"New uniforms give LSU classic look"

Recommended Posts

They will have 8 different jerseys and all will be relics of the championship days in the 90s. I guess if you can't play like it anymore, you might as well look like it.

..and others of the 1991 (grey with interlocking LSU on the left chest), 1993 (white pinstripes with Tigers across chest) and 1997 (purple jerseys like the gold).

I hate the vests and LSU rarely wore them with Bertman, but our coach now is fat and loves them apparantly.

This would be better news if this number was pared down to 2 (1 home, 1 away).

Yeah I am pretty sure this is the first year LSU has had Russell. The jerseys they sell in the gift shop are exact replicas made by Nike, which is strange.

Most college teams have at least 3 road uniforms because it is impractical for them to wash uniforms on the road (playing 3 games in 3 days). It is also a quick turnaround even at home from Friday nights to Saturday afternoons so most have at least 2 home uniforms. In regionals they can play 5 or 6 games in 3 days so variety becomes even more necessary. Schools like Stanford might have 2 sets of the same uniform, but most others elect to have them all different.

I'm not against a team having 5 or 6 different uniforms for practical reasons (cleaning, etc.) -- I think the major league teams do something similar. I just think those 5 or 6 should fall into two categories -- one home style and one away style. I'm not a Yankees fan, but I like how they have two uniform styles, and that's it.

I liked the uniforms with LSU in Geaux. Isn't that why they had this font designed in the first place? So they could unify their athletic teams?

Well, there's the possibility I could buy yet another LSU hat with the announcement of a new road hat, but with a description of a grey hat with a purple bill, I have to see it first.

But what I really want right now is pics of all these jerseys and I want 'em NOW! *heh heh heh*

Russell Athletic's website holds no answers, FYI. And there's nothing on the official LSU sports site.

I think they used to have a purple on purple jersey I liked. Anyone have a photo of this?

Best I could find but I believe that's basically how the baseball team's looked as well.
