College Football Uniforms - 2015 Season

Recommended Posts

I suppose I get the reasoning for the shape of the helmet stripe but it still looks odd. In fact, I'm not sure it's got staying power even though I want it to.

I'm curious to see how the calendar shows up the fan versions of these what with the longer sleeves.

When you see what Nike did with the Florida State retail jerseys, with the sleeve pattern repeated multiple times whether than just once, I'd be scared too. Nike has recently decided to extend or multiply the shoulder designs, which is extremely over the top and pretty tacky.

I can't decide if I love or hate those San Diego State uniforms. The helmets definitely need two alterations though: the stripe would work better either with a uniform width or a much narrower back; and the logo sticker on the back has to go. It's a pointless addition that looks really out of place.

You love them. ;)

If you look on the helmet stripe, you can see why it's not a fixed-width stripe, as you can see the back of the stripe running along with the edge of the calendar. Otherwise you'd have a void between the stripe and the calendar. The stripe is really just covering up the flaws of slapping what is essentially a huge circle on the side of a helmet.

Oregon does the same thing with their logo on the back. That doesn't necessarily make it right, but SDSU aren't the only ones to do it. I'm okay with it as they don't have their logo anywhere else on the helmet. I do think Oregon does it better, as the logo actually matches the finish of the wings.

I guess SDSU didn't go with Nike to create the fan version

I'm disappointed but the bookstore did this with the baseball jerseys too.

Cincinnati has just released their under armour unis. '

For the most part it's a solid set, but those ShinStripes are killin' the overall look.

Do you know where shins are located?

Very creative set. Between the NFL and college ranks, San Diego has impressive football uniforms.

Only change I would have made: stripeless solid black pants to go with the black jerseys and solid white pants to go with the white jerseys.

What's wrong with the fan version?

I'm gonna need to see some gloves poised at an interlocking angle before I judge these uniforms.

The only thing I'm worried about with the bookstore using another vendor to create the fan version is the quality of the product. When I bought the baseball jersey it was on the flimsy side and short. When someone is spending $80 on a baseball jersey or $100 for the football jersey you'd expect it to be a quality product and since they are not going with Nike on it, it could be a crapshoot. I'll probably wait and see what others say about the jersey before I purchase one.

Wouldn't let me post a pic but UNC has a darker outline on its argyle stripe on its helmets now

these are pretty boss. I'd be shocked if they don't roll out a red jersey, some white pants and another helmet.

I posted this helmet a while back when a recruit was posing with it. This is a better angle. Apparently, it will be a part of the rotation this year. It looks like they've just slapped the chrome facemask, helmet stripe, and oversized Pete logo onto their white shell.

I love OK State's embracement of modern design. They and Texas Tech are 2 of the leaders in terms of doing it right, imo. Maybe not 100%, but 90%, and that's good enough.

I've never been a huge fan of the oversized helmet logo thing, but there's something about Pistol Pete that I find endearing.

One of the changes I would have liked to see to the SDSU uniforms would have been white pants.

The other thing I see right off the rip is how the helmet stripe is rounded at the front and back. I think they should have carried that design element to the pants. A rounded stripes at the top and bottom of the pants would have made it a more cohesive look.

As a fellow Aztec fan, I'm looking forward to seeing this uni on the field. These are even nicer than the ones they had around 2003 with the southwestern sleeves. Maybe we'll play better on the field in these?

SDSU football has traditionally gone red/black/black at home, and don't want to change that.

I see that now, but it still looks bad. Such a weird shape.

I hate it when Oregon does it too. I do agree that they do it better (ignoring the decision to use chrome, and the worse decision to use it on a yellow helmet), since it at least matches the rest of the look. San Diego State's sticker just sticks out so much.
