  1. For this most recent Seahawks set, I'm intrigued in the possibility of a green alternate jersey to make a Silver/Green/Silver combo.
  2. To be fair, it was made during the end of adidas' stint. So, as long as the Bucks plan to keep, Nike can't just force them to stop using it.
  3. I like this version of the pinstripes better than the original. From afar, the red pinstripes muddied up the black uniform in a way that I could never like them. Only thing I would change would be to add a bit of white in the striping pattern to match the wordmarks and numerals.
  4. So, Memphis has a new court..... I like the apron (baseline) design, but I'm not fond of the blue court. Designing the key would've been good enough.
  5. That's a nice nod to their endzone design. It'd be greatly improved by matching pant stripes.
  6. The Saints should also slap their helmet striping onto those gold pants.
  7. Nebraska v Colorado is a great uniform pairing. What a callback to the Big XII of old.
  8. I'd be in favor of them changing the striping pattern to match the helmet's striping. It would be much cleaner.
  9. As others have stated, the gold mask doesn't look bad. I just wish that UA would give UCLA a similar number font to Clarendon, at least if they can't obtain the exact font.
  10. That City Jersey for "A-Town" would be cool if it were just a fan fashion jersey, but I can't imagine it being well for an actual professional uniform.
  11. I think the "Core" court floor is good enough. The only change I'd make is taking off the wordmarks as the logos inside the arc. The other two are unnecessary.
  12. I think Dallas, easily. They are in need of a brand update. Their logos and uniforms from the early 2000s have lost their luster long ago, not to mention that their last couple of alternate uniforms have been terribly drab.
  13. After having time to go over the last few weeks of reveals, here are my thoughts: Pitt: For the most part, I like the rebrand and the return to their previous color scheme. I really would've preferred they use a numeral font similar to the one found on their next-to-last set. A traditional block font is immensely better than what they went for. Also glad they didn't try any alternate uniforms. Michigan STATE: If the Spartans want an alternate, why not just use a throwback or fauxback? This design is just offensive. There's too much of a clash with all that's going on, the oversized wordmark and numerals, lime wordmark and pants, it's just overwhelming and not good at all. Baylor: I don't like it. Just another lifeless, stripped down "design" that screams practice uniforms, which unfortunately has been a trend with Nike. Sleeve, pant, and helmet stripes, plus outlined numerals would pick this set up by miles. In my head, I thought Baylor would be OK in yellow, but in actuality, I feel they should've kept the old gold; the omission of black uniform elements is an added plus. West Virginia: Once again, I don't like this. Another strip down of any distinguishable features or design. Why not build off of the White/Slaton/Devine era look or even their coal-mining Pro Combat alternate? I don't really care for the number font, although it's better than the predecessor. Oregon State: Solid design. Finally some striping, although it irks me that, at least in the photoshoot, the helmet striping only matches the away set; overall I think it's an upgrade over the previous set. Wordmark on the chest should have either been omitted or just "Beavers." Missouri: Not sure what to make of the psuedo-retro push that they're making... I enjoy seeing the return of the helmet stripe, but be consistent and put them on all of the pants too. I'd be content if they left their jerseys as is however, with a few minor changes of course.
  14. The WNBA is set for a brand refresh, with a full roll out, set prior to the league's 2020 season. Link: http://www.espn.com/wnba/story/_/id/26469391/wnba-announces-refresh-brand-new-logo
  15. I'm thoroughly impressed that they've kept it under wraps this long, being that we live in the the era of leaked info, but the Warriors are wearing throwbacks in nod to the 2002-2010 set at home tonight. https://twitter.com/warriors/status/1115052460530208771?s=19
  16. After having the time to process the set after the reveal, I've gotta say. This set isn't bad. I absolutely love this shade of green for the Jets. It's not over-saturated and gives just enough pop to contrast well off of black and white. I like the helmet and the finish, but I wish they had different plans for the logo, only so that it fit with the rest of the look. At this point, I'm indifferent on the black facemask, as we've seen it in their history before. The jerseys are clean. Simple, but not void of any character at all (death stares at Jacksonville), they probably should've gone in a different route with the striping. We've seen plenty of concepts on these very forums that have produced better results. I don't mind the wordmark, but I wish it were smaller. Can't not mention the disconnect amongst the fonts (logo, wordmark, and numerals all differ). A numeral font more suited to the look would've been best, maybe something slightly italic. The pants are meh at best, but they at least match the jerseys. Could've brought the tapered stripes all the way down to the end where it meets the knee. Socks should've come with stripes like their previous set. The black uniform elements look nice, due to the green being able to stand out, but I absolutely don't like it for the Jets. It's only best used as a tertiary color. Overall, I'd say this look is decent. We can be relieved that we avoided worse possibilities, but it's a downgrade from the previous. But, imagine that "Gotham Green" (smh at the name) replacing the previous shade on the last set....
