college football fan's vote favorite best worse uniforms new unis


You are a huge fan of sports design, or you wouldn’t be here. NCAA football has 124 (Thx, crashcarson15 – Ed.) teams in its highest subdivision, with a total of teams in college football around 1,000 So, there is plenty to see. What do you like? What do you hate?

Take a look at our latest NCAA News and see what has been released in 2012. Which teams suited up super sharp? Who looks more like a kids bad custom Madden team? What’s the best? Worst?

Only on SL.N, want to know what your favorite new-for-2012 and most-hated uniforms are. Limit yourself to new uniforms for this year, so no “My favorite is the Crimson Tide because they never change.”  They must have had a significant, news-worthy new uniform for 2012.

Email us and let us know what you found. And tell us why! We will write up the answers, include the best comments, and even link to your twitter, blog, or website. Format your response like this sample:

Best: Spurberry College Troopers. Their new all-black uniforms are the best, because they use matte black on not just their helmets, but also brought back the sand-knit to make the jersey and pants flat. Also, that helmet logo is so dynamic with the holograms, it makes me want to lick my TV screen.

Worst:  East Northwestern South Nebraska Tech Kittens. These uniforms don’t match their whites between the helmet and jersey, the barbed wire stripe across the chest is a stupid gimmick that looks like it was sponsored by Brahma Bull EnergyDrink. What are their pants so short? I swear I can see ass-crack, which makes the brown color just out and out gross. And the helmets are so lopsided you can’t even read the them or see what the logo is.

So, that’s that. SportsLogos.Net is a site of the people. We wouldn’t be here if it weren’t for our amazing readers, so we want to hear what you think! We will name a “Best” and “Worst Uniform change for 2012.” We will name any others who get a lot of votes, any that seem out of whack, and provide lots of quotes from the emails we receive. So, let’s hear it!

What uniform do you wish you had, and wish you could bury? Send us your email and let us know!

Note: Only votes and input received via EMAIL, as stated and linked above, will be counted! Click the email link, and tell us what you think!

  • Best new NCAA uniform is definitely Maryland’s matte black helmet with “LED’s.” It’s modern and got some Nike-fication but it’s not overblown. It works.

    The worst is the Air Force black alt with the mini-bomber pattern. Just an abhorrent and ugly spectacle.

  • Nicolas Ballou-Perez

    Best NCAA uniform has to be Northwestern, the stripe makes a good impression and SDSU, they are a great upgrade for the Aztecs. The worst has to be Georgia Tech, honeycomb is a terrible idea Wisconsin and Nebraska, they look like hockey jerseys with the logo on the front, and Notre Dame 1/3 blue helmet with the logo and 2/3 gold is the most terrible thing to happen for a uniform and the pant stripe is too big.

    Best is the Virginia throwback with the shoulder stripes (clean and not carnival-like), worst is the Notre Dame ensenble they wore for the Miami game: what a grotesque nightmare, from the Transformer helmet to the horrible pants. Runner up are the silly little wings on Eastern Michigan’s sleeves that look like half digested chickenwings and the huge N on the Nebraska shirt with the soccer style numbers. All in all not a good year for college football uniform designs!

  • Ariadne

    Best: Northwestern

    Honorable Mention: Mizzou, Virginia

    Worst: Virginia Tech

    Dishonorable Mention: Georgia Tech, West Virginia

  • Chris Creamer

    Lets keep this ballot private, don’t forget to email in your choices – don’t post them on the thread here.


  • Badger Mike

    Yay for the Spurbury reference!

  • Go Troopers! 🙂

  • Ice_Cap

    Best? UNLV
    Worst? Georgia Tech’s honeycomb bumble wrap set.

  • Best college uniforms right now would have to be West Virginia, Oregon or Miami. Worst uniforms would have to be either Georgia Tech or Oklahoma State.

  • Boyee

    Northwestern’s are the best, Maryland and Oregon’s wild uniforms are the worst.

  • stets5150

    even though it wasn’t reported on this website, the new uni’s for minnesota are pretty cool. they ditched all that crap on their pants from the past few seasons, also now have pants in all 3 colors and the brick design on the numbers for the gold alt jersey look pretty shape. i do like the matte maroon helmet, but not a fan of the black facemask. and for worst designs, there are too many. oregon’s helmets are ugly with the wings on the sides and the “O” on the back of the helmets, and notre dame’s shamrock uni’s are just as bad. teams need to ditch the whole blackout garbage if black isn’t one of their 2 main colors.

  • Aaron

    I’d say the best so far are…

    Central Michigan
    Virginia (throwback)
    Northwestern (NCAA’s answer to the Habs)

    Any team that chooses to put a big logo in the fronto of their jersey
    Oregon (although creative, but too busy)
    Notre Dame (more the helmet)

  • Matt

    BEST= Texas A&M Uniforms (clean and sharp)

    WORST= Notre Dame Uniforms (why miss with tradition? You don’t see the yankees changing their pinstripes, do you??? NO!)
    -should’ve left it as is, at least the helmets (the gold they chose is too bright)
    -the alternate uniform is just plain disgusting

  • Reincarnation if Einstein

    Mississippi State’s snowbowl uniforms are awesome. They get my vote. Texas A&M’s black alternates and TCU’s new uniform sets should be honorable mention. Dishonorable mentions should be Virginia Tech and Southern Miss, and worst is obviously Georgia Tech.
