    Fox Sports: Big 12 Uniform Ranking

    Fox Sports ranked the best looking uniforms in the Big 12. It seems to me like it was roughly a press popularity ranking (TTech the exception).

    #10 ISU
    #9 KU
    #8 Mizzou
    #7 K-State
    #6 Baylor
    #5 OSU
    #4 aTm
    #3 OK
    #2 TTech
    #1 Texass

    As always, there was a dig at the ISU uniform similarity to USC's jerseys. I got the link from Ubben's lunch links. He added his ranking from a few months ago.

    I can't take a poll seriously that has OSU at 5th.

    The USC jeers are deserved and we should be in the 1976 unis we beat Iowa in in '07.

    Which would still be jeered for being similar to USC. The only way we wouldn't be jeered for ripping off USC or the Redskins is if we were to have some arse-ugly uniform that is truly worthy of being at the bottom of the big 12.

    Face it - our colors are cardinal and gold, same as USC. We're never going to escape the comparison without doing something we truly hate (like adding blue back into our uniforms), so perhaps it's time people stopped getting their panties in a bunch about it.

    I think someone was onto something when they said we should go the way of LSU and always wear white at home. They look REALLY good.

    I mean, with similar colors, how different can you make uniforms look?

    Re: Fox Sports: Big 12 Uniform Ranking

    Sorry to say but I kind of agree.

    The two color scheme, especially at Home with the Red jersey & Yellow pants isn't especially pleasing on the eyes. Just my humble opinion. I almost think a muted grey (ala KU 2007ish) for pants at home would look better, or best option including white trim in the jerseys like the 70's version.

    The road combo is fantastic though.

    You can tell it's a slow time for sports when they are ranking uniforms.


    They say country music speaks to the heart. Unfortunately, it has to go through your ears to get there.

    Re: Fox Sports: Big 12 Uniform Ranking

    These are always popularity contests, period.

    If Texas wore Wyoming's unis, people would rave about them.

    Baylor has the best unis in the Big 12, fwiw.


    In 1984, I was hospitalized for approaching perfection.

    Yeah, the Baylor green jersey with the white helmets are great. Texas' unis are sweet too, I can't deny that. I'd still put ISU's current look in the top 3-4 of the Big XII. Much better than KSU, Mizzou, OSU etc.

    Re: Fox Sports: Big 12 Uniform Ranking

    To enhance my point I attached KU's home and away look from 2007.

    I think this pant style with our current "two stripes" would look pretty sharp with Cardinal and Gold obviously. I'm fine with the current style as it's definitely better than the past, but it's always fun to tweak. Let's face it we're ISU, we don't have a classic NU, Michigan, OSU look to stick to.

    That's because people think its a good idea to "tweak" our uniforms every 2-3 years.

    any list that puts purple/silver above cardinal/gold is false.

    I hate Baylor, but really, these are some of the best uniforms in all of college ball...

    Just excluding the road unis from the conversation because everyone agrees they're excellent.

    Grey pants is just a bad idea because it's not part of our color scheme. Okay, grey isn't part of KU's scheme either, but there's a difference - they use two dark colors in red and blue. We use one dark color in cardinal and one light color in gold. It's not going to mix as well.

    But when it comes to the home uniforms, people hated using white pants at home (looked too much like Nebraska), and they hated the cardinal-on-cardinal look out of principle. Now the team has gold pants and people hate it because it looks too much like USC.

    What color in the palette is left if the team isn't allowed to use cardinal, gold, or white pants? Take the field wearing jerseys and jock straps? No, that wouldn't work -people would complain about the color of the jock strap...
