  1. Biggest Downgrades in History

    One that's near and dear to my heart: While the 1998 set went a bit overboard compared to 1997 with the black stripes on the helmets and collars, nothing could prepare BYU and college football fans in general for what would hit us in 1999. 1997 1998 1999
  2. Wisconsin-founded Famous Dave's has a similar issue (though pigs will eat about anything):

    Based on his writing sample, he sure as heck isn't writing copy at J. Peterman.
  5. Why does no team use earth tone colors? 

    There are several schools at the NCAA D1 FBS level that use earth tones. Both Wyoming and Western Michigan are brown and gold: Colorado State's dark green and gold: The maroon and gold of Minnesota, Central Michigan, and Arizona State can by very earthy:
  6. College Football uniforms- 2018

    Part of it is context. Minnesota men's hockey wore the below away jerseys from 1999-2005, winning back-to-back NCAA national championships during that period. But because Minnesota's maroon hockey jerseys traditionally have a gold "M," Gopher fans hated these jerseys. All subsequent maroon jerseys have gone back to using a gold "M."

    I understand this sentiment as well as a fellow Gopher fan, but might I suggest that the better solution is that Fleck does well enough the next year or two to get hired away and the Gophers hire a traditionalist to take over.

    Wow. These are bad in so many ways.

    Agreed. The Avs should just wear burgundy breezers, gloves, and helmets and call it a day. On game cam, the black blends into the burgundy anyway with the dynamic ranges of broadcasting equipment.
  10. Pretty daring, but as long as the Tigers don't go the way of Leeds Utd... Again, because this cracks me up (obviously not a Leeds supporter):

    I'm sure there's also a movement to add a fifth for the Cubs winning the World Series.

    I can only imagine how old it gets to hear their opposing fans joking about eating pretzels and bringing pretzels to games...

    I work in IP litigation (mostly patent, with some copyright, trademark, and trade secret scatter in), and I've always thought this case would most likely go in favor of the Army because the issue is whether there is a likelihood that consumers might confuse the Army's jump team and the hockey team as having a common affiliation (be it ownership, sponsorship, etc.), not whether people would confuse that actual products or services (thinking they were going to see an airshow and ending up at a hockey game). Because of that, if there is a settlement, I expect the Army to be getting some pretty good concessions out of Vegas. This SI.com article does a good job covering the basic legal issues: https://www.si.com/nhl/2018/01/11/examining-army-potential-case-vegas-nhl-golden-knights-trademark
