I spoke to a Nike official on Tuesday who told me talks are underway with USC about wearing an alternate uniform in either 2023 or 2024.
What would it look like?
“I think the most likely option would be an all-white uniform,” the official said.
USC’s considered an alternate uniform in the past but decided against it because of the public backlash. Steve Sarkisian pondered wearing an all-white uniform during his tenure but it never got approved.
“It could happen next season or maybe the first season in the Big Ten,” the official said. “We’re talking.”
This white helmet was created by the Pac-12 media day in 2014.
- I’m hearing Lane Kiffin did not take the Auburn job because he really wants to succeed Nick Saban at Alabama. There was a lot of chatter Tuesday on the coaching grapevine that Deion Sanders will take the Colorado job but nothing will be finalized until after Jackson State completes its season.
