Arkansas unveils new football uniforms for the 2012 season (Pictures)
The Arkansas Razorbacks will have a brand new look next season, and we’re not just talking about Bobby Petrino no longer being the team’s coach. In addition to a new head coach, Arkansas will also have new uniforms. The team announced on its official athletic site Wednesday that the Razorbacks have been given a touch of the Nike Pro Combat treatment and will have new red, white, and black jerseys to wear during the 2012 season. The team also unveiled new helmets, which are shown below.
Overall, we approve. The Nike Pro Combat uniforms have come a long way since the uniforms Miami wore back in 2010. This is one of those uniform redesigns where you keep enough of the old swag but still introduce some modern touches to it. As Graham Watson of Dr. Saturday pointed out, Arkansas and Nike claim these uniforms have been in the works for a year but it is quite the coincidence that they’re being unveiled in the wake of the Petrino disaster that took place over the spring. There’s not better time than now for a change in image.
