In a move that has been received with widespread praise from the Gopher faithful, head football coach P.J. Fleck has announced that the program will be discarding the modern Nike uniforms that appeal to high school prospects in favor of the leather helmets and hand-me-down jerseys and pants from the 1930’s.
“We haven’t won a national championship here at Minnesota since 1960,” said Fleck. “We want to build a program that is winning championships year in and year out, and Minnesota won five national championships between 1934 and 1941. That’s the kind of dynasty we want to emulate and it starts with what we wear during games.”
One reporter dared to question whether or not uniforms have any actual impact on a team’s wins and losses, and Fleck simply stared at the reporter for five minutes before responding with, “Change your best,” and leaving the podium.
