Birmingham Bowl Uniform Preview

It's the most wonderful time of the year - bowl season. Many teams - 80 this year! - have been rewarded with 15 extra practice periods, gift suites worth up to $550, and one more game for the season. Our Auburn Tigers got the short straw due to a 6-6 record and will make the short trip up the road to Birmingham to face the Memphis Tigers, a team I would assume would much rather play at a bigger game. But hey, conference-bowl agreements can be a pain.

Auburn Athletics Uniforms - Year in Review

The end of the calendar year always brings about articles remembering the last 365 days, in many shapes and forms. Sports seasons, especially the slew of collegiate sports, don't typically fit in nice and neatly with the calendar. So what's a better time than now to look back at the previous 365 days or so of the uniforms worn throughout Auburn's biggest sporting teams!

2015 Auburn - Georgia Uniform Preview

A few tough losses in the previous weeks made Auburn's win against Texas A&M that much more enjoyable. Now we turn our attention to the Deep South's Oldest Rivalry.

2015 Auburn - Texas A&M Uniform Preview

For the sixth time in the history of the programs, the fourth time as conference divisional foes, Auburn and Texas A&M will face off this weekend. Auburn makes their second visit to College Station, a college town that treated Auburn quite well the last time they visited.

The NFL is Their Own Worst Enemy

The old adage of "No Fun League" is true, once again. The NFL has hit what they think to be a pot of gold, and they're probably right. Earlier this football season we were told that the NFL wanted to do something to spruce up their Thursday night football games. Poor matchups and games have been hurting the leagues weekday games, so something had to be done. But what can be done, when on one had the owners and league like having a day set aside from the rest of the league, but on the other players are saying that it hurts the players, and in turn the leagues. The way the NFL has been operating as of late, it's no surprise they didn't listen to their own players.

2015 Auburn - Ole Miss Uniform Preview

Halloween has the potential for some really spooky football games this season, with some great potential upsets on the schedule. Auburn comes in to the early morning game off a rough four overtime loss to Arkansas. Back home, the Tiger host an Ole Miss team that's tough to read, as they defeated Texas A&M this past weekend, and fell to now top 15 Memphis.

2015 Auburn - Arkansas Uniform Preview

Auburn comes off a bye and defeats Kentucky on the road on a Thursday night. This weekend, Auburn faces the Arkansas Razorbacks, a team coming off their own bye week.

New Auburn Basketball Uniforms

Auburn basketball broke out new alternate uniforms last season, in what turned out to be a testing period for Under Armour's new template and tailoring styles. This year, to continue the three year uniform cycle the team has kept since signing with Under Armour in 2005, Auburn will wear a new set of uniforms, presumably retiring the Northwestern striped uniforms, as well as last year's alternate tiger striped unis.

2015 Auburn - Kentucky Uniform Preview

A bye week came at the right time for the Auburn Tigers. A 4-1 Kentucky team is also coming off a bye week after an overtime victory against Eastern Kentucky. As Auburn tries to bounce back after a 3-2 start, the Tigers travel to Lexington in what will be the first game of the season that they sport the white uniforms.

I was tipped off a few weeks ago that this news was coming, and now it's official. Auburn and Under Armour have re-signed for a massive new deal.

2015 Auburn - Mississippi State Uniform Review

Baton Rouge was not kind to Auburn, after the Tigers once again didn't play very well. Back at home this weekend, Auburn hosts Mississippi State in the first night game at Jordan-Hare Stadium of the season.

2015 Auburn - LSU Uniform Preview

After a close call with the wrong side of history Saturday, Auburn turns their attention to Louisiana. LSU comes off a close win of their own against Mississippi State, one in which the Tigers gave up thirteen fourth quarter points. Auburn will be facing history once again this weekend, as they attempt to win on the road in Baton Rouge for the first time since 1999.

2015 Auburn - Jacksonville State Uniform Preview

After surviving a late game run by Louisville in Atlanta, Auburn heads home to debut the new MEGATRON ...I mean open the season at home against Jacksonville State. Saturday marks the first time that these teams will face each other. Jacksonville State won't be the push over that so many people are thinking. The Gamecocks were ranked #7 in the FCS division coming in to last week's match up against #8 UT-Chattanooga. JSU won that game 23-20, to get off to a good start in the season.

