You must have seen it by now.
The Chris Ash Tweet with the new black uniforms.
No? Our pleasure.....
Uhh, okay, maybe you didn’t see it.
Trust me, it’s there and it’s really pretty good.
You can read the numbers! Chain mail design on the sleeves. And it looks like the new secondary mark, the knight head, is on the helmet.
What more do you need to see?
When the new Nike uniforms were unveiled at the R Awards in the spring, it was made known that eventually every sport would get new stuff. Football, basketball, and women’s soccer were on deck first. But there was no mention of a “blackout” uniform for the gridiron. And a few people were concerned, even upset, about that.
So, is this the end of the black-outs? There is no mention of a black uniform.
There was a report.....
that there is a black option. That wasn’t shown. Somewhere it stated it will appear for the first time when they come out of the tunnel that night.
Tune in for the Michigan game. It’s at night and black works best at night. Of course Hobbs may want to show Scarlet on national TV so we’ll have to wait and see.
The big question, of course, is when do you wear them? Based on his prior comments, Ash seems to be a traditionalist in terms of uniforms - I’m with ya, Chris - and it sounds as if he will wear red - RED - at home and white on the road. And the Dark Knight uniform on a - A, one, not a lot - special occasion.
We have two significant night games at home: Michigan and Penn State. My sense is they wear the Dark Knight at only one of those games. But which?
You make the call in the comments.
