Could someone explain why Georgia is able to have fully-colored collars WITH Flywire while NFL teams who wanted Flywire were given those ugly toilet-seat collars?

Great question. Now if Nike only made the Texans collar as thin as this one it would have been a winner.

The collars for Georgia look exactly the same, size wise as the Texans.

And FWIW, I've never had a problem with the collars in the NFL. That's my unpopular opinion.

I suppose you are right after seeing this picture below, based on the picture a few pages back it looked thinner. By the way, what does FWIW stand for?

optical illusion. dark colors (black) make objects appear smaller. light colors (red on blue like HOU) makes objects appear larger

Just looked through the latest Nike catalog and there are quite a few teams showing TBD for jerseys. These are the ones we have not yet seen-

* Arizona

* Boise State

* UConn

* UNC

* Cal

* West Virginia

Interesting. Had not heard of a few of these teams updating. Where did you find the catalog?

I know for a fact that Boise has a new wordmark, since they've worn it already:

Looks like the one they have now, just tweaked a little bit

Yeah it essentially looks the same, neither an upgrade or a downgrade. Simply altered a tad.

Arizona is expected to unveil them next week close to the spring game, RichRod said nothing drastic, no copper jersey, 4 helmets still. People in the no said the numbers will be different probably a gradient or design and the pant striping might be different.

Gradients are banned but I'd expect .(hope) Arizona might go old school. That would be awesome if they went back to their Desert Swarm look. Also the copper helmet matched up with copper pants and blue or red shirts would look pretty good.

I expect ASU to be updating their uniforms as well, unless that disaster with the Disney mascot changed things.

I dont know how legit these are but one is posted by an assistant coach for Appalachian and the other is from the beginning of a highlight video.

I believe these are press conference/recruiting helmets. I read somewhere that the Cornpipe Yosef won't be used anymore on an official basis and App will be sporting new uniforms in the fall.

According to UNC's EQ Twitter, a new "alternate" uniform will be worn in the second half of the Heel's spring game.

The Nike rep in the UGA presentation wouldn't comment on who the other 3 schools refreshing their identities this year are. I believe I can say Oregon State (definitely) and Cal are 2 of the 3 from the way Nike and the institutions have pushed the process and the resulting designs. Oregon State pumped out fresh uniforms for the entire athletic department with new logos. While Cal hasn't unveiled theirs, that is definitely the same vibe I've gotten from them. This page describes their unveil as a "streamlined visual identity" for the entire program. Will launch on April 10th.

Baylor is tough to say. Their unis were definitely updated, but they didn't roll out any new logos, wordmarks, or graphics. I think they only qualify as simply moving onto their next design. I wouldn't be surprised if there is another team sitting out there who is the 3rd team.

I suspect the reason Baylor didn't get all that other stuff is because they are not a Nike athletic department. Football and WBB use Nike. MBB uses adidas. Baseball uses UA. Golf, I think uses PING, etc...

Changing uniforms at halftime of a spring game? Why not just wear them for the whole game?

I think ASU will just shift to solid numbers, now that gradient numbers are banned.

I understood that the new "traditional" unis would be on display all day during the spring game, and the "alternate" uni would be presented during halftime, not worn at any point during the game. We'll see in a week & a half I guess.
