These are trash. They simplified way too much.

Honestly, I didn't think WSU needed to change anything from their old set. I (and I am probably in the minority for this) loved the 2 grays they used. They both worked well. now all character is vacuumed out of the set. Especially on those grays, no red makes it look out of place. These are just... dumb. On the bright side, at least they still have an original font.

I'll always appreciate a nicely restrained but tasteful uniform. These strike a good balance. As of right now, they are good iniforms. Contrasting number outlines (gray on the crimson and white sets, red on the gray set), a simple pants stripe, and maybe a return to the chest wordmark, and these would be great uniforms. Still very nice as is, but could be better.

I swear....you guys are IMPOSSIBLE to please. Every new uniform sucks for being too busy or too plain.

It's all perspective based off the previous set for me. This is a perfectly fine uniform:

Compared to that, it seems like these uniforms are extremely phoned in. Whether that's the school's or Nike's fault, I have no clue.

I always appreciate a simplified college football uniform... Michigan, Penn State, Notre Dame... college teams can get away with it.  I just never like dark stripe-less pants.  The white and silver I can live with, but the dark gray and red pants need something to break up the color.

The gray/crimson/gray homes and gray/white/crimson roads do look nice.  

 

The anthracite sucks.  Just not needed when you have gray.  And the all crimsons are pretty ugly...they need color contrast.

If they wanted to go for a more simplistic set, I would've liked to have seen them look at their first Nike uniforms for inspiration. Throw some tasteful dark gray accents in there (if you must) and use their custom font and you have a pretty nice and simple uniform while still retaining some distinctive features.

As this is my 2nd favorite CF team, I have been following them for decades.  These are simple, and nice but I still HATE the battleship gray helmet.  A silver helmet would be a big improvement.  I am glad they got rid of the grey (and all) jersey shoulder stripes.  I like the interchangeable pants.  The grey jersey needs some crimson.  I would prefer cursive "Cougars" back on the helm, and "WASHINGTON STATE" back on the chest.

If Nike and Wazzu would really want to venture to simplicity, they should've gone to just removing all striping and retaining the front wordmark on top of the number and the outline on the numbers. I gotta say that this is much cleaner, but it's way too clean, especially with the anthracite jersey.

It's sad I didn't remember these. These are a good look for them.

I actually like the Webfoots uniforms as a one off type thing. Wouldn't mind seeing those stick around in the future.

Keep the uniform around, but wear it once a season. My bad for the confusion

Wazzu looked fine before, these new ones are ok, just needed a few stripes.

The striping style, from what Ive been told, is what they liked most and would like to see again. I really hope they release them soon, I'm anxious to see them!

Those new Washington State uniforms are such a massive downgrade. Their last set was one of the better ones in college football IMO., and now they're a block number font away from looking like a cheap high school. Why remove all of the character?

I have agree with the consensus here - the new Wazzu uniforms are a downgrade. The last set was really good. They grew on me a lot towards the end of their tenure. In regards to it being a cleaner look, well yea, that's what the Vapor Untouchable template does. The lack of seems and everything make it a fantastic canvas for uniform designs. 

 

And that's what bothers me. The previous set was good. And they completely did away with any character they had. Other than the custom number font and the plastic ship WSU logo on the v-neck, these are yet another set of uniforms you can pass around to many different teams and not notice a different.

Wrong.  The biggest issue, in my opinion, is people painting with broad strokes.

 

Its one thing to have incredibly simple, classic, barren, iconic, consistent uniforms like Penn State or Alabama... where the uniform is just as much a part of their history as their name/colors/logos are (ONE helmet, ONE pair of pants, TWO jerseys).

 

Its another thing when a team, who does not have an iconic look, takes a very nice uniform set - a set that is only a couple tweaks away from being fantastic - removes all the character from it, has 4 different helmets, 3 different pairs of pants, 3 different jerseys, and the colors don't match.

 

There is a big, big difference.

Hey guys, 

 

I am working on a poll to be used for all future new NCAA uniforms for the Uni Watch Fans Facebook page and I thought I would share this with you to see what you guys think or if you would like to participate in future polls. Below in the link to the Washington State Cougars 2017 Uniforms poll. Please click the link and complete the survey if you are interested.
