OH MY GOD ADIDAS STOP PLEASE I BEG YOU

Miami's nameplates are actually unreadable

The idea to use the school's wordmark to create a font for player names is not an unreasonable one (or even a new one). The problem, in this case, is that Miami has some really awful wordmarks:

I wonder, in its style guide, if the university delineates which letters are supposed to be upper case and which are supposed to be lower case. The best execution of this idea would have been to put every letter in lower case, like the "miami" wordmark:

Honestly that wordmark isn't perfect but it's not bad. Fits with the logo. It's also a Nike designed wordmark that looks sleek. The nameplate letters are adidas version of that font they look silly. I don't think the Nike font would look great for nameplates but it would look better than adidas, especially considering the process/materials Nike uses.

Kaaya looks like "H2242."

Reminds me of trying to spell boobs on my calculator in the 5th grade

You said trying, which makes me think that you never actually accomplished it?

Is this a temporary artificial surface in Houston? I thought the Texans had grass but this definitely looks fake.

The artificial surface is a million times better than the garbage the Texans play on. The grass is a tray system, basically an NBA floor made of grass. The trays lock together, but the grass is uneven and there are seams. It was a contributing factor in both Jadaveon Clowney and Wes Welker's knee injuries.

For me, BGSU ruined the debut of their amazing alt helmets with ugly uniforms. Don't like shoulder caps and the thin text down the leg looks bad.

Also, I wish VT would've gone with orange pants tomorrow. I like their helmet and think orange-maroon-orange would've been a great look.

Didn't they fix that issue last year as well?

It's been at least 2 years for sure.

NC State - Troy was a pretty good looking game. The primeknit really doesnt stand out on the Red or White uniforms for State, just kind of gives it a nice texture look to it. They're wearing black though next week and the pattern really stands out on those as we all know.

Miami used to have a good NOB font that hinted at their wordmark/number font without being unreadable:

I'd ask why Adidas wouldn't just use that, but it's Adidas, they clearly want their uniforms to be as visually unpleasant as possible.

I'm not sure how that NOB font hints at the number font...but it was better than the current disaster.

It seems like adidas has somehow distorted Miami's numeral font, too. Seems overly bold now.

3 best uniform match-ups yesterday:

Alabama vs Wisconsin

I was at the game, rooting for my losing alma mater, and Alabama looks way classier than we do.

The majority of the perennial football powers in our region do NOT put their primary logos on their helmets:

Ohio State

Michigan

Penn State

Notre Dame

Nebraska

I would contend that Wisconsin should go retro and also take the primary logo off the helmets. Save the Motion W for the sideline wear. Make these the primaries next year when we switch to Under Armour:

Twitter confirmed Ohio State is wearing the same white jerseys they wore to beat Alabama last January.

Great news.

This is Cardinal. Wisconsin should make the move to this color with a switch in apparel company. I would love for this to be the uniform they go to, even a slightly modernized version with a larger W.

Looks like Ohio State has gone back to the classic sleeve stripes full time! Part of me hopes Nike allows there other contracted schools to use the Buckeyes previous sleeve striping... Marshall would be my ideal candidate to takeover that look.
