WATCH: Minnesota players demonstrate just how difficult it is removing jersey and shoulder pads
Getting into and out of a college football uniform has gotten increasingly more difficult over the years. As players seem to get bigger, the uniforms appear to be getting smaller.
At B1G Media Days this week, a few Golden Gophers demonstrated just how difficult it was to remove a jersey and shoulder pads for players today. Though it only took about 10 seconds to get out of the uniform, it still looked way more difficult than it needed to be.
Just check out the video:
I’ve often wondered how players get their pads/jersey off nowadays, with how small and tight they are, and it’s as tough as I imagined. 😂 pic.twitter.com/b2JZT1QjMj

In case you were wondering, that was Minnesota running back Rodney Smith. Can you imagine what it must be like for a 300-pound lineman?
If the jerseys get any smaller, players might just put them on at the beginning of the season and not remove them until the year is over.
