  1. College Football Uniforms - 2017 Season

    I'd upgrade that to the Yearly Boo. I don't under stand how a school with the at least as high of a profile as Arizona has could get away with looking like they currently do. I know that there are a lot of unis that come out which are fuglier overall, but they at least make sense in that they're usually just trying to be swaggy for the recruits and still, technically, look "professional." The Arizona jerseys are special in that they look as though they were designed by a blind person who had someone describe to them what a football uniform is supposed to look like. Or maybe like someone asked a four-year old to draw in crayon how they think that a blue and red football uniform could appear. It's elements just look so head-scratchingly strange and mishapen. Its almost surreal that this could make it past anyone's drawing board. Don't even get me started on the mind-numbingly disjointed mix-&-match color combos. Coming from someone who is forced to witness the Jacksonville Jaguars on a weekly basis, I REALLY hate these uniforms.

    That uniform looks way too good on its own for it to be trotted out as a one-off by a green and gold team that has zero room for it in its brand.
  3. Wow, that's a rare combo for them, isn't it? I feel like I can only recall one time that they've busted it out other than that one local commercial with Rob Bironas. Anyways, I'll be damned if that isn't their best combo. Should be neat to see live tomorrow. It's gonna be a bright matchup for sure.
  4. NFL 2017 changes?

    Titans are changing in 2018 by word of their owner. Browns stated that they could change up their unis in time for the 2020 season when the 5-year window on their current unis closes (main gripe from the team was about the number material). Rams are changing in 2020 when they move into their new stadium (was 2019 but got moved back due to inclement weather hindering the stadium's progress). No actual word on the Dolphins or Chargers, though the Dolphins' 5-year window does end in time for 2018. However, they'd have to have applied for new ones by now and I don't think they're tired of their current set yet, and the LAC have yet to verbally commit to any sort of change such as to, for instance, powder blue as a primary. Noteworthy is that the Nike-NFL deal will last through the 2019 season (started in 2012 and was originally supposed to go for five years before a short extension). I wouldn't think that the league has any major issues so far with Nike's work (aside from having a hard time with creating greens and templates without sweat boxes, though both seem to have been fixed), though it strikes me as a bit sus that the extension they did seems so short and that the deal it could potentially be over by the time the Rams unveil their uniforms. How would Nike handle that? Would they pressure LAR to rush the roll-out if they knew that they wouldn't be the supplier around to unveil their design? That's all the news we have for any changes whatsoever.

    Freaking dang it, here I was thinking these would be so brilliant paired with their road pants against the Gators classic home ensemble...
  6. Lions New Logo and Uniforms 2017

    I'd have to dig through the thread for it, but Colorwerx did confirm that they did lighten the Honolulu blue.

    I believe that the ones complaining about the Jumpman being a "basketball logo" are either overreacting or having a difficult time putting their frustration with the logo's use into words. MJ's legacy is not simply as one of the greatest basketball players of all time, but as one of the greatest sportsmen of all time, and respect and admiration for his legacy are universal across all sports. It's a sports logo and I do not see the tiny basketball included as making it illegitimate for use in other sports. It isn't "ridiculous" or "awkward." What there should be concern about is the door that the Jumpman's use may open for other corporate entities (though Red Bull has already been doing crazy stuff like this for a longg time). We'll see.
  8. College Football Uniforms - 2017 Season

    Aw, count me a bit disappointed here. The green jersey would be perfect if only it was paired with white pants, and the black jersey could have been a rather classy edition of BFBS if they had only used their normal white helmets and pants with it. As it is, the addition of the green jerseys feels kinda "meh" and the black uniform just needs to be thrown in the bin with the other terrible Miami alts that Adidas farted out in the last few years. (At least they're no '305 Ice,' though. I will forever hold contempt for '305 Ice.')

    It's not like this is the first time that a supplier has taken the chance to over represent their brand on some practice uniforms.

    It's not as nutty as you'd think when you consider that two of those home games (Northern Colorado and UAB) are cupcake games, so if the LSU game hadn't been changed, there would be 4 SEC (plus FSU) home games and 4 SEC away games (not counting the Georgia game in Jax and the special Arlington game against Michigan). A lot of major schools have schedules like this, I'd imagine.

    I've probably written about this at length several times before, but my school is so stinking close to having a perfect identity that it is infuriating. They already had a one until they decided to shake things up just a little bit a few years ago. All of their options matched beautifully and they couldn't look bad (except when they occasionally came out in wild Nikefied one-offs) BUT they bungled it all up in 2013 when they updated the number font and added their orange options. These would have been welcome changes to me if they would have just done it right. The non-italicized version of the basketball team's font that they idiotically use looks cheap as all heck, and they messed up on their orange jerseys the one thing that they had done so well for so long, which was matching all of the stripes to the helmet (How else could they have consistently pulled off the different colored helmet/jersey/pants look so well?). Don't get me started on the mess that is our recent white helmets. Believe me, I'd love to have white helmets in the lineup that nod to the blue 'F' helmets of old, but they just tripped all over themselves on this effort. I believe that this identity could be better than perfect and do no wrong if they matched the stripes to the orange helmet on all of their options (blue/white/orange jerseys/pants), had a white helmet with just 'F's on the sides and the right stripe (perhaps a blue facemask), and used a half-decent custom font if not just the old simple athletic font. However, as many things can be for someone who frequents these boards, they are so close yet so far away. As I type this, I could just walk right up to our athletic director's desk and demand what I believe to be simple changes and look like a total kook since absolutely none of this matters in the grand scheme.

    His mistake I can understand since it is related to a uniform featured in a recent pic of a new recruit. How the other guy somehow dug up two year-old photos of a two year-old uniform and believed them to be the released photos of a brand new uniform that every uni-freak on these boards had somehow missed? That is what has left me baffled.
  13. Binghamton Devils New Look

    Why is this guy wearing tightie-whities on his head?
  14. College Football Uniforms - 2017 Season

    They certainly rival these rags that Indiana rolled out vs. Purdue two years ago in the "confoundingly illegible" class.

    The black Miami jersey looks great to me, personally. I'll gladly take a simple BFBS in the team's regular brilliant design as long as it keeps crap like "305 Ice" or whatever else that Adidas could possibly come up with from terrorizing a football field near you.
