I was expecting Mike Golic's face to be on one side of the helmet...:)
Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds.
Not only are those uni's brutal, it looks like that one was made at the Baby GAP.
Nail in coffin.
IF IT FEELS GOOD,YOU AIN'T DOING IT RIGHT!
Oh no.... So much for tradition and not being considered a joke..... Looks like some Div 2 uniform.
Notre Dame has officially jumped the shark.
1960 Les Paul
Ugh... horrid... oh well, I still hate em, lol
just when i couldnt dislike them anymore. THEY TOTALLY REDEEM THEMSELVES. and start a new reason.
Obviously Under Armor and Addidas are secretly having some kind of contest for which uniform is the most horrendous in all of CFB...Please for the love of God stop....just stop.
"The (All In) Family"
Notre Dame can no longer be considered a "Traditional" College FB program. That is horrid
Make it stop! I think it has become a race to see how stupid you can look on the feild.
If they had gone with the solid navy helmet, with the leprechaun on both sides... that would have been sweet.
I'm cool with it when nike adds little tweaks on our unis for one game, but wtf is notre dame thinking? Whether we like them or not, their unis are classic. No way they should change them. Unreal
]I'm thinking some fashion designer was called in to "TWEAK" the uni , had a couple of shots of tequila and got carried away.

Pray for Tuscaloosa and Roll Tide!
Looks like they painted those helmets by filling Lou Holtzs' mouth with paint and make him say "Sufferin Succotash" 10 times as fast as he can....RTR
How the mighty has fallen. Surely this doesn't have the approval of the alumni/boosters.
While I do hate ND, I did fell they had one of the best traditions in all of college football with their golden helmets. Every year, the Golden Dome at Notre Dame sheds flakes of gold from normal wear and erosion. That gold is gathered up and mixed in with the gold paint of the football helmets such that each player's helmet had an actual piece of the Golden Dome. I always thought that was a beautiful metaphor and tradition to enable the players to embrace and embody a school icon like that.
Really sad they threw that out the window with these helmets which are just atrocious. With Penn St. putting players names on the back of their jerseys and now this, more than ever I am so proud that we have stuck with and maintained our school traditions.
+1 for the Gordon Gartrelle reference.
Hideous uniforms... Seeing classics like Michigan & ND so readily overhaul their Unis makes me sad that they mess with something sacred in order to generate some fleeting interest to a bunch of 18 year old kids. Hoping this fad dies out soon...
Mind bottling...You know, when things are so crazy it gets your thoughts all trapped, like in a bottle?
Y'all ever get the feeling that designers at UA or Adidas - hell, even Nike with Oregon's - sit around the shop, and ...
(Two fat, sloppy designers sit around their monitor, empty Krystal boxes (yes, with cheese) strewn about, bong freshly lit)
Designer #1: "Wait ... watch this ... (edits here, photoshops there) ... hahahaha ... LOOK at this shit! You think they'll buy it?"
Designer #2: (stoned-like giggling) "Hell yeah they will, cuz they're CONTRACTED with us, you jackalope! Try this!" (edits more, giggles more)
Designer #1: (laughing hysterically) "NO WAY THEIR AD WILL GO FOR IT! Ain't it funny how a once-proud institution would put this stupid shit on? Notre Dame won't let a kid in that hasn't taken physics, but they'll wear THIS! IDIOTS."
(hysteric laughing, bong is knocked over)
Designer #2: "Dude!"
Designer #1: "Sorry dude. But seriously ... Parseghian would flip his shit over this."
Designer #2: "Puh-what?"
Designer #1: "Parseghian."
Designer #2: "That's good on pizza."
Designer #1: "Huh? Idiot."
Designer #2: "What? WhatIsay?"
Damn that is just plain ugly.
I think they are horrible, especially given Notre Dame's tradition, but Maryland's were worse.
Under Armour uniforms, University of Maryland
