What I call "cardinal and white confusion"


Recommended Posts

You mention Wisconsin's red being between OSU and IU but their Pantone colors are 200 and 201. Wisconsin's is 200. Maybe those have changed over the years though? But i dont recall the Badgers ever being much different.

I think their current unis are fine. The addition of red pants and a red helmet is good but to have 2 with alternate facemask colors is just stupid.

The real issue with all the red/white schools is they all look the same. 1 swatch difference dosent matter, and a different traditional stripe dosent matter. They are all very similar identities. The emphasis of red helps Wisconsin stand out a bit, the addition of black only pushes them closer to NCState. No problems are really solved.

My suggestion would be to either embrase a neutral color like black or gray and play it up more or insist on being a pure red/white team and never try to stand out. Just do red/white more consistantly than anyone else. IU used to do that but screwed it up last year
