College Football uniforms- 2018

Recommended Posts

I hope not, its just so much of the jersey taken up by the number, and certain fonts would be terrible with it. These uniforms are slightly boring, and I really dislike the contrasting nameplate. I hope that doesn't become the norm either.

Don't get me wrong... there's still plenty to dislike about the current Ducks' uniform.  The helmet wings are so subtle as to be almost invisible, and the stubborn insistence on the monochrome combos, mostly. But I just find the numbers, especially with that particular font, look kind of bold and interesting filling all that space. And that green used with that yellow remains an amazing color scheme... the de-emphasizing of black, gray, and all the other ugly, trendy "colors" (at least on the yellow and green uniforms) is a big plus.  You'll never hear me criticizing a CFB team for being "too plain" after what we've had to endure the past 10 to 15 years.

 

If they could just give me green over green over yellow... just once...

I mostly agree with your assessment here, though I actually like the subtlety of the wings on the new green and black helmets. They could still be made a little bit less subtle, but for the most part I like that they went with the tonal wings on those two helmets. The insistence on the monochrome combos is a bit annoying, though I don’t completely disagree with the premise of sticking to four basic looks, rather than mixing and matching to create an endless amount of combinations like they’ve done in the past. Personally I’d just like to see a few different combos, namely yellow/green/yellow, yellow/white/yellow, and either green/green/yellow or yellow/green/green. Possibly a couple others as well. 

 

Also, they did wear green/green/yellow once back in 2013, for the Civil War:

131129.RJK_.OEM_.FBC_.OregonState.1492.j

That was before they had the apple green helmets to match the jerseys, so there was a bit of a mismatch between the dark green helmets and lighter green jerseys. They haven’t worn that combo since then, but it’s one that I think would look really sharp with this new set.

Illinois vs Penn State was an interesting visual last night with the mono-orange/blue trim and mono white/blue trim matchup, not necessarily a good matchup but kinda cool.

>implying PSU has trim to begin with.

I obviously wasn’t a fan of how the game turned out, but I agree that Mississippi State vs Kentucky was an excellent uniform matchup. State looked incredible in Maroon/White/Gray, and I think Kentucky is one of the few teams that can pull off mononchrome with their shade of blue.

Miss. State has not released one uniform combo that has been bad this year. They are slowly becoming my 3rd favorite uniforms in the SEC. As far as Kentucky, I believe they look better with the white facemask and the white helmet stripe in monochrome. 

 

Granted this uniform template was the last set, but I think it looks better:

So close and yet so far. Change the pants to blue and the look would improve immensely.

 

We haven't gone white/white/blue or white/white/red with the current unis yet. I'm still waiting for blue/blue/red or red/blue/white at home.

We'll never go R/B/W at home, and probably not B/B/R either. Give me W/B/W, and W/B/B with W/R/W as an alternate and that would be perfect.

White helmets should be the only choice. Alternate between red and blue jerseys with white pants at home and red and blue pants with white jerseys on the road. We don’t need any other combos.

The Foster Farms Bowl is now the Redbox Bowl. This is the bowl game played at Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara, CA. It has tie-ins to the Pac-12 and Big Ten.

So did that mean we can rent DVDs instead of watching the game??

Wow, huge downgrade... Purdue beat UA in the Foster Farms Bowl last season and although it isn't a big bowl it had an awesome trophy. Hopefully they maintain that despite completely giving up on the great imagery of the bridge. (You can see the bowl logo in H11K's signature a few posts up)

So it took me about 10 minutes of watching the game and a Google search for a 2017 image to make sure I wasn’t losing my mind...what’s with Wisconsin and the white facemasks vs Iowa?

They've been doing that since like 2015
