Saturday Open Thread

Washington Syracuse Football

College football is in full swing this weekend, providing us visual feasts such as this unfortunate explosion of the color. We also got a chance to see how bad the “sports bra” uni’s look on Oregon State during a live game. —Vince

    I knew a syracuse picture would be here today.

    Looks like the orange in the jersey doesn’t match the orange in the pants. The lighting on that field is always bad too.

    Marquette is switching from Nike to Converse in a deal with Dwayne Wade’s (MU alum) brad. The article states they’ll have 4 new uniform sets next year, including one that incorporates some kind of old-school look.

    This really isn’t that big of a deal. Nike owns Converse, so Marquette really is not even switching companies. They’re just switching to a different division.

    I am from Syracuse and I HATE these uniforms, I dont understand why the new Athletic Director had to change our old uniforms. The Navy blue uni’s with the orange helmet and pants were just awesome. He has slowly been trying to change our uniforms into the USC style since he arrived from there. Why change a good thing when you got one.

  • pnasty | September 1, 2007 at 12:13 pm |

    those syracuse uniforms are horrible i know they are trying to look oldschool but what kills me the most is the white names just leave them off

  • Marc | September 1, 2007 at 12:15 pm |

    can anyone verify if that’s new pants piping on the Florida Gators jerseys….seems thicker

  • Stuby | September 1, 2007 at 12:16 pm |

    The white lettering for the names looked totally out of place on the Syracuse uni. Even worse than the Rams lettering used to.

    Watching Colorado – Colorado State. CU is in the all-black version of their new Nike set.. one cool thing – the wordmark is gold on the front, and the nameplate lettering is also gold, creating a bit of a Steelers contrast effect.. The nameplate letters are italicized but (properly) centered to the jersey rather than centered to the number. Very clean look actually.

    Colorado State is in all-white, and without nameplates, which I’m fairly sure is a new development.

    I kinda wish Converse would make an update of the All-Stars. A modern basketball shoe. I wear black high-tops, and I always get comments from people saying they wore them to play basketball back in the day.

    I can’t even imagine how horrid that must have been on the ankles.

    Watching ECU-Va Tech… The entire VT offensive line is wearing matching orange knee braces. Is this a common thing that I’ve just never noticed?

  • Stormwater | September 1, 2007 at 1:26 pm |

    The UW-Syracuse game was playing on a TV behind me last night at a deli. I glanced over my shoulder to see the score & I did a double-take looking at the Syracuse uniforms. I couldn’t believe it. Not even a white outline around the numbers. Hideous beyond belief.

    I live in Portland so I’m used to the Ducks’ ridiculous uniforms. Looks like the Beavers are trying to outdo them with those really peculiar jerseys. Sports bras, indeed.

    How do these things get approved?

    I like the Syracuse jerseys. Everbody seems to be giving them a hard time, but the only thing I’d change is get the names off the back of the jerseys and go with white pants. But all in all I think they’re pretty cool. And I’m a traditionalist on jerseys.

    What I didn’t like about the ‘Cuse uni’s was that the oranges didn’t seem to match. The helmets/jerseys/field logo all seemed a slightly different shade of bruised orange…

    They did try to modernize the All-Star about 10 years ago. I had a pair.

  • Brad | September 1, 2007 at 2:40 pm |

    Syracuse wore orange jerseys and pants for the first time since Nov. 6, 2004 at home vs. Pittsburgh, a 38-31 double overtime Orange win. The team also wore orange jerseys and pants in a 41-7 win over Temple Nov. 8, 2003. The origin of the idea for the orange jerseys, along with the block “S” and “NY” helmet logos came from athletic director Dr. Daryl Gross.

  • Kris McInnis | September 1, 2007 at 2:49 pm |

    Florida’s jersey looks worse off than they usually do. You have a Nike logo on one side, the logo on the collar, the gator logo on the other side with the SEC 75th patch ON TOP of it. They look like a NASCAR bumper.

    Nice gesture in the UEFA Supercup between Sevilla and AC Milan on Friday. Players from bothclubs wore “PUERTA” on their jerseys, in addition to the standard black armbands, in honor of Antonio Puerta, the Sevilla player who collapsed on the field and died of heart failure last week: photo

    Ack! The Badgers are wearing all-red (red unis & red pants). Now I’m rooting for a Wazzu blowout today, for the same bad luck effect as the Badgers had with those “W” shoulder unis from the 90’s (worn in the game they got blown-out by Colorado).

    interesting to note that the yankees have a knee-high mandate in all their minor leagues, but only kennedy chose to keep his pants at the correct height. joba chamberlain and phil hughes have opted for the sunday slacks look.. shame!

  • Mark Graban | September 1, 2007 at 4:39 pm |

    I know they’re purple, so Paul hates them, but Northwestern has tweaked our uniforms this year. Basic template is the same, but the numbers have gone from gaudy and hard to read to very traditional block letters, white with a black outline on the purple jersey. The numbers harken back to the 1995 Rose Bowl-era black jerseys, which many fans (including myself) long for.

    The gaudy (and different) numbers 2003-2005)

    The new uniform numbers (not a great shot in this bunch)

    The classic rose bowl jersey with true “Northwestern stripes” as they are called (after Northwestern University).

    p.s. Wisconsin looks horrible in all red, same with Ill-annoy in all orange. Same applies to Northwestern when we go all purple.

