  1. College Football Uniforms - 2017 Season

    They are identical. Both schools use Pantone 201 for their crimson color.
  2. College Football Uniforms - 2017 Season

    @upperV03 Ahhh! Never noticed that before. I assumed they were the same. @BlackBolt3 Yeah, I saw the few pieces of fan gear that had them, but the longer Nike went without some kind of acknowledgement the more I doubted. Edit: Right on cue, sideline gear is added to Nike.com, with the diamond swoosh: https://store.nike.com/us/en_us/pd/cfp-elite-clemson-mens-polo/pid-12328639/pgid-12376347
  3. College Football Uniforms - 2017 Season

    Has anybody heard anything about Nike doing diamond quest uniforms for the playoffs this year? In the past, they've released promo images by now, but I've not seen anything. It's possible that they don't feel like it's "newsworthy" anymore, each year the promo material has gotten less and less. With Oregon wearing diamond swooshes during the regular season, I wondered if the days of the diamond swoosh being used in the CFP were over...
  4. NCAA Basketball 2017-18 New Uniforms

    Sooners chose to wear their PK80 uniforms against USC at Staples. Yet to wear their standard road set this year.

    Very interesting. I heard a rumor that Jordan Brand’s goal was to have a presence in each major region of the country, with Florida being one potential destination, and another being someone out West, like Arizona or USC.

    I know that the Thunder specifically said they'll wear their blue icon edition uniforms at home for nationally televised games. Their reasoning was so that the "Oklahoma City" on the chest got more air time.

    Ohio State seems to prefer wearing their alternates against Michigan. Buckeyes have worn alternates against Michigan in 2009, 2010, 2012, 2013, 2015, 2016, and now 2017.
  8. Oklahoma making the switch to Jordan Brand in 2018

    I wrote that Medium post about the Sooners potential changes, thanks for sharing AAWagner. The font may or may not actually be changing on the uniforms. As I mentioned in the article, it's everywhere in their new facilities so it seems likely that it could show up on the uniforms too. But, it's totally possible the uniforms will look exactly the same, but with a jumpman instead of a swoosh. I think this year will be the last for the bring the wood alternates, or anything like them. OU fans are pretty split on that alternate set, but I think the general consensus is negative. I think wood grain could be incorporated into the future, but not like it has been. That said, recruits seem to like them, When they visit and have their picture made, about 40% choose the alternate jerseys. I definitely don't think OU will move away from alternates altogether. I think the most likely route for alternates would be fauxbacks. Something similar to how tOSU executed the Chic Harley era uniforms. I think honoring their tradition, versus trying to be "modern" feels more right for Oklahoma.
  9. College Football Uniforms - 2017 Season

    Lots of rumors swirling about Oklahoma making the switch to Jordan Brand for basketball and football. Announcement could be coming as soon as tomorrow. I wrote about it a few days ago: https://medium.com/@SoonerTracker/lets-talk-about-jumpman-7bf1059a7365
  10. NBA Changes 2017-18

    I’m surprised by the amount of love the Thunder’s jersey is getting. The color scheme doesn’t work...I’m not against gray in principle but there’s not enough contrast between it and the yellow, light blue, and orange. It needs a darker color to set it off. Aside from that, the design takes all the worst parts of the logo, the random lines and the the off-balanced wordmark, and amplifies them. When compared to their Statement jersey, this one feels like a huge miss.

    The days of associating thick + embroidery with quality are gone. All about being thin + light.
  12. NBA Changes 2017-18

    There's a Harden one too.
  13. NBA Changes 2017-18

    Not surprising, but confirmation that the Swingman jerseys will not have cut-off arm trim like their on-court counterparts.
  14. NBA Changes 2017-18

    Nike has always been about innovation/technology first, and appearance second. If there's is a functional benefit to the athlete (liike the scapula seams, or angled cut on the shorts, etc), that takes priority over appearance to them.
  15. Cleveland Cavaliers New Uniforms

    Two best things from the Cavs reveal: The angled side panel design looks much better angled than the leak mockups where it appeared to be curved. Dazzle fabric.
