College Football Uniforms - 2015 Season

Recommended Posts

Wow. I am honestly surprised to see the positive reaction to these. I'll love them whatever they look like, because it's Vandy, but I am pleased to see other fans like them, too.

The two large helmet releases this week have been bold, and as outlandish as they are, I love them. Both SDSU and Vandy rolled the dice, yet now have two of the more unique helmets in college. Also, Auburn's looks nice, and Cincy does too, but a little more red could work.

i reply to the Vandy helmets,i mean like what they're trying to do but the execution could be a bit better in the form of the color of the star logo on both helmets imo.

I don't like auburn, but this is a pretty good look.. I really like metallic decals (just not chrome generally).. I think metallic logos are nice and look clean if they're modeled after the traditional look.. Texas's are very sharp to IMO

Agreed, that really pops, just like Texas's. Speaking of team's with a classic look, this makes me wonder how Michigan's would look with a metallic maize...worth seeing a concept at least.

New black and gold helmets with awesome chain/anchor stripe for Vandy! https://twitter.com/coach_chancevu/status/629046288705847296

Just came to post those. They look great!

I...love these? Wow, Louisville kicked off the new helmet reveals in a horrifying fashion, but since then we've seen plenty of great designs.

Michigan doesn't need metallic wings. The wings are so large and the maize is so vibrant against the dark blue shell that it doesn't need anything to stick out more, it already sticks out as much as it can right now.

I really don't like the fact there's no gold on the white Vandy helmet.

Not feeling Vandy's helmets. It feel a little too cheesy for me. I like the incorporation of the anchor element, but this feels a little too over the top.

That could be interesting.. I think metallic (not chrome) pretty much always works.. A nice metallic, pearly white for Bama's numbers would be akin to what auburn and Texas have done, without looking like any real change has been made

I'm glad I'm not the only one that doesn't like these. They're too busy for my liking.

The stars are what I don't like about Vandy's look. If the white jerseys have a little gold in them it will look like the stickers were an afterthought when they go stormtrooper. I don't mind the black helmet as much because there's very little white in the home jerseys.

Vanderbilt's look has always seemed stale to me in the past. These helmets along with the new uniforms offer a clean, fresh brand that gives them some life and a degree of uniqueness that looks fantastic. The anchor stripe is a smart move, they can use the black and gold star on the white helmet if necessary

Addressing the lack of gold:

This is something that bothers me as well. In our storm-trooper combo, the only gold will be the number outline, which is very disappointing. I'm fine the lack of white on the black, since there is no white in the black jerseys or pants. I am happy that we have kept the traditional gold helmet's stripes, but the shade of gold doesn't match the gold throughout the rest of the set, which has always been a problem for Vandy.

Via a live chat with their AD, Southern Miss will unveil new uniforms on August 15th:

http://www.hattiesburgamerican.com/story/sports/college/southern-miss/2015/08/05/southern-miss-sports-live-chat-noon/31152681/

No matter what they rollout, this should be the upgrade of the year.

Beware the Outlaws of Las Vegas!!!! or the Kiss of LA!!! Truly, i hope Southern Miss and Russell go back to something simple and clean. Sleeve numbers, no stripes on the jerseys and a black stripe down gold pants should do the trick. That being said, I expect something in the opposite direction of what I think would look good for them.

USM has a wonderful uniform history. It would be perfect if they could go back to something like their throwbacks they wore a few years ago. But sadly, I feel like they'll go with their new bird logo

They've already announced that the wordmark logo will stay on the helmet; the new bird logo will not be on it.

Also, the quote from the AD was that the new uniforms "won't be like Oregon or Maryland. They'll be like Southern Miss." I'm thinking that these will be good; worst case I think that they'll be too generic.

I'd like to see Southern Miss utilize the shiny material, much like Auburn has just now, to make a deep gold more similar to the Favre-era gold ...

Has to be done just right...maybe even by taking a lot of the hue out of it so it doesn't end up looking like vomit (i.e. Georgia Tech 2008), but for some reason I think it would work for them
