jerseys have gotten on the UHND Twitter feed after we asked what people thought of them.
“whatever word we use that is worse than horrid.” @jeff_herr
“These snot-colored unis are final? =” @alo83
“UGLY, with a capitial U. Does anyone have sense to say NO when it comes to things like this?” @50Murf
“Tradition be damned………..” @dabsab
Here is how the office press release described them when they were introduced yesterday.
Designed for a bold on-court look the adizero uniform system is made from 60 percent recycled materials and features FORMOTION technology for comfort and maximum mobility during shooting and dribbling. The uniforms feature adidas’ quick drying Revolution 30 technology found in current NBA uniforms and ClimaCool zones which move heat and moisture away from the body to keep the jersey light and dry during heavy sweating. The super-lightweight woven short is designed for improved breathability and a closer, more comfortable fit with compression base layers.
What are your thoughts on them?
