According to Jay Paterno, Nike proposed this Penn State jersey sometime in the 1990′s.
Thankfully someone stood up to Phil Knight and company and declined.
Also, by looking at the photo, it is amazing to see how much jersey technology has changed in 15-20 years.
At this point, alternate jerseys are something that I am fully expecting from Penn State. In fact, some have already been proposed by Charles Sollars, but please don’t let them look like this.
