  1. College Football Uniforms - 2017 Season

    The pattern on the shockweb jerseys IS actually the same pattern as Primeknit, it's just applied differently.
  2. College Football Uniforms - 2017 Season

    PrimeKnit jerseys have the pattern we all know and hate. Shockweb jerseys were the precursor to PrimeKnit and featured the infamous "tire tracks". They feature the PrimeKnit pattern on the shoulders, but the chest area and side panels differed, as seen here on Brett Hundley:

    New Mexico State released templated UA BFBS unis. Nothing to see here. (Well, except for maybe the sweet crossed pistols on the sleeve cap)

    Looks like the outlandish uniforms have left Western Michigan with PJ Fleck.
  5. College Football Uniforms - 2017 Season

    I believe they claim it to be a difference in materials. The "shockweb" elements of the jersey (darker parts) are supposedly made of either a stronger material or a more flexible material than the rest of the jersey (I cant remember which way it is.) Anyways apparently they material is dyed or otherwise colorized with the same color but one of the fabric types is naturally darker/absorbs it differently. This could easily be circumvented by noting the disparity between the two textiles for each color and lightening/darkening the shades as necessary between fabric types before stitching the uniforms together. (For example, there is less of a difference in red than there is in, say, blue ) But then we wouldn't all notice the pattern and remember that whatever team we're watching is an Adidas team literally every time we see them. It's Lavar Ball marketing.
  6. NBA Changes 2017-18

    Not quite. Nike has gotten rid of home and road designations. New uniform guidelines work like this: The home team in a match-up can choose any one (1) of their four (4) uniforms- which are labeled "Association", "Icon, Community", and "Athlete's Mindset"- to wear; and the opposing (road) team must choose a contrasting uniform from their set of four (4). Uniforms are designated as follows: (Approximation of Nike press release regarding uniform rotation - my nikespeak is nowhere near as polished.) Association: Celebrates the tradition of the all-white uniform in the NBA which "unifies the league" seeing as every team has one. - This is every team's white uniform (previously known as Home uniform) Icon: The counter of the "Association" uniform, the "Icon" uniform is meant to celebrate a team's individuality as a brand. - This is every team's colored uniform (previously known as Road uniform) *Community: (Also referred to as Pride, or City Pride, etc.) Team uniform design that draws inspiration from the community surrounding and supporting the team. - Can be white or colored. (previously known as Alternate uniform) *Athlete's Mindset: (Also referred to as Athlete, Mindset, etc.) Team uniform design that is inspired by players or teams of years past or present. - Can be colored or white. Many team are using fauxback uniform combining both modern and retro elements from the team's history. (previously known as Alternate uniform or Hardwood Classic uniform) *Not sure if every team has both a "Community" and an "Athlete's Mindset" uniform, but they all have at least one of the two.

    back to football uniforms, These helmets stood out to me in this video posted recently by Arkansas Football. I haven't seen anything about Arkansas changing their look, but that stripe is rather conspicuous. I thought it might just be a practice thing, but would they really go through the work of applying full stripes to every players helmet and risk gunking them up, peeling off paint, etc. just to remove the stripe a few weeks later? That doesn't make all that much sense to me, which makes me think this might be an actual uniform addition. Can somebody more informed than me shed any light?
  9. Minnesota Timberwolves

    Wait what? Any sort of confirmation on these at all, or are these just unis you saw in a 2k vid and assumed were real? To me it looks like they were custom made with the Wizards striping pattern on the jersey and some generic "Spripe #3" on the pants. I can't imagine their new uniforms not featuring a trace of their new green color, tree motifs, or unique striping pattern

    Arkansas adding captains' "C" patches this year.
  11. College Football Uniforms - 2017 Season

    I immediately though of the 2015 pro bowl uniforms** when i saw these. Not only is gray not an official color, but they use two shades of it. Impressively stupid imo. Also, the collar shield is dumb in the fact that it is not team-specific at all, and any team in the country could pull off putting that there. Not enough orange on the jersey (or anywhere for that matter) for my liking, and not at all consistent with their current identity save for the beaver shark helmet logo. Is there at least a "theme" given for these uniforms or some reasoning from the school or Nike? Or are they GFGS in its purest form? **

    New "Stadium Lights" uniforms for Buttgers. To be worn November 4th against Maryland at Yankee Stadium. Am i the only one who thinks Rutgers should just depart from black entirely?

  14. College Football Uniforms - 2017 Season

    Here they are, boys! Honestly like them a lot (although i still want a grey facemask). No shoulder stripes, replaced with tv number, and no pants stripes. It also helps a lot that the techfit/shockweb pattern doesnt show up very well on red. EDIT: Promotional material on the left shows no shoulder numbers? Just an editing mistake mayhaps? EDIT #2: There appears to be a "1997 National champions" patch on the back collar of the fan jerseys. Unsure as to its placement on the player jerseys themselves, because of the angle on the back side promo shot.
  15. College Football Uniforms - 2017 Season

    I didn't initially like how the "mesh" pattern looked on the close-ups from the teaser, but seeing it as it corresponds with the whole jersey makes it look a lot better imo. This could actually be pretty cool. Maybe the B1G logo is moved over to make room for some sort of heritage patch that's yet to be announced? I think one would make sense seeing as the uniforms seem to be hearkening back to NU's glory days. Although i'm not sure what, if any, anniversary they'd be celebrating this season.
