While some of the uniforms don't appear to be as horrible as their descriptions sounded in print, that is only because nothing could be as bad as they sounded in print.

At least OSU fans can take comfort in the fact that their unis are not as ugly as those of Virginia Tech.  Almost, but not quite.

While that may be true. This post could easily have been added to any of those three threads, thus bumping it to the top of the MGoBoard.  Several of these threads have already been deleted today for the same reason.  If this one survives, so be it.  At least it isn't the 32501.24th thread about the damn divisions today.

Sorry.  The Board moves pretty fast these days, and it wasn't covered in the first 5 pages that I saw.  This was, however, the first place that I have seen each team's unis covered in detail (not cartoon drawings of them, for example).

Feel free to delete away, and I humbly beg forgiveness for my transgression.

Oregon State, Miami and Alabama all have sweet combinations.....Miami's helmet is probably the coolest single piece to come out of the entire set. 

TCU, Boise State and Virginia Tech all look absolutely hideous. Watching Monday's game might end up hurting your eyes! 

The rest are meh.

I cannot believe OSU let Nike totally replace their helmet with something nothing like the original. It is interesting to see that PSU is not going combat. Gotta love JoePa.

on this one.  Stay tuned.  For some reason mixing college football and protecting our way of life doesn't mix.  Entertainment vs. War ..... ok yah.

On the gloves? Really, Nike? Really?

Why anyone ever lets the Nike design department anywhere near their uniforms at all, I'll never know. Furthermore... how do these things get approved? Is there some sort of contract stipulation where whatever Nike throws at your team, it HAS to be approved?
