We absolutely hated Gonzaga’s logo uniforms the Bulldogs wore against Butler on Saturday night and now comes the real bad news: Nike has partnered with eight other schools to wear similar alternate uniforms this season.
That includes North Carolina (Jan. 26), Villanova (Jan. 30), USC (Jan. 30), Ohio State (Feb. 5), Kentucky (Feb. 12), Georgetown (Feb. 15), Duke (Feb. 16), Texas (Feb. 16). It also appears Michigan State will be wearing one sometime in the future (possible jersey below).
As we said over the weekend, these look like practice jerseys instead of game wear. And the oddest part is that Nike already tried this with nearly-identical jerseys that North Carolina trotted out for the 1999–2000 season that people hated.
It looks like history has sadly repeated itself. Grade: D
