Season in Review

Yes, I did do an end-of-2015 uniform wrap-up, but this new feature will now be moved to the end of the athletic year to better cover the year's worth of Auburn uniforms. With the last of the Spring sports just recently wrapping up, it's the perfect time to go through each team's uniforms throughout the 2015-16 athletic season.

Back to the Drawing Board - More Auburn Football Concepts

There's been a lot of chatter about alternate uniforms for Auburn football lately, thanks to the release of a wonderful video documenting the first time the Tigers broke out the orange jerseys in the modern era (I'm also credited in the video, so go watch it!). It's a typical topic - what would happen if Auburn ever deviated from tradition? - that pops up during the football lull of the summer months.

An Unorthodox Uniform - Fagan's Patch Problem

Auburn Softball won the hearts of so many Auburn fans and a lot of the country last week in Oklahoma, with the fantastic catches by Victoria Draper and Tiffany Howard, the walk-off grand slam by Emily Carosone to force a game 3, and even Courtney Shea's final at-bat. Last week I posted a full-length look at every uniform that was worn during the WCWS, even mentioning the odd cases of teams not wearing the WCWS patch. But something not mentioned was something we don't see often - an Auburn uniform mistake.

2016 WCWS Uniform Recap

Another season of collegiate softball has come and gone, with the Women's College World Series wrapping up last week, with the Oklahoma Sooners taking home their third National Championship trophy.

Much like last year, I was lucky to make the trip back to Oklahoma City to follow the Auburn Tigers to their first WCWS Finals appearance. Though the outcome wasn't what we had hoped for, the trip was a fun one and full of tons of softball.  With eight teams and fifteen games played over the last week, there was plenty to enjoy. Plenty of uniforms to discuss as well, which is always the fun part.
