We knew this day was coming. Once a traditional team opens up the alternate uniform door to its shoe/apparel supplier — and I’m not just talking throwbacks here — schools rarely go back.
So it wasn’t a surprise this morning when the new Nebraska alternates hit the Internet. I’ll hold off on giving these an official grade until I get some better pictures from adidas. My quick reaction: The uniform looks great, the helmet looks like a hodgepodge of parts.
But I’ll get into all of that later. For now, here is the uniform, their introductory video, and a brief overview of the reaction it’s release has spurred on Twitter:
