Minnesota Golden Gopher New Basketball Uniforms

The Minnesota Golden Gophers saw their football team debut new uniforms for the 2012 season, and it looks like the men's basketball team will also be getting new uniforms. 

Marcus Fuller of The Pioneer Press had a post talking about the new uniforms, though we weren't supposed to see them for awhile yet. But, as is often the case these days, a player happened to send out a tweet with an early picture.
This wweet, from sophomore Joe Coleman, has been deleted (as is also often the case these days) since then, but like all things on the Internet, full deletion is never likely. That is a pro AND a con of the internet. 
This U of M basketball player then followed it up with a tweet that read "Dang guess I can't do that." Haha Joe, you silly boy.


The new jerseys from Nike are using a mesh design that the company refers to as their "Aerographics design," which allows an almost-subtle image on the jerseys. In this case, it's the likeness of Williams Arena, the "M" and the year the University was established, "1851." Lookin' GOOD!

Do you think the Gophers have the budget for this change? 

Leave me a comment on your opinion!
