Uniform Tweaks


Recommended Posts

Anybody else catch the practice uniform tweaks? Different font for “Auburn” on the collar. Block letters - which Harsin rocked a lot last year in his apparel. Also added an orange outline for “TIGERS” on the helmet crown logo.

I dig it. It makes sense. Harsin wants to promote an attitude of toughness, no frills, all business. Bold block letters says that.

I’ll be interested to see if any tweaks carry over to the actual game uniforms or field design. Wouldn’t be surprised to see block letters in the end zone going forward.

May be the exact font we had pre-under armour during the Tubbs era. This was used only on our away uniforms back then, but it looks to be the exact same as the new additions to the practice unis.

This was always the superior script anyway!

Yeo, that definitely means they are tougher with block letters.

Looks close. I’d have to go back and look and see when it changed from the Copperplate font that UA used to the block letters. I confess, I haven’t noticed if it changed last year or at any time. We’ve been doing the Auburn on the jersey for so long. 
 

That block lettering began in 2004, but it was only on the away jerseys. The home jerseys still had the AU circle under the collar. In 2005, they went lettering on both home and away, and then of course, UA took over and the lettering changed to Copperplate. I’ve always really liked the lettering - more name brand recognition as the AU circle just seemed too small. 
 

I still hope we can do some legit throwback unis one day. The ones we’ve done so far have been pretty pitiful. The 1957 attempt in 2007 against Vandy was nice but not well done. It was a home game - the should have taken the stripes off the home blues as well as taken the AU off the helmets. I remember seeing some 1913 throwback concept art that was really cool - would love to see us do that. Outside of that, I guess there’s not a whole lot to do, other than changing the face mask color which we’ve already done.

To be fair the 2007 throwbacks they did take the logo off the helmets.

I'm not a uniform historian/connoisseur or anything, but I would accept the mesh jerseys of Pat Sullivan and the 70's. 😁

The lettering shouldn't matter if they don't bring these back...

I’ll always be grateful to Gene, and like him as a person. That said, I’ve always thought something about him was off. It was seen most clearly through his aesthetic choices.

Never forget, he made us wear the tramp stamp.

It’ll happen 100% under Harsin if he stays and succeeds. His third game here he introduced white face masks. Boise was known for constant uniform changes. He knows we are a tradition school so the orange throwbacks might be a way around that. Just like orange face masks last year.

I'm gonna get flamed for this but I bet Under Armour could actually do a tasteful throwback rendition of the orange shadow number jerseys from the mid- late 90s. I know most people hate them but I bet with a current design it could look fresh while being a shout out to that era. Like a less fish-netty and a cleaner, tighter look

Is this where we are supposed to make a "turning on the jets" joke?

Yeah? You know people don’t randomly make aesthetic decisions, right?

Idk what to tell you dude. In modern college football branding is an absolutely huge element - from social media to uniforms to even brand slogans (“Auburn fast”, “Built by Bama”, “Row the Boat”, etc.). 

I don’t know what part you’re hung up on. Most HC make at least minor aesthetic changes when they take over a major program. CBH seems to be putting in some of his.

Maryland takes the cake with that hideous flag ensemble from a few years ago.

And the GatorSkin ugliness.
