So they "immersed themselves in Clemson history" for this?
Posted: Nov 24, 2009 1:25 PM
 

Here's what the article says:
"Nike designers immersed themselves in Clemson Tigers history and lore to bring inspirational cues to the look and direction of the Nike Pro Combat uniforms. The new look is best described as “modern classic.”

Nike designers gave a nod to the Clemson look from the early 1980’s, including the undefeated National Championship team from 1981, when creating the Tigers’ Nike Pro Combat uniform."

If this is the case, then this is what the uni's should look like:

Orange and black horizontal stripes on the socks (from which we derived the nickname "Tigers" back in the day)
A picture of Frank Howard inside the helmet (since he's always on our mind)
A picture of Danny Ford over the left breast
A picture of Ken Hatfield on the butt
The image of a sabre doubling as a stripe going down the left pant leg in a nod to our military history
The cleats will be more like boots or waders in a nod to our agriculture history and background
A stamp on the back of the gloves so it looks like they just returned from a night out at Tigertown or somewhere else
Any other suggestions if this it to reflect Clemson's history?
