Here’s a question: If an Oklahoma State football player in an orange uniform falls into a pylon, does anybody notice?

Another big day in college football otherwise, with Oregon going all white, Pitt going all blue, West Virginia going with gold tops, and Notre Dame giving a uni shout-out to Billy Beane.

More tomorrow obviously, but for the moment, just enjoy the vision of football in the snow in October. —Vince

    I’m more of a new school guy. I like Oklahoma’s jersy. But I think it would look better if the pants were white.

    How long until we see color-coordinated wrist coaches (the wristbands with the built in playsheet holder). I’ve only seen white and black — that Oklahoma State guy should have worn an orange one around his belt to match :)

    Those WVU uniforms are very close to Cal’s version.

    Anybody know if the striping forming sort of a ‘W’ on WVU’s jersey was intentional?

    Maybe it’s early, but to me it looks like the QB in the snow photo has a prosthetic arm.

    “Snow” games are a lot more fun to watch on TV than in person… at least, if you’re doing the radio broadcast of the game! The darnedest weather I ever saw during my tenure at Arkansas State came in a playoff game at Nevada… sunny in the 1st quarter, light rain in the 2nd, sleet in the 3rd, and snow in the 4th!

    It was the only time I had to use my binoculars just to see the players! And 20 minutes after the game ended, it was sunny again! (If’n my color-guy partner hadn’t been a good ol’ tee-totallin’ Southern Baptist boy, I’m sure our Arkansas listeners would’ve assumed I was drunk, stoned, or crazy!) (big grin)

    i thought Oregon’s whites were incredibly cool, despite the continued fall from former series dominance the game represented for the Huskies.

    but what’s up with the green “O” on the ball? does the visiting team bring the footballs for an away game, or is there also a “W” on the other side of that rock? you’d think it would just be a Pac-10 logo.

  • Dan | October 21, 2007 at 11:26 am |

    Every single team listed on today’s thread looked great. Oklahoma State and West Virginia looked superb. My only complaint was Oregon should have worn green or black pants, but the all white was still not bad.

    Every school provides their own game balls. When the home team is on the field, they use home team balls. When the visiting team is on the field, they use the visiting teams balls. Most D-1 schools have their logo stamped onto their footballs. Every quarterback is different, which is why both teams are allowed to use their own balls so they can “work” the ball (via red clay, brushing the leather, etc) to a grip that the QB is comfortable with.

    In high school and college, teams bring and use their own balls (plural because each team uses several). In the NFL, they all use the same balls, supplied by the league.

    Fausto Carmona apparently forgot to remove the “Diamond Collection” tag that comes on authentic MLB jerseys: http://mlb.mlb.com/i.... It’s surprising that players’ jerseys even come with merchandising tags, or that Carmona would have a new jersey at this point in the year.

I’m wondering if its a superstition thing. the other night after he gave up a homerun (i think? or at least a run) he tucked his tag in. at least thats what it looked like on tv.

    Snow games can be fun. We had one here in Utah two weeks ago (Utah St. @ Utah). And it was a little hard to see the pass plays. Even my 8 year old thought it was worth it to stay. Oh – and Utah St. had some totally boss cold weather dusters.

    Purple is totally cool color and K-State gets points for wearing it in an understated way. At least as far as football goes. Now those basketball threads from last year? That’s another story.

  • Paul | October 21, 2007 at 2:11 pm |

    Hey Vince,
    I was expecting more praise for ND throwbacks on Saturday. How many times have teams screwed up trying to copy an old look? The only thing different from the 1977 version is the Adidas logo and black shoes instead of white. (That would really make the A’s a good comparison.) How many teams wear striped socks in college football?

  • Sam M | October 21, 2007 at 2:11 pm |

    couple things from the Pats/Fins game.

    Adeilus (sp?) Thomas wearing one red and one navy glove. red on his right and navy on his left.

    Also, if i’m not mistaken, i believe marty booker is wearing navy-accented cleats, which strikes me as odd. They look to be a model of nikes from last year or the year before, i have seen other guys wearing them this year though, strikes me as odd, perhaps even an NFL uni violation for him to not have the same orange accents as everyone else.

    I agree, and I am not normally a fan of the Ducks jerseys (or the Ducks themselves, for that matter–I’m a born-and-bred OSU guy).

    I actually think the best thing about the whites was that the diamond plate was minimized (it should be eliminated all together) and that there was no neon yellow. Either way, the whites look better than anything Oregon State has worn (or will wear) this year; that’s for sure.

    I have long given K-State a lot of credit for not giving in to the temptation of stripeless purple pants, as so many other purple-wearing teams have gone. K-States home and aways have long been sharp, and this year’s updates are great too.

