Nebraska to wear black uniforms? Retro? Your guesses are now allowed

Nebraska will wear an alternate uniform in 2012. Will it be black, or something more traditional? Image source: TheJonGates.com.

Nebraska has one of the best uniforms in college football, as evidenced by their run to the Final Four in Crystal Ball Run’s Uniform Madness (which determined the top uniform, rather than our own bracket here). Today Nebraska athletic director Tom Osborne confirmed that the Huskers will wear an alternate uniform for one game in 2012, but stated that it will not be outlandish.

From AP sports writer Eric Olson, via The Republic in Indiana.

Nebraska plans to wear an alternate uniform for one home football game this season, though athletic director Tom Osborne says the design won’t diverge much from the Cornhuskers’ traditional look.

Osborne said Monday the design has not been finalized. He couldn’t offer any details other than that the uniforms would be “futuristic” but “not outlandish.”

Osborne said adidas, the Huskers’ apparel and footwear provider since 1995, proposed changing the color of the helmets. Osborne said the white helmet with the iconic red “N” would not be touched.

If you have been following along with us, you know what we would advise against.

  1. No black helmets.
  2. No black uniforms, from head to toe.

Some from Nebraska may say otherwise, and given the initial report from Osborne it seems that anything with black might be a stretch.

What would you like to see Nebraska do with their uniforms?
