At Just a uniform question/ go easy
I had heard we were getting new uniforms/ helmets, kind of simplified Memphis stuff . On record I have bashed the striped helmets, whatever, we all have our own opinions. Supposed to be rescaled and revealed around camp opening. Anybody know anymore than that?? Go tigers!!

Haven't heard anything, but I'd be surprised if we see a "simplified" design. I think Norvell likes the flashy stuff because the kids like it, and he understands the importance of making the program look good to other recruits.

The recruits like them and that’s all that matters. I personally don’t.

Uniforms sever serve three four purposes.

--to please the players
-to inspire the players
--to look kewl on teevee
--to help players identify their teammates easily* post#7

Flash is better for Football..I vote flash and more flash. Even if some of y'all fogeywogeys can't let go of the good ole days, the football players are not into uniforms worn before their daddies were born...unless it's a passing style for retro day.

Let the players vote on them lol

Well, and the obvious purpose of helping you identify your teammates easily, so you don't make errors like throwing the ball to the other team. But I'm being a bit pedantic.

I pitched the idea for striped helmets a few years ago (around 2010 or 11) and was met with a resounding...no.
I had helmets designed like the NFL Cincinnati Bengals decked out in the Memphis Blue and gray stripes.

RE: Just a uniform question/ go easy
I initially hated the move to the tiger stripes on the jerseys when they had us vote on them, but I think they look great, plus the recruits and players love them.

Would be interesting if we have a true throwback uniform instead of just a throwback decal on the helmet.

Ugliest helmets in all football. At least the bengals were original, we have the title of copying the worst !

Germantown High's helmets used to use the Georgia Bulldog's "G" on their helmets...until the copyright lapsed. (see also Grambling)

I myself like the striped helmets...I don't care for the white helmets with stripes, however.

Well, I'm Ok with the uniforms as is but if you look at AL, UGA, Clemson & most of the top P5 programs they are pretty traditional & the success they have with players (recruiting) can hardly be argued. Again, I'm OK with the uniforms but I'm not looking for flash but maybe distinctiveness.

We ain't AL UGA or Clem. We need to attract recruits any way we can. lol

The best helmets we've ever worn were the gray ones with blue stripes we wore against Navy a couple years ago.

The Tiger brand differentiates their offering from their competitors'. Their brand is derived from who they are, who they want to be and who people perceive them to be. The most successful time in Tiger football history is done by "Striping Them Up".YOU CAN'T BE A TIGER UNLESS YOU GOT YOUR STRIPES. Yes, I like the stripes.

I'd have preferred the stripes over 'THIS UGLY'.
