The Kansas City Star reports that Bill Self confirmed the Jayhawks will wear the uniforms for at least one game in the conference tournament, but not after that. Some KU fans are hoping that the jerseys don't even make it that far. A petition posted today on We The People is asking the Obama administration to "Stop Kansas basketball from wearing the new uniforms proposed by adidas [sic]," and reads as follows:
Adidas has designed uniforms for KU basketball that are stylistically heinous and tarnish a venerated institution. Stand up for our university, for coherent color schemes, and for the spirit of Wilt Chamberlain.
As of lunchtime, there were 225 of the 100,000 signatures required for a response from the White House. The response from KU fans appears to have come much sooner.
