Uniform thread haters beware
 
Hey guys, so I know uniform threads are generally hated but I for one love uniform discussion. Since it's the offseason and all, I thought of a cool idea for our football uniforms. First let me preface by saying I love our uniforms now. Under armour really did a good job finally giving us a good uniform for our football team in my opinion. I was just thinking how cool it would be to change the font on the uniforms to the cursive font I've seen around the board some. I think that would be a really classy addition to our uniforms that would set them apart from other similar under armour uniforms. I realize that the new font is supposedly our standardized font but I gotta say I would like to see the cursive carolina rather than the font we have now. Of course I could be crazy but it at least looks cool in my head. Some other things I'd like to see, although I don't want to beat a dead horse, is the addition of garnet helmets and black jersey's to our uniform rotation. I know most people my age love that stuff, which means recruits would likely like to see some of that as well. What are some other cool ideas yall would like to see change on our uniforms?

Actually that's a reference to Byrnes high school! I didn't think of ole miss, although I personally like those. I didn't know if it would be well received or not honestly but thought it would be interesting to see other ideas.

I used to like the lightning bolt shirts some of our guys would wear under their uniforms. Then they started wearing the blue camo, which I didn't like. Now we wear neither. I wonder why we stopped wearing that stuff? I think it may have been a jinx. We've been a lot better since we stopped wearing it.

I love the Carolina script, but I don't think it would look right with the crispness of the bars on the football uniform. It looks great on the baseball uniforms though.

I'm with you on the garnet/black helmet option and the black uni.

:wink:

That's actually what got me thinking about it, the baseball team looks great.

Yeah I think football is better suited (har!) with the block letters spread all the way across. You'd have to make the script a lot smaller to make it fit properly, I would think.

(Insert obligatory comment about wearing pink tutus as long as we win.)

We need chrome helmets first.

Follow @Gamecockology on twitter; there've been a bunch of uniform design posts recently to keep you busy all summer.

I'll pass, but take George Goebel to block.

As much as I love the Joe Morrison script, I don't think it would look good on our helmets. I'm personally not a fan of Ole Miss and Florida's use of script on their helmets. It feels dated to me, and like others have said, it would be difficult to read. Maybe as a one-off for a special uniform at some point would be cool.

I would, however, like to see the JoeMo script on more 'retro' t-shirts and hats and what not. I think that it's a classic Carolina logo that needs to be used more often.

The Classic look or cursive text wouldn't mix with the modernized look of our uniforms... If you mix those two, it just gets tacky.

Just my opinion though
