A couple weeks ago, Notre Dame was saddled with the tag of having a high school-level defense, speed-wise. Can 30 percent lighter uniforms make up the difference?
Notre Dame and adidas announced Monday that the Irish will wear new TECHFIT jerseys beginning this Saturday against Western Michigan, outfits that according to a press release feature "a ground-breaking compression fit" and weight "30 percent lighter than standard football jerseys."
As for the technicalities of the redesign, the release described them as such: "A streamlined fit, new fabric, reduced seams and an ultra-lightweight name and numbering system. In addition, the Notre Dame TECHFIT jersey keeps players cool with integrated ventilation zones and moisture management fabric."
Six other adidas schools will debut the new TECHFIT jerseys this month: Michigan, Louisville, Cincinnati, Texas A&M, UCLA and Tennessee.
