Notre Dame Reveals One-Off Jerseys, World Explodes

So what did Adidas put together for this year's Miami-Notre Dame game at Soldier Field when the Catholics and the Criminals get together for the first time since 1990 on Oct. at Soldier Field? Full pix featuring the Fighting Leprechaun inside.

We address this Notre Dame issue today, because, although we are nowhere near South Bend, the Irish have a national following, one that certainly exists locally, or enough so that ND will be making their way to Philadelphia for a date against Temple in another two years. 

In the meantime, the independent has agreed to a new scheduling agreement with the Miami Hurricanes that will result in a home-and-home series starting in 2016. Before that kicks off, they’ll be playing at a semi-neutral locale, Chicago, this season.

I’m a uni-head. So while there are certain designs I’m very protective of, for the most part, I’m pretty open to “interpretation.” In no sport is that more the case than in college football. I love when Nike or Adidas or Under Armour put together totally outlandish jerseys for a team’s primetime, Week 1 kick-off, or when two rivals get together for an annual meeting (see in 2011: Georgia-Boise St., Michigan v. Michigan St., Maryland vs. Anybody, etc).

So, yeah, I’m one of the six people on the planet who like these. Then again, I only watch to Notre Dame to see Brian Kelly berate Tommy Rees.

Paul Lukas of Uni-Watch — the authority on these matters — is not a fan, nor does it appear is the rest of the online community, with the 60/40 helmet split bearing the brunt of the blame.

At least the star linebacker is on-board:

Man, I can’t wait to see what they work up just for Temple at the Linc in 2014! …Guys?

Alright, let ‘em have it in the comments. Just be honest — those gloves are sweet.

    I’m truly enjoying the design and layout of your site. It’s a very easy on the eyes which makes it much more pleasant for me to come here and visit more often. Did you hire out a designer to create your theme? Exceptional work! merrill http://nokiawindow.com/since-ancient-times-natural-medicine-has-become-marketing-human-body/
