College Football Uniforms - 2015 Season

Is there a more boring helmet than Wake's? I think it's just that font.

I definitely can't think of one. That thing is a cure for insomnia.

They're aptly named "wake" because it's about as exciting as a funeral.

Wonder why they couldn't use a stylized version of the academic shield logo instead of the boring WF?

If done right, it could look pretty cool.

As we're done seeing the new uniforms of the Colorado, Michigan State, North Carolina, Army and TCU, we're waiting on the Tennessee unveiling uniforms as they're switching to Nike from crappy Adidas. Same thing for the Miami and Arizona State as they switch from Nike to Adidas. Any idea when the date will be announced for the showings?

I think UT's is July 1st. A guy connected to the athletic dept posts on volnation as DeerPark12 and mentioned the numbers will be different than what we have now or have had in the past. He compared them to baylor and arkansas. There's a thread dedicated to uniforms.

Seeing some reactions of the Vol fans on that board almost makes me wish the general public hates the new ones. They like some of the garbage Miami (OH) and Louisville uniforms, so they don't need to be happy at all.

My only complaint with almost all of these is the pants no pant stripes but with Nikes fill in the template design that is probably good!

I agree with Brandon this is by far the best year for Nike I have seen please get my Vols right no sleeve caps though!

I hope they keep the pants stripes on the Vols uniform, heck I wish Nike would incorporate pant stripes on 7 out of 10 uniforms.

That really depends on whether or not Nike would give them proper pants stripes or those stupid truncated wraparound stripes.

I'd like to see Tennessee with a thicker pants stripe, similar to Iowa's, and continue that thicker stripe to the helmet and possibly sleeves. I don't think there are many teams in the power-5 that have an identity revolving around a singular, thick stripe.

However, I am assuming the Volunteers' new look is going to revolver around the checker pattern - just going on the recent trends weave seen with Michigan State, North Carolina, Wake Forest, and Florida State. I wouldn't mind if the pattern was sublimated within the larger pants and helmet stripe.

Unfortunately, I think we are due for a let down.

It could get interesting with Tennessee's famous checkers and how they are used in Nike's visual program. Rival Kentucky uses them, as well.

I'd rather just one of those teams use checkers.

Tennessee, much like UNC, has the kind of fantastic color that looks best with a simple uniform design.

Has there been anything official about new uniforms for Boise State? I have seen the new helmets and those pictures that coach posted but is there anything else?

Kentucky uses them to honor Secretariat (the greatest horse in racing history), but Tennessee really owns the look and I don't see an issue using that throughout their uniform as well. If both schools had similar colors, then I could see an issue, but blue and orange are vastly different unlike what Adidas did to Texas A&M and Mississippi State when they released similar designs in the same year.

Tennessee would look great with the current Dolphin's template.

Use the checkerboard pattern on the stripe a la the Seahawks:

Elon University (FCS - CAA) has new uniforms - they are finally ditching the old Missouri template. Looks pretty good.

With all the teams that look like the Colts, this is boring to me.

I wish more major conference teams would wear jerseys with these stripes as they are fantastic.

Just some random spring game shots of random uniforms. Really like the maroon/orange/maroon for VT:

Boise's "B" Logo looks great on that helmet. Also, the Purdue white helmet looks fantastic as well.

That white helmet is seriously a trainwreck. Looks even worse on the field - the stripes look like barcodes from a distance. There's so much brand equity in having the "bronco head" logo on the helmet that replacing it with the academic "B" logo is a mistake, too.

Just seems to me like Virginia Tech needs a maroon outline on those numbers (on the orange jerseys). Having the plain white is kinda bare.
