Doesn't matter to me who they are playing - I hate the Nebraska Cornhuskers - saw them beat Army up at West Point back in the days of Johnny Rodgers 77-7 and haven't liked them ever since - lived in Colorado for 5 years and grew to hate them even more - got a speeding ticket outside of Ogallala and grew to hate the whole state........and the new uni's with the stripe on the pants make them look like South Carolina

Nebraska has new uni's? What is EVERYBODY out to fuck up tradition these days?
Everybody has the "traditional" design - but if they change the design, all the fans will have to purchase new goods with the new design on it, and that means big bucks for the team.
Remember years ago, when the San Francisco 49ers were all set to change their logo to a big red "49ers" on a white helmet? Only a massive public uproar stopped it from happening. With money being such an overriding factor as it is now, hardly anyone objects to a change that would increase the cash flow.

NFL: Seahawks:Let's make these uni's a dark as we can.
Redskins:"It's amazing that the year Steve Spurrier becomes coach,we look like Florida State." And it also has something to do with them being in the league 70-years.
Nebraska: see Tennessee
Michigan State:No more "Michigan State" on the chest,replaced with tiny Spartan.New Denver Broncos like pants and spartan-like STRIPES!!!! on the shoulders.
Vanderbilt:Same Jerseys but made by NIKE,and a new Gold jersey and interchangeable Jersey and Pants.
That all I can think of.
actually FSU took the Redskins Spear helmet...
if i had a $ for everytime i read about "her-her the skins look just like fsu paw, and they got them supirrier feller too!" i'd be a rich man...

Don't forget about those AWFUL new Bills uniforms. What the hell were THEY thinking? I'd vote for those for the worst NFL unis of all time right now.
And, just to be a wiener, what would Nebraska changing their PANTS have to do with money. Nobody sells football pants do they? I mean, I know I don't want to see Nebraska fans walking around in football pants.
It's good to be a Buckeye fan, I think the only thing that's changed on the unis in the last 15 years was the addition of a Nike swoosh.
Oh, Purdue has gold jerseys now and the fans HATE them. They've voted 2 to 1 to bring back the black ones on their website.
Looks good to me.

I like the Home jerseys, but the away jersey can go to hell. A big blue square on their shoulders? Come ON!
... a blue square on the shoulders?!
Although if it's any consolation, the last seven teams to change unis made the playoffs in their first year in the new colors.
I should know about this.
And it looks like they added light blue to the color scheme on their away jerseys.
I wonder where they got that from?
ok, at least it's not just me who thinks the bills ripped off the titans scheme...

Normally, those would be Fightin' Words. After that Cal game, I'm not so sure anymore. My rankings won't come out till week 4 or so, but by losing to a FCS school, this early pretty much means they're getting ranked 120 out of 120.
