College Football Uniforms - 2016 Season

Recommended Posts

This was UVA Equipment's reply to the "new helmet" post by SB nation. Nothing to see here, just a mini-helmet with the logo of one of their trainers. Probably given as a gift from the coaching staff or (by the look of it) the players. Either way, it was created by someone with no eye for design or just no eyes at all.

That is pretty nice.  I'll be interested to see what the blue jersey looks like. (I assume there will be mix and match options, but for some reason SMU is one of the few teams I don't mind multiple options for.)

 

 

But is that Michigan State's font again?

It appears to be Ohio State Uniforms with Michigan State numbers

Not sure what all the questions are about with this new helmet... Seems pretty straightforward.. Normal logos will be applied as usual, chin strap is pretty standard, typical nose bumper, etc... Sure the technology inside is a bit different, and the distinguishing curves and flares are in vicis-specific locations, but from a basic looks standpoint, this is a pretty normal helmet..

As a proud graduate of the Ohio State University, I'm fine with SMU stealing that look.  This is the only uniform tOSU needs;

Agree a billion times.

Hopefully the matching stripes on the jersey and pants mean there will be a throwback patriot, dolphin, oiler, bills, redskins type stripe pattern on a white helmet!

The outer shell of the helmet flexes, and we don't know what that's going to do to the decal.

I'm more worried about the helmet flexing in the direction parallel to the sticky surface of the decal and flying off like one of those Command strips.

Are the new Michigan jerseys NNOB?

Just for retail. Ohio State has names on the back for alumni, I'd think Michigan would do the same. Might be a strange NCAA rule because Harbaugh is coaching though.

How so, the gray facemask?  This is just the practice facility so who knows.

To the best of my knowledge most teams use the same endzone design on their main practice field as they do in their stadium endzones, with the exception that the background color isn't painted in. In this case i think there is no BG color and that's what the U's endzones will look like at least at some point this season

Unless they are doing something new at the renovated Dolphins Stadium (or whatever the name is these days), I doubt that's any indicator of the field design for the U. Since they share the field with the Dolphins, both teams have strayed away from any unique designs and have used plain Miami text in each endzone. It's very similar to what the Steelers and Pitt have done.

Not sure why they would have a gray facemask on the helmet.  We've never seen Miami use the gray facemask with the modern wordmark.  Might have to do something with the smoke gray (but maybe even that was more promoted by Nike)?  If it was just normal painting of a practice field, I'd imagine they'd paint the facemask white to match the current helmets.

 

EDIT: after searching on Google, I guess they've had this helmet on the practice field since at least 2014.

Some pics from Canes' first day of practice. Practice jerseys were posted previously. Helmets look the same (for now).Those white adidas cleats are interesting.

Looks like block number for the Canes this year.
