Well... I'll be damned.
The red helmet looks like a wolf. Just turrible. Do what you gotta do, I guess.
So Kingsbury saw highlights of OSU last year, with Pistol Pete on the helmets, and though that Tech needs to do that too?
I like that black helmet in the front.
The more teams that do this, the less unique and trendy it becomes. I'm all for trying new unis for a few games a yr, just not wholesale changes. At some point it becomes white noise and recruits will stop being so impressed by it. So I say, go for it tx tech.
But if the goal is to get kids jacked up, I'm not sure those Tech helmets are a step in the right direction. Their design reminds me of the New Mexico Lobos. that's not a good thing. They look small-time.
They won't be worn. Just something to show recruits.
Nothing says "tradition rich program" like changing your uniform every 5 days.
Alabama wouldn't be nearly as successful if it weren't for constant uniform changes.
We actually have to win one of those first. crawl before you can walk, man.
The two white ones aren't bad, esp the one with the number
And when it comes down to it, we don't have the logos or colors to pull off anything like Oregon or even Okie State. Stick with what works.
I think the seniors should be given the opportunity to design the uniform every year and wear it on senior day. One game every year and let them make it as radical as they wish. Kind of a reward/thank you for choosing OU.
OU already uses white as a primary color, which limits a lot of what we can do when it comes to alternates. And besides the interlocking "OU", we don't really have any other primary logos that would look good (the Schooner one really doesn't look that great).
Why the **** do you need more than 3 helmets? Give them a home, away, and alternate helmet and be happy.
I don't see how it hurts anything to let our players wear different uniforms every once in a while. The only two arguments I ever hear against it are "Sorry, we aren't OSU. We have actual tradition." or "These aren't going to make the kids play better."
1.) Tradition is a great thing. I'm glad so much of our stuff (pre-game and everything) has stayed relatively the same over the years. But shouldn't the players be allowed to have a little fun once in a while? Do we really aspire to be boring stiffs like the Big 10?
2.) Nobody says it will make us play better. But once again let's allow the kids to have some fun.
White helmets with red OU on the sides would be a nice and traditional change of pace...
I think all the uniform traditionalists are funny.
1. It's a game.
2. Played by teenagers and college kids.
3. Who do not care about "tradition."
But, yes, we re so ****ing awesome because we have traditional uniforms. I take pride in this every single day because it matters so much in the scheme of things. Oh wait . . .
I think they're pretty cool, that's the way of things for a lot of schools to get kids interested in their program
Oregon started it, OSU did it, now several other schools are doing it
Some look good. The one's with the matador's look terrible. Almost like a wolf at first glance.
