Survival, is that an official graphic, or a template you made up?

It does a great job of showing how the uni's look when cut for field use, whereas the Wheeler template does a great job of showing how replica uni's would appear on fans. I wonder if concepts that are actually reviewed by teams would include mock ups on both templates?

Unveiled statues boost pre-game pride

Officials also reveal black uniforms honoring tribe

DEMOCRAT SENIOR WRITER

The all-black uniforms were modeled by FSU linebacker Buster Davis. The black jerseys are mostly mesh. The black pants are inscribed in garnet with "Seminoles" down one leg and "Unconquered" down the other. The outfit includes gold and black shoes, with "Unconquered" written in garnet on each shoe's Velcro strap.

The uniform was created by Nike, which supplies all FSU uniforms, in consultation with the Seminole tribe. Dave Hart, FSU athletic director, said the uniform was originally intended for one-time use but is so popular with players that it will be worn once a season.

Kit Morris, Nike vice president, said black was chosen because it's one of the colors of the Seminole flag. Osceola said all four colors in the flag - black, white, red and yellow - have multiple levels of significance to the tribe. She said FSU's black uniforms can be viewed as representing "the undying effort to win."

"This is the best uniform since I've been here," fifth-year senior Davis said, before turning to Morris. "Y'all did a good job for Oregon (which has black and green uniforms). But Oregon can't touch this."

Just saw the uniforms on ABC as they showed FSU players warming up to show what game was on next and I gotta say, they look pretty damn nice!

I also saw them warming up and I was unimpressed. I did not get a great look, but it looks like any any other black jersey/pants on a team whoes colors do not include black. The only story here is the word "unconquered" on the leg. Without that, you really have a whole lotta nothing (and even that is pretty underwhelming).

Instead of printing "UNCONQUERED" on one of the pants' legs, these pieces of offal should have been branded with a word more apropos of this uniform design itself: "UNBEARABLE", "UNDESIRABLE", "UNEXCEPTIONAL", "UNFORTUNATE", "UNINSPIRED", "UNINTERESTING", "UNNECESSARY", "UNSIGHTLY", "UNSUITABLE", "UNTENABLE", "UNWARRANTED" or "UNWISE" would all have been better - and far more accurate - choices.

Yikes, take the 'Seminoles' and 'Unconquered' off the pants and FSU would look like a high school team. With all the crazy and unnecessary changes Nike has been making, I can only hope Oklahoma State doesn't go from looking like this:

I just need to ask a question, not defending Nike: whats wrong with pushing the boundaries of what we think football and sports unifroms should be? It seems like the majority of the opinions on these forums are stuck in a "golden era." I agree that tradition is fine, but what Nike does year in and year out is good for sports unis/logos as a whole.

Hey! We'll have none of this deviation from the groupthink here! :P

For the record, they're a bit "meh" and the "Unconquered" should be replaced with "unable to mount any sort of opposition" ^_^
