Ready For the Big House: Notre Dame’s Retro Uniforms Are In

By Adam Kramer   Aug. 18, 2011

On September 10th, Notre Dame and Michigan will play in the first night game ever played at the Big House. To celebrate such the occasion, each team will be wearing throwback adidas uniforms that should add further hype to an already anticipated early season showdown.

While we’ve seen mockups of these designs over the past few months, Notre Dame officially showcased these uniforms on Thursday.

Fans have a tendency to overact to uniform changes in general, even if it’s just for a single game, but I’m diggin’ these. The jerseys are simple, they certainly have the vintage feel, and it’ll add another intriguing element to a game loaded with potential story lines.

With that out of the way, you can now spend the rest of the day wondering why this mannequin thinks he’s better than you.

      A football uniform on a sexually ambiguous mannequin…yeah, that’s not really intimidating.

      Now, if they could only get back those retro players that originally wore those uiforms, ND would go undefeated for the season.

      Its an adidas uniform, but it only has 2 stripes? I don’t understand…. plus the mannequin makes it even worse
      I mean the uniform isnt that bad at all…. its simple but a good slight change up

      Heya outstanding blog! Does running a blog similar
      to this require a great deal of work? I have absolutely no understanding of coding however I had been hoping to start my own blog in the
      near future. Anyhow, if you have any suggestions or techniques for
      new blog owners please share. I understand this is off
      subject however I just needed to ask. Thank you!
