SEC Throwbacks

Recommended Posts

I'm very pleased that the conference is being systematic about it had having each team do a home and away against another team in throwbacks. Plus, I think the doing the whole conference tourney in them will be cool. I'm sure my beef will be that their shorts will be so long that the whole uni will look sloppy.

Vanderbilt's is the best. The school that should ditch its current look for the throwback is Ole Miss. Maybe Auburn too.

Much better than what they have now with the oversized, oversized numbers.

I like all of them and the whole idea. Just ONE problem. My Gators. They're still only selling the #1 to everyone. I mean come on it's a throwback. Sell them with whoever was the star player during the year those jerseys were worn. Sheesh! :wacko:

On the Kentucky jersey, it has the wrong number. Dan Issel wore #44.

It doesn't matter - Issel never wore that style uniform; he wore the old Rupp (satin shorts) uniforms. The SEC throwbacks are from the 1977/78 NCAA Championship team (also worn in at least 1978/79, and maybe the following year as well).

DEFINITELY!!! These are much better than what we've been wearing over the last few years. The women went to an older font recently, but look as if they've ditched that look.

Along those lines, the LSU one has been billed locally as a Pete Maravich-era "throwback" Maybe there's an older LSU fan out there who can help me out, but I don't think LSU wore yellow during Pete's time there. I give them props for getting the fonts close to a Maravich-era match. But if LSU didn't wear yellow back then, then the "yellow throwback" is a bastardized version. And I can't stand improperly done "throwbacks."

If they were the '78 Championship year jerseys, they should have had Robey or Givens.

I agree, I don't think I have ever seen a picture of The Pistol wearing a yellow LSU jersey.

I actually think that Florida should keep their throwbacks as full time uniforms, too. Be better than what they have now, and maybe it would get rid of their black. I don't mind when black is an added color (see Duke) or when it's a thrid color that gets seldom used (the never-seen Maryland blacks or NC State's blacks from a couple of years ago) but schools who already have two colors (Florida, Miami, UCLA) who add a black uniform eat at me.

A better look at the Tennessee home jersey.

Rumor has it these will be the full-time jerseys next year.

These are 100% accurate because the manufacturer (adidas, by Ripon) had an original Ernie and Bernie era jersey in hand when designing and manufacturing them.

As long as we never see Bruce Pearl in that hideous orange blazer again, I don't care what the Vols wear on the court :P

He's already said he's going to keep busting that thing out for the Vandy and Kentucky games in the future. Shield your eyes accordingly. B)
