Congratulations! You’re Going to the Hula Bowl!*

Football

*Please bring your own belt.

To be perfectly fair, Tulsa’s Paul Smith probably decided to rock the blue himself. None of the other players seemed to be wearing non-matching belts. Note also, the nose bumper, which is supposed to say “Canes” but appears to just say “Cane.” When your eligibility is used up, apparently you only worry about yourself.

In completely non-belt-related happenings, if this guy played basketball, I’m guessing he’d go with these. — Bryan

    Actually, since Tulsa’s nickname is the Golden Hurricane, doesn’t it make sense that the bumper would say “Cane” instead of “Canes?”

  • Stuby | January 13, 2008 at 8:06 am |

    Tulsa is the Golden Hurricane – singular, not the HurriCANES. Why? I have no idea. They should be the Golden Tornado or something that actually occurs in Oklahoma. So, strangely, his nose bumper is correct.

  • Taha | January 13, 2008 at 8:14 am |

    Since when does New Balance make jerseys?

  • Jason | January 13, 2008 at 8:50 am |

    This was probably hashed to death last night, but the refs in the GB/Seattle game looked infinitely better than the refs in the Jax/NE game. Those black pants are a farce. (Old news, I know, but it had to be said again.)

    I don’t think you’ll see the Giants alternate “reds” anymore this season.

    I’m almost sure the Cowboys always wear white at home, especially in the playoffs. Which means the Giants would wear their “home” jersey for the second road game in a row.

    As far as alternates, I couldn’t see a home playoff team choosing something other than what they would normally wear, if only for superstitious purposes only. And possibly because if they lost, whoever chose the alternates would take a thumping in the media for their choice.

  • mike | January 13, 2008 at 10:38 am |

    Ok, I’ve had enough. The NFL needs to do something about those god-awful neon green gloves the seahawks are wearing. Yes I know the color is in the teams color palette, but damn. No wonder they can’t win playoff games, those gloves are blinding them.

  • sebastian | January 13, 2008 at 10:48 am |

    Didn’t the San Francisco 49ers rock the alternate unis all the way through their playoff run for Super Bowl XXIX? It was the year NFL was celebrating being 75.

  • sebastian | January 13, 2008 at 10:50 am |

    And about the Seahawks, the lime green gloves are about the only thin I approve of in their uniform. That mud-green-gray color scheme just isn’t conducive to spirit or excitement. It’s the overcast sky of NFL uniforms.

    Which I guess fits Seattle, but still.

  • Vincent A. Cipollone | January 13, 2008 at 10:54 am |

    Those Hula Bowl jerseys look like friggin’ practice jerseys. Also, who the Hell thought it’d be good to play football in Hawaii in black? We may get on Nike for being bad but New Balance has proven that they’re no better.

    A golden tornado is a dust tornado heavy in mica thats appears to shine as it spins. A golden hurricane is a very large and low spinning golden tornado, usually significantly larger than a tornado and quite more destructive. When Tulsa decided to change their mascot in 1922 they decided upon golden hurricane because at the time Georgia Tech was know as the golden tornadoes. It is singular because the players actions act as one force, as in one hurricane.

  • Ed from Dallas | January 13, 2008 at 11:23 am |

    Judging from past Cowboys-Giants games, the Cowboys will wear white of course and the Giants blue. Usually when the Cowboys play in the Meadowlands, the Giants will wear red.

  • David | January 13, 2008 at 11:24 am |

    the 49ers wore those all year, though, and that was considered their standard uniform for that year. also, the cowboys will be rocking their usual home whites. the giants will be in blue. i’m almost 100% certain that the NFL forbids alternate jerseys in the playoffs. although as we’ve seen with jax the last two weeks, it appears that teams have a choice of pants – the jags wore the white on white earlier in the season and i’m not sure which pants, if any, were designated as the standard road pants.

    I stand corrected. They all say Cane. Sorry — I was getting a bit punchy last night. It was funnier the way I said it, at least.

    And the belt thing — everybody else had either a white or black belt on. Paul Smith appeared to be the only one in a team-colored belt.

  • Michael | January 13, 2008 at 12:49 pm |

    I noticed this yesterday at the packers game, but I’ve seen it before. The NFL Equipment logo on Green Bay Jerseys has been moved around on certain jerseys to complement different jersey tightness or fit styles. Compare the standard style with the adjusted styles on different players like Ryan Grant. Just thought it looked funny with the logo stuck in between the numbers.

    No, I’m talking about his jersey number being around his waist. Because of the front cut of the jersey, the only way to fit a gigantic ‘HULA BOWL’ is too move it down seemingly below the chest. The result is like two feet between his neck and the top of the number. Jersey numbers seem to be getting smaller and smaller and lower and lower. It looks pretty stupid if you ask me.

    I jump in the FORD Focus to drive down the street to the NEW LIM CHINESE resteraunt to get foodskis (want to make your my SPONSORS get their MENTIONS) and I heard Marv Albert say…

    “Back here at the SUBWAY FRESH BROADCAST BOOTH in
    Indianapolis…..”

    But that’s not the worst.

    The Chargers, who just beat the Colts, made a long pass play and ended up inside the 10..and they were in the….wait for it….it’s worth it..

    This must be your first time listening to the WW1 broadcasts this year, because those sponsorships have been in place all year, as well as the Rolaids Moment of the game. That kind of sponsorship has been a part of sports radio broadcasts since the dawn of sports radio broadcasts. It’s like saying that a commercial is “branding creep”.

