**** no. no need for a poll.
negative. Unless they are planning to bring back the non italics logo.
No way in hell.
I'm just getting over the uniform fiasco that we had under the last regime. Let's stick with the classic look that we had when we were good.
Let them do whatever they want. Offseason/in-season uniform bitching drives Allbuffs traffic.
No. I think we have the uniform thing figured out just a tweeking is needed.
I think we should dump Nike. **** Phil Knight and Oregon.
It depends how much $ they're offering.
I voted for "None" but if the money is increased significantly, I might be persuaded to reconsider.
Beat me to it 96.
We just got a school wide update in 2007: http://www.cubuffs.com/ViewArticle.dbml?DB_OEM_ID=600&ATCLID=920540
All of the fonts on the different jerseys for various sports now match. Every other school is playing catchup, i.e. ASU and WSU of the Pac 12. We are a favorite of Nike and the only changes I see are for the basketball team, though I don't think they are necessary. The current Ralphie logo was created in 2005, and it is also beautiful.
We're also ranked #47 in merchandise sales: http://www.clc.com/clcweb/publishing.nsf/Content/Second+Quarter+Rankings+2010-2011 (out of over 300 universities)
Can you give me an example of a few college program's identity that you like?
michigan for 1...just move them back to something classic like the 2001 buffs jerseys or the early 90's throwbacks like last year
Michigan has the best helmet design in all of sports.
It's bound to happen sometime, money talks.
Colorado, Nike agree to 10-year deal extension
Embree says they're keeping the '90 jerseys for home games
I'm 180 degrees in the opposite direction. It's a blue helmet with 3 yellow athletic tape stripes originating from a butt shaped unibrow.
Can you say: buffalo wings?
ummm have you ever seen a CU helmet?
CU has the best logo in sports, but Michigan still has the best helmets IMO.
Your mom likes my helmet the best.
only thing nike needs to do is fix the color of the pants. Otherwise keep last years uni's exactly as they were at the end. The Pac 12 patch should be silver. Or find a way to incorporate the color somewhere.
I'm in the minority, but I'm OK with giving Nike another crack at it. They definitely have their fair share of hits and misses, but I like the fact that they seem to be on the leading edge of uniform technology (lighter and more flexible/comfortable materials). Plus like it or not, the athletes love this stuff and all the different combinations and it generates a little buzz and probably some additional merchandise sales.
As long as they keep Ralphie on the helmet, I'm good and if we don't like it, it will change in a few years anyway. Unlike Michigan, Penn ST, Alabama, etc, CU doesn't have uniform tradition. Most people seem to love the Mac era unis, but we had those for several years in the 80's and early 90's - not exactly decades of tradition.
I disagree. While true that we don't have the same tradition that those other schools have, we have established a recognizable brand for our football uniforms. I see no reason to mess with something that works. Keep the unifroms just as they were last year. No changes, except for the road unis, which need to be burned.
I like this helmut the best!
regardless of the type of uniform, I really don't understand why we can't have our pants match the ****ing helmets. It looks awful, its an elementary mistake, and its easily fixable. Which is probably why its so frustrating :lol:
