So they have a paw print on the collar, a paw print patch directly below that, and two paw prints on the shoulders?

Blech.

The top paw is part of the undershirt not the jersey itself, there is only one paw print on the v of the collar.

I know it's the lighting from the picture, but it looks as if the orange team from the upstate changed their orange to a shade that is similar to Texas'.

Definitely just the lighting. If you look at the pic of the away jersey, then you can tell the orange is the same.

I would hope and assume so.  It would be awful to see a team of their magnitude to be playing nationally-televised games with mismatching oranges.

Looks like the paw print has a strange drop shadow effect. I was also they would drop the purple circle around the collar logo. Unneccesary. Either way, Clemson will continue to look very sharp.

The drop shadow also looks grey, which is weird.

South Carolina showed off some of their combos in a video on their twitter. Looks like they HOPEFULLY wont have the feather helmet and just have three helmets (garnet/white/black) with the C logo & Gamecock

 

Garnet and Black have different striping than the white helmet which may bother some of you

Or depending how you look at it, from a color aspect at least, the black helmet has different striping than the garnet & white helmets

Clemson today didn't wear the new uniforms, but they did play the video for the set today at the game. The team itself hasn't posted the video yet, but the only changes that we've seen were shown. Specifically, larger numbers, the return of the paw on the shoulder, and the numbers on the sleeve. There were some preliminary sketches shown at the beginning, one of the more memorable being one with the helmet stripe on the sleeves. I'll be sure to post the video once it becomes available online.

Not uniform related, but the Toledo Rockets are currently installing new field turf. According to the article below, changes will be minimal. Sounds like the bench areas will now be navy blue, and the field numbers will be outlined in blue. Aside from that, it doesn't sound like much will change.

Very minor news, but i figured I'd share.

I know it matches their look from the 80s, but the orange-white-orange stripe on the white pants really bothers me. It should be purple-orange-purple to match the helmet and other pants.

Buffalo is (thankfully) dropping its "State University of New York" wordmark. Looks like a new "spirit mark" as well.

Hopefully this means new uniforms instead of simply ripping the patches off the front of the old uniforms.

Better photos of the Clemson uniforms. Look like the pants striping has remained the same...only pants I haven't seen are the white ones. I'm curious because the website they launched them on referenced these being a throwback to the 1981 set but those had different striping. Given the orange and purple pants stripes remained the same, I'm assuming the whites did, too.

 

I'm definitely a fan. Always loved the paws on the shoulders and missed them when they moved them to the sleeves. The collar logo is a little redundant. Could have been an opportunity to include the Clemson "C" logo.

Didn't realize Clemson even had any other logos besides the Paw .. pretty great brand but with the way Nike has been giving team's new secondary logos i'm surprised they didnt use it or include an updated version

 

 

I'm guessing this is that C logo ?

My take is that the C logo isn't strong enough to put on such a small application. It works on a baseball hat, but not so much as a small 1x1" patch. This is where a secondary logo like maybe a tiger head would work nicely, but after seeing what happened with Kentucky this is fine.

 

The fanbase has been overwhelming positive and on board with this new set, and I am too.

Doubtful.... that one is mainly used by the baseball team. 

 

I think the one he's referring to is the one on the caps of all the assistant coaches.
