Fun Fact: Candy Cane Pants
Indiana's basketball program is famous for its characteristic and unchanging attire. While the rest of college athletics is centered on the newest and flashiest trends (with Oregon and Maryland at the forefront), Indiana has made minimal changes to its uniforms over the years.
Bob Knight, the classically stodgy and conservative coach whose name is commonly attributed to Indiana, always wore the same red knit sweater on the sideline. Indiana famously lacks nameplates on the back of its basketball jerseys.
Indiana's most iconic fashion choice is the candy cane white and red vertically striped pants its basketball players wear during warmups. A staple of the program, the candy-striped pants are so typical that even some local high schools sport the Hoosiers' fashion.
