With 2012’s alternate uniforms in the past, finally we have something to look forward to when it comes to Husker jerseys. Today Adidas unveiled the alternate uniforms for the Nebraska Cornhuskers, and I would be lying if I said that I was not excited to see them.
Since my childhood I have wanted to see Nebraska in black. To look around Memorial Stadium in the first ever “Blackout.” To have it become “The Black Sea” instead of “The Sea of Red.” It looks like it will finally happen in September against UCLA as many have speculated it will.
I hope the University encourages fans to come out in force with their Blackshirts gear on. I know I will. I think I have more black gear than red anyways.
This will also be a home run when it comes to jersey sales. Last years alt’s appealed more to a young crowd. These black uniforms will be purchased by all. This is by far the best job Adidas has done with an alternate uniform. Go Big “Black!”
