Tennessee Tech Golden Eagles Russell new uniforms - front


Tennessee Tech is going into Oregon this Saturday, and is taking on the Ducks with their best shot… at crazy uniforms. The Golden

Eagles will sport new duds from Russell. Which look very familiar. As we reported at the first of the season, Georgia Tech showed some new Russell uniforms. These look quite similar. Perhaps started from the same template.

The sides have a sublimated Eagles head logo in a repeating pattern on top of a purple background. This pattern appears on the shoulders, the ribs, and down the leg. In addition to the pattern, the whole of it is faded out to white at the top.

The eagle head logo is difficult to make out, though it makes a unique texture.

Golden Eagles nod to their past with a helmet design “inspired by” the 1972 conference championship team. They will be yellow with white and purple wings.

The back shows the Georgia tech style textured nameplate. Though now, this may need to be referred to as the “Russell-type” nameplate. It was not made clear how the name will be displayed, but one assumes it would need to be white text. Even then, how legible will the names be?

How do you like the uniforms? Does it make you more or less thrilled in that they now make the Georgia Tech uniforms appear to be a Russell template style?

Will you be more likely to tune in to the Oregon vs Tennessee Tech game for the new uniforms?

    Just get rid of the Eagle head pattern everywhere and this is a decent set. Solid B.

  • i hope that when teams come out with stuff like this the fanbases have enough sense to not support it by not buying it.

    This looks like a horrible pyjama set! I would be ashamed to wear this outfit with the fading logo fabric, these are crummy, cheap looking uniforms!

    These are awesome, but still waiting for pro combat 2012 uniforms.
