As elated as Kansas fans are that heralded prospect Andrew Wiggins will don a Jayhawks uniform this upcoming season, not all of them are as thrilled about the version of the jersey he'll be wearing.modeled the new look Kansas will adopt this season at a photoshoot for GQ Magazine on Friday. Reaction to some of the tweaks to the jersey was mixed when Kansas released photos and videos from the shoot.
The biggest complaint was the shoulder stripe, which will be blue on the home jerseys and white on the road. Most fans appeared to like the shorts, though the belt buckle loop and the placement of the Jayhawks logo drew minor quibbles.
The grousing is no surprise since most fan bases tend to be resistant to change, but the complaints over the shoulder stripe have merit. That's a pretty big departure for a prestigious program whose jerseys have been altered now and again over the years but have seldom went through such a drastic makeover.
Ultimately, however, Kansas fans should be grateful for one thing. At least Adidas didn't try to get the Jayhawks to don Zubaz shorts and sleeves again like last March.
