New ND TECHFIT Jerseys
University of Notre Dame Official Athletic Site
SOUTH BEND, Ind. – October 11, 2010 – Today, adidas and the University of Notre Dame unveil their new TECHFIT compression football jerseys. Featuring a ground-breaking compression fit and weighing 30 percent lighter than standard football jerseys, the adidas TECHFIT jersey will help players be lighter and faster on the field. The Notre Dame Fighting Irish will wear the new adidas TECHFIT jerseys this Saturday, Oct. 16 as they host Western Michigan at Notre Dame Stadium at 2:30 pm ET on NBC.
“The players could not be more excited about wearing the TECHFIT jersey this weekend,” said Notre Dame Head Coach Brian Kelly. “They love the tight fit of the jersey and the idea that they are wearing a uniform that is on the cutting edge of jersey design. The fact that the material is 30 percent lighter than what we have used in the past will decrease the jersey’s slack and should reduce the number of hand-arm tackles by our opponents. In a game often decided by inches, coaches are always looking for any small advantage they can give their team. We think the TECHFIT uniforms will benefit us greatly.”
The new Notre Dame TECHFIT jersey from adidas is a complete reconstruction of the standard uniform with multiple innovations to reduce the weight of the jersey by 30 percent. These technologies include a streamlined fit, new fabric, reduced seams and an ultra lightweight name and numbering system. In addition, the Notre Dame TECHFIT jersey keeps players cool with integrated ventilation zones and moisture management fabric. Reduced seams and a restriction-free, high-stretch collar design increases range of motion to support player agility and speed.
“The new TECHFIT jersey design will make old jerseys obsolete,” said Mark Daniels, director of football and team sports for adidas. “adidas is changing the game with this revolutionary jersey construction and compression fit because we know the right gear can make a difference during a split second play. Less material and a tighter fit means the jersey is harder to grab and you can’t tackle what you can’t grab. College football is more competitive than ever before and teams need every advantage they can get on the field.”
In addition to Notre Dame, six other adidas schools will debut the new TECHFIT jerseys this month including Michigan, Louisville, Cincinnati, Texas A&M, UCLA and Tennessee.
adidas designs and develops high-performance and lightweight football cleats, apparel and accessories for some of the greatest players and teams in the game including Reggie Bush of the Super Bowl Champion New Orleans Saints, Mario Williams of the Houston Texans, C.J. Spiller of the Buffalo Bills and Eric Berry of the Kansas City Chiefs. adidas is the official uniform and apparel provider for more than 70 collegiate football programs.

ND needs to cover Crist's shoulders. It has become apparent that the short sleeves are a distraction to him. Amazing how such an apparent simple thing like uniform fit and texture can make a difference. I once had a dynamic QB tackled, full body wrap and potential safety, turn into a 102 yard run for TD because he literally slipped through my bear hug from chest to toe. To this day, I believe his uni was sprayed with some slippy stuff.
Hey NDFanSouthWest and Johnykillz, dude was from Roswell Goddard. F U C K E R. I met the 230 pound fullback from that team a few years later. We went head to head the entire game. I guess that was their game plan, for he and I to go head to head. I found his address and peed on his lawn.
Dude was a great guy. Probably next mayor somewhere in NM.
But I peed on his lawn. Hurt him a bit that day.

How about them Aggies over those Lobos in the loser bowl?
No comment. Drunken fat guys and compression fit anything doesn't mix well.
