Watching the Boise St.-Virginia Tech football game I found myself thinking "what the hell is Virginia Tech wearing?". These new Nike "Combat Uniforms" might be the biggest joke in recent college football history. The schools that currently have these particular uniforms are: Virginia Tech, TCU, Ohio St, Florida St., Oklahoma, Florida, Texas, LSU, Missouri, and Miami...see full list here: http://friendsoftheprogram.net/2009
-collection-with-slogans/. The think that makes these uniforms a complete joke are the slogans like: "fear the spear", stake our claim", "finish the mission", and "beast mode". Some of these uniforms are actually pretty cool like Ohio St., Florida, Texas, and Miami but some of them are just ugly like TCU, Missouri, and Virginia Tech.
What ever happened to the use of school colors for uniforms, it seems like every school now has a black uniform even if it's not a school color...I'm looking at you Va. Tech especially because so many schools have good color schemes already...again I'm looking at you Virginia Tech. I don't have a problem with the cool designs but when you try to make players look like robots you start to take away from the game.
