Gophers hoops gets Aerographic jersey design

Minnesota Basketball Jersey

@Double_1

If you’ve watched Illinois, Michigan State, Ohio State or Purdue basketball recently, you may have noticed their jerseys have a large, yet faint, design on the back. It’s a Nike thing, and it’s called the Aerographic design. Add Minnesota to the club. Sophomore Joe Coleman tweeted a picture of the new jersey Wednesday.

The Gophers’ design features Williams Arena, Minnesota’s block “M” logo and “1851,” the year the University of Minnesota was founded. Here’s what the back of the jersey used to look like.

Call me old school, but I prefer the design-less look. Take a look at some of Nike’s other Aerographic jerseys.

If the players like them, let them play.

Looks like a outline of The Barn on there too. That’s cool. I like them.
