College Football Uniforms - 2015 Season

Recommended Posts

I'll take the so far unpopular opinion on TCU. We haven't yet seen the purple but I think the frogskin is tastefully done. I find the jersey sublimation a nice subtle detail, however, the helmet pattern is definitely overexposed in comparison. This isn't to say it couldn't be done better. I would add black back to the palette and replace the gray set with black.

Look at this picture: The jersey detail is pretty subtle and minimal. It's the helmet (and the gray colors used) that are the problem.

So just looking on the mothership and seeing all the updates for Colorado State, did they have a lowkey rebrand that none of us heard about?

I actually kind of like the gray jersey (helmet is bad and purple jerseys with frogskin is also bad) and at least the pattern on the pants isn't noticeable.

NCSU will be wearing Red/White/Red vs ODU... with black facemasks. They closed the season 3-0 featuring the red helmets and black facemasks, but what looks better IYO's? White or Black?

With the black outline on the logo and stripe, the black facemask looks better. Overall, I think it would look best if black was eliminated entirely.

I don't have anything to add other than, upon a quick glance, I though you typed "purple jerseys with foreskin." Don't give Adidas any ideas.

I'm on my phone, so I don't know how to post it. But Ohio State is going with the playoff jersey as the regular home uniforms for this season. The story is on the site collegespun.com

Late to the party, but Michigan has definitely darkened the shade of maize. Here's the best evidence... Last year's jersey with this year's pants:

Personally, I'm a fan of the new/darker shade. Not only does it look better with the darker blue (the richer/orange shade makes the color scheme more complimentary as opposed to analogous), but it's the color I remember the Wolverines wearing when I was a kid. Over the course of the Carr years, the maize became lighter and brighter, and then it made a huge jump to the neon side with the move to Adidas.

I was wondering the same thing. Odd to see a standard facemask on a modern shell.

As was pointed out yesterday, there is no frogskin pattern on these pants. None of the white parts of the jersey elements have frogskin.

The N and the C in that logo have long bothered me. I get what they are trying to do but it isn't working for me. Seems there could be a more refined version.

Five-minute photoshop. Just invert some of the colors.

This isn't perfect, but there needs to be more contrast between the White "S" and the White "NC." There's not enough distinction.

Just making the outline around the N and C black makes a huge difference:

The frog skin doesn't look as prominent as it did in the promo shots on the jersey. Hopefully the purple follows the same.

Boise State reportedly wearing new uniform combo no one has seen before. Not very sure what it could be, seeing as we've worn black and grey already.
