Illinois Football Uniforms

I apologize if this has already been asked and answered but does anyone know why Nike does not sell Illinois apparel like they sell Iowa, Michigan State or Oregon State apparel on Nike Store?

Sideline Impact Hoodie

Would've loved to get the Illinois Nike Sideline Impact Hoodie

Also, does anyone know when the new football year apparel drop?

most likely because NO ONE has asked about getting any Illini stuff from Nike the past 4 years .
Sad , as I can see them not putting our stuff out in the front window on the Michigan Ave store in Chicago, but to not even think we are worth the band width is well, tough

I have always wondered why Nike didn't sell very much Illini stuff. It's our official brand, yet searching Illini on their website only yields 3 results.

I think teams have the best jerseys when they take inspiration from previous generations, and add a few new features to modernize it. That being said here is my attempt. 80's helmet, 90's pants, current or late 00's numbers, with a "new ;)" little detailing on the sleeves. What do we think? A TheFlyingIllini exclusive

Best design ever

Any whispers on whether we are getting new uniforms anytime soon? I think I was down in Champaign the summer of 2017, and saw the mockups for what would become our new uniform set in the 2018 season. So I guess it does take time for Nike to hook us up with a new look, but maybe the new designs are already out there.

Our last uniform set lasted for four seasons, I believe. So maybe Bielema comes in and approves a new look to debut in the 2022 season?

Id be very surprised if there was any uniform change this year or anytime soon

I thought our pre-Syracuse uniforms we the best in a super long time. I don't think we could be any more boring, uninspiring, and in-original than we have now. My Syracuse friend reminds me all the time.
But our jerseys look better than Syracuse, and since when do they own the colors orange and blue?! Also the galloping ghost uni's are slick and an amazing tribute to the greatest player of all time.

I've seen some merchandise with the curved illini logo lately. I doubt anything new will come this season, but maybe we see thIs next season? It does seem that each new coaching regime comes with uniform changes.

Beilema seems to be the kind of guy who wants something established that will stick, not looking for the next hot trend. And I’m totally on board with that. I know people say that it matters to the kids, but I’m guessing a winning tradition and good football is what will bring in recruits year after year.

IMO they are exactly like the previous gen Syracuse, which I never liked when they wore them. Obvioulsy, no one owns any color - no sure how that relates to us (Nike) having hand me downs. Personally I prefer cool looking uniforms over any tribute, and I’m old enough to be nostalgic.

Most neutrals I watch games with always compliment our jerseys, maybe it's the Chicago Bears bias, but the general consensus among my neutral friends are that our Orange-Blue-Orange jerseys look really good.
