Kentucky went monochrome on Saturday, while Norfolk State most definitely did not. I really don’t like the all-blue look there — it’s the definition of unitard.

But Norfolk State … now you’re on to something. I’m guessing it’ll be a pretty polarizing look. Me, I like it in a low-budget high school sort of way. It’s different than everybody else, but probably because they were dug out of the old storage closet or something. Unfortunately, monochrome still wins. — Bryan

    people bitch about monocrhome in football like its a crime. Bt in each ofhte other 4 major sports, monochrome is accepted and almost obligatory, (ya know except for the wizards gold disasters)
    so why not in football? i think it looks just damn fine.
    i’d rather see all blue broncos with the side piping than their disgusting Orange jerseys with white pants, and things of the like.

    Change just for the sake of change is…not always good. Sometimes is just the sign of someone who’s easily bored, or who always thinks anything they do automatically will be an improvement over what someone else has done.

    As to monochromatic, it really does depend on the color combination and the design, doesn’t it. To me, monochrome works best when it’s top-to-bottom, like the Broncos unis you show. But I find exceptions to that, too. West Virginia in all gold (with navy helmets) last year, for example. The were so freakin’ fast that it gave them a kind of “lightning in a bottle” look that worked. It’s all about what we each find pleasing…or displeasing. I know I just can’t get into a light helmet over dark jersey and dark pants (like that one Jets combo, or Oregon yesterday). Don’t know why, just looks odd, and low budget high school, to me.

    Central Florida? Well, it IS a unique look, I’ll give them that. And they ARE the Golden Knights, right?

    LOL. Not trying to change anyone’s mind here, just explaining.

    Gotta be a generational thing. Has to do with how old you were when you starting noticing such things. For me and lotta guys my age and a bit younger, our kneejerk reaction is that a guy who shows up in black socks is a geek who doesn’t even own a pair of athletic socks. However, I’m getting used to them and in some cases they work great…on a team where black or navy (like Michigan; really like them with Michigan’s homes) is one of the team’s two predominant colors. In other words, to me black socks still look a little dippy and out of place on a team like Ohio State. Or Miami. Or Indiana. And probably always will.

    Generally speaking, still like white laces in black shoes, too (if with white socks, of course) cuz back then black laces in plain black shoes was seriously old-fashioned and looked, relatively speaking, like street shoes.

    For Central Florida, we dropped the “Golden” a few years back and now we’re just the Knights. However, in the campus bookstore, they’re selling black jerseys with gold accents that I’ve never seen before that I THINK they’re going to wear for the homecoming game against Southern Mississippi on November 8. I’ll try and get a few pictures of it on Monday when the bookstore reopens.

    Maybe it’s just cuz I’m from outside Green Bay, but the Green & Gold combo of Norfolk state looks dandy to me.

    I’m also sad to think that there won’t be any Green & Gold in the NBA next season now that the Thunder is in town.

    Don’t know what sports have against Green in general. Only two basketball teams left (Celtics, Bucks), three NFL (Eagles, Jets & Packers), one baseball team (Athletics) and maybe two NHL teams (Stars & Wild) that wear it primarily. As American as I am, I still get sick of all the teams that stick with Red & Blue.

  • MPowers1634 | September 7, 2008 at 10:48 am |

    So how can Norfolk State get away with wearing colored jerseys on the road? Doesn’t this conflict with the USC/UCLA rule (i.e. one team has to wear white jerseys)?

    Granted, they’re not very dark, but neither are UCLA’s. And I’d even say that Norfolk State’s jerseys are darker than UCF’s home jerseys.

    I like the look of both teams in colored jerseys, as long as they contrast. I follow international rugby somewhat, and it can lead to some beautiful matches.

    I very much like both sides in coloured uniforms. If the colours don’t clash then let them wear their regular uniforms. Take the Sunday NFL fixtures, Lions and Falcons would be fine, as would Chiefs – Patriots and Vikings – Packers, no need for whites there.

