USC Gamecocks Unveil New, Clean Uniform

Written By:  •  Tuesday, August 6, 2013

The South Carolina Gamecocks have unveiled new football uniforms for the 2013 season, and while they aren’t as progressive as the uniforms that they wore last season (most notably during the Outback Bowl when Jadeveon Clowney became the first human to register on the Richter Scale by simply hitting another person) and are nowhere near as crazy as what we’ve seen from the rest of college football, it’s still pretty modern.

As you can see, there are a number of tweaks from last year’s effort from Under Armour. Stripes have now been placed on top of the shoulder instead of on the front of the shoulder. Pants stripes now run down the side of the legs instead of being placed on the back. One of the better changes would be that they also increased the font on the nameplates from its miniscule size in 2012 to a more acceptable and visible size in 2013.

Despite all the tweaks, one thing remains the same: The helmet. The Gamecocks have kept the same helmet design since 2000, holding on to that part of their identity throughout their many uniform changes, which seem to come fast & furious ever since they came under the Under Armour umbrella.

Overall, the uniforms are not the wildest thing you’ll see making its debut on the field this year, but it’s a decent and clean look for the Gamecocks as they take the field for the 2013 season. Do you agree, or do you think that they’re still a bit too abstract? Let us know how you feel either way in the comment section!

  • K.I.S.S. Keep it simple, stupid!

    Or in this case SMART!

  • wolfgangII

    really nice.

  • SV11

    Love it. It’s clean, it’s simple, and it’s modern. The trifecta for a great uniform. Plus, no extra accent colors, just Garnet and Black. Another plus, JUST ONE HELMET! Respect for the Gamecocks.

  • Aaron

    Keep it Simple Stupid or Smarty indeed. I think this one of few college teams who avoid the black jerseys like the plague. Especially since black isn’t part of their scheme.

    • Art Vandelay

      Are you kidding? Black is most definitely part of Carolina’s scheme. The Gamecocks colors are Garnet, Black, and White.

      • Aaron

        Okay, I just realized that. But what I meant was this team didn’t fall into the black jersey craze like most other college teams. And from a distance, the black outline is barely noticeable with garnet being so prominent. My mistake.

    • Seamus

      Black is a part of USC’s scheme

    Really nice, classy and restrained except for the tramp stamp: we all know what their nickname is, no need to show it on their backsides. Logos on the sleeves are really good, like to see that more often on other college jerseys as well.

  • Nathan English

    I can’t really see SC ever having “crazy” uniforms

  • Jed

    A lot better than what some of these college teams have been releasing or even trying to pass as uniforms for the upcoming season.

  • Nice uniforms. Not a fan of the team but glad to see the insanity of college football fashion getting toned down a little.

  • Much better. I don’t like seeing 18 different uniform combinations; kind of defeats the purpose of a “uniform”. While I’m not a huge fan of them I’m at least happy to see it kept simple.

  • Joseph Newell

    they will have black, i bet. Or do camo crap again like last year.

    • willyk

      No more camo please. All black ain’t bad. It’s BAD.

  • Allan W.

    It’s hard to screw up jerseys with that color pattern. Nice and simple.

  • willyk

    Add the chrome helmet to all black and some attitude.
