All this marketing buildup for some football threads.
The Hurricanes will unveil their new Nike-inspired uniforms today at the spring game.
Time of liftoff: 5 p.m. on the field.
Personally, I think it's fun. And I really like looking at uniforms in all sports, like I love all kinds of art. Sometimes it's not my taste, but I still appreciate it.
I like colorful things, but I also think one color unis are cool, too. I do know that the current Canes would freak out (in a good way) over some type of all-black uni -- though I'm told there won't be a black version. I'm not sure about anything until I see what it looks like.
I believe there will be a few -- four? -- uniform variations involving orange, white, "smoke'' (Nike Anthracite) and green. I have not seen anything first-hand. So I guess we'll all know for sure at 5. I can neither confirm nor deny my info until we all see it together.
The helmet is another object of curiosity. What has, if anything, Nike done with the iconic U?
I don't think green and orange are especially flattering together, but they do shout out the brand with gusto -- and that's a good thing if you're a proud fan.
So, just for fun, if you're game, please let us know what your dream uniform would look like today at 5 p.m.
Keep it clean, or we'll shut it down.
See you later!
