College Football 2013 Season

Recommended Posts

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.

That's not even an actual "school motto". It's the coach's personal motivational ploy; telling the team that they all need to jump in and help to row the boat.

Louisville vs Ohio is looking pretty good so far. Louisville's new number font is a huge upgrade and has both modern and classic traits. Ohio actually looks great as well.

is louisville's turf supposed to have brown spots?

It's just the turf turning brown from the heat.

Their version of FieldTurf has mostly cork top infill layer as opposed to ground up rubber. It is supposed to make the playing surface cooler than it was all-rubber.

Maryland was the first to have it last year.

Louisville, Arizona, Nebraska, and Tulsa have this version for the 2013 season.

texas with the numbers on helmet. me gusta

They shoulda moved the sleeve stripes slightly up and made them just a tad thicker. There's a lot of empty space now. Looks good though. Helmets look alright with the numbers up there, not better though.

Interesting about that turf u didn't know that.

Also both teams have stripes that cutoff in the back because if the shape of the revo speeds. Looks cool.

Yeah it looks like the cork just hasn't settled into the turf yet.

Ohio Bobcats have nice uniforms. However, I think white facemasks would make them even better.

Louisville is pulling off one of the few instances where same color jerseys and pants doesn't look so terrible. I quite like it a lot.

The new uniforms are a subtle upgrade over the previous.

May be a bit biased but CU might have the best and most underrated uniforms in Football.

They looked great. First time with the gold-white-gold combo since 2008.

That's not a difficult thing to accomplish.
