I heard the alternatives have FIGHTING ILLINI in big letters on the front in a slightly different orange but the I's actually are replaced with 1s for real that are 1 size larger than the rest of the font to symbolize we are the best.

1LL!
1N1!
We are #1!

Apparently they will be a slimmer fit and the shoulder wonít be as wide. Shorts wonít be as long. Probably similar to what Syracuse wore this year (fit wise)

And considering the football uniforms, probably look similar to Syracuse's current uniforms, also.

This is the same jersey style all of Nikeís top programs have been wearing the past two years. Duke, Oregon, Arizona, Kentucky, Ohio State are a few of the many examples as well.

The problem with this jersey style is that now that we will finally catch up, the big boys will probably switch in a year again and then we will once again be behind in style...it matters to the recruits...and us crazy fans.

Meh. I'm admittedly an old fart, but the old farts buy gear, and this old fart won't wear anything that uses a "1" for an "I."

I don't know... the last time we were tier 1 when it came to uniforms we got silver shoulders, so I'm fine with not being on the cutting edge.

A thousand times this, plus this particular momentary trend looks terrible.

I think I know the answer to this but would anyone here but disappointed if the new jerseys were just an updated, modernized version of this set of jerseys?

I think it depends on the execution, but in principle no. I donít think it would necessarily be our strongest potential uniform, but it could be good.

Kinda? Happy memories in those, but they're not very good from an aesthetics standpoint.

Ya that's one thing I'm sure a renovated design would get rid of. Just like how the Knicks got rid of their black panels a couple years ago. The panels on the side in general are very 2000s
