A number font that isn't that similar to the 1988 team is kinda weird. I realize the Champion font may not be possible...but a non-serifed, skinny-curved 1 (for lack of a better description) is more South Carolina than anything Notre Dame ever wore. 

 

I just saw they used the same number font for Maryland's throwbacks...and it still doesn't look good.

Maryland Terrapins Unveil Throwback Football Uniforms For Homecoming Game

August 13, 2019 - 16:21 PM

The University of Maryland will pay homage to the teams of the 1980s with throwback uniforms that will be worn for the Terrapins’ homecoming game against Michigan on Nov. 2. The all-red throwback uniforms feature the iconic Script Terps, which […]

I like the spirit of the throwback (and the Terps script on the red helmet is pretty sweet), but the number font is off, and they should have gone with the Boomer-era split stripes on the helmet. Overall it's a good look that should come back, as the state-flag helmet is past its prime.

I will second this for the most part.

 

I'm not sure it needs to be the full time look since the stripes don't fit well on modern templates.  However, I would certainly be fine with ditching the state flag helmets.

 

I think the current M logo would look really good on  the helmets (maybe red on a black shell, white or a red shell or red on a white shell), with the flag stripe down the middle..

Here's Wisconsin throwbacks. Gotta say not bad and as a Badger fan I really like them. I could do without the brown pants but overall a really solid look.

They're not perfect, but as a Gamecock fan, I really like the look. Helps SCAR stand out amongst the rest of the red schools in the SEC and would make for a solid full-time look.

I liked the Wisconsin “throwbacks” until I saw Northwestern. So lazy. 

Both schools have some interesting stuff in their pasts, but UA couldn’t be bothered to find them.

Not a fan...very boring and very basic. 

 

This is a better throwback look, IMO (and one of the best throwbacks in CFB, period):

Though it would have been way out of the box and great if UA said "let's get crazy" and use this:

It's like they didn't even bother to look at the 88 uniforms. Numbers are not even close, ND logos are wrong, and no alternate helmet with the old spray-painted finish. At least the pants color is similar enough?

 

Under Armour really phoned it in this year.

Boston College going with the 80s throwbacks, like they have for the last couple of years. These are fantastic...except for that number font...

They got the pants to match the Sterling Sharpe/Todd Ellis set but I wish they would've used the actual, overly detailed throwback helmet striping shown above. I'm happy for the white circle and logo to certain to the garnet helmet in place of the script "Carolina."

These Cincinnati throwbacks are pretty good...the jerseys are nice but the helmet stripes should have mirrored the thickness of the jersey stripes...and I kinda wish they could have used a logo on the helmet.

My quick/rough mockup of the SCAR throwbacks. Again, I'd love to see them adopt this look permanently. With so many red teams in the SEC, this could help them stand out amongst the crowd. Plus, I love the retro Falcons look, and this is very similar to that.

Hats off to Under Armour, I'm a big fan of most of these throwback looks.  Now to be fair, all they really had to do was choose a decent throwback and not screw it up.  But kudos to them for not screwing it up. 

 

I'm a sucker for the meshy looking number bit.  Great way to nod back to the oldschool mesh material jerseys.

Nice, but the collar on your mock-up is all black, whereas the Twitter video reveal shows a white-red-white striped pattern on the collar.
