Why was an unannounced alt uniform necessary for a road game against Vandy on the SEC Network?

Because Adidas.

Navy Midshipmen Reveal 1960s Throwback Uniform For Army Game

December 5, 2019 - 16:56 PM

With its history dating back to 1870, few college football programs boast the history of the United States Naval Academy. Yet the early-1960s in particular stand out, which is why the Midshipmen will wear throwback uniforms that pay homage to […]

Why did they do that to the helmets? There is no reason to airbrush the vents when you could just make them the same color as the old helmet and you’d get the same idea.

The airbrushing on the vents is unnecessary and just makes it look like they are emphasizing them for riddel.

 

 

I can't think of one instance where airbrushing helmet features has looked good. It's distracting, looks sloppy and ruins an otherwise awesome throwback.

I'm not generally a fan of going for a totally different uniform like Army and Navy tend to do for their game.  That said, in a vacuum, that Navy jersey is terrific!

I disagree with this one as it's meant to mimic the helmet of the Heisman Trophy rather than just looking weather beaten. And it still manages to fit the rest of the uniform.

Based on the video and photos of the Ducks' final walkthrough, it looks like they'll be wearing their dark green helmets for the Pac-12 CG.

Yep. Disappointed they won’t be going with the classic yellow/apple green/yellow, but I’d still be relatively happy with either of these combos:

It’s also possible that they could repeat a combo, such as the mono-dark green or the dark green/yellow/dark green. We’ll see, the revealing should be this evening.

I get what they are going for, but it looks like someone just randomly spray painted black on a gold helmet. Adding texture, like ND, and less contrast between the two colors would have helped.

Well then make it look like a leather helmet design like Texas A&M did a few years ago but gold/bronze. Doing it to modern helmet vents just makes me realize it’s a riddel speedflex helmet more, rather than a navy helmet

The Ducks are repeating a combo for the second week in a row, this time going with the mono-dark green combo for tomorrow’s Pac-12 Championship game:

Gotta say, I’m pretty disappointed by this move. I like this combo, but would’ve much preferred the yellow/apple green/yellow, yellow/dark green/yellow, or even dark green/apple/dark green. I’m hoping they at least go with the yellow and/or dark green gloves and accessories with this combo this time around instead of the white they wore earlier this season.

Fun fact: Brees-era Purdue used an identical number treatment. All white with an "offset" white stroke (for lack of a better way to describe it).

The Dallas Cowboys still rock these numbers on the navy jerseys. Also I didn’t mind the Aggies helmets with the huge state of Texas logo. Those were actually awesome mainly because it was an oversized logo without numbers on one side....the black and all white alt uniforms were not good

Army gets an A+ imo. Those should be full time 

These are good for a one off, I still prefer the regular uniform sets over this though in terms of a perpetual look. It would get old pretty quick.

Army’s uniforms and accompanying merch are absolutely outstanding.

I almost feel like most of Ft. Hood will be wearing these next week. At least the folks on that side of post. I might grab a 9th Cav shirt though.
