College Football Uniforms 2011 SEASON


Brave-Bird 08

Recommended Posts

So we've seen Arizona State's Gold helmets in action. We've seen the black helmets in action. We've also seen the previously unannounced white helmets in action.

And today, we get our first look at the maroon helmets:

Before I had thought that it'd be interesting, and that it would look better because it is a school color. But now, I don't know. I mean these are just with the practice uniforms, but eh. They don't look like ASU. They look more like Texas A&M or Minnesota. I don't like it. The black facemask doesn't help it at all, either. I'd have to see it with the decal on it and with an actual full game uniform, (I have a horrible feeling that it's going to be all maroon helmet/jersey/pants) but for now, I don't like it one little bit.

How sure are you the maroon helmets have black facemasks? The center's facemask looks maroon. Most everyone on the team looks to have maroon facemasks. Maybe it's just my computer...?

Eh, looking at it again you could be right. Could be the lighting. Could be the difference in the paints. But it looks darker than the helmet, at least to me. I don't know.

Either way.

Does anybody know when Fresno is going to unveil their new uniforms?

Their coach said he's keeping them secret till the first game

Except that there is now a thread with official unveiling photos from Fresno. :lol:

Umm, okay. That's got to be one of the most pointless changes I've ever seen made to a football helmet. If they're going to tweak the striping like that, they may as well go ahead and put a logo on the side of the helmet too.

They look better than I thought they would. They weren't the real problem with that set though.

W(hy)TF would you mess with the helmet, Under Armour?!?!?

When I look just below the neck, it's actually tolerable. And I'm glad there is a white-white combo in there. But that helmet... those stripes... just horrendous.

If the pants stripes matched the helmet stripes, this would work. But now, it's disjointed. Not a BAD set by any means, but it could be a hell of a lot better.

So do they explain the "inspiration" for the design in the center stripe?

It's supposed to be a stained-glass window. They've incorporated designs like that into a lot of their new designs. Maryland has the turtle shell, Utah has a topographic map of Salt Lake City and I don't recall what Hawaii's is.

Hawaii has palm trees.

So are those numbers on the shoulders? If so they are tiny. That's bugging me.

I don't like them at all, the previous number font was great.

Also the pattern in the helmet stripe looks really bad, Under Armor is just tring to be like Nike with all these sublimated patterns. Maryland's turtle shell is the only one that looks good IMO even though their uniforms appear to be hot mess.
