Louisville to wear glow in the dark cleats, gloves vs. NC State

Louisville hosts NC State tomorrow, and the Cards will do so in a special set of gloves and cleats.

Cool idea, right?

One problem: Louisville plays at noon on Saturday.

This is the second year in a row an Adidas school has seen its uniform plan ruined by scheduling. A year ago Texas A&M wore "Aggie Nights" uniforms during an 11 a.m. local time kick against South Carolina.

One wonders how much a glow in the dark effect would have even at night, but it'd be interesting to find out. Perhaps the third time's a charm.
