  1. Weird, good find. I assume the blue version is new to represent their affiliation with the Royals, whereas they had been affiliated with red teams Cardinals and Astros for the last 15+ years.
  2. Team President Larry Baer said they originally didn't have names on the back in the 2000s to preserve the throwback vibes of the new ballpark experience. Then they didn't want to change in the 2010s as the Giants won 3 titles wearing NNOB. Now, as they are in the midst of a down cycle and using 50-60 players each season, he said it was an appropriate time to make the change. We can all be cynical and say it's to sell more jerseys, but I really think it's as simple as saying that many fans of the team weren't able to identify who #59 was when they have 18 different starting left fielders each year.
  3. Not exactly the most glamorous name for the fancy new Vegas Bowl but gotta go where the money is I suppose.
  4. Good question. I think the Seahawks will eventually move to a newer template and possibly even prioritize their action green color, so these Superbowl/LOB era uniforms will someday be worn as 'throwbacks'.
  5. Every year I look forward to the Army-Navy uniforms. It's nice to see real military tributes and not just 'we made our logo into a flag logo'. The thought and research that goes into these mean something other than just generic 'patriotism' and 'cool jerseys'. Another well done round of design on both sides.
  6. Call me a homer but I love the new one-off uniforms. The team and Nike have really learned what works well for one-offs and improved over the years. This uniform has a lot of details that make it feel special, like the starry galaxy pattern on the helmet to the pattern throughout and the back helmet bumper.
  7. Mining City seems odd and not exactly rolling off the tongue. Butte Blasters would have been...amazing. Butte/Mining City Powder Monkeys sounds like an 1800's slur.
  8. I think the powder blues work well, but only as an alternate. The helmets should definitely be their primary lids though. I just don't like the powder blue mixing with the navy, red, and grey they have.
  9. Presenting the Copa identities for 2020! 22 new teams participating makes 92 overall participants. Read more about the names and looks here.
  10. Shoutout to Skye Dillon of Skye Design Studios, constantly putting out quality stuff.
  11. Old tweet, but the MILB's Copa de la Diversion uniforms will roll out tomorrow. I assume most teams will unveil tomorrow but some may trickle in later once they receive actual inventory of uniforms and caps.
  12. Oh buddy if you don't like those large numbers please don't look at how large our uniform numbers were last year! We technically downsized this season.
  13. Ah, thanks for the correction, I hadn't noticed that before!
  14. Nice looks at Utah's alternate helmet details. Student section name/logo on the nose bumper is something I haven't seen before.
  15. I liked the set much more when I thought it was black. The red numbers are awful, the purple numbers with red outline on the sleeves are fine and should have been used throughout. Not a fan of the random red piping on jersey sleeves and neckline, but the red logo accents and facemask are all creative and nice touches.
  16. Yikes, dude consistently comes here providing detailed updates for most of the west-coast teams but heaven forbid he add in some fan commentary on the uniforms. This thread has been exhausting lately, and yes, I am a Ducks fan. Sue me. Isn't the whole point of this thread to have a discussion on CFB uniforms? If you like one, say so, and if you don't like one, say so; but straight up trying to call someone out for being a fan of his teams uniforms is another level of ridiculous. Every week we get the same tired 'Oregon ruined CFB' argument going in the comments. Can we just go back to discussing individual uniforms civilly?
  17. A team being named the Unicorns? Where am I, a Brandiose-led MILB thread? Jokes aside, I wish there was a concept for a small school brand built around unicorns from the 70s.
  18. Me: Oh it can't have been that bad. *Googles pictures* Me: Oh no...
  19. I don't think it can be understated how great the Beavs homecoming uniforms were last year. I'm always a fan of bringing back Benny. Especially considering they played Cal's beautiful stripes, this game was exactly how I want OSU to look.
  20. Thanks, I knew I had to be missing one somewhere! Yeah, the changes haven't been all that crazy compared to the affiliation shuffle, Elmore group remix, and California league deaths of the last few years. Also, IE Norwich: Give me Narwals or give me Navigators gosh darn it!
  21. Love the sharp edges on this. It really makes it feel classic but modern at the same time.
  22. I realize it's a bit late, but let's appreciate some teams that will be leaving us next season. There aren't nearly as many teams relocating this off-season as last. The AA (Angels) Mobile Bay Bears are relocating to Huntsville, Alabama to become the Rocket City Trash Pandas. They had been in Mobile since moving from North Carolina in 1997. The New Orleans Baby Cakes (AAA Marlins) will be moving to Wichita, Kansas to play as the yet to be named Wichita ________. They had been in New Orleans since they moved from Denver in 1993 (as the Zephyrs).
  23. One of the more interesting recent Sacramento high school matchups, Inderkum vs Del Oro, in a battle of black/gold winged helmet (Delo Oro's logo is the Southern Miss eagle head) and direct Mizzou logo helmet but with shiny gold and matte navy look.
  24. Wasn't this mascot controversy Disney trying to update Sparky? ASU and Oregon are the only 2 schools in the country to have a logo designed by Walt Disney. Our old Stomping Donald logo was only allowed to be used because of a famous photo from the 50's depicting Walt and our AD and other UO staff hanging out wearing Oregon jackets with an old Donald logo on them until an actual contractual agreement was reached much later.
  25. CSU going back to its roots this weekend vs Toledo. Orange and green, not orange and black as Rovell incorrectly joked about.
