    Once again those are photoshops not actual jerseys, just using the template that’s already there. As stated the template could be and probably will be altered to fit UCLA stripes.

    Yup, that's the point I was making.

    Do we know how bad they look on that template for certain? Or are we just making that assumption based on the rough mock-up someone created one page back? I'm guessing they'll make a somewhat drastic modification to the template like they did to the Vapor-Untouchable

    To be fair, they could drop the yoke farther down for those teams or simply keep them in the current uniform cut. These are from my NCFA team this season.

    Even after getting Napoli to the Champions League Round of 16, Ancelotti was sacked last night.

     

    Arsenal bound?

    I'd hope not. Does he really want to deal with English football after how he got treated at Chelsea? He may be better off sitting out a while. He's got enough wasta in world football to pick his next job at his leisure.

    These look like a super bush league high school now.  The Orange mask at least gave it some sort of a custom, major league finish.

     

    My guess is they didn't have enough made and maybe they are ordering more.  Instead of mixing & matching for the player helmets they had now, maybe they pulled the Black that they acquired from the AAF and are just using them temporarily.  Hopefully the Orange mask returns but that custom paint can take a minute.

    Major League Football got all of the AAF gear. Black facemasks are pretty easy to get shipped immediately in place of a custom color mask.

    Definite downgrade.  I wonder if this is for practice only.  The Orange mask at least made this much more of a unique helmet and minimized how horrific that stripe decal is.

    If they were having an issue with the coloring clashes I can see why they'd go with black. What they really should have changed was the side panels.

    Also, did the white jerseys also have black TV numbers? I've never seen that.

    During 1968, I've seen a mixture of jerseys for the team. Unfortunately almost all of white jerseys I've seen are in black and white and from distance so it's hard to tell. The 1969 Ohio State-Michigan game had some players with black numbers on the sleeves and some on the shoulders so it's possible they were worn the year prior.

    1970 appears to be when they swapped over to white numbers on the shoulders.

    Yeah, I think it works for Oregon since the ‘O’ logo is simple and round and the sleeves and shoulders are mostly blank, but I think it would make the jerseys pretty cluttered for teams like Ohio State with a more complex logo and decorations (stripes and TV numbers) on the sleeves and shoulders.

    Did a quick mockup. Added the Nike on the left chest as well for comparison.

    I wouldn’t be surprised one bit if the Nike logo at the base of the collar ends up just being an Oregon thing. When teams like Oregon and Ohio State were testing the new template, the swoosh was in the normal position on the left chest, so I could see that still being the norm with most teams still opting to have their logo at the base of the collar.

    I hope that's the case. If they place the swoosh at the neck I'd rather they leave the left chest blank.

    Definitely cannot stand Ohio State as a team, but their throwback uniforms are suburb.  Have to be Top 10 in all of college football.  I've always been a sucker for that style of sleeve striping on any team.

    Only detail I would change is, I hope the red jersey has white tv numbers this time.

    I would love the Eddie George era big Champion style numbers on those.

    Rumor is they'll move to the template worn by Oregon next year as well. I'm not a fan of the Nike logo at the neck but I think it could give a few teams a better way to show off shoulder stripes, like Mississippi and LSU.

    It's odd not seeing Alabama in the New Year's Six. Refreshing, but still odd. If they lose the Citrus Bowl, does that still make Michigan's season a complete disappointment? I know they lost to OSU again and finished with three losses, but it's still Nick Saban and Alabama... Tua or not.

    Only if they lose as badly as they did to Florida last year.

    Similar with Austin’s comment, is that a claim people here are making? If they win, who cares who did and didn’t believe in them? A Super Bowl win in itself is validation, not someone admitting they were wrong.

    I just want a Super Bowl where I'm not looking forward to the commercials.

    I'm still mad about the A-State game I attended where there was a TD, commercial, kickoff, commercial, three-and-out, commercial. Football needs to die.

    I think they need more 30 second cut scenes rather than 4 minutes of commercial time. But unfortunately, that'll just mean 30 second cut scene, kickoff, 4 minutes of commercial time, 3 and out, 4 minutes of commercials instead of allowing fans 30 seconds to run to the fridge before the first offensive play, 3 and out, punt and then right to the next offensive play.

    Anyone else feel like they should suck it up and replace the kickoff?  It's become the least relevant play in football IMO.

    It sped things up in the AAF, but I know most fans want to keep it because there's that one time a year that a player will go 100 yards for a TD.
