More On The New Unis

As we've discussed here, the Boilers are switching uniforms. And much like Iowa, they're just doing it midseason. Hey, why the hell not? Nike donates money to put their swoosh on our scoreboards and their unis on our guys, so they get to make the call. Great world we live in.

Thanks to the site, Crawfordsville Area Sports Blog for the photos below. Let's take a look.

I have to say, I definitely like the black and I think the outline makes the numbers very readable, but my first thought about this one is that it reminds me of those dark Oregon jerseys. Not saying it's logical, but the dark on dark reminds me of them.

Keaton, keep your eyes front and center, son. BoilerGal has first dibs on CK.

Is it me, or should CK take a size larger in that jersey?

And here's my main complaint... in this photo and the above one, I especially notice it -- when I glance over the pictures, it looks to me like they're wearing shirts and neckties underneath the new jerseys. All-in-all, I think we can all agree we like them. And, of course, we'll need to see them in action.

Unless we're mistaken, that action will be tonight, as our Boilers host the MSU Spartans. If we're going to beat them, tonight's the night, folks.

Thanks again to Crawfordsville Area Sports Blog for the photos.

UPDATE: Special thanks to an anonymous reader who pointed out that during the press conference, it was announced that Nike would provide alternate unis in gold for next season. When next season? Who knows. Probably 2/3 of the way through the year. Said reader also provided a link letting us know that one Painter-coached squad has worn the golds and it was his first season against IU. Check this out for the visual evidence. (I really like those, by the way, especially with the black down the sides.)

I'll be spending the evening with Erin...
