Referees Won't Allow Gamecock Wounded Warrior Unis on Field

Yeah, I know its your team but I get why the refs have an issue with it. The pattern is too much and makes them unreadable. Now if it was a screen of it (lighter pattern/less dense), those issues would be gone.

They're wearing the same pants and helmet, looks weird with the plain home jersey.

I think the helmet and pants looks okay with their standard black jersey. Maybe the NCAA needs to have a better eye health care plan for the old seniors to be able to see.

How can Under Armour allow something like this to happen then?

I think it's a problem this board has noted many times before, in various forms - some designers, manufacturers, and clients fail to realize that what may look good on a screen doesn't always translate well to fabric. And while the 1s pictured above obviously wouldn't have a legibility issue, I could see there being some problems discerning 3s, 6s, 8s, 9s, and 0s, especially given the way today's jerseys tend to scrunch up and distort.

Somewhat related: Why has Carolina paired their proprietary, cutting-edge uniform design with the crappiest stock numeral font available?

What a failure by Under Armour. I become less and less happy with their uniforms and fan products as time goes.

I guess I just have a hard time seeing why these uniforms are THAT difficult to read in comparison to some of the stuff that has seen the field from Nike the past couple of years.

It's actually supposed to be a more custom font, ITC Machine. They athletic program has adopted it for all sports.

I'm glad the refs stepped in. Numbers must be readable to the officials and the folks in the pressbox.

It's time the NCAA showed some guts and put an end to this uniform madness. The NCAA needs to better define what is and isn't acceptable in all uniforms.

Careful. If you get your wish, we might end up with all 121 teams in FBS having uniforms designed to resemble Alabama or Penn State.

Not really. It'd be really boring and we wouldn't have anything to talk/bitch about uniform-wise.

Also, we should be thankful for the ProCombat line. It may be hit-or-miss but it's bringing uniform design to the mainstream. People are actually starting to notice and care about uniforms.
