Umm …. Fr. Peter, When You’re Done Fiddling We’d Really Love to Hear Your Plan. Change is igniting all around Villanova, but not on the Main Line.
HOLY CRAP. It's the first Nike Aerographics jersey I don't instantly hate. Marquette Hall, Al with his arms up, the emblem, the year, Cura Personalis. IT'S PERFECT.
Today brings the athletic department revealing the front of the 2011-12 jerseys on Twitter. The "slight update" they refer to is all in the arm area. Comparing it to Jae Crowder's jersey from last year, the dark patch on the shoulders are gone, as are the multicolored pattern on the sleeves. Stay tuned til next week, when we are promised a "major change" on the back of the jerseys.
As a tease for the Big East schedule being released tomorrow, the athletic department provided us with a sneak preview of the new shorts that MU will be wearing this season. As you can see here, it looks like the blue has shifted darker to a tone that reminds me of Maurice Lucas-era blue, and the stripes widen out towards the bottom now.
