Illinois Will Wear ‘Gray Ghost’ Alternate Uniforms Against Minnesota

illinois-gray-ghost


Hey, we found a reason to be excited about Illinois football. That is certainly no small feat.

The Illini will wear these gray uniforms against Minnesota on Oct. 25, a homage to the great Red Grange, who was nicknamed “The Galloping Ghost.”

You see, wearing red to honor Red Grange would have just made too much sense.

My review: these are fine. And I really don’t even care anymore. It’s gotten to the point where you can’t even look at a game and know with any certainty which team is which without a graphic explaining the situation.

What’s one more color change going to hurt?