Uniform War 2015: Who Won the Off Season?

Every year we see so many teams break out new uniforms for the upcoming season (you can see a comprehensive list right here). Through all the jerseys, helmets, innovative designs, and crazy "costumes" that turn peoples' heads, who actually did the best? To answer that question, let's take a look at the entire package of off season uniform reveals.

(Note: These are all my opinion. If you agree, great! I'd love to hear what you think.

2015 Fall Auburn Gear

As the new season draws closer, Under Armour and other companies are releasing new gear for each team. New Auburn gear has been revealed throughout the summer, with more coming each day. Before you head down to the Plains to shop around for your new shirts and hats, take a look through this guide to know what to expect. Most of these items were found on The AUTeamShop, whereas some were found at other sites.

Building an Auburn Alternate Uniform

Every football season it seems the talks of an alternate uniform for Auburn just won't stop. The talks come from everywhere - players on the team, fans, non-Auburn fans, uniform nerds like myself. No matter how many times I see concept artwork for a design, it's hard for me to get behind it. I don't like the idea of having an alternate uniform just for the sake of doing so. Keeping to the traditional navy and white uniforms is what is helping Auburn stand out even more in today's dozen different combination world. I've not been a fan of the idea of alternate uniforms until last year, that is.

The Guessing Game: Guessing Auburn's Opponent's Uniforms

Just recently, adidas and Louisville revealed what the Cardinals would be wearing in Atlanta against Auburn to open up the season. The night of the reveal, I attempted to render the new "Uncaged" uniforms on a Photoshop template, and shortly after thought about rendering all of Auburn's opponents this season, and make a short "uniform prediction" type post before the season starts. Now, just like the last two seasons, I will continue to do weekly uniform previews, so this post does not replace that at all. I will go into more detail regarding each team's uniform options prior to the week they face Auburn.
(Disclaimer - I do not own any of these templates, let alone the logos.)

2015 WCWS Uniform Recap

The latest edition of the Women's College World Series has wrapped up, and congratulations to Florida for winning it all for the second straight year.

I was lucky enough to make the trip to Oklahoma City to follow the first ever appearance by the Auburn Tigers. After watching many games in person at the stadium, and the rest of the games at home, I got to see many different uniforms hit the field at ASA Hall of Fame Stadium. Here, you'll get a look at each uniform worn by each of the eight teams.

Truth Lies in the Shadows

What can you decipher from a simple video? A video only lasting 55 seconds, with most of that time spent with dark transitioning effects. Well, actually a lot. Saturday morning, the day of Auburn's annual A-Day game, the Auburn Athletics YouTube channel uploaded a new hype video, entitled "Auburn: FastPhyscial."

Shining Bright on the Diamond

It's been over two months since I've written anything new for this site. Although I haven't written a new piece in a while, I've been working on other parts of the site. I recently updated the bowl game designs page, the Jordan-Hare field designs, and added many uniforms to the Basketball Uniforms page.
Auburn softball and baseball join the men's basketball team in breaking out new uniforms this season.
In the time since I last wrote a piece here - about Auburn basketball's new uniforms - Auburn baseball and softball have both started their seasons, and in turn, revealed new uniforms. First, let's take a look at the softball team.

New Auburn Basketball Alternate Uniforms

The 2014-15 Auburn basketball season was going to be a season of change, a new era. That was fully expected with the hiring of Bruce Pearl last March. We knew the culture surrounding Auburn basketball would change, that the play on the court would be drastically different than years past, and much more. But one aspect that wasn't thought of much during all this was the uniforms, and rightly so. Auburn is a place built on tradition and that obviously trickles down to the uniforms, specifically those of the football team. Prior to the 2012 season, Auburn revealed the current Northwestern striped, asymmetric uniforms that garnered a lot of praise. The edgy, different look and feel to them was something Auburn wasn't necessarily used to, with the most prominent uniforms sporting the Auburn orange and blue and the AU being the same since the early 1960s. Yesterday, Auburn revealed a brand new uniform, to everyone's surprise.
