    THIS. So to eliminate confusion they decided to get rid of unis which emulate a famous Rose Bowl winning team... in favor of new unis that will invariably lead to confusion with another Rose Bowl winning school which, by the way, is also in their conference?

    GT football jersey news from the AJC: “We’ll have unveils in the near future, so I don’t want to steal any thunder from those,” he said in the e-mail. “However, I will say that Adidas been working very closely with Georgia Tech to make sure that, from an aesthetic standpoint, we’re honoring tradition, history and what makes Georgia Tech so special, but also pushing that DNA and look and feel into the future by making the uniforms more innovative, cutting-edge and ‘cool’ for the athletes that will be wearing them on the field of play.” Article on Georgia Tech Switch To Adidas

    Certainly. See Georgia Tech and LSU.

    Agree to disagree. I would flip the number colors on this (not my work) but it would maintain the consistency with the striping used on the blue and white jerseys and pants and the helmet.

    They also should have fixed the striping on the orange jersey/pants. It drives me nuts that orange jerseys, and, as of last season I think, the orange pants don't follow the helmet's orange-blue-white-blue-orange striping but instead adopt the incongruous blue-orange-white-orange-blue striping/number outlines. Such a small fix that would look SO much better.

    Downgrade due to the psuedo-toilet collar tire stripes on the shoulders, the "fierce" Oregon rip-off numerals and the always craptastic vertical wordmark in lieu of stripes on the pants, which they appear to have taken a step further by making asymmetrical .

    You now can see the two white helmets, the away jersey and backs of new orange and blue unis. Wish they would drop the numbers on one side of the helmets in favor of symmetrical sabres. White jerseys look like the blue numbers have a white fabric outline/bevel, the orange and blue don’t have a contrasting color outline on the white numbers.
  10. Tampa Tarpons have been revealed,
  11. I thought for sure that the Gwinnett Stripers name change created the most significant potential for embarrassing on-air reporting mishaps in all of MiLB. Thank you, Tampa Tarpons, for proving me wrong.
  12. Over/under on how long it will take for a local news reporter to inadvertently call the team the Gwinnett Strippers on air? A cross-promotion with the Clermont Lounge would be hilarious as well.
  13. They have to go with Fatbacks. Brandiose just did the design for the inaccurately named "Down East Wood Ducks" and it would be too confusing to have two forest-related fowl mascots in the same league and region of North Carolina. Of course, if I'm wrong then expect something like this:
  14. If Portland gets a team, and they don't go with Lagers (despite the support for the Timbers, I would suspect that "Loggers" would turn off some of the crunchier folks in the metro area due to deforestation), and Beavers isn't picked, my solution would be... The Portland Pennyfarthings (Pens or P-Things for short). It would check all the boxes: 1) Locally appropriate? What other major US city has built a $135m bridge for bikes and other non-car traffic? 2) Hipster-friendly? See the mustachioed gentleman below. 3) Unique? I would think so, and it has the twee Portland ethos going for it. 4) Logo friendly? If you just rotate the bike it sort of looks like a "P" formed by the larger wheel and the frame. Make the spokes into baseball bats and you're 2/3rds of the way there. "Peddlers" as in bicycle peddling would be a much safer, albeit lamer, option too.
