Happy Monday Nova Nation! I’ll be honest with you all, the links aren’t inspiring the creative juices today. So instead, I’m combining part of Friday’s thread with one of my all-time favorite VUHoops articles for today’s discussion: jersey designs.
Let’s face it, Villanova has really run the gamut on jerseys over the years. The classics are, well, classics. The current jerseys are pretty good, and of course in the 90’s things got... interesting.
The best jerseys are of course the throw backs being worn today. However, the school has yet to make them available for purchase. That’s right, there is finally something Villanova won’t let you give them money for.
But if you could design a jersey for Villanova, what would it be? Something for the whole season emblazoned with a trio of trophies? Maybe a Big 12 Champs jersey for the Kansas game? How about a “Jay is my Prince Charming” one for the games in Orlando? Or, we could flat out steal some dope designs from other sources. Be sure to put your ideas (and photos if you have them/photo shop them) in the comments below!
In the “news”, Villanova is “trending down” (to first place) in the big east, Jay Wright continues to recruit the nation’s finest, the former Wildcats are less than 2 weeks from the NBA draft, and the Colangelos wanted the impossible. Enjoy!
