Recommended Posts

Since nobody's mentioned it yet. But FSU is in gold-garnet-gold. While the Canes are in a monochrome all white.

What template does FSU wear? Their nameplates and back numerals seem a lot 'lower' than at other schools (apologies if that doesn't make sense).

And there are a TON of Jr., II, etc. in this game. I believe there's even Jimmy 'Gaines V'.

FSU wears the older "Destroyer" template

Below are some of the looks from some random games today:

Vols-Tigers game looks great

Vols white-white-orange

Tigers black-black-yellow

I thought that was hands down the worst looking game I've seen all season. Those colors are fine separately but it looked like a mess on the field together.

(BTW, I realize the Mean Green came from "Mean Joe" Green, but still. Even if the team name is also for a person, or something else, if a team name is a color (Cleveland BROWNS, Stanford CARDINAL, etc.) and that color becomes a primary for the team...shouldn't the only jerseys they wear be white, that color that is in the name, and perhaps an alt of another color in their scheme? (For example, if Stanford were Cardinal Red and Gold, I could see a gold alt, but not a black one.)

Am I all alone here? This is just a pet peeve.

It's the other way around. "Mean" Joe Greene got HIS nickname, because of the "Mean Green" nickname at then-NTSU.

And UNT (my alma mater FWIW) has TWO official nicknames - "Eagles" and "Mean Green".

Lurk long enough and Donovan's gonna quote you...and teach you something you didn't know. I always thought NTSU was the Eagles and "Mean Joe" was so dominant that he changed the perception of the team. Much like you can call the Broncos the "Fightin' Peytons" right now--only it stuck. I never knew HE got the nickname there. I also didn't remember you went to North Texas--when I was at Middle Tennessee (and shortly before I enrolled) we used to love to hate to face you. It never really became a rivalry, because one team would steamroll the other for multiple years...then it would reverse. Both programs went through a LOT of pain at some point in the 00's.

And I still stand by my statement from that post--if they had just put "Eagles" on the jersey instead of "Mean Green" I might not have been bothered as much. It wasn't a bad look, but don't label a black jersey as green.

FWIW, I love that train-track striping for Purdue. I'm surprised they didn't try that earlier.

Also, Middle Tennessee went White (without stars and stripes)/White/Blue, while UAB went White/Green/Green.

Kinda like Purdue train track helmet stripe. Was hoping the old UFL team the Las Vegas Locomotives would pull off that look.

Fort Riley day in Manhattan yesterday. Fort Riley (home of 1st Infantry Division) is only a few miles from the Little Apple, and K-State is really good about maintaining ties with the Army units.

I have found the best looking Russell uniform of 2013...Alabama State's set is beautiful tonight against Kentucky.

Here is a video from the game.

I wish Vegas Gold would be outlawed in all sports and teams had to use this shade of gold or maybe even a slightly darker shade (like the gold originally used by the Saints). It looks so much better.

Florida Atlantic replaced player last names with "FAU" for their game against Tulane after their head coach and defensive coordinator both resigned on Wednesday (each admitted illegal drug use)

Why I am starting to hate college football...

it took me a good solid 3-4 min to figure out who this red team was... Dumb. And if I didn't know the B1G so well it probably would have taken me longer.
