As a reminder, Oregon State will be wearing their gorgeous new fauxbacks with the Retro Benny helmets this Saturday against Cal:

This uniform is a solid A+. I’m not sure why the jersey appears to not match the helmet/arm sleeve black, but that’s such a minor nitpick anyway, look at the size of the stripes throughout the uniform, legible and well crafted numbers with enough color contrast to separate from the jersey, the “Sail” colored pants, complete lack of tackiness (chrome face mask for example) and all those geometric shapes are broken up by the charmingly cartoonish Bucky logo.(and I don’t say that often about old, hand drawn characters). 

 

This is what a uniform looks like when you shoot for long lasting craft as opposed to *fire emoji*

They lost me in the explanation video when they showed the "French helmet" I believe it was. That aside, these are quite fantastic for one-offs. 

 

That was the worst of the Nike speak for sure. It wasn't necessary whatsoever, especially in an "American soldier tribute." No need to shoehorn that in.

I'm surprised to say that I actually like the color scheme of Arkansas State in white-red-white. Too bad the jersey design itself sucks.

Yeah I think overall I’m pretty cool with the LSU alts as far as the look of it. My only problem is the concept behind the helmet (not the look of it, the concept) just because I don’t think it fits the theme of the uniform. It’s like, “honoring the fallen and the unknown soldiers.....WITH MARDI GRAS BEADS BABY”

 

Yeah the design and look of the helmet is cool, but when you compare the concept of it on its own to the intended concept of the uniform as a whole, it just doesn’t fit. Seems kinda silly, in fact. We know they’re a major university from Louisiana; a nod to Mardi Gras beads to drive that point home really isn’t necessary in the context of the whole uniform’s intended message. Maybe a purple helmet with a subliminated oak pattern would’ve fit the concept better instead? Or maybe it doesn’t need any kind of pattern or hidden meaning at all?

As expected, Oregon is going chrome/white/white again for tomorrow’s primetime game at WSU:

With the Cougs going all-anthracite, tomorrow’s game will practically be devoid of any and all color. The Cougs really should’ve incorporated some crimson into this week’s combo, and this would’ve been a good game for the Ducks to switch things up and go with the yellow lids again (or go with the black lids and use yellow or green ‘O’ decals on the back).

Alright, I’m sold. At first I hated them, but these are just too good.

 

Will still be interesting to how they react with stadium lights, though.

I wish the helmet had a bit more red (face mask and/or stripes), but other than that I’m a fan.

Remember when I said I liked the basic look of Arkansas State in red-white-red despite the inherent terribleness of their jerseys? Probably not, but Texas Tech's throwbacks are basically the far superior ideal of that basic color scheme. I like it a lot.

If you like clean, White-Red-White looks, I have a team recommendation for you.

It’s too bad Oregon and Washington State aren’t playing at Eastern Michigan’s Rynearson Stadium.

I think if you're going all white, it's just that much more important to get some color on there somewhere. It's like that snoozer that Oregon lost the Natty to tOSU in. Oregon's green is just about the nicest primary color you can find in CFB. You it, idiots.

school colors are for squares I guess. Pains me.

Okay, that’s it. I want Retro Benny to be the primary logo full time now.
