  1. College Football Uniforms - 2017 Season

    Either of those two copying what Nike does is never going to happen, even in a small gimmick like the diamond swoosh.

    More on Auburn: More photo day images showcase new pants that feature the same striping pattern as the grey jerseys. The orange top in the photo has been worn for a few years, so it looks like it might be staying.
  3. Jacksonville Jaguars rumored for new uniforms in 2018

    The only life to a throwback uniform is that Tom Coughlin is in the front office now. While it's possible with this guy, I don't see that being that a concrete reason or bit of evidence. Other than that, it's nothing more than a normal message board rumor. Jacksonville would be stupid to incorporate another new primary logo. 3 logos in 23 years? 2 logos in 5? If anyone with a branding mind is in the front office, that will not happen. (Of course it is Jacksonville, anything is possible with this franchise) I think you see the difference in the logos in most areas that just introduced new logos. It's pricey to buy new merchandise, especially to replace an entire wardrobe collected over the years. Are we really going to fault someone going to an LA Chargers game wearing a shirt with San Diego on the front? Excluding jerseys, I have three items with the new logo - 2 hats and a Nike shirt. I also live in central Alabama, so I'm out of the market, for what it matters. The old lawsuit logo is just a rarity in itself. Never seeing the field makes it something different, rare, and now coveted. It fits the "cool" bill of Bucco Bruce and other retro designs. I have only have one item with that logo - an old hat - and I was excited to get it. Again, having the two different real logos on the field (not at the same time, obviously) would be a bad idea. That's such a nightmare waiting. I honestly don't know if the NFL would even approve such a thing. If Jacksonville were smart, and this would be a lot of fun actually, they would do what they can legally to use the lawsuit logo and original design in a minor league-esque "What Could Have Been" game during the next anniversary season.That would get people excited about the odd history of the franchise, get a lot of people to even see the design and logo for the first time, and just be a fun game and story to tell. It wouldn't be any more obscure than another team wearing a 1920s design that didn't survive a full decade let alone the stretch from then to modern day.
  4. Jacksonville Jaguars rumored for new uniforms in 2018

    There's a lot of talk here about a throwback, and I just don't see it happening. A true thowback would mean bringing 2 logos back from the dead - the old Jag head and the full body Jag - and a different number font. The Jag head was obviously retired in 2013 with the updated logo, and the full body logo was retired in 2009 with the new, simple, piping uniforms. Then you have the numbers. That's really not a bad change, it happens a lot, in fact. But the logos would be a branding nightmare. Yea, teams like the Patriots and Bucs have used old logos in throwbacks and done well. But they also market those throwback logos. They're different colors, different eras, different styles - everything. They're "cool" now. Old is cool nowadays, and that's fine. But the original Jaguars logos are not 1) marketed whatsoever, 2) old enough to be new again, and 3) different enough to warrant the merchandise and such. When we live in a world, especially a sports world, where branding is everything, there's zero chance, in my mind, that there will be a throwback design whatsoever.

    Didn't realize Oregon dumped HGI. When describing HGI and their products, it's typically easier to explain just Oregon as a client than listing off all the other stuff they've done haha
  6. College Football Uniforms - 2017 Season

    It's a hydro-dipped paint scheme. HydroGraphics, Inc. does all of Oregon's and many many other team's helmets. I imagine these are by them as well, as HGI does ND's normal helmets now. It wouldn't work in the NFL due to turn-around time. It would take too long to completely strip a helmet, ship it off, have it dipped, shipped back, put back together, and good to go in less than a week.

    Don't see that happening
  8. 2018 College Baseball Uniforms

    This yearly thread hasn't been started yet, so figured I'd start it off. Auburn showcased a new grey jersey used for player head shot day. The new tops changed the arching Copperplate font to the fauxback script Auburn (the A doesn't match the styles used previously). The collars and sleeves feature what look to be some Northwestern Stripes. I personally think it's a downgrade - I think the orange is a bit too distracting. Consensus on Twitter is they're upgrades. New: Old: Also, I'm fully expecting a completely new set of uniforms across the board for Auburn. It's time to replace the blue and white tops. I hope the creme throwbacks survive though.

    The history of what was influenced by the war is incredibly interesting. (Side note: I visited the National Infantry Museum and Soldier Center in Colombus, GA, the other day. If you ever get the chance to go, do. It's amazing.) I think there's a difference in football and businesses and others being influenced by military elements and saying football is meant to mimic war, like someone tried to describe to me.
  10. College Football Uniforms - 2017 Season

    Sure am. Someone in a different thread tried to argue that football "represents" war, simply because of terminology used in both - trenches, bomb, gridiron - and I couldn't stop laughing that someone truly believed that.
  11. College Football Uniforms - 2017 Season

    Honestly, for what they are (we can discuss the merits later - I'm getting roasted for doing so on my Twitter at the moment), these Mississippi State uniforms aren't that bad. If they have to do this each year, these are the best they've done. The pattern in the numbers and stripes are so subtle that they might not even be seen on the field.
  12. Jacksonville Jaguars Concept - Teal Pants!

    When I made the image, I was trying to figure out why I liked it or not. My first thought was the shoulder caps as well. But I think that, even with the black caps, the teal numbers on the whites do just as good a job as the teal caps on the blacks tying the pants to the whole thing. I would agree it looks better with the black tops as opposed to the whites, though. I think Jacksonville only made one mistake, one "trainwreck," as you call it, with the helmet. And that's the current look. The previous two helmets - the all black, and the all black with teal flakes - looked fantastic. The rumors are going to be slow for a while now that they're out. I think the most accurate rumor is the helmet will be fixed. It will be solid, I would almost guarantee that. What color and finish? That's TBD
  13. As we all know by now, the Jaguars sported their teal jerseys this weekend, and they looked fantastic (as can be with the current look). Surrounding the game, there was some talk here and there (on here and other places), but the Jaguars should wear teal pants, or gold pants, or other concept ideas. I wanted to try them out and put together a few different concepts. I think it's important to see these type of designs on both a flat template and a realistic photo, as it gives a chance to see the designs and changes in multiple ways. The first one I did was teal jerseys with teal pants. For some reason, many people want to see gold pants. So, yea ... I added a teal helmet to both of these designs as well (only realistic photo, no template for these) After sharing these online, a request was made to pair the white and black jerseys with teal pants. I gotta say, I really like the appeal of the teal pants. Much more so than I thought I would. I think the all teal with teal helmets isn't a bad look, but the teal helmet might be a bit overkill, especially if it goes back to a traditional glossy finish.
  14. Jacksonville Jaguars rumored for new uniforms in 2018

    I was just giddy to see teal back. Teal on black worked very well, too. It's just a shame this design will probably only be worn twice though. Next week will be a massive let down uniform wise after today.

    I too liked the Boise helmet. The script clashing with the pants wordmark isn't really the helmet's fault, but more so the stupid trend of pant wordmarks.
