Pitt's uniforums

Recommended Posts

I was wondering how long it would take for this topic to appear. In their small defense, at least they seem to match a bit more than all gold uniforms do. Anyway, they probably won't win, but more power to WNY's own Derek Kinder, Pitt's best WR...

Pitt looks ridiculous, but I love the Louisville look with white over black. I know some think it's unnecessary, but I enjoy it.

Just when you think you've seen it all... This is a bad day for college football uniforms.

Saw them in person, thought they were actually pretty cool. (Thats probably just because I'm a Pitt fan...if I liked WVU I might thinnk differently)

Anyone know if these will be special one time jerseys or if they'll wear them once a year or if they're permanent?

Knowing that their coach is Dave Wannstedt (remember the Dolphins went all Aqua once?), this might not be a once-off.

I think they are going to be a once a year deal since the 70's throwback uniforms from last year where supposed to be yearly but they got to many people calling for the old colors and script Pitt to be brought back so the admin didnt want a Chargers like situation and ditched them. I think the all gold is ok much better than the all blue of a few years ago but the pants and helmet really need some stripes because as been said before they looked like Oscar's.

Yes, I am from Pittsburgh, but I am not a huge Pitt fan. That being said, I don't think these are too bad. Maybe we are just becoming used to teams using the all gold unis? I have to agree with the above post, at least all three elements (helmet, jersey, pants) all seem to match.

This may be the best all-gold uniform I've seen.

That said...it's still a bit too much gold.

I was at the game working and I saw the uni's up close. The jersey's were darker than the pants in the daytime, but by night time the gold's seemed to match up. I was surprised at the alternate, but I miss the blue pants and all blue uni's. I actually thought white pants with a modern stripe or plain white pants with the logo would look better. But I am just happy they did something new/ different than going with the same old same old.

To me, it was just too much gold. These could really look sharp with blue pants. On the whole though, Pitt has some fantastic unis. Cleaning up the formerly jagged numbers, and getting rid of that panther-ish thing made for great improvements. I also liked how Louisville wore red socks, so that they matched up with the widening sock stripe at the bottom of the pants.

Yeah those gold tops over blue pants would be sweet, and getting rid of that Panther that looked like a mountain was good. I wish they used the script Pitt though.

If there was ever a need for a team to ditch their current look and go back to an old style it's Pitt...the Marino-era uniforms were awesome, I loved the unique mustard color and lower case Pitt script.
