Aren't those numbers illegal, or does that rule only apply to FBS teams now?

The massive amount of filtering doesn't quite do it justice. The numbers are dark royal blue and contrast the anthracite jerseys. The white outline helps a lot.

Think Miami's new green uniforms would look better if the stripe colors were swapped. White-Orange-White would pop more against dark green than Orange-White-Orange.

 

Coulda swore the set Miami wore prior to the Ken Dorsey era uniforms had green jerseys and pants with W-O-W stripes. May be wrong.

You are correct on both counts. It looks better, and they wore it. 1998, vs. Virginia Tech and Pitt.

IMO the best green Miami uniforms in recent memory. Too bad they ruined their overall identity for more money.

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?

 

It's just a practice thing that Bielema brought in a few years ago. They put the stripe on the helmet of certain players, primarily on defense, and use it to see where their eyes are during a given play. They'll be gone when the season starts.

All of those of you who always wanted the helmet stripe to match the pant stripe, looks like they did so with the black helmet.

 

 

 

Aw, count me a bit disappointed here. The green jersey would be perfect if only it was paired with white pants, and the black jersey could have been a rather classy edition of BFBS if they had only used their normal white helmets and pants with it. As it is, the addition of the green jerseys feels kinda "meh" and the black uniform just needs to be thrown in the bin with the other terrible Miami alts that Adidas farted out in the last few years.

 

(At least they're no '305 Ice,' though. I will forever hold contempt for '305 Ice.')

Miami's green and black alternates look just like the retail leaks

Sadly they decided to go with a black helmet on the "Miami Nights" uniforms. Green is being called "State of Miami" for what it's worth (absolutely nothing, actually)

 

Loving the green! I do agree it looks way better with white pants but this is the best Miami has looked in YEARS

Those Miami unis would look so much better without the tire-tread pattern. I don't understand why that's even a thing. Has Adidas ever put out literature explaining the purpose of the pattern in the fabric?

Oregon is using their 2012-15 number font on their offer letters to recruits, which seems to be yet another clue that the Ducks might be going back to that font for their uniforms this upcoming season.

What makes the Miami uniforms look so bad is the Shockweb pattern.  Take that off and it looks somewhat decent.

It's especially jarring in combination with their return to a traditional look as far as numbers and striping. It's like wearing a tuxedo jacket with a tie-dye shirt underneath.

This is all I could think of when you said a tuxedo with a tie-dye t-shirt. And the quote fits for Miami

That... doesn't seem good.

It's just the image they used to announce an 11 year extension with adidas. I doubt it has anything to do with the uniforms.

I mentioned the other day on Twitter that the manufacturer brand is becoming more and more important than the actual school's brand. Not saying that's happening here with Nebraska, but placing the adidas logo first isn't a good look to me. I know others have done the same, but it's about time for the schools to take back being the priority. But that's very wishful thinking here.

BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

I'd like to hope that schools and apparel companies will eventually realize that if your school's color is red, just don't do the whole dripping paint thing. It ain't ever gonna be good.
