The Syracuse Orange unveiled their new uniforms this weekend and they seem rather close to the ones being sported currently by the Cleveland Browns
The Cleveland Browns current uniform has gotten a lot of attention since being unveiled in 2015 — and most of that attention hasn’t been pleasant. The Browns tweaked their uniform and the critics let their voices be heard.
And the staff that makes the decisions on the team’s look seemed to agree as it’s been reported that the Browns will again have a new look in 2020. Nothing has been released yet, but it feels as though the general consensus is that they need to go to something closer to their traditional look.
However, it doesn’t seem like everyone hates the Cleveland jersey. That’s because the Syracuse Orange just unveiled their new uniform and there are some shocking similarities between their new look and the one the Browns are ready to ditch.
As you can see in the above tweet, the orange on brown and white on white jerseys look an awful lot like the ones Cleveland has been sporting — even down to the shoulder stripes.
Of course, it’s likely it was a coincidence but it sure seems as though the two are rather closely related.
That wouldn’t be too surprising though as the two programs have been connected in the past. Nate Mink of Syracuse.com pointed out that the Browns best player of all-time is Jim Brown, the big running back who went to Syracuse. Brown has a statue sitting in front of FirstEnergy Stadium and has continued to be a supporter of the team he played for.
Mink also said that the only Heisman trophy winner in Syracuse history went first overall to the Browns as they took Ernie Davis who sadly passed away from leukemia.
But what do you think? Does the uniform look similar to the ones the Browns wear? Let us know in the comments below.
