So my friend talked to the Arizona AD at the event & that the AD told him that there will be a 90’s style Desert Swarm throwback for a game or 2 next season.

Not my concept, but I'd go with something like this, removing the stripes from the red & blue helmets, and a white facemask on the white helmet.

The problem with these is that they are just too damn good looking, they leverage a classic design which would likely have staying power for well over a decade. Designs like this mean less work for nike.

White numbers on the blue jerseys would seemingly be way better, based on well...the 90s 😀

These West Virginia uniforms have been circulating a bit on social media, but they've been debunked as a fan-made concept. It's too bad because everything outside of the solid gold block on the blue pants and the truncated stripes is absolutely gorgeous.

I don't know about absolutely gorgeous.  It looks like 2 completely different uniforms.  A blue shirt with a solid yellow collar, no stroke around the letters/numbers.  Yellow pants with 2 blue stripes with a solid blue helmet with no stroke around the logo, nor any stripes.

 

The white shirt has a striped collar, blue numerals with a yellow stroke.  The pants have a solid gold panel and the helmet is white with stripes and a stroke around the logo.  The numbers also don't seem to match between the uniforms.

 

I just hate the lack of uniformity in uniforms.

Nice but I also prefer white numbers on the blue jersey. I would ditch the red helmet and bring back the copper alt helmet. AZ has been a mess for a while, need to clean it up. Just like my team, the UW Huskies.

Any pants stripe is better than plain any day in my book. There are way too many teams with plain pants these days.

There are differences between the two uniforms, however the concept is consistent:

 

Blue Background = Solid gold stripe

Gold or White Background = Blue | Yellow | Blue striping. 

 

You can explain the moments when that consistency is broken due to tradition (like the blue helmet) or necessity (gold numbers outlined in blue would be too difficult to read)

You're not wrong, but that's a lot of if-then statements.

 

In my opinion, uniforms should have uniformity between them.  They should be easily identifiable without examination.

What a tease.  The numbers are still a little wacky for my taste, but miles better than the current ones.  Did these ever get officially debunked?  Or was it word of mouth debunked

I wish they would just take their current set, get rid of the black on the blue jersey, and go back to the Pat White era numbers and be done with it

No.  Italic.  Numbers.  Ever.

Exactly, those looked like numbers you’d find on a nascar.

Isn't NASCAR the official sport of the state of West Virginia though?

Considering there is no nascar track there I’d say no, North Carolina and Florida have stronger claims to that title

Tell the Steelers. 

Or don’t - they look so much better with italics than block numbers, IMO.