    The fine line between clever and stupid:
    Discussing sports uniforms / Discussing replica uniforms.

    Anyone who takes pictures of men in bars so they can post them online to show other men is maybe taking a pastime just a little to far.

    Can you imagine the exchange after the jersey wearer catches some random guy snapping a photo?

    “No… you see.. it’s cool. It’s just that… you’re wearing a Keyshawn Johnson jersey and there’s a blog about guys wearing Keyshawn Johnson jerseys, well, not just Keyshawn Johnson jerseys… but anyway, I was going to post your photo on there because yours is from when… eh… umm… please just beat me up.

    Yeah, but at least the blue uni numbers were outlined in orange. There’s literally NO blue on the Giants’ white jerseys.

    During today’s Washington-Arizona game, the Cards played 2 offensive linemen with the same surname, “Brown”. At times, Elton Brown (G – #61) and Levi Brown (OT – #75) were on the field at the same time, but both only had “Brown” on their nameplate. (sorry, no pix)

    I thought there was an exception to the NFL rule that, if the two players could never be confused for each other, (like a kicker and defensive tackle) then they didn’t require the first initial (or full firstname). But this is two offensive linemen, who could possibly lineup side by side.

    From where I sit at Mile High it is usually difficult to see the Broncos orange stripe on their socks. So, Brandon Marshall really stood out today. Another view. While looking for a picture, I noticed Cecil Sapp’s socks also had slightly more orange than normal. I like it.

    Also, the window of the Denver Convention Center (two full city blocks of glass rising 150 feet into the air) are lit up in purple this week. Beautiful!

    my opinions: rams in all white looks great for a few reasons – it’s fresh and new, it’s not a TON of white and, hence, boring. rather, there’s plenty of color in there to break the monotony. also, the plain jane gold pants are getting old to me. add some stripes to them and they’d look good. i love how they’ve gone with blue pants, too. their color scheme lends itself to many good looks.

    on the other hand, the seahawks always going monochrome blue or white is just plain a tired look to me. the color scheme is a dull blue and then a neon-ish green, and it just says “radioactive” to me, which isn’t a good look when it comes to uniforms. they should mix in the silver pants they had before the uni change.

  • sebastian | October 22, 2007 at 2:30 am |

    The all-white Rams look weird in all-white because they wear it so rarely. If we were used to it, I don’t think it would be so shocking.

    Personally, I still lament the Rams in blue and yellow, circa 1984 for example. Great colours, and the name lettering in white was a great look on home jerseys.

    [quote comment=”159397″]my opinions: rams in all white looks great for a few reasons – it’s fresh and new, it’s not a TON of white and, hence, boring. rather, there’s plenty of color in there to break the monotony. also, the plain jane gold pants are getting old to me. add some stripes to them and they’d look good. i love how they’ve gone with blue pants, too. their color scheme lends itself to many good looks.

    on the other hand, the seahawks always going monochrome blue or white is just plain a tired look to me. the color scheme is a dull blue and then a neon-ish green, and it just says “radioactive” to me, which isn’t a good look when it comes to uniforms. they should mix in the silver pants they had before the uni change.[/quote]

    as a lifelong Hawks fan i hated the new scheme at first, but it grew on me and i like them now. but i agree on the silver pants. i was in the minority that voted for the silver helmet. the team intended to keep it as an alternate helmet but the league wouldn’t allow it. i think they should try again since so many teams wear alternate jerseys nowdays. the silver helmet would be a reference to their past, and make the bird logo stand out more.

    the blue/blue is definitely an improvement on the original blue/white scheme, however, and that’s why the players lobbied for it.

    The Oregon all whites are so clean and fresh. The white helmets would look good with the green jerseys and pants. i was at the Oregon Husky game and the reaction of the crowd when they came out was imence. if you wanna talk the worst uniforms you have to bring the Oregon state sports bras into the conversation. in my opinion they are the worst looking uniforms nike has ever created.

    [quote comment=”159283″]I was watching the LSU game last night and the trivia question was what other NCAA team wears white as their primary uniform at home and on the road. I never could come up with any, and missed the answer. Any else see this or know the answer?[/quote]

    Georgia Tech. At least it was for many years.

    Also, for many years Mississippi State wore white jerseys at home for many of their games. For years, the ONLY time LSU would wear a dark jersey was on the road trip to Miss. State every two years.

    Back before the NCAA mandate that teams had to wear dark jerseys at home, you would not have known that LSU had purple jerseys.

    Late 1950’s through the late 1970’s you could only see the LSU purple jersey in a black&white newspaper picture, or maybe on the coach’s highlight show, as that was before ESPN or the local stations even sending a camera crew to road games.
