These uniforms nearly caused me to have a seizure a week ago.
I’m doing better a week later.
Maybe it was just a trick of the lighting, but the first pictures I saw of Nike’s Rivalry uniforms looked like they had huge swaths of silver under the arms — which meant they wouldn’t anything at all like the unis the 1954 national championship team wore. Since then, though, I’ve seen more pictures — and I’ve seen that the stuff our boys will be wearing on Saturday … um … well, they could be much, much worse.
I’m still bothered by how this worked — it sounds a little too much like the tail wagging the dog — and I don’t think the Michigan game is the right time to be screwing around with, well, anything.
But when I see the team run on the field Saturday? I’ll probably be OK.
