Old School Boone Jersey

Now that is one bad-ass jersey. If the school sold these, I'd drive over there right now and pick one up.

I remember this jersey from the 70's and as much as I would hope that I could bring myself to favor them, I couldn't then and I can't now. They were silly then and they still look silly. I remember Coach A hated them with a passion (along with the friggin painted rainbow) as did the players. Why not work on something with the "Denver" logo or even "D" like the University of Minnesota has?

Thanks for the input. Interesting to hear Murray's thoughts on the Jerseys.

A DU student just made some mock-ups that are kind of cool.

When I went to DU in the '80s the uni's looked like Ronald McDonald.

The "throwback jerseys" the team will wear this season look pretty good. I'll try to find a photo from someone at DU.

That is the 1977-78 season jersey that Doug is wearing when he wore the "A" in his junior year.
