    College Football uniforms- 2018

    They are definitely a bit too subtle. They’re pretty much invisible from afar, but they do look pretty sharp up close when the light hits.

    Stanford’s white jerseys have been updated to include the black number outlines that they added to the red jerseys: Also, here’s a couple on-field looks at the Ducks: Still would’ve liked to have seen the yellow helmets and/or pants, but this all-green combo really is a nice and clean look for them. Easily the best of their new set IMO.

    They’re going all-white:

    College Football uniforms- 2018

    After all the speculation, the Ducks are going all-green again on Saturday rather than going all-yellow again like what was reported: I have to say I’m a bit dissapointed that they didn’t decide to switch things up a bit more and go with yellow/green/yellow or something similar since Gameday is in town and since this is a primetime ABC game. That said, if they were going to repeat a combo from the first three weeks, I’m glad they’re repeating the all-green rather than the all-yellow so that they can rep both of the school colors on the national stage. Should be a pretty good looking game overall.

    He’s now followed that up by saying this: Could just be a smoke screen, or it could mean that they really are going with something other than all-yellow.

    According to the Ducks’ Assistant AD of Marketing and Sales, the uniforms for Saturday’s game will be released tomorrow, presumably in the morning. I’m still holding out hope for something other than all-yellow again

    Yeah, that’s just a photoshop error in the thumbnail image. The picture of #9 correctly shows what they’ll be wearing Saturday, as their black jerseys have a double outline, with gold on the inside and white on the outside:

    For the first three games this season, the Ducks released their uniforms on social media on Thursday at 10am, but so far this morning they haven’t made any announcement about what they’re wearing this Saturday. That coupled with the fact that several players were wearing the yellow and green game cleats in practice yesterday really leads me to believe that they might be changing things up and not going all-yellow again like what’s been reported. As I said yesterday, I’m thinking they could go yellow/green/yellow or green/green/yellow (possibly even yellow/green/green) instead of repeating the all-yellow.

    Oregon State going all-black vs. Arizona: So far this season they’ve gone all-white for both of their road games, and now all-black for both of their home games.

    College Football uniforms- 2018

    Yep, I posted the link to this article on here yesterday. As I said in my post, I’ll believe it when I see it in regards to them not mixing and matching at all this season. Also, they will for sure have a fifth uniform that hasn’t been released yet, and possibly a sixth as well, so it won’t just be those four combos that you posted. They’re known for pulling out some surprises, so you never really know what to believe and expect from them.

    Washington State going white/white/anthracite at USC:

    College Football uniforms- 2018

    I’m still somewhat expecting mono-yellow myself, but I do find it a bit odd and frankly hard to believe that they’d go with the yellow and green cleats with the yellow set this time around rather than the grey and yellow cleats that were unveiled, and worn with it the first time. I could be overthinking it, but the cleats they wear each game almost always tie in with the rest of the uniform, so I’m thinking there’s a decent possibility of them going with one of the combos I posted above (or possibly even yellow/green/green) since the green accents on those cleats would clash with the black accents on the yellow jerseys and pants.

    If you watch this video, you can see several Oregon players wearing the yellow and green game cleats in practice earlier today: Generally the players don’t wear their game cleats during the week unless that’s what the team will be wearing on the weekend, so it seems like they’ll be wearing the yellow and green cleats this Saturday. Since it’s been reported that they’re wearing the all-yellow uniforms again, this could just mean they’re swapping out the grey and yellow cleats that they wore in the season opener for the yellow and green cleats that they wore when they went all-green, but I’m not so sure about that. The grey and yellow cleats go much better with the yellow uniforms than the yellow and green cleats since the uniforms are yellow with black accents (and silver wings on the helmets), so I think this might be a sign that they actually are switching things up this weekend. They could be going all-green again, but since the fans are supposed to wear yellow, I’m thinking it’s more likely that we could see one of these combos:

    NBA Changes 2018-19

    Yep, it’s now official: After holding out all of last season, it felt inevitable that they’d announce a jersey advertiser at some point before or during this coming season. At least the patch on both the white and black jerseys blends in fairly well (though I could do without the green), but holy hell does it stick out like a sore thumb on the red jersey. The Blazers should’ve stipulated that the text had to be black on the red jersey, because it looks horrible as is with it being the only white on the jersey.

    Supposedly the Blazers will be announcing Biofreeze, a cold therapy pain relief product, as their first ever jersey advertiser. That would obviously help to explain the significance of the ice block. Also, the Blazers put out these teaser graphics on social media earlier today: Notice the pattern on the bottom of those images. That same pattern is used by Biofreeze in their recently redesigned product labels:

    Interesting article from The Athletic on the Ducks’ new uniform set: https://theathletic.com/534059/2018/09/19/oregon-uniform-combinations-cutting-back-2018-season/ Some good insight there into the design process and inspiration behind the streamlined and simple look. The article also claims that Oregon will indeed only be going with the monochrome combos this season, and that they’ll be going all-yellow again this Saturday against Stanford. There’s been speculation and rumors about that since the new uniforms were unveiled, so this just adds to that. Personally, I’ll believe that when I see it. It very well could be true, but they’re known for pulling out some surprises, so it wouldn’t shock me at all if they ended up doing some mixing and matching for a few games (and we already know they’ll at least have one more uniform this season, if not two).

    Another teaser, this time from Dame Lillard:

    NBA Changes 2018-19

    It doesn’t necessarily hint to a new jersey, especially since it is just their regular black jersey inside the ice block. It could be anything really. Speculation from people on Twitter has ranged from an announcement about NHL coming to Portland (this seems like the least practical thing that this could be, and frankly it’d almost be too obvious with the whole ice block thing), to news about a jersey retirement, to an announcement of a jersey advertiser, etc. it could even be some sort of ticket promotion or something like that. They followed the original tweet up with this a little while ago:

    2018/19 Soccer Kits

    Sport broke the news on this earlier today: https://www.sport.es/es/noticias/barca/revolucion-proxima-camiseta-del-barca-7041112 These two media outlets have been pretty reliable in the past in regards to Barça kit news, so there’s a pretty good chance it’s legit (the final product would likely have some subtle differences, though). The club often sets out checkered flags in the seats inside Camp Nou, so if this turns out to be true then that’ll likely be the Nike speak for why they went that route:

    Here’s some better shots of the Ducks’ black and neon set in action yesterday: I thought they looked pretty sharp for the most part, though I think they would’ve popped a bit more during a night game under the lights. The helmets were far and away my favorite part, as I thought the glossy black wings looked really nice against the matte black shell. The rest of the uniform looked pretty solid as well though, and I especially liked how the inline in the numbers was a bit more prominent than on the green and yellow jerseys. Overall though, after seeing all three of the colored uniform sets in the first three games, I’d have to put both the green and yellow versions ahead of these black ones. The green ones looked the best overall, with the yellows not far behind, and the blacks just a little bit further behind. We’ll likely get our second look at the yellow set (possibly with a different helmet) this next weekend in the ABC primetime game against Stanford. Also, if this tweet (which has since been deleted) is to be believed, then the Ducks will have a Jordan Brand alternate uniform to be revealed at some point, and a second black uniform to be worn for the UCLA game on Nov. 3rd: I’ve seen and/or heard these rumors a few different places and from a few different sources, so this doesn’t come as a huge surprise. I’m assuming these are two seperate alternates, but it wouldn’t shock me if the two were actually one and the same. I guess time will tell, though. It’s definitely something to look out for as the season progresses.

    First on-field looks at the Ducks’ black and neon set. My first impression is that they look pretty nice, especially the helmets. I love how the shiny black wings contrast with the matte black shell.
