Fresno State unveiled their new Nike Pro Combat Elite Uniforms yesterday (their first new uniforms in fourteen years). Coach Pat Hill’s reaction to the uniforms and the “football fashion show” video is available below. The Facebook gallery is available here.
Boston College revealed the six different combinations of their new football uniforms for this season made by Under Armour. They had some complaints about the readability of the previous unis’ slanted number font and they’ve definitely improved upon that. BC also carried over the “Jesuit Stained Glass” effect that they’ve used on the numbers over to the helmet stripe.
Cincinnati looks like they’ll have a gun-metalesque all black helmet next season. Adam Kramer over at Kegs N’ Eggs thinks they are trying to create some post Brian Kelly buzz:
After a lackluster season, the Bearcats are looking to establish themselves once again, this time without Brian Kelly. Although headwear won’t impact how they fair in 2011 whatsoever [OR WILL IT?] Cincinnati appears to be testing out some all-black helmets that will likely generate a good amount of positive and negative buzz.
Anyone watching the PGA Championship this week may have noticed those ball marker belt clips being worn by a fair amount of the players this year. It’s difficult to get a good close-up, but they do have the Atlanta Athletic Club logo on them. Just for the record, I’m assuming these are ball markers. Please set me straight if I am mistaken.
Update: These are player badges that are given out for all major championships except the Masters.

Who knows when those years of training will pay off…
And, of course, your full-size strip.
