This makes me worried about the "meaner Husky" logo.
Replace the black with National Flag Blue and the orange with red.
Home Jersey: National Flag Blue, White, Grey or Red
Away Jersey: White, National Flag Blue, Grey or Red
Alternate Jersey: Grey, National Flag Blue, White
Black is not a Uconn color
I don't care what the uniforms look like. I would pick them based on how appealing they are to players and recruits.
After all, they are the ones who wear them and win the games.
The orange with OSU made me immediately think of Oklahoma State. Other than that the unis are ok. Black for UConn? Dunno... I've seen some nice combinations of blue white and black.
I don't think these are bad. I mean they pretty much kept to the colors, just added a slight bit of bronze to the trim. Not really sure it gives a vibe of "strength and integrity and inspiration" so much as it is hard to find a color that goes with black and orange, but that is just me, I guess.
I don't much care for the stylized beaver, either, but again, its a beaver. You can either go realistic, stylized or cartoon. They went with option 2. It is fine for what it is. I think you might have a few more options with a husky.
UConnFamily, explain to me how grey is a UConnn color again? Because Basketball got paid to wear some uglyass grey uniforms for a game or two?
And I guess I don't get the multiple helmets. I think you can mess all you want with shirts and pants, but in football your helmet is your identity and I hate it when you teams make all these changes such that you don't really have one.
This one sells at the Uconn store... Would you like more pics of grey being our alternate color freescooter?
I thought the grey basketball uniforms were hideous. Wouldn't want to use those as a precedent. If I recall they grey on the football uniforms was supposed to be silver, though i give you that. But you have a point I guess. I just don't love it. Rather stay with Blue and White. My preference would actually be blue with while shoulders/white with blue shoulders like they wore in the 1940s. I saw a picture somewhere on a UConn website but can't seem to find it now. They also had video of a games from the period. I thought the uniforms could be pretty cool.
I guess we all have our own preferences, but that will not change what Uconn and Nike has in store for the program.
I even seen some grey on hockey jersey's!
Go back to the opening of the RENT & the football uniform do-over by Aeropostale. Weren't the pants gray or off-silver?
Our smiling dog logo looks antiquated now.
That must be their "throw back / retro" beaver look. The newer modern beaver look will be hairless or maybe a nice landing strip and a piercing.
I hadn't seen that. As far as I know the mens team hasn't worn grey. They had a very cool "Husky Head" Uniform a few years back. White with a large red&blue trimmed Husky and red and blue trim where the blue & white is on the grey one pictured here. The current sweater is pretty bland. I don't have a problem with a little grey or a little red as an accent, but I don't really like grey uniforms. Stick to the school colors for the most part. You want to use some other color as an accent, red, silver, orange, bronze, I don't care that much. Just don't over do it.
They were supposed to be silver but looked more grey. After that they went with white though.
