Today Notre Dame football with the help of Under Armour revealed their throwback "1988 uniforms" for Senior Day which will be worn November 12th versus Boston College.
You can't go wrong with the traditional Notre Dame BLUE and GOLD for an "alternate" jersey. I like the mesh look of the jerseys with the white and gold numbers. The mesh look brings back memories of Chris Zorich and Michael Stonebreaker terrorizing backfields in the late 80's.
The black Under Armour shoes look awesome to go along with the GOLD pants. Thank you for getting the gold right on the pants Under Armour. It's key to have the shine of the Golden Dome match the pants in my opinion. The helmets are the same gold as the Dome so now we got a complete uniform that matches.
In conclusion I love these alternate '88 throwback jerseys. It's a traditional look with modern technology. The patch commemorating 150 years of college football looks sharp and not out of place.
If Notre Dame wants to make these the permanent uniforms and not just the Senior Day edition I don't think you would get much blow back from Notre Dame alumni and fans. Just a hint.

And to be honest I'm glad they didn't bring out green jerseys for Boston College. I still have recurring nightmares from 2002 with Ryan Grant and Pat Dillingham fumbling away an undefeated season in those bright green uniforms.
