As we’ve wondered here before, how much do players and potential recruits care about the uniforms they wear?
Well, if the reaction of the Ohio Bobcats to their new threads is any indication, players care a lot. And by a lot, we mean an incredible amount.
Check out the video below of the Bobcats watching a video in which their new black jerseys were revealed – we have to admit, the jersey video is pretty sweet. The players reacted as teams do when they see their team placed up on the screen during the NCAA Tournament Selection Show – then multiply that by 10.
The screeching Bobcats hugged each other, jumped, screamed, celebrated and then made a mad dash to the locker room, where they basked in the glow of their new jerseys as if it was a collective jug of water in the middle of the desert.
“Every week, someone is like … maybe this is the week we get black jerseys,” tight end Jordan Thompson said.
While another player called his father like he had just gotten engaged, all we can do is shake our head and hope the Bobcats get as excited for actually playing the games as they do for wearing the jerseys during them. The 3-0 Bobcats play at Rutgers tomorrow.
