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.
