College Football Uniforms - 2015 Season

Recommended Posts

South Carolina finally has a black uniform option this year.

I wonder why South Carolina is still using the old Under Armour template.

They would cut off the shoulder stripes on the new template.

I guess I never noticed it before, but South Carolina has a weird stripe, almost like an abbreviated UCLA stripe.

The shoulder panel is a little cluttered with all of those elements. Reminds me of this:

It would look better if they put the TV numbers on the sleeves (where they have the primary Gamecock logos), and then they could move the primary logo to the front to replace the generic "CAROLINA" wordmark.

Montana unveiled their unis for this upcoming season. Only gripe I have is the white helmet with the throwbacks. Should be yellow like it used to be.

I thought Nike couldn't make shiny pants anymore? They need to use that same fabric on the pants on the right and make them gold for so many teams.

It's an older style of uniform so that's why they're shiny. The newer templates, Speed Machine and Mach Speed, are designed with matte fabrics so that's why there's no shine to them.

A better modern example would be a jersey from the same region as South Carolina - my very own Panthers. Similar to the Gamecocks, either the stripe or logo needs to go - it's so damn cluttered on the modern jersey fit.

The Nike swoosh ain't helping.

The Panthers could ditch the logo on the sleeves and move the stripes down and they'd look awesome. There's no reason for the same logo to be on the helmet and the sleeves concurrently. That's just redundant.

That's one of my biggest pet peeves for football teams. Clemson has had this look at times, too. Must be a Carolinas thing, lol?

The Panthers uniforms are pretty much perfect and shouldn't be altered (outside of dropping the hip logo, which I fully support). Ideally, they'd have an alternate logo on the sleeves. However, they've had the logo on the sleeves for all 20 seasons, so no reason to take it off now. The only change they really need to make is to wear their black jerseys for seven home games each season. Oh, and destroy the black pants.

As for moving the stripes, their stripes now are perfect. They're the only team which actually executes the shoulder loops properly, with them truncating at the cuffs rather than just ending in the middle of nowhere. The last thing they need to do is go to sleeve stripes and have little 4" wide color slashes on their sleeves.

As aestheticly pleasing as that would be, Carolina has always had a wordmark of some sort, whether it'd be 'CAROLINA' or 'GAMECOCKS' on the front of the jerseys. And the stripes are kinda weird too. We have 11 total stripes (3 on the helmet, and 4 each on the helmets and pants), for the 11 buildings on The Horseshoe, which is the oldest part of USC's campus.

The thing about both Clemson and SC(and the Panthers, but that's for another thread) is that neither team really has a secondary logo to work with. South Carolina could move the shoulder numbers on the sleeve and Clemson could add them, but other than that the logos both teams use are THE logos. What you see is what you get unless you wanna push for the baseball cap logos on the jersey, and that'll just look dumb.

Clemson should put the paws on the shoulders again and bring the numbers back to the sleeves.

Clemson's paw is all over the campus...I'm okay with how they use it on the uniforms.

The Dolphins, Falcons, Seahawks and Patriots pulled it off in the 90s.

Man, Clemson has the worst logo

I think that belongs in the unpopular opinion thread, sir.

On a related note, Mr. Hawkeye, I've never liked Iowa's. Just not sure they could do anything at this point to top it simply because it would look like any other yellow bird logo, ala Southern Miss.

3 of those teams still do it with their current sets

The logo on the helmet and shoulders doesn't bug me much, especially when there's nothing else to put there. I'd rather have the Panthers have their logo there than not have anything at all. Clemson puts their paw everywhere, and their placement on the uniforms seems natural to me.

This is the correct opinion.

I'm assuming you aren't a Panthers fan, don't see too many non-fans give them credit. A few changes like you outlined above and they're perfect. People who wan't to drop the silver are very strange to me, as the Raiders show as well, silver, black, and white are a nice color combo, along with the unique blue to differentiate the schemes. Love them, really hope they never seriously change them.

On the sleeve/shoulder panel topic, there's been a good number of colleges that have been forgoing any sort of tv numbers, and I'm not a fan. It just looks odd to me.

This uniform is so close but yet so far.

- Helmet has a bold dark blue outline

- Logo on helmet has no outline

- Numeral has thin dark blue outline

Unify these elements and the set would be solid. Can never understand why they can't see this. Strange.
