Notre Dame going with names on the jerseys tonight. Any reason?

They usually do that for all bowl games.

Has there ever been a national championship where neither team has an actual helmet logo?

In the BCS era, this is the first time.

1. The flame helmet might be the worst thing ever worn in sports. Horrendous.

2.

Just a few combo's left for Oregon in this set. :rolleyes: Credit to the mass image goes to a Mr. Hershberger for taking my tracking images and composing all the possible combos. The red highlights are my addition to show which combinations have been worn.

The iridescent wings don't even appear to be included in that graphic, so it's missing 25 combos.

That's the second white jersey on the chart, since they wore that jersey as part of the all-white combo against USC.

Iridescent wings are the first one:

Gray wings are the second one:

I don't see why Oregon has a yellow outline on the numbers of the silver winged jersey, but not on the green winged jersey.

Also. Is Alabama's font in the end zone for tonight the same as Oklahoma's?

Iridescent wings is the road version of Rose Bowl Green Jersey, Gray Wings is the road version of the Fighting Ducks jersey. That's why.

It's just a generic font. I think it's the same font used for the Orange Bowl.

Anyone else notice how bad ND's numbers look now that those jerseys have been through the wash a few times.

If you put an Armani suit on a bum, he's still a bum. If you put Tim Tebow in an 18 Colts jersey, he's not a better quarterback. Conversely, if you put Walter Peyton in a Peyton Hillis Chiefs jersey, he'd still be the greatest ever. Clothes don't make the man.

I'm just saying that it LOOKS more professional to have a Speed Machine template than a Destroyer template, like it looks more professional to wear a suit, than a buttoned shirt.

I disagree fully. The previous Reebok NFL template, as you call it, the traditional football template which has been used for a very long time, LOOKS like a football uniform. The traditional template is the epitome of looking professional. It's the single-breasted suit compared to Nike's new templates, which look like Walmart track suits.

It looked like a middle school jersey.

NOB for the Irish in the title game. WOAH! When was the last time they did this?

Pretty darn close if it isn't.

No. It looks like a football jersey. Sure, those kids are wearing horrible representations of football jerseys, as pro jerseys didn't have giant holes in the mesh, or a v-neck which folded over at the collar, and they weren't single stitched at the seams, but they still tried to look like football uniforms and not Starter active-wear sold at Walmart. However, just as youth leagues have copied every other atrocious trend in uniforms, I'm sure 8-year-olds will be wearing jerseys with random nonfunctional seams 5 years from now.

Just because the jerseys were like that back in the day doesn't make them better or worse.

Today's uniforms have evolved with player input. Teams have had seamstresses altering their jerseys or years. I know they still get altered but I'm sure Nike has designed the jerseys to make them fit well out of the box.
