Default Nike Uniform Concepts

So I'm in the group that wants to ditch UA and get our gear under Nike; various reasons behind that.

Anyhow, I hope if we DO rebrand under another coach- this is slightly the vision I see for us.

Simplistic in design and dark in use of color- really push the garnet and black as the dominant colors on our uniforms. Take the helmets to a matte/eggshell sheen and go garnet. Single stripe as a nod to our past uniforms but minimal striping otherwise.

Went with "Gamecocks" for our home tops (garnet/black) and "Carolina" to represent on the road. Another nod to our previous uniforms of the 80's and early 90's.

Included home, away, fireant, stormtrooper, and a black alternate top.

Anyhow, nothing drastic but something to look at during the impending offseason. Think I'm going to play around some more with a totally crazy direction next post.

Aren't we under contract with UA for another two or three years? FWIW, I really don't care who our apparel provider is as long as it's not Russell.

Looks great. I'm thinking we need a couple options on helmets going forward. No chicken butt designs though. Pearlescent white, flat black, chromed garnet.

Looks great. I really like the garnet helmets with the larger block C and no white circle. However, I do like the three stripes on the helmets and the pants. Like we used to have in the 80's and 90's.

Also, could you show a garnet jersey and black pants option next time?

Default Re: Nike Uniform Concepts

I hope the new coach is involved in that decision with Tanner. Need to consider quality, money, and also recruiting. If the money is the same or close enough and kids prefer Nike I think that's the answer.

As far as design I'd like us to keep things fresh mostly to play into recruiting. I think it's undeniable that kids like to look good and that is a recruiting pull. Personally I want to see the black become more integrated or on regular rotation. I think we need helmets in each color.

I think the block C should always be on the 50 yard line. But I'm not opposed to a different helmet logo. I know the camp was pretty evenly split on that last helmet change.

And your designs look pretty good.

Garnet, black and white everything means 27 uniform combos. 18 home, 9 away.

I like Russell. They evoke images of old school football prowess. Notice the prominent Block C:

I sure as hell hope we don't switch from UA ... my bank account won't be able to keep up.

Plus, we have a UA deal across the board now, not just Football. It'll be hard pressed for someone to take that over.

We aren't leaving UA nor should we. We are one of Kevin Planks favorite programs to brand and Nike would ignore us just like they do Clemson. Their appearal for fans is terrible.

No Nike.

Love these Cola. Huge fan of the return to the garnet helmet and doing away with the triple stripe.

I do think they're more traditional than what Nike would actually design for us.
