Illinois apparently redesigned EVERY ATHLETIC JERSEY THEY HAVE, and in typical Illinois fashion, the results have been leaked to the internet.

Here's a look at the football garb:

So hey, at least Illinois will look a little sharper when they drop ten games next year.

Pretty sweet, although the block "I" suspiciously looks like the one on the Indiana helmets in the late 1970's/early 1980's in the Tim Clifford/Lee Corso years.

Headline continues:   .....same players to wear them: losses pile up.
they are pretty sweet though.

I know there's a game Saturday, and my ass will be there.

Note that the new uniforms ...as well as everything else associated with Illinois ....has completely abandoned the use of the Native American imagery for its logo.  They even have a page on the university website dedicated to explaining how the term "Illini" originated and how the question as to whether the term "Fighting Illini" originally referred to Native Americans is "open to interpretation."  I give a standing ovation to the students running point on the CYA / PC project at the university.  They've managed to come up with an explanation of their past that doesn't require them to completely abandon the use of their historic terminology with respect to athletic events but at the same time keeps the heat off the university and directs it toward the Cleveland Indians, Washington Redskins, Atlanta Braves, and FSU Seminoles of the world.

I don't know about giving a big hand to the students/ alumni.   A lot of them want to bring back Chief Illiniwek.  They have had votes for new mascots (such as Colonel Kernel and some others dealing with corn and/ or squirrels), but nothing has come to fruition.

Columbus to Pasadena: 35 hours.  We're on a road trip through the desert looking for strippers and cocaine... and Rose Bowl wins!

so a team that is embarrassingly bad gets new uniforms? They need to put that money and effort towards fielding a better team
