  1. I know the NCAA has prohibited players from exposing their abs, but I'll allow it.
  2. That's the problem with yellow jerseys. They look great in a vacuum, but what pants do you pair them with? Pairing them with blue pants creates an unbalanced look (as does any uniform where a non-white jersey is a lighter color than the pants, in my opinion). Pairing them with yellow pants is too much yellow. And pairing them with white pants looks strange if there isn't much/any white on the rest of the uniform. The blue pants are probably the best option out of those three, but this looks more like an alternate look than something that can be a team's core identity:
  3. Here's McDonald as a Ram and a Falcon- note his trademark lack of a facemask, even in the late 60s:
  4. In my unbiased opinion, the best matchup is Ohio State at Michigan, with both teams in their traditional uniforms:
  5. The black stripes and facemask are gross. That said, I do like red pants for Wisconsin - it just looks much better if they're all red-and-white:
  6. Y.A. Tittle was 37 years old in this famous photo: I used to think that was so old. Now I'm six months away from that.
  7. It looks like the number font USC used before it changed to its current custom font:
  8. SMU-Michigan was a great-looking game:
  9. If the NCAA tried to regulate tattoos, they'd run out of players. There's a difference between individuality in the player wearing the uniform and individuality in the uniform.
  10. Watching that game, I was struck by how much the Bills' offense resembled the current Patriots'. Lots of shotgun, even on standard downs; heavy use of slot receivers on short option routes; matching up TEs and RBs with less mobile defenders in pass routes downfield. The 49ers at the time ran a 3-4 defense, and it was apparent that their LBs couldn't keep up with the extra receivers, but if they took LBs off the field, they couldn't generate a pass rush.
  11. I think the Packers jerseys are much better now than in the early 90s. Back in the early 90s, they had a more drab green and a lighter but more mustardy yellow, and it looked dingy. The current forest green and brighter yellow look much better, in my opinion.
  12. It's tough to imagine this guy being worth two first-round picks, two second-round picks, and a third-round pick.
  13. My favorite example is San Jose State football having jerseys made by 4-PlayersOnly.com, a small shop based in Texas, for the 2001 season.
  14. The list is pretty good, but two things are surprising to me. First, that Packers-Bears isn't #1 - I think that matchup, with the Packers in their home uniform and Bears in blue/white/blue, might be the best possible matchup in the entire league. Second, that Titans-Dolphins isn't worst, considering that the Titans' jerseys were completely unreadable and there was virtually no contrast with all the white and light blue/teal elements.
  15. I understand that silver has a history with the school, but gray isn't silver. And Colorado's usual black/gold/white scheme works so well that it's a shame when they wear gray.
  16. Isn't it really three stripes - the two green ones, and the white one in between?
  17. I think the exact opposite - I love the design, but think it would have been stronger with just one shade of orange instead of two.
  18. LSU does this too, but they're the only FBS team that I know of that does this.
  19. I used to love watching the early-season 49ers games at Candlestick with the dirt infield.
  20. Yeah, but once Nike takes over as MLB's uniform supplier, they would try to change them to the Anthracites.
  21. So, no reason at all? Michigan removed the white from its socks, helmet bumpers, and chinstraps prior to the 2017 season, and it markedly improved the look: Before the change:
  22. Agreed, but why are we talking about the Mets in this thread?
