Please tell me they return? Now if we could lose the blood pants and go back to white or silver. We wouldn't lose a game.

Are you asking based on what they use during preseason practice? They've never worn the cardinal helmets at practice.

That's what I was thinking. Not many colleges use the same helmets at practice and during the games. The basic black ones work just fine for practice, and they don't have to worry about painting them or putting any logos on them.

I say stick with the cardinal helmets. I like them...as well as our current uniforms. Some people just can't accept change.

I like the uni's except for the cardinal pants. I think silver would look better....

That would look like a high school. Red on Red looks good.

I like the cardinal helmet, jersey and helmet. I was not a fan of the all black uniforms. I like them and hope we actually stick with a uniform for once. It seems colleges either stick with a helmet, uniform for years and make it part of the team tradition or they change constantly. We have been somewhere in between. The helmets from the 80's and 90's looked like crap!

I did like the jerseys of 2004 with the white stripe down the sides and over the shoulders. But yeah, we've been kicking ass in all cardinal, why stop now?

Keep the all card uni's but they need to change it up for one or two games with an all black version or a silver/gray with black and cardinal accents.

By the way I found a new helmet project site on another message board. Check out the Troy concept helmet. http://www.mghelmets.com/

I would like to see a concept design using the either the handled sword or the "T" sword

Wow, it looks like that guy might be the one behind those crappy generic Madden logos. There were a few good designs in there, but most of them were just plain awful.

Oh, and the cardinal pants need to go away.

Do we have any reason to suspect the uniforms are changing? Or was wesuck's comment pure speculation?

Same here.


So y'all are telling me that this:

TU Rob...I think you pretty much summed it up right there.

What we have now looks ten times better than what we had. You put us in cardinal jersy's with silver pants (some people just need to get over the silver pants thing), and we look like a high school team.

I disagree. I think that both the 2004 "transition" uniforms and 2005 blackout uniforms look better than the walking habanero peppers we look like right now. Are the new ones better than the ol' TSU days? Yes, I think so. But nothing beats the two aforementioned uni's.

The 2004 uniform plus the small "trojans" logo on the front would look great.

The all-red thing looks more high school than adding silver pants would. All black uniforms (if done right - I like Ark. State's uniforms) and all white uniforms are okay, and navy blue is slowly growing on me, but the all red uniforms just make us look like either a high school or something out of the XFL or the arena league.

If pant/jersey contrast makes a team look high school, then why do 18 of the top 25 college football teams do this for their main home uniforms?

I think we look original. Is that just me?

Give the Cardinal a few more years and some of these same people will be saying how dare we mess with a tradition. That is kinda how I felt when we went to the all black. The only cardinal we had was in the trim. Stay with the all cardinal!
