Nike shows off Alabama’s BCS Championship uniforms

To the naked eye, Alabama will appear to be wearing their standard uniforms next week when the Crimson Tide take on Notre Dame for their second straight BCS championship. But upon closer inspection you will see that Nike has given a couple of new tweaks to the Alabama Pro Combat Hypercool uniform. According to Nike, Alabama’s uniforms will be specially designed to improve temperature control  keeping Alabama players cooler than any uniform designed by Nike before….


Rutgers takes on knight in shining armor theme with new uniforms

Rutgers gets new uniforms from Nike Yesterday Rutgers became the latest football program to receive an upgrade in uniform from the folks at Nike. Taking the Pro Combat style, Nike has taken away the plain red helmet and replaced it with a shiny dome, with the idea of making Rutgers football players resemble a knight in armor’s helmet. Rutgers will have three uniform combinations, with the traditional red pants and jersey for home games, all…


First Look: Oregon’s 2012 Rose Bowl Uniform

Oregon to go all-black for Rose Bowl The Oregon Ducks, surprise surprise, are going to wear a specially designed Pro Combat uniform from Nike when they take on the Wisconsin Badgers in the Rose Bowl January 2. Nike released the photos today and it looks as though Oregon will be suiting up in all-black for the game, with a trim around the numbers and for the player name on the back of the jersey. Honestly, these are…


Stanford Nike Pro Combat Uniforms

Stanford looks for dark, ominous feel Stanford’s Nike Pro Combat uniforms are darker and I suppose are to be menacing to their opponents. Basically Stanford will be waring a slightly darker shade of red for their uniform and will have black numbers with white trim. Most notably, the helmet is black with a red “S” on the side. Stanford has become more physical on the field with the likes of Toby Gerhart and Andrew Luck…


Ohio State Nike Pro Combat Uniforms

Ohio State gets the Georgia helmet Ohio state has another Pro Combat uniform this season and I’m still trying to figure out what is going on with the gloves. But look at the helmet. It is essentially the same design as the maligned Georgia helmets, except for Ohio State it looks a little better with it being closer to the original OSU helmets. The stripe down the middle is fattened up and black numbers are…


Michigan State Nike Pro Combat Uniforms

Michigan State honoring South Florida? Georgia’s Nike Pro combat uniforms were not received well, and this is the uniform I am most interested in seeing in terms of fan feedback. At first glance I thought I was looking at a South Florida uniform, or perhaps one of Notre Dame’s green uniform combinations. Gold numbers and gold helmets for the Spartans? It just doesn’t seem like a good mix for me. I would have preferred to…


LSU Nike Pro Combat Uniforms

LSU goes for white look The gloves are pretty cool, but I have never been a big fan of the glove designs in general. They look cool though on TV and that’s what gets the kids excited. But I like the look of LSU’s Pro Combat. Once again, it appears that Nike took a somewhat safe approach with this year’s uniforms, and LSU’s is the latest example. Unlike Boise State, LSU will wear a white…


Navy Nike Pro Combat Uniforms

Navy wears a white helmet with an anchor logo I love that Nike made sure to use and place emphasis on the anchor for the Navy uniforms. I also kind of like the white helmet and anchor logo. I will say that I think the uniforms worn for the Army Navy game in recent years is a bit more stylish and does a better job of recognizing the Marine Corp, but the MArines don’t play…


Army Nike Pro Combat Uniforms

Army Nike Pro Combat uniforms look solid I have to say, I am happy that Nike did not mess too much with the Army football uniforms. It really does look very similar to a traditional uniform, except for more gold in the lower body with the shoes and socks. From a design standpoint, it is sharp and classic. It is a safe Pro Combat design, and for a program like Army that is something I…


Nike Pro Combat uniforms making high school debut

Euless Trinity to be suited in Pro Combat uniforms from Nike The Nike Pro Combat uniforms have been a hot topic in college football circles for the past few years, including this season. Georgia’s have left some wondering what they were thinking while the Oregon and Boise State uniforms have been well received. We’re still waiting to see what other schools such as LSU, Stanford, Ohio State, Army and more will be wearing. We’re also…
