    Not a fan. Your current uniforms are much better

    Re: And OU joins the uniform craze

    Sad when some of the best unis in the country have to resort to "tacky".




    Part of this fanbase is like the parable of the blind men and the elephant.

    Who knew?

    I don't even like Iowa State doing this crap, but OU is one of those traditional ones that should not even touch theirs.

    Re: And OU joins the uniform craze

    I dunno....I kind of dig them.


    "I watch the Cyclone players and they look like guys who grew up fighting for everything they got, on and off the court. In a word, men. I look at the Iowa players and I assume when they were kids they played soccer in leagues that didn't keep score to avoid hurting anyone's feelings. There is not one single leader on this team. It's a group of high school friends playing a pickup game at the YMCA and maybe they will keep score, maybe not, because they are just happy to be there."

    #bringthewood??? Really???

    I'm not a big fan of the shiny at the other OU. Not too fond of it here either. Leave the neon for Vegas, focus on the football game.

    I like traditional OU. Old school schools should stay old school.


    Nobody but HB knows for sure. You pretty much know nothing....like Knownothing would like to say.

    Re: And OU joins the uniform craze

    Would be much better without the big 'collar'. Like others have said, OU has some of my favorite unis in CFB, up there with Penn State and Texas. Why add all these details that look like they were from the team creator portion of NCAA13?

    Re: And OU joins the uniform craze

    Jeez, I don't get you guys...... times are changing.... "traditional" went out the door a while ago when schools and conferences started to get greedy and killed 99% of "tradition" and sold it for cash money. "Tradition" as we used to know it is never coming back.

    Now its "how can we get kids here" and "this money is burning holes in our pockets, lets spend it". Everyone needs to understand that this is the new "traditional". If you don't have 3-4 helmets and 75 uniform combinations, you aren't trying hard enough.

    For the record, I like what Oklahoma has done. Its bold, but not overdone.

    Re: And OU joins the uniform craze

    People are going to look back on football uniforms today like we look back on baseball uniforms in the 1970s and 1980s (shorts, collars, Tequila sunrise, elastic waistbands, zip-up tops, powder blue EVERYTHING, yeesh).

    I'm glad that's at least one sport that eventually went back to its revered, classic tradition.

    Those OU uniforms aren't awful--in a relative sense--but they look like a mid-major or lower-tier BCS school screaming for attention. Kind of "blah" compared to the uniform that's won a pile of national titles and Heisman Trophies, too?

    These are work clothes, not costumes. You can clown yourself up from Sunday to Friday.
