Pitt and CSU are great (Pitt should be that all the time).  The Houston ones look fine, but I'm generally against black unis if black is not a school's primary color.  The rest are god awful.

Agree. Pitt really should go back to those. I actually pulled all of those off a list. Iowa's were fine nothing spectacular other then that was the ass beating of Ohio State I believe.

Number font is bad, swords on the shoulders are bad...not impressed.

Hey, the Gators have awesome designs and a ton of people wear the gear. I think they were selling some Gator skin stuff so tried it, but the "swamp green" turned out too grey/brown for me. Horrible how it turned out, looked even worse getting beat by aggy in the swamp that game. Hopefully Jumpman comes with some good retro looks next year, their color scheme is awesome no need to fuck around in swamp green.

I'm glad the Titans changed. Now they look like the shitty team they were meant to be there. Fuck you Bud Adams.

I hope to one day see the Texans come to their senses and scrap their silly name and look and go set things right.

Or the Texans could troll the fuck out of bud Adams and the titans and debt and themselves the Eulers (pronounced like 'oilers' for you non-math nerds).eulers-spinning-disk-toysmith.gif

The Titans own the Oilers logo so the Texans can't do that.  It's annoying as fuck. 

And Bob McNair won't do shit.  He is so damn vanilla and has no balls.  It honestly wouldn't be that complicated to take his current shit and make it way cooler.  Change Texans to Texians.  Go with a Texas Revolution type theme like the Patriots do for the American Revolution.   Logo could be a stylized cannon paying homage to the CATI flag and cannon from Gonzalez.  Or go with a design like Dimmitt's flag at Goliad.  Or incorporate the San Jacinto monument into the helmet design.  Lots of options.

In all seriousness though, make the fucking uniforms burnt orange, not okie lite orange.

Speaking of New England, they and some of the old NFL/AFL unis were so nice. The Patriots should go back to this one. I know they lost a lot in them, but they looked very sharp. Denver also is another team that should go back to its classic look.

A few more candidates of who should switch back. (Pats are at the top of my list)

Taking the aforementioned Broncos and adding in the Bucs,

That picture of Alvin Harper was the last known sighting of him after he left the Cowboys, right?

Pitt is rumored to be heading back to the old uniforms. The only thing I would do is tone down the yellow a bit and the blue stripe on the pants needs to be a bit wider. When you see the recruiting Tweets that Narduzzi puts out the kids are always in the throwback colors.

As much as we all hate the Patriots that old uniform was infinitely better than what they wear now. The Dolphins too should go back to the classic look. The Broncos uniform was better too before the switch. I really like the Falcons red helmet much more than the black.

 

Oh, and to go from the wonderful Oilers uniforms to that shit is amazing. People get paid to design that shit.

I'd love to see the Skins bring this helmet back...

And the Eagles bring this uniform and helmet back...

I get it with nostalgia and all, but the Eagles and Redskins are both better now.

What’s pissing me off is all these teams (NFL and MLB) looking like they’re wearing slow pitch softball uniforms. Browns, Bucs, and Titans.

Oilers were so perfect for Houston.... but you're right. It'll never happen.

I do like your idea about the texas revolution theme. That would be the tits.

But that'll never happen either.

The current socio-economic breakdown of Texans fans would most likely object to any reference of Texas independence much like when MLS rolled out a Houston franchise. 

https://www.chron.com/sports/dynamo/article/Houston-soccer-team-will-86-its-1836-name-1881955.php

So we're stuck w/ bull, a meaningless name, and a team that reflects that identity. 

Quote

Houston soccer team will 86 its 1836 name

Team will 86 its 1836 name
Moniker tied to Texas history lasts just a month for soccer franchise

BERNARDO FALLAS, Copyright 2006 Houston Chronicle 

Published 6:30 am, Wednesday, February 15, 2006

If you're one of the thousands who went out and bought a Houston 1836 T-shirt, run to your closet, bag it and hide it in a safe place.

If you don't have one, hurry to a nearby sporting goods store. The shirts are about to become collector's items.

Why? You might say the team is having an identity crisis.

Harris County Precinct 2 Commissioner Sylvia Garcia said Tuesday that Philip Anschutz, owner of the Anschutz Entertainment Group, which in turn controls 1836, confirmed that a name change is in the works for the Major League Soccer franchise.

"He (Anschutz) indicated that they (AEG) were strongly considering a name change, and before the weekend was over they committed that they would be doing it." said Garcia, whose director of communications, Paul Mabry, met with Anschutz over the weekend in Los Angeles. "I've confirmed that (that they would change the name) today (Tuesday) with the owner, Philip Anschutz, who's the CEO of the Anschutz Entertainment Group. I suspect we'll be hearing an official announcement very soon."

A person close to the situation said "Lonestar" or "Lone Star" looks to be the team's next name. Choices such as Apollos or Mustangs also are being considered, the person said. An announcement is expected no later than Tuesday.

News of an impending name change might catch fans by surprise, but such a radical measure had been demanded by many in the Mexican-American, corporate and political communities since the team's unveiling of 1836 and logo Jan. 26.

 

The name also has been the subject of debate and scrutiny by the Spanish-language media.

Neither MLS nor 1836 president Oliver Luck could confirm Garcia's assertion, saying only that no decision has been made. Calls to AEG went unanswered Tuesday.

"We're leaning toward changing the name," Luck said. "At this point, a final decision hasn't been made.

"We've listened to concerns that people have within the Mexican-American community, in particular, and we're giving it due consideration. It's a complicated decision, obviously, which involves a lot of different parties (including) the league and the owner."

Not universally accepted

Many Hispanics have voiced their dislike for the controversial name, claiming it carries an anti-Mexican sentiment and lends itself to be a divisive tool among Houstonians.

Although 1836 was meant to symbolize the year Houston was founded, it also has links to other significant events some Mexican-Americans might find offensive. Those include Texas' independence from Mexico, the Battle of the Alamo and the defeat of Gen. Antonio López de Santa Anna's Mexican army at the hands of Gen. Sam Houston in the Battle of San Jacinto during the Texas Revolution.

The logo, a star with "Houston 1836" emblazoned on it, depicts a silhouette of Houston riding a horse.

"We believed, and many people still do, that 1836 was a great name because it symbolized the founding of the city, and we thought people would rally around that," Luck said. "But obviously we hit a bit of a raw nerve within the Mexican-American community."

Garcia, who initiated the dialogue with AEG, had been one of the more vocal elected officials to echo the feelings of Hispanics.

"While I have been an ardent supporter of bringing professional soccer to the area, I have privately and publicly encouraged the organization to strongly consider a more appropriate name, one which is free of controversy and embraced with enthusiasm by all segments of the community," Garcia said in a release last week.

MLS is sorry

If 1836 hasn't been ditched, the league seemed apologetic to those who claim to be offended.

"The bottom line is that at no time did the team or Major League Soccer ever want to offend any members of the Houston community," said league spokesman Dan Courtemanche. "We certainly apologize to those who feel wronged or insulted. We're listening to their concerns, and we're carefully analyzing the situation. We want everyone to be part of Major League Soccer in Houston."

The name 1836 was the leader in an online poll conducted after AEG announced the move of the franchise, known as the Earthquakes, from San Jose, Calif., in December.

Of more than 11,000 hits, 1836 garnered around 20 percent, or around 2,200 votes, a team official said.

The franchise has a history with names. A charter member of MLS, it was originally called the Clash. The name changed to Earthquakes in 1999.

We have a brand new team. Let’s choose the most generic team name and declare our colors be red, white and blue.
