  1. Adidas makes other templates.. blame those schools for choosing the techfit stuff, not Adidas for having the option..
  2. The logo is on the uniforms though
  3. Do you have any photos of the Panthers doing this? I haven't found any evidence of them ever wearing 4 differently colored elements at once.. and I guess you're correct on the Rams on a technicality (they only referred to their blue as "blue" and didn't consider the helmet to be a "different" color, although we know it was)..
  4. They don't have 4 different colored elements. That would be like white helmet, royal jersey, red pants, navy socks.. they don't do anything of the sort.. Dolphins use aqua, orange, white, and navy, Ravens use black, purple, gold, white Etc.. I'm referring to teams with 4 differently colored articles of clothing (3 + helmet)
  5. Not sure where to post this, but I can recall discussions in the past talking about teams using 4 differently colored elements in the uniform (helmet, jersey, pants, socks).. Not sure how many teams have done it in the past, but the current NY Giants (blue, white, grey, red), and 97-13 Bucs (pewter, red, white, black) are the only ones that come to mind.. interested if there are others..
  6. Maybe the average American NOT from actual Dixie.. those of us actually from the region likely don't view it through the same lens as everyone else.. but everyone else thinks we're all a bunch of backwards rednecks, so I'm not sure what to say.. Georgia is in Dixie and voted for Biden, so the general opinion of "Dixie" is about like an a$$hole, everyone's got one, and they all stink.. Now, if you want to judge the place that held mock slave auctions accordingly, do it on THOSE merits.. but not because of some unrelated and unofficial name
  7. That's only because nobody on their team wears the skill cut or the QB cut.. every single player wears the lineman cut, which is somewhat designed to be smaller and suck up snug around the pads.. I'd argue that Nike should simply make the yellow middle stripe go all the way around even on the lineman cut, but either way, it's a nice aesthetic imo..
  8. With all the alternate uniforms, double-printing certain numbers, and a variety of other things that contribute to large quantities of jerseys, you could have literally hundreds of jerseys hanging on a rack.. having a nice TV number on the sleeve or shoulder makes finding the exact number much quicker than having to reach in and either space two jerseys apart enough to see the numbers or pull one out to see the number.. with no TV numbers it's guess work.. and the amount of extra random times people request jerseys is pretty staggering - from recruiting, to photo shoots, to public appearances and interviews, to events and displays, and obviously game day setup.. not to mention putting everything back away doubles all that work - which is essentially guesswork.. may sound lazy or silly to you, but when it's a huge portion of your daily routine, it adds up quickly.. it's like getting a deck of cards that's in a certain order, and trying to "pick" a specific card.. you can probably get within 3 or 4 of the right one, but very rarely will you be able to just snag the 8 of clubs on the first try.. and that's only 52 cards.. they deal with about twice that many per set.. also, it's not what they "signed up for", especially if they "signed up" at a place that had TV numbers when they signed up, then got rid of them.. taking pride in doing a great job and going the extra mile to make certain things special is great - and it's much easier to do if you're not being slowed down throughout the other parts of your job.. and that job is pretty extensive.. there's a lot that equipment managers deal with behind the scenes that nobody knows about or thinks about.. pretty much anything that can be called "equipment" often gets dumped on their plate.
  9. Makes life hell for the equipment staff.. even simple things like quickly snagging a jersey from the rack takes longer without TV numbers..
  10. I also couldn't stop staring at those jerseys... Mainly because I was watching the game
  11. There aren't any D2 looks that bad
  12. Clemson never flips their paw print logo
  13. To be fair, they've been wearing grey pants at least since Archie Manning..
  14. The newer 2D logo (without the wings) would've been much better.. the triple-wing-that's-really-supposed-to-be-his-cape-thing looks ridiculous..
