Missouri’s uniforms for their SEC debut were tigerific (Pictures)

Missouri made their SEC debut on Saturday, and it was clear the football program wanted to announce its presence with authority. The uniforms the team wore were, well, I guess tigerific would be the best way to describe it. There was an overwhelming amount of yellow between the helmets, jerseys, and stripes on the pants. The jerseys had stripes on the shoulders similar to the way the Cincinnati Bengals have it. And the oddest part of the unis was the helmet. The helmets had a new tiger design that wrapped toward the back of the hat. It honestly looked more like a firebird than a tiger. These jerseys actually kind of reminded me of the nasty throwbacks the Broncos wore … and that’s not a good thing.

Georgia Tech debuted its unique honeycomb uniforms (Pictures)

Athletic apparel companies are in such competition for attention, they’re going to great lengths to get noticed. Even Russell Athletic has joined the likes of Nike and Under Armour by unveiling some crazy threads. What you’re looking at above are the unique honeycomb-pattern uniforms Georgia Tech wore for their season-opening game on Monday against Virginia Tech. What’s interesting about these uniforms is that Georgia Tech’s classic yellow jacket logo is nowhere to be found on the jersey.

In a press released announcing the new jerseys, Georgia Tech acknowledged the change is part of an effort to relate to the new trend in college football.

“Uniform design is a very hot topic among student-athletes,” said Athletic Director Dan Radakovich. “College football players today want to feel they have the most modern, cutting edge designs in which to perform. The key is to maintain a connection to our history and tradition while providing the apparel that attracts the very best student-athletes nationwide.”

They also explained why they chose a hexagon/honeycomb pattern for the jerseys.

“The hexagonal pattern has become synonymous with Georgia Tech, as the shape is considered the strongest geometric object and used by yellowjackets to build their nests.”
