  1. I wasn't listening closely, but I'm not sure if it was Nike specifically who requested the swoosh drawn on -- I interpreted it as they did it more in a joking manner, since VT is a huge Nike school.
  2. Nike might have designed the uni's, but OS had to approve them. The athletic department is the one to "blame" for this, though considering they likely were approved by a number of people, they probably think these will result in more merchandising profits. It's really all about the $$. I have a feeling that the general public doesn't have the same traditional uniform love that 90% of this board has, or else nobody from the NFL to the NCAA would be designing more future-esque uniforms.
  3. Over xmas I visited the John Paul Jones Arena at UVA for the first time, and was thoroughly impressed. I love how they incorporated the columns and Jefferson-esque architechture: The scoreboard is pretty nice too, six sided and whatnot (couldn't find a pic to do it justice, but looks like the new fancy ones)
  4. I was just wondering if anyone knew what font da Bears use - if it's custom or what. Also, are the numbers the same font as the lettering? (I'm particularly interested in the lettering)
  5. Bears wearing all blue tonite against the Packers.. I'll try to get some pix.
  6. I don't mind the current set, but the red facemask drives me nuts. It just looks so out of place.
  7. That looks sweet - definite upgrade from the Sixers current unis. Here are a few more: http://cache.gettyimages.com/xc/72856900.j...2BA097E0C5C81A5 http://cache.gettyimages.com/xc/72856893.j...0CD3E3E45A0FF2F http://cache.gettyimages.com/xc/72856855.j...9C922B366A0A2D3 http://cache.gettyimages.com/xc/72856844.j...79E388C1535CAA7
  8. I wonder who gets the photoshopping duties at ESPN for this.. I bet they come up with some interesting graphics that don't make it on the website.
  9. I did a quick google search to see if there are any Allen Iverson Nuggets jerseys out there, and sure enough, someone's selling them on ebay for 200 bucks. http://cgi.ebay.com/Allen-Iverson-Denver-N...7QQcmdZViewItem However, AI will probably have to make some kind of deal with DerMarr Johnson, a five year vet who already has the number.. http://www.nba.com/nuggets/roster/ Sure is strange to see Iverson on another jersey.
  10. I once asked a store manager at Clemson why they had purple and navy stuff in the store, and what were the official colors - she said it's officially purple but the orange/navy stuff sells much better (no surprise there), which is why they carry so much of it.
  11. Well, since Nike came up with the writing on the legs for Oregon, I don't know if it can count as "copying". They're simply using what they think works. (To many people on this boards' displeasure). Here's an update on the photo on there, it's gonna be a true black and not the greenish that you see: "UPDATE: The digital photo released by the FSU Sports Information Office (shown above) is a digital representation of the jersey prepared by Nike. According to the Sports Information Office, the jerseys themselves are a true black background, not a lighter shade as the image may represent at certain resolutions."
  12. I just saw this picture of the Adidas practice unis for the NBA - logo creep alert! This reminds me of Adidas going to court over the usage of the three stripes being a "logo" in tennis, since they have rules over how big logos can be - I believe they won the right to use the stripes. Anyway, this is the first time I've seen this ensemble, so I wanted to share: Are these just a template design for each and every team?
  13. This is a kind of damned if you do, damned if you don't situation. The purists want a traditional stadium name, that doesn't generate any money for the team. Fans want their teams to be successful, and $154.5 million certainly would help any payroll.
  14. This is what's listed on nba.com, so it's probably the most reliable info: Kobe chose the number 8 because his uniform number as a high schooler at the ADIDAS ABCD Camp was 143 (1+4+3=8), but the number switch was easy. "I wore the number 8 when I was a kid playing in the Italian leagues, so it was a smooth transition from number 33."