  • =bg= | January 13, 2008 at 4:29 pm |

    It might be the first time I caught a WW1 show. The Heinz Red Zone was really too much. I guess within the confines in Pitts, it’s OK givene the environment. And I don’t really mind the naming of buildings to help defray their cost. But tagging it on to a mention when there’s no connection makes no sense. I can see the Rolaids Fireman of the Year I guess, as an example. I;ve worked in radio since 1980, so I’m well aware of branding. These two examples seem excessive.

    In my opinion, nothing is excessive in radio. Did you happen to catch that the 2 Minute Warning is sponsored by OnStar? Or the Barbasol Close Shave Instant Replay?

    I miss the days when we had the Rams on the station I work for, they always had the Copyright Disclaimer sponsored by a legal firm.

    Actually, Marshall’s and TJ MAXX are great places to find jerseys at bargain prices, especially for kids. Sure they’re past seasons models, but still pretty cool. I’ve found Chad Johnson (both black and orange), Chad Pennington, Larry Johnson, Randy Moss (Raiders), Reggie Bush, Wayne Chrebet, Adam Vinitieri (Patriots), Joey Harrington (Lions), and, for me, Takeo Spikes (Bills), Joey Porter (Steelers), and a Ben Roethlisberger Miami University with stitched numerals and nameplate ($14.99).

    If the cowboys won, they just would have gotten killed the packers next week. By losing this week, they actually saved themselves more embarisment.

    now the pack won’t have to remove them speshul lamebow patches from their green jerseys

    FOR THE LOVE OF ALL THAT IS GOOD AND HOLY! NO!!!!
    The Bulls have the SICKEST (and one the CLASSIC) uniforms in the NBA and under NO CIRCUMSTANCES should they EVER change them. The City of Chicago would flip if that were to happen.
    It’s bad enough the uni’s are made entirely with that Fruitcake dazzle material.

    I’m surprised that Adidas hasn’t worked their “3 Stripes” onto every uniform ala MLS.

    This is the best I was able to find, you can barely see it on his right cheek.

    I’ve noticed he’s been doing it since last season. I don’t remember him doing it as a Bear.

    1 – Nobody blamed Jessica Simpson last year, yet the Cowboys’ season ended the same way then as now: with a mistake off the hand of Tony Romo. There is no correlation, but humans and sportswriters (they’re not always in the same Venn diagram) like to try to find connections between discrete events to make sense of the universe. Again, there is no correlation.

    2 – Wayne Larivee on WTMJ said that, as opposed to the “appointed” Green Bay captains during the season, playoff captains were “elected” by the team, which would give them time to put the official Cs on the jerseys of those so elected.

    3 – The 49ers’ throwbacks in 1994 were not their “standard” jerseys. They were their throwback uniforms, and every team had one that year to commemorate the league’s 75th season. But while teams only had to wear them in Week 3, the 49ers had success in them and elected to keep them. They were 3-2 but only lost once in their last 14 games including the playoffs.

    4 – The Cowboys do not ALWAYS wear white at home, but most of the time. They wore the blue throwbacks at home against Green Bay this year. I do not believe they would deliberately wear their traditional blues at home, especially in a playoff game.

    I noticed that, unlike the other Giants, Toomer’s nameplate is rounded at the top rather than on the bottom — as if it were upside down.

    Some Giants fan. He doesn’t know that he’s really wearing a Bills jersey.

    I lack screen-grab capabilities, but any idea what those couple patches on Tony Romo’s arm were today? They looked small like Nicorette patches or something. He had two of ’em on one arm above his wristband, one above the other. I didn’t notice them until the 2nd half and I think one was gone in the fourth quarter. Anyone else notice this/know what they were for?

    As an aside, I’d like to thank/curse Uni Watch for changing the way I look at sporting events. Now I’m constantly hunting for these little nuggets and then racing to my computer to see if anyone else has noticed them. I feel like a treasure hunter and a nerd at the same time. And I love it.

    I’m sure he knows damn well. Why else would you plaster a WIDE RIGHT on a Norwood jersey? Betcha the back has a NO GOOD inscription along with the LNOB.
    Honestly, those jerseys are so similar. The main indicators are the sleeve and neck patterns (blue-red-blue=Giants; red-blue-red=Bills), which are not easily visible from far away.

    In NCAA all star games which feature all seniors (those with no eligibility left) they use an NFL ball because they technically no longer player college football, and the NFL is the next step for some of them. These all star games serve as a scouting opportunity more than anything.

  • Calvin | January 14, 2008 at 1:55 am |

    a good number of the Cowboys players wore blank (white) nose bumpers in the game today, while others had ones that said ‘Riddell’ or ‘Cowboys’. I’m not a ‘boys fan, so I only noticed this today, anyone else catch it?

  • zach | January 14, 2008 at 3:54 am |

    Just a piece of randomness here. But you’d figure an official NFL team site would have these things up to speed.

    If Grimace wore a jersey, he’d look like Charles Barkley in the dark Suns jerseys.

    after Tulsa scores the cheerleaders run on to the field with flags that spell out T-U-L-S-A. but of course, when they turn around and run back the name is reversed and it spells ASLUT. Always thought that was amusing.

    He has a Scott Norwood jersey on. That’s classic! From a distance, it could also appear to be a Phil Simms jersey, but it’s definitely a Bills jersey, and Norwood was #11, hence the “WIDE RIGHT” on the front also.
