AMHERST The University of Massachusetts football team will be breaking out a new set of home, away and alternate uniforms for the 2015 season that replaces the old look worn by the team since start of FBS play in 2012.

When the uniforms first leaked out to the public last month, fan reaction to the stylistic changes made in the new threads was overwhelmingly positive. wholesale jerseys The new Massachusetts state logo patch that will be featured on the back neckline above player names seems to be a hit, as well.

Our first close up with the new uniforms came Friday at UMass football media day, which featured a selection of players dressed in the new maroon jerseys.

Here’s a sampling of their thoughts on the new look, featuring a lot of love for the new stitching and Massachusetts logo:

I love them, absolutely love the new uniforms. It really brings back the tradition of UMass. The colors, they’re really traditional. I like them a lot. These feel official. I feel like I’m in the NFL wearing these things with everything stitched on. And I really like the state on the back. It’s a great touch. It’s a fresh start, a new direction. These uniforms give everyone a fresh start, the whole program. Those old ones, they had some bad memories. We want to get some good memories with these ones.

On the grey alternates: Two years ago when (the basketball team) had grey uniforms, I was always thinking “Man, I really wish we could get a grey alternate.” I’m glad we got rid of the black ones. I feel like that was a good move, too.
