February 16th, 2014| by

Illinois State’s 70-54 victory over Bradley on Saturday was a performance that did former Redbirds star Doug Collins proud. As were ISU’s positively groovy throwback uniforms.

The Redbirds’ retro threads consisted of some blast-from-the-past, candy-striped shorts and jerseys consisting of “State” running inside a red “I” and the players’ numbers off to the right – just like what Collins occasionally wore when he was at ISU in the early 1970s.

Illinois State ought to consider sporting these more often. Saturday’s double-digit win came a little more than a year after the Redbirds sported the throwbacks for the first time and crushed Southern Illinois, 83-47.
