They only ever wear this look once a year, usually early on, but Minnesota should seriously make this their primary look. It's easily their best.

I wouldn't say easily. I prefer this:

Or if Minnesota's white pants had stripes matching their gold helmet stripes, this combination would be right up there (either with gold shells or their normal maroon shells):

GGW is their worst look.  I think they should just lose white pants altogether.  MGM and GMG should split time home and away.

IMO Oregon State has looked like trash since unveiling those logos/uniforms in 2013. They need to revert back to these ASAP

Frankly these are the best Oregon State uniforms:

See I think GMG for the Gophers just looks awkward. The gold helmet in general I'm not a big fan of.

 

Agree about mixing gold with white.

At least they did it better than Miami. Lest we forget that Michigan is nothing but a bunch of Princeton copycats.

The Oregon State uniforms that preceded these are better.

I like when teams stick to solid logos for at least few decades. You can shake up he unis and helmet colors, but I like consistency.  I like OSU's previous logo better, script and all.  Too many teams have run away from classic script.  I wish the WSU cougars would embrace script like the helmets of my youth.

No they didn't. Oregon State is one of many teams that screwed up that early 2000s Miami template.

Tennessee needs to make there Smokey Grey helmet a Matte or Satin helmet.

 

Its really hard to tell the layers are there because of the reflection of the stadium.

I would prefer to make it a retired helmet.  Tennessee wearing all gray is like Alabama wearing all black.  I know so many want alternate looks, and an orange helmet would simply be too overwhelming to look at.  But some teams just should not go alternate.

I agree with the helmet.. An alternate look doesn't always have to be an entire head-to-toe uniform.. A grey jersey with they're normal helmet and pants would suffice for Tennessee (and many/most others as well)

I strongly disagree, I love the smokey grey uniforms. I think that they're perfectly executed alternate uniforms in that they're not garish or violently different from the classic set while still being refreshing to break out 1-2 times a year to energize the team and fanbase. The smokey grey helmet is one of my favorites in all of football, although I would be interested to see what a different finish might look like. Grey may be the trendy color in sports aesthetics right now, but I think that it may be more than a fad for Tennessee due to its popularity with the fans along with the good reasoning behind using it.

Maroon-maroon-gold and all-maroon are Minnesota's best looks. I'd love the gold-maroon-gold too, if not for the Ski-U-Mah stripe on the helmets.

I agree. While the gold/yellow jersey is not bad, it just screams "Alternate Uniform".  It would be like advocating for Michigan or the Pittsburgh Steelers to switch to a yellow primary uniform.

Re: Oregon State, I was always much more partial to these -

The all black with the little splashes of orange was an awesome look. And I loved that logo, too.

 

These two would be my other favorites:
