If youre concerned about the contrast of the PSU/OSU game the Purdue/PSU game from last year did happen and was pretty hard to watch.

Penn State reportedly tried to prevent Ohio State from wearing the gray uniforms, citing contrast issues with the numbers.

The Buckeyes need to stick to a proper jersey against Michigan. At least keep the friggin' helmets... IT'S THE GAME.

 

In fact, what I've always wanted is a scarlet versus blue game... Someday...

 

These jerseys might not suck, we'll see. Definitely a downgrade from the black alt and even moreso from their regular look or their throwbacks that should be full time.

Looks like A&M will finally be breaking out their alternates this weekend for MAROON ADIDAS BOWL 2K17 vs. Mississippi State.

Here's a look at the full helmet as well.

And ASU will never let us forget it. 

 

I can get behind Tillman's own personal choice but there are literally hundreds, if not thousands of slain military personnel who have played college football. Army, Navy and Air Force do field football teams, but you rarely see them going to the lengths of the ASU Tillman thing. 

 

If anyone has ever seen the Clint Eastwood film, "Flags of Our Fathers," you get a sense of what true heroes are vs what the media manufactures as herodom. Pretty sure Tillman didn't join up in hopes that one day his name would be all over ASU merchandise.

 

Now, can we please get back to uniform talk? 

 

 

I get where you're coming from, but Tillman was a huge part of ASU culture before he joined the military and before he was killed. From seeing it up close and personal, I genuinely feel that at least part of the tributes (which I agree do go too far and sometimes feel a bit hollow) are in large part because they do feel a genuine sense of loss when it comes to Pat Tillman. ASU football doesn't put out quite the names that other schools do, but Tillman was always kinda "their" guy. He wasn't just some random lineman who played for awhile and was KIA, he was a guy who would've probably been a Ring of Honor guy regardless of his military service. It's not a perfect comparison, of course, but it would be similar to if Florida lost a guy like Tebow (Not in the sense that he had that kind of success, but in the sense that he's sort of the face of that program). I could be wrong, of course, but I never got the sense that the tributes to Tillman were as manufactured as they're made out to be.

This a uniform thread, not a pissing contest between the AZ schools' fans.

 

In all fairness I just asked an honest question if Tillman's family got any money from these uniforms, & the Normal fans got all riled up. Nothing personal to anyone, carry on.

This is why Penn State should wear blue on Saturday. BTW, Penn State tried to get the Ohio State uniforms denied, due to the argument that the greys were too close to each other and they couldn't see the numbers. 

Correct me if I'm wrong, but could they just say screw it and wear blue? It's not like the NFL where it's all scheduled ahead of time and they are completely anal about it. I say wear the throwback tributes from earlier in the season.

I'd hope that both teams were aware of the clash possibility. Personally, and I know I sound like a broken record on this, if you can see there may be issues, be proactive and bring the kit that won't conflict with the other one.

Is this the new jersey template? I didn't see the Primeknit pattern in the closeups. And it looked like there's a strange stripes pattern on the seams between the sleeve and main body.

well, I just thought of something, didn't South Carolina have to change their tops after pregame couple years back because the refs made them (numbers were too hard to read.)  God I'd love them make Urban Meyer Buckeyes have to change their tops. If that happened, I'd sell those babies with a banned by the NCAA sticker!

Desert camo helmets set against an American Flag backdrop with PT42 logos on gloves, sleeves, and helmet.  All the names of ASU players who served in the military on the helmet.  Better not kneel during the anthem at this game.

Illinois, what are y'all doing here? It blows my mind when a team has two perfectly good colors to choose from and they default to wearing gray. There's not a shred of Orange on those things!

Likely won't be an issue since most college teams don't come out until after the anthem.

I love when Illinois does their Penn State impression. 

Yep, because Penn State definitely wears navy helmets and gray jerseys/pants.

Tired.

 

If you look at that uniform and color combo, 10/10 times you would say its Penn State doing an alt...

Except Penn State is the last school I'd ever expect to do an alt that isn't pretty close to their permanent uniform look.

This looks similar to the template Western Michigan used with some of their jerseys. This may be an updated? version . the cooling vents next to the sleeves look different but you can see the same arch stitching on the shoulders of WMU