  • Jeff Frank | September 7, 2008 at 11:45 am |

    I hate to be way off topic here, but I think what Oregon is doing with Todd Doxey’s number is one of the cooler thing I have seen when it comes to honoring a fallen teammate. Its had a couple weeks to settle in now, and just watching the players and how excited they get when they get to wear 29 is amazing. (I’m go to UO, so I get to see the guys off the field in the week leading up to the game). I’ve never really seen anything like it.
    Now if we can only hide those yellow helmets somewhere where nobody can find them (did you know that they are required by Nike to wear them at least once a season?)

    True. True. The good old days when he was proclaiming innocence, so people could say he was being persecuted and make a “statement” (of course, once he actually was been PROSECUTED he fessed up, and all those people looked pretty stupid…and gullible).

    I think next softball season I’ll get an extra jersey with each player’s number…so I’ll have one to wear in case a teammate’s wife makes him stay home to mow the lawn or something. An event of that significance shouldn’t go without a proper tribute.

    Gold can be worn either as the “home” jersey or the “road” jersey. Yesterday during the all-directional Florida game, UCF wore its usual home jersey (gold), and USF wore the road whites. UCF has worn the gold jersey during a bowl game where the other team wore the dark jersey.

    Gold is the only color you can get away with this, which is strange, seeing how teams that wear brighter colors such as powder blue or orange would contrast with dark-colored jerseys of some opponents. Still, the NCAA doesn’t budge.

    The current throwback set debuted in ’98, but it’s all the same. Looks like I had a brain fart as well, as the Sack Exchange-era uniform debuted in ’78, not ’77.

    The Jets wore the 1963-77 jersey and pants with the new green helmets in preseason in ’78 before the full uniform appeared in the regular season. There’s at least one pic confirming this in the ’79 yearbook, which I remember but can’t find for the life of me. The ’78 yearbook is filled with nice photos of various NYSE-era Jets in the old uniform, including Richard Todd, Wes Walker, Joe Klecko, Bruce Harper, Jerome Barkum, Greg Buttle, Abdul Salaam and Pat Leahy. Oddly, there’s no mention of the new uniforms in the yearbook, although the new logo (angular JETS script with the plane-like tail on the J) appears on the front cover, title page and centerfold, and a graphic of the green helmet is on the page with the Personnel directory.

Keith Fitzhugh, who normally wears #1 as a result of his late sister requesting it in a dream, wore #22 yesterday, which was the number of Jamar Cheney, who was injured last week and is out for the season.

    Fitzhugh said: “Me and him, we’ve talked about it, and he really doesn’t mind if I do. I lost a little sister, and I had a dream she told me to wear number one. So, it’s a big toss‐up right now. I’m just going to talk to my family and talk to Chaney.”[/quote]

He wore those Tiger road pants in at least one softball-related episode of MAGNUM, P.I. while playing shortstop for the Kamehameha Club co-rec sofball team. Wore the low solid navy stirrups and the road hat with orange “D” edged in white with them, too. In the opening of another episode he wore a complete Tiger home uni (#14) but never got to the field because Higgins came up with something that took him away from his regular Sunday softball game.

    Oh, and sometimes he wears actual FOOTBALL cleats, as he did in the Pro Bowl with these Super Speed D by Nike:

    The Miami kicker is wearing the Mercurial Vapor IVs, not Ronaldinhos, and Cromartie is wearing Total 90s (probably the Lasers).

    I Agree! BTW, Paul Brown was born on Sept. 7, 1908. It is too bad that both of his teams ( Browns and Bengals), lost today. :-(

    [quote comment=”288206″]people bitch about monocrhome in football like its a crime. Bt in each ofhte other 4 major sports, monochrome is accepted and almost obligatory, (ya know except for the wizards gold disasters)
    so why not in football? i think it looks just damn fine.
    i’d rather see all blue broncos with the side piping than their disgusting Orange jerseys with white pants, and things of the like.

    In baseball the monochrome is usually a more subdued color. In hockey there’s at least some break in color between shoulders and ankles. In basketball (until recently) there was less fabric. Monochrome in football looks good if the color isn’t either too dark or too intense. The Dolphins in all aqua a few years ago made people’s eyes bleed, as do the Bills’ new duds. The Panthers’ alts would work as a monochrome set, though.
