Virginia coach Mike London is leading a turnaround in Charlottesville. And the Cavaliers are literally looking good in the process, too.
For its Sept. 29 home game against Louisiana Tech, Virginia will sport retro jerseys worn by the 1968 team. The Cavs’ blue-and-orange color scheme remains, and we like the badge-like, Virginia “V” positioned below the jersey’s neck.
What really makes this throwback look work are the helmets. The same aforementioned “Badge V” is on each side, and the copper-ish tint to the orange on the lid almost makes it look like the helmets have been sitting in an equipment closet for 40-plus years. A vertical blue stripe down the middle of the lid enhances its retro appearance.
Wah-hoo-wah! Grade: A
