Well. Umm … there’s this. Apparently Nike’s “our uniforms are lighter and therefore better” campaign has really taken off. The pants are so thin you can see through them. I guess that would make them lighter, huh?

But the see through pants, which can also be seen here (sorry — and thanks to Kate for the screen grab), are on the same guy in both shots — running back Daniel Herron. I think perhaps it’s time for some new pants, huh? That or maybe a nice pair of compression shorts next time. — Bryan

    What was with Ohio State having two #2’s as well, I know Pryor had it as well as some defensive back?

  • mike | September 14, 2008 at 9:11 am |

    there were two different #2’s on the team because college rosters are so big, there are not enough numbers to go around….i believe the only rule is that you can not have the same number on the field twice at the same time

  • Eddie | September 14, 2008 at 9:12 am |

    A lot of college teams have multiple players with the same #. USC’s running back was #4, and there was a player I saw on defense also wearing #4.

    I don’t know why, but I hate when QBs wear #2. Not as much as I hate the tapering helmet stripe, mind you, but it just doesn’t seem “quarterback-ish”.

    Know what you mean, but then I always think of Tom Clements. Tape guy, big wins at Notre Dame, great career in Canada, now one of the better QB coaches in the game.

    Another “2” we sometimes forget about: Doug Flutie with Patriots and Bears.

    Never could figure out why the NFL was so down on Flutie. Know what his career record as a starter was when he was wavied out of the NFL and went to Canada? 14-9. At the time, a helluva lot better percentage than some guys who were starters for other teams.

    Yup, was like as a group they couldn’t admit maybe they were wrong about the guy. He could play.

    Arkansas State’s Red Wolves broke out of their usual monochrome home look by breaking out bright red jerseys last night against Southern Miss. The photo doesn’t quite do the look justice; those jerseys were a bright scarlet, and were “broken out” following the pre-game warmups.

    Unfortunately, since the Red Wolves lost the game to the Golden Eagles, I suspect A-State will be “back in black” for the rest of the season.

    On the flip side of the 2s, here’s a quarterback who wore the number in the NFL for far too long, when it could have been given to Flutie.

    True, Flutie never got a fair shake in the NFL, but I’ll always think of him as a #22.

    Tim Couch and Aaron Brooks didn’t do much for the number – maybe Matt Ryan (really a #12 at heart) and/or JaMarcus Russell will change my perception.

  • Fleeser | September 14, 2008 at 10:46 am |

    Does anybody know if it’s possible to buy authentic NFL or college football jerseys with capped sleeves and that are slim-fitting in the torso? Have you ever noticed when players wear their jerseys without shoulder pads in pre-game, the jerseys always fit snugly? Whenever I see people wearing NFL or college jerseys (replica or authentic), they are always huge.

  • LM | September 14, 2008 at 11:05 am |

    I noticed a new football helmet being worn that I have never seen before. I saw it while watching UAB play Tennessee on TV at a sports bar.
    At least a couple players for UAB was wearing it. One of the players wearing the new helmet was #18, a defensive back for UAB.
    This helmet was not the new Riddell helmet Washington Redskin’s Chris Cooley is wearing and no it wasn’t one of the trio of new helmets by Schutt (DNA, Air XP or the ION).
    This helmet did appear to be possibly a Riddell helmet, but with a more traditional facemask like used for the the VSR-4 or Schutt Pro-Air, Air Advanatge or XP helmets. The facemask didn’t look like a current Riddell or Schutt model though.
    I haven’t been able to read uniwatch as much as I would like due to work so forgive me if this helmet has already been discussed.

  • Sammy | September 14, 2008 at 11:46 am |

    I didn’t check to see if it was mentioned in yesterday’s comments, but Lou Holtz’s ND cap that he wore for his honorary captain/celebration of ’88 championship game gig yesterday had a huge Reebok logo over the back adjustable strap hole. I thought it odd, that adidas, or someone at Notre Dame would get him a different one. On the other hand, it looked a lot better than the coaches’ gear that Nike and adidas roll out these days, which are mostly ugly. Holtz’s hat was solid navy, ND in gold.

    In Raiders/Chiefs game, Oakland still has the patch (but it looks smaller to me), KC has the decal. My guess is that, since GU was a Raider player, they’ll wear the patch all year.

    SO glad to see the huge patches gone from the GB Packers uniforms. They don’t have as much room as other teams and were looking mightily squished last week. Much better today as a sticker on the helmet.

    Not really. To get them to breathe you need holes. To get them to breathe to the level the NFL teams want them, they have to either have a lot of small holes or larger holes. Either way, you’ll be able to see the pads.

    I didn’t check to see if it was mentioned in yesterday’s comments, but Lou Holtz’s ND cap that he wore for his honorary captain/celebration of ‘88 championship game gig yesterday had a huge Reebok logo over the back adjustable strap hole.

    At the time Lou left ND, the school did not have an all-sports shoe contract (most of the teams wore Champion uniforms). The major coaches had their own personal shoe deals; Lou’s was with Reebok, so he wore Reebok shoes and apparel.

    Late in the Pats/Jets game, as Favre was sitting on the bench, his captain patch was clearly coming off his jersey. You could see it again in the postgame handshakes.

    i know this is not an entirely new phenomenon, but it’s really bothering me especially on QBs, who have actual sleeves…

    PLEEEEEEZE either ditch the stripes OR make them go all around the arm…i know the linemen and, well, everyone but kickers (some) have the cuffs, but it really looks like shit

    it’s annoying me on roethlisberger, but other qb’s have it (eli for example)…i hate truncated stripes (don’t like it on the shoulder stripe either, a la the colts, for example)

    oh well…there’s more things that annoy me, but putting stripes that don’t go around (and which historically used to) pisses me off

    i don’t know what the solution is, because players are going to wear these jersey cuts into the foreseeable future…and you’re prolly not gonna get teams to change their ‘look’ even if that look now looks lame…

  • Dylan | September 14, 2008 at 9:28 pm |

    yea favre’s jockstrap was WAY too visible today. and i saw what somebody above saw; the yellow pads on favre. noticed that last week as well.

    in baseball news, two things about the yankee game today, one small thing and another big thing. brett gardner was wearing low pants today, i think yesterday as well.
    the big thing: paul o’neill, michael kay and david cone were the announcers today, in the 9th inning they had a 3 or 4 minute conversation about stirrups. supposedly the rays 1st base coach (George Hendrick) was the man who brought long pants into style. everyone always wore stirrups and he really didn’t like them so started wearing his pants below his ankles. anybody know if this is true? they both seemed pretty confident about this information. oneill and cone both talked about on their original franchises (reds, royals respectively) and how there were rules about the stirrups and how there actually had to be a certain amount showing and if it wasn’t enough, you could be fined by the team for it. they also mentioned at time instead of real socks they wore hosiery or like stocking type things is what they seemed to be talking about. very interesting i thought that one person seemed to have started the whole low pants thing. i personally think he should be banned from baseball for taking stirrups out of style. anybody agree?

    p.s. this might have been mentioned at some point in the past year, idk

    Regardless of the brand of the football pants, they are all essentially the same material. Whenever you mix a light color (white, grey, etc…) and sweat the pants will appear to be see-through. Especially when combined with a white jock strap underneath. Obviously this isn’t a problem with dark pants. I’ve noticed Florida, Texas, and a variety of other warm weather schools experience this problem on almost a weekly basis. Think of it as a trade off to eliminate the old, heavy style of pants. Maybe not quite as appealing to the fan, but 100 times cooler and lighter.

    [quote comment=”289559″]I’m no computer guru, so I can’t link.. I would advise all to check out the jerseys Va Tech. wore Sat. vs. Ga Tech. As you can tell by my name, I like UNC. That aside, those jerseys are ugly.[/quote]

    The navy UNC pants were awful. Carolina is “Carolina Blue” and shouldn’t mess with navy. It’s a fine accent color, but no way as a main color for Carolina. I don’t know why Nike would have done it. It’s not like anybody buys football pants just to wear around like jerseys, so it can’t be a marketing thing.

    Actually a buddy of mine wants to get football pants to wear because it would be a more extreme demonstration of loyalty to his team. Hoping they won’t be transparent.

    Can you please address the atrocity that was Virginia Tech’s Orange Effect Jersey vs. Georgia Tech? Maybe through education, we can avoid these horrible mishaps in the future.

    The word is Butch is partial to the navy blue. As an aside, all of the nonmainstream sports teams at UNC use navy blue as a big part of their uniform designs.
