  1. These are actually a hold over from last year, they wore them against Western Kentucky. But yeah, not great. Seems like it would be easy for Southern Miss to have a nice look with those colors, but outside of the current white jerseys they haven’t been able to do so since leaving Nike.
  2. Yeah, I think that was definitely part of the idea behind it. Was very ill-timed though with Texas A&M joining the conference and giving them a uniform with such a similar concept. Ultimately it all worked out though. Definitely intrigued to see what A&M rolls out this year.
  3. Interestingly, Mississippi State also wore very similar jerseys, but in the mid 80s (1984 and 1985 to be exact). Emory Bellard was the head coach of both those mid-70s A&M and mid-80s MSU teams, clearly he liked the style.
  4. Texas A&M actually wore both of those designs last year; they wore the v-neck pullovers from February through April and then the two-button design in May and June. Will be interesting to see if they do the same thing this year; definitely think the pullover is the *better* look, but the two-button design helps differentiate them from Mississippi State.
  5. Southern Miss getting the heathered dark gray treatment from Adidas, with exclusively white (no gold) accents. Doesn’t look bad.
  6. Mississippi State showed off new 2019/2020 uniforms for both the Men's and Women's teams at the "Maroon Madness" season kickoff event this on Friday night. The Men's Uniforms have some improvements, such as a more traditional rounded collar, but also some downgrades, such as the removal of the stripes on the shorts, what appears to be smaller back numbers, and random cut-off striping throughout the uniform. Still not a bad look though, better than some they've had in the past. The Women's Uniforms, on the other hand, are pure Adidas weirdness. Pretty plain overall, except for huge double stripes on the right side. Not a great look for one of the nation's elite programs. Good news is that I've been told this is a one year deal, and there will be a new throwback-inspired design for the 2020/2021 season.
  7. LSU going Gold/Purple/Gold against Utah State today, Successfully getting both G/P/G and W/P/W in during the same season.
  8. FWIW they did wear Gold/Purple/Gold last season against LA Tech. This Saturday will be the first time they’ve done White/Purple/White since 2017. I really like both looks; if it were up to me I’d wear purple jerseys twice a year, once with white helmets/pants and once with gold helmets/pants. They do have an additional home non-conference game with Utah State in a few weeks so it’s still possible that’s what they do this season.
  9. White/Maroon/White for Mississippi State tomorrow against Southern Miss. Powder blue helmets for Ole Miss tomorrow against Arkansas’s all white.
  10. I haven't done a concept on here in a while, but with Vanderbilt unveiling new uniforms this summer, it got me thinking about how just a few small changes could make a really solid set. As is, I would probably have the Commodores' uniforms (both the 2018 and 2019 set) as the worst in the SEC. That's not to say they're terrible- there are plenty of conferences in which they would be average, or in smaller ones, maybe even above average- but in the traditional-filled SEC, Vanderbilt occupies the lowest tier along with Kentucky and Missouri. Vanderbilt's new 2019 set- https://www.uniswag.com/blog/new-uniforms-for-vanderbilt-football Vanderibilt's new "Battle Ready" alternate uniform- https://www.uniswag.com/blog/vanderbilt-battle-ready-uniform On to the concept- the biggest problem with Vanderbilt's uniforms, which they did not fix at all with their 2019 updates, is the mismatching gold. The deep gold of the gold helmets and SEC patch is noticeably different than the pale gold used everywhere else throughout the uniform (including the black helmets and black/white/gold jerseys and pants). In this concept, I standardized the gold, using an in-between color that's closer to the lighter gold of the jerseys and pants. I tried to improve color balance throughout the set- gold returns to the white helmets and pants, while white returns to the gold helmets and pants. It could probably be argued that the lack of white on any of the black elements results in some color in-balance remaining, and that's fair, but I just think that going straight black and gold with a black base looks much better than trying to incorporate white. As far as design, I kept the anchor theme, adding the "link" stripe from the helmet to the pants, which they *kinda* did on the new 2019 uniforms, albeit in a sublimated way. The helmet designs are essentially the same, just with the aforementioned color changes. The jersey designs are fairly traditional, with a thick block number font, "Vanderbilt" on the chest, and a sublimated anchor on the sleeves (rather than the contrasting sleeve caps that occupy that area on both the 2018 and 2019 sets). Primary Uniforms: Black/Black/Black Gold/White/Gold White/Gold/White Alternate Home Combinations: Gold/Black/Gold Black/Black/Gold White/Black/White Alternate Home Combinations: Gold/White/Black Black/White/Black White/White/White Gold/White/White Black/White/Gold White/White/Gold Alternate Home Combinations: Black/Gold/White Black/Gold/Black Gold/Gold/White If you're a Vanderbilt baseball fan (or a fan of any SEC baseball team), you might also be interested in my 2019 SEC Baseball concepts, which I haven't previously posted on the CCSLC.
