  1. I'm okay with it. Plus they need to change the podium from that wood to something of a school color.
  2. Last thing I will post about WVU. A friend brought to my attention that another color "Anthracite" was included in the color palette for WVU moving forward. The black has been removed from the shoulders. The also stated that there will be another helmet option. Rumblings inside the program says there will be an all black/Anthracite uniform at some point even to the point of doing what Arkansas did a few years ago.
  3. It still makes no sense that the ACC didn't bring in WVU and pissed around for a while and then brought Pitt, Cuse, and UL in. I think the ACC was pushing hard to get good bball schools in and at the time Pitt and Syracuse were really good fits. Fast Forward, Pitt's athletic profile is just horrid all around. Cuse is maintaining in bball and is just now getting back to the glory years in football. UL always good in basketball and has had recent success in football but is rebuilding. Say what you want but WVU has been a better overall athletic University than the above mentioned. Up until this year they have been consistent in basketball and football, better in other sports to. I still think the ACC from a football perspective was scared to bring in WVU back then. That was the Rich Rod era with Pat White and company, then Holgerson with Tavon Austin. Those WVU teams would of gave ACC teams hell because Clemson was not elite like it was back then and Miami and FSU were not at the top as usual.
  4. And to think if the ACC would of let WVU in years ago they would have had a natural rival game to end the year instead of Miami and Pitt playing to end the season. Just saying.
  5. These are the official press release pics that I think people couldn't see yesterday.
  6. I feel ya. Was expecting more but better than what we had IMO.
  7. Dont post here really, more of an observer but a WVU alum and fan. Very excited and its long over due. I thought though the athletic department might get a re branding. A few weeks ago when a post was made on the WVU Football social media accounts of a picture at NIke HQ, the same pic was posted on the WVU Mens basketball media accounts. I think there is more to it than just football for WVU athletics.
  8. What infuriates me is that the average college football fan knows it, wvu alum and fans know it. Rich Rod added those dreadful batwings when he took over for Nehlen. Then a year after Holgs took over they release our current sets. I just dont understand how other schools like pump out new unis and alternates yearly but WVU does nothing. Is it the school or Nike that wants no part of us. Also way back in the 50-60's WVU actually used true old gold as a color. Something like in between what Pitt uses now and Notre Dame/Colorado. The helmet below is an old helmet. I wish they would use that gold color and blue. I just wish we would have a refresh. Its sad our school and sports department people think they look great and they dont.
  9. Made this post on twitter. Something needs to change with WVU.
  10. WVU for this Fridays Armed Forces Classic against Texas A&M in Germany. A&M has not revealed their set yet.
  11. The black is unneeded and I wish they would let them get alternates. WVU is becoming bland and needs an entire refresh.
  12. I really dont know why Nike cant do WVU right. Our colors are old gold and blue. Actually WVU back in the 60-70's era helmets actually looked more gold like Pitt and Colorado which I like! The older unis from the Nehlen era I prefer but without a doubt my favorite uniform is when Nike did the Pro Combats years ago. I still feel aside from Oregon, WVU looked the best. I would use it as a regular uniform. Its been 5 years with these current ones. I truly hope Nike does a refresh soon. I'm tired of seeing crap schools like Rutgers and others get alternates and refreshes each year. WVU might not be a blue blood but the flying WV brand is very recognizable. Hell maybe someone from WVU's side can put a word in to Rob Mullens the athletic director at Oregon who is a West Virginia native. Maybe he has some pull with Phil Knight.
  13. Thoughts on WVU and TCU? I like the gold white gold combo but just wish the uni could be adjusted on the collar.
  14. I dont post here much but I'm a WVU alum and fan. They will be wearing white lids, blue jersey, blue pants this weekend. I was okay the first season of the new unis but then I noticed they were not that good. For the life of me I dont know why WVU does not get updated uniforms and even have alternates. Its like we are living in the past while every other school (some horrible, others good) are constantly getting uni refreshes. WVU might not be a blue blood school but the flying WV logo is widely recognizable. If not Nike, I hope someone will outfit my Alma mater better.
  15. Vandy lids for this Saturday against Kansas State.
  16. WVU is wearing the same combo it wore last time in Austin.
  17. The number font is horrible. After Luck left to go work for the NCAA, Shane Lyons came in. Maybe he doesn't want a change. I'm guessing unless we finish 1st or 2nd in the Big XII this year, Dana might be gone which I hate cause I like him but he keeps missing on our QB's. He gets jucos and transfers. I hope he is our HC next year cause we will be returning pretty much all of our starters and Will Grier from Florida has been on campus and will be our QB next year. Lyons came to West Virginia after spending three years as the deputy director of athletics and chief operating officer at Alabama where he worked closely on day-to-day strategic leadership and direction with Alabama athletic directors – the late Mal Moore and current Athletic Director Bill Battle.
  18. I have been praying for a re-brand for my Mountaineers for a while. Keep the flying WV but do it for all of our athletics.
  19. The grey unis we used our first year in the Big XII. Dana had us use them cause grey was in and they used it when he was with Weeden at Oklahoma State(I hated those). The pro Combat were so nice and the best IMO. You might be right about our AD Lyons and Holgs denying it which is stupid. I hope they get a refresh soon. The gold unis are bad with the blue under the arm pit area. We wore then against BYU last week and this week against K State we are wearing gold unis, gold lids and blue pants. and the black they added to our blue unis is not needed. I like what Cal is since we are compared to them. Personally the all white combo which everyone uses is my favorite.
  20. I dont post but mainly view the various topics on the board. I'm a WVU alum and have always wondered how Nike, Adidas, UA decide which schools get alternates. It seems as if everyone is getting new weekly threads on top of what they have. My question is, why is WVU never getting any alternates or anything new. We do have our current uniforms that are about 4 years old with a gold,blue,white helmet and same colors for pants and jerseys. I'm not a big fan of them but I wish Nike would really invest time in doing WVU some justice. I feel like our combinations are just slapped together. the flying WV is a well known symbol. I'm just a frustrated fan that wishes WVU would get some love our way. I'm tired is seeing teams like Rutgers, Oklahoma State and others get blessed with new unis on top of what they already have. Thoughts?
