  1. College Football uniforms- 2018

    Disappointed Washington made the decision to go to Adidas. I was really hoping they would be the Pac-12 school to wear the Jordan brand in football, as well as in basketball. Likely it will eventually now go to either Arizona or USC which probably isn't going to excite people like me.
  2. Teams Due for a Rebrand

    Another NFL team that could use a refresher is the Baltimore Ravens. Yes the purple jerseys and numerical fonts were very cool in the late 90s and 2000s, but it is starting to look stale and past their prime. A majority would rather prefer black jerseys as their primaries, and white pants with just basic numbers (not too drastic). Use purple jerseys as alternate preferably worn on the road when the home team decides to wear white. Plus change their helmet logo (just a Raven without the B logo inside its head, just looks poorly executed). I would love to see gold pants return provided they use a gold helmet. However, I doubt that will happen. Still, its time for a new look, long overdue.
  3. Unpopular Opinions

    I miss the 1997-03 Timberwolves jersey, especially with the bigger NOBs on their unis. This was and still is their best look.
  4. College Football uniforms- 2018

    This is a classic and great modern look better than any other combo. It won three national titles (96. 06. 08). Just a giant head scratcher why Stricklin wants to add black unis or alternates when that color never remotely close to their actual true school colors.
  5. What was the best logo in your team's history?

    Without a doubt. Four of their five NBA titles won with this logo.

    At least the Gophers did one thing right on their new uniforms is that they got rid of the messy flywire that became way too of an eyesore.
  7. College Football uniforms- 2018

    So far the new looks of the upcoming 2018 season. Virginia: Gets an A in my books, they did nothing to go over the top. Just your basic color uniforms (navy, white, and orange alternate) and they look sharp. UVa could use a navy helmet, but I am not going to lose sleep if they decide to maintain their white helmets. Still a vast improvement of what they had in the past. Minnesota on the other hand gets a D. Yes they would have gotten an F if I wanted to. But at least they are trying to keep the school colors even if it is mismatched. The gray alternates are awful and just not even relate to their school colors, which doesn't make sense. And the helmet with the "row your boat" slogan is practically weak IMO. Wish they would be smart and go to a classic design, but with coach Fleck calling the shots, that will not happen anytime soon. Can't wait to see what Arizona and Iowa State has in store coming up. I would like to see the Iowa Hawkeyes also tweak their look, perhaps putting the numeric fonts they wore as an alternate against Ohio State as their regular home and away jerseys as well as changing their template to Vapor (the flywire needs to go its outdated). but keep the Steeler-like look.

    If these are true, then these are one of the best football unis in quite awhile love the orange jersey/navy pants combo. Still I would like to see UVA with a navy helmet so they can blend with the colors well. Still, even with the white helmet this is a definite upgrade (assuming these will be the official unis).
  9. NBA Changes 2018-19

    Sorry, that was up to the team to decide what to wear. Nike didn't twist their arm and say "You have to wear this, or have to wear that." The teams did not have to wear the "city edition" unis but decided to do so anyway. Why? Due to national exposure and marketing. That being said, I wouldn't say it was a disaster, but I do believe Nike still has work to do, like preventing jerseys to rip and so forth. IMO, they will figure it out because they are multi millionaire company and they want to maintain their #1 apparel company in the United States. Besides most of their unis are better than the 2010-17 Adidas rev 30 disaster we had to experience the last several seasons. Like I said, I am positive they will figure it out.
  10. NFL 2018 changes

    And do you really believe Reebok did any better with the Jets green? Doubtful. Gotta love the pea soup colors. (Sarcasm).
  11. NFL 2018 changes

    And nothing wrong with that. I always liked the Eagles in the midnight green, they look fantastic with those colors. I know the majority wants kelly green back and that's fine, but personally I am growing into the midnight green colors the Eagles are wearing. IMO, I still believe the Jets should be the team wearing kelly green like they did from 1978 through 1997 (being slightly modified beginning in 1990). That is one of the best and nicest uniforms of any NFL team in any era, never understood why they went back to the original dark green 1960s style look.
  12. Jacksonville Jaguars rumored for new uniforms in 2018

    Yet the Ravens looked a lot better with gold pants compared to the mono black or the black leotards they consistently wear. I think if teams have gold as a color they should at least match the color as far as their pants or maybe as an alternate jersey color. Teams like the Packers, Steelers, Saints, the throwback Rams uniforms etc have looked tremendous with gold pants with both as a home and away set. I think the Jaguars can do the same as well, besides it just dull and predictable with all white all the time, and I am never going to be a fan of it.
  13. Jacksonville Jaguars rumored for new uniforms in 2018

    That is true, dark gold wouldn't blend very well. Hopefully make it light but not athletic gold.
  14. Jacksonville Jaguars rumored for new uniforms in 2018

    Here's what I think the Jaguars should do: 1. Go to back to a black helmet obviously, if not a black helmet go gold!! 2. White jersey with teal numbers and a black or a gold trim. Teal jersey with white numbers and black trim. And an occasional gold alternate (to replace black) with white numerals and teal trim. Use mono black for Color Rush games. 3. Scrap the white pants, we have too many teams these days relying with white pants. Replace them with gold pants (like the New Orleans Saints). Imagine a teal jersey/gold pants look it would be awesome and unique. 4. Use black pants for a few of the games, but not as often in the past.i Do this and the Jaguars will swing for the fences and hit a homerun. Sorry, that's a different sport I'm bad.
  15. Best Almost Super Bowl Matchups

    How about 1980 Cowboys vs Chargers (both wore white at home that year, but Dallas would have been the designated home team that year so obviously they would have worn white). And 1987, Vikings vs Browns (although the Browns the designated home team that year would have worn white because they wore white at home all year). And finally 2000 Vikings vs Ravens (an all purple Super Bowl) although the Ravens didn't play in Minnesota until 2009 so sorry no photos so here is the best scenario.
