What's unfortunate about this Baylor set is that it can't easily be mix and matched due to the absence of stripes. Theres no white anywhere on the green and gold uniform pieces, and no gold on the white.

I agree about the white helmets and pants, as those will really only look good with the white jerseys. But the white jerseys could still easily be paired with the gold pants. West Virginia’s new white jerseys don’t have any gold on them, and they still look fantastic with the gold pants (though the navy helmet also helps with that).

For the colored sets, Baylor should stick to only mixing the green and gold uniform pieces. But for the road combos they can pretty much mix and match any of the different pieces and it still should look good for the most part. Green/white/gold, green/white/green, gold/white/gold, green/white/white, etc. should all look pretty sharp.

I gotta say, WVU looks sharp.  Even the unnecessary gray set.  All that's really missing is a gold outline on the  white Jersey's numbers

White/white should never have been shown as an option. 

Of all the options shown, sometimes less is more

The matte helmet shells look so dull compared to the fabrics in this set.

Michigan State Makes Statement With Neon Green-Accented Alternate Uniform

April 13, 2019 - 15:00 PM

As we first reported on Friday, Michigan State unveiled a neon green-accented alternate uniform ahead of its annual Spring Game on Saturday morning. The uniform — which will be worn during a night game this fall, presumably the matchup with […]

If they added the stripe pattern that Missouri just rolled out and placed it on the pants and helmets this combo would look great.

Funny thing about schools seals in Missouri is that about half of the public school seals in the state are actually just the state seal or a variation of the state seal. Mizzou's is clearly different, but three of the quadrants of the shield match the Missouri seal. Missouri State University, Truman State, Northwest Missouri State, and University of Central Missouri just copy the state seal entirely with only minor variations, and have been that way since they were founded as normal schools. The exceptions are Southwest Missouri State (I don't know why they're different from the other historically normal schools), the two HBCUs Lincoln and Harris-Stowe, and two institutions that began as junior colleges and later became universities, Missouri Southern State and Missouri Western State.

 

Seal for the State of Missouri:

Seriously...is there any other state whose schools cover all the cardinal directions the way Missouri does? And that's not even all of them!

 

On another note, now that I've gotten a closer look at West Virginia's numbers...I see the telltale familiar Nike "things" going on...look very closely at the inside counters on the 8, particularly the upper left--notice anything?

Look closer...

See it?? Familiar Nike "trademark" cue.

 

And since we're still on these numbers, from a distance the set as a whole definitely looks better than what it replaced, but yet and still the Swoosh found a way to stick a headscratcher in the mix--what up with that "3", though??

But I guess that's nitpicking at this point...FWIW I still believe the Steve Slaton/Pat White/Owen Schmitt era uniforms @Chawls posted are the best WV's looked this far. That look was signature to them.

I have no idea about other states, but the root of that history is in two parts: The first is that the initial idea for Missouri colleges was the University of Missouri would be the sole statewide institution and flagship educational establishment in the state, and then there would be regional "normal schools" to train teachers. Those normal schools, as they got larger, obviously grew to do more than just train teachers and they became the regional college. The second part is that Mizzou has a stranglehold on the state legislature, so for the most part they have their way in keeping those institutions regional rather than growing their footprint - the only exception being Missouri State University (formerly Southwest Missouri State, and before that Normal School #4). But even then, state statute prohibits any public institution apart from Mizzou to offer PhDs or professional doctorates like law, medical, or dentistry school.

 

So the normal schools became Northwest Missouri State, Southeast Missouri State, University of Central Missouri, and Truman State University (but was called Northeast Missouri State before that). Missouri Southern State and Missouri Western State were junior colleges that got big enough to offer four year degrees. The funny thing is that Missouri Southern is in the extreme Southwest of Missouri only an hour west from Missouri State, and Missouri Western is really in Northwest Missouri, only 45 minutes south of Northwest Missouri State. To add to the confusion, Central Missouri may be "central" going from North to South, but it's only an hour away from the Kansas boarder and is also in the western quadrant of the state. Makes sense, though, considering Mizzou is the state institution that's actually smack dab in the middle of the state, so might as well have somebody else as "Central" Missouri.

But then again, when has Missouri been good at geography? After all, Mizzou joined the SOUTHEASTERN Conference even though we're a Midwestern state, and is bizarrely in the Eastern Division even though it's the second most western school in the SEC.

My head hurt after reading all that! Lol. But thanks for the explanation. That helps me understand some things.

Yeah, sports geography can be so arbitrary at times... think of how long New Orleans, and later Carolina, spent in the NFC West, or how Indianapolis got pigeonholed into the AFC South, despite being two hours from and at more northerly latitude than Cincinnati.

 

But anyway--that's stuff for the reel line mint thread. 😆

I have to admit, I started reading these boards a couple of weeks before joining and one thing that made me feel comfortable signing up was that I could see that a fellow Missouri State supporter was already on here. Glad to see Bears fans wherever I roam.

This bears repeating. 

 

They couldn't have made STATE an inch or shorter so that it's not cut off prematurely on both sides?

 

Biggest hack job I have seen in college football in many years.

Certainly could have, but clearly didn’t want to. Would anybody be talking about this if the wordmarks weren’t seam-to-seam? I’d like to see how it’s translated across sizes. Is it only cut off on the small sizes, but it fits on the larger ones?

I think I kinda like the gigantic STATE across the chest, sure it could be a couple inches smaller. I certainly would have made sure it didn’t get cut off by the arm holes anyway. If the uniform was just dark green and white, I think I might actually like it.

If it doesn’t fit for some sizes but does others wouldn’t you consider that even more of a design flaw? It basically is creating inconsistency.

It wasn't intended to fit within the constraints. It was made to make a statement. 

It's kind of like designing fascia/digital ribbon boards. It's often more effective to blow up words/logos then it is to fit an entire logo in a small area.
