Saw this over on TV's blog. Here is a shot of the new Under Armour jersey (supposedly). What are your thoughts?

At first glance, I like the darker blue (at least judging by the picture) compared to last year and also like that we appear to finally have a Valley patch that matches the jersey color and is not just a big white square on the shoulder.

Not a fan of the striping below the arm pits though but that may not be too visible with shoulder pads.

at first glance i'm turned off by them. although could be different story on the field. i just think under armour's a knockoff cheesy version of nike. at the end of the day it's only a football jersey tho :rolleyes:

I dont care what they wear, just so they win, wearing them. I would agree, but I would like to see yellow jerseys worn. If the Bison can win in yellow, why cant SDSU?

We can strive to be like the Bison in a lot of ways, but PLEASE not a yellow jersey. The NDSU yellow jersey could be the most god-awful pile of crap I have ever seen. (and yes I have seen Maryland's and all of Oregon's uniforms).

I would rather see an alternate yellow or white helmet, or bring back the white pants.

Yellow Jerseys with Dark Blue numbers and pants would be cool to see.. maybe as an alternate for Hobo Day?

Does it involve TOB being the nick mertens of SDSU?

Dont like the armpit stripes, still dont like the white outline of numbers. Blue with solid yellow numbers with no high lights or stripes or anything are the sharpest unis we have had with the yellow pants.

You mean the one with all the SD kids on it? just kidding. Is NDSU getting new look unis? or sticking with the uglies?

While I haven't posted a lot in the last couple years, I have been trying to keep up on reading the forums. Gotta weigh in on the unis. It's something I've been anticipating with a mix of excitement and fear ...

If the leaked photo is accurate, it's not bad. I like how the MVFC logo is more integrated rather than a patch. I like the yellow numbers edged in white. I'm not crazy about the yellow under arms or the rounded font. Maybe they will look better on the field. Can't wait to find out!

I guess I'm old school when it comes to uniforms, no matter the sport. I just prefer a clean, traditional, classic look with a few tweaks here and there every few years. Some have said "it's only a jersey/uniform", but it's also our brand. Our identity. When you look on the field or court, or turn a game on TV, you want to be able to say "That's South Dakota State!", not "Who's that?"

I'm not TOTALLY against alternate unis, but if you're going to do it, why not an ACCURATE top to bottom throwback? I pray we NEVER go to a yellow football jersey. Think for a few minutes ... does anybody realize how awful that would look? Augustana has all yellow football uniforms, top to bottom. Talk about a pile of crap! And it was visually painful to watch NDSU in the FCS Championship. Sorry, Nidaros: I don't want to look like NDSU ... we're SOUTH Dakota State! And don't even get me started on BFBS (Black For Black's Sake). Why can't we be unique by NOT following every fad that comes down the road?

Finally (I promise!), if you have an interest in uniforms, I highly recommend Paul Lukas' daily Uni Watch blog: http://www.uni-watch.com/ The leaked photo of our football jersey got a mention and link in today's "ticker" section!

I might just be a new age person, but I would drool over a Blackout jersey and pants (similar to men's basketball) with Blue OR Yellow helmets and blue OR yellow #'s, athletic tape... Say what you will be color has an effect subconsciously its been proven in study after study... Black with blue/yellow would get national and recruiting attention among just looking slick!

And yes, it is proven (ala Oregon) that jerseys can help a program or hurt a program(ala Baylor)

Is Baylor hurting? 8th for men's basketball and 13th in football isn't exactly hurting in my book.

On the topic of the thread, I don't really care if we wear hunter orange. As long as we win.

If we are going to get gaudy/non-traditional/silly with all yellow or all black, why not get an alternate jersey that will really stand out from other schools while celebrating our state heritage.

That's right folks, I'm talking about HUNTER/BLAZE ORANGE alternate jerseys with a pheasant on the helmet. That would create a ton of buzz around the program, although it would be pretty expensive for one game every other year or so. Maybe they could get some money from the state tourism department for promotion or something.

It has also been well documented that since Oregon went to their new jerseys it became national attention and recruits wanted to go there. As far as the camo jerseys. I kinda like the idea and they could be pretty sweet if they were well done and it would create buzz but there needs to be an all black jersey plain and simple.

How many recruits has Baylor gotten because of their colors that we don't hear about. Just sayin'.

I prefer sticking with blue, yellow, or white for SDSU jerseys. IMO, the all black thing is a little played out.

Here's another crazy idea. We are the jackrabbits, how about a gray alternate uniform? Gray is the new black anyway with several majors doing gray alternates now. West Virginia's (potential) new gray is shown below.

I agree with the bold, but I disagree about NDSU's yellow jerseys. Those things looked sweet.

Black uniforms would be awesome, great call. The basketball one's are awesome.

I know this is off topic of the football jerseys, but since our black basketball uniforms were mentioned ... Besides my complete and total aversion to BFBS (Black For Black's Sake) because it's not one of our colors ... unless you're sitting courtside or in the first few rows, you can't read the numbers. The yellow outline isn't enough. Not even on TV. And the Uni Watch blog I mentioned in my earlier post? They had a feature during the college football and basketball seasons in which one of the contributors picked his five best uniform games and one bad one each week. Guess what team's NCAA Tournament game was picked as not only the worst uniform game of the first round, but the entire tournament?


And the bad one: South Dakota State/Baylor (http://cache.daylife.com/imageserve/00gz1H4gSa6iD/x610.jpg) — *Sigh*…what could have been if both teams stuck with school colors…
LINK (http://www.uni-watch.com/2012/04/08/enjoy-some-philly-stars-baseball-on-jackie-robinson-day/)

If black is supposed to be so "badass", but EVERYBODY is doing it, doesn't that take away the "badass" factor because ... well, everybody is doing it? We should be feared because we're a GOOD TEAM, not because we wear some sort of clown suit. As for gray ... looks like something that was once white but hasn't been washed in 40-years.

That's good to know Nidaros. I think we should do a throwback uniform and make it yellow. Why not? This could appease the people who want to see something unique once in awhile, the people who want to see yellow, and the people who want to make sure we use our school colors.

Done. You can send the check to my wife.

For what it's worth, I like the new jerseys. They are a good compromise between SDSU's simple jerseys of two or three years ago and the overdone piping of, for example, NDSU's clown outfits. The sans-serif font seems controversial, but I think it's a nice change.

Black was just a suggestion, it would be contrasting with a yellow helmet and numbers...

And the grey would be a nice subtle break from monotony too...I know the bottom line is "win."

I just like the idea of shaking up the norm; simple things like alternate jerseys can energize a fan base, generate sales for the program, intrigue recruits and potential money that want the program to be progressive and hungry to energize the program for the future...just small things.

Maryland's hideous jersey from last years opener (the one modeled off of their state flag) weren't good by any means, but ESPN talked about it for a week and that garners residual effects throughout the program and the exposure to recruits and money (I think some money in that program basically said they would donate more if they stopped wearing those eyesores haha)
