College Football 2012 Season

Recommended Posts

Call me crazy but a chrome pink/chrome silver winged helmet would look pretty sick. Match it with maybe a white jersey with shiny pink wings and numbers and that would probably look sick.

Call me out for pfps or not using school colors r doing it for attention if you want but I think Oregon would make pink look better than anyone in the country.

Except it would run into the same problem the NFL is. It would be a blatantly obvious attempt by Oregon to bring attention to themselves. "Look at us! We care! Pay attention to us!"

Well of the gear was auctioned off and proceeds went to research meaning it was more than just a thought, I'd have no problem with it and pink and white uniforms would be pretty cool to see for one game.

Meanwhile the replicas will see a "percentage" of the sales go to some charity to be named later.

I'm guessing they're the white helmets we haven't worn yet. I'm gonna guess we're going White Yellow White or White Yellow Yellow.

Flannel huh? I'll wait to see it on the field. Gramps should get back to the crops.

I really doubt we'll match white with yellow at home. Doesn't mean those aren't the white helmets though.

Perhaps more proof of a potential throwback uni

I saw that, too, but unless there's more to it than that I'm not sure sure. This looks like an ad for 2013 ticket sales done in sepia/gold tones, not an announcement about new uniforms being worn this weekend. Not saying they won't wear them; just that I don't think this confirms they will.

I'm not liking how teams are mixing and matching decals and stripes, as Va gas done here. It just makes everything a crap-shoot from week to week. I never have any expectations for uniform consistency anymore.

yeah I pretty much threw the towel in last year on trying to assume any consistency among the vast majority of cfb...seems like the only schools that you can really count on for a consistent look (excluding the occasional throwback or alt) are the traditional blue chip programs but that is even becoming more of a challenge

Just PLEASE don't be the pink helmets.

I completely agree with BB08. I hate the way teams now swap decals, facemask colors, etc. In addition to any alternate helmets a team might have, this now provides them with limitless new styles. It might be "cool" for recruits, but come on, you're completely watering down your identity and entirely lack a primary helmet when you start doing that. At least Oregon's mallard green lid was viewed as the primary before they completed dropped the "O" helmets. TCU's normal purple was nice (and so was the new finish to it, a very slight update). But when you're debuting new finishes, new stripes which come and go from week to week, new logo applications, swapping masks out, etc, you have no consistency or even a single lid to be able to say "this is the helmet that primarily represents our program".

I really like that update to the UVa helmet. They need to stick to that version from now on when they wear the orange. The stripeless version with the blue mask looked too loud and vibrant. The navy stripe and gray mask soften it quite nicely. It looks kinda retro/throwback inspired now. I like!

Last thing, I sure hope Oregon doesn't mix and match yellow and white. That would be such a weak color combo. This gives you an idea of how those colors mix:

Yeah same, first thing I noticed. His skin has the game gold effect which gives it away to me. Also the number would have an outline of some sort wouldn't it? But I don't know why they would do this if they werent going to wear them... at some point. Maybe its an addition to the set in 2013. I donno.
