The scattered Nike, B1G and USA Flag icons look sloppy and distracting to me. I'm not sure how/where to put them, but it's too much. Why do we need the flag on there?

Sew them in the same place on each uni...back of the neck on neckline in order left to right USA flag, conference, affiliation.

Yea I'm not sure why NCAABB uniforms need an American flag on them. Not trying to be unpatriotic (I love my America), but it's not like we're playing teams from other countries. We all know we're in America.

Also odd that they don't seem to be common on NCAAFB jerseys.

Incorporate them into the jersey?

Agree. If it's not the Olympics, then it's unnecessary.

Looks so crisp on Kip's shirt. Btw I believe this was taken at an Illini Pride event on campus.

I still don't understand why the I's are 1's. I really don't get it.

+1.....or should I say +I

Thatís just the font style. The Iís have a serif of sorts, as do the the Lís and N. Michigan Stateís font also has serifs. 1ís have nothing to do with it.

Well then the font is freaking worse than I thought because they look like 1ís.

Not so sure.

They sure look like the 1ís in the numbers sections and not so much like the primary or secondary typeface. Those are 1ís.

I'm not bothered by the "I or 1" debate. But it's not crazy for people to say that the I's look like 1's. Wasn't there a push at one point to accentuate the "NO1" in "1LL1NO1S" as a hidden reference to us being number one?

They aren't --- they are goofy-looking I's.

It's pretty simple. MSU got it right, and we didn't. When you add a serif or slant to the top of a simple uppercase I it now looks like the number 1. MSU knew better and left the I alone.

Shouldn't be an issue on the new uni's.

The I's look like 1's to me too. And I don't see a base on the 1's.
