I've never understood the nostalgia for the old Pittsburgh colors. I agree that their current uniforms are the best they've ever worn, and if you're going to change anything, just make the helmet logo consistent with the collar logo. Simple. Only other suggestion would be to invert the stripes so that they're G-B-W-B-G.I'm indifferent to which wordmark I like more, though. I see nothing wrong with the PITT wordmark and like it in a vacuum, but I also like the script. In college football, there's pretty much no way any team can wear those colors and not be immediately compared to Notre Dame. They own navy and gold. I'd put Pitt back into royal blue and mustard gold because, in my mind, that's their colors, and they're pretty unique. I wouldn't necessarily say that. The gold numbers and striping help differentiate Pitt from ND, as do the white and blue pants options. Now, Navy before they switched to UA? There I can see your point. Plain gold - plain blue/white - plain gold with white and blue numbers? And it was especially bad considering we play each other every year. I've honestly never thought Notre Dame when looking at Pitt. Sure the colors are similar, but I've, at least, never made that connection. If you read the origin stories of many schools and their colors, it's pretty interesting to see how many of them are based on other schools/copy cat jobs. My understanding for Ohio (green and white) is that we had a coach circa 1900 who came from Dartmouth and instituted the colors. I believe Ole Miss chose Harvard crimson and Yale navy blue because of their respect for the academics/tradition? Not saying that there is a similar situation with ND and Pitt, but definitely a rich history of "borrowing" from other colleges.
