If that’s not a 10/10 it’s a 9.9. Fresh. Sharp. Classic. Not too much. Not too little. More importantly, it’s a hell of a way to honor our 1969 National Championship team’s 50th anniversary.
My only complaint is choosing to bust them out this weekend on such a lowly opponent in Kansas. It would have been incredible if we wore them against LSU. Or really shocked everyone and wore them in the Red River Shootout.
Could it have brought the team extra motivation and maybe even a little luck to help win either of those games? With how fire these unis look, it’s hard to not think so.
