College Football 2014 Season

Recommended Posts

A former BC player (I assume) was killed in the 9-11 attacks and he always wore a red bandanna.

It's in memory of Welles Crowther, BC lacrosse player, who helped lead approximately 20 people to safety in the attacks. Back in 2011, UCF students honored his memory when the team played BC on the eve of the 10th anniversary of 9/11/01.

Classy gesture by the UCF fans.

Also Florida will be wearing Orange this weekend5648655676_f697534432_z.jpg

I really like that look. I'm surprised they haven't used this look since they moved away from it in like 1990.
They have used this look. Have you been living under a rock?
Don't watch a lot of FL games out here on the West Coast. Plus, I'm not exactly the biggest Gator fan so I don't have the best memory when it comes to their uniforms.

They've tended to lose in the orange. Surprised they're wearing them again.

I hope they lose again in orange this weekend.

I realize that's just a mock up, but those adidas tire treads look absolutely hideous in certain color schemes. This is one of them.

I realize that's just a mock up, but those adidas tire treads look absolutely hideous ON ALL color schemes. This is one of them.

FTFY

The reasoning for BC's red bandanna deal didn't click until today. ESPN has a wonderful piece on Welles and his story. It gets me every time I watch it. Truly one of my favorite ESPN pieces.

Rumor of Texas Tech wearing throwbacks against Arkansas this upcoming weekend. Old SWC

Love them so much!!! :wub:

They look great. That logo looks so much better in simple red and white than it does with all the needless bevels.

Ugh I hate the orange jerseys. They're so committed to maintaining the blue-white-blue stripe on an orange background all across the uniform and then when they actually have an orange background they change the stripe. Drives me nuts.

Why did you have to post this horrible image? It just made me remember this:

It almost seems quaint that when these debuted, THIS was considered "edgy" and "innovative".

Oh how unprepared we were.

They hadn't even realized that school colors are just guidelines yet! We had BFBS back then, but still...

Marshall just announced they will be fixing their numbers after this week's game. The AD said they will get the white portion outlined in black. That doesn't make any sense to me, and doubt that will fix anything at all. Fans and especially media members can't stand the new numbers. I just think the AD misspoke or was misquoted on this matter.

UDub's look this weekend:

Interesting that "a player favorite" doesn't have any of the black elements. Also, lol @ "48 potential combinations". I really don't like this mix-and-matching trend; makes it so hard to forge an enduring identity

They're going white helmets vs. the white helmets of Illinois? Fail on the Huskies. Should've gone with gold.

I really liked them only because of Va Tech and Marcus Vick. Everybody was hoping he was the second coming of Mike Vick but that didnt pan out

Yeah, probably best to just let sleeping dogs lie.

To be worn tonight:

I'm watching this game right now and UNT is going full blown BFBS from head to toe. I'd like to see a team called the Mean Green wear a little more.... you know, green. It looks pretty good though.

North Texas doesn't look terrible, but man there's a lot of logos in that set...(helmet, shoulder caps, and the stamped stripe)

Illinois is wearing all white against Washington this weekend. I assumed we'd finally see the orange helmets and pants since Washington is going white/purple/white. It'll be a visually boring game.
