Clothes Call: Dialing up Big Ten designs

Big Ten schools often roll out interesting changes to team uniform and equipment design, and it most definitely strikes a chord with fans from all schools. So we launched Big Ten Clothes Call, our home for news on crazy theoretical helmet ideas, throwback uniforms, special football jerseys, unique basketball jerseys, and plenty more like this video from a few seasons ago on the evolution of Illinois’ uniforms.

And while we keep our eyes out for the interesting uniform news, come tell us if you see something cool. Further down in this post BTN.com’s Brent Yarina looks at how Big Ten coaches wore sneakers as part Coaches vs. Cancer in support of a great cause.
