Kentucky football is such an embarrassing train wreck. There is literally no spur-of-the-moment, goofball trend they aren't willing to jump on the bandwagon for. Generally, the back end of the bandwagon, after every other second-tier team has exhausted all the possible novelty. BFBS, GFGS, ChromeFCS, MatteFMS... you name it.

Is this for "recruiting"? Let me break it to them... it isn't working.

I know. How can you say that isn't similar? Everyone is saying it isn't even close.

They're similar, for sure. But Iowa State is just using a traditional football uniform template and happens to have the same colors as USC, which is bound to happen even within the Power 5, which still accounts for a lot of schools. Besides, if they took all the striping off their uniforms, people would accuse them of yanking from Minnesota.

Uh no. Nearly all of the isu elements are ripped off from the usc uniform with the exception of the shoulder stripe pattern has a double yellow as opposed to the traditional crescent. Other than iowa and duke's colts knockoffs from 2 seasons ago you can't get much closer to a direct copy than this.

SMU hopping on the BFBS train?

Ugh. Not a fan. Some schools try way way too hard to get recruits.

Um, isn't that kinda the point? Get recruits? Get a better team?

Umm...SMU (and other schools that are constantly in the bottom 40) will have the same recruiting class whether they have black unis or not. No one is choosing SMU over other schools in the state because of uniforms.

There's an easy fix for these. Bring back the yellow lids. That way no one will be confused.

Well, it was. Stoops was recruiting like a mofo in the past. This year his entire class is jumping ship, though.

Well, it's an old debate around here, but I'd argue his ability to recruit like a mofo has next to nothing to do with uniforms.

No one is confused now, people are just arguing for arguings sake. People on the boards think that the Lightning look exactly like the Maple Leafs, as well. People don't know what the word "exactly" means on this site.

I was ready to argue that USC had nothing to do with why the uniforms look like this...the pants stripe matches the very traditional shoulder stripe (OMG...ISU is robbing all LA schools!)

But two things give me pause: the gray facemask and the sleeve numbers. The facemask, I suppose, could be because their uniforms are basic and gray is the trend there. The sleeve numbers, I don't know, but everyone seems to have 'em on the shoulders now.

I'd like to see them make the mask red (or whatever the color is) and maybe add the double-stripe to the helmet (like Wisconsin's). Those tweaks, along with the large wordmark ought to set them apart enough.

That said, this Iowa State uniform is neck-and-neck with Ohio U for my favorite in college football. Points to ISU for not wearing lame trendy alts. Points taken for the trendy "tough" gray mask.

Of course, I've left one huge factor out that changes everything. I THINK (but correct me if I am wrong) that they have darkened their red. Below is an older uniform. If they did that, then I have a bit of an issue with it...I don't like to see schools change their colors for their uniforms. I did not like when they added blue and I don't like them darkening up the red (in principle; the uniform is still sexy). And if I am right and they did darken the red, then 1) points to Ohio U for not changing their colors and 2) it's hard to argue with the accusations of copying USC.

Red and yellow can stand well on their own. The Flames looked great in the 80s. It works for the Chiefs (neck down). They can have the same uniform with red rather than maroon and look good.

We are still talking about just the home red with yellow pants. They don't tend to wear the yellow pants as often with the white jerseys. They have a yellow alternate jersey. USC has a secondary chrome lid, ISU had a matte secondary lid option. Aside from the similarities in the main home uniform, they aren't that similar outside of color scheme! Is only one team allowed to use northwestern stripes? Is only one team allowed to use UCLA stripes? The answer is no, except it seems some feel every school should have a different unique color scheme that no one else uses and jersey designs that are in no way similar to anyone else's in the country.

It's unreasonable to think that all D1 schools are going to have distinct colors. It's perfectly reasonable for schools that share the same palette use uniform designs to make themselves look distinctively separate from the other schools. It's lazy design and bush league to copy the uniforms (or copy with minor tweaks) of successful programs and present them as your own look.

Jebus, people. It's not like USC and Iowa State are even in the same conference, much less the SAME DIVISION.

uspw_6807496.jpg

This is definitely arguing for argument's sake because if you're up in arms about the Cyclones-Trojans, then you should make twice as much noise over Nebraska-Wisconsin. It's a hundred times more blatant if you're trying to find examples of two teams looking alike.

People really invent creative ways to argue on here, sheesh. Nobody seems to have this much grief over a yearly Big Ten West battle so I just don't get the outcry over two teams that look alike who are thousands of miles apart and in different conferences. Better hurry up and drag Oklahoma-Alabama into court! Make sure that you go after those idiots in Green Bay & Edmonton, too! I hear both the Vikings and Lakers wear purple and gold! GOOD GOD ALMIGHTY SOMEBODY STOP THE MADNESS THAT IS THE CARDINALS-ANGELS!

Iowa State is using the same template as these old Duke uniforms from 2013 ..move along , no copying just similar colors in a different template
