    Eh, I think blue on the road is far better. I’d like to see someone do a mock-up of what an alternate white pants would look like.

     

    I'm surprised by how much I like the shoulder numbers, looks like a classic look. I’m good for either that or the flying Elvis, both are nice.

    Somebody posted a mock up of white pants on here. Here’s how it would look. spacer.png


  2. From the article detailing the changes:

     

    Quote

    Several other NFL teams changed their uniforms ahead of the 2020 season, and while there was speculation that the Patriots change might revive the popular red uniforms of previous decades, a current NFL uniform rule makes it impossible to wear the red throwbacks while respecting the integrity of that uniform.

    NFL rules state that teams can only use one helmet for the season, and silver helmets have come to represent the modern era of the New England Patriots. A silver helmet with the "Flying Elvis" logo just doesn't work with the red uniforms, which, of course, feature a white helmet with the iconic "Pat Patriot" logo.

    Ferron did leave the door open that, if the NFL ever changed the rule to allow more than one helmet per season, the red uniforms could certainly make a comeback as the team's alternate.

    Surprised at the already overwhelmingly negative comments. Surely with more to come.

     

     

    They got it right. I love this look for them.

    In total agreement here. Love the look. There’s no doubt they’ll have silver pants and a new color rush look. 
     

    I love these.

    I hope there's something unexpected.  Logo on the sleeve, 3 bar UCLA stripes, plus TV numbers on the shoulder?  That's a packed mess.

    What am I missing here. Why do people think there will be UCLA stripes AND TV numbers? 
     

    They’re obviously not going to do this. Look at the existing color rush. They don’t have TV numbers. Why would they introduce that here?

     

    Edit: Ah ok my mistake. Man that’s gonna look bad.

    Maybe with Brady out of the picture, the Patriots' slice of the local market will revert to northern rednecks like the olden days. I can see a lot of people wearing that jersey and driving a contractor pickup truck with New Hampshire plates. 

    Being a Pats fan since the 80s this got a chuckle out of me. I remember being able to walk into old Foxboro at half time for free to watch the second half. Times have def changed for the better.

    Patriots, possibly 14 April. Falcons as well yet to confirm dates.

    I’d love for the Pats to debut next week. Where did you find this date?


  7. Florida State getting rid of the crossed spears on the back of the helmet. Kind of a downgrade, IMO.

    I believe the crossed spears were supposed to be an homage to the state flag. First time we saw the new design was the June edition of the Jimbo Fisher Football Camp a couple weeks ago.

    Geoff is correct and the fact that it was an homage to the state flag could have been part of the problem; some believe the diagonal red bars are an homage to the Confederacy.

    Sounds like people who need to have something to complain about. I don't remember the spears connecting to the back being a way to tie in to the Florida flag. With a white helmet it would make sense. With gold, black and garnet helmets it doesn't.

    I'm no Florida historian but a simple google search will show you why they choose the style of the flag. Florida started as a Spanish territory. The banner of the Spanish Empire was flown during that time. That flag is called 'Cross of Burgundy' which is a white flag with red diagonal crosses. This is what the current flag pays homage to. The state of Alabama's flag is that way for the same reason. Southern Alabama was originally part of Spanish Florida.


  8. Glow in the Dark, what will Nike think of next :lol:

    CMEmn19UEAAZwmp.jpg

    And when exactly are they going to be playing a game in the dark so you can see this effect? Can't believe how many people believe they'd actually wear uniforms that glow-in-the-dark. It's a promotional thing they're doing for their poster and on department-wide social media accounts. If people would look at the jerseys they were wearing today at their media day, they'd see they're exactly the same jerseys from the past season.
    It's just the same 3M reflective material Nike has been using for years. The only time the "glow in the dark" effect will be visible in games is in pictures when photographers use flashes.

    There is a difference between reflective and glow. This is not light reflecting off the material. This has color in it. It's clearly a photoshop done to promote the 'glow in the dark' poster. It looks awesome but in no way will this happen on a football field. Come on guys we're smarter than that...


  9. Oregon may be ditching the helmet wings on either some or all of their helmets, based on this photo from their Instagram account and those close to the program. In the photo, the black helmet now looks to be matte black with no chrome wings. Not sure I like them using multiple helmet designs since it'd look a little incohesive.

    I can slightly see what looks to be black wing decals on the side of the helmet. Maybe.

    Based off of what we've seen with this new A&M black helmet I think it's a safe bet that these Oregon black helmets will do the same thing.

    I think you're right.

    It might look cool if they actually played in the dark. (Obvious photoshop below)

    Won't these helmets just be black under the lights?

    Yea good point. I would hope the designer of the 'technology' would have tested this in real life conditions. We'll all find out soon.

  11. This is just an observation over the first few weeks of the season. I follow college football and would be considering a fan of it, but flipping channels trying to see what games were on, 3/4 of the time I had no idea who was playing at first glance. All these uniforms dilute the brand, and for anyone who says that Oregon's brand hasn't been diluted, it has. Oregon's knack for changing, a few years ago, was the talk of the college football world as they screamed "look at us". Now, they are just one of a hundred different programs that pulls out a new uniform combination each week. Oregon's brand was to be different and edgey, and now they are normal and their brand is common and no one pays attention to what they do.

    Good thing at second glace you could read the on screen score box and see who's playing.

    Come on guys it's not THAT bad out there. You can tell without stressing too hard who is who. It's not like Minnesota comes out dressed in Maze and Blue or Oregon is wearing Orange and White.

    We should rename the thread to 'college football 2014 season COMPLAINTS'
