Alabama Blackout Uniforms

Alabama in one of those teams for which I think blackout uniforms will just never look good.

Your first iteration looks like Nebraska, and your second looks like Stanford.

Alabama is a team that would not look good in ANY other uniform. It's one of the few true untouchable classics.

I agree. If you're going to do a blackout on Alabama, I'd scrap the helmet numbers and replace them with the Script A logo.

Alabama without helmet numbers?! Well, it's a blackout uniform which is kind of crazy for the 'Tide anyway, so get funky with it. Slap the Elephant on the helmet, just do something to avoid the Stanford comparison.

^ Too much houndstooth on that uniform, also you really shouldn't take his concept and do that unless he ask you too, just start from scratch and show your concept in a different thread.

As an Alabama fan I've always wanted them to wear black uniforms as well. I actually did a photoshop of a black uniform on AJ McCarron that I'd like to see them wear, I may post a link to it if you'd like to see it.

As far as your concept goes, I think first version you did is better although I wouldn't pair a white helmet with black jerseys for Alabama, I think the crimson helmet works better because it makes it pop more. The pants are interesting, I actually like how it balances the colors. As far as the jersey goes, I'd change the font to a different block version, I don't like the sharp edge on the 5 for Bama. Secondly, if you could I'd add the circle A logo to the color or maybe you could add the logo to the sleeves.

Overall, I like your idea though and as a fellow Bama fan, I'd love to see them trot out in black jerseys for one game. I really like the jersey Nike has for sale other than the fact that the number is black, if it was white I would have bought that jersey and been crossing my fingers that they'd wear them one week.

Great concepts. The white helmet adds a nice touch.

Closest Alabama will get to a black uniform would be a jersey for basketball.

Not that Bryant, Jr would ever allow it, but just imagine how gaudy and interesting a houndstooth helmet/uniform would be (I'm aware that the school added subtle houndstooth accents in both a pro combat uniform and another tribute uniform in recent years).
