I love them for one game, but as ThotDoc mentioned the skinny big N is hideous!
I would give my life for anyone one of them as i would my own family. -Pops
It doesn’t matter if the glass is half full or half empty. What matters is you have a glass that has something in it. Some people have no glass, or have a glass with nothing in it. So appreciate all that is in your life and quit questioning whether your glass in half full or half empty.
Hideous is right !! Makes us look like we're trying to emulate Texas Tech, and the video doesn't even highlight what should be the iconic symbol of Husker football .............. The red "N" on the helmet.
I'm a traditionalist when it comes to Husker uni's, yet I do like the black helmet with the red N. The skinny big N on the front and the striped socks are a bit much though.
I am also a traditionalist. Don't understand the need to alternatives. But when you mentioned the "striped" socks, I cringed, thinking of the old Denver Bronco wide vertical brown and yellow socks. These are pretty understated. I can live with them for one game, I guess.

I have been all on board for having a cool alt uniform once a year. That however is really bad. Almost all of the fan creations I have seen have been better than that. Red tops and bottoms is always bad. Giant N on the chest is silly.
I realize that I am a young wipper snapper (36 yrs young), but if my memory is correct Red on Red has never been kind to me. If I am correct we have attempted the Red on Red motif 4 times and all 4 times resulted in a mark in the "L" column. Also, if my memory is correct, they were some ugly losses... not necessairly on the scoreboard, but the way our kids played in those games was very uncharacteristic of how they typically played the other games during the season. Can someone validate?
FWIW, I kind of like the uniforms. It will be kind of weird, when I get a hold of one of these game used jerseys and helmets, to see it displayed next to the rest of my vast collection in my Husker ManCave. BTW, if there is anyone in or near Youngstown, OH who would like to get together for our games please let me know. I would like to start a Youngstown Huskers group!!!
I don't mind them for one game. I will venture a guess and say they will sell a ton of gear and the HS age kids and recruits will really like them. And as long as we win the game I don't care what we are wearing.
