As we speculated over the weekend, Adidas has tweeted out photos of the alternative uniforms Nebraska will wear for this year's UCLA game.

I'm probably not the best choice to be writing about alternate uniforms - I don't care about this kind of stuff a whole lot. I guess if the "kids" like them, then maybe I should just shut up.
My real comments are as follows:
Will they make us tackle better? Will they make us run faster? Will they make the offensive line block better, particularly when we're pulling a guard? If not, THEN WHO GIVES A SHIT.
But, since comments are required, here are some others:
- Oh, look, we have a black shirt. Everyone poop!
- The numbers are large. At least they won't have that problem this year.
- Are the tattoos optional?
- WHERE'S THE CAPE?
- And last, Andy Staples probably had the best comment on twitter:
Crazy to think that Nebraska finally busts out black jerseys for a game someone will probably win 55-48.— Andy Staples (@Andy_Staples) June 25, 2013
Sad, but true.
Update - there's a video so you can squeal even more!!!!
