So, look what Miami is getting in the Notre Dame game. Not just The Irish, but the Irish with attitude -- compliments of adidas.
The Hurricanes got a dose of uniform wackiness at Maryland last season. I think I was the only person on the planet who liked those bizarre Maryland duds.
Here's the statement Notre Dame coach Brian Kelly made about the unis:
“The Shamrock Series is a great opportunity for our football program to play in an exciting venue located in an area with so many Notre Dame fans,” Kelly said. “This year’s game at Soldier Field will be part of an incredible weekend for the University in Chicago and will be a great experience for our team. The players absolutely love the uniforms designed by adidas for this game and they will help make it a memorable night.”
By the way, note that Kelly said "in an area with so many Notre Dame fans.''
Soldier Field is definitely NOT a neutral site for this game. (I changed that line for those of you who thought I even considered that Soldier Field is neutral.)
Maybe the uniforms will help give the Hurricanes an edge.
UM will be wearing its traditional unis, I'm sure to Al Golden's delight.
Addendum: Did you like when MIami wore its Pro Combat unis? Or do you prefer traditional?
