Vanderbilt Football to Announce New Uniforms for 2012 Season

Vanderbilt football to announce new 2012 uniforms

Vanderbilt has put a pin in their calendar for July 11th to announce new uniforms, according to an email from the Vandy ticket sales department to select season ticket holders.

Vandy is a Nike school, so message boards are soon to be abuzz with fear of the worst. Vanderbilt’s black was already almost a tone of gray, so a charcoal uniform, a flat black helmet or the like is to be expected/feared.

Mark your calendar for the Commodore Football fashion event of the summer. On July 11, the 2012 Commodore Football uniforms will be unveiled at the Vanderbilt Barnes and Noble Bookstore from 6:00 pm until 8:00 pm. Check out the new look as it comes down the moving runway within the “official Commodore Gear Outlet” located in the 2525 Building on West End, right across from Centennial Park. James Franklin in a fashion show… surely you don’t want to miss that.

Second-year Commodore coach is almost assuredly not going to be modelling the new uniforms, but this statement makes one wonder if perhaps there will be some design that falls to the coaches. Colors? New logo?

What do you expect? A wild Oregon/Maryland design, or will Vandy stay more traditional? New logo?

    Who knows? Vanderbilt has always come out with new design for their unis…… we’ll have to see if anything gets leaked.

    I’m pretty sure Vandy never wore that combo from 2008. I could be wrong. They wore gold, but with black pants I believe.

    Hope they don’t do something crazy.

    What is wrong with a little tradition? Stick to the real black (so not charcoal) and gold and put the star with the V on the helmet. Let’s hope Nike does not mess this one up as they did with many other NCAA uniforms in both football and basketball so far. They sure love gaudy, over the top cheap looking bling uniforms with an ugly euro soccer twist nowadays up there in Niketown.

      I agree completely!! Cut out the piping, half one color & half the other, oddities, etc and get to the basics!!
