The Notre Dame Fighting Irish and Miami Hurricanes will add to their historic rivalry this season when they play in the first week of October. Notre Dame decided that the two historic programs playing against one another simply wasn't enough, and it will switch its wardrobe up for the big matchup.

For a team that is based on tradition, the new look is certainly going to receive many negative reviews from traditionalists. But even if you are a fan of the recent trend of programs switching up their look, there aren't many people that are giving this Notre Dame uniform a pass.

If you are an Irish fan, you may want to stop reading right now because things may tend to get ugly, as we searched the Twitter universe for reactions on the new apparel that Notre Dame will wear in the game against Miami.

Sal Guerrero of gets us started.

There is no question that Notre Dame has the traditional look down to a science. And judging by the new look, they may want to stick to the old, plain uniforms from now on.

Fan Adam Wojtys warns everyone before they see them.

You may want to take his advice.

TheCassino, writer for, reminds Irish fans it can always be worse.

Playing Michigan, Michigan State, Oklahoma, USC and Staford certainly is no easy task.

Fan Sterling Gould has jokes.

Can it get any worse than that?

Via Tim Siedell:

It looks like it can.

Via @sportspickle:

It is all fun and games until somebody goes for the low blow.

Sportswriter @janjan:

Judging by last season’s look, we are starting to believe they do. Either that, or Notre Dame continues to lose a bet.

Via Brian Hamilton of the Chicago Tribune:

Well, at least somebody likes the new uniforms. And at the end of the day, the players are the ones that have to wear them.

Fan Patrick Quaife gets personal.

Although, at the age of 63, I'm not sure you will see him on the field for anybody.

Fan Michael Taub:

Hmm, these are extremely hard to top.

Via Adam Kramer of Bleacher Report and Kegs ‘n Eggs:

The Big Lead writer @SportsHernia:

At the end of the day, that is what it is all about.

Michael Citro of

OK, this has to stop.
