With the college football season coming to a close, fans start to look back on the season as a whole and talk about what needs to be improved. Of course, this generally applies to on-field performance, but the same principle can be applied to uniforms. Some teams already have theirs perfected. Some have a good base and just need to build off of it. Others need a complete rebrand. None of the three FBS teams in Mississippi have reached that stage of perfection yet, but none are at stage zero, either. Mississippi State’s 2016 pants and road jerseys are as close to perfection as possible, but they need to update the home jerseys to be consistent. Ole Miss has a pretty classic look, but color inconsistencies, some of which can’t be fixed without deviating from tradition, are prominent. Southern Miss is farthest from a great look, but they have a solid foundation and some great throwbacks that they should build off of. ------------------------------------ 1. Mississippi State The last few seasons, Mississippi State’s football uniform changes have followed a pattern of two steps forward, one step back. This past season, they added , a road jersey with no black outlines, and a silver helmet that fit well with rest of set. However, they kept the maroon jersey with black outlines, got rid of the matte maroon helmet, and wore a head-scratching black jersey with a templated Adidas design- Louisville wore the exact same one. What needs changing in 2017: I. Make the maroon jerseys match the white jerseys. Remove the black outlines on the numbers and put white-gray-white stripes on the sleeves, matching those on the maroon pants. Granted, I would have gone with gray-white-gray, but it looks like they’ve settled on w-g-w, presumably to retain two white stripes on the sleeve. II. Bring back matte maroon helmets. The biggest disappointment of 2016 was the lack of matte maroon helmets. They were replaced by the silver helmets, which admittedly worked in their own right. However, the matte maroons were the Bulldogs’ best helmets. I’d like to keep both the matte maroon and silver helmets, but if one has to go, let it be silver. III. Make the gray pants match the white and maroon pants. By far the most minor change needed, the gray pants just need to be updated to match the format of the other two. Remove the M-State logo from on top of the stripe on the left side and put one on the front left. IV. Add gray alternates instead of black. State has a silver helmet and gray pants. A gray jersey, with stripes matching the gray pants, only makes sense. It would look so much better than the string of black alternates do. IF they were to go back to a black jersey though, it should match the other jerseys, with white-maroon-white or silver-maroon-silver stripes. More like the 2015 version than 2016.

http://www.southernmisslogo.com/#future Southern Miss is one step closer to the end of their logo drama that has surrounded them over the past few years. The following two options have been unveiled as possible new logos. Unfortunately, similarities to Louisiana Monroe's logo have already been pointed out. This was USM's previous logo that Iowa prevented from being trademarked-
