  1. New Florida Gators Unifrom

    The recruiting theory is overblown. Alabama doesn't seem to have problems with recruiting and they wear two jerseys. Penn State's idea of alts was to add numbers to its helmets this year, and they're cleaning up in recruiting and doing well on the field. Oregon has worn 1,000, and their recruiting and program have taken a nosedive since Chip Kelly left. There are alternate uniforms because these schools know they can sell them as merchandise. Plain and simple. If a player chooses your school because of uniforms (and I'm skeptical about how often that really is because uniforms seem to fall behind how much under-the-table benefits they can get, how they like the coaches, academics in some cases, and possibly a girlfriend going to the same school), I'm not sure I want that guy on my team.
  2. College Football Uniforms - 2017 Season

    Good. They looked horrible.
  3. MLB Changes 2017

    They had phased out their already rare use of the all-orange cap in 2015. Originally, they only wore it for Saturday home games with the regular home uniforms, but they started to quit doing that either in late 2014 or early 2015. They introduced the orange/blue cap in 2016, probably to sell new merchandise. They also introduced their current alt navy top that season, too. As for wearing the all-navy cap in Boston, my guess would be because they lost with the orange-billed cap in Game 3. They got a little superstitious with the orange jerseys a couple of years ago in the postseason and they finally ended some road struggles while wearing orange. What I found odd was they did not wear orange tops for either game in Boston, even though both games were played during the day. Unless the orange top clashes with the home team's colored jersey, the Astros usually wear orange jerseys for day road games. The Astros are pretty consistent with a uniform schedule other than an occasional change-up here and there. As I mentioned above, they did wear the solid navy caps with the gray uniforms a couple of times this year when Lance McCullers pitched. They stuck to the orange at home on a Friday in the ALDS, and it will be interesting to see if that holds in the ALCS.

    I agree with this 100 percent. The squatchee on the orange cap needs to be blue to match the blue bill, too.

    They did it a couple of times in the regular season when Lance McCullers pitched. I don't really care which cap they wear with which jersey as long as they don't phase out either cap. I love the orange-billed caps (as you can see in my avatar). I've always thought the orange-billed cap would be better at home because of the orange headspoon on the home jerseys. Wearing the solid navys on the road would give them a fauxback look to the 1965-70 era.

    Agreed on both counts. I see a team with vests/sleeveless jerseys, and I start looking for the parents to bring the players their Capri Sun drinks when the game is over. Reeks of youth baseball.

    I'm happy they're wearing black jerseys at home all the time (or at least for this year). I could do without mono-black. I like the black pants with the white jerseys, but those black pants need some stripes like the 1976-85 pants. And I could also do without the horrific defense, but, sadly, that seems to be a Saints trademark at this point.

    Tecmo Bowl quirk. Giants and Jets have usually been represented as NYG and NYJ.

    I feel for you in Houston. I live in Louisiana, and we flooded last August. Half a gutted house, two bouts of red tape with the insurance and mortgage companies, a sale of the flooded house and seven months after the flood, we were able to buy a new house. And I know of other people who had it worse and a longer time before life got back to normal. We're better off now, but it took a long time to get there and I wouldn't wish a flood on anyone. Hope things work out for you.

    My alma mater, LSU, has traditionally worn white jerseys at home, save from the 12-season period when the NCAA mandated everyone wear dark jerseys at home, and now for a couple of non-conference home games. And I hate it. As a kid in the 1970s and early '80s, I rarely got to see LSU's purple jerseys. From 1974-80, Kentucky wore white at home during LSU's three visits there during that span so newspaper photos were all I got to see of the purple jerseys. I was glad when the NCAA made LSU start wearing purple at home in 1983. It's a sharp-looking jersey, and I'm of the belief all football teams should wear their dark jerseys at home. Throw in the fact I hate the Cowboys and that white at home is a Cowboys thing, and that's another reason I hate LSU wearing white jerseys at home, tradition be damned.

    I think this was because the Astros had been on the road and only had their navy BP jerseys and gray road pants since the previous series was Players Weekend. Not sure how, but they got their orange jerseys to Tampa for the third game of the series. I liked the BP jerseys with the gray road pants, and I've always wanted the Astros to have a navy jersey to occasionally wear on the road. Given they lost both of those games in that outfit, I suspect we won't see that look again. At least they went back to the orange/blue cap with the navy BP jerseys in the Sunday home game today. They wore the solid blue caps with the navy BP jerseys in a Sunday home game a few weeks back.

    Good manager, insufferable attention whore.
  13. Lions New Logo and Uniforms 2017

    I like the blue pants because I just don't like white jerseys with silver helmets and silver pants. I understand the symmetry, but it's too bland. The blue pants at least provide some color.

    Bears looked fine in the '70s and '80s wearing white shoes. Prefer white shoes for football and basketball, and those seem mainstream at this point, unlike baseball.
