You'd basically be having a game that looks like Ketchup vs Mustard.

 

Exactly. It would be so brutal on the eyes but yet perfect at the same time.

Georgia Tech's uniforms today really needed gold pants. White pants look wrong and out-of-balance with the gold helmets and navy jerseys.

Worst part was 1st and goal on the 8 and they ended up punting.

How the hell did that even manage to happen?

Illegal forward pass (ball deflected and QB threw again), pass for loss and sack.

Nah, what they need is primarily white numbers.

They’re going all-white:

So close and yet so far. Change the pants to blue and the look would improve immensely.

Gotta ask because I've been seeing the same complaint posted for years on this forum. What's so bad about red and yellow? I don't understand it. I actually like "ketchup and mustard" on both a visual and edible level. Help me understand your POV.

I've never seen people complain about that! I thought most people like it. I think its hard to get the color balance right. And I personally dislike it because I have red hair, went to Iowa State, and neither of their colors look good for me haha

Has anyone else noticed that Louisiana Tech is using the old Atlanta Hawks font for their front wordmark/NOBs?

HiI'm shocked that with all the proprietary number fonts or schools, they fail to fix the NOB font.

 

Looking at you Texas.

 

Miami's tried to go old school with NOB.

Stanford’s white jerseys have been updated to include the black number outlines that they added to the red jerseys:

Also, here’s a couple on-field looks at the Ducks:

Still would’ve liked to have seen the yellow helmets and/or pants, but this all-green combo really is a nice and clean look for them. Easily the best of their new set IMO.

Longer names can become an issue with the names on the back which is why they tend to stick to a generic font.

If you're expecting to use the same font Texas uses on the front of the jerseys to the names on the back, it should not be aan issue. Depending on the size and shape of lettering for other teams it can become unreadable when crammed onto a nameplate.

Another sport but here you can see how they had to shrink the name to fit the uniform. Certain fonts just wouldn't work.

If you’re going to design a proprietary font, make condensed and extra condensed versions. It’s not that hard.

Ducks look good from the neck down, but the wings are too subtle on that helmet. Could just be these pictures, though.
