Yeah I'm not a fan of ANY uniform that has matching solid color jerseys and pants.  Texas Tech often goes all-red, and Baylor goes all-green.  Looks pretty bad IMO.

I just wish they'd do more throwback unis than ultra-space-aged neon crap.  I remember the Lions (NFL) with Barry Sanders going with the plain silver helmet, blue jersey, silver pants with no stripe, and blue socks....looked sharp.


I imagine most teams wore tan or beige pants way back in the day.  That would be interesting.  School-color jersey with tan pants and long, team-colored socks.

For obvious reasons I'm a longtime fan of the all-white stormtrooper road uni look, but I could definitely do without the wide maroon collar and "row the boat" helmet inscription.
canoe paddles and "row the Boat" do not belong on football helmets

Look upthread for the pic of the uniforms UW will wear next week. Looks like Khaki pants.. Maybe Harbaugh would like it. I do not.

In 1994 they did a bunch of throwbacks for the NFL's 75th anniversary.  Detroit kept theirs for Thanksgiving Day only, until they introduced the black jerseys.  Then those were their Thanksgiving jerseys, until they scrapped those totally.  But they didn't go back to the throwbacks.

I think the Packers, Bears, Jets and Eagles had similar throwbacks.

I was hoping we'd see something this year for 100, but so far, no.

If they have to do with your mascot, meh.  It has nothing to do with a Gopher.  Like Boiler Up is stupid, but at least it sort of makes sense.  Bear Down for Arizona is dumb (some player said it before dying in like 1920), but if Baylor did it I could a little get on board.

I too am a big fan of the road white look. My guys use it too, with very rare exception (red pants).
Same.  That's why I've long wanted MSU to do a flipped uniform, and it took until 2017.

I'm not a fan of the Huskers going all white.

but, it's much better than some alternate looks in the past and obviously coming in the future

Didn't like when Adidas put side stripes Nebraska and Notre Dame.  Seemed radical and ugly at the time, now it's just ugly

I actually liked both of the recent throwback unis for Nebraska; last year's had pants that really looked cream (Yay the Scarlet and Cream) and I just liked the overall look of the throwbacks to the 62 uniforms.
