College Football Uniforms - 2015 Season

Recommended Posts

Maryland's set actually looks good (aside from the helmet). It only took them four years to figure out how to integrate the Maryland state flag into their uniforms without making them hideous.

Louisville... I have no words. It seems like UofL is trying to become to Adidas what Oregon is to Nike. Stick to the growling bird and the gothic "L", black and red, and stop trying to make your uniforms "edgy". Please. Just stop.

The kids wearing this probably think some 20 year old billionaire said it first.

I like Maryland's helmets, I loved the Michigan white and Utah's all-red, and I really like the fact that Oregon done away with the wings on the helmet and brought back the "O", finally, I believe the Missouri set is perfect for them. But I do agree with the rest being ugly.

You can include the socks adidas are using this year. The shockweb socks are horrible. Miami wore them on Saturday. The pattern is on the front instead of the back it looks like someone sprayed the socks with orange spray.

Maryland's helmets are too much. They remind me of overly detailed airbrushed motorcycle helmets.

I thought their first flag helmets were good as an alternate, but if I was designing the Maryland uniforms I'd drop the flag pattern into a sleeve insert or a shoulder stripe insert. Enough to be recognizable, but not overwhelming. Then I'd put this logo on a white helmet

with their old black-white-red-white-black striping, which would be matched on the pants. You still get the flag imagery, but it's not beaten over your head.

OU looked good as usual (unless they wear those awful black uniforms). Idaho not so much.

I'm guessing I'm the minority here by saying I really like what Maryland has stuck with lately? The handpainted helmets are really nice and work well, I think.

As for the others, Missouri looked good, as did Utah, and I liked Oregon's base design. The helmets are a bit odd with the grey wings out from the facemask. I don't like that because it looks completely different depending on which helmet was being worn. It works perfectly with the Revo Speed, but the others look really odd.

I love Maryland's helmets too. It's different and it's not the previous Maryland Pride helmet that looked like a Rollerball reject. The Oregon helmet was okay but I prefer they either go with the wings or the Big O, not the short wings. Like you said, depending on the helmet it could look like a rectangle block or something that doesn't equate to ducks.

Gotta disagree on Utah. They looked fantastic and their game with Michigan was one if the best looking matchups of the weekend, in my opinion.

Utah would've looked decent in white pants. Or even black pants. I dislike all monochrome uniforms as a basic rule, but red, orange, or yellow monos are by far the worst.

I just hope Ohio State changed the color of the TV numbers on their classic stripe home jerseys from black to white.

And I was hoping they would change the TV numbers on the road to black instead. The black TV numbers are such a cool little detail.

The ugliest week 1 uniforms came out of Division 2 IMHO. Do yourselves a favor (or disservice) and check out what Lincoln University (Pennsylvania) wore in their season opener against Cheyney University. You've been warned!

Black, blue, orange, and white. Pretty rough.

One of the number one things I hate: the Nike fang pants have become as generic/standard as a triple-stripe. They're just not a good look for most teams though.

I didn't think Arizona State looked too bad. Granted the helmet was a downer, but everything else looked pretty sharp to me.

The ASU Desert Ice set wasn't terrible, but last year's Desert Fuel set was head and shoulders above what they wore this year. There's just something kinda blah about what they wore on Saturday. I think it's going to be a representation of their entire set this season. Not terrible, but definitely not as good as their last Nike set.
