  1. College Football Uniforms - 2017 Season

    OH, my goodness, that Oregon set is beautiful. I agree, the numerals may be not completely legible; perhaps make them yellow outlines in silver. But the helmet is a jewel, and all the details are phenomenal. Home run.

    I have been wrong before, but I do believe that it literally is not.

    Dark facemask for TAMU? Interesting. Haven't used that in a while, but I don't think it's their best look. I think the white facemask of the days of Quintin Coryatt was their best, but it seems Adidas is trying to make them distinct from Mississippi State.

    That... doesn't seem good.
  5. College Football Uniforms - 2017 Season

    You are correct on both counts. It looks better, and they wore it. 1998, vs. Virginia Tech and Pitt.

    I know Ohio State has a black stripe for (I believe) freshman players who hadn't earned/ deserved to have it removed. A stripe in practice isn't uncommon.

    Completely agree with you. When the most visible thing on a practice/game/any uniform is the emphasis of a brand over the school, that IS a problem. If the NFL did that,sure, they can market how they want. European soccer has survived with that for a while now. But don't lie about amatuerism and pretend that this is supposedly about the students-athletes (a term the NCAA coined to get out a paying a paralyzed player his workers' comp money, and then to get out of paying his widow-how disturbing is THAT?) when you put a corporation's logo on the side of the helmet. /end rant, now back to discussion of NCAA uniforms while pretending all is well with this systemic corruption.

    But we can't pay players because it would destroy the spirit of amateurism or something something.

    It looks like they forgot to paint the last quarter of the helmet and just left the primer on it!

    Nice going, tight end who turned an All-American defensive end loose without so much as touching him. SMH.

    Bingo. And as a Michigan fan, here is why I will look back at the Adidas era with revulsion (well, that and Dave Brandon).

    I wish they'd depart the Big Ten. (sorry)

    I really wish the Gators would say "no" to orange jerseys. I know they wore them years ago, but the Gator's fierce identity was build on teams which only wore blue. That's who they are. Clemson's orange helmets, orange jerseys. Florida's orange helmets, blue jerseys.

    I agree. Switch out the CarbonFibre helmet for a yellow gloss helmet, put the duck on the shoulders instead of the wings, and this would be about perfect. Maybe a change in the hue of green, but this is good for Oregon. Michigan, Alabama, Ohio State shouldn't have this, but variety with a purpose fits who Oregon is. It's their identity.
