    Heck, while we're at it let's change "Hook 'Em Horns!" to the grammatically correct and far superior "Hook Them, Longhorns!"

    I get where you're coming from with respect to the academic standpoint, but i think those inscriptions are more geared towards the players. Seeing as dropping the copulas be, is ,are, etc, is prevalent in both Southern dialect and African American Vernacular English (and there's a of of overlap between the two at TCU!), i think its a safe bet to assume that the phrasing chosen would resonate more with the players.

    What uniform elements and applications does this apply to? For example, i don't ever recall seeing Oregon's 2012(?) shoulder wing pattern in catalogs, nor have I (as of this past Nov) been able to find an adidas template with Nebraska's sleeve cap stripes.

    A. I never claimed that the fact that they are a catalog template made them horrible garbage, just not as good. This is a misplaced reduction to the absurd. + B. Alabama, Clemson, Penn State, etc. aren't really an appropriate comparison here, as all of them have had an established look with only minor tweaks (see PSU white collars, Clemson Shoulder Piping/Paws, Texas wordmark/numbers) over the past couple of decades. Calling any of those "templated" is a very tough sell. When Boise revealed their new uniforms last year, they really seemed to be "owning" the double diagonal stripes (see BSU social media from the past year), which made it a bit disappointing that it wasn't an element unique to their school. I don't think there is anything inherently wrong with templated uniforms for non-P5 schools, im just a bit disappointed that it is not, in fact, a unique element.

    Boise State's uniforms just got a lot less fun for me cuz it looks like they just got a 2019 catalog template a year early. Don't get me wrong, its still an alright look, but a good chunk of the value they provided was the fact that they were unique to Boise (or so i thought) Not sure if this is something thats already been brought up, i just learned about it today from a pic in a recruiting article: BSU Jersey Stripe:

    Macron Changing logo starting in 2019

    is it just me or is that release video way too wordy?

    I dont they just look like different finishes so much as they are different finishes. The orange-er looking shells (speedflexes) are reflecting the same light fixtures as the red-er looking shells, and the difference in distance between the two from said light fixtures is negligible, which all but rules out the possibility of color/light distortion to the camera lens. That would make me think that there is some coating on the harder speedflex shells that simply couldnt be applied (at least not in the same manner) to the softer Vicis shells.

    heyy umm i actually really like those LSU uniforms a lot. those who don't, what exactly is wrong with them?

    It's just you/ lighting. The red stitching "stroke" around the wordmark catches the light at "V" and travels through "ILLE". The light isnt reflecting off of "LOUIS" so much, so your eyes draw the base of the text where the white meets the darker red, as opposed to where the (white meets the) light red meets the darker red This is the wordmark on the chest.

    Nebraska vs Michigan looked fantastic. Iv'e really been a fan of the stripe-less pants so far.

    i would really like this set if it didn't have the sublimated c-rap on the shoulders that was part of the CU sets from like 07 to 09

    Fight to defend those Mizzou unis while you're at it. The piping isn't great, but i forgot how good the block M and old gold looked on the gloss black helmet.

    I really hope CU goes G/W/B against Nebraska week 2. Early pick for uni match-up of the week.
