Appalachian Yellow Jerseys?

Recommended Posts

From the Media Guide:

ASU AND NIKE

Since 2007, Nike has been the official apparel and footwear provider for Appalachian football.

In addition to its state-of-the-art footwear, the Mountaineers? uniforms and off-field apparel and coaches? sideline wear are all produced

by Nike. For the second-straight year, Nike will provide ASU with an ?alternate? third uniform to be worn during one home game. This year?s

alternate uni features a gold jersey and will be worn by the Apps when they host North Carolina Central for homecoming on Oct. 10.

Beginning in 2009-10, all 20 of ASU?s varsity programs programs will make the transition to Nike footwear and apparel.

Oh my.

Half of the other teams with yellow or gold in their color scheme have done this. It's nothing too shocking.

Who was providing Appalachian's uniforms before Nike in 2007?

Depended on the sports. Football was Russell Athletic, Field Hockey has been Under Armour, and I've never got a good look at baseball/softball.

IIRC, the football jerseys before Nike were much better, unless I'm delusional.

Okay, like, what is REALLY going on right here? Purple(ish) helmets, blue(ish) shirts, BLACK pants?

My understanding is that the alt will be a yellow version of the current road jersey. I say that because it is easier to imagine the yellow and white being swapped. Black pants will most likely be used.

Fixed that.

Seriously, where does that team come up with solid black for their pants? (As that photo was from 2005, I'm hoping that style choice is no longer the case.)

Well apparently I was behind the times because photos were released of the thirds today:

I like it, but I don't like it as much as their Denver Gold-style throwbacks from last year.

I like it. The black-gold-black is exactly what I wore one game last year and it looks pretty sharp. And it looks like #5 is wearing a girdle with his pants a few inches above his knee and no knee pads.

Yeah, they were shot yesterday. Someone I know at App mentioned that to me.

I think I like them OK. However this better be all Nike has planned for us. I don't want App. St. to become the Oregon of the FCS. So far they have done us right though with these alts, and the very nice throwbacks they made for us last year. Nike does scare me though when they are in control of jersey design.

Not bad at all. Now, if they'd gone with gold pants as well like Southern Miss in last year's New Orleans Bowl, that would have been bad.

Agreed. All gold would have been terrible.
