Photo: Blue endzones!!!

Endzones look perfect. Notice the font change.

This is our official Nike font. The first change in endzone lettering since the longtime design that was just removed was installed in 1982.

I like it...most people on Twitter seem to be split. It'll be nice to hopefully look back on highlights of a championship season with the distinctive end zones.

Looks good to me. Maize is a bit dark, but appears to be in line with the current color scheme. I'm glad they aren't trying anything fancier, like white outlines or football helmets or logos. Nice and simple.

Yes. It is significantly darker than the maize that characterized the football uniforms in the Carr years. It is not as dark as the last year of Adidas, which was borderline orange, but it is still too dark. 

The major difference is that now all teams have basically the same maize, whereas in the Carr era and earlier the maize on the football uniforms was a lighter (and in my opinion superior) color than the color used by other major teams. Most notably the hockey team, whose maize uniforms actually clashed with the helmets that were painted to football spec.

Very nice!  In this case, change is a good thing.  It's looked the same for so many years, this will really add more visual interest to the whole field.

A note: This shows the layout of the lettering. It is "floating" and hasn't yet been stitched into the endzone (looked at the point of the M, for example). It should look a hair sharper when finished, though it's possible that the lettering may dull in luster somewhat when the infill is rolled in.

Maybe its just my OCD... but the text doesn't look like its centered up/down in the endzone. More blue underneath the word.
