Notre Dame fans going to see the football team at Soldier Field in Chicago when the Fighting Irish play Miami in October may not recognize the home team. The Irish will wear a special uniform for the neutral-site home game. The jerseys have metallic numbers that say IRISH on the front. The gold pants have a blue stripe on the left side with a leprechaun on it. The helmet is gold on the top and the right side and blue on the left with a leprechaun. The South Bend Tribune reports (http://bit.ly/NrIUDz ) the unveiling of the uniforms Thursday led to extreme reactions on Twitter and fan message boards. One person posted: ''WE ARE! MD!'' referring to the uniforms the Terrapins wore last year patterned after that state's flag. --- Information from: South Bend Tribune, http://www.southbendtribune.com

  • I have long waited for a substantial change to the ND uniforms, but this is not it. The helmet should be GOLD (no center stripe) with a blue and green leprechaun on either side or a simple ND or Irish in script on either side of the helmet. The uniforms should be GOLD pants with (2)blue lines up the sides, the jersey blue with full color leprechauns on either shoulder (if not on helmet) or conversely ND or Irish (in script) on shoulders (if leprechaun on helmet)

Notre Dame’s uniforms for the Miami game are hideous (Pictures)

Notre Dame is a program with one of the richest traditions in college football. They’ve been playing football in South Bend since 1887, and they’ve been doing things a certain way since then. The Fighting Irish are all about jerseys that don’t have last names on the back, plain gold helmets with no designs, and simple uniforms with minimal color schemes. Until now. It appears...

adidas releases (hideous) alternate Notre Dame football uniforms

Tradition has been the name of the game in South Bend, well that and bowl losses (they have won two of their last 12 bowl games).  But adidas threw tradition out the window with Notre Dame’s new alternate football uniforms.  Is adidas mocking the Nike Pro Combat uniforms that have been hotter than the sun the past couple years?  Did adidas let a three year old monkey design...

Video: Adidas releases the "Shamrock Series" of Notre Dame football uniforms

As a general rule, we don’t get too much into the dynamics of college football uniform choice here at Crystal Ball Run. Sure, we’ll post our occasional commentary, but at the end of the day, the decisions made by Nike, Adidas, Under Armour and other companies aren’t ultimately about what we think; they’re about appeasing the 18-21-year-old kids that wear the...
