PHOTOS: Illinois unveils its new uniforms
Illinois is set to debut their new uniforms Wednesday night, but it looks like photos of them have already hit the Internet.
Illinois revealed a new look for its football uniforms on Wednesday night during a "rebranding" the school had been hyping for weeks.

Overall, I have to say good for the Illini, because these are sharp; the soccer-style patch on the collar is a nice, nice touch, and the jerseys skillfully straddle the line between being too busy-slash-futuristic (think "Oregon") and too dull (think any number of classic uniforms). Shame they seem set on pairing the orange jersey with the orange pants, though.
