  1. NBA Changes 2017-18

    Nice matchup in Miami tonight:
  2. College Football Uniforms - 2017 Season

    Except their school colors are crimson and gray, not crimson and white. And they should always feature both of their colors prominently when playing their biggest rival.
  3. College Football Uniforms - 2017 Season

    Wazzu finally going with both the gray helmets AND pants this season for this weekend’s Apple Cup game: They got it right by going with the gray helmets and pants, but they screwed it up a little bit by going with the white decals and facemasks instead of crimson.
  4. College Football Uniforms - 2017 Season

    Their players were wearing the white game helmets in practice today, so all-orange is out. Chances are it won’t be color on color unless OSU goes white/orange/white, but that seems pretty unlikely to me. Probably the best we can hope for is white/white/orange (although I wouldn’t be surprised if they go all-white like they did two years ago in the CW): If they were to go that route, it’d make for a pretty similar matchup to the 2014 edition, albeit without as much yellow and orange:
  5. College Football Uniforms - 2017 Season

    A good look, and one I was expecting them to use sometime this season, but I would’ve much preferred the yellow pants to balance out the green and yellow a bit more for the Civil War. Frankly I would’ve just preferred it if they had used this combo last week and saved the yellow/green/yellow, or even green/green/yellow, for this week’s rivalry game. Also, I’m pretty sure the monochromatic yellow duck head nose bumpers are new, as I don’t recall seeing them before. They definitely haven’t been used this season, and I don’t believe they’ve been used in past seasons, either.
  6. NCAA Basketball 2017-18 New Uniforms

    New gray uniforms for Stanford, complete with the logo in place of a wordmark on the jersey, and the wordmark running down the side of the shorts:
  7. College Football Uniforms - 2017 Season

    Definitely possible, especially since they’ve already worn the yellow pants four times this season, whereas they’ve only worn the green pants twice so far. Plus, they took the team photo in the fall in the green jersey/pants combo, so it’d be a bit odd for them to not actually wear that combo this year. I think they’ll definitely be in the green helmets since they’ve only used them once this year, but I’m hopeful they’ll go green/green/yellow as opposed to all-green, as I much prefer a more even distribution of the two colors for the Civil War.
  8. College Football Uniforms - 2017 Season

    Since the Ducks have now gone yellow/green/yellow twice already this season, and since they’ve only worn the green helmets once, I’m hoping they break out the green/green/yellow combination for this weekend’s Civil War game: It would be somewhat of a callback to what they wore in the 2013 edition of the rivalry, a game that turned out to be one of the most interesting and exciting Civil Wars in recent memory, both in terms of the uniforms and the play on the field.
  9. NBA Changes 2017-18

    You have these flipped. The Association uniforms are the whites, and the Icon uniforms are the primary colored sets. Also, Phoenix wore their Classic edition at home for the season opener against Portland, so technically they’ve worn their Association uniforms in all but one of their home games thus far.
  10. College Football Uniforms - 2017 Season

    This is the 6th consecutive season where both teams are wearing their home uniforms against each other. The last time they didn’t go color on color was in 2011, when the Bruins wore these special all-white uniforms:
  11. College Football Uniforms - 2017 Season

    FIFY. This matchup has always looked great when they’ve gone color on color, but especially now with UCLA’s new and improved UA set.
  12. College Football Uniforms - 2017 Season

    First look at the Ducks on the field: Unlike what the release images showed, the players are wearing the green and black cleats rather than the white and yellow Doernbecher cleats. The green cleats go better with this combo anyways, so I’d say that’s a positive change. With the cleat switch, the only difference with this combo from what they wore in the season opener is the logo on the nose bumper. For this game, it’s the Duck logo, whereas in the season opener it was the green ‘O’.

    Video giving some more looks at today’s Oregon combo:
  14. College Football Uniforms - 2017 Season

    That is one of the biggest examples of hyperbole I’ve ever seen on these boards. There have been numerous CFB uniforms in recent years that have been much, much worse than that.
  15. College Football Uniforms - 2017 Season

    ^Yep, they’re doing their best Rams impression:
  16. College Football Uniforms - 2017 Season

    ^Here ya go: Since we can’t upload images directly on here anymore, you probably won’t be able to see it.
  17. College Football Uniforms - 2017 Season

    I was thinking the Ducks would go with the green pants this week and save the yellow/green/yellow combo for the Civil War, but instead they’ll be breaking out the traditional home combo for tomorrow’s game against Arizona: This is the same combo they wore in the season opener, except this time they’re going with the white and yellow Doernbecher cleats instead of the green, black, and yellow cleats.
  18. College Football Uniforms - 2017 Season

    Oregon State will be reprising their full “11 Strong” alternates for Senior Day this Saturday:
  19. NBA Changes 2017-18

    The Celtics will be in green at home again tonight, this time against the white-clad Warriors. Since the Warriors’ blue uniforms are heavy with yellow accents, I would’ve liked to have seen the Dubs go with those instead of the whites. Royal blue vs. kelly green can be tricky in terms of contrast, as we’ve already seen a couple of times this season with the Celtics, but I think the yellow accents on the Warriors’ blue uniforms would’ve made it much more tolerable and appealing.
  20. NBA Changes 2017-18

    This shouldn’t really come as a surprise, as this has kind of been their MO with throwbacks in recent years. They unveil them and then go on a streak of wearing them for nearly every game. Eventually they’ll slow it down, and by the time they do they’ll be able to wear the red Statement uniforms, and then shortly thereafter the City uniforms as well.
  21. NCAA Basketball 2017-18 New Uniforms

    Uniforms and shoes for next week’s PK80 Invitational: Men: Women: Shoes: The shoes are black with iridescent logos because of Phil Knight’s affinity for wearing all-black outfits with sunglasses, and supposedly that’s also why black is incorporated into each team’s uniforms. Here’s the Nike press release: https://news.nike.com/news/ncaa-pk80-uniforms-basketball
  22. NBA Changes 2017-18

    Color on color game in Miami last night, with the Heat in their throwbacks again: My favorite matchup of the night was Lakers/Sixers, though. Just a really beautiful matchup between the Lakers’ baby blue throwbacks and the Sixers’ classic looking white uniforms:
  23. NBA Changes 2017-18

    That was pretty bad, but still doesn’t really compare to a red vs. orange matchup or something like light blue vs. royal blue. And even if we might get a few games this season with less than ideal contrast, I really doubt we’ll get any matchups with such similar hues as red vs. orange, light blue vs. royal blue, etc.
  24. NBA Changes 2017-18

    There hasn’t been a debacle this season like the orange vs. red Knicks/Hawks game back in 2013, so I think the league, and the teams, are smart enough to realize that matchups with such similar hues need to be avoided, especially now that teams have more freedom picking the uniforms they wear on any given night, meaning there’s a much larger possibility of clashes. The closest we’ve come this season so far is kelly green vs. royal blue, and that really doesn’t even compare to, say, a red vs. orange matchup or light blue vs. royal blue.
  25. College Football Uniforms - 2017 Season

    I still don’t have official confirmation, but I’m now hearing that the Ducks might be going with the yellow helmets this weekend against Arizona, likely still with the green jerseys and pants:
