New jerseys seem to be all the rage in college football today. The Texas Longhorns are not immune to the changing landscape. The Texas Longhorns will have a new home jersey for the games in the fall. Here is the link on Instagram and here is a tweet:


My Take:

I am not a huge fan of changing jerseys. In fact, I believe teams with a tradition of winning shouldn’t be changing their jersey. This change in the home jersey is subtle enough to keep recruits and current players happy about getting a new jersey look. I like the horns on the jersey. It  is a very nice look. It doesn’t take away from the whole look that has become synonymous with the Texas Longhorns football team. Credit goes to the Texas athletic department for changing the look without changing the tradition.

    I agree. This is good. The Longhorn emblem is a nice touch, but it’s pushing the limit on clutter. I’d hate to see them add some more stripes in another year, and then a star the next year, and then before you know it, we look like one of those silly schools trying too hard to make a splash with their uniform style. This is not fashion–it’s football. Bold beats fashionable every day of every week.

    Jerseys don’t win games except when The Great Earl Campbell wore the tear away jerseys for the Longhorns.
