College Football 2012 Season

Recommended Posts

Going through all the swatches they have released, it's looking like they'll be going blue tops/blue pants in this game. Gold numbers on front, and the new one released today looks to me like the side of the sleeve, with Adidas' new favorite two stripe shoulder design. It's hard to tell though.

You're almost wrong across the board. Tim, you've also regressed back into the box.

You keep saying sh¡t like this and I keep wavering between not believing you and fearing what you're hinting at. If I'm that far off, I can't imagine that these unis are going to be well received or reviewed.

I'll be shocked if ND is in blue pants. I still think they are trying to screw with people. I still think their pants will be gold. I hope I'm not wrong.

CMU looks awesome. Their BFBS is especially cool. I am intimidated just looking at it. Imagine how terrified the players on Michigan State will be when they have to line up against that! :shocked: They might not even make it out there to face them.

And the part on where their underarms say "Fire up" and "Chips" just really makes me want to get so excited and pumped up.

WOW!!!!

!!!!

Well, whatever the case, from the four pictures of the uniforms we've seen (one was of the gloves) I'm pretty damn sure I got these elements right:

True. Funny how that works. I have no idea how these will be received. I'd guess, as with every uniform that comes out, some will love them, some will hate them and some will be shocked, but speaking purely from a design perspective, they really are nice. It should be noted that I am very difficult to please in that regard, but all the elements work extremely well together (and no, I had no hand in designing them, so don't call me biased). Even if the visual style or theme doesn't really float your boat, these uniforms are unique, they are original and they are not afraid to own that theme, for which they (hopefully) will be commended whether they are liked or disliked.

I mean, David Carson made some butt-ugly designs in his day, but he is lauded (and deservedly so) for not being afraid to shake the box in a knowledgable way.

I just hope adidas doesn't put stripes down the shoulders like they did with TAMU and Miss State. I'll be interested at seeing these tough, especially the helmets. Also wtf at the black uniforms by CMU

He published an entire article in dingbat. He's awful (I'm a fan of modernism and art deco, not bullsh¡t, haha). He is entertaining in Helvetica, though...

I never liked his work, either, but his work is important in the history and evolution of graphic design. He worked in a very experimental, confident manner, and basically said, "I know why you guys do it this way, but there's no reason you can't do it this way every now and then and see where it takes you." There is a very innovative facet of design today that is thriving and even steering the trends. It might not exist as it does without people like David Carson.

This comment really scares me...I'm bracing myself for monochrome blue.

With "updates" to Eastern Michigan, Bowling Green, CMU and UMass, the MAC easily has the worst uniforms in the country. Add those four with uniforms like Kent State, Buffalo, Toledo, and now even Ohio. The only two teams that really have decent uniforms are Miami and Western Michigan.

Eh... Central's not that bad. The template might be generic, but I don't think it looks "outdated" to anyone but us logo nerds and it utilizes their colors very well. I could do without the BFBS uniform though.

Kent State looks fine. The template is old but not overpiped. Plain gold and white pants. I'd love a return to some lighting bolts but that's probably not ever happening anytime soon. Especially with Nike.
