    That's pretty sweet. Not sure why new basketball uniforms are so hideous in comparison to football unis.

    No choice when you're a tarheel.

    If I had to have a foot on my helmet, I would want that helmet with a foot on it.

    I think they'd look better with the NC logo. I do really like them though.

    those are sweet. too bad JP won't entertain any special ideas at all. I think it would really fire up the fan base, especially coming off two bowl losses.

    Are they changing their names to the cartoon feet? I mean they look cool but I don't know if I'd want that 2nd one. It's like it's really cool and then they ruin it.

    I know I'm and old curmudgeon, but I am starting to see this whole uniform thing like a hacky comic looking for laughs. You shouldn't need some ugly *** uniform to get the fanbase excited. I just don't get how a uniform would, "Excite a fanbase" Most the time, the uniforms are questionabe enough, that half the fanbase hates them. Then add that to the fact that I think it's more of a distraction to the players than it is any kind of real inspiration for the game, take our yellow jerseys against Mizzou for example.

    The only positive, imo about any kind of uniform oddity, seems to be the press you get about it now. It might open the eyes of a recruit who might otherwise not see you. Other than that, I'm a fan of coming out, playing hard and winning the game on the scoreboard, as opposed to turning it into a fashion show and seeing who can strut their stuff the best on the catwalk.

    Again, yes, I'm old and grumpy, so I know I don't speak for everyone.

    Re: North Carolina's Football Black Out Helmets

    So what is the point of the blue not showing up until the lights are on? Are they planning on shutting the lights off in the middle of the game?

    Some of these jerseys and helmets these days look like the USFL. And they were considered ugly at the time.
