NC State has become much more creative with its uniforms since Dave Doeren arrived, and that’s been more than welcome. On Wednesday night, the school unveiled the football team’s latest alternates: a throwback to the diamond logo era that spanned the Dick Sheridan and Mike O’Cain tenures.
Oct. 8 is the 50th anniversary of NC State’s first game at Carter-Finley. That also happens to be the weekend that Notre Dame comes to town. Safe to say that game is going to be festive. And maybe a little surreal seeing the diamond back on the uniform.
That'll be the only game these threads make an appearance, I assume. I mean unless NC State wins that game; then the Pack will have to wear those uniforms at home the rest of the year.
It’s a solid, clean look, though I’ve always wanted to see State bring back the helmets it wore during the mid-to-late 1960s. Well, there’s always the 100-year anniversary.
