2012-14 Uniforms

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.

2012-2014

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!

War Eagle!

P.S. If you have any photos of old Auburn basketball uniforms (2008 and earlier) please share with me!

  1. Hey man, saw this through Uni Watch and though this is an awesome idea. The only thing that I would point out is on a lot of the more recent Under Armour set (especially the newest on) the jersey numbers had sublimated tiger stripes on them. Other than that, keep it up and War Eagle.

    1. Hi Kris,

      Thanks for stopping by!

      Regarding the number striping, you are correct. The only thing is, I honestly never noticed it until I was standing right beside a player. So, to try and implement it into the uniform template that I use, it would be so minute it wouldn't be worth doing. And also it would be difficult to go back and check previous Under Armour sets to see if they too had the striping.

      It would end up looking like this, nice idea, but just too little to notice- http://flic.kr/p/f8Bxk1
