I just had a thought of an idea: Notre Dame jersey with 80s Astros style  stripes.

Do people tend to think of these as lazy or do you like them?

 

I love them. As someone who knows every uniform since I started buying cards i the early 1980s, I enjoy seeing these modern takes. I see them more as tributes than rip-offs.

West Virginia used to have a similarly Yankees-like cap logo, though IIRC they did away with it somewhere around ten years ago.

Yea I'm not sure they copied the yankees, I'm pretty sure its a throwback logo (which may of originally been modeled off the yankees) but yea they're phasing it out.

The entertainingly random ones, I like (why is a school in Mississippi using the Twins' font? Why are the Padres' wordmarks so inexplicably popular?).

 

The endless take-offs on the Rainbow Guts and the 80s White Sox beach-blanket jerseys, I'm getting tired of, though.

 

A couple more...

the Gophers' lifting the Twins' old road wordmark:

In the late 90s, the UWM Panthers were wearing the 1994 Brewers "MILWAUKEE" script.

It's always perplexed me that, given how popular the 80s Brewers are locally, that the Panthers haven't thought to swipe the road script from that era and build their brand around that.  I bet they'd sell an ass load of merch.

EDIT: Turns out we were also one of the schools who ripped off the Padres in the mid-2000s.  This is the best pic I could find.

There was also these grayscale rainbow guts in 2015:

Rainbow guts seems to be the most copied, I think:

Looks like adidas and Under Armour had their own flavors you could recolor too, since UWM and Louisville are identical, and Northwestern and Hawai'i are identical.

Admittedly, I'm surprised UWM hasn't done anything resembling the Pirates, given the color scheme.  Maybe they have and I'm merely unaware of it, though.

I do find it generally lazy, given that college uniforms in other sports tend to establish their own aesthetic. Football especially, where there are so many classic looks, new trends, and the Iowa Hawkeyes are an interesting exception.

 

All that said, this Wildcats jersey is sweet. Purple and white is gorgeous, and a purple rainbow is better than the over-use of black to me.

I feel like it'd be weird if they did that now, given that the Pirates are in the Brewers division.

Granted, it'd probably still look better than anything they've trotted out in the past decade or so.  If ever there was proof that no one in the UWM athletic department gives a :censored:, just look at some of their baseball uniforms.  Baseball uniforms are the hardest uniforms to mess up.

So, uh, looks Prairie View also joined Florida International and Wisconsin-Milwaukee on the "PadrePanthers" train at some point...
