Since cameras, photos, and social media make pictures more plentiful and better quality, this journey will start backwards, from now to the past. This is the quickest way to get some content on this site. Pictures of older Auburn basketball years are difficult to come by. So why tire myself out on the old stuff? Exactly. Let's start with the past season.
In what was an extremely disappointing season (my freshman year at Auburn), the Tigers did have some unique, asymmetric uniforms that were a great sight to see, given the record of this team.
As you can see from above, Under Armour went a little out on a limb with this set. Northwestern-stripes inspired by the football team are placed on the right shoulder and left short leg. Lines cut into stripes at angles, which seem a bit random and unnecessary. Big AU on the right short leg pays tribute to many old school Auburn basketball uniforms. AU-logoed "belt buckle" on the waist band is a cool touch. Under Armour square neck rather than typical V-neck. Small AU button on back of jersey right beneath the collar. Under Armour UA on left chest and left waist. SEC circle logo on right chest. These (along with the previous 2009-12 uniforms) are my favorite uniform set of the 2000s, which isn't saying much, as you'll soon learn.
Episode 1 of many stories complete. Hope you enjoyed this entry, hope you'll join me for the rest to come. Feel free to comment on your opinions of these uniforms, as well as ideas as to how I can improve this blog. It's new, I'm new to blogging and uniform database-ing, so go easy on me please!
P.S. If you have any photos of old Auburn basketball uniforms (2008 and earlier) please share with me!
