  1. College Football uniforms- 2018

    So, like a Tide Pod alternate?
  2. College Football uniforms- 2018

    Unless they get flecked up.
  3. College Football uniforms- 2018

    That might just be promotional material, though. It's not unheard of for schools to send out photoshopped/photochopped pictures in their recruiting packages, only to unveil a totally different look later that offseason.
  4. College Football uniforms- 2018

    I like everything about that set except the number font. I also get that they are also replicating that stripe pattern in the number keylines but wish they'd just go with a solid white number or possibly an orange keyline without the blue space in between.
  5. College Football uniforms- 2018

    Yup. Best Gators look is Orange/Blue/White for sure. They have the Auburn problem of stripe inconsistency though. Fix the spacing and it's damn near perfect.
  6. What was the best logo in your team's history?

    Nebraska has had the same primary logo for 40-ish years: But regarding our secondary logos, I've always been partial to the old-school Herbie Husker (1974-1991) opposed to the more modern Herbie (2004-present)
  7. College Football uniforms- 2018

    At least the Steelers have the decency to forget one side of their helmet.
  8. Team Color Changes

    No logo, but Penn State was originally Pink and Black instead of Navy and White.
  9. College Football uniforms- 2018

    And the chrome helmets are supposed to represent the bags of gold the Twin Cities rake in from Mall of America?
  10. College Football uniforms- 2018

    I feel the same way about when schools do a big "support the troops" thing. It feels contrived, fake and put-on. Those demonstrations usually have almost nothing to do with benefitting the cause and everything to do with circlejerking the sponsor.
  11. College Football uniforms- 2018

    I agree, but wonder how far it can go. Minnesota is already a solid team in a great P5 conference. The only place to move up to is a top tier P5 team like Texas, USC, Penn State, etc. And the big thing about that upper tier is that they got there because of their traditions. I just can't see Notre Dame or Clemson jumping on Fleck's bandrowboat. Maybe a "counterculture" school like Oregon or Maryland might work, but that's a small pool and mostly a lateral move. I feel like the only schools that will put up with his circlejerking are G5 or lower end P5.

    "We're connecting them all together...no, literally. Like we just threw all the uniforms in a blender and this popped out. It's the fabric version of a KFC Bowl." If only Minnesota had some pre-existing, unique phrase they could have used instead of "Row the Boat." Something that really conveyed that Ski-U-Mah feeling, you know?
  13. College Football uniforms- 2018

    Let's put it this way. How would you feel if Bowling Green, Utah, Florida and Ohio State all had a semi truck sticker on their helmets because Urban Meyer liked to say "Keep On Truckin?" That's totally made up but shows the level of Fleck's disregard for his employer's brand. I guarantee if you redesigned the brand identity of each company you worked at so it met your personal mantra, you wouldn't last long.

    This reminds me of the time I went to the tire shop with my uncle. He was getting new tires for his Mustang and this wannabe kid comes in and gets giant wheels with thin tires installed on his mid-90s Monte Carlo. The tech finishes up and the kid goes, "nah dog, I wann 'em thinner. Thinner! Like bologna wrappers, yo!"
  15. College Football uniforms- 2018

    Not a bad look for the Irish.
  16. College Football uniforms- 2018

    Fixed it for ya.
  17. College Football uniforms- 2018

  18. College Football uniforms- 2018

    Floyd of Rosedale is gonna look like a Hawkeye scrimmage this year. In other news, Nebraska and Wisconsin will play Iowa twice.
  19. Logos associated with failure.

    They're basically Bing.
  20. Shoney's has an updated logo

    There were Shoney's in Nebraska back around 1990, but they all closed or got turned into Perkins, Denny's, etc. Not sure how far west they went but Nebraska seems a bit removed from their core locations in TN and AR.
  21. The New XFL

    He went from Errol Flynn to Vin Diesel. Looks good, I like the update and the scar.
  22. Changes to Titans uniforms in 2018 are 'not minor'

    There are no chrome helmets.
  23. The New XFL

    Remove that dude's pupils. 5-second MS Paint job:
  24. College Football uniforms- 2018

    So.... Tide Pod helmets?
  25. Evolving Uniform Opinions

    I used to like Black For Black's Sake uniforms. Actually, at the time it hadn't quite become BFBS. It was more Black Because It's Cool. Few teams had black alternates and they generally looked decent enough. And then it devolved into unmitigated chaos and my opinion shifted.
