 - and these look like the basketball jerseys.  

I'm upping my grade to B+.  

It's called "consistent marketing". 

I figured I'd better define it because we haven't seen it for quite a while.

Actually like the logo as a shoulder patch as much as anywhere else I've seen it so that's a positive.

< patting self on back > 

I said from the start that logo is great small.

It looks good on ball caps and polo shirts. It's fine as a patch on a football jersey front or hockey shoulder. It's good to about the size of a football helmet logo.

That all said, beyond that size it's not great. It's not a hockey jersey front

I really am looking forward to seeing these new jerseys with the numbers and names on them.  These are definitely better than the previous jerseys.  The font really makes them pop.  Look at the other jerseys with just wording on it that someone previously posted.  Boston College, BU, Denver, etc....its all just plain text.  This font is different and as a result, better IMO.  Looking forward to personalizing one of these.  Now just to decide which one to get!!!

I like that they went with a Kelly green instead of the darker green the past few years (decades?) 

The last Sioux jerseys in 2011 were the lighter (correct) green.  I agree.  This should be the color of our green jerseys.

Agree with all of that, except patting your back

Few other notes from Brad:

Quote

• Although the font of the letters are different, the numbers will be the same block style as past uniforms. The names on the backs of the jerseys also will continue to use block-style lettering.
• UND will continue going with the same style of helmets without lettering or art on them, except for the goalies.

Still seems odd that they still don't have anything on the helmets. Oh well.  Not a huge deal.  Just odd.

Not trying to start a #Sioux4Ever debate but every time I see a picture of these specific jerseys I smile.

Those things were really sharp.

Those look great. Much better than anything I was anticipating. 

Yeah, not bad.  I am still a Sioux forever guy but those don't look bad once the numbers are inserted.

I feel like it will be weird to have different fonts on the front than on the back.  We'll see though.  I wonder if the numbers on the front will be the new font or the block style to match the back?

The jerseys are fine. They are not great, but they are not bad. When you see the old Sioux jerseys, you do get a different feel from them, but that is gone.

The thing I like least about the new jersey is the new font, not the logo on the shoulders. Actually it might just be that "N"

Overall, they are fine. Just win baby!

The new font is better than the old one in my opinion.  More importantly, it matches the jerseys of other sports as well.

It's like they are trying to create an identity and promote a brand or something. Novel concept!

Wait, like 99.9% of the schools?  

Stop it with this common sense reasoning, there is no place for this here!

The old font did nothing for me, this is an upgrade.

The logo, its what and where I expected to be so

Overall:  upgrade and more willing to buy a green one.

Aren't the name plates and numbers done in-house by the equipment man?

Might they have had numbers and letters left (that meet minimum NCAA size requirements) in the equipment shop that they are going to burn through on the new sweaters. 

I'm guessing the jersey comes from Adidas/CCM/Reebok as shown in the picture and is modified in-house.

I agree  with all the changes, except:

1. Reebok -> CCM. Nothing against it, but i guess I don't inherently agree/disagree.

2. New font. If they can use a block font elsewhere on the jersey why not the front? It's quite tacky.

3. Fighting Hawks Logo. I like the green on green better than the one with the black ND.
