Looks like Charlotte was forced to change their numbers to green on their white jerseys. Looks MILES better. 

 

Also FAU needs to just stick with the white helmet from here on out. 

Big 3rd quarter leads FAU past Charlotte – The North State Journal

 

 I like how they added double outlines to the numbers so it is still technically green-gold-green and thus technically consistent with with the shoulder stripes.

I’d love to see them put some striping on the green helmet to tie it all together.

This is the company that tackled Charlotte's jersey number changes. It almost looks like they just slapped a green layer on top of the existing gold/green number

As someone who's worked in a similar field of work, even just seeing two pics, they f'kn nailed it.

Sooo...is that to imply that the original white jerseys weren't NCAA compliant? And if not...you mean to tell me no one thought to check with the NCAA to see if the (re)design was compliant before unveiling them in the first place? And did they not learn from Florida State's blunder five years ago? (Speaking of blunders...yeah. I still don't know how that one got past the NCAA compliance people.)

They probably got the go ahead and then the NCAA realized the gold wasn't as dark as it needed to be. Seeing as Bethune Cookman and other FCS teams have gotten away with numbers that are the same color as the jersey with a wide outline as their attempt top make them readable.

I think this came up earlier in this thread, but one of the TV commentators in Charlotte's first game against App State was saying that they should've been penalized and lost a timeout in each half because the jerseys violated the NCAA's guidelines on contrasting colors. I think the officials let it slide since Charlotte apparently didn't get their jerseys until right before that first  game on 9/12; they supposedly even had to have some of the players' moms helping sew the names on the back because they were so pressed for time. Due to the COVID cancellations and postponements, Charlotte did have 3 weeks between their first and second game so thankfully were able to find the above-noted vendor, who had ample time and did a bang up job remedying the perceived problem with the numbers.

Honestly, I don’t know if the NCAA requires pre-screening uniforms for compliance. I know we do so as a courtesy to the schools (definitely cuts down on headaches and is one less thing for a busy staff to worry about), but I think some tend to treat it as a “it’s better to ask for forgiveness, not permission” situation. 😂

This is pretty funny as I am from Idaho ;)

 

Speaking of Idaho, new helmets this season!  But with the Big Sky moving all fall sports to the spring, we will have to wait until next year to see them in action.  Maybe new uniforms to go with these as well?

Seems like it would have been easier to go without names on the back of the jerseys for week 1.

 

Truth be told, names on the back of jerseys is one of those unnecessary things in sports we've been trained to accept.

Iowa State will be in black and white tomorrow against OU. This time the field will match the team

 

Why does Iowa St go black and white when their regular colors look good with black?

Can't speak on the current "NCAA approval process for jerseys," but an old interview with the Under Armour designer that created the failed South Carolina Wounded Warrior jerseys stated that they send a few samples to the on-field officials to test out. One official said he makes his wife stand in the backyard wearing the jersey to see if he can decipher the numbers from afar.

 

It's a good interview. Listen if you have time: https://makersofsport.com/episodes/11/adam-clement

Idaho should dump the old gold and go with the athletic gold. Though I'm not sold on the grey facemask here. Feel like black would work better.

UNLV released a new set of uniforms featuring an eclectic collection of helmet options. Digging the helmet choices, especially the metallic red and gray (they match the flashiness of LV), but can't help but feel that they uniforms are a worse recolor of their previous set:

These look like someone in the UNLV athletic department saw Wazzou’s set from last few years and then tried to mimic them in the Nike Custom Uniforms design-a-jersey website. The new numbering looks similar to the “Spartan” font Nike offers in its online DIY catalogue. Anyone know if Nike had much if any creative role in this update?

The satin red UNLV helmets were better than the new ones. Don’t like this update... it’s not crazy cool and really, it’s just not needed.

Doubtful. These look like pure catalog uniforms. The helmets look nice but that's about it.
