College Football 2014 Season

Recommended Posts

Any idea when Oregon plans to unveil their full set for 2014/2015? I assume the black and white jersey's shown at the end of last year will be worn but have to think there will be at least 1 green one and likely a yellow one too

I thought they were adding those jerseys to the rotation, and not getting a new set for at least another year.

From what the university has said, the uniforms unveiled last season were just going to be additions to the rotation, with the possibility of replacing the black and one of the whites full-time. Also, a new full set is on the horizon since this would be the 3rd year of the current set and that's typically when they changed now.

It looks like Penn State is adding numbers to it's helmets. I just hope there isn't a oversized logo on the other side.

Well that was fast. Utah getting it's scheduled new football uniforms, plus ditching their 2014 bball uni's too.

"The Under Armour uniforms will look "completely different." They’ll have less striping and no more of the topographical lines that were used to emphasize Utah’s mountain landscape."

No word yet on whether the Utes will wear the white helmet that appeared during spring training.

Also of note, "The U. may have recently distanced itself from the drum and feather, but a recently signed memorandum of understanding between the U. and the Ute Indian Tribe Business Committee could well pave the way for more liberal use of the drum and feather." Before the school and the tribe signed their new accord it was also revealed that the tribe wants the football team to wear a Ute war bonnet helmet. I guess we're gonna find out how much sway the tribe ended up having.

I saw a tweet from a reputable source saying just coach decoration, not for the field. I wish I could find the tweet but I can not...

Sounds like backtracking to me. Most likely a mockup and this was the department leaking the image to gauge fan reaction. Too bad. They should just go for it.

Just to give an idea of when we might see the expanded set, the current uniforms were unveiled at the end of August back in 2012. http://nikeinc.com/nike-football/news/nike-highlights-new-integrated-uniform-system-for-oregon-ducks-season

No. There is no need to just 'go for it'. Especially if alumni were opposed to the change.

The paterno era is over. They have a history of numbers on the helmet. They have a new coach. A mild visual refresh could do this program some good.

It looks like Illinois is going to have silver uniforms this year. The biggest Illini merchandise store in Champaign tweeted this picture of the replica jerseys. Also, no navy jerseys are available to buy this year, so I'm assuming the rumors about the team not getting the blue jerseys and pants until next year are true.

Alumni...alumni??? Alumni don't matter. College football is all about recruits!! :)

IMO, I do like the numbers on the helmet, but I doubt they actually use them during the season.

The gray is really lame. Navy should have been the first things produced.

Are you really suggesting that a school use its colors over a bland gray? You have much to learn about college football, my friend.

blasphemy .. gray is a school color of illinois as it has been used as a facemask color before and should take precedent over navy on all occasions....how dare you suggest they wear navy!

I feel like if Penn State was gonna change things up they would've done it a couple years ago after the scandal punishments were handed down. But at this point, I don't see the fan base being in favor of a change in tradition.

Bill O'Brien did put names on the back of the jerseys...now that he's coaching in the NFL, I wouldn't be shocked if Penn State made another small change.

The lines on the mountains are kinda strange. I hope the Utes stick with the white facemask, but something about this tells me they're going black facemask.

Color me a fan of Utah.

I don't care what anyone says. It's different, and in school colors.

That's more than what we've cried for for a few years now, right?

Trust me, the die hard loyalists don't want any change. They hated the idea of even having names on the back of the jersey, like that was some kind of blasphemy. I'm an alum and I wouldn't mind the numbers on there one bit.
