OT - ND: Rockne alternate uniforms

Norte Dame and Under Armour raising the bar on alternate uniforms with class:

The whole idea is that this uniform is a time-capsule of Notre Dame football from when Rockne first grew the football program into the national power that it has become today."

I like 'em.

Complete with the cleats and the helmets, it's a bit kitch, but fun. I'm assuming they can run in those things.

Odd that they all say Rockne on the back.

Meh. Back to the future?

All I keep thinking is a bunch of fairies running around in those shoes.

All the rest is cool

Might be in the minority but I think all of it is ugly. I like the idea about the shoes just not the execution.

4-8 percent worse than usual uniforms.

Wet stuff on the red stuff.

You don't like their traditional unis?

So the same as their record. Makes sense.

If you're reading the above post and thinking, "is this guy serious?!?," you can safely assume I'm not.

Heh, I figure they'd be more popular. I like them.

If you want ugly, go check Texas a&m's alternate unis that they revealed yesterday. Purple cheetahs.

I don't think it looks bad at Ll, except for the gold fairie spikes. I think they need to just make them brown spikes. The gold spikes puts it way over the top, and takes away from the traditional aspects of this uniform. Hell, why not wear the green leprechaun spikes that Joe Montana made famous instead?

I know these are all about money -- and supposedly recruiting. But the whole alternate uniform thing is so passe by now.

But UA bro!!!

Murland has a throwback this year too...

Kevin Plank and Maryland are two great reasons not to buy Under Armour.

I'm not impressed with those uniforms, but they're certainly not the worst clown suits the Maryland players have been forced to wear. They sometimes dress them like Batman villains.

To me they favor the crash test dummies...

Don't let this comment take away from the fact that Arkansas blew a 24 point 2nd half lead in the Belk Bowl.

Maryland flag is the best flag. I love those uni's.

I think you stared at the eclipse for too long.

I love the MD flag, but it is just too plastered everywhere now. And the uni combos they've come up with haven't necessarily been the best use. But, the endzones are absolutely how the UMD endzones should look. Always.

As someone who grew up in MD and cheered for the Terps through my grade school days, and even after later on when they had some respectable teams coached by the likes of Bobby Ross and Lefty Driesell, I think the Terps need to concentrate more on the product they put on the field than figuring out putrid and more putrid uniform combinations. I hate to say it, but it's almost like they lost their mind, first sending their ACC Coach of the Year packing, then deserting their ACC roots for the Big Ten, and finally bringing all this undue attention to themselves wearing the wacked-out, circus uniforms. I think their AD that orchestrated all those brilliant moves was Kevin Anderson, which makes me appreciate even more that we got a guy like Whit steering our ship!

I don't like anything about nd and this sucks too.

Where is Lawson?!

I want those cleats. The rest is nothing special.

ND can eat shit and die. But those cleats are SICK.
