    Clemson was playing Aretha Franklin's "Respect" in the locker room after the game.

    Dabo will run with that bit as an underdog for faux motivation for a team as talented as nearly every team in all of "amateur" football. He's a troll.

    Crap like that makes me want Clemson to get drilled like Georgia did in the SEC Championship. Only because they won't get whipped like Oklahoma did.

    Sorry, my post wasn’t very clear. I was talking about how it looks like there isn’t an MLS patch. I’m sure the sleeve sponsors will be done on a club by club basis as they announce their new partnerships.

    I meant for the MLS patch. If that's a prototype I can understand not having a league patch.

    I don't watch college football so I don't know how things are usually called vs how they're called in the NFL, but that roughing the kicker really seemed suspect to me.  No matter how many times they showed it, I didn't see where he roughed him.  If anything, the kicker hit him and there was nothing he could have done about it - it was just incidental.


    I think the catch/fumble was correctly reversed.  I don't know what the targeting rule is so can't comment on that one.

    The fact the punter jumped up instead of out is why they called it roughing. Punters are taught to leave the kicking leg out, but with that heavy a rush just get up instead of leaving yourself vulnerable to getting run over.

    RBNY had their secondary kit leak. A bit disappointing. I was hoping for more of a classic Metrostars vibe (vertical stripes) when we heard about the leaked colors. This harkens back to the Metrostars in colors only. The leak also shows us what the three stripes over the sleeve will look like, which sound like they’ll be rolled out to numerous clubs. Interesting to see (at least from this angle) there’s no MLS patch on the sleeve. We’ve heard how the league will permit sleeve sponsors but I figured they’d simply drop one of the patches. I wonder if this means the jerseys won’t carry the patches as standard anymore. This could be good for tournaments like US Open Cup and Champions League. It was a bit weird when clubs wore the CL patch stacked above the MLS patch. Most other teams around the world simply drop their league patch in exchange for the tournament patch.





    It probably just hasn't been screened on yet. I believe the advertising patch goes on the left sleeve.


    Also, thanks adidas for saving me money when Columbus looks exactly like this.

    @dont care  Ideally I agree wouldn't want them to leave the pewter helmet but it is unique to them. But as we all know the NFL's one helmet rule has effectively eliminated Bruce so moving to a white lid would open things back up to throwbacks .I'd  Pewter, red & creamsicle tattered stripes and make the logo normal sized.

    @Ice_Cap your concept is pretty on point with what i'm thinking just switch out the black for pewter or at least keep it on the uniform with the big stripes and facemask. 

    If you go with a white helmet I think orange is the better option as the primary uniform color. Red jerseys with white numbers and orange or black trim wouldn't look as good as orange with red trim on the white numbers.

    Those sleeves are miles better, maybe if they outlined the tv numbers in silver it would be fine 

    I'd prefer they go with the 1970-2007 design which had the large white shoulder numbers. Silver outline wouldn't help those shoulder numbers.

    This is exactly what I think, too. The pattern for redesigns in the current NFL seems to be like a pendulum swinging. If the uniform getting a make-over was fairly traditional/plain, the redesign goes more to the modern (this happened in Tampa, somewhat in Tennessee, and with the initial Cleveland and Jacksonville redesigns) but if the uniform getting reworked was an already derided modern set, the redo will be in the other direction (Minnesota, arguably in Detroit, and with the second go around in Miami and Jacksonville). My guess is that with the rightful hate this current mess has gotten, along with Cleveland's self-image as a tough, no nonsense, blue-collar town, the new uniform will get a lot of the same complaints on this board that the Jaguars have been getting. 


    I think it will be fairly plain (they will say "clean"... that's the current buzzword for plain), single layer numbers, definitely a custom font but one based off a block. Stripe-less jerseys and pants, especially plain white pants, would not surprise me .  One thing I would most definitely predict is that there will be no rubber stamp return of any previous look. No return to the 70's, 80's 90's, no "just make the color rush the new uniform", no quick and easy return.  That just isn't how these things are done these days.  That would be seen as a missed marketing opportunity.   And I guess logically, it would be.

    If they listen to the fans, there should be sleeve stripes. Something along the lines of Florida's or Ohio State's jerseys.

    Oregon going chrome/dark green/dark green for the Rose Bowl:

    These are also new chrome helmets, different from the ones worn earlier this season against UW and for the last few seasons. Instead of silver wings, the wings on these are Nightmare green, as is the facemask. The whole combo is essentially a fauxback to the 2012 Rose Bowl combo:



    Leading up to this reveal, there was a lot of noise about them possibly going with ‘94 throwbacks, and I personally was thinking they might just go yellow/green/yellow, so I’m pretty surprised to see this. I’m a bit disappointed, as they’ve already worn the full Nightmare green set twice, but I do like the addition of the new chrome helmets, and the whole combo should look pretty sharp.

