How does "B1G" patch look on your team's jersey? Here you go

With the first Big Ten football game still three-plus weeks away, I’m looking for any excuse to talk football. Uniform updates help me pass the time. Today is no different, especially with the release of Wisconsin’s new adidas alternate uniform. On a smaller note, the conference has a new rule that requires every team to wear a “B1G” patch on its jerseys. It’s been reported quite a bit and it’s something I tried to spotlight in my media days Clothes Call recap, but here is photo evidence.

Not a big thing at all. It’s something the conference is implementing this season, both on jerseys and football fields (here’s an example and another), not to mention other playing surfaces (example and another).

Here’s a sneak peek at how the logo will look on Big Ten jerseys:

And Minnesota tweeted this photo of all three of its “B1G” patches:

Again, this is not a significant change, but it’s something Big Ten fans are very passionate about – no matter how small.

On a random note, where did all the open space go on these jerseys? Between this new logo, the manufacturer’s logo and, in some cases, the team’s logo on the bottom of the collar (i.e. Purdue’s train) and the school’s name (i.e. “Michigan State”) above the player numbers, space is hard to come by.

The “B1G” logo looks great on all of the jerseys. It should be on every jersey of every Big Ten team in every sport that the conference sponsors. It should also be on the playing surface of every venue that the conference or a Big Ten school hosts an event of a sport that the conference sponsors at. It is great to see all of this representation of the greatest collegiate athletic conference in the country.

These clutter the jerseys. Unwelcome, thank you very much. Put the logo on the backs of the collars or the center forehead of the football helmet.
