Going Green: The History of Notre Dame's Special Jerseys, from Rockne to Today
Tradition is one of the most polarizing aspects of college football. One on hand, there are teams like Oregon, who seem to roll out a new uniform combo every week. And then there are schools like Notre Dame who seem to only stick with the iconic gold helmets and navy blue jerseys. It’s been their look for what feels like a century, and it seems like they never deviate from it.
However, every few years Notre Dame will don green jerseys, and their reception is just as mixed as you might think. Some of the Irish’s signature victories have come in green…but so have some of their most humiliating defeats. So are the green jerseys a blessing, a curse, or just a piece of fabric? Our good friend, Ryan McGee, helps us find that out.
