College Football Uniforms - 2016 Season

Recommended Posts

Take this with a grain of salt because I can offer exactly 0 proof, but I was speaking with a member of the Michigan athletic department the other day and she mentioned that nike was developing both a custom font and pattern for Michigan that were somehow unique to the school, but I have no idea in what capacity they will actually be used on the uniform. She also complained that they weren't allowed to make any new promotional material with any adidas gear in it. She said Nike was furiously working to finish just 1 football uniform so they could start taking promotional shots for the 2016 season, which means the earlier leak was likely a prototype.

Hopefully Nike doesn't over complicate this. Michigan should have one of the easiest uniforms in CFB to design.

Is that a custom font, or has Nike used that before?

 

It looks like the same font as Rutgers' new uniforms

It's similar, I'll give you that, but it's not quite the same. Look at the difference between this 2 and the Rutgers' 2:

The Portland State number font is 99% the same as the Astros' number font.  That's why it looks so similar (from Conrad's font file):

The athletic director & university president may overrule the coach and allow it. We don't know the full detail$ of Michigan's new deal with Nike/Jordan Brand.

It wouldn't surprise me if the new number font is similar to the throwback font. The pattern is probably sublimated bumblebee stripes, and it will be used for sports other than football, except for maybe on an alt.

You mean the middle aged crazy man who sleeps over at recruits' houses?  

 

Yeah, he seems sane.

That old Portland State logo reminded me of a rapid transit train with horns...

Inspiration and full number set. While I don't love the new numbers, I do think they're ok and I like the double outline since it reminds me of the Fitz drop shadow style.

Needs a stripe on the pants and a white outline on the numbers instead of that stupid double outline.

Somebody should get with their equipment managers and teach them how to put a helmet stripe on straight

I wouldn't mind Pitt's uniforms if they either had a single number outline or none at all. The double outlines make the font look thin. Simply making the first outline from the numbers the same color as the number and it would be better. In other words, make the white outline on the road numbers navy and the navy outlines on the home gold.

 

Another thing that kinda bugs me is how loose and, dare I say, "careless" that Pitt script is (sort of like the Minnesota Twins throwback script), yet how blocky the numbers are.

Wisconsin's contract with adidas is done in about 40 days or so. We be seeing something soon. Definitely excited to see the shade or shades of cardinal Wisconsin runs out on September 3rd.

Man, Adidas just can't keep their big name schools.  Pretty soon, they're only going to be left with a bunch of lower-tiered P5 schools and non-P5 nobodies.

Now that UCLA is moving on from Adidas. What P5 schools do they have left? Nebraska, Miami, NC State, and Texas A&M all come to mind. Arizona State too?
