Damn...those are pretty sweet!
Say what you want: robble robble robble...tradition...robble robble robble...get off my lawn...robble robble robble...change is scary...etc...
But those are SWEET!
Unless you're in our base burgling our burgers, I think you mean rabble.
Being a history buff, the inclusion of the map inside the numbers is quite cool. This is probably the first time I've ever looked at an alternate uniform and not shake my head over its stupidity.
While subject matter mad me sick, the ohio state uniforms weren't bad either.
Love the inclusion of the 1st Jack....but wtf happened to the helmets?
Navy is going to roll over Army...for the 11th year running.
Those are just slick. For all the 'traditionalists' I hope we get a uniform that cool in the near future.
P.S: The ones we wore against Bama were also pretty sweet.
What is the "Don't Tread on Me" shirt for? Do they wear it under their uniform?
Yeah, I think it's the undershirts, just like the map-shirt for the Army uniforms.
Navy always has sweet uniforms for this game.
How does this game affect bowls? Since it is after the selection.
Navy is 7-4 and already bowl eligible, and they are going to the Kraft Fight Hunger Bowl on Dec 29th vs Arizona State. Army is 2-9 so this is their bowl game. They are fighting for pride in the rivalry as uaual, but also, both Army and Navy beat Air Force, so the winner of this game gets the Commander In Chief's Trophy for winning the service acadamies' series.
My father in law went to West Point so I'm pulling for Army to get the upset, but it is unlikely to happen. On the other hand, I didn't see Army beating Boston College or Air Force coming either.
In a recent year past, there was an Army team that was 5-6 heading into this game, so their spot in their tie-in bowl was being held open for them in the event that they won the game, and when they lost it was given to a different team instead.
Really pulling for Army. Seeing them end the losing streak would be sweet.
Go Navy! Semper Fi!
I am ignorant, but isn't semper fi the marines?
Aren't the marines in the navy? and Go navy, beat army
No, Marines are NOT in the Navy. They are technically a part of it, but god help you if you suggest that to a Marine you do not know VERY well.
The Marine Corps is the Navy's land forces, it's run by the Department of the Navy and is not a "separate" branch of the armed forces in that sense. Annapolis grads choose to serve their military commitment in either the Navy or the Marines.
I do like the Army uniform. That being said,
I wouldn't mind having that Navy helmet in a case beside my maize and blue helmet. I like the gold.
I don't always like alternate uniforms, but when I do, I think those Army unis are pretty damn sweet!
Now get the hell off my lawn anyway.
Go Army! Beat Navy!
Looks like Purdue.
They kinda look like Northwestern's underarmour jerseys; the stripes on the sleeves are of similar design. I do like them a lot though, Nike does amazing work with their pro combat line.
The Army- Navy game is the only rivalry game that even comes close to Michigan- Ohio for me. I love watching it. It's a great way to end the college football regular season every year.
You want to see players leave it on the field? Watch this game. The tradition is great.
As bad as the wrap that camo gets.. That digital camo uniform is sick.
Personally, I liked these.
...these should be their regular uniforms.
Much better than those in the OP.
That is all.
Service academies are the only entities that need to wear camouflage on the field. Ever.
GO ARMY!! BEAT NAVY!! My nephew is a plebe at West Point and will be at his first game of this storied series....BUT he wears his maize n blue under his uniform!!
He's going to be a sad plebe.
One of my best friends did a semester at Air Force (he was a midshipman at the time) and he told horror stories about Navy week in Colorado Springs. He took it all in stride as good fun, but they went all out to make life tough that week.
Oh and also, the uniforms are okay but that undershirt is awesome, and I love when they do the long sleeve look with striped undershirts in general.
yeah i knew someone who graduated from the AF academy; the survival training course sounded awful
I should be supporting Navy, but fuck it go Knights
Go Navy! And somebody please tell Nike to find someone who was actually in the military to render the salute next time, instead of someone pretending to be a warriorzz.
over in afgo right now, so I have to pull for army.
Tropic Lightning! Go Army!
They look pretty normal to me. All black uniforms are pretty common with a lot of teams these days. I just don't see anything special about them.
No, you don't get it. Don't you see that guy in his check-out-how-intimidating-my-lats-are pose? His head tilted slightly forward in what would be a no-nonsense glare if you could see his eyes through the very serious visor? Knees slightly bent in a posture that says "I could attack at any time, yet am ready to defend myself against the slightest provocation." Light levels low enough to allow him to pounce from the shadows, yet high enough to allow the gold accents to shine brightly in a way they could never do in the sunlight. This guy's a warrior, man. That's what Nike uniformz do for you in a way that boring Army gray or camouflage or regular black football uniforms could never do. That's special enough for anyone.
When will this stuff ever end? If there was ever an indication that there is way too much money in college sports the uniform arms race is it. It's the same picture every time... Big whoop.
GO ARMY! GO NAVY!
...and screw the uniform haters. These guys can do whatever the hell they want when it comes to attire. PERIOD.
can wear whatever they want, they've earned that right.
Navy uni's are awesome!
Sucks and has dropped like 12 in a row to Navy
Meh. Army's uniforms have been going downhill ever since...
