These are the best unis we've ever used...


I've always thought the anthracite jerseys, white pants with bold red stripes, and either white helmets for road games or red helmets for home games would be a sharp look ... I've always wanted the baseball team to adopt the Anthracite jersey for road games, too ...

I decided to question my Razorback about this topic.  I was surprised to hear that he personally hopes the traditional red helmet was back.  Prefers it to the matte cardinal helmet.  He also likes the anthracite once a year.  Says all the recruits want to see the uni and helmet.  It’s actually helps the marketing of the brand.  I’m getting used to the anthracite.  Seeing #61 in it probably helps.

Simpler the better. Speaks volumes too.

Penn State just looks sharp to me. Same uniform and helmets since I was a kid. And I’m 32.

Texas, Oklahoma, Wisconsin, USC, Bama, Auburn, UGA. All of them keep it simple.

This explains a lot....

Ok old man whatever you wanna believe. You being a fan from the 60's gives your opinion no more credence than anyone else. As a matter of fact it probably shows how out of touch you are. The "young punks" are what will make our program relevant, not some Old Timers stuck in nostalgia. Btw I'm referring to the recruits as the "young punks" not young fans. No one cares about some forgotten about ravelry with Texas, No one cares about the South West Conference, and no one cares about "back in nineteen and sixty whatever NC". Check the calendar Lou Holtz and Frank Broyles have been gone for a long time...btw recruits don't even know who they are/were








Ok sonny, a couple of things to point out:
1) never said a word about the SWC
2) never mentioned Lou or Frank
3) you should care about the past concerning the program
4) I directed the ‘young punk statement DIRECTLY at you, not anyone else, sorry you couldn’t pick up on that!
5) Rivalry is and always has been spelled “Rivalry.”
6) I was always taught to respect my elders or my elders would whip my butt.
Btw, I’ll autograph you a copy of my book! In fact I may add a Chapter on Razorbacks History for Millennials....sounds like you need it.

I might add for the young uns.......let's poll who on average gives more money to the program and then tell me the old farts don't mean squat to a recruit. Without the money the recruits wouldn't have crap to look at when on a recruiting visit. I don't see any 30 year olds with their name on a building.

Love the shiny chrome helmet, in both colors.

Love the 'Bass boat' cardinal helmet

Love the all-anthracite uni, and the all-red combo

Detest the all-white. Just so bland.



In spite of all that, whatever the players want is just fine with me.

I don't mind them for a game or two.

Nobody cares how much money anyone gives.  Your donations don't recruit, look good or win games.  The donors giving the real coinage to the UofA, don't need to brag about it and are likely not wasting time on Hogville with the rest of us.  Bragging about it just looks sad.

Doesn't have to be all white... white jerseys with red pants. I know I'm in the minority, but I like the look.

I would be happy with the throwback uniforms we wore when playing Bama in 2014 or was it 2015?  Anyway the one point loss game. I believe those were the 1964 uniforms. The simpler the better. Absolutely no helmet stickers.

Uh, Brohiem, are you a dick all the time or just on days that end in “y”?
Btw it’s “too irrelevant.”  If you’re gonna be a prick, at least do it with correct terms.

Perspnally, I love the matte red helmets.  However, I'm all for going back to the traditional helmet, with the matte ones coming out on occasion.

Yeah I love the matte red helmets also.  I hate the glare off those shiny helmets.

He didn't say he did. He was generalizing that older folks are the ones truly helping to support the program. Kind of like the way older folks paid for stuff while you were growing up. At least acting like you might be grown up now would be nice and respectful and grateful. As far as sad goes younger folks not being those things are what is truly sad.

As long as they retire the red pants; forever.  I bet our W-L record wearing red pants is abysmal.

Just about every single one of the programs that you mentioned has one version or another of an alternate uniform that they have worn in the past 5 or so years.  They must see some benefit in changing up every now and then.  I think the days of keeping it simple are numbered.

I'd rather retire the white pants. They look like every other red and white team with those pants. All red, or white over red pants.
