Agree, But That is about the Loudest UCLA uniform I've ever seen. But the old guard are rolling over in Their graves.

That stupid cheetah print bothers me. What is the point of that crap?


RE: Why can't all Adidas uniforms look this good? - ndlutz - 07-09-2015 01:33 PM

I guess because most schools don't have uniforms that look as good as UCLA's do.

I don't like the cheetah crap either. Just leave it alone. It's classic all on its own.

I don't mind the "cheetah" or the Change. I guess I'm too New School, but I like all the Adidas mods, even our own.03-2thumbsup

The only thing wrong with ours is the Chicken Hawk on the helmet...now I am for a New Cardinal and actually like the Cardinal on the Undergarments that they put out...just not the one on the helmet.

Well other than the "green" eyes it is most definitely a Cardinal bird. I see them all the time in my backyard.....

..and I don't mind the change of showing our Actual Mascot every so often instead of our standard cardinal head.

They're fine without the cheetah. They look more or less the same as their old ones.

And for the love of god, Adidas, get rid of those Zubaz backgrounds. It's just further proof you guys have no f'ing clue what you are doing.


RE: Why can't all Adidas uniforms look this good? - georgia_tech_swagger - 07-09-2015 03:29 PM

That is still garbage.

I just can't understand why anyone Card fan would ever want to change the cardinal logo? Its bush league to keep changing your standard logo. The winged Cardinal head was an epic fail and I thought (hope) we have learned our lesson and the red chicken look is just for the AU game.

I think it's smart. USC's uniforms look so old and worn out. They still wont let players have their names on the back. With Mora in town and other programs on the rise in the PAC, USC may be making a mistake relying so heavily upon tradition. Kids these days don't give a damn about tradition anymore and moves like this one of UCLA's goes to show that most folks in charge are understanding that new reality.

Yet 10 of 10 schools in the 2015 24/7 recruiting rankings use primarily a traditional style uniform.

10 of 10 in 2014 as well.

10 of 10 in 2013 as well.


Seems like if these special uniforms were as much of a recruiting advantage as people say they are there would be a larger amount of schools with glitzy uniforms as their primary wear in those lists.

Plenty of traditionals still have one or two games a year when they break out an untraditional.

This is what pops up when I type in Texas football alternate uniforms.

You will see some very untraditional uniforms for Texas but you will also see others for other schools. Go ahead and type up most of your "traditional" programs. If they are not already following the trend, they are dabbling in it and testing the waters. There is more inertia against the Traditionals to change like this but they all see the writing on the wall.

But a one off game isn't what your post implied. You said:

This is UCLA's everyday uniform from the 2015 season opener going forward, not a one off like you are trying to pass off. It looks like garbage.

Oregon has been a very successful program for a long time and they have how many uniform combinations? Why haven't they cracked the Top 10 in recruiting the past few years if kids don't care.

How has North Carolina's complete abandonment of tradition with their uniforms benefited them in recruiting? How about Syracuse? Virginia Tech? NC State? Surely there should be a difference you could show since

Quote:Kids these days don't give a damn about tradition anymore and moves like this one of UCLA's goes to show that most folks in charge are understanding that new reality.

Clemson's recruiting went up when we got away from the Bowden era uniforms and adopted a more traditional Clemson uniform like what we wore in the 1980's under Dabo Swinney. When you have a brand you utilize it, not change it.

UCLA is going to realize in a few years they screwed up with these cheetah spot uniforms.


RE: Why can't all Adidas uniforms look this good? - Marge Schott - 07-10-2015 09:42 AM

What did Clemson wear under Bowden that was different?

It's only a one game thing........right.?

I don't want it to be our every game gear, but once every blue moon, won't kill us and is kinda cool. And I for one like change, sometimes...03-drunk
I obviously want our Original logo back, but we have changed logos way too many times to count so let's not get all uppity......03-yawn

Far more purple, non-traditional stripes and piping.

You put today's uniforms next to the uniforms we wore from the late 70's until the mid-80's and they are almost identical.

I didn't realize. You have any pictures?

Current uniform[Image: 3UEkOz7.jpg]

1977 uniform[Image: 9uZVy9e.jpg]

The only real difference is the socks and the fact that they have the Paw instead of TV numbers on the sleeves now


RE: Why can't all Adidas uniforms look this good? - Kaplony - 07-10-2015 10:53 PM

In the late 1980's the pants ended up with a navy blue stripe for some reason

Then under Bowden we ended up with these
