Notre Dame revealed their Shamrock Series uniforms for the November date against Boston College in Fenway Park. And as you’d expect, it sparked quite an online discussion from people who debate and discuss things like alternate uniforms.
Designed by Under Armour and overseen by Notre Dame equipment guru Ryan Grooms, the Irish will be donning all-green uniforms with a gold helmet adorned with the traditional leprechaun logo head. As you’d expect, there’s a ton of detailing—including 11 stripes for Notre Dame’s 11 national titles—and a few other flourishes.
Here are the Tweets that went wide:
And here’s the players’ reaction to seeing what they’d be wearing under the Green Monster.
(So save it if you don’t like them. It sure seems like the guys do.)
Looking closely, you can see some of the intricate detailing on the helmet, which includes a two-toned face mask and color on the leprechaun head that’s laid on top of the mirrored gold helmet. Boston College will also be wearing a throwback look, likely honoring NBC color man Doug Flutie as they turn back the clock to their Hail Mary Cotton Bowl victory.
Because we’re going all in on describing this fancy get-up, here’s running back-turned model Josh Anderson putting the uniform on today, and ND Sports Blogger Laura Thomas showing us some finer details.
Back to our regularly scheduled programming, but in short — a very nice effort for the Shamrock Series. (Be thankful you don’t have to be a UCLA fan this morning. Woof.)
