Not on the same scale as many of these, but this wasn't a good look (nor was the scoreboard at the end of this game):

As bad as it gets.  I challenge you to find a worse alternate uni.

Is this a real thing? This is one of the worse uni's I have ever seen.

And before my post becomes a Buckeye piling on a Wolverine. OSU has had it's share of clunkers over the last decade.

Michigan football to ease back on alternate uniforms ...
Dave Brandon special.

That's bad but it's not even in the top 25 of horrible alt unis.

No. Just a rando photoshop. I've long been interested in the fraction of CFB fans who combine their fanaticism and tech savvy to either spend hours dreaming up dozens of jerseys or hours message boarding on the merits of those photoshop inventions. That doesn't happen on this board, but I've seen boards where threads like that really take off.

I know some guys on auto forums that do this with the livery of various Formula 1 and other racing teams.  It's really cool.  They often do a better job than the highly paid design professionals that get the actual gig.

Navy blue and gold are two colors that go so well together that you wonder how anyone can screw it up.  But Michigan can, as seen upthread, and so can West Virginia.

I always found the Wyoming unis to be rather gruesome. Mustard and Brown, or whatever it is.

Not to leave out my own school, here are OU's ugly alternates.  Alternate universe, I wish.



They could be worse, but they're pretty bad as it is.  This is called the "Rough Rider" uniform, presumably to honor Buffalo Bill rather than Theodore Roosevelt.  Surely we wouldn't want to honor a war (shudder!) hero, so it must be Bill Cody, a self-promoting con-man/marketing genius long before Phil Knight was even a gleam in his grandfather's eyes.  OTOH, it might be for TR after all, as he signed the Oklahoma Statehood Bill into law in 1907.

You can't tell it from this picture, but the red on the helmet and the shoulder panels has a wood-grain look.  They tell us with straight faces that this is to honor the men (and women, of course) of the Oklahoma Land Run of 1889.  Many of them rode wagons, see?  And the wagons were made of wood.  It's such an obvious tribute that I missed it completely.

And, yeah, the "sooners" were the ones who sneaked across the start line the night before to scout out the prime real estate.

I don't mind when teams go ugly for a week, but hate it when they do it in a big game.  OSU-UM should not involve this crap.  Wear them when you're playing Akron or Directional Michigan.
