When you think Ole Miss, you think football. Ole Miss basketball has something to say about that, though, with the impending formal introductions of their new Nike uniforms, since they’re now a Nike Elite program.
The uniforms leaked on Snapchat Monday.

The Pavilion at Ole Miss, colloquially known as The Pavilion, is an all-purpose 9,500-seat arena that’ll serve as the new home for the Rebels’ men’s and women’s basketball teams. These are all giant, progressive steps for the program, which always stays in the shadow of its big brother in the football team.
And though we’re surely all happy for Rebels basketball, this is what they came up with?
The cut of the jersey is concerning to say the least. The seam of the back goes so far in that the cut-off of blood circulation might be a realistic fear. Fortunately, the Rebels have the chance to justify these bold yet rather un-appealing jerseys by letting their play do the talking.
Ole Miss will tip their season off Nov. 3 in Oxford against Morehouse.
