Removal of Old English font = downgrade. It was a unique brand within FBS; now they're just another "impact italics" team.

 

You may be right, but I'd say removing the tire tread automatically makes the new set better.

Unique doesn’t mean goodalot of the time, ususally there’s a reason why no one else does a certain thing

Agreed in principle, but the Old English also looked awesome, as did the classy navy-and-gray block numbers.

Good. Teams gotta stop with the weird mono-colored versions of their logos.

I don't dislike ASU's pitchfork logo, especially when it's colored in properly.

 

It's not Sparky, but it's far from terrible.

Yeah. But unfortunately it's one of those oversized-logo-with-number-on-the-other-side helmets

Putting aside my extreme bias for a moment, the pitchfork needs to be relegated to secondary status. Sparky belongs on ASU's helmet.

 

Then again, as I've said before, the ridiculous numbers of alternates trend needs to die already. Keep it simple: you can have one helmet, one jersey and one pair of pants in each school color plus white. That means ASU can have an all-gold combination, an all-maroon combination and an all-white combination. That gives you 27 possible combinations. Assuming that a team doesn't go to the playoff, that's more than enough jerseys for two seasons' worth of games for a school that has two school colors.

Satin orange helmet is a definite improvement over the matte orange for Bowling Green.

It was pretty much a guarantee to change when they announced the new wordmarks last year. The home unis were already swapped out. Not sure what template that is, it's a teamwear deal for sure, but it beats the old uniforms. At least the neck is the same color.

Would I belong in Unpopular Opinions if I said that I prefer the pitchfork to Sparky?

Do we expect there to be a new Nike template when the Oregon uniforms are announced? 

 

Was watching one of the ‘hype’ videos on their twitter feed & it looked like a couple of the players had new template practice uniforms. I know Nike usually tests new stuff at Oregon.

Oregon has been real secretive over these uniforms so I guess anything is possible.

Maybe the change was too subtle or was announced earlier, but I didn't see it here. The Iowa Hawkeyes changed their number font to their custom typeface:

We discussed at length why they should have stuck to their old block numbers instead of going to numbers that have a real Michigan State vibe to them.

The yellow in the logo is a lot better, and wearing yellow pants instead of white pants livens it up a lot too.
