    When you don't have a winning history, better uniforms would not hurt.

    Re: We need new UNI's

    I can't even fathom why we are having this conversation. Our uniforms now are clean, classy, classic, simple, and timeless. They feature both our logo in its best terms, our school colors, our name, and our school tradition (the traditions of cardinal-over-gold, the shoulder loops, cardinal/gold striping, etc.). I would never do more than tweak them (at *most* I would maybe rotate in the cardinal or gold pants with white in on the road, or, maybe, the gold tops at home), and I hope we wear exactly them for the next 100 years or more.

    All these uniform trends remind me of musical trends. Sure, they might be fun, but they fundamentally suck, and it is going to look awful so soon. Oregon's uniforms are like auto-tuning--it might be "cool" now, but, five years down the road, it is going to be horrifically dated and frankly funny for all the wrong reasons. And just as President Clinton, it is hard for people to stop making fun of you once they start with it. Hey, Monica. Are we some awful club music for kids on E or are we Beethoven, Bach, or the Beatles?

    (No, that was not a political point, just one about it is hard to re-earn respect once it is lost.)

    And, fundamentally, not to pick a fight with the OP, but I don't know how you can compliment TCU's uniform. What was "sweet" about them? What do they do? They are way too dark... purple or black just looks like an ugly blob on the field. Their helmets are fine, minus the black face masks, and I like their logo. Purple and black just does not provide enough contrast, too, and they would be way better to have a purple/white or purple/silver combination with purple lids on the field. There is no striping, anywhere, and odd textures and fonts. Their band and their cheerleaders had good, classic looks that celebrated their school and their tradition. Why can't the team? Football might feel like they are "on the edge," but they just look silly to anybody who isn't trying to make a superhero or WWE costume.

    Easy sport...I just don't understand what is wrong with the current uniforms. Second, I am not against gold and I am not against the idea of a trice era throwback, I simply don't believe it's been executed well to this date....and you may be correct, happy for the win, but still lots of progress to be made.

    Re: We need new UNI's

    A subtle tweak here and there (very subtle) might be worthwhile. But our uni's are awesome, and our logo kicks ***. A drastic change for a single game is cool if you know you're guaranteed to win that game and then auction them to raise money (SEZ?). But even this is a risk; look at UofI loss against us this year. Also notice that timeless teams have timeless uni's.

    We should let maryland and oregon's students design our uniforms they did a great job with theirs.

    Re: We need new UNI's

    So "UNI's" means uniforms? Im confused. If so. someone could go back and read the 50+ other threads about this topic. It's just a tired subject.

    Re: We need new UNI's

    I actually thought our road uniforms were the best in the nation back when we wore red pants and white tops. Rhoads likes white on white which is fine.

    In any case, our uniforms and more importantly logo should not be touched anymore.

    Re: We need new UNI's

    [QUOTE=oldwiseman;3092222]Yes, we won, everything is awesome today....

    But, our uni's are awful. Red and yellow stripes don't work. Look at TCU's uni's, solid colors and they look bad ***

    The TCU uni's are trend of the day like so many others. Trendy is not timeless or bad ***. Black looks slow and old, and I get a kick out of schools using black when it is not even a school color. All the piping and trim on some of the uniforms looks gimicky and cheap. We finally have a timeless look, stick with it.

    You know it's a good uniform when USC copies it!

    Re: We need new UNI's

    The only change we need to make to our uniform is to stitch a bowl logo on at the end of the year. Team has some work to do to get that done, though.I do think that alternate helmet is cool, too. I'm still thinking something in cardinal with that chrome effect, with the current logo, not the Jim Criner logo.
