    College Football uniforms- 2018

    Notre Dame should have worn green socks.
  2. Philadelphia actually wore black jerseys over white pants at New England during the 2014 preseason because their midnight green jerseys weren’t ready until Week 10 as they switched to the Nike Elite 51 template that fall.

    NBA Changes 2018-19

    Aside from the generic-looking abbreviated work mark, I though last year’s City jersey was a nice nod to Dallas’ skyline at night. (That said, I didn’t feel that way until I went there for the Cotton Bowl and saw it in person.)

    Man, you can even get Miami Vice license plates? I’m all in on this being their full-time identity. Noticed that link has both white and pink dates on the calendar. I’d assume they snuck in when they plan to wear the pink “Earned” uniforms, too.
  5. The Titans actually look really good in that zoomed-in photo of Mariota. That’s the only compliment I’ll ever give that set.

    Report: Miami Marlins Getting New Logos for 2019

    If it’s anything like Pittsburgh’s 2016 batting practice hat, it’ll look great. Almost like a neon sign, which works for Miami.

    College Football uniforms- 2018

    You may recall Notre Dame wore green uniforms with blue numbers as part of the Shamrock Series game at Fenway against Boston College in 2015. Looked great in photos, but was definitely hard to see the numbers from any distance.

    Report: Miami Marlins Getting New Logos for 2019

    But none of these teams look bland and dull because of the (almost entirely unique) secondary (and, in some cases, tertiary) color pairings. Arizona - Red, Sand Baltimore - Orange Chicago - Silver Colorado - Purple Miami - Neon Blue, Pink/Red Pittsburgh - Yellow San Francisco - Orange And if you don’t think these colors are going to pop on the black background, the Heat’s City uniforms would like to have a word with you. The promotional tweets jump off the page, too. It’ll look really good on gray road uniforms, as well, provided the Marlins actually wear them instead of a heavy dose of alternates on the road.

    NFL Uniform rules

    Teams can now wear their alternate, throwback or color rush uniforms up to three times during the regular season. Was two previously.
  12. I feel confident in saying the idea originated with the manufacturer in both situations, but it’s not as if the manufacturer subsequently created uniforms without approval from the team or significant design input from the team. Not to unnecessarily merge threads/sports, but rather to use as example, I know a lot about Ohio State’s alternate uniforms and the design process behind each one. From the very beginning (2009), Nike suggested an alternate uniform and Ohio State contractually agreed to wear them for a certain number of years. It’s since just become a standard part of the contract for recruiting purposes, but the first few iterations (as well as the black set worn in 2015 and last weekend) involved a collaborative effort where both sides suggested different things, but it ultimately had to be approved by Ohio State — and a board that includes Archie Griffin and other high-ranking people in the athletic department. And now, Ohio State is simply contractually obligated to wear at least one alternate per year and tells Nike exactly want it wants to do. I understand things don’t always work the same across leagues and/or sports, but I feel confident in saying there’s no way Nike is forcing designs on a team unless the higher-ups simply don’t care or have said they would take whatever was presented.

    Logo Identification (Cougar? Wildcat?)

    Reverse image search doesn’t help, since I assume you’re referring to the Foothill Cougars (which have two different color versions of said logo). It does look familiar, though, particularly the whiskers.

    Bad Jersey Sightings

    I once owned Randy Moss, Derrick Burgess, Lamont Jordan, Jamarcus Russell and Darren McFadden jerseys. I probably would have bought Khalil Mack, Amari Cooper and Derrick Carr, too, but I stopped buying/wearing jerseys (and donated everything I owned) before they entered the league. Luckily, that was all balanced with Charles Woodson and Tim Brown jerseys, which could still be worn without protest. My most obscure jerseys were Troy Smith (Ravens), Sammy Sosa (Orioles) and Rashad McCants (Timberwolves), though.
  15. I was speaking about Nike, though, since the initial comment was “what [Nike is] gonna do the Yankees once [they] get ahold of MLB” and most of the conversation (or rather complaining) in this thread and the NBA thread revolves around the idea that Nike is the sole reason why teams currently look the way they do. I used Boston as an example, too, because the team has been pretty conservative when it comes to uniform design and it was another manufacturer that ushered in the Celtics’ gray and black-accented uniforms.
