New football uniforms won’t be quite ready for spring game

About a week ago in one of our Q&A sessions, someone asked about the new football uniforms and when they might be unveiled. Pat Kraft, Indiana’s senior assistant athletic director for marketing, says IU is still in back and forth discussions with Adidas about style and feel and such, so the initial hope that the Hoosiers might wear them in the spring game on April 17 won’t happen. He said it’s possible that IU could unveil the jerseys that day, maybe putting a jersey on display somewhere, but there’s no way of outfitting the entire team by that point.

Speaking of the spring game, Kraft says IU’s marketing department plans on turning it up a notch for that. He said he’ll have a better idea of what that means specifically at around the beginning of April.
