As previously reported, the Texas men's basketball team will don black jerseys on Saturday against Duke. The jerseys are part of the season long celebration of 100 years of Texas men's basketball. Yesterday, Coach Rick Barnes stated, "If we lose, I'll blame Nike. If we win, I'm gonna keep using it."
I love them. I wish Nike and the University had kept the new jerseys a secret. Imagine how cool it would have been to see the Horns pull off their warm-ups and get a whole new look.
The players seem to love them too. Aldridge was talking about wearing black shoes and black socks to go with his new black jersey. Will the fans like them as much?
