Ricko Would Be Disappointed

First off, kudos to the kid for thinking quick and welcoming the new guy to town. But masking tape? Black Sharpie? Really?

Even though it would clash a bit — but still be better than the current product — I think I would have gone with a blue painter’s tape to cover up the old name and number. Then maybe use some Wite-Out for the letters and number, and then get a bit of yellow and blue Sharpie in there for the trim.

Not that I put a lot of thought into it or anything. — Bryan

    Agreed. Maybe Bryan got picked on a lot as a kid and feels a compulsion to transfer that onto other kids or something. That’s the only thing that might explain this otherwise unexplainable predilection for picking on kids.

    Besides, Bryan’s idea is stupid. There’s no way that blue painter’s tape would stick on fabric. Believe me, I’ve tried it before.

    So, that’s a “double dumb-ass on you”, Bryan. (Bonus points if anyone can identify that quote.)

    OK, before I quote/paraphrase the whole damn movie, I’ll get back to the topic.

    From the department of jersey numbers with meaning, “Broncos cornerback Champ Bailey then brought out the game ball, wearing a Billups jersey with No. 7 on the back. Billups is donning the number in honor of John Elway.” (source article)
    On the other side of the trade, Iverson looks good as Detroit’s #1. The way the typography works, it looks like he’s wearing his initial as a number, similar to Al Oliver with the Expos.

    My previous comment on the lack of quality Big 10 football this year, had me thinking…

    Is there any conference in college football, that has such a large gap between quality of football and quality of team uniforms???

    Example: Big 10, is probably about an 8.5 on a scale of 1 to 10, on overall uni goodness. (In my opinion, many classic, timeless unis)

    They are probably a 2.5 on a scale of 1 to 10, on overall level of competition goodness.

    I’d have the SEC as the best overall, uni & quality of play combined.. probably about a 9 (uni) and 9 (level of play).

    Just food for thought on Saturday night…

    Been a while since they wore black-black-white, hasn’t it?

    Also, and this’ll probably jinx the guy, but in a whole lot of years watching college football I have never seen a QB who puts the ball from point A to point B any better than Graham Harrell.

    Yikes, what’s everybody got against yellow/light gold pants? They’re everywhere in football, have been for close to 60 years. That mean you don’t like white or silver pants, too?

    (Or are you differenating between the colors of Oregon/Michigan and, say, Iowa/Super Bowl Rams? Cuz, yeah, they aren’t the same color. Oregon/Michigan are flat-out YELLOW!)

    But, hey, I suppose it depends on when we started following the game. In that context, it’s totally reasonable. It’s just human nature to tend to favor stuff that, generally, is mindful of what we remember from our first experiences.

    Ricko, it’s more on the whole “not having the pants remotely match the helmet”. Michigan, Green Bay, etc. wear helmets with yellow in them so that there’s yellow elsewhere in the jersey… Oregon, on the other hand, wears yellow quite arbitrarily. Look at those Arizona State pictures and tell me where else besides the pants that there’s yellow.

    Oh, well, yes, THAT combo vs. ASU sucked. Big time. Very D3.

    Said it before, to me Oregon looked best before they added the black. Those unis were fun, and rightly could be called “unique,” like Temple’s pants striping. Unfortunately, instead of remaining unique they became trendsetting (Cal, Minnesota…ad nauseum).

  • dkb | November 8, 2008 at 10:32 pm |

    [quote comment=”298928″]I think the UNC dark blue jersey looked good. To me, the uni was the removal of some bad nike piping from being a very classy alternative look.

    Anybody else think UNC should try to incorporate argyle into their football unis too (anyone know if they have before)? I enjoy it on their basketball digs.[/quote]

    The third/navy jersey for the Heels has been hinted at since Butch Davis came on the scene. He even goes with the navy and white for practice. (I’ve never seen them use the Carolina Blue practice jerseys as I have checked out the official website since his arrival.)

    The Charlie “Choo Choo” Justice connection is something that has been mentioned from the beginning–only to make it more palitable when it happened.

    Back in the late 1980s when Dick Crum was finishing his head coaching stint, Carolina’s white unis featured navy/black numbers and looked horrendous with the Carolina blue helemt–at least the home jersey remained unchanged.

    As for the argyle–it only goes back to 1991 when Alexander Julian (a UNC grad and designer of the original Charlotte Hornets unis) incorporated it in the redesign. That was also the first time navy appeared in the basketball unis–earlier it was black and the 1957 Champs even had red piping on the sleeves and neckline. I have now even heard the basketball team referred to as “the argyle.”

    My fear now is that we will come running out sometime in navy basketball unis. I can see the third uni thing in football and I don’t mind it, but on the hardwood I think I would actually puke–it would seem too much like Dook with their black.

  • dkb | November 8, 2008 at 10:38 pm |

    And BTW–No argyle in the FB unis. It would be a disaster on the order of the Cincinnati Bengals.

    Also, I am just waiting also for all the possible color combinations we can have like the Tennessee Titans since we introduced the Navy pants at Rutgers this year.

    Navy monochrome or Carolina blue monochrome? NEITHER!

  • dkb | November 8, 2008 at 10:41 pm |

    One last thing–the Carolina style guide calls the navy color, “Tar Heel Deep Blue.” To me it looks navy (and that’s what all the catalogs say).

    I just posted this to my blog earlier today:
    Here’s what they should have (pay attention UofO Athletic Department):
    Helmets: Green, White
    Jerseys: Green, Black, White, Yellow (only worn occasionally)
    Pants: Green, Black, White

    Combinations (Helmet/Jersey/Pants):
    Green/Green/Black
    Green/Black/Green
    Green/White/Green
    Green/Yellow/Green
    Green/White/White
    White/Green/White
    White/White/White
    White/White/Green

    AND THAT’S IT!

    Get rid of the yellow helmets and the yellow pants, use just those combinations and The Ducks will always look fairly good.

    It’s the Hall of Fame Game patch, Phil. Good on you for the hockey patch knowledge. That’s probably why you got a tan box – knowledge in all the major sports. ;o)

    The Leafs wear them every year for during the Hall of Fame Game weekend. I don’t see one on the Canadiens in that picture, but the opposing team usually wears them as well.

    It seems people love to hate Oregon and simply blame the uni. But the only thing wrong with there uniforms is the diamond plate. If they replaced that with tv numbers, or puddles, or something like that, then the uni’s would be outstanding.

    No horns, no piping, clean lines. It’s a good uniform. (sans d-plate).

    The green helmet is just plain awesome. You need to see it in person & in the sunlight to appreciate it. It is a special paint designed to replicate the sheen from a mallards feathers. What a sweet idea! And the O is designed after Hayward field (previous FB stadium) and the original Autzen. The exterior circumference of the O is Autzen Stadium and the inside is the track from Hayward Field. There aren’t many schools around who put that much thought into the design of one letter.
