    Uniwatch - ISU v. NU #1

    Excerpt from the Uniwatch blog:

    Uni Watch
    (at the bottom of the November 7th post)



    5 & 1
    And now, the part of the post you’ve all been waiting for: The 5 & 1. More than a few games in the running for the five open spots yesterday, but probably even more (thanks to the Wounded Warrior Project) in the hunt for the Mothervilker.
    Lets see how Jim did:
    ~~~ Honorable Mention to Northwestern/Penn State: A decent matchup, but more importantly, congrats to a very decent guy, Joe Paterno on his 400th win (and yes, I’d wear JoePa’s outfit, glasses and all).
    5. Air Force/Army: Army’s “dress grays” are good, but those fabulous Thunderbirds unis are some powerful stuff.
    4. Arizona/Stanford: Nice modern vs. classic matchup with good contrast.
    3. Wisconsin/Purdue: Sometimes mono white vs, mono black works (hang on to that thought ’til the end) …
    2. Alabama/LSU: Soooo close to #1, but not this week.
    1. Nebraska/Iowa State: Cyclones have been hanging around, and finally made it back to the top after a couple of months.
    And the worst one: Missouri/Texas Tech: …and sometimes it doesn’t work.

    I have no idea what is going on? What is this poll and what is the ranking system?

    I love those Air Force throwbacks!!! The Falcons are my second favorite team and it breaks my heart that they canceled that home and home.

    Speaking of unis, whatever happened to those gold ones we were supposed to be wearing. I thought people were saying that was a sure thing.

    Uniwatch is a blog dedicated to uniform and jersey design. Each week they rank the five best college football uniform matchups of the weekend. They're very critical of a lot of uniforms in general. ISU has been on there a bunch, indicating they really like our current unis.

    Re: Uniwatch - ISU v. NU #1

    Thought I would update this thread a little. Don't know who Jim Vilk is but he sure does like ISU's uni's... and so do I.

    From Uni Watch

    3. Iowa State/Iowa: The Cyclones don’t look like USC, they look better than USC.

    1. Iowa State/Kansas State: Color, stripes and grass — a real trifecta.

    2. Iowa State/Oklahoma — A blowout on the scoreboard, but a tie when it comes to the unis.

    2. Iowa State/Texas — A good showing for the Corn Belt this week.

    3. Kansas/Iowa State: If the Jayhawk logo was still on KU’s helmets, this could have been #1.

    1. Nebraska/Iowa State: Cyclones have been hanging around, and finally made it bacl to the top after a couple of months.

    1. Iowa State/Colorado: Black jerseys look great on cloudy days (good ones do, at least).

    Re: Uniwatch - ISU v. NU #1

    With all the negative uniform talk I figured this thread could use a bump.

    For the record I love the new logo and it looks awesome on the Basketball court.

    Our road unis are some of the best in the nation.


    I don't bring my own opinions, just attack others.

    Me too. I have zero qualms with ISU's road unis. They're about as close to perfect as you can get for something that doesn't have much history behind them. I actually wouldn't mind if they pulled an LSU and wore whites all the time.
