College Football: The 2011 Notre Dame Uniform Survey
Blue, Gold, and Green.

“Maybe there is and maybe there isn’t, but when you put on a Notre Dame uniform you feel it [the spirit], and you play for it.” ~George Connor

“Our jerseys have an interlocking N.D. on the sleeve, a number on the front and back, no names, and we wear black Adidas shoes. People ask me why we wear black shoes, and I said, ‘I didn’t think the players would like brown ones.’ People complained because we don’t have names on our jerseys, and I said, ‘You should feel lucky we have numbers on them.’ It has the N.D. and that says it all.” ~Lou Holtz

Since One Foot Down has brought you a history pictorial all of the Notre Dame uniforms over the years, we wanted to get your opinion on this topic and see what you like and dislike.
