OUT WITH THE NEW: BYU TOLD TO DITCH BIBS ON HOME UNIFORMS
Published March 29, 2000
New NCAA legislation has forced Brigham Young Univ. (BYU) to get rid of the white swatches of fabric on the front of their home football uniforms -- known as "bibs" -- for the 2000 season, according to Jeff Call of the DESERET NEWS. BYU AD Val Hale: "The legislation prohibits white on the home jersey, with the exception of the player's number. That eliminates the bibs." BYU debuted the Nike-designed uniforms last season, but many fans "expressed their aversion to the brash fashion statement." BYU LB Justin Ena: "They were voted, what, the ugliest or second ugliest uniforms in the country? We didn't mind them. But we'll proudly comply with the NCAA." Also, several BYU opponents "complained" that the white bibs "caused confusion as they blended with the visiting team's white tops." Nike will again create the new home uniforms (DESERET NEWS, 3/28).
