    Re: Ranking conference uniforms ...

    When I look for Big 12 uniform rankings, I too head over to the Ohio State SB Nation website.

    I like K-State's look and probably would put them #1 in the conference. I am not a fan of UT's numbers above the logos on the helmets.

    This x 1000. UT had probably the best helmet in all of football with just the longhorn on there. They look awful with the numbers.


    Kansas wears Adidas.

    UT has by far and away the best helmet. I like their unies both home and away, although their all white threads make them look a bit like ballerinas. Ou and K-State are close. I believe the article missed on talking down the I-State logo which is far stronger than the bird-in-a-blender variety. ISU would benefit by returning to their cardinal and gold "Dirty Thirty" heritage.

    So basically the teams that win have the best uni's and the teams that dont have the worst. Got it.

    Sans Oregon, I think some programs tend to change uniforms to create interest, yes.

    Winner winner chicken dinner.

    If ISU was a perennial power, people who would rave about our uniforms. They really don't look bad at all.

    Re: Ranking conference uniforms ...

    Winning helps everything. It's no coincidence that we always get ranked last in crap like this because we're always so damn terrible at football. If we'd had a more winning tradition over the last 5-10 years, more people would say our look was "classic" or something a little more positive, at least. I'm not too fond of our helmets, but the rest of the ensemble is not that different from our peers. We're just losing a lot more than they are. I wouldn't mind seeing us try something new... but that doesn't appear likely any time soon.

    Anyway, hard to argue with Texas, Oklahoma, and KSU. I would probably swap West Virginia and TCU, as I really like the Mountaineers' colors and think their different combos are striking, but the black-and-purple of TCU is just murder on the eyes. I like OSU's different combinations, especially the gray, but the all-orange with the cowboy helmet is garish. I've never cared for anything that Tech or Baylor have put out there.

    The basketball ranking would have Kansas #1. So yeah, these kinds of rankings exist for no other reason than to generate page clicks.

    Didn't really follow that pattern with the Big Ten:

    Re: Ranking conference uniforms ...

    I would put us in the top half fairly simply. I don't like purple and if it's not Nike, put them behind us. That places TT, TCU, KSU, KU all behind us. Don't like the green and gold of BU no matter how many alt's they've got, so if nothing else that at least puts us top 5 in the conference.

    Can't say that I disagree with the rankings. Pretty spot on IMO.

    Texas added the number on top of the Longhorn to try and mimic Alabama, right? That's my assumption.

    Do you feel we have the 3rd or 4th best in basketball? :)
