New uniforms?
Had extra time on my hands, as I often do lately, and started thinking about the first year in Protective Stadium (btw, can we come up with an acronym that we all agree with...Protective is a PITA to type). A new chapter is beginning. I think someone said Clark’s son designed the unis we’ve worn since The Return. They are awesome and have served us well for these 4 seasons. But...

What if we started 2021 with a new look? What would you change just for a boost?

Oddly, as I started this post, it’s hard to come up with much. I like the all-white, lids to pants, on the road...feel like when we wear the green pants and/or gold lids away from home it just looks off. I hate same colored unis at home, though. But that’s a personal preference...I hate them on any team. BHD must remain. Going back to the white tops I think we need to tweak the numbers to make them easier to see (and I think David Crane might pay us out of his own pocket for that).

Thoughts?

New uniforms?
When Mike Davis was here didn’t Nike send us uniforms in that yellow rather than gold? Or was us under Anderson? I think it was just on our home jerseys and Nike replaced them, but we had to wear either the previous year’s unis or practice uniforms for a game or 2.

Then there’s the green/black, “a2b” screw up where we had to wear the road jerseys from the year before the entire season. That was on us as they sent exactly what the asst. coach had ordered.

I’d like the helmets to say “Birmingham.”

Helmets are sacred and not an option. BHD rulez all. Unless we want add a stripe. I might like one like the Titans helmet: broad center stripe at the base that narrows to a point at the front. Two-tone grey (meant to mirror the sword). Maybe a green one for our lids.

RE: New uniforms?
Oregon uses the same colors as UAB but with their special relationship with Knight of NIKE, they (along with the NFL Seahawks) have experimented with less common shades of the two colors including GLOW type shades. Since they and several other schools use green and gold, perhaps we might borrow some ideas for our new uniforms for 2021.(At one time the old Sunbelt was nicknamed the "Green and Gold League" because so many of its members at the time had those colors)

I like the idea f having "Birmingham" in some form on our new uniforms. How do you feel about UAB adopting the Blue Star (and perhaps Ising it on our helmets) now that Carraway may be demolished?

If Carraway was a UAB hospital sure, but nah.

Wow. So BC’s son is to blame for the ugly home unis. I hope and pray we get new unis. Maybe BC should leave uniform design to the professionals. I do love the icy whites though and, of course, children’s harbor. With our logo and colors, we can do so much better.

I will vehemently disagree with your opinion on our home jerseys. Under Armor screwed them up this year anyway. But the info re: BC’s son was a rumble I heard...just that he had a hand in the design.

Jacob Clark had input on the 2014 uniforms. He was in high school, at the time, and UAB was a Nike school. He never designed any uniform.

Not so much the Jersey as it is the whole uniform. The pants are the worse part of the uniform for me .., that’s my opinion. We can do much better.
