College athletics identity changes

Recommended Posts

If The Citadel wanted to make a move akin to what LSU does, and what Georgia Tech did before Collins took over, they could start wearing white tops at home, at least occasionally, and mimic the cadet attire shown below. A while helmet, white jersey with light blue shoulder stripes to mimic the epaulets (similar to the old Adidas Mississippi State and/or Manizel-era A&M uniforms), and dark pants (not sure if that is navy or grey) with a black stripe to match the cadets would look pretty good IMHO.

The pants are grey. I wouldn't go with this as the starting point.

We all want all of our sports uniforms to say The Citadel. Merchandise and everything else included as well. Its a very sore topic among both fans and alumni. Many folks including myself refuse to buy merchandise if it doesn't have The on it. 


The first thing they should do is utilize "Citadel Blue" much more.


Shouldn't the school's color palette feature "The Citadel Blue" for consistency's sake?

Nice try, but no. Thats not how the English language works. 

 

Edit: We've done the whole "Cadet Dress Up" thing in years past. It was actually our previous set.

Welp, I'll admit that I didn't know that and I'm embarrassed since I live in the Charleston area. I think the Jack Douglas/1990's beat the Gamecocks and Razorback era set was pretty great as well, though maybe incorporate a little bit of gray to help further differentiate The Citadel from Chapel Hill.

I understand the history behind the nickname is not exactly clean.. But, part of me wished that Valpo went the way Holy Cross did: Keep the name, but change the logo to a shield with a monogram on it.

Doesn't that unfairly exclude the non-athletes?  We are all Students!

Dammit.  Leave it to a lawyer to bust me on a technicality.

 

Fine.  Valparaiso Affiliated Individuals.
