Best uniform news we have gotten in a long time. I wonder, if these orange ‘89 throwbacks might be our main orange unis (would be great news), and if these orange throwbacks May end up being our sole ‘89 set while another white throwback may replace our previous throwback at some point in the near future. That would be my guess.

Put those on white and blue next year too. Rebranded I on the shorts and it's all good leave the rebrand front to the media guide.

Is there any reason to NOT do this? I don't see how anyone could think they could choose better Illini jerseys than these.

Brand consistency and the possibility that maybe, just maybe, we could have our cake and eat it too, working in the current branding to that style.

But these throwbacks are very good and work perfectly well in modern times.
 
It's so simple. Make the 'throwback' Fighting Illini whites and oranges (and, do a blue version), the everyday unis.

And, if you want to do a modern interpretation- make that the alternate.

You can have brand consistency and still have the 89 uniforms as the current set. All using the updated block I. All the same shade of orange and navy (sad that wasn'tthe case before) use the font on the baseline, and all publications.

Odds we wear these prior to the bobblehead giveaways? Seems like these jersey are primed to be exclusively for those games. Hope thats not the case. Would love these against mizzou.
 
We really need to do something to spice up that Block I or just do away with it. It looks so weak and amateur and boring. I get using a Block I for some things and I understand it's usefulness but it consistently looks drab and cartoonish on everything. It needs some major tweaking or some design alternative in its spot.
I really prefer the circle around the block I.
