College Football 2014 Season

Recommended Posts

The navy blue unis look decent, I kinda like them (Navy jerseys with orange numerals look sharp IMO). The white jersey is okay but doesn't excite me. The gray jerseys is like trying to change a dirty diaper.....Ewwwww!!!

The numerals are horrible but pretty much what we expect from Nike designers who, I fear, have never taken a course or been properly trained in typography. F.

Thats something that absolutely puzzles me. For 2 years now Nike has been creating some of the worst number fonts in the history of fonts at both CFB and NFL level. Except for when they've gotten it right such as Cal, Georgia, and Illinois. FSU passable.

Most puzzling is not that these fonts are being made and passed through a group who need a type class to tighten up details but that, they're being made and passed through a group at Nike that have the worst taste in type that you will ever find in sports maybe save for Russels football team. And the clients are accepting them too. Its so hard to imagine multiple people looking at this stuff going "yea thats pretty good".

Sorry for the double post but per Twitter:

"Louisville signs 5-year, $40M deal w/@adidas, sources told @espn. Ranks among top 5 college apparel deals."

Generally I prefer Nike over Adidas, but I think for the most part Adidas has had the Cardinals looking pretty sharp. (Except for the sleeved basketball uni's)

For one, I'm glad Louisville stayed with Adidas as a flagship for the company. I also agree with your point there about the Cards looking sharp on both hardwood and gridiron. I love the football uniforms (Classic style uniform w/ modern font. Even monochrome looks good for them oddly ^_^ ) and the basketball set is very solid for the most part (sleeved, not so much).

You can expect that to be changing very soon.

@UofLFootball: New Adidas contract will outfit football program with five different uniforms, allowing dozen of different combinations, including helmets

Should've seen that coming... It wouldn't be nearly as bad if they would just fix the cut and template of the tech-fit uni.

I hope there are just minor changes to the uniform itself not a radical redesign with the uniform. This uniform hits a sweet spot for Louisville with a classic look with a modern touch. I wouldn't mind them wearing a black helmet that looks like the pic below (they actually did wear them from 1983-84) with a black uniform. Also with the metallic-like helmet they wore in the Russell Athletic Bowl just a few months ago because it is very tasteful compared to to other chrome helmets. For the uniforms, I could see them add a black, grey (I don't like since UK wears that color), and god forbid, a pink uniform. :evil:​ These are just my thoughts about the Louisville rebrand from a disgruntled Cardinals fan, but I wouldn't be surprised one bit if they go all-out for a modern look (which would look terrible in the process :cry: ).

Things I'm tired of:

  • Every freaking team having grey when there's no grey in their scheme.
  • Everyone having unnecessary chrome/matte
  • Stripes/patterns that are unrelated to the team
  • Funky number fonts
  • The people that believes that the this new steaming pile of crap is something that the majority will like.
  • Gradients

I swear our generation of football uniforms are screwed. And I'd just hate to see the future.

I like the way the guy with a matte helmet in his sig is tired of matte helmets.

@mcherrington22 From a source who has seen the new #UW jerseys: "They're as nice or nicer than #Oregon's." Will be released tomorrow at 11 a.m.

Let me translate that. "Our 47 combinations of uniforms will be loved by the same 17 year old mouth-breathers who love Oregon's."

I bet they have a dog fur pattern sublimated on the jersey and pants and the flywire collars actually mimic dog collars complete with tags and home phone numbers in case they run astray and can be returned back safely to the training facility.

The 17 year old drooling statement is all too true. Yesterday, I saw 4 football players literally "cyber drooling" over a picture of the new Syracuse uniforms. With that in mind, a page called "uniform porn" is who originally posted the picture on twitter causing them to do so. Ugh.

The one in my sig isn't State's matte helmet, the alternate with the white facemask is actually matte. And when I say tired of matte helmets, I meant that alot of teams try to pull of the matte helmet look and they do it wrong, that's what I'm really tired of.

I could not have said it better myself and I believe this is going to the worst set of the year. Hopefully I am wrong and Purple and Gold look great together.

Huskies new coach sure let Nike do whatever they wanted to Boise State when he coached there. Nike motto --> "You wanna get nuts? Come on, let's get nuts!"

The "U" by itself is dull and lackluster.

I can't help but see the Indiana IU helmet when I look at that one. I know it's not the same but that's what my mind registered at first glance.

Less than an hour away from the UW reveal.

I almost get a Nebraska feel with that Utah look. The white shell with red mask and single letter.
