EDIT: Found my answer. Here's the new uniforms as well.

I still maintain that you can't beat a gloss black helmet with a matte one. From Classy to amateur.

I agree. What's weird (to me) is that the majority of matte helmet designs we've seen seem to be black, but IMO black is BY FAR the worst color to use for matte helmets. Every matte helmet I've seen in some color other than black has been much nicer looking than any matte black helmet. I guess the problem is the combination of one dumbass-kewl reaction (" It's matte! That's sick!!) with another dumbass-kewl reaction ("It's black! That's sick!!) is too much for these schools to pass up.

No gold pants? Ugh.

I'm starting to miss piping. This is how plain and typical college uniforms are getting.

Any chance of FSU wearing either white or garnet pants in game this year? Outside of the srping game, they haven't worn either for at least a year, probably 2.

Jimbo loves him the gold pants. And it's just another reason of why I love the man.

Let me preface it with I have no inside knowledge of the program anymore but I think we won't necessarily see either this season. The last time I remember FSU wearing the white pants was the game that was the nail in Bowden's coffin aka USF 09.

New Adidas Crazyquick cleats for Nebraska these are for the UCLA Game.

Since I was critical of the last personalized shoe, I'll say this is exactly how it should be done.

If we didn't change the helmets, I'd love this change. The grays actually work -- they are being auctioned off after they are worn....I might be making a bid

I would keep the secondary logo on the sleeves with the A helmets, and the A on the sleeves with the secondary logo helmets.

I get not likening matte helmets, I don't think they all look good, but I don't understand how they look amateur. Not just Andy others have said that too...

It's not like youth teams have matte helmets everywhere while college and pros are always candy coated. If anything in other industries matte can be considered more refined and higher end. Not always but you can now get matte black watches, car finishes, etc. and you'll typically pay a premium.

Again, totally understand and agree it can look dumb, but I don't buy the amateur statement.

"Amateur" may not be the best word to use, but in my opinion it makes the helmets look unfinished. Like someone forgot to add the last coat of paint/gloss/what have you.

As for matte looking higher end, sorry I don't buy that. Not as far as football is concerned. Just because something (a finish) evokes a certain look (high end) in one industry (watches) doesn't mean that will carry into another industry (football). For the longest time standard gloss has been the "the" look when it comes to what a football helmet "should" look like. When I see a matte helmet I don't think "oh wow, that's high end." I think "that looks off."

For me, the only place a matte finish looks proper and professional, are the insides of fenderwells of a vehicle and the rubber hoses used for vehicles and appliances. Matte finishes always look like the person is cheap and can't afford a nice gloss finish. I don't care if you want a matte finish look, it just looks cheap and looks like you can't afford to look good and don't care to. That's just me.

Eh, I like matte helmets. I like gloss helmets. I like 'em all. I just don't like crappy designs.

However some are just unnecessary. I don't see how going to matte helmets helps either Louisville or Appalachian State even in the recruiting dept. But oh I would love to hear the justification for it because I'm sure it costs some money to make these minimal changes.
