College Football Uniforms - 2016 Season

Recommended Posts

Not a bad look for UVA. Would like to see the white jerseys & (probable) navy blue pants of that set.

Yeah, except for the orange helmet, completely different stripes, and V's everywhere.

 

Seriously?  Didn't we just have this same conversation about Nebraska and Wisconsin.   Here's my list of priorities if I'm designing a college football uniform.  Step one; use my school colors. Step two; look really good.  Step 99;  worry about what other schools look like.

 

Ok, you got me.  Fair point.

 

It seems like UVA has more recently used the orange jerseys a lot (or at least those have been the games I've caught).

...Except Auburn got their colors from Virginia. Auburn even acknowledges that on their official website.

Auburn's first-ever football coach in 1892 was a Virginia alum and took UVa's colors with him. Auburn didn't have any school colors until then.

Interesting story. Good thing CCSLC wasn't around in 1892, we would've ripped him a new one.

*matte blue helmets.

 

I'm intrigued in how this font looks, because everything else about this rebranding screams traditional, yet the leak we saw seems like the font is wonky.

Just got done watching the live feed, they didn't show any throwbacks which was smart since that's the color scheme 99% of the fan base wants. The fonts on the football uni's were better than I thought they'd be and thankfully no white helmet.

Not a big fan of the font and the collar logo looks really cheap . At least the traditionalists should love this set? or does no striping on the pants kill this look ? (helmet striping also different from the jersey)

1) No pants stripe - definite downgrade

2) The weird font is unneccessary. Away numbers look smaller than home because of the unreadable gold outline
3) Helmet stripe still doesnt' go the whole way down to the end of the helmet

4) Sleeve stripes are an upgrade.

5) No throwback shown, but the leaks and indications are that they're coming, probably for the Penn State game.

6) Matte helmet is fine, I guess.

Number font ruins the whole set.

Agree. the new font wasn't necessary. too many additions when simple block would have been fine.

Syracuse is wearing their pink and green throwbacks this year.  Now it's just out of hand.
