We're still a few months away from the 2018 college football season. The dark days of no football are taking their toll, as we wait for America's favorite sport to grace out TV's once more. Sure, spring football is just around the corner, but it's just not the same.

Just because our favorite teams aren't on the field doesn't mean we can't follow along with any news about them. That's definitely the case today as Illinois unveiled its new Nike uniforms - or perhaps it's better to say "recycled" uniforms.

Illinois revealed its new uniforms and they look (almost) exactly like another team's uniforms.

Check this out.

Illinois or Syracuse, we're not sure.

Are these new uniforms, or hand-me-downs from the Orange?

Illinois and Syracuse have similar color schemes, so it's not surprising to see uniforms that look alike, but these are nearly identical.

A little offseason drama never hurt anyone. At least this gives us something to talk about.
