Retro college Football unis

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone! I love this website and just recently found the forums section and have found a lot of interesting threads. However, I was unable to find a thread of retro college football uniforms (late 60s/70s/80s/90s/ even early 2000s) I love making retro uniforms on NCAA Teambuilder, but it is so hard to find retro uniforms unless you search for a specific player from that team in a given era. For example, if I want a 1984 maryland uniform, I need to look up "Boomer Esiason maryland football" in google, and even then its usually a crap shoot. But here is a chance to put some uniforms that you grew up loving in this thread

So, for the greater good of the whole comunity, lets just make a thread completely devoted to college football retro uniforms!

Please include the year that the uniform was worn! good luck everyone! hope this projhect is a success!

I'll start us off!

1980s pittsburgh panthers (i never knew they had a blue helmet)

Thast actually not a blue helmet, its their usual gold helmet but they used blue pride stickers on the shell and gold stickers on the helmet stripe making the helmet look reversed.

I really miss the Rainbow Warriors. I used to love their sets (though I really like what they use now too). Also thought it was cool how they used the rainbow, a unique feature in sports uniform history. Anyone know if Hawaii has any plans for Rainbow throwbacks?

Just using old unis to practice in, thats all. Still wish they wore those Nike unis, liked them a lot better than any of the UA ones, plus it instantly reminds me of Brennan and Bess.

I miss Hawaii's rainbows, too. Not just because their current look is so generic dark/tuff, and not just because the rainbow motif plus kelly green looked so awesome, but because of the embarassingly childish reason for dumping the rainbows.

Hawaii Rainbow Warriors, 1980s

Nothing strikes fear into the heart of BYU more than those green Hawaii uniforms and the sight of Marshall Faulk's San Diego State:

In reply to SJAnfield,

this is from a spring game last year i think.

Those were from Coach McMackin's first year as head coach about 3 or 4 years ago. Not sure what the school has in store for the athletic branding/naming of the teams (Rainbows, Rainbow Warriors, Rainbow Wahine, Warriors). The new AD, Ben Jay, was hoping to look into unifying the athletic teams to minimize confusion with their names. There was a buzz going on last year when Norm Chow was hired as the new football coach and called the team the Rainbow Warriors.

Sorry for the misinformation guys! I didnt really know when they were from, but it didnt seem like 3 years ago already lol. (I guess i dont get a whole lot of hawaii info while living here in PA) But anyway, I would love to see a return as the Rainbow warriors. I never thought it was feminine or trivial, and by changing the name to get rid of "rainbow" thats when it almost began to be associated with being offensive IMO.

anyhoo... Here is my retro uni of the morning before my fist class!

I've always been a sucker for yellow and blue or yellow and black. I love the simple pants striping. I wish the Rams would go to a 2 color Navy and YELLOW uniform like this and lose white on the home uniforms.

Im just going off of cleats and gloves being worn, but that picture has to be at least 4 years old....Even if they still wore the nike uniforms for practice, I couldn't see them not having Under Armour cleats and gloves
