New Notre Dame Football Uniforms: Former Player Jeff Samardzija Not Enthused

Former Notre Dame football player and current Chicago Cubs pitcher Jeff Samardzija told Doug Padilla of ESPN Chicago that he's not impressed with the idea of new uniforms at Notre Dame ... although he hasn't actually seen the uniforms yet:

"We never got any big screens or anything there," Samardzija said about the lack of a video board at Notre Dame Stadium. "They said it was all because of tradition. I don't see why they have to change now but hey, whatever."

Notre Dame unveiled special new official Adidas jerseys yesterday for the school's Soldier Field Game against the Miami Hurricanes Oct. 6. Athletic Director Jack Swarbrick also announced that the uniforms were part of the university's 'Shamrock Series' concept — the Miami game will be the first of four off-site home games in the next four years in which Notre Dame will wear the jerseys. Swarbrick said other locations for future games have been chose, but other than this year's game at Soldier Field, they are not releasing the other locations yet.

Notre Dame's Jack Swarbrick: New Uniforms Will Give Special Feel To 'Shamrock Series' Games

Notre Dame unveiled new official Adidas jerseys today for the Soldier Field Game against the Miami Hurricanes Oct. 6. The changes are a drastic departure from the classic Notre Dame look, and Notre Dame Athletic Director Jack Swarbrick told the South Bend Tribute that was exactly the point:

Notre Dame's off-site home games -- the fourth of which will be the Miami clash -- are now branded as the Shamrock Series. And the uniform deviations have become a part of that branding.

"Because the game is now part of something that is going to last and has its own identification as the Shamrock Series," ND athletic director Jack Swarbrick began, "we decided in a very conscious way to take this and use this as the one time each year that we modify our uniforms.

Swarbrick also said the school has venues chosen for the 'Shamrock Series' games through 2016, though the 2014-16 locations are still being kept secret.
