D2 West Florida (my alma mater) is having a practice only first year this season but today they unveiled their helmet:

The full uniform unveil is set for Monday.

That is great news! I was accepted to go there but I chose cold and rainy University Park, PA. Go figure. Do they start playing next year?

Yup 2016. They've got 5 intrasquad scrimmages this year (including one in the downtown stadium) and then right into full on 11 game schedule, including an 8 game Gulf South Conference torture chamber.

Green is a school color

Kelly green yes. It doesn't look like the numbers or logos are using green. Unless it's sea foam green.

I think there's a shiny (ugh) green outline on the numbers.

BC will be wearing "Flutie era throwbacks" for their game against Notre Dame at Fenway Park (so says Twitter, at least)

The resemblance is uncanny. It's hard to differentiate one uniform from the other.

It looks like the stripes are in the side panels. It'll be interesting to see ibguess.

Stripes are on the undershirts

Correct

That definitely looks better than what's on the mannequin.

Notre Dame will wear:

I really dislike that all UA uniforms look the same. They all have the stupid stripes on the shoulder and pants.

BC looks phenomenal.

Notre Dame's jersey design is alright but mono green looks terrible on them. Also the helmets stink.

UCLA. There is absolutely nothing I like about that uniform.

IMO, BC-ND will be a good looking game

EDIT: it looks like ND has both side stripes AND thigh stripes or do the sides lead into the thigh stripes (the helmet is covering it)

New EMU road uniforms designed by the seniors. The new wings are nice but the rest is trash.

EMU will also have these "patriotic" alternantes.

Loving the all green for the Irish. They're playing at Fenway home of the green monster so it's fitting. Also the 11 breaks in the stripes are said to represent the 11 titles the football team has won. I'm totally drinking the kool-aide

Like the Irish Green, hate the navy numbers. Like the helmet, hate the quad stripes.

Air Force can get away with this look. Eastern Michigan, not so much.

BC - we haven't seen stripes applied to an undershirt for a year or two (thinking Army was the last one) but it's never gone wrong. im totally convinced at this point that a hot weather and cold weather undershirt option should be mandatory for football uniforms and that stripes should move from the shoulders (jersey) to those sleeves. the material is light enough and water wicking so the big guys should feel comfortable while wearing them. (i'd also push for a hot/cold weather sock option while we're at it). the throwback looks great.

ND - im really more impressed with the presentation than the uniform, UA is doing the best job of that right now. i love the green color but surprisingly, this is one of the worst uniforms ND has ever had. that ugly logo on the helmet with all the white knocked out looks brutal, the numbers will be impossible to read (and i believe this is a night game?) you've got them in the standard UA template, and as much as i like the color, they really over did it here - just way too much green. the pants' stripe going up the leg dosn't pair with any other element on the uniform and the helmet stripe dosen't pair to well with the rest of them because of the alternate color application. it feels like each piece was designed by a different person and that's the way i felt about a lot of Nike's stuff until this year. UA is struggling right now to even execute the basic principles of uniform design, like contrasting readable numbers.

UCLA - love the colors, and as far as an alternate goes, this is a good foundation for one. the blue and gold on black would be really great under the lights. i'd love to see a small attempt at consistency and repitition though; there are 3 UCLA logos on this uniform and they're all treated differently, the best being the metallic gold helmet decal. some restraint on the metallic ink would be great too, like a non-metallic blue to pair with the metallic gold. i would grade it as a C at best but the sad thing is, this is one of the better adidas uniforms of the last 2 years.

The only positive I can find with ND's Fenway uni is that they will only wear it once.
