The exciting brand new uniforms for Notre Dame are... tah-duh... gold helmets, navy jerseys and tan pants. That's right. Don't mess with a successful brand image.
If however, you are an underperforming football program like Cincinnati, then you go with an all-black uniform with a black helmet. Now you will look so "now" and hip and hot that all those 4-star recruits that you would get only in your dreams will come flooding in.
What approach do you prefer? Notre Dame or Cincinnati?
