Your team only. I'll start with UCF:

Mid 2000's, Russell Athletics jersey. Love the 90's-ish two-town numbers, the gold helmet with UCF "lance" logo, the multi-color trim lines, traditional shade of gold. Just really sharp.

How can something so recent be considered a "throwback"?

Throwback. Noun. A person or thing having the characteristics of a former time.

Not to mention this particular iteration has an older logo, older color scheme (pre-vegas gold), jersey manufacturer of two generations ago, playing football in a former arena, multiple conferences ago. Throwback.

UCF has really changed their colors over time........

Here's Cal in 1983. This is Ron Rivera after sacking an Arizona QB.

Solid uniform, no stripes, and the best part is the bear paw helmet.

Don't know and it doesn't matter, I'd still think it was Oregon's just like people would assume Michigan's helmet designs were created by them and not Princeton.

RE: Favorite throwback jerseys
This is an easy one for me: Pitt.

Pitt fans cannot seem to agree on the color of the sky, but pretty much everyone agrees that switching from these uniforms to the navy blue and Vegas gold uniforms they have been wearing ever since was and remains a terrible decision.

It’s literally been unpopular since the day they made it in the mid 90s, and people have been clamoring for a return to these uniforms ever since.

What most amazes me about this issue is how when I run into fans of other teams on business travel or on vacation or even at games, when the topic of my favorite college football team comes up, that’s almost always one of the first questions people ask. “Hey, if you don’t mind me asking, why on earth did you guys get away from those cool uniforms you used to wear?”

It literally happens several times per year totally unsolicited and out of the blue. I always just shrug my shoulders and tell them I have no idea?

It’s also true whenever writers tackle this issue for various magazines and when broadcasters do our games. You can pretty much guarantee at least once during every Pitt broadcast the announcers are going to bring up how much nicer our old uniforms looked than our current uniforms – in which we look like a cross between Notre Dame and Akron.

RE: Favorite throwback jerseys
I feel your pain, Doc.

Back in the 90s, Lavell referred to BYU's royal blue as "Otter Pop blue". The implication was that it was a little too bright & childish. Navy blue would have been perceived as more serious. At the time, I remember agreeing with him. Kids these days seem to think everything in the 90s looked like the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air & Clueless. But grunge & gangster rap were dominant.

Grunge is associated with poorly fit denim & dull earth tone plaids. This was something Amy Heckerling explicitly rejected when creating the character of Cher:





And ganster rap had to toe the line on the bloods/crips divide. So rappers like NWA avoided bold, bright, partisan, primary colors red & blue for more neutral silver & black. That's why Raiders/Kings gear was so popular. In contrast, Will Smith always projected a harmless, kid-friendly, carefree image. His big selling single was "Parents Just Don't Understand". So his sunny color palate on the TV show was a way of distancing himself from more bleak gangster rap.

Anyway our school is obviously resistant to change. We eventually made the switch to navy...just as it was going out of fashion. People say navy sells better because it's more neutral & less likely to clash with a normal fan's clothing. But the whole idea of a team color is that it's supposed to stand out. That's why Texas' butt ugly burnt orange is so iconic & great.

The rebranding of Pitt to Pittsburgh was odd. The Pitt logo was easy to read and identifiable as Pitt. The blob cat is awful.
