Other papers in the state mentioned Larry in their write-ups about the draft.

For the record, I sorta hate seeing new uniforms each week. It's cool once a season for a special game, otherwise a team's identity is watered down when it looks different every game. Just my worthless opinion.
my thing is that i think what is displayed on the field trumps (excuse me) what's on the hat or shoulders.    we can have glowing neon jerseys and flashing hats as far am i'm concerned, but i hope the guys who come here come to bust some chops...not to bust some moves or style out on the gridiron!

We have Nike, and Nike is the most popular brand with the kids.  If you have to pick one, pick this one.  However, we look like all the other schools that do not compete for National Championships.  Generic Nike.  The best uniforms we ever had were from Harv-Al, know for hockey uniforms.  These were the mid-90s, Diego Guevarra uniforms.  Until we matter again, we should stick to Nike.

you, and everybody else can talk about uniforms all you want too.   i'm just saying i think it's a superficial element in college selection.   apparently i'm in the minority.   especially among 18-22 year-olds.   i can live with that.

serious question.   do any kids actually let a uniform determine their choice?  and if so, do we want those flakes?   lambert has said he doesn't have time for head-cases.   i haven't read anywhere that ogunjobi preferred a forward-facing pick-axe to an eagle or a tiger paw.


I honestly think you care more about not wanting people to talk about uniforms, than athletes do about uniforms.

What reason should uniforms NOT be about what the players like and would want to wear? The AD is selling every aspect to the kids.

Like when selling a house, you fix/stage for what a buyer wants.

Imo, uniforms should be cool and different. Not the same ol and boring. We aren't held to 100 years of tradition. If you played sports, you know what it was like given an uniform that you thought really looked cool on you.