  17. I hate it for he and Portland, especially for it to happen this late in the season. And I think the worst thing about the injury is that we see that incident plenty, in which players come down on someone's foot. Nurkic just happen to be unlucky enough to be the rare occasion that it ended up gruesome, and not the common ankle sprain. Get well soon.
  18. My thoughts on TCU's new set: I can't get past thinking of the Dilophosaurus from Jurassic Park when I see this collar. BUT, I do like it. As said by @j'villejags, I think the pattern being matched with the jersey in a tonal fashion would've worked best, especially for the road jersey. I also like that, despite the design's overwhelming size, it is the focal point of the set (glad they kept the number font the same too). My gripes would probably be with the lack of pants stripes/design, which hasn't been a good trend. The two-toned facemask is unnecessary, and I kinda would like to see the purple chrome helmet return in the rotation. As a collective, I think it's decent; but we all seem to be in accord, we need to see it on field first.
  19. So they meshed 2018's uniforms with 2015's????? Meh.
  20. In regards to TCU, I'd only like to see red primarily as a tertiary color within a one-off set. They do just fine in white, black, and purple. I'd just suggest they own a design element, but don't go negative, like the disaster that was the frog skin set; That way, they'll be distinguishable vs a Northwestern (easily recognized via northwestern stripes), who has the same color scheme.
  21. Kentucky ruining what would have been a good-looking Citrus Bowl. Instead of going Blue-White-Blue to counter Penn State, they go Chrome-White-White. And get this, UK has white facemasks, white helmet stripe AND white logo decals. SMH.
  22. Thoughts about the "Earned" uniforms: East: Toronto: I like this better than either gold version. I just wished it said "Toronto" instead of "North". Boston: I don't like it as much as this year's City jersey. Mainly due to the collar and cuffs being white and not white striped. Maybe using old gold instead of yellow might have helped too. Philadelphia: Meh, just a swap from grey to white. Cleveland: The story they went with for the uniform is forced. This could've been better. Indiana: A grey to white color swipe that was beneficial. Both supporting colors are allowed to pop, which is great. Miami: TI love it. The Vice look is 3 for 3 in my book. All that's left is to see a cyan colored uniform. Milwaukee: Probably the best re-do of any of the City sets. Absolutely love this one. Great nod to the "Irish Rainbow" set and the colors are well-balanced. Washington: I love the shade of red, but as the previous two Wizards City uniforms have shown, they could have used a better design. West: Houston: As kimball suggested earlier, had yellow been a supporting color, it would've been better, but the Rockets refuse to come up with something that looks great. Golden State: I always like to see the Warriors in yellow, but the dark grey isn't helping this set. Blue would've been the ideal secondary color with a striping pattern of B/W/B down the sides. Portland: The wordmark and numerals, in white, being outlined in black make for a great yet simple look for the Blazers. OKC: A much improved version of their previous orange sunset uniforms. I just wish to see the "OKC" also be outlined to match the numerals. Utah: A great, strong look that allows the green and yellow to speak for the uniform. Also helps that the collar and cuffs are yellow. New Orleans: Meh. The City uniform leaves a lot to be desired, therefore the color swap leaves me feeling the same. San Antonio: Can you guys be more creative than just "Camo"? Minnesota: Clean look. Although I'd much rather see a callback to either their '89-'96 set or their '96-08 set.
  23. I'd really appreciate the Ravens' purple pants more if they had thin gold stripes right in between where the white stripe meets the black stripe. That way, the gold on the helmet & jerseys have a matching element with the pants. The pattern should be B/G/W/G/B.
  24. Wanted to hear your thoughts about conference realignment talks popping up again. Rumor has it, the Big Ten is targeting Oklahoma and Texas by the 2024-25 season, per a report on 24/7 Sports. Link: Big Ten Targeting OU and Texas
