New Iowa/Purdue basketball jerseys

Recommended Posts

Iowa and Purdue are supposed to debut new SOD basketball uniforms this Saturday night in Iowa City. Has anyone seen these yet? I think it was brought up here a while ago and it is discussed on the Iowa basketball forum, but no pics.

While I am not a real fan of SOD, I do welcome the change. The thing about the current set that I never liked was the numbers. They always struck me as looking like those on a NASCAR hood. The one good thing about SOD is that the designs are for the most part simple, but the shorts look absolutely rediculous with tight jerseys.

I'm got an invite to the unveiling on a campus bookstore on the 16th (that night at midnight) and on the court against Michigan State on the 17th.

Is your favorite NFL player Chike Okeafor?

Well, it was a proud moment during the playoffs when Chike introduced himself as being from (instead of saying "Purdue"), "West Lafayette, Red Devils".

Somebody at Iowa leaked their new designs...here they are.

I, for one, like them overall...not a big fan of the non-matching fonts on the home and away jerseys, but LOVE the shorts design.

Most of my friends were Westsiders. I would like to imagine that I'm an honorary alum. Or not.

I don't think you'll find anyone that is happy they kept the NASCAR font.

We're actually River Rats.

You from Lafayette?

I like the shorts. I don't like the black numbers on a black jersey.

Ugh. Black on black numbers. Too hard to read and lacks pop.

What is up with those collars? And why Black on Black? And why is one wordmark straight across while the other is arched? And why is the number font italicized? Other than those questions, I think these are amazing.

I would agree with all of those questions, I think these would be great with regular numbers, IOWA straight across both, and without the black on black.

I hate it when they have the same color as the jersey as the main color of the number outlined by another color. Oh and what exactly are NASCAR fonts?!

Scorekeepers around the nation will start hating the Hawkeyes with that black-on-black crap. For all the NCAA regulations, I am surprised that contrasting numbers has never been instituted as a rule.

Black on black is very hard... I've had to do maroon on black before.

Color-on-color works if the outline is good and thick. Unfortunately, more often than not, that's not the case. I feel bad for anyone trying to cover K-State during the Huggy Bear era, with black on purple or purple on black with painfully thin outlines.

These new Iowa shorts though... very cool. Can't wait to see the Boilers.
