New Nike Combat Unis leaked: Final Word.


Nike is rolling out a new line of uniforms for 10 schools in college football. The jerseys are 25% lighter than the current ones and Nike claims that not only do they not hold moisture, but they are actually lighter when wet than the current model when dry. They also have a built-in flack jacket which is cool and provides some extra padding (I guess).

I’m a sucker for unis, love to read Uni-Watch and am one of the only people that actually like Oregon’s jerseys year in and year out. Just the sheer number of combination to choose from (2,456!) gets me all hyped up. That’s why I’m so into this kind of new release of jerseys.

They are also issuing new gloves which are actually extremely awesome. Note the Mizzou team slogan “Beast Mode” in the wrist straps.


Mizzou Combat Gloves

Overall, the new Combat Unis are bad-ass with one major exception: Missouri. Why the hell would Nike design a uniform that doesn’t include the dominant color of the school? The helmets are also new and hopefully they threw in some gold on the “M” but how can we really know until the team comes out on the field vs Kansas at Arrowhead on the 28th? They couldn’t be worse than the hideous gold uniforms used last year.

A few of the teams jerseys are just way to plain with the white on white but keep the basic team colors in mind. Now onto my favorites and least favorites. Damn, I feel like a loser for critiquing what just turn out to be clothes. Whatever.

Best: TCU Horned Frogs


I’ve always liked TCU’s jerseys and these are no exception. They’re absolutely badass (as if I haven’t used that word enough in this post) and are all-around better than the others. Check out the helmet at the official website here.

Battle for the state of Florida uni-style:

Have to give this to UF just because their team colors are overall better. I don’t know why they didn’t incorporate the coloring on the Miami numbers into all of the new Combat Uni’s. It looks a lot better and they could have at least done this for the Mizzou jerseys. The FSU color on the jersey and pants just looks retarded and I’m pretty sure the guy has a boner.

All the rest are pretty in-sync with the regular jerseys apart from the “technology” upgrades. Here are the rest.

    I really like the current away/traveling whites; they look good and the Tigers have played great in them at CU and KSU; stay with those. I do not like these that are being modeled in this communique. The gloves are fine.

    One man, one vote. Go Tigers!!!!!
