College Football 2013 Season

Recommended Posts

Thank you to those of you who confirmed the new Florida number font. That was driving me bonkers! Maybe I don't like change, but I hate the new numbers. The old style just seemed more...classy.

Also, no changes to the MTSU Blue Raiders for week one, as they went silver/blue/white. Nothing fancy, just clean and consistent.

My alma mater North Texas wore their previously-unveiled mish-mash of fauxback elements:

Great to see the old Flying Worm logo again - even though they never wore it on White helmets back in the day.

I was really hoping for full-on Apple Green and Forest Green throwbacks.

I apologize for destroying any retinas, but here's Miami (OH) in action vs. Marshall.

That's funny because while this page was loading my eyes started to feel irritated now I know why!

Miami (OH) easily has the worst unis in FBS.

Watching Nicholls State vs. Oregon was painful too. Nicholls State might have the worst uniforms in all of American football.

Unless I was looking at something else, I'd say they were just plain

Nicholls not Miami. The Minnesota double M jerseys aee 100 x better/ understated than that

Those look nice!

Anyone know why some of TAMU's players had name plates, but others did not?

Passing around a jersey in honor of Polo Manukainiu, who died in a car wreck. Different player will wear it every week

When I first saw them on here I thought Western Kentucky's new unis were awful; especially in comparison to their old traditional ones. But upon seeing them on TV last night my opinion has completely changed. I really, really liked them.

Silver helmets, red jerseys with one of the worst/lamest fonts on a football jersey, and charcoal pants. Just looked really bad.

I thought those were rutgers at first is the only knock i can give it, and i had to really look for the logo to tell what team it was

Isn't that the Chargers' number font?

Not quite. It's the same font as Georgia Tech's bubble wrap numbers last year, and probably an Arena team or two. Because Russell Athletic.

I'm a big Cal fan, but uni wise, I'd have to give the nod to NW. If you remove all yellow from the collar of the Cal unis, it would improve the look a lot.

I don't like when both sides of the helmet have different logos. Especially when one side has the players number and the font of the helmet numbers don't match the font of the jersey number.

I understand the meaning behind Western Michigans "Row the Boat" motto, but it doesn't seem to fit a team nicknamed the Broncos. Also, why do they have the oar stickers on their helmets during game one. Seems odd.

The school is known as Western Michigan, and Michigan's western border is an eponymous Great Lake... I'd say "Row The Boat" fits them more than, say, Auburn's "War Eagle" chant fits a team known as the Tigers.

Thoughts from yesterday:

I don't think LSU has solved their jersey striping problem.

I don't know what VA Tech is thinking some time.

I don't care for piping on football uniforms.

Florida A&M may have taken the cake. Seriously this program has had bad uniforms throughout most of it's existence. I can only remember a brief period in the early 2000's when they had a decent look. Once the modern era of piping & panels came in to play FAMU has remained a consistent tacky mess.
