Not to me, but they may have finally gotten rid of the Bass boat finish.

Looks like Florida is "upgrading" to the lovely sweatstain templates.

Yet they won't fix the discordant striping on the orange jersey...

Helmet stripe - white touches blue, blue touches orange

Blue jersey and pants stripe - white touches blue, blue touches orange

White jersey and pants stripe - white touches blue, blue touches orange

Orange jersey pants - white touches blue, blue touches orange

Orange jersey stripe - white touches orange, orange touches blue

Discordant.

It would appear they have a new font, as well.

how is the striping on the orange discordant? and also, did you guys stop to think that that's florida's decision?

No one implied it was Nike's decision, either. Though they are correct this is the only piece in their uni set that does not follow the same striping protocol.

The Florida stripe thing doesn't bother me. A lot of classic uniforms have stripe patterns that are not completely consistent like Florida's regular blue and whites are. The uniform still looks great.

Seriously. No need to be so touchy.

Ugh...not a fan of the new numbers. I was really hoping they bring football up to date with the rest of their athletic identity package and make the number font similar to what's on the basketball uniforms (sans the black, of course).

And another thing to note: It looks like they changed their number font to the same font that's used to in counterfeit Tim Tebow jerseys. That overly-octagonal 5 is (I guess, "was") seen far too much at football games in years past.

It's very tiring to hear how "nike didn't fix this" or if they do "how dare they change that!" - it gets old, especially when it's not a decision that Nike makes. There are plenty of times when Nike designers want to fix something and are told "no".

And the new numbers are a non-oblique version of the basketball numbers, just for the record.

Woops my bad, then. I still think they'd look a lot better if they were oblique, though. But I'm just a big fan of consistency.

wow that number font looks terrible. The old numbers with the double outline not only matched the sleeve striping but worked a lot better.

From another board... Nevada's New Helmets

Gone are the days where a school would only have 2 or 3 uniforms options (Home, Away, Alt).

The double outline is still there, just isn't as pronounced (large) as before it looks like. On the blue jersey, you can still see the gap between the white numbers and the orange outline.

Those are just gorgeous. I really can't find anything wrong with these.

It may be Florida's decision, but the striping is garbage as well as the sweat stain jersey.
