I like the "throw-back" uniforms, but that was my initial thought as well... I didn't think "OMG! Ohio State," I thought "$@%& Louisville."

Meh- Louisville and UC share the same colors and many times throughout history had similar uniforms. It is not as if UA came up with a new design for us by borrowing off from UofL, they are taking the uniforms UC wore back in the late 50s and 60s.

I'm not complaining. All I'm saying is that I didn't have an instant reaction that the throwback unis look like "that school up north on 71." My first reaction was that they (the throwback unis) reminded me of Louisville.

Again, as a "Throwback" I love them. My favorite Bearcat uniforms would be the Black top/Black helmet (I care less about which pants are used...white/red/black) that we used in the 90's-2000's. But as throwback/retro uniforms, these are cool.

RE: Throwback Football Unis
I like the throw back uni. Just wish our AD would focus on our primary color - black - a little more. All my non-UC friends remark how awesome our all black unis were in the 90's and 2000's. Seems that the AD made a decision to focus more on white and red at times. uofl and osu seem to have adopted black as their primary color and at times our unis for various games. Dan Patrick once remarked he thought he was watching UC, when uofl had similar unis.

I'm with ya. I love black in our uniforms - the more, the merrier for me. I do like the throwbacks in terms of giving props to a particular era in our history but beyond that I'm all for the modern look. The throwbacks do look a bit vintage New England Patriots if you ask me:

Does anyone else find it interesting that uniform threads tend to generate a lot of discussion and banter?

Just win baby!

Not sure it will dictate uniform color, but I thought I read that all night games are blackouts this year and UCONN will be a ring of red. If so, that would suggest the black dominant uniforms remain the preferred look. I've always liked the black pants, white jersey, black helmets combo on the road but I did find the red/white combination used in the Military Bowl last year to be very distinctive.

They can wear any combination of the above so long as they beat UCLA; just win.

Notre Dame is one spot ahead of us at #2. Frankly I do not see any difference in their uniform from any other year other than some subtle number font.

I'm all for one throwback uni game a year, but not at the cost of looking stupid... like Wisconsin.

Yeah, it's the exact same uniform they always wear, just with a few stains from all of the old national writers having a crisis on the pant legs while writing their pieces.

Yup I thought the same thing. They should not be in the list since they are the same as always but since it is ND they are near the top.
