It is not abnormal for a recruit or incoming player to break news of a new football uniform for a program. Schools are always showing off upcoming uniforms to recruits because kids are so easily swayed in to a decision based on uniforms. Hey, if it works for Oregon, why can't it work for Eastern Michigan (OK, scratch that).
That is exactly how we all came to know about Eastern Michigan's new helmet and look. Incoming freshman linebacker Hunter Matt tweeted a photo on a January visit to the campus, and more recently Eastern Michigan released official information about the uniform on their athletics website.
The 2012 Eastern Michigan Football team will feature new state of the art football Techfit uniforms. These uniforms are seamless and 30 percent lighter than the normal stretch mesh jerseys. Adidas outfits the Eagles with top of the line products including the new 6.9 oz Adizero Cleats, which are the lightest football cleats ever made on the market. We feel if you look good, you will feel good and play good!
So how many uniform combinations will Eastern Michigan have this season? How about, THIS MANY!
