    Rakeem Boyd looked like the ghost of Darren McFadden during his long TD run this weekend in our new old home uniforms. ūüėć




    I remember watching the highlights of this game.


    First thought: "Those look a lot like Oklahoma's unis."


    Second thought: "Who gives a :censored:, those are freakin' gorgeous!"

    I know that player is trying to look all pumped and everything, but it looks more like he's going through an existential crisis what with all the head grabbing and screaming.

    I use to be the VC at Cookman and, when I got there, I was told that BCU was "the Oregon of HBCU". Take that for what it's worth. In addition, I saw these helmets first hand, they have the numbers on the left side and "Wildcats" on the right. But the decals are either clear or chrome too. I wish we had a consistent look, but... oh well. Usually BCU does wear maroon and gold (ie yellow), but throws a lot of black in there too. They wore chrome for the Flordia Classic last year, but i don't recall any of time they deviated from the traditional colors. 


    I remember being frustrated last season when they played at Nebraska, because they only wore one of their team colors, and had too much grey. The game was at midday, and on the broadcast, with the glaring sunlight, it looked much worse than this picture would make it seem. (EDIT: Broadcast glare example)





  4. Nebraska alt full reveal today. I would be just fine with this being in the rotation once or twice a season for the foreseeable future.


    This is the obvious black jersey design that Nebraska fans have wanted for years, and somehow Adidas has only now figured it out.

    Are those red stripes on the shoulder above the Nebraska patch or are my eyes deceiving me?


    I most certainly see the red on there, but the placement makes me think that might actually be red TV numbers as opposed to a stripe.

    Northwestern Wildcats, Wisconsin Badgers Reveal Fauxback Football Uniforms

    August 13, 2019 - 17:50 PM

    As part of Under Armour‚Äôs ‚ÄúSchool Heritage‚ÄĚ line, Northwestern and Wisconsin on Tuesday afternoon unveiled fauxback uniforms for their matchup in Madison on Sept. 28. Both teams will be outfitted in brand new designs that are meant to mimic the [‚Ķ]




    Great... so now we will have an Under Armour rendition of the great "N" vs. "W" calamity from a few years back. yuck

    Of the last idk, let's say 20 national champs, how many of them have had out there, modernized, swagged out uniforms? Not many I can tell you that. Winning 110% matters more to me



    can we stop pretending like this isn't a subjective thing (something that it is perfectly acceptable to agree to disagree on). Sure, by and large, it's a safe bet to say that the overwhelming majority of top recruits would seem to prioritize team success over "swag", but i don't think that anyone was levying a claim contrary to that (highest educated estimate put out there was 10%-20% of athletes for whom uniforms was a major consideration, i believe?).


    Making claims like "winning matters 110% more [period]", in reference to the opinion of student-athletes is not only absurd because you are purporting to know the often undisclosed specifics behind the decisions made by recruits, but there is also significant room for error with the conflation between the the National Champs and the teams that recruit the most talented kids (where, while there is overlap, it is most certainly not a 1:1 ratio of recruiting class ranking => on-field success).


    I echo @bucky_bleichert 's sentiment here. Agree to disagree.

    Zoom in. The white jersey has a white outline on that purple number set


    very confusing tonal options they went with. Much like the Oregon ducks in some of their choices. 

    i believe what @bkknight95 means is that the purple jersey's numbers have an outline similar to the color of the numeral itself, while the white jersey's numerals contrast with their outline (white outlined in gold is light/light, purple outlined in white is dark/light). The farther away you get, the more your eyes will blur the two together, thus giving the white/gold numerals a heavier visual presence against a dark backdrop than the purple/white ones against a white backdrop.

    I don't have a source I can link to, but there's a rumor swirling that Nebraska will be unveiling a true alternate uniform this year.  Alternate as in, "3rd option, other than Home/Away," and not just a one-off special uniform worn only once. 


    Will post something once I have an article or something I can link to.

    Maybe they're just adding red/red back into the mix?




    I honestly wouldn't mind seeing that look a couple times a year, plus they wouldn't need to add any new elements.

    Oh, gotcha.  Agreed on that, too.  I've said it before, but for some reason the different Spaceman 4000 fabrics that Adidas rolls out look much different depending on the color of the jersey.  People griped about the tire tread UCLA uniforms and Tennessee, among others, but for whatever reason Nebraska's shade of red hides the tech knitting or whatever it's called.  UCLA's shade of blue showed EVERYTHING.  


    It's like the NCAA equivalent of a slimming black cocktail dress.  Certain colors just magically hide fabric texture and the only thing I can think of is some wavelength/spectrum thing about certain colors being very strong.

    I always assumed it was just the way the fabric dye reacted to the different materials. Like if they use the same color of blue on the "traditional fabric" elements as the "elastic textile", it stands to reason that the color would "take" to the different materials differently, especially seeing as the elastic material seems to naturally be a bit darker.

    The "official" miteam site only allows you to decorate stock jerseys (unless you choose the FilthyQuick template).. the other site is 100% legit and features all of their other current full-custom templates.. 


    Okay so i think i've got this somewhat figured out:

    The "adicustom" domain in the first link is not an Adidas domain. When i removed the "uniforms" tag and just went to "adicustom.com", it took me to a fairly standard standard catalog page. However, many of the links in the nav bar of that page re-direct you to "adidas-team.com". Upon exploring *that* nav bar, i found multiple links to pages referencing "Agron." If you follow those links, you can find some poorly made sites, a couple of which reference "Agron, Inc." (Bloomberg overview of Agron, Inc). It seems to me that Agron, as a licensed distributor of adidas products, is just trying to make their sites look like the official Adidas catalog site. But i mean, hey; their customization interface seems to be superior so they can go on ahead.

    *also worth noting that on https://adidas-team.com under the "Order Products" tab, they do link the official Adidas "miTeam" site above their own "Uniform Configurators", i would guess at Adidas' behest


    So, while technically not "an official Adidas site" in the sense that it's not run by Adidas, it is an independent distributor officially licensed to sell Adidas products, so by that measure it technically is an official site.

    I'm REALLY interested in seeing how those shoulder stripes terminate in the back. Do they just stop where the back edge of the sleeve cap ends? Do they divert down the side/back of the jersey? Do they taper back under the nameplate? Do they join INTO a color-blocked nameplate?

    This is the Baylor uniform. The traditional gold helmet, green jersey, gold pants, consistent striping. This is what makes me skeptical about the uniform change, I don't think you can replicate this look with the yellow-gold they're moving forward with.  


    Can confirm.

    I really like the current FSU set the only thing that bothered me was when they changed the collar. I dont understand why it changed with the template update.


    Garnet is also great as an alt helmet.

    When they updated their uniform template, they went to Nike's Vapor Untouchable cut, which features a mesh insert at the "peak" of the collar. The mesh cant really be printed on:


    ^^This isn't actually the same jersey cut that FSU currently has (at least i dont think), but it illustrates the mesh better than any pic i could come up with.
