That helmets one of the few things I don't like about Oregons uniforms. The all yellow looks nice tho.

My least favorite elements of Oregon's uniforms are their gray helmets and pants. At least they were smart not to use the gray pants today.
I don't mind the gray helmets, just the sonic book helmets.

The gray helmet is essentially the same thing as the Sonic Boom one. They added yellow to the initial gray/carbon fiber helmets to provide more contrast than the original chrome-only wings.

No the grey helmets are much better & different. The Sonic boom helmets are ugly because the wings sort of disapear in color, if the wings were yellow all the way through they would look better

See how in daylight you can barely see the end of the wings

Nevada changed the decals on their white helmets

Good move on Nevada's part. Silver on white...what were they thinking? That said, I think a silver helmet wouldn't be half bad.

i actually really like tulane's look. *ducks*

The look is okay, the removal of the blue is the issue

since they're called the green wave it makes sense to remove the blue.

Utah State going with Navy-White-White. They're going to look good as always

I know this is about a week old, but too bad they didn't show up against Tennessee. Their weakest look is any combo of just white and gray. But yea, they and Illinois are the 2 recent redesigns that have been phenominal. I wonder what they're wearing tonight?

I am an avowed Hokie H8r and I live in Charleston, home of the "Go Back To Ohio" movement, but damn if tOSU and VPISU isn't a nice, classic matchup this evening. Nike, this what you should be doing all the time!

This is the first I've seen that actually outlines the timetable for the FSU changes.

Haven't watched any of their game with all the other good games on, but the facemasks are already supposed to be adjusted for today's game.

The helmet gold will be changed to the proper shade for their next game on Sept 20 vs. Clemson.

No exact day, but at some point the away numbers will become garnet.

These changes make me very happy and I do think this could now become my favorite modern set. I thought the gold home numbers would bother me, but they don't. I will thoroughly like the away set with the new numbers and when combined with the gold pants. I would ditch the white pants. I'm not thrilled with the black set but I do like that alt helmet.

I honestly can't remember another example of a team making wholesale changes (or even tweaks) mid season like this. Can anyone think of another example?

I feel kinda bad for anyone who bought the road jersey with the gold numbers now.

I was extremely pissed earlier in the day because Kentucky introduced a new helmet (chrome logo & stripe) with a gray facemask, but after watching the game, I have to admit they looked decent. The only issue is the sweat panels on the Nike template and the purple tint in the helmet color:

Facemask still looks purple. Must not have made the switch yet.

They did say that no changes were going to be made for todays game.

The garnet is still all wrong and the Chief Osceola logo on the pants needs to be larger and on both sides. I don't mind the gold numbers on the home jersey, but I think the white with gold outline looked better. Not a fan of the crossed spears but love the update to the spear itself.

Also, the new tomahawk decals are WHITE. Perhaps they go back to the old tomahawks when they tweak the helmet color.

They could have taken last year's set, added the new logo to the pants and collar, put the new spears (without crossing them) on the helmet, updated the numbers in the same color format, and added the new trim. It wasn't that hard...

Actually, from the link in that post:

"Versus the Citadel, the facemask will change to one that more closely resembles the shade of Garnet used on the jerseys you will see today."

The helmet is clearly blue

It is blue, but it has a purple tint to it.During that game last weekend everyone sitting around me at Commonwealth Stadium mentioned that the metallic color looks purple when the sun hits is a certain way. In fact, I mentioned something to @UKAthletics about it and they said they have had quite a few compliants about it already.

Look at this years helmet:

Compared to last years helmet:

I think the reason the chrome works for UK is because there is sufficient contrast between that and the blue. Most chrome applications blend in and render the logo or stripe nearly invisible.

Ohio State is in their oversize striped rivalry sets and they are the old templates, not the new Mach Speed.

Also interesting that some schools are wearing the Mach Speeds as their home and road primary templates and yet Oregon, Nike's flagship, wears it only as an addition to their regular old template sets.

According the original report on the changes, they said no changes would be made for todays game. Here is the link, scrolll down to the last tweet.
