Nike's new Unis
Nike unveiled their 2010 lineup of Pro Combat uniforms for 10 Universities this morning: Alabama, Boise State, Florida, Miami, Ohio State, Oregon State, Pitt, TCU, Virginia Tech and West Virginia.
TCU will be the first to wear the new unis with lizard-skin pattern over the entire uniform this weekend against Oregon State.
Boise State with their silver and blue will battle Virginia Tech in the all black from head to ankle (there are orange shoes…) on Labor Day night.
The Gators and their gator-skin design will throw them on in the World’s Largest Cocktail Party.
Bama and the houndstooth numbers will take on Mississippi State in November.
Miami dons “throwbacks” that are mainly bright orange, with green sleeves, green socks and, as Michael Irvin put it, money green helmets, against the Hokies on November 20.
The Back Yard Brawl will have both teams dressed out in the new unis. WVU’s uniforms harkens thoughts of a coal miner exiting the mines, with canary yellow shoes. Pitt has a strong theme of steel in the font shape and color throughout.
Ohio State will once again wear non-traditional unis against Michigan. This time, with all red helmets.
The Civil War will close out the new duds on both the Beavers and Ducks.
