Well, we now went from having one of the coolest uniform is FBS to the ugliest. Thanks Nike. Please keep grey out of our uniforms. Our colors are Blue and Gold.

Gray goes a heck of lot nicer with midnight blue & gold than those black uniforms Under Armor made us wear 03-puke

Agreed. I liked a lot of the combos with US. Liked that they really used the Gold (yellow).

I didn't like the black either. But these may take these take the cake as the ugliest.

Worst ones were the 2008 or 2009 blues with the flame pants against WMU.
2012 Blue's with grey pants against Akron was pretty bad too.
2013 Blacks were bad but the large UT logo on the gold helmet saved them in my opinion.
Any time we worse blue helmets with blue tops and white pants in the past 3 years have been bad as well.

My two-cents;

Honda makes perhaps the ugliest vehicles among all the mainstream auto manufacturers. But nobody cares because it is a quality product.

When we win, nobody will care if we have grey, white, yellow, midnight blue or any combination thereof uniforms.

And Bowling Green has the uggliest color scheme in all of sports history... No matter how much they win, we will never be Pumpkin and Poo. So for the sake of arguing, I want good looking uni's on a good team if I can get both. Last season we had both.

Here are some photos from Twitter of players wearing the new uniforms. They look good to me!

The unis look okay on the players. The typeface of the numbers is a stinker though.

They look much better in these sets of photos than the grainy ones originally posted. Still not a huge fan of the numbering.

Marketing trick. First show you the really ugly, then the not quite so ugly looks good.

It's the looking at them that brings the pain, lol. They're like beginner underoos. Look back in the threads on this topic and you'll see I actually proposed they get Fruit of the Loom to make their unis. And they did. I just didn't know swoosh had bought them out!

They're not THAT bad but also neither traditional nor dynamic. It's like going to BG. They're the general studies of uniforms.

So, has AD's office published the values of the competitive bids? Nike is pouring out the cash even to mid-majors that were UA. IMO, AD sold his stock too early.
