I think they’re decent but Army and Nike win the uni battle yet again. I swear sometimes UA thinks all you have to do is throw together a mishmash of random elements... you don’t necessarily make it need to all look good together.

 

Army/Navy should be a color vs. color game too.

Unless one team is willing to go gold jerseys, I don't see the game working out well as navy versus black.

I always watch Army-Navy, but never consistently cheer for a specific school (my family ties are to the Air Force). Generally I cheer either for the underdog or for the team with the better uniforms. Looks like it's "Go Army, Beat Navy" again for me this year.

These sure suck.  I have nothing good to say.  0 stars.

The helmets need way less, . . . "marbling" and a logo on the sides of the helmet. Only thing I don't like about the Army jerseys is the "spray painting" on the right shoulder. I know it has a story to it but it's adding one element too many there.

Overall, I don't hate it but the marble design doesn't do much for me. I look at the helmet and it makes me think I should be looking for a logo that isn't there. Might look cool from a distance, though.

Agreed.  Texture is no substitute for a logo.

Sorta/kinda reminds me of mid-90s Boise State, especially with a similar (if not identical) script:

Gators will look brilliant this weekend. I am shocked by how much I like that look, as a one off. Would prefer a glossy shell, but the script, white face mask and striping is all consistent with their normal look.

 

I can understand why if they were going to wear a blue lid in a non-throwback way, this was the time to try it. Tennessee wears orange with white lids. The blue lids and pants should look great. Big fan of most of the changes Florida has made under the Jordan brand.

Does it not look real to anyone else? It doesn't feel like Florida to me.

Same.

 

Of course it doesn’t “look” like Florida to many... the orange helmets are key to Florida’s usual look. But these are great IMO as a one-off or once-a-year kind of thing.

It doesn’t look like Florida in the slightest. They already have alternate lids with the regular white helmet as well as the throwback. Florida is going down a bad path with ever changing stripes, helmet decals, etc. Stick to the basics and throw in the white lid for a couple games per year as well as the throwback. Done.

Looks like it's time to update the Gators page here on SportsLogos.net to include the white helmet, the white throwback from last year, the blue throwback from this year, and now this blue helmet: https://www.sportslogos.net/logos/list_by_team/675/Florida_Gators/

Just looking at the helmet from a design standpoint, I love it. But it’s just not Florida. I’m sure the uniforms as a whole will look good, but just because they look good, doesn’t mean it’s right. It’s the same reason teams like Nebraska, Stanford, Alabama, Texas, etc. don’t need an inverted version of their respective helmets. Just because it might look good, doesn’t mean it needs to be done. There isn’t anything wrong with the design, but the real issue is the history involved with it

I could not have said it better. florida does not need to do this and should have left blue shells to boise.

Every year I look forward to the Army-Navy uniforms. It's nice to see real military tributes and not just 'we made our logo into a flag logo'. The thought and research that goes into these mean something other than just generic 'patriotism' and 'cool jerseys'. Another well done round of design on both sides.

If Florida really wanted to wear these blue helmets again, they should have gotten a white version of the throwbacks with blue or white throwback pants and it would be much better.
