The Notre Dame Retro Uniform

Well Adidas, hosting UM, and Notre Dame rolled out there respective “old time,” “throwback,” or “retro” football uniforms for the much ballyhooed night game on September 10th in Ann Arbor.  As long as the IRISH pound those Skunkbears I could care less if, they were wearing pink tights and spiked heels.

Still it appears to be a gimmick to make $$$.  We talked about The Subtle New Marketing of Notre Dame Football back on April 2nd.  Adidas will of course make a bundle of money out of the Notre Dame Bookstore at $80 a pop for the jersey.  Some say it will help recruiting, but of course they say anything can help recruiting.  Thank goodness we are the visitors if that is what Adidas and Notre Dame thought would be cool retro uniforms.  If we were home team they probably would have rolled out some fluorescent green monstrosity.  At least we’re not going to be wearing leather helmets although the shamrock looks pretty tacky on our gold ones. 

But of course, the white shoes and green laces are just as bad.  Shouldn’t it be black leather high-tops?

Have not figured out if the jersey is supposed to be tucked in or not.

Oh well, it’s only for one game.  Hope the boys don’t autograph their game jerseys and try to sell them.
