Maryland's 1961 retro uniform to be worn vs. Penn State (2015).
October 20, 2015

Maryland will begin a new era by turning back the clock and going back to basics. It is pure coincidence that Maryland will unveil a basic 1961-inspired throwback uniform this week in the first game since firing Randy Edsall as head coach. Edsall’s tenure at Maryland was tied hand-in-hand with Maryland’s unveiling of the state pride uniform, a look that continues to roll some eyes but is actually one that has…

As has long been rumored and since confirmed, Ohio State will be wearing a unique uniform when Penn State heads to Columbus in a few weeks. Instead of the signature scarlet home jerseys, Ohio State will be joining in the alternate black uniform fad that for whatever reason excites dumb high school kids these days. Ohio State is expected to wear black pants and a black jersey, and now we…

On Monday Arizona State and Adidas unveiled their brand new alternate look for the Sun Devils, which they felt inclined to dub the “Be The Hammer” uniform. Uh, ok. As explained by the school’s announcement, the “Be The Hammer” theme is designed to honor the team’s tradition  of using a sledge hammer emblazoned with the signature pitchfork to break a rock after notable achievements during the course of the season….


OK, let’s talk about that Virginia Tech helmet

UConn took a gamble with their non-traditional approach to a uniform upgrade a couple of years ago. Now, as the program enters its second season under new head coach Bob Diaco, the Huskies have updated their look to perhaps be taken a bit more seriously. Gone is the husky staring right at you across the line of scrimmage as the Huskies now go with a more familiar side logo on…

Other than Ohio State, there may be no more successful program in the Big Ten than Michigan State. Wisconsin may have an edge in Big Ten titles, but it is hard to argue with what Michigan State has done over the last few years. Mark Dantonio has the Spartans on the right track and this fall they should once again be a tough out for anyone on their schedule. Just…
