It appears that that Nebraska Football jersey that adidas has pimped has jumped the shark & given us a look.
So, what does it look like? Well...
What’s different? Mesh. The front of the jersey has the mesh looking numbers. They give a feel to harken back to 1997, the last National Championship year for the Huskers.

Take this picture from 1997:
... and compare it with Tommy Armstrong last year.
If the picture in the ad is to be believed, there’s a mesh figure to this year’s jersey. That being said, the pictures we’re seeing of players hyping this year doesn’t seem to be too much of a change.

Now, one thing to realize is that these promo pictures were taken a while back. So, Nebraska probably didn’t have the new uniforms yet.
Maybe adidas is still planning that throwback. But, still, it’s a kind of odd thing to look at being on sale w/o something being released yet. We’ll be back later after it drops to see how accurate they are. Also... something something pants stripes.
