Umm, Duke, Kentucky, Texas all have that patterning

on their basketball jerseys now. I think the stripes will be more subtle when the contrast and color are not amplified like in that blurry shot (same reason the yellow looks neon highligher yellow when in fact we know its not). If you look at Kentucky's jerseys closely they have the faint outlines of what look like horse racing checkers that jockeys wear; Texas has faint outlines of cattle horns, and Duke has some stuff too. If anything this is an indication that Nike really thinks of Mizzou as an elite school to customize, rather than your attempt at "woe is me, Mizzou has no balls and no identity" mantra. If that latter part is true then Duke and Kentucky have no identity in hoops either.
