Dumbest. Jersey stripe. Ever.

I actually really REALLY like that design for the simple fact that it is so freakin' original. Plus, it actually flows with the rest of that uni. This is one Nike Combat uniform that successfully went outside the box.

It's not a Pro Combat uniform. It's a special commemorative uniform that LSU wore (Tulane also had a special uniform in that game) as part of a fundraiser in 2007 for victims of Hurricane Katrina.

Isn't that the Nike Combat logo on the "V" on their jersey collar?

Nope.

Nope, Pro Combats didn't come out until 2009, Kevin W. is correct. The special jerseys were worn by both Tulane and LSU (look at the shoulders of both teams - it's the same pelican logo just different colors) in a game played in the Superdome. I was at the game. Uniforms were auctioned off afterwards with proceeds going to Hurricane Katrina-related causes.

LSU wore Pro Combats once back in 2009 versus Arkansas:

LSU's Pro Combat is one of the best Nike's ever done, even if it did make LSU look Washington-esque due to the shade of gold used.

First thing I always do is look at the shoulders. If they have that stupid stitching design they're fake (Nike only did that for one year).

Nike only did that for one year

But Nike hasn't completely ditched it, as demonstrated by Wyoming's new uniforms.

I think they ditched it for Pro Combat, but other schools can still use it. I actually like it with certain uniforms (FSU for example).

Cool....not sure how I forgot that. Still love that jersey design though. Oddly original yet effective.

I really like how they matched the number font with the logo. I wish they used this number font with the new ProCombat unis, which I also like.

Kentucky:

Their new uniforms are the best in the SEC and among the best in all of college football.

Oregon State:

Very simple, but the color scheme and number font really pop.

Miami:

Really dug the split-color numbers. These would have been better without the stupid shoulder Flywire.

Orange yokes on the road were a great look.

I'm a sucker for serif numbers and patterned trim.

No, it was horrible and awkward. They should have put the pelican on the sleeve and kept the normal shoulder stripes.

This is where I strongly disagree. How the stripes are placed on this one gives the jersey depth....as if the full shoulder stripe still exists, but is underneath.

I totally agree. I was lucky enough to get one of the jerseys on sale - 50% off the summer after. A lot of the LSU fans down her complained about the shade of gold. I was at the game and LOVED the look in person. Plus, the shade of gold is an actually fairly accurate representation of what the Tigers wore in the 1940s.

Sorry, but I liked Air Force so much better when they had helmet stripes and uniforms were blue and silver instead of blue and black. My favorite look (other than last year's Thunderbirds tribute) was when they used Chargers-style shoulder bolts, though that look could use a few minor changes like bolts on the pants and tri-color (blue-white-sliver) instead of bi-color sleeve bolts (blue-white).
