  1. I doubt both Lawsons will wear the same number! I bet we'll be able to tell them apart...... because they will have large numbers that are different on their jerseys.
  2. Would there be any other option with an open bidding process for a public institution? Going with the lowest bidder would be illogical. Since all three companies are capable of providing the same support, the amount of the bid would be the only other variable to consider. Well technically contracts for the exact same service can contain several elements of compensation that aren't strictly cash which can be assigned different valuations depending on the terms. Also the cash payment terms of the contracts like lump sums or royalties can vary quite a bit which makes things less cut and dry. Correct. Commercials which promote your school, guaranteeing your school the latest and greatest over the other schools under the brand, as well as many other factors that would be what was in the manufacturers control. All of which any of the big three manufacturers could offer. As far as money the present value of whatever cash payouts to the school is what would be looked at by the AD when taking the monetary aspect into consideration. If all services are the same, then the AD would look at the present value of the cash payout. So the AD would not want to go for the worse monetary deal. Right?

  4. I just noticed there's an orange stripe in the rainbow stripes on the uniform, but there's no orange stripe in the rainbow on the helmet. That's going to really bother me.I agree! Four rainbow stripes on the helmet and five stripes at every other rainbow location on the jersey seems odd. Regardless of the presentation of the rainbow colors on the helmet( separated and outlined ), there is no reason to not be consistent with the colors and order of the stripes. Although historically 5 stripes have been used so have 4, with white thrown in instead of green on some of the green jerseys. This isn't an issue of 1 white stripe on the helmet and 2 white stripes on the pants. With an inconsistency through Hawaii history, why not clean it up and be consistent?
  5. I like that they aren't using the multiple unbalanced center stripes.....at least on this version of the helmet.
  6. I asked a student manager friend of mine. He said it might've been a last minute thing for the spring game. When I was at Auburn, the managers had a big iron press that they could add numbers or name plates to blank jerseys, or make up practice jerseys. Maybe UA gave them random fonts to play with. BTW the SEC logo is from 3-4 years ago. Yes, once again, the team wears old game uniforms for A-Day. They wear the 75th SEC patch as well. All the jerseys they have been wearing the past few years have been pre-2011 jerseys. Thanks for repeating what you had already stated. What I was saying is that the new logo had been used for 3 to 4 years so this was an old logo. Maybe this was confusing. If you had read others replies, you would have seen that I was just letting others know that it was an old logo not a new logo for this year, hence the BTW (or by the way). BTW isn't an attack toward you, just an add on to my post with a little extra info.

  8. Thank you for posting this in its own thread! I am one of many that do not like reading through dozens and dozens of pages to find what I am looking for. Since those that like to read mega threads know where to look for what they like. Threads that like this allow people like me to find what I want. That is the great thing about this website. It has been said in threads before, after people complain, that a new uniform is deserving of its own thread. Some people would be glad if there were only one thread and everything would be put there. I am not one of those people. So again THANK YOU!!!
  9. It's a fallacy to assume that red is only associated with demons and cannot be associated with angels. Red works. ... Well, it is now the 21st century, and red is clearly not the color most people associate with angels. If you are still having that much trouble understanding this, do a google image search for "angels" in one window, and a google image search for "devils" in another window. Your "angels" window will be almost entirely showing colors like white, light blue, and gold, for pages and pages. Your "devils" window will be almost entirely showing colors like red and black, for pages and pages. There is really no debate here. Red is clearly associated with devils much, much, much more than it is ever associated with angels, regardless of the few pics that were posted here (and whatever the **** century they are from). I think the Angels could look good (and more appropriate for their name) by switching to some sort of light blue, white, and yellow/gold color scheme. But I am not necessarily advocating that the Angels drop the red, because I think it is important for them to look different from the Dodgers, to keep their tradition, because I just plain think their current identity and uniforms look good, and because a color scheme that looks too "angelic" may come across as being not solid enough or "tough/agressive/intimidating/bold" enough. But at the same time, I can at least admit that it is silly for a team named the Angels to cover themselves in a color that is clearly understood to be the color of the devil by most people. As for the wordmark blending into the background, obviously people are talking about the red alternate, not the white home jersey. You do know that Satan or "The Devil" is one of the 1/3 of Heavenly angels that left Heaven. So if the devil is red, then red is an angelic color.
  10. Going for a Yankees look? Is that a plain white AU logo on the hat of the pinstripe set or is there a small orange border, and what color is the bill?
  11. http://m.reds.mlb.com/video/v35080541?partnerId=as_mlb_20140806_29128226 I like the overall idea, and the individual parts of the logo, but I don't like how the individual parts are all put together...I don't like the layers layout. 1)The top border around All Star Game goes behind the C, whereas All Star Game is in front. (This is amplified with the bottom going behind and then in front of the C.) 2)The two black cross bats can be seen in front of the back layer and going behind the C...Why does it not continue in the middle of the C?(It just goes away.) I think it should at least be showing below the All Star Game border and above the bottom of the C. 3)I don't like the wavy layout of All Star Game or CINCINNATI being at an angle.
  12. *shudders* Aside from it being asinine the Red Sox wear blue socks, that's not a terrible look on its own. I agree. The harder they try to look like the Yankees, the better they look. If only they would get rid of the red completely, they would have a great look....maybe lose the B on the hat, and the BOSTON across the chest, it would be solid!
  13. I like the logo, but I think it would look better if the dog was looking forward. Just my opinion. Overall, I would give it a solid B.
  14. I do wish they would make Under Armour create sleeve stripes that at least mimic a full sleeve wrap-around. The sleeve stripes have become almost a bar on the outside of the sleeve only. Even the fan replica jerseys are made with no attempt to wrap-around sleeve stripes. Also I wish they would fix the pant stripe at the bottom of the leg where it now comes to a point. I know this is all due to the cuts of the uniform, but if Russel Athletic could get this right then then I think UA could also.
  15. I took the survey. Will you post a link to the results that you find. Thanks. War Eagle!