  11. Good catch. Looking back at high-level Adidas teams who have shown off their 2019 jerseys with the 150 patch, it looks like Miami will have the new collar while Louisville will not.
  12. Mississippi State debuted their 1950s-style white "State" uniforms on Saturday, as well as their updated maroon primary jerseys on Friday: https://www.hailstateunis.com/2019-baseball/mississippi-state-opens-completed-dudy-noble-with-sweep-of-youngstown-state You can add Vanderbilt to the list of Nike schools moving to the diamond swoosh; they wore updated versions of their gold, black pinstripe, and black jerseys this weekend, and also unveiled white and cream uniforms for 2019:
  13. More info on this series. The press release says that every Adidas P5 school’s men’s and women’s teams will be included.
  14. Five different uniforms have been shown/revealed that appear to be in Mississippi State’s lineup in 2019. However, I’ve been told that at least one of these will *not* be worn this season; fingers crossed for that being all-black. Three (maroon, white, black) are updated versions of the “85” uniforms, with thinner sleeve stripes (which prevents State and A&M from looking nearly identical) and the addition of the M over S logo to the sleeve. Two (white, gray) are based on a 1950’s era design and feature “State” on the front. Aside from the all-black, which gained popularity last year after being worn to an 8-3 record, including the Omaha berth clinching win at Vanderbilt, I think this has the makings of a very solid set. Along with what we’ve seen from A&M, Miami, and TCU, it should be a very good uniform season in college baseball.
  15. Listen, after all the years of one (or both) of the teams going out of their way to wear as little maroon as possible against each other, it’s nice to see them actually wearing school colors against one another for once.
  16. I obviously wasn’t a fan of how the game turned out, but I agree that Mississippi State vs Kentucky was an excellent uniform matchup. State looked incredible in Maroon/White/Gray, and I think Kentucky is one of the few teams that can pull off mononchrome with their shade of blue. https://www.hailstateunis.com/2018-football-season/uniforms-look-incredible-at-kentucky-in-matte-white-gray-combo
  17. Mississippi State is going with matte helmets, white jerseys, and gray pants at Kentucky tomorrow. Really excited about finally seeing this combo on the field. When they revealed the new matte helmet (with silver/gray stripe, decal, and facemask) last weekend my immediate reaction was it’d be perfect for this combo. The last time State went Maroon/White/Gray was at Arkansas in 2015, and it looked great then. With each uniform element having been updated since then, it should look even better now.
  18. Yes they are- that’s a Joe Moorhead thing. He did pride stickers as HC at Fordham and has now started doing them at State.
  19. Mississippi State has new matte maroon helmets, featuring silver facemasks, decals, and stripes. They also will be wearing stickers in memory of Alex Wilcox, a softball player who passed away from ovarian cancer earlier this year.
  20. New helmet decals for Mississippi State this season. The “M” on the maroon helmet is now maroon instead of white.
  21. Finally got a look at Mississippi State on the new Adidas template today. Same basic design, but a buttload of minor changes.
  22. http://amp.sunherald.com/sports/college/conference-usa/university-of-southern-mississippi/article214814690.html?__twitter_impression=true Article on the the USM uniform unveiling, confirms that: - The black and white jerseys shown were in fact practice jerseys. The actual ones haven’t been shipped in yet (Why not delay the unveiling until they have been??) -All of the pants will have a single stripe: gold stripe on the black pants, black stripe on the white and gold pants. -They’ll continue to wear multiple helmet designs, all featuring either the “Southern Miss” wordmark or Eagle logo.
  23. Florida should be fine as long as they revert back to mid-season form. I was at the final two games of that sweep in Starkville, and I could tell they weren’t exactly giving their best effort. Which, why would they- they won the SEC and got the #1 overall seed even though they lost 6 of their last 7. They were so dominant early on that everything was locked up.
  24. That’s expected to happen, but it won’t be probably won’t be announced until August/September if at all. With the switch to Primeknit in 2015, some teams announced it and others were more discrete and just “revealed” them by wearing them in the first game of the season. I know Miami’s equipment twitter account explicitly stated that the Primeknit pattern would be gone next season, implying a switch to A1. And Mississippi State wore last season’s pants in this year’s spring game/practices which usually implies that updated ones are coming in the fall. I would think at the least ASU, Nebraska, Indiana, Louisville, NC State, Miami, A&M, and Mississippi State should be on the A1 Template this fall.
  25. The tire tread is all but gone in the new template Adidas debuted in the AA game in January, and Washington almost certainly won’t have duct tape numbers on their regular uniforms. The fit is a problem, I agree, but I personally think they’ll benefit from getting rid of those excess details from their current Nike uniforms. Is Adidas perfect? Far from it- but acting like it’s the worst thing that can ever happen to a school is blowing things way out of proportion. As long as Washington goes for a more simple, classic look- something Adidas actually does a decent job with- they’ll be fine.
