College Football Uniforms - 2016 Season

Recommended Posts

I was just about to post that. What #content from the worldwide leader.

 

(Although I wouldn't hate to see the Texas horn helmet in white. That could be a neat little one off.)

ESPN just posted this horrible "article" about what would happen if Oregon was in charge of some CFB uniforms:

Did Paul Lucas come up with those designs? The person who threw those together didn't apply any thought into them at all. At least Oregon can pretend that they did.

Can't wait until next Throwback Thursday when we get an earful of LeBron's decision and the Kobe sex scandal.

I think the OJ Bronco chase will be the week after, followed by a retrospective on John Rocker.

Exactly. Plus, Oregon didn't go for a realistic duck look. They just picked colors that matched the mascot. It would be like Ohio State wearing a plain dark brown helmet, light brown facemask, striped jersey and red pants. Not sure why they put the weird eyes on there and everything.

 

The concept is fine, but the execution is completely wrong.

I think I just threw up a little . . . in my mouth. Just posting concepts from fans and adding no actual commentary on the designs is just crap. Michigan looked like it merged with Georgia Tech on a couple of designs.

Those were terrible....except for the horns and bevo pattern for Texas, I really like that and I hate that I did.

The issue is that ESPN had a subpar graphic designer rush through this in 24 hours instead of making sure each detail made sense or was accurate. Same thing happens with so many of posts in the concept forum, and people tell the original poster to go back and take their time. Not to mention it's practically using the TeamBuilder template with a helmet that Riddell doesn't even sell anymore.

This is really ridiculous. Not only are the uniforms terrible, but why would you call it Oregon-izing? Since when does making crazy terrible uniform designs relate to Oregon? Oregon has quite a few, no question, but it seems that anytime any person on these sport sites that aren't uniform exclusive makes out-of-the-box designs, they attach "Oregon" to it. What Oregon is wearing this week is probably the craziest they ever worn (outside of the pink unis). If they really want to compare it something, they should compare it to Mr. Design Junkie. I really don't see any resemblance to Oregon here, just crazy terrible designs with "Let's get Oregon-ized" as the title.

Thank you so much for saying this. As an Oregon fan, it's extremely irritating when people attach Oregon to s*** like this.

While I'm not the biggest fan of this weekend's uniform, Oregon at least kept things subtle by just doing color-blocking and not overloading it with a bunch of patterns, textures, and helmet graphics.  The ones that ESPN did incorporated everything that would have made Oregon's attempt absolutely atrocious.

Because they were the instigators of the fashion show that is college football.

Are there any good pictures of Utah's helmet tonight?  Pretty cool, IMO.  Airbrushed graphic of the drum and feathers on metallic gloss finish.

The majority of you all clicked the link, therefore ESPN won.

 

Now it's not uniform related, but the "4" on SMU's turf looks off from the rest of it. All other numerals are in the NFL-style serif but the "4" isn't.
