Kansas University and Adidas are at it again.

The KU athletic department on Thursday unveiled a new-look uniform that the Jayhawks will wear for their home match-up with Texas on Feb. 28.

The uniform, dubbed the "Heritage Classic" is made of modern-day material but will feature logos and lettering inspired by KU's 1988 national championship uniforms.

A special callout on the jersey's back collar, "NCAA CHAMPS 1988," further commemorates the Jayhawks' rich basketball tradition. According to the release, fans should note that the signature finishing touch adorning the collar is only on the student-athlete's game jerseys to remind the wearer of the heritage of the program as they don them.

The special uniform is part of the Jayhawks' season-long celebration of the 60th anniversary of Allen Fieldhouse.

A limited number of replica jerseys will be available immediately to fans at KUStore in Allen Fieldhouse, and at KUStore.com within the week.

Why is the KU football field that was just put in last summer being torn up and hauled away in dumpsters? Defects? Warranty? Name of the company that provided the turf, perhaps one of the companies owned by our favorite developer?

The part put down last summer is remaining -- the turf outside the playing area where the track used to be. It's the turf on the playing field itself that is being replaced. It is 6 years old.

Attaboy, Brett ~ Never let the facts get in the way of a infantile rant.

Aaron Paisley 7 years, 6 months ago

They're replacing the entire field because it needs to happen every so often.

Chris Spangenburg 7 years, 6 months ago

Only a small potion was installed last year to cover the track. The rest of the turf is getting pretty old - installed in 2008-09 I think. Maybe some core drilling/tests for renovation??

LOVE this new uniform!! So much more classy than some of the tacky stuff I see other teams wear!

I like the look, but I wish the K looked more like a K and less like an H.

Mike Riches 7 years, 6 months ago

Thanks Len, now I'll never be able to look at these without thinking that same thing! :)

I'm guessing the shorts won't be similar to '88...

That font takes me back to that crazy night in 1988!!!

Should have introduced this uniform against OU.

Bryce Landon 7 years, 6 months ago

Should have worn the previous two 1988 retros against Oklahoma instead of against Colorado in 2008 and Texas Christian in 2013.

The "NCAA Champs 1988" on the back is just asking for bad karma.

Bryce Landon 7 years, 6 months ago

I like that KU is wearing these to celebrate AFH's anniversary, and I think they do look nice. But why not break out some jerseys akin to what KU actually wore in 1955 instead for AFH's 60th anniversary? Plus, we already have the Phog uniforms with the 1988 font on them.

And oh BTW, some of these "Heritage Uniforms" are already available on Fanatics.com:

These new unis look nice, unlike the nasty gray ones and some others from this year that are just butt ugly. Could we just stick to white unis for home and blue ones for away?

LOL you need to start a petition web site, I think you are the only one wanting red at this point... :)
