    Fugly.

    Michigan's unis with the "M" on the front last year? Brilliant. Beautiful.

    These? Just fugly and stupid-looking.

    Re: Nebraska alternate unis

    I hate them. Why would you take one of the most recognizable helmets in college football and paint it black?
    This has nothing to do with it being Nebraska. Sometimes, you just don't screw with history.

    Re: Nebraska alternate unis

    It guess I didn't remember black being one of Nebraska's primary colors.

    The thing of it is that it isnt about changing history. Its about the kids, its about buzz, its about a lot of things other than what people like to complain about. Its a one time wear, they are not going to be changing their enitre image.

    It's all about selling product. That's what all this alternate uniform stuff is about.


    They say country music speaks to the heart. Unfortunately, it has to go through your ears to get there.

    Black is big in the Nebraska program. The blackshirts are revered in the program. Because of this I can't believe Adidas didn't go with black shirts. They're so out of touch.


    Remember, you're unique. Just like everyone else.

    i agree that i love the old uni and would not in theory want it changed... but NU needs help with top recuirts these days.. this thing matters and makes them have something new, cool...

    They should have put the skull and cross bones of the black shirts on the helmet though...

    It's never about the kids. It's not about "buzz." It's about selling new jerseys or hats to fans. It's about money. Nobody is going to watch this game because both teams are wearing alternate uniforms. Either you're going to watch it or you're not. It's about the atheletic departments and apparel companies making more money.
