The Michigan State football team revealed their new alternate jerseys for 2015 on social media this week, and they look pretty sharp.
Alternate jerseys provide excitement for both all parties involved.
For the players, it is an opportunity to try out a new uniform; a change up from the monotony of putting on the same jersey every home game.
For the fans, it feeds the never-ending desire for college football news. It also gives them the chance to purchase the specialized jersey, which often looks much cooler than their school’s default one (although there are atrocious ones each year as well).
And for the retailers on campus, it means a new item to add to the shelves, and one that is all but certain to bring in a good chunk of revenue.
On Wednesday, the Michigan State football team’s equipment staff provided a glimpse of the Spartans’ alternate jerseys for 2015 to their followers on social media, and they looked good.
Once again, NIKE appears to have done a wonderful job in designing an appealing alternate jersey. The bronze on the shoulders is a change from the white that is typically featured in this area. Below this is ‘MSU’ bordered in white, bordered in bronze, and a detailed pattern in the background.
The addition of the bronze onto the jerseys is an ode to ancient Greece, from which the Spartans derive their nickname, according to Fox Sports.
Michigan State football players and fans alike will certainly be looking forward to showing off their new alternate jerseys during the upcoming season.