    [quote comment=”139676″][quote comment=”139617″]I vaguely remember this discussion last football season, but humor me. What the heck are the Georgia Tech colors anyway? For the longest time they wore dark blue and gold, now it looks like black and gold. You can’t be both, right?[/quote]

    Stuby, Tech wears Navy blue and gold. It’s hard to tell when the navy is just trim but trust me the numbers are navy.[/quote]

    Why doesn’t their basketball team wear navy on the road? I know they wear gold, but it is such a light gold it looks more like a home jersey.

    UTenn’s helmet stripe is about twice as thick this year.

  • DCM | September 1, 2007 at 9:08 pm |

    Georgia Tech’s official colors are Old Gold and White, though over the years the gold has been several different shades…I liked last year’s mustard throwbacks. They’ve worn navy blue or black over the years, including last postseason. I like the shiney gold lame as well, which debuted back in the 80’s during basketball glory days. The basketball team has worn navy from time to time…like during thier Final Four run with Kenny Anderson in the early 90’s.

    Notice today RB Choice had a different style “2” on his jersey than the rest of the team…another dumb Tech move, like the abundance of patches on the jersey front. But a great win against those great ND uni’s!

    No, they looked silly. That wraparound shoulder piping is just as rigoddamnediculous as Oregon State’s bras, Wisonconsin’s bloody pants and Colorado’s stupid pants.[/quote]

    This is kind of funny, because the App. State jerseys are the template Oregon State used last year.

    Having just graduated from OSU, I am pretty darn ashamed of the new unis. I thought last year’s were decent, aside from the black on black look.

    In Paul’s latest espn.com article, I noticed that Miami’s weirdo jersey looks like the same template as OSU’s, just with some different choices as to where the colors change. Is this accurate?

    Damn kids and their lousy taste in fashion. As a Badger alum who was looking forward to a BCS season, this development has soured things tremendously. The solid color uni is the teal of the ’00s. Blech!

    Granted, I’m watching the Cal v. Tennessee game at work on a 52″ plasma in a somewhat dark room, but the Cal nameplates appear to be a different shade of yellow than the jersey. Are they actually darker? Or is it some effect from the layering of the yellow?

    And, yes, I love my job.

    3 things

    1-Love that college football is back

    3-Tired of seeing at the US Open two guys who wear Nike wear the exact same shirts. It’s happened a few times, includeding tonight’s Blake-Soupek match – tight blue sleveless numbers with diagonal grey and white stripes. ANNOYING!!!!

    It may be un-Uni Watch approved, but all-purple seems to work, I saw a high school game today, and the winning team wore basically that outfit (just substitute Tornado for Raiders on the front), and they rolled, 42-21.

  • JM Rempt | September 1, 2007 at 11:42 pm |

    Watching USC-Idaho, and I noticed that the Trojans seem to have one of the more uncluttered back-of-helmet landscapes in the NCAA right now. Just an American flag decal and the Danelo memorial decal-that;s it, no numbers, no manufacturer’s warning, no NCAA logo. Its refreshing.

    I noticed that too, but in my non-HD-ness, I wasn’t sure if that was the case. Notre Dame’s jersey and Cal’s helmets both look black on my 32 inch SD’er.

  • Brandon T. | September 2, 2007 at 12:18 am |

    Wisconsin successfully ruined their beautiful ensemble with red pants. I was hoping Washington State would win so Wisconsin would feel jinxed and ditch the threads…

    Also of note, Tennessee returned to their pre-2005 helmet stripe (as someone mentioned earlier), which I think looks good. The Vols are the only team I know of with that thick of a stripe and for some reason it works for them.

    I just got back from the game, and you couldn’t even tell K-State had that little stripe. Shoulder pads totally obscure it, but maybe it looked different on television.

    The local station that broadcasts the Padres games said it was the shortest name in MLB history. Hu wore #60 when he came in to play shortstop late in the game.

    So if the station was correct, we’ve had the longest and shortest last name’s in MLB debut this year.

    There is no such thing as ‘too nitpicky’ on this site.

    Is ‘Hu’ actually that guy’s surname, or did they screw his name up like they did with Chan Ho Park?

    There was something else out of the ordinary at last night’s no-no by Clay Buckholz. Fellow rookie Jacoby Elsbury was wearing one red sleve on his left arm, with no red sleve adorning the right. I belive Dustin Pedroia was doing the same.

    Even as a Wyomingite, I have to agree. I am not a fan of the yellow, and I know they are pushing the “celebrating the past” thing, but I liked the prairie gold better. Plus, the field still has the lighter shade of brown and the prairie gold so that looks mismatched too. Let’s hope it’s just a one year deal and not a permanent change.

    As a fan of both Syracuse football and the color orange, I can tell you that these unis did not look good at all. Orange, in my opinion, is an accent color. You cannot have an entire uniform composed of orange! Bring back the blue, guys!

    UW looks o.k., i think, and thanks to Paul for letting us Dawgs enjoy our purple gear in Uniwatch. doubt he’ll be as solicitous this weekend when the Huskies host Boise in their purple sweaters (and gold pants/helmets), but at least we don’t have to endure the blue field.

    Syracuse’s unis are freaking awesome, SU alums~! just because McNabb isn’t there doesn’t mean they aren’t the Orangemen
