Now You, Too, Can Dress Like RichRod

Posted By on Thu, Sep 5, 2013 at 2:30 PM

The apparel choices for the discerning UA football fan are many, as long as it involves red or blue.

For students, you can go with the standard-issue Zona Zoo shirts provided as part of your club membership (but remember that, if you walk out of Arizona Stadium early while wearing a tee that states "Zona Zoo Stays The Entire Game" on the back is like having your back bedazzled with a Kick Me sign) or you can try to be a fashionista and turn said shirt into a dress, a skirt, a tube top — still waiting for the homemade thong to pop up at some point — to show your support for the Wildcats.

It's a little more simple for us adults, though. The choices usually are just a matter of which of our many red or blue UA-themed tops clog our closets.

But thanks to the almighty Nike, you can also include "dress like head coach Rich Rodriguez and his stable of like-dressed assistants and interns do on the sidelines" in your options.

As long as you're willing to cough over the ridiculous prices quoted for what's basically a polo and an adjustable hat:

I'm sure there are some nice perks to donning these swanky threads on game day. Maybe you'll be mistaken for a graduate assistant — assuming you're wearing the requisite khakis, which amazingly haven't been co-opted by Nike and released for sale — and get to roam the sidelines with RichRod and his band of ">merry Hard edge cowboy coaches.

You might also get to help influence the color choice of the man himself, since apparently (Fake) RichRod is notoriously uncertain about whether to go red, blue or white and often takes to Twitter to gauge public opinion:

Happy shopping, folks! Pardon me while I abstain, partly for the desire to not have to wear polos unless absolutely necessary and also as part of my ongoing protest due to the ridiculous fact that the red UA baseball jerseys still aren't for sale.
