I hope he allows us to sport some terrific unis some this year.... I like the way they look (as long as we wear traditional too)  and I think the kids really, really love them.

I am all for fun uniforms, but i would prefer cardinal and white. Why mix non school colors in? Unless its for breast cancer or something special.

I liked our unis from last season.  Only thing I would change is to add the hog on the sleeves.  I just don't want the helmet to change.  I don't mind the white helmets occasionally.  I just don't want him to do like several schools are doing by adding numbers on one side of the helmet.  I hate that.

We had Hogs on the shoulders under Ford, they were ugly as hell

TWO red stripes on the pants. That's traditional. Bring that back for starters. Freaking A. Just do the DMAC years 2007 and call it a day.

I call traditional from the 70-80’s, which to me look more like Alabama, only numbers and hogs on the jersey and only a hog on the red helmet.  But i do like the version from the Nutt era as well. I like the 64 uniforms, but they have a different hog on the helmet, which is cool, but i like current one. I do like the away uni with the white helmet. But I know i am 50 and not hip. I just love cardinal and white. And I know i am probably boring to the kids now.

Do you guys like the stickers they put in the helmet for touchdowns and stuff? I think its good to recognize achievements, but i dont like the clutter distracting from the hog.

The one Barry Lunney wore with no stripes on the pants were my favorites of all time. To me this is Arkansas! WPS

If you were around in 2006-2007, those would be slightly updated traditional unis.  When DMAC and Jones were finishing up.  Great uniforms, those.

Don't screw up the helmets with those gosh awful stick-on things and stay with cardinal and white.

To me, "traditional" Razorback uniforms do look very similar to Alabama.

Solid cardinal helmet with a white razorback, but no award stickers.

Cardinal jerseys with white numerals at home. White jerseys with cardinal numerals away.

The pants are white with two parallel cardinal stripes running lengthwise.

This is a good look, and looks even better when we're winning. I'm on board.

Agree 100%.  White on white away, red over white home, gloss red helmet for both (no matte finish), and no anthracite, black, pink, or anything else.  Same ones we had in 2007.

The 1995 uniforms without the stripes were simple and everyone knew who we were. Adding stripes to the pants would make them more traditional, but heck they dont even need em. I just hate the tusk and the word “arkansas” or “Razorbacks” on the front. They should know who we are by the red helmet with the awesome hog in it!  WPS

1995 was also the year the hog was increased in size on the helmet if I remember correctly.

I love these too.  I see nothing wrong with the size of the lettering unless you are embarrassed to be from Arkansas.  It should say ARKANSAS on road jerseys and RAZORBACKS on  home jerseys.  If you are playing at home and don't know where you are, you have a problem.

I don't have a problem.  I just think it looks too big on the jersey.  Also looks too much like Oklahoma.  I prefer this size.

When it comes to the unis we need some identity.  We haven't been that great at branding over the years.  We have tried to be half ole school and half new school which doesn't work.  Either go full on new school like Oregon or keep it traditional.  Just don't mix both. 

The new school stuff I have liked is the real shiny helmets we wore against K-State, and the new Razorback font is sweet. 
Not sure why we haven't updated the endzones with the new font in DWRRS and in War Memorial.  I'd be okay mixing those two things with traditional. 

My preference would be an updated version of the 06-07, get rid of the crap on the shoulders, two striped pants again, and bring back the shiny helmets.

The last word was the correct.  Evidently Alabama, Ohio State, Michigan, etc didn't get the memo--they just get wins.

Glad to know I still ain’t a senior citizen. 👍

If we start winning they won’t care if we wear the 64 uni’s every game. Do you guys remember us having numbers on the back of the helmets pre-1978?
We also had helmets almost identical as Alabama from 1957-63. The hog debuted in 1964.

They changed them up the next year.  I thought ARKANSAS looked better in red instead of gray. Also the red hog looked much better.
