We’re just 12 days away from kicking off the 2013 Louisville football season, which means we’re also 12 days away from the return of the black uniforms. Petrino’s first tenure with the program is when we first saw the black uniforms. Steve Kragthorpe kept the black uni’s during his three years at Louisville, but once Charlie Strong took over, we never saw them again.
During the ACC Kickoff party in early July, Petrino confirmed that the season opening game against Miami would in fact be a “Blacc Out.” We’ve gotten plenty of glimpses of what the black jerseys and helmets look like over the past few weeks. It appears that the team actually started breaking in the black helmets during Wednesday’s practice.
