It's been a long time coming, and not really a secret, but they are finally bringing back "Pride Gold" to the football and basketball uniforms!

Here is their "New" branding as well: https://www.uidaho.edu/-/media/UIdaho-Responsive/Files/brand-resource-center/support-services-ucm/trademark-licensing/university-of-idaho-artwork-update.pdf

I like this... but now they come even closer to matching the other black and gold “I” school in Iowa. 
 

I think the major shift away from metallic gold is a little misguided, although the wordmark is excellent and yellow-gold is still overall underused in sports. I like the gray accents as well because they are another “silver and gold” school similar to Colorado.

 

It’s also still sad to see them in the Big Sky. It makes no sense... the athletic dept. lost a ton of funding and they aren’t anywhere close to being an FCS juggernaut like NDSU.

They had little to no choice, so there is that.

 

I'm of two minds when it comes to athletic gold vs. old gold. Both can be great, but athletic gold can work with white in a way that old gold can not.

Not really sure if this belongs here, but I don't know where else it would.

 

Would the NCAA consider enacting an anti-Confederacy themed nickname policy, similar to the one involving Native themed nicknames? As far as I can tell it would only effect a few schools;

 

Washington & Lee Generals - named for General Washington, but also General Lee (This ones kinda iffy)

Ole Miss Rebels

UNLV Rebels

Millsaps Majors - in honor of Confederate Major Reuben Millsaps

 

The ruling could also be expanded to school names, which would knock out a few more.

 

UNLV has had controversy over their Rebel branding for decades.

The shoulder stripes which have looked great recently, will now suck.  Nike does such a crap job on those shoulder stripes.

If UCLA insists on this, they can make it happen. The Vapor Fusion has a side seam that can help support the UCLA stripes.
