Ted Kluck goes on a tear about the throw-back uniforms that Nebraska and Wisconsin were sporting Saturday night. As usual, he puts things in a way that only Ted Kluck can. He writes:
I know there are sadder things in the world than the state of college football uniforms. I know that there is world hunger, human trafficking, and those Sarah McLachlan dog-rescue commercials. All of those things are sadder than Nebraska’s alternate uniform. But still, perhaps there are other ways for schools to show that they have such an ungodly amount of money that they don’t know what to do with all of it. I’ve included a few ideas below:
I’m not nearly as keyed-up about it as Kluck is, but still I wonder. Why does Nebraska need a throw-back uniform? Their regular uniforms already look retro enough. Unless they want to dispense with facemasks and wear leather helmets, I don’t think they need to make their uniforms look more antiquey than they already do. Just my two cents.
