UCONN football jerseys

Recommended Posts

Watching UCONN / PITT today, I'm thinking about that arched name across the front of the jerseys. Front arches are everywhere in Baseball, Basketball (unfortunately, NHL these days), but I can't think of another football example. Obviously the jersey cut doesn't lend itself to this, but strangely, I really like it. Can anybody think of other examples?

Also, UCONN has a pretty nice set. Are there silver pants? Cuz that would be a giant improvement over the lame mono-look.

Yep, there are silver pants. They look good too, although we've used them only for the first 3 home games this year. Another interesting fact: the script on the front is screen printed on, but the numbers are all tackle twill.

Said it before, and I'll say it again - IMO, UCONN has the best head-to-toe uniform in college football. Every aspect of it is perfect or near-perfect. It is an awesome example of a contemporary but classic uniform.

Way back in the day, Alabama A&M also used that radial arch for the wordmark on their football uniforms. Currently, they are still doing it...but with a much smaller vertically arched wordmark.

And yeah...Connecticut also gets my vote for one of college football's best looks.

Fully Agreed.

Watching UCONN, from a uniform aspect, is a beautiful thing.

Thats pretty sharp actually. I'm not even kldding I really like those. How long was this used?

Through most of the 1960s starting in about 1963 when Bill Yoeman arrived and into the early 1970s.
