So it seems that there is a new football uniform set in the works, to be delivered for the 2018 season I believe. The biggest visible change it seems would be the colors of the numbers. Blue numbers on orange, orange numbers on blue, and maybe blue on white. The jersey numbers might also be slanted and closer to the modern Illinois font rather than the current rounder numbers. It seemed that the Shield would be off of the collar. I've also heard that Lovie isn't a huge fan of the shield, and likes to keep it simple with the I.

Possible Sneak peak here in the thumbnail for this article. Don't need to read the article.

It's hard without seeing it, but based on your description I am unenthused about each and every one of those changes.

Can't see the image you're referring to. Care to post a screenshot?

I hope not, block numerals would be preferrable.

I can't believe anyone likes the shield...except those who were paid to come up with it.

I still like it as long as it's not the main focal point of a uniform or design. #teamshield

Athlon Sports ranks Illinois Uniforms as the third best in the BIG behind Michigan and Penn State. Indiana took the bottom spot.

I know i'm beating a dead horse here, but the only thing they need to change is the shade of orange on those helmets. The uniforms are near perfection.

Agreed, they look really sharp. The football rebrand was miles better than basketball imho

Agreed - the orange helmets are a big fail - go with illini orange, not rust orange, and if you want special event helmet go with chrome illini orange
