    Hey guys, we could put bubble wrap inside the numbers and would be like a 3-D effect, like wow, and the 5 star recruits would be kicking down the doors trying to get into Tech.

    I just had an idea (borrowed from Alabama Fans). We could all get Honey Comb cereal boxes and put them on a stick, bring them to the football games.

    Can you just imagine how intimating that would be to the opposing team. Like wow man, just imagine.

    I am glad there is still some sanity out there. It's so unbelievably bad, I still can't believe that these are actually THE 2012 uniforms. What the hell are the people at Russell smoking? Did they let the interns get stoned and design our uniforms? Or did they just figure it was a great way to get their name out there, any publicity is better than no publicity right? We need to RUN from Russell. They can't even match the gold on our helmets. How hard is it? Don't they have computers or something to match hues? Or the good ole fashion eyeball test?

    Do you want to know how bad Russell is? These are their collegiate football teams under contract:


    Chapman University
    Coastal Carolina University
    Colorado State University
    Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets football
    Kent State University
    University of Louisiana-Lafayette
    Ohio University
    Pomona College
    University of Redlands
    Western Kentucky University

    Wow! What a joke. I don't blame Russel, I blame whoever the hell ok's these things. Total Joke. Yes, I'm still ranting. I feel like I'm taking crazy pills! I think we could throw dog **** on our uniform and some of you would love it.

    I know we get paid money for this stuff, put at some point it's worth money to not be lumped into the same category as Chapman University and Pomona College. Is the Georgia f*cking Tech or University of Redlands?! Keep it classy!

    And it's not even original...they stole the design from some little company that did our track unis in 2010

    I knew it would we bad when we had that press conference announcing us as Russell's "showcase" school. Showcase of **** maybe.

    At least colorado state got away with just minor tackiness in the form of mini ram horns on the pads...One can only hope they will usurp us as "showcase" school. I wouldn't mind seeing some pasture grass or wool or something plastered all over their unis...it would be entertaining.

    At least The Denver Post has enough taste to hate them, geez, what would they think of ours is they think this is bad?!

    The main thing to remember is the players like them.

    Obviously, current CSU football players werent born in time for a 70s flashback when disco shirts with geometric designs were all the rage.

    At least the material isnt polyester.

    Up close, the sleeves on Colorado States new dark green home jerseys look like a pattern of gold Spaghetti Os, each missing a part of the circle. The players say the designs are Rams horns.

    From a distance, it looks like someone took a can of gold spray paint and went to work on a fade look.

    It gets better (or worse, depending on ones perspective), The pants have an insert on the outside seam with the broken O design. The crisp white lettering on the dark jerseys has been replaced by an old mustard color.

    It makes one wonder if there will be enough color contrast to discern the numerals from a distance in the stands.

    Still to be unveiled are the white road and special orange retro jerseys.

    Im giddy with anticipation.
    The consensus is in...Russell sucks...and is desperate for attention, we are just their guinea pig.

    We are not the only uniform challenged fans. The bizarre and ludicrous is being force fed to fan bases everywhere. Makes me wonder if there are some uniform companies passing out kickbacks. Read the whole thread - sounds like us.

    Interesting...Russell seems to really like this micro detail that you can only see from a few feet away. I don't get it. It's the dumbest thing in the history of uniforms.

    anyway, it seems that it is what it is and there's nothing we can do about it. I just get riled up reading people saying they like them, it's like a slap in my face, but different strokes for different folks. I am going to guess that we won't sell to many of these and that the old fogies that write the big checks absolutely hate them, so hopefully they will be gone next year. Going to be a long one though.
