Football Uniforms

Postby OUG » Sat Jun 15, 2013 11:03 pm

We've seen a lot of mockups for helmets, but it looks to me like we may be going with a pewter/grey look next year (at least for a few games?).

New TE Commit Kendall Ardoin from Ville Platte on Saturday had this pic taken and posted to twitter:

and you can see the name plates above the lockers have similar grey helmets on them.

I don't know how I feel about grey, but I do like the idea of changing things up (for nothing else, to inject some new vibes into these guys heads and shake loose from the Toledo era for good). And for my money, the execution of the grey jerseys is pretty well done -- the shoulder stripes have a classic look to them, even if the rest of the jersey looks pretty modern. I could live with this.

OMG it never ends. Those uniforms suck. Our traditional uniforms are great and everyone loves them. It's not the uniforms,it's not the Dome, it's Tulane that's the problem.


Tulane didn't have a stadium issue it had a program and facilities issues. To the new President- we want a new AD , a football facility and an IPF. We want top 25 programs in football and basketball the only two sports that count.

Looks like an iron on shirt a ten year old would wear who's parents couldn't afford the sewn in number kind. This can't be a gameday jersey. It's downright ugly.

I hope that's just a practice jersey. Put it on the guys who need to step it up(The TB, RR method)!

That gray is terrible.

I'm cool with the blue helmets because its one of the original colors. We should only have olive, blue, and white in the unis. No freakin gray or black.

Heaven knows that they've changed the uniforms this way and that almost every other year but the best ones were the ones that they used during the Larry Smith era and I'll stick with that.

And gray would be okay for some use, say as part of the stripes, if it actually were one of the official colors, but since it's never been then I don't see the point of this except to mimic some foolishness that the powers-who-are must think is trendy.

Aside from the white helmets (which I like), those Toledo era uniforms suck. While I'm not advocating going the Oregon route, I see nothing wrong with being seen somewhat creative....kids like it (which we separately need) and it helps in selling merchandise. We are not tradition-rich like Bama, Oklahoma, LSU, etc so changing uniforms often is not sacrilegious.....don't even go there.

This.

Someone here uses a Roch Hontas photo as their sig pic and it brings a smile to my face every time I see it. Those were beautiful unis.

We have the prettiest, classiest color combo in college football. We don't need to be f**king it up with gray or black or anything else.

I think the Tulane classic uniforms are the best in college football. With that being said - we suck and have not had a winning season in 10 years - I could care less if we wore pink, orange and purple - JUST WIN BABY!!!

In the 2000s, players wanted black unis. Now, grey is the new black. Just the way it is right now.

I honestly don't care what we wear if they win.

For those saying it looks cheap, I guess I'd need to see some more pictures. Looks like the same stuff most other CFB teams that wear nike have.

They bear a striking resemblance to these:

West Virginia also has started using grey. Guys, White is not a school color either, and neither was black in the late '90s. Blue and green are the school colors, grey, white, and black are neutrals that we have paired with them in the past. It is not the first time we have worn gray uniforms. Grey has been a primary Tulane uniform color in both baseball and basketball.

I don't think I'm thrilled with them, but I bet the players have a say in this. And its a lot more important that we appeal to 19 year old kids than we appeal to anyone on here. I love our current uniforms, but they are a little dated compared to what the kids these days want to wear, which is the Nike Pro Combat stuff.
