New Uniforms/eff LHC Bill Snyder Master Thread

Canadian friend of mine just toured Morehouse College with a bunch of middle school football studs. They were there for a "Hey, get excited about going to college!" academic tour and at the end the presenter asked them where they wanted to go any why. 14 out of the 19 kids completely disregarded the academic component and said they wanted to go to Oregon to play football. Canadian Friend later asked them why they wanted to go there and they said because their jerseys are so fly. So that's nothing new, but any GPC'rs or Kansasstate.Scout.com'rs can just eff right off with that "But I like our traditional jerseys" garbage. Guess how many of these kids said they wanted to play football at Kansas State?  You guessed it, negative fifty.

Guess we should really start recruiting the Morehouse kids a little harder.

GPC tucks would assure you they just don't have the same intrinsic values or knowledge of the playbook.

SkinnyBenny, those kids all suck at football and LHOFHCBS would never offer them scholarships anyway. Let them go to Oregon so they can walk the runway.

Oregon is the gold standard when it comes to branding.  Their uniform combos helped cultivate that program's identity.   

But, to play the devil's advocate, just look at the SEC and big 10 for evidence that uniforms really aren't that important.  Badass facilities, national TV, exposure, and $$$ under the table are all much more important than having 450 uniform combinations.  I can't name a team in the big 10 or SEC that routinely trots out a different uniform.  Aside from maybe a handful of alternates, most big boy schools have a classic, unchanged uniform scheme.  Look at the top 25 and you won't find many crazy uniforms.  Ohio State, Bama, Stanford, A&M, Michigan, Notre Dame, Florida, UT, OU, LSU, Nebraska, USC, 3MAW, etc. etc. 

In my mind, we lose recruits to similarly situated programs (OKState) because of facilities, not uniforms.

OU.
UT.
USC.
Bama.

Like I said, some schools have an alternate.  Or maybe a throwback for historic games.  (see Nebraska v. Wisconsin).  But, the vast majority of big boy schools aren't like Oregon or OkState where they trot out a different uni combo every week.

okay i looked and you are right and i was wrong, but florida michigan notre dame ect all have multiple. and ou and texas have alternates that they wear on occasion. we have 1. 1 rough ridin' uniform. and no tuck talking point in the world will change my view that we need something different,, look how excited the players were when they got new rough ridin' gloves for christ sakes

Not to beat a dead horse, but no, OU and UT don't have alternate uniforms.  period. 

And I think an alternate would be badass.  Wish we had one. 

But, IMO, it's pretty moronic to say we're missing out on elite talent because we don't have multiple uni combos.

i guess we have a difference of opinion on what "alternate" is. when texas wears all whites thats not an alternate?

OU wore a throwback white helmet against Tech in '09 and got dismantled.  Stoops now refuses to tinker with the uni, according to google.
