  1. I'm in the minority here. I'm not a fan. I originally thought maybe it was supposed to look like a raindrop. I think it looks like an army private first class patch. It's close, but doesn't move the needle (no pun intended) for me.

    Northwestern Wildcats Unveil Chicago-Inspired “By The Players” Uniform

    March 6, 2020 - 01:07 AM

    The Northwestern men’s basketball program on Thursday afternoon announced it will wear the latest rendition of its “By The Players” uniform during Saturday’s Senior Day tilt with Penn State (4 p.m. ET on Big Ten Network). This marks the fourth […]

    Utah Jazz 90's throwbacks.

  3. My least favorite (and someone said it earlier in this thread as well) is blue, red, and black. Next would be navy blue and black, a la Butler basketball uniforms. After that, it is anything with brown. I know that may upset some Padres, Wyoming Cowboys, Cleveland, Bowling Green, Tufts, etc. fans. Sorry. I just don't get it.

    Sure to be an unpopular opinion, but I preferred the original silver helmets.

    I could not agree more! 1000 times this! Everything about the second set of Seahawks uniforms are superior to anything they've thrown out since.

    I'm doing a poor job posing my question. I understand that the QuickLock panels are 4' x 7'. My question revolves around the boards within those panels. Examine the wood grain. 

     

    On the early round floors, there are about 72 two inch wide boards from lane line to lane line. 

     

    On the Final Four floor, there appears to be only 6 boards from lane line to lane line. 

     

    Look at the pic. It's an obvious mockup photoshop job just to show the paint scheme.

  6. Based on the 2K leaked images, these fall into 4 categories for me:

     

    1. Decent (would be "good" but I hate the Nike cut that eliminates the arm hole trim from going all the way around in the back):

    Chicago, Boston, Clippers, and Piladelphia

     

    2. Meh, I'm not impressed but I don't hate 'em:

    Portland, Cleveland, Memphis, Lakers, and Houston

     

    3. Ugly:

    Milwaukee, Charlotte, Dallas, Brooklyn, Denver, Indiana, Detroit, San Antonio, Phoenix, OKC, Golden State, Washington, and Minnesota

     

    4. WTAF?!:

    Atlanta, Utah, Sacramento, Knicks, Orlando, and New Orleans

    With everything else blue/gold/blue, it makes sense to use the same pattern on the waistband.  It was odd that it used to be blue/white/gold/white/blue.

     

    I see what you're saying. Guess i just can't let go of the classic Wooden era uniforms. They scream UCLA success to me.

     

    I forgot to nitpick the arm and neck holes too. Those should be just two, not three, stripes.

    Under Armor did a MUCH better job than Adidas! Bugs me that the waistband isn't right. They missed the white outlines of the gold (thick white, thin blue, thin white, thin gold, thin white, thin blue, thick white). Nitpicky? Yes. Still, upgrade from Adidas.

  9. No, I don't. I'm a fan of the pro teams I grew up with (SuperSonics, Seahawks, Mariners). With other teams, I have to have a personal connection to someone playing or coaching to like, support, and be a fan of. For example, I went to Washington State and I was a big WSU football fan because I knew the coaching staffs of Mike Price, Bill Doba, and Paul Wulff. I am not a fan of them now 1) for my personal dislike of the Leach and 2) I don't know anyone on the roster or staff. A lot of former WSU classmates get angry that I don't support WSU football. I guess I'm more loyal to people than places or things (such as uniforms and logos).

     

    Am I critical of uniforms and logos? Absolutely! Even if I know people on those teams.

    There is zero financial assistance for D3 athletes.. However, there are plenty of scholarship opportunities for D3 students.. They can still get institutional and federal aid.. Perhaps everyone isn't privy to the specifics, but everyone isn't even privy to the specifics around D1 either.. I've coached at the D2 level for 6 years now, and have a pretty good grasp of how it works as well.. I just think it's a bit nitpicky to suggest that everyone is incorrect who says D3 athletes don't get scholarships, when the implication is that they're referring specifically to athletic scholarships, and therefore are correct.

     

    There is zero financial assistance for D3 athletes based on athletic ability, athletic talent, athletic involvement, or athletic leadership. Every single one of my athletes at the D3 level has received financial assistance. Nitpicky? You bet. You might liken it to what this board, and the members of it, (and coaching for that matter) are all about: details.
