Texas A&M will be joining the many college programs that will sport a new uniform in season. Addidas announced today that the Aggies will wear these cool looking things against Missouri on Saturday.
Unlike TCU or Oregon's alternate look that is radically different than its regular unis, this Aggie version looks pretty much the same.
The difference is that outfits are made of something called TECHFIT, that supposedly helps players be lighter and run faster. That's right, it's no longer a matter of working out or dieting but clothing.
My initial reaction is three-fold:
1. Why are so many of these new unis insisting on this uber-skin tight look? A RB, DB, OL and WR can easily pull this off. What about the offensive lineman; they have feelings, too.
2. In addition to Texas A&M, six other adidas schools will debut the new TECHFIT jerseys this season including Michigan, Notre Dame, Cincinnati, Louisville, UCLA and Tennessee.
The common thread between these seven schools other than the threads?
None of these teams is ranked in the AP Top 25.
3. Why didn't Addidas pay me royalties after using my phyiscal likeness for this shot? The next phone call is to a lawyer.
