Looking at this hurricane symbol;

And, obviously, the San Diego L. A. Chargers, I came up with this;

How about gold instead of red for the alt? I don't think they really use red as more than a trim IRL.

I thought about it, but honestly, I can't think of one Vegas gold jersey that works.

 

Plus, there's this;

Wow, I'd never seen that before. I'd never seen them wear red anything for that matter. Seems like the Golden Hurricane should wear gold, but you're right that Vegas gold doesn't work for jerseys generally - they would need a deeper and richer shade. I'm so sick of Vegas gold.

So I came across a few old images of Johnny Unitas from his college days t Louisville...

Admittedly, it is not  much to go on, but since I hate Louisville's current uniform set, I thought I'd try out a fauxback;

Pretty simple, I know, but this is a team that could certainly use some simplification.

Kind of obvious, I guess.  The PJ Fleck disaster made me want to do one.

 

I know I'll get hate for the logo on the white helmet, but what can I say... I'm a sucker for cartoon animal mascots.

I actually like that white helmet. It mixes things up, which is cool. Minnesota has a classic look, but adding things like that cartoon gopher is nice. Besides, how could you NOT use that awesome logo somewhere?

I love the return of silver to the Colorado set. One thing I don't like is the white in the pants stripe on the black pants. To me, with the rest of the set, it looks like that should be silver as well.

Yeah, the white stripe there isn't my favorite part either, but it kind of ended up there by default.  I tried the silver, but I found that particular gold and silver just can't touch. There was zero contrast and the just mushed together.  Maybe a black inner stripe?  Go gold/black/gold stripe on the black pants?

Any particular inspiration for the sleeve stripes here, OSV?

Not really.  Va tech has such cool colors I just wanted to put them on to a relatively traditional template and let the color scheme do all the work.

I love the mini-mes on the bottom showing off the color combinations

Yeah, I was having fun with that.  You'll note... no monochrome to be found.
