Did the NCAA mandate number size on the front of the jerseys? Just wondering since that 1916 uniform would not actually have numbers on it if done correctly. 

Unless they have changed since these

I want to say they banned giant letters on the front after the Wisconsin vs Nebraska unis, but I've not heard anything regarding number size.

I'm surprised Prairie View A&M hasn't just spent the money to update a really bad logo.  Only reasons I can of why they haven't is they're too attached to it or just unwilling to do a logo change and/or rebrand due to cost.

 

While I don't think money is the reasons for the logos, it took until JUST THIS YEAR to get a real football stadium.

And this is what the school had for 50 years before this:

That was the home side... 

 

This was the visitor's side:

Yikes.  You would have thought they could do a rebrand/logo change just to integrate it into the stadium all at once, but I guess getting a new stadium is a nice start.

right. yea im not sure on the current rules. i would assume based on what we've seen in the past, that a jersey number on the back (which this uniform surely would have had) would be enough. so its hard to pinpoint what this is all about exactly

Possible Ohio State throwback. Looks awesome and looks lik it is on the new Oregon template from their bowl game. I don't know what the black tag is inside the collar. Almost looks like a third party manufacturer, made to Nike's specs? Similar to how Ripon has some of the NFL uniforms (non Elite 51) and they just slap a swoosh on them?

i found another larger image, zoomed it in, and the best i can tell, the size tag is just like a normal Nike tag.. the black label above it is hard to make out..

it doesn't make any sense to me, but it appears to say "Music" in white, then it looks like "MANOR FIRE" in red below it... maybe one of you can make it out better than i can..

Front numbers must be 8" large in. A contrasting color. There's a computer that the NCAA was supposed to have that shot down Arizona or someone else's unis.

On closer inspection, I think this says "Music Cannon Fire" which refers to Chic Harley. The design is from his era, and the jersey shown (#47) is the one Ohio State has retired in his honor.

 

James Thurber wrote (of Harley): “If you never saw him run with a football, we can’t describe it to you. It wasn’t like Red Grange or Tom Harmon or anybody else. It was kind of a cross between music and cannon fire, and it brought your heart up under your ears.”

Two questions. What's the capacity of Prairie View's new stadium? Grass or field turf?

Very nice helmet as long as they only wear it on the road. Good for Iowa State to add at least something to differentiate itself from USC, though i would've liked a yellow helmet better.

That's not bad at all.  It fits with their white uniforms and has some consistent striping with their jersey.

That white Iowa State helmet is pretty cool. Would like it more if the facemask and decals weren't metallic.

Agree on the facemask but metallic decals look fantastic on the white helmets.

Wish the stripe stayed constant across the length of the helmet. But besides that small irritant, what a beauty

I'm liking that they actually put stripes on this helmet. Man, it looks gorgeous.

Sorry, if this has already been posted, but shouldn't the pants technically by khaki colored if they are going to be accurate?
