Today, adidas and the University of Notre Dame unveiled alternate TECHFIT football uniforms for the Irish to wear during their annual Shamrock Series game on October 5. This year, the Irish will take on Arizona State at Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, Texas.

Notre Dame’s TECHFIT jersey is all-white with metallic gold and kelly green shamrock accents. Celtic numbering and an interlocking “ND” logo appear on the back of the neck. The team’s kelly green TECHFIT baselayer displays “FIGHTIN’ IRISH” on the chest and “ND” on each bicep. The helmet features Notre Dame’s signature textured gold with a gold chrome sham rich on each side and a kelly green chrome face mask. Players will also wear Team Speed vertical socks with Crazyquick and 5-Star 2.0 cleats.

The new uniform were made using TECHFIT ShockWeb technology, designed to keep players fast, cool and mobile on-field. TECHFIT ShockWeb features engineered body mapping, which maximizes compression zones across the chest and sides, in a lightweight knit structure that provides a tight fit with enhanced range of motion. Integrated CLIMACOOL mesh zones create airflow to keep players cool in every temperature.

Notre Dame Football Greats Reenact Knute Rockne Speech

words // Brandon Richard

Celebrating tonight’s BCS National Championship Game, adidas Football has rounded up several Notre Dame football greats to reenact the famous newsreel pep talk speech by legendary coach Knute Rockne. In the video provided by adidas, Tony Rice, Irv Smith, Rick Mirer, Steve Beuerlein, Reggie Brooks, Shawn Wooden, Derrick Mayes and Anthony Fasano recite the final part of Knute’s speech.

We’re going inside of ‘em, we’re going outside of ‘em — inside of ‘em! outside of ‘em! — and when we get them on the run once, we’re going to keep ‘em on the run. And we’re not going to pass unless their secondary comes up too close. But don’t forget, men — we’re gonna get ‘em on the run, we’re gonna go, go, go, go! — and we aren’t going to stop until we go over that goal line! And don’t forget, men — today is the day we’re gonna win. They can’t lick us — and that’s how it goes… The first platoon men — go in there and fight, fight, fight, fight, fight! What do you say, men!

This Saturday, the Notre Dame Fighting Irish and Michigan Wolverines will meet for the 40th time under the bright lights at Notre Dame Stadium. For the occasion, adidas unveils two new Team Speed Crew Sock options representing each team.

Team Speed Crew Socks feature a ribbed leg and compression throughout to provide a secure fit and added stability. ForMotion anatomically shaped Left/Right footbeds enhance the foot’s natural movement. ClimaLite moisture wicking fabric keeps your foot cool and dry. Cushioning has been added to high impact areas of the foot and ankle to provide maximum impact absorption. If all that wasn’t great enough, the socks meet NCAA and NFHS standards.

Week 2: College Football Player of the Week

Week 2: College Football Player of the Week

words_Jordan Hagedorn

Last week, I named Boise State QB Kellen Moore my College Football Player of the Week after a big win over Virginia Tech. This week, Michigan Sophomore QB Denard Robinson gets the nod.

Robinson and the Wolverines traveled to Notre Dame Stadium on Saturday to take on the Fighting Irish in one of the highly anticipated games of Week 2. Trailing 21-7 lead at halftime, Notre Dame scored 17 straight points to take the lead 24-21 at the 3:41 mark in the fourth quarter. That’s when Robinson led the Wolverines down the field and capped off a 12-play, 72-yard drive with a two-yard rushing TD.

Robinson ended up with 244 yards, connecting on 24 of his 40 attempts, but even more impressive he ran 28 times for 258 and two TDs. He ran for an 87-yard TD in the second quarter, which helped him average 9.2 yards per carry for the game. His other rushing TD was the aforementioned game-winning two-yard scamper while his passing touchdown was a 31-yard strike to Roy Roundtree in the first quarter.
