  1. On a positive note, now the crew of the International Space Station can watch Ducks games through the porthole and still be able to identify the players. That's some #Smart #BrandBuilding if you ask me *fire emoji*
  2. ^^ Haha no they arent im just noticing this. You can see the pocket for the thigh pad right under the "a" of the adidas logo. What an absolute buffoon.
  3. it looks to me that the shoulder numbers are supposed to be parallel to the wings
  4. in what capacity do they look stupid? the difference in color isnt distracting, as it is so close to the ground, and doesn't throw off a uniforms color balance. I don't see any of the following looks being improved by white or team colored cleats.
  5. Agreed. The dual shoulder stripes was a unique look in the P5 the moment they unveiled it, and they have owned it ever since.
  6. There are no backs to be had, just a simple misunderstanding is all. On an unrelated note, i hope that A.) the new Techfit pattern doesn't show up very much on Nebraska's red, and B.) if it does, they just stick with the version that they used last season, because for some reason the tire treads don't show up much in natural lighting with NU's color of red (also kind of hoping that they bring back the throuback alts from last year, cause i really liked how they looked on the field)
  7. Kou was referring to Wyoming* (who went with the "CFL" template as opposed to the newest techfit) and expressing his relief that they did not use the same jersey cut as ASU (the pis he commented on) *
  8. Is it safe to say Under Armour has usurped Adidas' 2nd place spot as far as overall quality of uniform design goes? Adidas seems to have a few good looks in traditional teams (Miami, Nebraska, now ASU), but thats not really a result of their design team so much as taking what the respective shools already brought to the table and putting it together. I think the biggest differentiator for Nike right now is that they'll take a G5 school such as Wyoming or SDSU (two of the better reworks of recent memory) and build a solid look thats unique to the one team wearing it. Under Armour has created solid looks for their P5 programs, and has branched out fairly effectively into G5, providing unique looks to at least a few programs (CSU, USF) I can't off the top of my head think of a single mid-size program that Adidas as so much as made a custom striping pattern for, much less made a whole new look for. All of Adidas' G5 schools seem to be slave to their template.
  9. This may be a hot take, but the ACC looks pretty damn good top to bottom
  10. Either this is being over-hyped by the player for hype's sake ..or Oregon is putting LED's in their helmets. at this point i wouldnt be surprised by either
  11. i'll tell ya ECU's new threads look awful but the fact that the new techfit template inst nearly as gaudy as the old one in natural lighting has got me excited!
  12. If not for the Oar-Stripeᵀᴹ, this would actually be an improvement over their previous road set. unfortunately, this is the SINGLE combination where this is the case
  13. If these are real, then count me as a YUUGE fan. It's cool to see the Cavs finally settle into a look unique to them.
  14. I tried mocking that up, and it looks good-not-great. I think if they want to go Fiesta they should go 100%.
  15. https://www.thedailygopher.com/2018/2/2/16966036/super-bowl-radio-row-pj-fleck-minnesota-football-uniforms P.J. Fleck said in a recent Facebook Live interview that Minnesota will be getting new uniforms in "a few weeks", and that “just like anything we do, they’re probably going to upset some people.” #ChromeAlert
  16. well this is a good sign for those (me) who want the jazz to adopt this set full time. "Jazz break arena store sales record with debut of new uniforms against Warriors" https://www.ksl.com/?sid=46249937&nid=304
  17. Wait then how are there still 3 logos showing? Arent the logos on the front top of the sock?
  18. You literally quoted the answer to this. Nike does make the socks thicker in areas one is likely to get blisters from friction with their shoes. Some players want even more thickness, so they wear multiple pairs of socks. I'd be willing to bet that Nike's sales data tell them that this is close to the ideal padding that most people are looking for in performance socks. But keep in mind that NBA players aren't "most people." Maybe they should make "PE" socks for the nba with extra padding or something. (The areas with the brighter white are padded) And speaking from personal experience, Nike Basketball socks are extremely cushy, and I've never gotten blisters after wearing just one pair for a couple games, something that has happened to me in Adidas and Under Armour basketball socks.
  19. They said they'd be releasing it in spring, but i think their hockey team just messed up by posting pics of their new uniforms. Looks like both a lighter gold and a less saturated navy. Not sure how i feel about the number font either.
  20. I'd really like to see the old twister helmet logo come back in some capacity at least. (Sorry for potato quality)
  21. They're not mascots so much as playable characters in the game. I don't even think those heroes (playable characters) are associated in the team in any sort of "mascot" capacity, i think it's to show off the in-game "uniform" for the teams, but i may be wrong. Winston is a "tank" hero with a lot of health and a shield. He has an electricity gun, which resulted in the nickname, "Mike Pence".
