Here is the UA mockup... the shade of gold looks PERFECT but that blue is a little too purpley for my taste

What are some teams overdue for new uniforms? Boston College jumps to the forefront, theyve been wearing the same digs since 2011-ish

Really dig the updated VT look. Now they just need to consolidate and streamline their helmets so they are all consistent. Right now, they've currently got one for each quarter of the season.

Downgrade for Virginia Tech, The new template isn't as kind to the shoulder stripes and I'm not the hugest fan of the bigger collar. If you were going to change fonts at least change it to the old custom font shown below.

There's like a million schools outside the p5 using that font

It's pretty dated too. That new font's a little slimmer but still a good look.

I like the new VT font...for basketball uniforms. Not so much on the football unis. I really liked the block font, and felt it just fit well with the overall look. The new font - along with the small, thinner shoulder stripes - just doesn't seem to do the look justice. It's too thin on the front. But that's my thoughts on it.

Ah found it. I think the problem with this, and the existing, is it's a negative image (shadows are yellow and highlights are red). If they used the new one, as is on the helmet, it would be much improved.

This with a red mask and  bingo!  Just makes sense in so many ways.

does anyone else see that since the majority of the logo is red (especially near the outlines) and thus would get lost on a real helmet when moving and further than 10ft away. its not a good helmet logo for USC, and definitely not better than the current that has plenty of yellow in it to allow you to tell what it is and not get lost.

The current helmet logo is a negative of the actual logo...so if they did a negative version of new Tommy (like they did in '92), it might not look terrible.

Even Northeastern managed to win 3 conference games in their last season before disbanding the program

That is pretty cool, if not a little disorienting...

 

I'm sure most won't be shocked, but I'm always amazed at how precise the designs are cut into fields by the grounds crews.  Looking at both sidelines at the 50s, that Northwestern stripe design is symmetrical to an inch.

Glad you said this... I thought for sure ESPN screwed up. But yea, that really is the before/after. According to the AU grounds crew Twitter, they were planning to resod anyway. Will be done in May.

I love it! Way more creative than alternating striping every 5-10 yards. I wish more teams would do stuff like this.

I hope they don't stray to far from this. Definitely one of my favorite uniform sets that we have had. KEEP the matte helmet, eliminate the curves around the shoulders and this set is a keeper .

The vibe I'm getting from the concepts, the Cal message boards, and articles is a desire to go more traditional e.g. bringing back the Joe Roth memorial unis cal-03-07-bluegoldthrowback-johnpyle-ver

 

A modernization of those unis (darker blue, matte blue helmet, custom number font, etc.) would be awesome.
