God I hate that the "A" logo on the uniform doesn't have white in it at all. Arizona continues to mess up the easiest colors to use correctly.

CSU really shouldn't do this, they have one of the best helmets in CFB. Anything without the horns is bad for them.

 

Boy this is out of left field.

Just as bad as Oregon's Webfoot jerseys last season.

There's a lot here that could work if there was more usage of white. That said, the font is starting to grow on me after watching them play a couple times.

It's not bad, but its also not Green and Gold either.

 

It's bad in the sense it's completely unncessary.

 

From the tease yesterday, I was hoping for a white helmet with green/gold/green stripes and maybe the ram head logo on the sides

I'd say it's much worse, actually. At least Oregon's Webfoot jerseys were significant to the school in that they were a throwback to the early 1900's, albeit with some creative liberties taken. The throwback vibe was diminished when they switched out the tan helmets and pants from the spring game with black helmets and pants for their game vs. UW, but at least the jerseys still had some significance to the school. These new uniforms for CSU just seem so out of the blue and random, and frankly they seem like they should be for a State of Colorado high school football all-star game, but definitely not for CSU.

That uniform looks way too good on its own for it to be trotted out as a one-off by a green and gold team that has zero room for it in its brand.

I'd like to hand out my weekly boo to Arizona. They're a perfect of example of "just because you could, doesn't mean you should." And also boo Colorado State. What even?

I think on their own, those are nice uniforms, but it's actually going to be impossible to tell that CSU is playing. I think it would've been much better had they done this design in CSU colors, would've at least given some indication of who's playing, especially when blue and white are major colors of the school you're playing against.

I'd upgrade that to the Yearly Boo. I don't under stand how a school with the at least as high of a profile as Arizona has could get away with looking like they currently do. I know that there are a lot of unis that come out which are fuglier overall, but they at least make sense in that they're usually just trying to be swaggy for the recruits and still, technically, look "professional." The Arizona jerseys are special in that they look as though they were designed by a blind person who had someone describe to them what a football uniform is supposed to look like. Or maybe like someone asked a four-year old to draw in crayon how they think that a blue and red football uniform could appear. It's elements just look so head-scratchingly strange and mishapen. Its almost surreal that this could make it past anyone's drawing board.

 

Don't even get me started on the mind-numbingly disjointed mix-&-match color combos. Coming from someone who is forced to witness the Jacksonville Jaguars on a weekly basis, I REALLY hate these uniforms.

A school named Colorado State that is IN Colorado for some reason can't have state pride uniforms for their football program because apparently there's no significance to it. Got it.

 

 

But seriously, tuck the feathers back in. It's not even bad.

No they made the right choice. They chose the best Cowboys uniform to ape. The white are awful. Here is an interview with the equipment director. Answers your question about the whites too.

Good read. I do wish Paul would have asked him why they didn't use the red hog on the helmet. That's my only complaint about an otherwise perfect one off.

Mississippi State is going with the all-white look at Georgia:

 

 

 

There's been talk about Georgia wearing black on Saturday; they haven't done so against an SEC team since a loss to Alabama in 2008. I think they'll probably stick with red, but don't be shocked if they break out the black jerseys.
