Based on the quasi-desperate makeover(s), is it time to dub ’12 Notre Dame football "Crazy, Stupid Irish"?John Walters

Dear Adidas. You’re shitting us, right? Baby Jesus weeps. So does his Mom on top of the Dome. #irishfug S
Notre Dame uni for Oct. 6 game vs. Miami is crrrrraaaazzzzyyy! Lukas
@jdubs88 just saying calling it quasi desperate when they announced they were doing it for every Shamrock Series is a lil over the topSteve G
Amen to that. RT @NDatRivals Bottom line about the uniforms, they’re for teenagers and college kids, not 40-year old dads. So settle down.One Foot Down
@125NDFB Media day officially over. Kelly

Wow Notre Dame. Tradition was pretty much all you had going for you, and you up and tossed that right out the window!Jonathan Thoma
The non-ND part of my feed reacting to the unis was even funnier than the ND folkNDEddieMac
First thought on ND uniforms vs Miami: Look like Maryland, play like Maryland?Pat Forde
Can’t Notre Dame just dress up Brian Kelly like Moose Krause and call that an alternate uniform?John Walters
@jdubs88 I agree. Winning trumps all. But this is football and supposed to be fun. Why can’t they mess with stuff for 1 game and have fun?Steve G
You can argue Notre Dame’s relevance on the field if you want, but when it comes to terrible unis it doesn’t get much more relevant than ND.Tom Fornelli
Look at these helmets. This is Notre Dame. My god, look at them. Hinton
Guys, after seeing the new ND unis, Ty has decided to quit CFB. Let me know if any of you want to start co-hosting.The Solid Verbal

@jdubs88 Chicken or Egg argument. We don’t have Ws, how do we get them? Good players. What do they want? Lots of free shit = multiple unis.Chest Rockwell
Crazy how some people don’t like the new #NotreDame uniforms for the Miami game. I like the change up. #NDFB #Irish #NotreDame @UND_comPhillip Daniels
These helmets are the most hideous thing in the history of Notre Dame, and I’m including Quasimodo: Siedell
Seriously, I thought ND’s unis were going to have shamrocks and dumb shit like that, so this ain’t that bad.BurritoBrosShits
@duckhook7 A full scholarship to a top-20 academic institution is "lotsa free shit." I want players who are mature enuf to see that.John Walters
Miami gonna look damn stupid when they get beat by a team dressed like that though.BurritoBrosShits

NDNation would prefer the team didn’t wear face masks. Or get the measles vaccine. #traditionsir broosk
"Grandfather, why are all uniforms just grey with numbers now?" "Well Johnny, there once was this company called Adidas."Adam Kramer
So, does ND no longer have a deal with Macgregor? #$$$teamcatlab
