I hope they just go back to the old numbering as well. If you're going that route, why bother with a different font for just the number? I guess I've just never liked any part of the new font. Picky, I know, but I'm getting old and I have to have something to complain about.

Save that announcement for when you need to create some good buzz or cover up a player getting in trouble or leaving.

Last year was supposed to be the bridge year (basically just getting rid of the zig-zags) with this year being the completely new uniforms. That's how I remembered it, anyway.

You're correct. From the Tweet linked at the beginning of the thread: "Kauffman added that #illini hoops uniforms will have "tweaks" this year to be announced shortly. "Full brand-new redesign" to basketball unis for 2019-20 season."
 
       
I think we should adopt a barely modernized version of the throwbacks (White and Orange saying "FIGHTING ILLINI" and Blue saying "ILLINOIS") and then wear the actual throwbacks for Braggin' Rights, a random big game night and then NCAA Tournament games.

Right, because nothing sells to today's youth like saying, you get to wear Converse All-Stars. The most un athletic shoes of all time! ;)
Don't you be dissing on CHUCK TAYLORS now. :)

And, were they comfy on the feet? If you had a choice between those and Nike air, which are you choosing?
This was the 1960's. There was no Nike. I've never worn a Nike shoe, so I can't answer your question, other than to say Converse seemed comfy at the time. I imagine shoe technology has advanced considerably since then. :)

Understood, but the op wanted them for now.
