  1. Flipping between this and the Virginia Tech game. Bills and orange-wearing Hokies look too close in hue.
  2. Can't decide if GT's numbers are too low or nameplates are too high. This isn't a bad color-on-color matchup.
  3. Toledo has the microscopic nameplates UA used with early South Carolina teams.
  4. So since Miami reverted to the stock nameplate font a couple weeks ago, Tulane has the worst now, yes? Oh! I forgot Louisville's San Andreas script.
  5. It's interesting that adidas announces this initiative the same week as Nike continues their N7 project, which touches on a lot of points made above.adidas is trying to throw money around to make a problem disappear. Nike is promoting some representative athletes to ensure the topic at hand stays relevant.
  6. Kevin Love out here looking like dude from "Her"
  7. Maybe Rovell can quantify how much LeBron cost adidas?
  8. NC State visits ECU next September...adidas has both programs so I'd expect a Pirates/Redcoats theme.
  9. The schedule of teams wearing the Nike N7 turquoise uniforms is as follows: November 13: Oklahoma State (Men’s) November 14: Nevada (Men’s Rainbow Classic) November 17: Florida State (Men’s) November 18: San Diego State (Men’s) November 18: Gonzaga (Men’s) November 20: Oklahoma State (Women’s) November 21: New Mexico (Women’s) November 23: Stanford (Women’s) November 24: Haskell Indian Nations University (Men’s and Women’s) November 25: New Mexico (Men’s) November 27: Nevada (Women’s) December 1: Nevada (Men’s) December 19: Florida State (Men’s) - game site on Seminole land in Sunrise, Florida
  10. This national awareness/swag alternates mashup is nauseating. One or the other please. If that restricts alternates to Sept, so be it.
  11. Look how big that Adidas logo is on the shirt and pants. So so tacky. Fits right in with the corporate speak - makes "inspired by the jaws of Husky Stadium" sound almost honest. You can always count on adidas to make a bad situation even worse. Yes, let's take a Miami Nights alternate and military pandering alternate and MASH THEM UP. That's the ticket.
  12. I actually think that design would look good on regular football pants. Minus the number and 'ducks' wordmark. Nike is trying to push this line as team apparel for 7-7 spring/summer competitions, with numbers and all. There's more info in the Fall 16 Nike Team Sports PDF, but I think the pieces are $60 per.I think most college programs are fine with having their equipment staff heat press jersey numbers onto mass-ordered $20 legend tees and fly shorts.
  13. ^if that Washington patch is what I think it is, we may have a new leader for most pretentious fad jersey in history.
  14. Oregon's Jeff Lockie wearing his backup Taylor Alie's hat after Alie replaced Lockie. The ironic part is Lockie should have a hat as he's usually the backup to Adams.
  15. Beyond the design, I can't believe how cheap the nameplates look. Askew, easily stretched, just shoddy.
  16. 3) Falcons got a bulk shipment of plain Nike t-shirts and took them to a local screen printer to slap on a variant logo.Modified logos for in-house use have been in play for awhile. My high school's mascot was a raider that would be holding a baseball bat, LAX/hockey/field hockey stick depending on which team it was for. I've seen a t-shirt with Rice's flying owl logo clenching a dumbbell in its beak. Ohio State has a special logo for its players that have the most experience and get time off from practice. All that goes to say it might've been a leftover Nike pitch, but probably not something anyone spent a bunch of time on.
  17. Yeah Ki-Jana will best be known for the PSU duds with the alternate color Nike+Swoosh sleeve patch. Was Penn State the first CFB team to display Nike on their jersey?
  18. How about you just say you don't like them, and don't try to speak to others about why they do? Nothing is more annoying then having your opinion dismissed as just "nostalgia". I dont know what nostalgia means but I like the 90s unis because they remind me of my youth. I started following Miami when they had that bad boy rep. I was a teen at the time so it all coincided. How is that possible? You're in your late 30s-early 40s (guessing based on the information you've given) and don't know what nostalgia means? There's a little thing called Google that could help you out.
