Throwback uniforms ready for football’s home opener

For the first time in 12 years, the Mean Green football program will open the 2013 season with a home game, and in the process will unveil a new “throwback” uniform to celebrate 100 years of the program.

The new jerseys are a tribute to the many eras of the program at UNT. The logo is from the Coach Hayden Fry era of the 1950s and 60s, the striped green pants from the Abner Haynes era, the block numbers and striped sleeves from the “Mean” Joe Greene era and the forest green color of the jerseys was used by the teams from 2000-2004 that went to the New Orleans Bowl in four straight seasons. The white helmet is not indicative of any particular era, but instead because throughout the program’s history the white helmet was used the most.

“We went back and searched through some old yearbooks, looked at different uniforms from different eras and we feel real good with what we came up with,” said UNT Athletic Director Rick Villarreal.

The new uniforms are to be used for just the first game of the season against the University of Idaho on August 31, and will later be auctioned off by the UNT Athletic Department.
