Finally found some pictures of the Jayhawks. Bob Davis just informed us they are honoring the 1961 team (that ended 3rd in the Big 8, and won the Bluebonnet Bowl against Rice, woo).

What's with the numbers on Michigans helmets?

Sounds like they're going to keep them there for the rest of the season... I'm not really a fan of them.

Indiana University is wearing its third different helmet of the season. Oops. I see now the IU is pink for breast cancer. Perhaps a sticker over the white letters? I miss the white stripes they wore on their helmets the last few years. I thought they went well with the pant stripes.

It looks like a regular 2 color decal to me. I kinda like 'em. Not too flashy. However, the players wearing pink sleeves clash like hell with their crimson uniforms. Eesh.

Not the biggest fan of the matte look in general, but Air Force did it up right by applying it head-to-toe, rather than mixing matte pants with a sparkly or color-changing-flake helmet. Not a bad look. Oh, and it's gray.

Why is everyone having an issue with sand tan? Do ABUs and ACUs really look like they have grey in them to the average Joe? I'm very curious.

The Air Force uni's today were 100% sand tan and 0% grey.

From one angle I thought they were grey, then from other angles they looked sand grey, but either way, I think the look is great and they should do it more often.

Here is a picture of Sand Tan:

Now everyone can decide which color scheme they actually used based on this picture:

From the same article.

Air Force did well to keep their new uniforms a secret – coach Troy Calhoun said there was nothing planned, and nobody else blabbed either. But this morning when Air Force came out for warmups they did so in sharp alternate uniforms – gray jerseys with a matching helmet, and blue pants. The look is a preview for next year, when Air Force will add gray jerseys and blue pants for a few selected games.

Of course, it's possible that the team, the people that write about the team, and everybody else on the :censored:ing planet is wrong, and Wikipedia Boy is right.

I'm no ColorWerx, but a Google Image search for "sand tan" gave me these:

I can kinda see it in the second swatch, but you ask 100 people what color that second swatch is, and I think a vast majority will tell you gray. And considering that Air Force always wears blue and silver/gray anyway, well, it's gray.
