Notre Dame’s unveils uniform for Miami game

Notre Dame fans going to see the football team at Soldier Field

in Chicago when the Fighting Irish play Miami in October may not

recognize the home team.

The Irish will wear a special uniform for the neutral-site home

game. The jerseys have metallic numbers that say IRISH on the

front. The gold pants have a blue stripe on the left side with a

leprechaun on it. The helmet is gold on the top and the right side

and blue on the left with a leprechaun.

The South Bend Tribune reports (http://bit.ly/NrIUDz ) the

unveiling of the uniforms Thursday led to extreme reactions on

Twitter and fan message boards. One person posted: ”WE ARE! MD!”

referring to the uniforms the Terrapins wore last year patterned

after that state’s flag.
