    Are these alternates, or did we finally replace the road blacks with navy blue?

    What a funny coincidence about the new road unis. I was reading Woods’ story today about some overlooked pieces of Butler history and one of the photos was of Brandon Polk in his playing days. Looked like he was wearing dark blue instead of black; I had no idea we’d worn blue that recently. Unless my eyes are that bad/there was a special jersey for that particular game?

    I’ve always wanted to go dark blue instead of black (I have an irrational disdain for teams who wear black/any other color jerseys when it isn’t one of their colors.) I’ll say, however, I’m not loving these, especially how much white piping there is, particularly on the back above the name. I’m picky, though.

    Love the overall decision to go dark blue. Can’t wait for the season to start!

    The team wore Blue for road jerseys during the mid 2000s. Unfortunately they were all pretty bad years.

    I might be alone on this, but I wish the team would settle on a style and stick with it. It seems like they completely change the jerseys each season. There’s just something iconic when a team has a consistent jersey or style year-in and year-out.

    Having said that, I would LOVE for Butler to wear throwback jerseys from the Cornette/Archey days at least once a year. Those are my favorite jerseys that Butler has ever had. Though, I’m sure there are Nike/contractual reasons that this isn’t possible.

    Couldn’t disagree more. Look how much fun the guys are having in these pictures. We should have a new alternate every season.

    Love the blues for road games, and hope we stick to it. The black for blacks sake uniform trend was a late 90s early 00s thing. Use our school colors and keep it simple. Wouldn’t mind seeing a throwback set mixed in a couple times a year, similar to what Villanova and Xavier does.

    To each his own. And I'd love to have a new third/alternate jersey each year. But it would be nice to have some consistency with the "main" home & away jerseys.

    But as long as the players are happy and Butler keeps making the tournament I really don't care what they wear.

    You do realize that "throwbacks" only exist because the team has changed jerseys over the years...

    I think we should have two home unis(white & gray) and two road unis(blue & black).

    I am fully aware of what a throwback jersey is. Not sure how that connects to anything about what I said though. Obviously designs will change over time. But I hope they stick to White/Home and Blue/Road as their primary looks going forward.

    The white shoulder stripe that extends below the neck looks weird as hell. I wonder if that's a Nike template thing or if we're going to be the only goofballs wearing that this year?

    I loved the road blacks, I'm good with a return to road blues, would support a road black alternate, but I think this new template is pretty bad.

    It's confirmed the navy blue are alternates, we still have the road blacks.

    I for one am glad they have gone back to the traditional blue, long overdue, never cared for the black or alternate uniforms. Nine days till action.

    Bummer. Let's be real: the only reason many tolerate the road blacks is because of the fond memories of the 2010-2011 tournament runs. In reality, they're ugly as sin. I'd love for these blues to be the mainstay road jerseys. I think they're great.

    According to Brad, black unis give you an advantage. That advantage being you look tougher in black. Just like the reason the Raiders, Steelers and Bengals get more penalties every year because refs think they are badasses.

    I'm pretty sure the Bengals can thank Vontaze Burfict for their extra penalties, and both the Steelers and Bengals could do the same with James Harrison while he was around. As far as the Raiders go...well, they are just plain bad.

    So are Butler’s normal road uniform still black? Not a huge fan of the blue ones.
