College Football Uniforms 2010-2011

Recommended Posts

It might be a tad early, but spring practice last year was when I caught the first uniform change: Tech's older gold helmet shells...which turned up to be a slight uniform change. So I figure it's time to start a thread to start posting new uniforms.

Georgia State will embark on it's first season of football. Spring practice gave us a look at their helmet shells. Kentucky blue with white facemasks...but no metallic.

(interesting helmet-facemask)

It will be interesting to see what the Panthers look like, because red and black always sneak into their logos...and sometimes sneak into their uniforms. They can't quite decide what their colors are...but from the looks of spring practice--the shirts and pants--everything looks blue and white.

All I've heard is speculation that FSU will be getting new uniforms. The most consistent rumor is the current uniform design on the pro-combat template.

I'm pretty sure that's just a really :censored:ty replica.

Yeah, that's the same crappy replica they've been selling ever since Adidas took over at UM.

Colorado State will be getting new uniforms as well.

Rams get football uniform makeover

By Natalie Meisler

Denver Post

Just got off the phone with Steve Fairchild about Colorado State?s new football uniforms.

?Russell is going to do something specifically for CSU and no other school will have them,? Fairchild said. The helmets will remain unchanged, but the long-time Nike footwear switches to custom-made shoes by Under Armour, the branding du jour for athletes.

There is a chance, he said, of following the national trend and breaking out retro uniforms like the basketball team did recently. That?s right, a color scheme with Aggies orange and green (or pumpkin and alfalfa in the official school announcements).

You love it or hate. There?s no in between. If I thought the orange basketball jerseys looked bad in person, they were worse when I caught a replay on The Mtn. I am in the minority on this issue.

Fairchild said the Rams will not follow the all-black trend. It has nothing to do with black being arch-rival Colorado?s color. He hadn?t thought about it until the subject was raised.

Players and staff will have input and the final design won?t be unveiled until before the season. Fairchild is undecided whether to introduce them in a press conference (or fashion show) setting.

The big priority now is interviewing candidates for the staff vacancy. He won?t give any hints but interviews are ongoing.

UCF is officially a Nike school, which means new uniforms to be unveiled later this summer. Michigan State is darkening the green, possibly updating uniforms. Iowa has introduced a one-time throwback with yellow helmets.

Rumors: Arizona (keeping/modifying white helmets?), North Carolina (charcoal helmet?), Clemson (more traditional top to match last year's pants), Virginia Tech (New throwback-inspired tops with UCLA/Indy Colts-like shoulder stripes).

So basically, what VT's been wearing for the past few years? (Not the modern duds, of course)

They could just use USC's template. The pants wouldn't need to change if they modified teh Missouri or Arizona style.

Word on the street is Syracuse is going pro combat with their jerseys. The helmets have been the same in spring practice so far, however.

Arizona is getting new ones, somebody on another board that it something like what The U wore in the bowl game.

NEW UNIS

Stoops said Arizona is tweaking its uniforms for next season, and that he wouldn’t rule out using the white helmets, which the Wildcats wore for the first team in his tenure during the Holiday Bowl loss at Nebraska.

“We’re going to have a bunch of different looks that we will be able to accessorize our players with,” Stoops said. “That is kind of the fad we’re in right now with kids and players. We’re trying to keep up with it.

“If it makes them happy, then I’m happy. I really don’t care what we wear.”

Stoops said the uniforms would be “more toward our old look and a little more traditional but still modern” … whatever that means.

At least the colors will stay the same.

How about the Jamie Morris/Harbaugh era jerseys when Harbaugh takes over in 2011 (RichieRod is a sitting duck). I wouldn't be suprised if new AD David Brandon does void the current deal with Adidas and go back to Nike. trust me, the SWOOSH works like magic.

Local sports talk radio shows have indicated that UVA will be getting new uniforms next year. One thing they've released so far is the elimination of, what they call, the "goat horns" on the helmet. They're referring to the center stripes like the ones the Tennessee Titans have. One of my friends said that he heard that their new coach Mike London is not a fan of the V with sabres and has all intentions of bringing the block V back as the primary logo. I'm not sure I buy that and even if it's true, UVA is just now getting around to standardizing all their sports with that logo so I doubt a change that significant would be approved. Should be interesting.

There is absolutely zero chance that happens. The deal with adidas is worth far more in both money and product than what Nike offered. Not to mention the huge financial penalty that is in the contract if it is violated.

Yep. Unfortunately they'll stick with Adidas... which sucks for those of us that buy a lot of UM apparel.

And the newer UM jersey has curved stripes under the arms that wrap up the back.

Staying that way, as far as I know. Though I kind of like the plain 3-striped practice jerseys more than these.

In addition to the possibility of gray helmets and god-only-knows what other looniness for the opening game against LSU, there are also rumblings that UNC will be getting new primary uniforms as well.

Yeah, I really don't see any way that the administration would let that fly.
