Some might consider the Fighting Irish hat rather plain. Not so given its great tradition.
This Saturday, the ND helmet and uniforms will sport a new look. According to the university’s website:
Notre Dame will wear retro-style adidas football uniforms this Saturday at
Paying homage to the rich football tradition of Notre Dame football, the Irish "Under the Lights" adidas uniform includes a white jersey with Kelly green lettering and two Kelly green shoulder stripes, old gold-colored pants, white socks with green stripes and white shoes. A large shamrock logo appears on the traditional gold helmet for the first time since the early 1960s. The years the Fighting Irish won National Championships are listed inside the bottom hem of the jersey.
Saturday's helmet most resembles changes adopted under former head coach Joe Kuharich (1959-62). A product of the NFL, Kuharich introduced the smaller metallic helmets worn by most college and pro teams (moved away from leather helmets). The design of the shamrock looked awkward in 1959, so it changed the next year to look more "right side up." In 1963 with interim coach Hugh Devore, the shamrock on the helmet was replaced with the individual's jersey number, and the stripes on the shoulders also were removed. It would mark the final year the numbers would be on the Notre Dame helmet.
Shamrocks and stripes and Kelly green lettering are all nice. I’d prefer a game with zero Irish turnovers.
That new look will also include a change in starting QBs, Tommy Rees over Dayne Crist.
