Dan Satter, University of Akron Director for External Relations, just sent out a note clarifying the jerseys. The @ZipsMBB Twitter handle will only appear on the back of shooting jerseys, not game jerseys. The school asked the NCAA for permission and was denied.
As George Thomas pointed out in his random notes, the Zips basketball team is debuting a new Nike jersey for a nationally televised game against Ohio on Feb. 2.
The black jerseys feature a Zorro-esque Z on the front and the men's basketball Twitter handle, @ZipsMBB, on the back.
We want to know what you think of the jerseys. Should they be used them more? Take our poll and let us know in the comments.
