    NFL 2018 changes

    Sorry I don't use image search algorithms as a basis to construct proper written and verbal communication. Just because the masses have chosen to adopt improper terminology does not make it so.

    Chauncey917 is spot on.

    I prefer accuracy and proper context over lazy mischaracterizations.

    The term yoga pants is misused on this board. Traditional yoga pants are not tights, form fitting, nor made of stretch materials. They are lightweight and loose fitting, nothing like football pants. The term was co-opted by pop journalism and athletic wear companies due to the correlation that they were commonly worn to yoga classes. The proper terminology would be to use in the following scenario: "When the ravens wear black pants with black socks they give the appearance that they are wearing 3/4 length tights or leggings that are ubiquitous amongst the fitness and athleisure crowd."

    College Football uniforms- 2018

    This helmet is pretty heinous. I understand they are a service academy, but this depiction of the AC-130 in guns a blazin' mode is a very poor representation of the usafa. I prefer my over the top promo shots of our immense military firepower to be sourced from defense contractor promo materials.

    The multi-generational romantic affair with a failed secession movement, outright treason, and an unconditional surrender to the point that it's become embedded as a subculture of this country is an outright shame and black eye on this country. If you ask me Lincoln let them off too easy and Sherman quit marching too soon.
  7. Yellow shorts, white calf socks, and black high tops are straight out of grandpa's summertime wardrobe.

    My interpretation of the article after reading the 1st two paragraphs is that bsu's claim is extremely flimsy and would not hold up in court but they like to pretend that they are some arbiter of colored sports fields. All of the retroactive granting of rights and attempting to claim the rights to the nickname broncos is absolutely ridiculous.
  9. Agreed. There is not a single element that is an improvement over the last set. Sure the wishbone collar needed a replacement, but these bastardized showtime uni's are clunky and muddled. Showtime yellow unis should have been a throwback and that's it.

    I agree with all of this. If you are not an old school program, play in a warm or temperate climate, and have an abundance of light colors in your uniform you should be wearing white or team color footwear. Ideally psu would be coming off the death penalty right about now so any updates to their identity would be a sign of progress.

    I'm referring to general identity/uniform designs being differentiated within a conference not when they play each other but thanks for chiming in.

    yes it got bad when bc dropped the black outlines and fsu went from white to gold numbers...it would be great if teams in the same conference could agree to differentiate from each other via helmet colors, striping, number colors etc.

    They are not good by any means. The last nike uniforms were very good due to the superior templates, shade of silver/gray and fonts. The only explanation that I could even understand is that they signed their deal so late in the year that this was all they could do to replicate the look from last season. Even with that being the case, it's still not acceptable.

    What if YOU were the XFL Commissioner?

    I'm down with the rugby league hybrid model and have thrown that idea around with buddies. 100% on board with helmets and tackling. Would love to reduce substitutions to 1 per series (barring injury) to create more mismatches, maybe even eliminate dedicated kickers. Also the amount of actual scrimmage time for an nfl game is something like 11 minutes total off of a 60 minute game clock, taking 3 hours to complete is pathetic. To force scrimmage eliminate huddles, tighten the play clock and any sort of direct play calling/radioing in. As much as I dislike chip kelly for being a prick and passing off a high school offense as game changing, his uptempo concept (copied from southern hemisphere rugby) was a step in the right direction.

    I guess each week they can decide, "do we want to copy stanford or wazzu???" Tough choices...
