The Notre Dame Fighting Irish paid tribute to “The Hangover” with their latest uniform reveal.
The reveal of a uniform is always much anticipated in sports, and the Notre Dame Fighting Irish did not disappoint. Rather, they enhanced the tradition with an iconic reveal.
Paying tribute to the 2009 classic, the team, head coach Marcus Freeman, and Notre Dame alumnus Mike Golic revealed a new white jersey with golden numbers.
The jerseys will make their debut on Oct. 8 when the Irish will look to test their luck in Las Vegas at Allegiant Stadium against the BYU Cougars.
Notre Dame paid tribute to The Hangover with a new uniform reveal.
Notre Dame has been in the news for several stories and potential changes, including a possible move to the Big Ten conference. However, this news takes all the headlines off the mind for at least a moment, given how the Irish pulled this off.
Creating their own wolfpack and re-enacting several scenes from the movie, all for the revelation of a gold prize that will be bestowed upon them, it’s a script that you cannot make up. Now, it’s up to Freeman and his troops to deliver in that uniform.
Last season, Notre Dame dominated much of the Fiesta Bowl before Oklahoma State came back and ultimately took the trophy away. But Freeman has shown that he has his player’s attention after stepping in for Brian Kelly after the latter departed for LSU.
The Irish have a busy schedule, including a night game season-opening matchup in Columbus against Ohio State. Freeman, a former Ohio State linebacker, will have his hands full, given how Ryan Day’s Big Ten press conference went.
It’s a shame that the Irish will have to put their new uniforms on hold and not use them against the Buckeyes, but the Cougars will have to do.
