That OR it'll be revived in the spring (hopefully).

Possibly dependent on a vaccine? It would be an interesting season not only because of the odd timing/circumstance, but it would mean many of the known stars in the league would opt out for good reason. I wonder if any OOC games make it into a spring season, were it to happen.

Figures that that happens when I finally get the chance to start such an important thread.

I am having a hard time conceptualizing what a spring season would look like with regard to timing and amount of games. I guess you could do it like baseball and play after the school year ends but then you are probably encroaching on the '21 fall season unless you modify that. Would a 6-8 game mini season satisfy the rabid fan bases? Granted offseason programs have become overblown but I would think players would need around 8-10 weeks of downtime before going back into camp for the next season. Overall this whole thing is a colossal mess and the prudent thing to do would be to cancel the season and start '21 with a totally clean slate.

I'd look at the old WLAF schedule. Games started in mid-March and the season ended in June. So if you push the start up to mid-February, play 10 weeks with no byes, you'd have the regular season end on April 10th, conference championships the 17th, two weeks for bowl games spread across the tow weeks. The semi-finals would be played May 8th, and the championship on May 15th or 17th, depending on what they decide to do. That gives basketball March Madness, which would probably move from Thursday-Sunday to Monday-

Thursday. Baseball would have June as it usually does. The actual winner in this could be the XFL which could sit out until 2022 and figure out how to make a better spring product by watching how college football does. Every level will be playing so there's a lot of data to crunch. For most schools, they'll end their season at the same time they normally would for spring football. The rest would be adding up to an extra month of football. The real question is if the NFL would consider moving the draft into that space between the semi-fiinals and the championship, similar to what the WNBA did with their drafts in previous years.

New A&M uniforms will debut tomorrow. The helmet will be glossy and have a white facemask based on the teaser.

They'll be some of the few uniforms to see the field this fall since the SEC's boosters will fight tooth and nail to make sure that the teams play.

 

I won't specify why they'll fight for it, of course.

Less than 50% of schools at FBS are still planning to play this fall. Sun Belt teams are taking their lead from the SEC. I almost want to see a fall and spring season happen. I'd love to see the CFP try figuring out what to do.

The college football uniforms fanfare used to be so robust, even before covid it has really died down the past couple years.

I think the lack of spring games hurt presentation timelines this year. You'd also have recruits slipping up and taking pictures of new gear. Schools have gotten better at delaying the chances of leaks.

Looks like a slight gray outline on the logo? Could be just an effect from the decal (edit: yeah I think it's just the decal). We'll find out soon enough...

Confirmed its the 1998 throwbacks but with the current aTm logo and plain white numbers rather than faux-screen printed numbers.

I'm sad that they've gone away from the shoulder stripes, that was a unique and iconic look that they owned. The new uniforms aren't bad, and I understand that they have history behind them, but there was no reason to ditch the old set.

Would be better as the alternate. Like Magic said, they should have kept using the shoulder stripes.

I think these look great for A&M. Prefer these over the shoulder stripes...the shoulder stripes would be a good alternate. Making the numbers flat instead of a beveled is definitely an upgrade. The new number font is an upgrade. Wish the cuffs were white, or it would have been great if they brought back the collar design from the 90s.

The “barbwire accents” are pointless, IMO, but this is classic aTm.

Here are the super :censored:ty fan replica uniforms for $74.99. They couldn't even get the enlarged team name right. The previous version had the "shoulder stripes" on the sleeves only and no actual stripes on the shoulder

Was really hoping to see maroon collars and cuffs on the away uniforms. Adidas fan jerseys are vastly inferior to what Nike produces.
 

Looking forward to seeing the rest of the new custom number font. I’m not a fan of the trend of random notches in numbers but these look very subtle. Overall, a massive upgrade with the return of glossy helmets and white face mask with an enlarged wordmark. As an Aggie, I really like the look.  I do think white socks would be much better than black.
