Northwestern's special edition Wounded Warrior uniforms

CREATED Nov. 6, 2013

The Northwestern Wildcats will take on Michigan Saturday afternoon as conference play continues in the Big Ten.

Garnering more headlines than the game itself are the Wildcats uniforms. The team will honor Wounded Warriors with a special edition Wounded Warrior uniform created by Under Armour. They are solid gray, dotted with the American Flag splattered with fake blood. The helmet is also an American Flag with splattered blood. 

On the back of the jersey, where a players last name would normally appear, will be one of several words: Duty, honor, commitment, courage, country, integrity or service.
 
Some believe this is a long-overdue tribute to an outstanding cause. Others believe the splattered blood hits a little too close to home for those who served in the armed forces. 
 
What do you think? Is this a fitting tribute, or a good idea taken too far?
