I don't really follow football that much, but were VaTechs New uniforms designed by Hellen Keller with assistance from Tommy the pin ball wizard? And if you are going to wear something like that a least be kicking someone ass to make up for it.

Worse than Oregon? I gotta see this...

ETA: Yeah, they're pretty bad. Even worse than Army's ACU jersey but not quite as bad as Oregon.

When did purple become an official tech color? The decals on the pants look like the ones on my kids bike, maybe they got them from walmart too.

Love Army's camo jerseys. VT's suck. The flat black on the helmet is pretty cool though.

lol, I asked my dad when I tuned in who was sponsoring the 'design a uniform worse than Oregon' contest.

No, Oregon's green and yellow uniforms are much, much, worse. I think VT's uniforms actually look pretty good tonight but I may be in the minority on this.

Any pics for us without cable?

Hey waitaminute. Our uni's are the worst in Division one. Va Tachs aren't even close.

I actually really like Va Tech's jerseys.

This artist rendition doesn't do its heinousness justice:



By the way, apparently Nike calls it their Pro Combat uniform.

They're bad. Real bad.

Of all the VT stuff hanging in my closet, none of it has black on it.

WTF???
Link Posted: 9/6/2010 6:12:34 PM EDT
Those look rediculous.

You're in the silent majority man... I like them, the helmets look fucking cool. I think they're more matte than glossy so they remind me of my AR15.
Link Posted: 9/6/2010 6:17:12 PM EDT
I like them, they look good to me.

I wish I could do a screen grab. You have to see these in HD. The photos just do not do them justice and I do not men that in a good way.

My first thought when I saw them take the field was that their uniforms looked just like the wrappers on a common type of candy that used to be passed out on Halloween to 'trick-or-treaters'. I think it was some kind of peanut butter candy. I'm sure many of you will grin like I did when you make the connection.

About 30 seconds into that game i said "fuck, I guess all the ACU in the world still doesn't make us good at football". At least I got a cool hat.

So wait, they aren't maroon/golden?

Tron numbers.

Yeah, Those uniforms are fail. But the helmets are cool.
Link Posted: 9/6/2010 6:45:20 PM EDT
It is what it is. Part of it has to do with the school colors. I went to a school that had burnt sienna (i.e. brown), orange and white as the school colors. Team sport uniforms didn't look that great.
Link Posted: 9/6/2010 6:51:29 PM EDT
eh the Ducks have worn worse
Link Posted: 9/6/2010 6:56:44 PM EDT
The designers at Nike have lost their mind. I've come to the point where I absolutely can not stand Nike designed gear.
Link Posted: 9/6/2010 6:59:42 PM EDT
ehhh......they look cool to me.
Link Posted: 9/6/2010 7:08:18 PM EDT
I thought they were pretty fugly looking too.
Link Posted: 9/6/2010 7:09:35 PM EDT
Maybe they lost a bet?

I liked VTs uniforms... And I am a BSU fan. I thought they looked great, much better than BSU's new uniforms.

Yeah, but I read that BSU's were one off's for this game.
Link Posted: 9/7/2010 5:06:03 AM EDT
As a VT student I like the uniform.
Link Posted: 9/7/2010 5:49:46 AM EDT
I liked the look of the matte black helmet. The rest, meh
Link Posted: 9/7/2010 6:00:30 AM EDT
VT's uniform really didn't look that bad in person (as opposed to the TV screen). Actually, I rather thought it looked better than BSU's "away game" uniform they wore last night.

Great game to see in person. VT's fan base was really animated. First time to an NFL stadium, and well worth the 6 hr drive (but damn, was the parking situation a mess). Even got to see two of my neighbors from Boise. Small world, heh?
Link Posted: 9/7/2010 6:00:54 AM EDT
I can't believe no one commented on Boise State's unis. They aren't even BSU primary colors. They weren't symmetrical (notice one sleeve is blue and one is gray with orange trim). SOME of the players had darker gray trim and I'm pretty sure not every jersey had this. BRUTAL.
