College Football Uniforms - 2015 Season

Recommended Posts

I'm not a fan of monochrome. I don't like random, unnecessary notches in fonts. I don't like the leotard look. I'm fairly traditional.

But this Iowa Hawkeyes blackout uniform was a huge guilty pleasure. 56481f359da86.image.jpg

10-0 likely has something to do with it. But so does the lack of white.

And really, anything other than straight Steelers knockoffs is welcome. I'd take this jersey with the rest of the current set in a heartbeat.

More photos here.

Beautiful. My biggest beef with the current set is the shrunken front numerals they switched to in 2013 or so. As seen above, the template can accommodate large numbers, so would love to see Iowa switch back.

I think that set would look even better with a set of shoulder stripes, but not ones like their normal uniforms. Something to set it apart, but not go overboard.
Hard to see, but during the game QB CJ Beathard appeared to have a gold stripe on the sleeve. This photo seems to confirm, but there also might be a gray stripe? (Second pic in linked gallery.)

Never saw it on any other player.

EDIT: Nope. Undershirt or pads. FWIW, I think it looks better with a single gold stripe:

I think it's his shoulder pads being exposed.

Now the question becomes: will FSU wear the original 2014 black uniform or the new Mach Speed design like their home and away? Might depend if they actually received their black set from Nike or just used a sample for the launch of the new design.

Not really sure why UnderArmor gets a free pass for this uniform or any of their other special uniforms. UnderArmor has put out just as many hideous looks as Adidas has... but there isn't much hate for them.

Guess with the improvements in tv resolution actually having adequate contrast with the numeral/jersey is a thing of the past? I feel bad for the announcers who must be straining to see who players actual are.

It looks like FSU will finally wear the black alternates.

They're breaking out an alternate uni for Chattanooga?

It's still a horrid mess.. The browns coaches couldn't tell who was who on film due to the orange jerseys having brown numbers, as I can guarantee they have quality cameras for film.. Colored jerseys need white numbers, almost exclusively, as there are very few acceptable alternatives.

To be honest, I'd rather it be against Chattanooga than, say, Florida, Miami, or Clemson.

exactly; they're putting fashion before function here and its something all manufacturers have done. i've always said, there's really not much difference between the big 3. this ND uni is as lame as anything the others have done

The "see-through" logo on the helmet bothers me, too. Why even have a logo if it's basically just a thin keyline? Oklahoma State did this recently with their Crystal Meth helmets or whatever icy-nonsense the marketing department cooked up. You could barely tell the Cowboy logo from the negative space of the helmet.

Agreed. This uniform could be a lot better if it was simplified. Take off the chest and number stripes, remove the sleeve logo and put the shamrock on the shoulders.

...and more unreadable numbers.

For some reason I omitted that Notre Dame will have a blue/green facemask today. The helmet minus the facemask is nice. Jersey too. Pants and mask are not.

I probably would have omitted that too and just acted like it never happened.

KU breaking out the red jersey for the first time this season. Pairing it with blue pants and a blue helmet. I like this look, it's my favorite set that includes the red jersey.

Oregon going all black with the yellow puddles logo on the helmet. Was hoping for either this or green/green/white. Beavers I think going black/white/black but I'm not entirely sure. Good looks for both teams.

Once they swap the stripes for the swoosh, the Michigan all whites top 3 BCS uniform period point blank.

It looks fine with Adidas. The only complaint I have about this year's uniforms from Adidas is that the shade of blue on the home jersey is purple-ish. That, and white pants aren't Michigan.
