Nebraska to Wear Throwbacks


Shoolaces

Recommended Posts

Against UL-Lafayette on Sept. 26 it's rumored that NU will wear throwbacks (my guess is to when the streak started...early 60's). No "real" sources but I was randomly at the stadium and saw the white helmets with grey facemasks and black gothic numerals.

I know there are a few husker fans on here that might like to know...lol

I'm guessing based on helmets I saw...

It looks like the normal uniforms with less stripes and a different number font. Not sure if a non-logo fan would even pick up on that right away. Then again, I guess they can sell more jerseys if they have different types of jerseys to sell.

That post above brings up a good question. Why were stomach length jerseys so common in college football in the mid-90s?

Because the best team in the nation (Huskers) had them! :P

I don't know how different these will look than our regular set.

Are you starting at linebacker? <_<

"We" is acceptable for students and Alumni, IMO...

How is we not acceptable for fans? When talking about the Twins, I say we, but there is no way I will ever be literally a part of the team. Don't you consider your favorite team, to a degree, your team? When asking who your favorite team plays, don't you say we? Who are we playing today? I think it is very acceptable to apply that you are part of the team because fans are a huge part of teams.

Here we go again. Someone call me when it's over.

I always saw "we" when talking about the Huskers, and every other fan I know does, so I don't see the problem here. Plus we have a pretty big fan base considering this will be the 300th sellout.

Anyway, I've always wanted to see the Huskers wear throwbacks, these should look nice.

Those pictures are from the 80s, not the 90s.

Now I've seen some short jerseys, but that one is... um... wow. :blink:

I remember the running backs in the '90s having the "half-shirts" and the back panel of the shoulder pads would be flopping around. I would like to see Nebraska go back to the 'N' on the sleeve like they had with Turner Gill.

I always guessed that it was for "ventilation," less to grab onto, and the "style" of the times. BTW, I hated that look, but I never played football beyond middle school.

"We" is perfectly fine for fans to say IMO. I do it all the time. As a fan, you're a part of the team, in fact you're a very important part of the team, without the fan there would be no sport, because sport is just entertainment.
