    Last season, Cal busted out the yellow jerseys against Oregon in Berkeley. The game is in Eugene this year (home of the swoosh) and I am anticipating it to be perhaps the ugliest Nike-world uniform matchup in history.

    I’ve always wondered what the hell a Bearcat is. Apparently it is something like a wolverine that lives in trees in Asia.

    I don’t think Cincinnati has always known what their mascot is supposed to be.

    To their credit, later versions look more like the tree-dwelling animal.

    The white helmets and pants on LSU just don’t look right.

    And given that we’ve seen a few teams wearing gold on the road, you could potentially have Oregon wearing green and Cal wearing gold at Eugene. It could get really ugly.

    LSU uniforms are all about hurricane relief. Details were posted here earlier on this site.

    Watching the LSU-Tulane game now, and they’re showing a highlight reel of Bob Toledo, Tulane’s coach who was at UCLA. When showing highlights of a UCLA-Oregon game, the Ducks are wearing some actual uniforms that, well, look like football uniforms. Seems like 50 years ago.

    The Bearcats are named after a former student there. They’re named after a person, not the animal. The cheerleading squad gave him the nickname decades ago, while trying to drown out the other team’s cheerleaders. I can’t recall the whole story, but, hey, this is the internets! I’m sure someone knows.

    Continuing from last night:

    [quote comment=”149507″][quote comment=”149487″]
    Wait…the Jets are bland but the Colts aren’t? Neither team has a third color, both have over-the-shoulder UCLA stripes, white helmets, standard numerals, TV numbers on the sleeves, flanking stripes on the pants… The only difference, really, is that the Jets have opposite-color sleeves and flanking stripes on the helmet instead of the single stripe; other than that, the helmet decals which are purely a matter of taste, and the base color (green instead of blue), they’re practically the exact same uniform.[/quote]

    The Colts’ logo is like the Yankees—a classic that needs no updating. The jets logo looks very boring—the word Jets superimposed over NY. I suppose some diehards like them because Joe Namath wore them, but I liked the eighties look (the word jets slanted to have an aeronautical feel) much better. Besides, the shoulders on the sixties jets jerseys looks way too cluttered.[/quote]

    I think they would look better if they moved the stripes further down, and had a bit less of the opposite color on the sleeve. One way to do this would be to reverse the stripe sequence of the inserts, i.e., a green-white-green insert on the green jersey and vice-versa. If you look at the uniform from ’98, the shoulder stripes were a bit farther apart, more diagonal than vertical as they are now.

    I’m sorry, but I can’t see how the Jets logo is “boring” next to the Colts’, and not “classic” like same. It incorporates three different elements (the “NY,” the “JETS,” and the little football) quite nicely, I think. I prefer the original football-shaped version (a fourth element) from the Namath years, but this is much preferable to the slanted, modernistic “JETS” they wore from ’78-97. That wasn’t so much a logo as it was the name of the team emblazoned on the side of the helmet, a design treatment I’ve never really liked no matter how it’s rendered.

    They’re not brutal, but probably won’t finish higher than third to fifth in the Big East, which is stacked again. The way Louisville is playing, they may fall out of the top echelon, for this year anyway.

    I’m going to have to agree. This logo vs this logo? The word “Jets” in italics is not a logo; it’s the word “Jets” in italics. Having to describe it and the little plane above the wordmark as “aeronautical” is more of a condemnation than a support. The current logo is more of an actual design, not just some wonky looking script. Especially when you compare it to what the Giants had at the time. Weak at best.

    The other link for the old Jets logo doesn’t work. it looks like this.

    Happens all the time in NY on their networks. YES and SNY always employ former Yankees/Mets to go along with their play-by-play guys. On national schedules, they give their best announcers their best games, and the rest fill in accordingly. They have A-teams and B-Teams. Joe Buck and Troy Aikman, who I am convinced hate the Giants, have called the last two Giants games. Not because they’re Giant haters or supporters, but because those Giant games probably got one of the best ratings nationally and you have your #1 broadcast team do a game with that big an audience. Like McCarver doing the Phils today. Fox’s best baseball analyst on their most important game. The only reason Buck isn’t there is probably because he’s trying to find something else wrong with the Giants.

