On Wednesday morning, Southern Miss officially announced that it would be switching from Nike to Russell Athletic as its new athletic apparel supplier. With that announcement came a sneak peak at what the Golden Eagles will look like next season on the gridiron and the hardwood.
On the football uniforms, the yellow stripes surrounding the shoulders look pretty sharp. They’d look even better, however, if the thin line running from the armpits to the shoulder blades wasn’t there; the jersey is too cluttered because of it.
For the basketball team, Russell went with an intentionally old-school look — one that wouldn’t have looked out of place on the Golden Eagles squads that captured back-to-back Metro Conference titles in 1990 and 1991. For the year 2013 however, it’s pretty dull.
