Notre Dame’s TechFit uniforms from adidas almost work

Shamrock Series continues with alternate uniform craze

Notre Dame is the next in line I suppose. As I was reading the description for Notre Dame’s “Shamrock Series” uniform, which will be worn against Miami in Chicago’s Soldier Field this season, I was actually warming up to the idea of what Notre Dame’s alternate look was going to be this season. Classic blue jerseys, gold numbering, “IRISH” written in Celtic font…

… and a white Leprechaun on a blue section of the helmet. Wait, what?

Gallery not found. Please check your settings.

Overall I like the look, but the helmet coming in two different colors, split down the middle is somewhat reminiscent of what Maryland did last year, and that’s not a good thing. At least they avoid using the design of the flag of Indiana, or Ireland. Had this uniform been worn with a shiny golden helmet, this would have been a near flawless alternate uniform. But, adidas loses points for the helmet.

Overall though, not bad, as long as you are watching Notre Dame from the one side of the stadium and switching sides for each quarter.

What do you think?
