On second thought: IU won't wear special uniforms against Michigan, after all
A day after making news with its “Salute to Service” camouflage uniform reveal, Indiana has decided to call an audible and wear a different uniform combination.
The change came on Friday after the Big Ten and Indiana chatted and determined there was not enough contrast with the white Michigan uniforms.

As of now, it doesn’t appear that Indiana has announced what jersey it will wear now instead. Just going to assume the Hoosiers won’t be breaking out any white jerseys on Saturday.
This has to be a nightmare for the Indiana marketing department. These rollouts, especially one like this, is not an easy task. And while some are speculating on Twitter that this move comes after some criticism of the jerseys, it wasn’t that much criticism where a change needed to be made.
