  1. Reminds me of this childhood favorite:
  2. We haven't gone with a striped helmet since before Greg Schiano. Last year's set also did not have pants stripes. These are subtle changes, but I think important ones in that they incorporate a bit more black which balances out the look while also differentiating us from Wisconsin/Nebraska/Indiana.
  3. They should have just taken NC State's old digs: Put "RUTGERS" across the chest: And you have a modern day classic:
  4. Probably one of the few 90s designs I actually really like...
  5. That's ugly IMO, but if the recruits/players like it and if it sells at the student bookstore, go for it. Would have much preferred a more subtle application like:
  6. To play devil's advocate, "Row the Boat" actually makes some sense given that Minnesota is the "Land of 10,000 Lakes"
  7. I am sad that I missed out on all the Rutgers talk 5 pages back. Argh...
  8. Those look awesome. The way they incorporated the stripe in the sub layer is something I don't usually like, but it's done really well here.
  9. A bit cookie-cutter, but I kinda like 'em!
  10. Agree - that looks like a HS knock-off of WVU. That's a shame... If they were going to go all paint-by-Nike, I would have liked to see them use this lightly-used template:
  11. ***Fixing my prior post*** Here's the NC State template I wish Rutgers had used: It's just the right balance of red(scarlet), white, and black (esp. the black facemask!). The thick white stripe outlined in black takes cues from the Block R: In fact, this is what we used to look like: We should never have gone away from this look. It was perfect, IMO, especially paired with the Block R...
  12. Not bad, but I would have preferred an NC State knock-off. Back in the day, that's what we actually looked like. I have no idea why we went away from this look. It was pretty much perfect....... [Edit]: sorry for bad links -- will edit later
  13. I didn't particularly like that set's piping. It looks as silly as this to me:
  14. I actually like Rutgers' old knight logo (not-so-affectionately known as "the battleship on fire" among alumni).
  15. I've gotta say, I'm pleasantly surprised by UA. Starting to wish they offered Rutgers (now with adidas) more $$$...
  16. edjb93: The entire series was well thought out and a pleasure to go through. I know you've already done Rutgers, but if you're still interested in some ideas, I have a concept that I would love to see you mock up.
  17. I like traditional numbers better. This was by far their best look, IMO:
  18. Fun trivia: It's actually a police logo designed by perhaps the most famous jeweler in the world. The logo has a connection to Tiffany's. The famous interlocking "NY" logo predates the Yankees. It first was designed by Tiffany and Co. as part of a Medal of Valor for John McDowell, an NYPD officer who was shot in the line of duty in 1877.
