    Fun With Flags!!!!

    That's a really cool concept. It's like a modern version of the British Empire slapping Union Jacks onto the canton of everyone's flag.

    College Football uniforms- 2018

    Nebraska wore a throwback uniform in 2009 that mimicked the 1960s look (300th Consecutive Sellout Game). But no, the jersey numbers were always a rounded serif type of font while the helmets were sans-serif. Side note, Nebraska first wore an alternate uniform in 1923 when they hosted Oklahoma. The modern notion of specific Home & Away uniforms wasn't exactly a science back then. Since both teams normally wear red, Nebraska opted for blue jerseys out of courtesy to the visiting Sooners.

    Best Cities to place fictional sports teams?

    Population density of the US means pro teams (and big cities) tend to lean to the East. Therefore, I like using Western cities like Salt Lake, Vegas, Albuquerque, El Paso, Santa Fe, Portland, and so forth. Also, I'm a sucker for Mexican cities. We already have a handful of "US" pro teams in Canada (Raptors, Blue Jays) and that's not counting the NHL. I figure if basketball or baseball (especially baseball) can thrive in Canada, why not an expansion team in Mexico City or Monterrey? Or for that matter, all of Latin America/Caribbean, like San Juan, San Jose, Port-au-Prince, Kingston, Havana, etc. I mean if these are fictional leagues, travel considerations aren't a thing, so why not a hoops squad in Jamaica or Mexico?

    Orioles will be the first pro team to wear Braille jerseys

    This thread is full of unforseen comedy.

    The Packers manage to look good. Green and Yellow doesn't force you into crappy choices.

    Oregon seems to be going full hipster this year. Uniforms so boring they're ironic or meta or whatever the kids say who enjoy Pabst while finger snapping at poetry slams.

    Really hoping they get a secondary mascot that looks like Groot.

    It's a good look, no question. But it's also Week 1. Still got a few games left to pick from.

    Agreed. Seeing a lot of people "warming up" to them on social media. Might as well be warming up to a root canal or IRS audit. Those uniforms are horrible any way you slice it.

    I like the black pants but the gold numbers don't look good. UCF has a lighter, almost cream colored gold and it doesn't separate from the white enough.

    I know some people liked it, but Minnesota looked terrible in all white. They needed to have a maroon helmet and either maroon or gold pants. All white is a look I associate with Wisconsin. Looking like your biggest divisional rival? I mean, let's just march out Alabama in Blue and Orange.

    Northwestern's white helmet needs to die in a fire. The oversized cat logo (no N) is horrid.
