I hate flat gray uniforms like those, no matter who's wearing them. But as long as we win when we wear them, I'll be happy.

Those will look good in MSG against the green of Notre Dame.

Not a big fan of the gray. If we’re going to use a color that’s not part of our uniform then I’d opt for black unis.

I like them. More importantly, I think recruits will like them.

These look close to black to me

Charcoal maybe

I like that better than the pale gray ones we've worn before,

Awful.

Not as bad as that the thrash our footballers wore in Morgantown last night, but awful still. White at home, red on the road.

And I see they've added that wonderful wood grain to these as well. Barf.

Since our colors are Crimson and Cream, I actually like the Cream colored uniforms that the team has worn a few times in the past. Those are sweet, and actually distinguish our actual colors from the straight-White that every team wears.

I still can't believe they changed the Paperclip on the helmets. I thought that one was sacred. I'll come around to the fonts, which are a little goofy, but the Paperclip will take me a LONG time.

Gray? Why? For recruits? If we're getting a player who comes here just for the uniforms we're getting the wrong kind of player.

That's a very broad brush you're painting with.

I changed to some. It was meant a little salty and little sweet. My apologies.

I have made this point on the football boards repeatedly. Who would possibly want a player who was swayed by the fact that we wore gray (which has nothing whatsoever to do with OU) for a couple of games?

But then I feel the same way about the Jordan brand connection. It does no harm, I suppose, but I'd like to see OU (and all other schools, for that matter) not be in bed with companies like Nike. Let 'em make good products and we'll select the ones that work best for us, period.

The real reason for all the different uniforms is simply to line the pockets of Nike and other companies.

Agree on the helmets

An unnecessary change

I don't think anyone is saying most recruits only come for the unis, but with today's kids, uniform diversity is one of many factors. These young kids play video games where they can change uniforms, create fantasy scenarios, etc. Our University is smart enough to keep up with current trends, ans stay in touch with the youth of today. Locker room perks, coaches who use social media, team cookouts and other functions at the coaches house, and all forms of technology are in play when recruiting kids today. Uniforms are a big part of it, like it or not.


There is a video out there of the football team seeing the new alternate uniforms for the first time. Their reaction will tell you all you need to know about how the kids feel about uniforms. Some of our recent best players were present that day....

Do they play defense?




I just think you reach a certain point as a program where you don't have to pander to the next best thing. I know I'm a dinosaur. I know the times are changing because I've seen some of the trash Notre Dame has worn in the past few seasons. I just hoped we'd be above it. I don't see Alabamuh trotting out new unis. I think our normal set was just perfect. I'm sure I'll come around to these goofy fonts and numbers (man does that 44 look bad, regardless of coverage) but I just don't like whipping around chasing the latest whim.

We're OKLAHOMA for crying out loud. Bring the Wood? C'mon!

Gray?! Baloney!


Sorry for the rant. This is a hot-button issue with me. I'm not some mouthbreather. I can acknowledge there is an other side to this. I'm up for a little debate here and there. But you're going to have to work real hard to convince me that what we're wearing now is an improvement over the clean look we sported against Auburn in the Sugar Bowl a couple of years ago. Our reds under those lights? Flawless.

I actually love the traditional look, being a Sooner fan from the 70's myself, but the new looks have grown on me. I don't mind the few alts we break out, I just don't want to become Oregon or os-who with their 1888888 combinations. I mostly agree with every point you made 04, but I also recognize the need to stay in touch with the kids.

The font for the 4 is horrible

Way too bulky. Looks like a 9
