I'm positive that the Arizona State players/fans/alum throw up the "shocker" because it is supposed to be a pitchfork....for the Sun Devils

Utah's new helmet (along with other "satin" finishes) is actually just a matte metallic that Riddell does indeed call "anodized".. It's not a true satin, as anyone who has painted a house knows that satin may have a miniscule touch of "gloss", but no metallic properties like these helmets have.. I know hydroskin graphics are capable of a lot, but this is actually a standard finish offered by Riddell, so some teams may be paying significantly more for essentially the same finish if they're using hydroskin

Riddell may offer something similar but that's not the same as Utah and Oregon have done. in fact, the helmet you're seeing in the Utah promo pictures is a Schutt helmet, and the face mask is painted and finished the same way as the shell. the gloss scale is not as wide for helmets as it is for house paint which includes eggshell, semi-gloss, and about 7 or 8 different finishes. HGI may actually use a variety of finishes in a similar way but it's really no more than just a name rather than an official scale, so even if they use 3 different satin finishes, they still call it satin. which is why it's hard to tell sometimes exactly what they've done in the process, but i'm fairly sure that any Hydroskin finish is a paint base with some sort of clear coat over top.

The shoulder logos need to be bigger. You can barely make them out on these.

The brand name on the helmet doesn't necessarily tell you who put the finish on it.. We send our entire team set of helmets (Riddell, Schutt, Xenith, Rawlings) to Riddell for reconditioning. Our previous helmets were finished with the matte metallic silver (anodized silver) before last season.

New maroon pants for Mississippi State:

Interesting...too bad they had to slap the oversized logo on the side. They need to go back to this:

Or if they go back to the DWS 100 unis, they should put that double stripe on here.

That picture looks like a practice jersey?

Yes. The focus here is on the pants.

Thanks. Didn't realize they'd put game pants with their practice jerseys and helmets. That might be fairly common, I honestly don't know. Just threw me off since the rest of the uniform is obviously a practice set.

While its not completely done, it appears there will be a new number font for the yard line markers at Kyle Field. they appear to be the same font as the uniform numbers.

Yeah this has been a bit confusing since they usually don't wear game pants in practice, but they busted these out in the scrimmage last night. PrimeKnit pattern is present, so they're brand new; I expect them to show up in some games. Here's my article on them:

It's probably so the players can see how they fit compared to last year's uniforms.

That's one of the biggest downgrades of all time. Those unis are ugly.

The previous set was damn near perfect.

I actually like the new set...especially the cream pants.

But they've had cream/beige/tan pants for years. And it's a lighter shade in 2015, which is also a downgrade.

Not just players/fans/alum, either! ;)

Awesome throwbacks. And that duo of block letters seems unique to me. Were there any other teams using 2 block letters for their logo?

Nicely done throwbacks. They actually look pretty accurate, except for maybe the socks since the white stripes are spaced too far apart and it's missing the bottom 2 black stripes.

NIU with the throwbacks. Digging the socks:

They should base their current set from these. Put NIU on the sleeves, the husky head and NIU on the helmet. Use these pants and socks and call it a day.

Does NIU order out of the Adidas team catalog, or does Adidas use M/L/XL/2XL for every program?

And what's the background on the interlocking NI logo...is that baseball-only?
