Not sure what I'm looking at? Blues are ok, the dingy white and grey are terrible.

UG-LY. Shouldn't be competing with BG on ugliest uniforms.

The navy helmet is the only thing I like out of all of it. Oh well, I'm guessing they have the players vote or give input? My tastes are more traditional (boring?)...like actual school colors.

Of course, great play on the field will make me look past the uniforms.

I guess a million bucks doesn't get you much these days.

Picture quality is crap. I'd wait for judgement until Toledo officially unveils the new unis. Cal had a pretty sweet unveiling: https://twitter.com/CalFootball/status/8...0729796608 ... I do wish they'd make the Rocket logo on the helmet stand out more.

Hard to tell much from those pics. They will probably look a lot sharper in person.

I'm OK w the blue and white. some of the more subtle shaded touches will look a lot better on HD. i love certain gray units, but this is a weak design in the field of grays. we should always have a midnight blue and yellow/gold for big games or throwback nights. hopefully, they get that corrected with this set.

A gold uni could have been done in a similar muted style and be really impressive

I wonder if Candle wants to wear the grey in Ypsi

Too Bad the guy writing the article doesn't even know the colors...

Somebody tell him it's Midnight Blue and Gold, not Navy blue and yellow.

Why does the sports companies all want Toledo to wear gray????

Probably because 17-22 year old jocks like gray...

I've got a couple jocks that are at least 22 years old and they're grey where they haven't rotted away. You're welcome.

I love gray unis. I just hope they make the midnight blue and gold stand out to give it a really sleek look.

Michigan got 5 million in cash when they did their Nlke deal a couple of years ago.

Very similar look to Mizzou. The greys are tough to judge... I understand going with more of a space theme...dark grey on a 7:00pm night game against TULSA would be dope. But I'm not overly thrilled. The number style is nice. The rest? I'll have to see. The two tone blue helmets don't make much sense without gold on the pads? I'll wait to be critical.

Especially with that brilliant lighting in the GB. It's going to look like the numbers and helmet decals are floating in the abyss.
