As a Nebraska football fan, I dread the months of July, and August. Not because those months are painfully slow for news, the season feels light years away, or I'm already tired of predicting the team's record for the upcoming season.
I dread this time of year because I know that any day now the new Husker football alternative uniform will be released. If we've learned anything over the first three years of the "Unrivaled" series of alternate unis, it's that they are routinely bad
, mediocre at best
, and downright awful at worst
Of course, this is also the time of year where I start to get my hopes up and think "maybe this is the year that adidas knocks it out of the park and creates some spectacular." Surely, the three stripe folks - having recently lost Notre Dame and Tennessee, and reportedly being on the ropes with Michigan - will bring out their "a" game. Right?