    As you can see, Cal has a lot of duplicate numbers. On the kickoff a few minutes ago, a #14 made the tackle, but it was really Jahvid Best, who wears #4.

    The announcers said that he slips the #14 jersey on for special teams because the other #4 is also on the field. Never heard of that before.

    Mr. Lukas’ criteria for advertisements: don’t interrupt any text (Jersey Joe’s doesn’t) and no purple allowed (check). Pretty reasonable, and it’s not a random company, but something subject-appropriate, so no offense taken on my part. I am concerned that if every ad is placed at the top, then I’ll have to scroll down just to see “Uni Watch.” That is when I think some re-arranging would be in order.

    I don’t really know… but what I do know is that people and networks tend to follow money.

  • My Name is Not Earl | September 29, 2007 at 8:40 pm |

    Cal has been especially cognizant of the duplicate numbers thing since they got penalized for having two guys with the same number on the field in their season opener.

    With all of Notre Dame’s problems, at least they seem to be playing USC pretty tough early. . . . What do you mean that’s not Notre Dame? Either way, at least Washington and USC are looking sharp out there to offset the goings-on in Oregon and Minnesota.

    Auburn looks fairly good in its road whites, as usual. Why is it that Under Armour couldn’t do as good a job with South Carolina’s uniforms as it did with Auburn’s?

Many Rangers asked for much bigger sizes of the new tops. While that defeats the purpose of the form fit that the NHL supposedly is seeking, I’ve yet to hear a good reason why anybody would want hockey players to look like football players (or, worse, like video hockey players) in the first place”

    BTW, notice the “Minnesota” on the front of the jersey. Word is Tim Brewster was planning to add “Minnesota” to the jerseys in a couple years, but apparently has to wait until Nike “allows” him to. I’m guessing no such wait applies for alternate jerseys, especially since this is the Gophers’ first alternate, so Brewster was able to add “Minnesota” to that jersey this year. Consider tonight’s text addition a preview of the future Gophers uniform.

    To make that a bit more clear, Brewster apparently wanted to add “Minnesota” to all the jerseys immediately, but had to wait due to Nike. In a couple years the regular home & road jerseys (the maroon & white ones) will likely be sporting the text, probably just in time for the move to the new stadium.

    (2) Check out the names below the numbers on the back of the Bearcats’ uniforms. Seems only fitting, seeing how the Reds were the first team to do the numbers-above-name thing.

    Not sure exactly what is is, but if you go to the niketeam.com custom football uniform designer its one of the standard numeral font choices

    [quote comment=”149906″][quote comment=”149852″]Obviously Kris McInnis is watching the Auburn game. For some reason, Quentin Groves’ name plate is deformed. It says ‘Q. GROVES’ but oddly, the Q and the period are slimmer than his last name. Looks kind of like this: Q. GROVES[/quote]
    There were several Auburn players that had a different looking font/spacing/kerning than everyone else.[/quote]

    Yeah. Motley, the holder’s, nameplate looked like it was completely different material from the other jerseys. It almost looked like it was printed on vinyl or something. Motley was one of the players that shares a number (#20 with Patrick Lee), so it might have been a spare jersey with a name tacked on. Really odd, but maybe understandable considering it’s 5 weeks in and this is the first time they’ve worn road whites. Either way, I could really give a shit what they’re wearing right now. War Eagle!

    [quote comment=”149897″][quote comment=”149896″][quote comment=”149880″]Bielema said during his radio show this past Thursday that the decision was all his. According to Bret, Coach Alvarez had no say in the uniform decision. He wanted the team to look more intimidating when they played Iowa last Saturday. He also said that the red pants are not permantly retired.[/quote]

    Sounds like the first time a team chose to be more intimidating by wearing white instead of color.[/quote]

    No, they wore the all-red against Iowa, and white pants against Michigan State. Red is a color typically associated with aggression, so that makes sense.[/quote]

    The Badgers wore the white pants against Iowa. It’s Bielema’s alma mater and was a night game, that’s why he made the change at that time. A lot of people were saying they looked like a high school team with the red on red, that’s why they made the “more intimidating look” in the Big Ten opener against Iowa

    I’ve never really thought the combo of red and white was “intimidating” at all. Don’t teams normally go with black uniforms for the intimidation factor?
