Miami switches weird uniform fonts with more traditional look

  Many fans complained about the strange font used by Miami. AD Blake James announced changes will happen.

The overall reception to Miami's new Adidas uniforms has been positive with the exception of one element: the uniform's lettering.

Many fans complained that the current nameplate font--which uses a combination of upper and lowercase lettering--has been too difficult to read or tell some players' names apart from one another.

But Hurricanes fans won't have to worry about that for much longer.

Miami athletic director Blake James tweeted Tuesday afternoon that the nameplates will have a new font that represents a cleaner, more traditional look.

It's unknown when the changes will debut, but the Hurricanes do have a bye this week, which should give Adidas and the equipment staff plenty of time to change the nameplates.

It is possible the 'Canes will have a fresh look on Thursday Oct. 1 in their nationally-televised game against Cincinnati.

Let's just hope people are satisfied this time around so they won't have to mock the uniforms on social media anymore.
