I guess this boils down to taste, personally, I’m not a fan of these Nike alternate jerseys. I guess for some teams they are okay, I don’t hate them on Ganzaga for instance, but they don’t fit Carolina if you ask me. The Zags debuted the jerseys last Saturday and 11 other programs will wear them at some point this season, including North Carolina who will sport them on February 9th against Miami.
I like the NC symbol but it doesn’t fit on the front of the jersey, the traditional North Carolina needs to be across the chest of the jersey in my opinion. UNC tried this before, and it failed miserably resulting in the student body and alumni associations demanding that the school switch back to the traditional jerseys which they obviously did.
I like the idea of alternate uniforms, just not these, if we’re going with alternates, I like the gray ones with Carolina spelled out in Carolina blue across the chest. These just don’t seem to fit, a giant NC logo just doesn’t do it for me, I want to see something spelled out on the front maybe I’m a traditionalist, or just an old man that doesn’t like change either way, I think Nike missed with these jerseys.
