Where did the Heels go?



When it rains, it pours.  UNC unveiled another new uniform this week that they will wear on Veterans Day… blue camo!  Looks like this design will still include the new graphics on back making it look very busy.  Hopefully it will be a distraction to the Spartans on Nov. 11th.  I am glad to see them keep their blue scheme as opposed to the other teams who revert back to the traditional brown camo.  The Spartans are also going with a camo look for the game but their scheme will be green.  Good thing they are not playing on Oregon’s “woods” court or they might really have an advantage.

I’m not sure if they will be going on sale but I’d consider buying the shorts if they do.  Go Heels!

Official press release from tarheelblue.com below:

The North Carolina men’s basketball team will wear specially-designed camouflaged, light blue uniforms for its game in the Quicken Loans Carrier Classic on Nov. 11 against Michigan State in San Diego, the school announced today. TarHeelBlue.com has exclusive photos of a sample of the uniform design.

The Spartans also will wear camouflaged green and white uniforms for the game, which will be played on the USS Carl Vinson aircraft carrier in San Diego on Veterans Day next month.

Carolina’s uniforms are versions of its redesigned jerseys for this season, unveiled earlier this month. No player names will appear on the back of the jerseys. Instead, “U.S.A.” will replace players’ last names above the uniform number on the back of all the jerseys.

Tar Heels New Aerographic Design

The Tar Heel men’s basketball team unveiled the new jersey design for the 2011-12 season.  While the front of the jerseys are essentially unchanged, the back features an aerographic design that incorporates the Old Well, the University’s iconic landmark, the outline of the state of North Carolina and a basketball.

The Carolina basketball uniform is a classic so I don’t want them to mess with it too much but I’m always down for a new jersey design.  This feels a little commercial but I’ll reserve my final judgement until I see them on the court.  Go Heels!

Also, as a bonus treat, here is a new link to their 2011-2012 yearbook… 211 pages of Tar Heel basketball heaven.

Nike unveils fitted uniforms for schools

Are you ready for the future?  Nike feels the basketball uniform needs a change and I’m not just talking about adding stripes, I’m talking about a style change.  Today, Syracuse debuted the new “fitted uniforms” released by Nike.  In short, the tops are tighter and the shorts are longer.  There are also a few different ways to modify the uni in case you would like to modify the look with an undershirt (longsleeve or shortsleeve).  Other ‘Elite’ Nike schools will also be moving to this style before too long which means watch out Heels.
