College Football 2014 Season

Recommended Posts

ESPN is using a yellow Oregon helmet and a copper Arizona helmet as a screen shot when going to commercials. Meanwhile the teams are wearing a black/pink helmet and an all-red helmet. Makes sense.

I actually liked Oregon's black and pink look. I prefer the bright yellow and apple green but for a gimmick this was a decent.

Speaking of gimmicks, this one is awful. UVA will be wearing this with all white unis for their home game this weekend against Pitt.

Harvard runningback wears a Ricky Watters neck roll. Whens the last time you saw that.

Dear Florida State, Notre Dame, and others. Put your khakis away, and get these pants. If Harvard can do it, surely the big programs can too.

I do see a swoosh, so it can be done for nike schools

Idk about y'all, but IMO you can't pull off chrome,matte, pink, and modern, as well as Oregon has tonight. Whilst maintaining recognizable.

Actually it's hard to pull off any of those things, but Oregons managed to do it.

If I owned a Lingerie Football Team, I'd have these Ducks unis as my home unis. Dazzling.

The problem with Lingerie Football League is you wouldn't see much of that jersey...well I guess really it's a good thing. :)

It can, but not with their newest technology for pants. And it would look weird with the new shirts, too, which are matte.

Indiana will be joining the October pink parade as they've done the last three years. They'll wear this with the standard red jersey and white pants against North Texas tomorrow.

what does that mean specifically? are the new pants made of a different material than the old?

Kentucky will be wearing black over black for their game against South Carolina tomorrow night. Rumors are, the chrome helmet on the left will be worn. The logo is a waste of a decal, because it won't be visible from more than a few feet away...

It was fortunate the Ducks were doing the whole pink-breast cancer thing last night.

Because Tony Washington looked like a total boob when he handed the game to Arizona.

Yes. in the mid 2000's nike and other uniform labels started to introduce their own proprietary fabrics into football uniforms. Until then they all basically sourced their textiles from the contract uniform manufacturers like wilson/ripon etc. These fabrics were not proprietary and started to make their way into football in the mid-late 80's.

Before then (70's) it was basically 100% polyester. Then they moved to the fabric typically referred to as dazzle which was primarily nylon/spandex (may have still had some poly). Whatever nylon that was used is what brought the sheen/dazzle to uniforms. The one drawback of this fabric is that it does not breathe or wick moisture and is considered somewhat heavy by today's standards.

Once nike/ua/adi decided to jump into the uniform construction game (as opposed to using 3rd party uniforms and slapping a logo on them) they basically took their existing moisture wicking and breathable fabrics (e.g. dri fit) and applied those fabrics to their own templates. The major drawbacks of these fabrics is that they are basically matte (less nylon I believe and more poly) and less durable because the material is thinner. Players have a strong preference to the new fabrics because they are light and comfortable which I believe is why so many teams have abandoned the metallic/shiny finish with the exception being those teams that are absolutely committed to aesthetics (raiders).

This is a high level breakdown. There are probably some details missing but this is pretty much the explanation as to why the older fabrics are still around but less and less prevalent.

Mississippi State will wear their throwbacks again this weekend against Texas A&M. Not surprising after they beat LSU wearing them.

wish adidas would have special jerseys for this game only. Showcase 2 big Adidas schools..like snowbowl2012. That would be fun again.

Good luck tomorrow

The white outline all around the Arizona logo leaves only one helmet to be the right one to use every game...the white helmet...anything else looks amauter

Unless they go with the white helmet, and replace the decal with a silver one. Just nonsense.

Keep the logo red and blue, and add stripes. Maybe add stripes to all the helmets (except the copper one), and then swap the facemasks for some contrasting color. The red helmets especially are too red.

Arizona's white helmet with stripes is definitely the best, and it'd be better if they had the navy facemask like the good ol' days. The red helmet, without a metallic finish, looks gaudy and cheap.

I'm pretty sick and tired of these b.s. "celebration penalties"...
