  1. So with a new head ball coach and the recent excitement of landing the #1 recruit in the nation, a lot of media and social outlets have been talking about "bringing the Mizzou brand back to glory" and whatnot. I think this would be an excellent time to finally look into updating our plain-Jane uniforms a little. I actually don't mind the simplicity of the current sets. Personally, I think they would look better if they had some striping down the sides or something additional, but the clean look is not too shabby. I whipped up this quick mock-up of what I would really like to see. The biggest addition, of course, is a return to showing the big "M" on the word-mark. Our best sustained period of success was when the Norm Stewart-led teams of the 70s, 80s and early 90s wore uniforms with this key feature. I know it wasn't strictly a Missouri design standard (Michigan, of course, wore this similar style during their National Championship year in 1989), but I always attributed this design to Mizzou, even before I lived here and became an alumni and life-long fan. Keeping the current set and adjusting really just the front of the jerseys is a pretty simple change that would tip the hat towards our history a bit and still show in a fresh and unique design for today. Now, I'm not the greatest in Photoshop and these are just quick mock-ups a devised to convey this idea. So no need to rip me apart as I know they are a little rough and not the best artistically. I just wonder if there are any thoughts from fellow fans about what you'd like to see with updates for the uniform sets moving forward. M.I.Z.....
  2. There's really only one solution..."KC All-Star Meat Coma 2012" Hell yeah! Three days of pig, cow and bird, slaw, beans(the best on earth) and taters (yeah I just referred to potato products as 'taters', what's up?) and every single type of Boulevard you can drink (extra happy-time if they make some more chocolate brew for All-Star Weekend). We'll hit up LC's, Jack Stack, OK Joe's, Gates, Arthur Bryant's, Wyandotte, R.J.'s Bob-Be-Que Shack, Winslow's, Johnny's, and any other place if we can still move. Some might think they just tasted the greatest concoction on earth, others might still prefer TX, Carolina or Memphis style, but all will win and all will have to buy pants one size larger. Bring it! Back on topic, I wasn't the biggest fan with the logo the first time I saw it, but the more I look at it, the more I love it (aside from the aforementioned color imbalance. I would love to see gold AL unis next summer.