    If this were a true night game they would look good. Since most of the game is in daylight it will look horrible. Monochrome most likely for both teams but Wisconsin should wear red pants.

    The fiesta bowl trophy is so ugly it's beautiful. And one of these teams should wear purple on the 12th. They won't, but they should. 

    Only way that would've happened is if Nike unveiled something for everyone other than Ohio State. I just wonder how awful LSU's end zone is going to look.

    How the hell is that a personal foul for roughing the punter?  The guy slowed up, and the punter's momentum took him into him.  The announcers saying that it's a "clear personal foul" seems ridiculous to me.  If I cared about Ohio State, I'd be pretty jacked right now.

    And to add to it, the punter pulled on his helmet. That's more dangerous than him running into the kicker.  Worst call was targeting. Not because it was wrong, but because if he was a RB, they don't call it. There are different rules for QBs.

    IIRC D/G-League always had one template for every team. Same with WNBA except first years with Champion when they had three templates.


    Least favorite:

    - One Helmet Rule (with no custom facemask rule)

    - NBA uniform naming system

    - Trend of Roundel logos



    - Trend of retro uniforms

    - new socks system in NBA (I mean they didn't white or black anymore, but fit to uniform color)

    The fact whole leagues are stuck with one template annoys me to no end. Once adidas took over the WNBA, they started that move to one template. At least with G League teams they have different number fonts and wordmarks.

    Option 2: Remove the logo from the Jersey, and change the Shoulder Stripe to a Sleeve Stripe, keeping the Numbers in the shoulders, and allowing them to grow in size since they are oddly small on Nike’s VU Template. Keep the Pointed aspect to be unique and traditional with simple striping.

    This would work, just copy the insert that the Chargers use.

    Do the Panthers even really need TV numbers anymore? They've shrunk so much over time that they're definitely not functional in any manner anyway. If you really think about it, the entire concept of TV numbers almost feels obsolete now regardless.

    To be fair, that's probably the best option if they're going to stay that small. I believe the NFL rule that primary uniforms are required to have them is still in effect though.

    You have looked at Nebraska as of late, have you?

    Nebraska is changing over from one system to a new one. Miami wasn't. Nebraska's biggest issue currently is not having a quarterback that can run what Scott Frost wants to do as an offense. Miami's issues are the same ones that got it in trouble in the past. Too many people involved with program decisions that don't know what they are doing.

    The end zones Have been like that the last few seasons. It is bush league in my opinion. 

    It's better than the Idaho Potatoes Bowl which is just the Boise State field and a couple logos slapped down. Sometimes they haven't even bothered to do that. Boise's swapped out the field two times since then but still stitched the logos in instead of allowing themselves the ability to swap out the paint. As for the Quicklane Bowl, this beats when it was the Motor City Bowl and the car companies were all placed in the end zone instead of a school name. They also add conference logos as well. And with the possibility that te Lions could host games the following Sunday, just having the team's name, even if only one color, is a  step up from other bowls.

    I've been to all 14 new mexico bowls. It is fairly low budget compared to others. They at least color the "NEW MEXICO" from grey to yellow so it matches official state flag colors. When field was grass, they usually did school color checkered end zones. 

    The Independence Bowl does the same thing, somewhat, though in actuality those end zones look like that year round instead of just a repaint for the game. the only addition is the bowl logos. Watching the Division II Championship in McKinney, they played at a high school stadium and the normal championship field logos couldn't be placed on the field because the McKinney ISD logo and the wordmarks in the end zone are stitched in. Only the NCAA bubble was able to be laid out. For 2020 and 2021, the Division III championship will be at Tom Benson Hall of Fame stadium in Canton and I'm guessing it will be the same setup there unless someone pays to swap out the turf. That probably won't happen though. I know the Hall of Fame was happy to rename the stadium in honor of Benson, but I don't know why they couldn't have done the usual step of adding a wordmark on the field similar to how it's done at the Alamodome or Gillette Stadium. 

    McKinney's three high schools are now playing football in the district's new $69.9 million football stadium.

    I'll just put this out there but when I went to school at Alabama I knew maybe 30 or 40 people from Nashville and the metro area and that was much longer ago in time than I'd care to admit.  Tennessee's had the University of Alabama vanity license plate for at least twenty years now.  I'm also sure that as Nashville's expanded more UA grads moved there with it being one of the largest cities in the region so there being a lot of Alabama fans in Nashville isn't that surprising (bandwagon jumpers aside.)  Also doesn't help that UT's been a dumpster fire for the better part of the last decade and Vandy's only good every now and then.  There's a decent amount of Ole Miss fans in Memphis though with Oxford being about an hour or so away.

    It's surprising how many of the larger colleges have license plate deals in Texas. All of the Big XII and SEC West and most of the SEC East are available here.
