Auburn - Arkansas Uniform Matchup

After another week and another W, we turn our attention to the Razorbacks of Arkansas. Records aside, I have a feeling this game this weekend will be a decent one (for a half at least). For as potentially ugly as the score may get, the on field uniform matchup will be even more ugly.

Arkansas has always had an identity crisis of sorts when it comes to their uniforms. I swear they've had at least five or six different sets since the turn of the century. And what they have now are by far the worst. Arkansas and Nike unveiled this current set last year, but they tweaked them a little this year, but so little no one will ever know unless they were told (it was the color of a helmet decal on one of their helmet colors for what it's worth).

I understand trying to go for the "Razorback" stripe on the shoulder, but it just doesn't work. Unfortunately too. I've never been a fan of silly shoulder thingys, but this is just as bad as it gets. And what makes it worse is they have a full black set. Yuck.

Who knows what to expect with this team. I would bet that the Razorbacks will wear their red jerseys with white pants. I'm leaning more towards them wearing their red lids as well. They have only worn the white lids once by my count this season, so it wouldn't be a complete surprise if we see a White-Red-White look come Saturday.

This is what we saw last year for reference:

The Razorbacks Equipment team has a twitter page, and the Facebook page has posted the uniform combo before this season, so if anything comes up, I shall update in a new post.

Let's show Bielema exactly how real football is played. And how real men playing football dress at that.

War Eagle.

Auburn - Florida Atlantic Uniform Preview

   For as good as last week looked on the field, it was that much better of a game! Way to go Tigers!

But (Coach speak warning), it's time to stop celebrating last week and look ahead to this week's game. As the players study film and the upcoming opponent, I shall go a less serious and demanding route. Let's look at the uniform matchup we can look forward to this weekend!

AU-TAMU Uniform Matchup Update

As I posted yesterday, I had no clue exactly what Texas A&M would wear. But now we know a little bit more. The Aggies are planning a "Maroon Out" this weekend. But, that doesn't necessarily mean that the team will wear all maroon. Take Oregon for example- they release a schedule every year telling their fans what color to wear to "Color Out" the stadium. The odd thing is, the team on the field usually wears the opposite color, never matching their fans in the stands. But for a team like Texas A&M, that, as far as I know, doesn't do this kind of thing very often, I would expect them to follow suit and actually wear all maroon.

What we do know is that Texas A&M will be wearing Breast Cancer Awareness shirts at some point in the day (either pre-game or as under shirts). Adidas has provided this same shirt to other teams, and they have worn pink accessories, so I wouldn't be surprised to see those this weekend.

Game 7 Uniform Matchup

I'm thinking about doing something new for this blog. Adding a uniform matchup post for each game, posting what the possible combinations or the confirmed uniform combo for the weekend will be. For the first installment of this series, I will feature Auburn vs. Texas A&M.

I'm not into doing the stats of a matchup, but this will be the fourth overall game between Auburn and Texas A&M. TAMU leads the series 3-0. The game has never been played in College Station.

Update 10-9-13

I know that this site was supposed to be set up for Auburn basketball uniforms only, but since that research project has slowed down so much, I am stretching out into other aspects of the uniform world right now. I thought about starting a new blog altogether, but I realized I don't have enough content (or a name...) for another site. So, this site will be more so overall uniforms and what I think is necessary for being written up, than just Auburn basketball. The AU Basketball Uniforms tab will still exist, and everything will be posted there as well. And now that I have more content to add here, I will obviously be using this site more, and have also updated some things. The new Twitter widget has been added to the right side bar. If anyone has ideas (I would love an awesome background design if anyone would like to help), please let me know.

Thank you to everyone that continues to read this site. I hope to make it much better and update much more.

War Eagle!

Auburn Wearing White Late in the Season

With LSU wearing white at home like usual nowadays, Auburn didn't get the chance to break out the white tops that weekend. Also, with Auburn playing five of its first six games of the 2013 season at home, that means the Tigers have worn blue all season thus far. That, the following tweet from @TheTigerTalk, got me thinking- "When was the latest that Auburn wore white for the first time that season?" 

After a little research, and some help from @AU_History, I have discovered the answer!
