So one of the "big" topics in the near preseason that I have seen many of the blogs discussing is the uniforms. Of course everyone knows that we became a featured program for NCAA Football for Under Armor a few years back, and we have had some significant detail changes since then. This year seems to be the year of the faux "stained glass" uni details (also featured on the hoops unis and the hockey unis). While I love the idea of being a "testing ground" for UA, I really wish we could have two goals in mind: tradition and identity. We have a strong traditional uniform identity, not to the extent of teams like Notre Dame or Alabama, but still a strong tradition. The sold gold helmets with a single stripe has been used since sometime in the 90s (couldn't peg an exact year) and before that it was just solid gold (see Flutie era).
