Dissecting Auburn Uniforms: Auburn University Marching Band

Throughout all the teams I have documented uniforms, they consist of all team members wearing the same uniform. Soccer and Volleyball break that trend, but only one player is outfitted in something different, yet still rather similar. The AUMB is a completely different undertaking. The band consists of the drum majors, the band itself, and the Tiger Eyes, itself consisting of subgroups with a uniform of their own. That’s a lot of different pieces that come together to create one cohesive look on game day. Let’s try and break down the Auburn University Marching Band aesthetic. This might take a while.

New Uniforms for Auburn Club Sports - Hockey & Wheelchair Basketball

Everyone is familiar with a university's main sports - baseball, basketball, most likely football. The NCAA sponsors 90 championships - 41 men, 46 women, and three co-ed - across 23 different sports. But there's another level of athletics at most schools, one that doesn't get the nationally televised exposure or even scholarship money. Club sports feature many different sports not sponsored by the NCAA, like bass fishing, Ultimate Frisbee, sailing, and many others.

2017 NCAA Uniform Recap

The summer is tough for any sports fan, with few athletic events in action. That is even more true for college athletic fans, and even more so for football fans. But the summer isn’t completely dry of all action, as this is the time that teams reveal their new uniform plans for the upcoming season. With athletic uniforms becoming more of a big deal than ever, more teams join the party each year. This large undertaking, documenting each uniform change made public prior to the beginning of the season, is one of my favorite projects each year. 

Last year’s edition saw over 115 teams listed. This year, the list has topped 120. The teams listed below have announced a range of the smallest changes to full out new uniforms.

More Auburn Football Concepts

Last year I randomly asked people to send me their craziest Auburn football uniform concept ideas and I would make them come to life. I enjoyed it last year, so thought we should do it again this year. Once again, I was not let down by the ideas some come up with. Some were crazy. Some were more tame. Others were literally impossible. Here's a new collection of crazy Auburn concept uniforms!

Auburn Almost Changed Logos in 1995

A week ago was the report that Auburn University was officially changing the academic logo. A few days later, Jeremy Henderson of The War Eagle Reader (one of my favorite sites; could spend hours jumping down Auburn-related rabbit holes) posted a piece regarding the Auburn logo. In fact, the time that Auburn tried to change the logo entirely.

Exclusive: Mysterious 1964 Auburn Football Helmet

Auburn's football uniforms have been nearly the same for the last 60 years or so. But there were plenty of changes the years prior to to 1966, when the AU logo first donned the helmets. From orange and green uniforms in the 1930s, to blank helmets that eventually sported the player numbers, it took Auburn a while to find a true uniform style that they would eventually stick with for decades to come.

Auburn Football Quasquicentennial?

Over on Twitter, I typically get a lot of questions in regards to Auburn's uniforms, people wondering where to purchase a specific piece of Auburn merchandise, and even some questions about gameday for the different sports on campus. Recently, I had a question posed to me that I hadn't thought of whatsoever beforehand - Will Auburn celebrate the 125th year of football like they did the 100th anniversary?

New Batting Helmets for Baseball and Softball

One team is looking to defend it's conference championship and run to the final game of the season. The other is looking to fight out of the bottom of the conference. Auburn Softball started the new season last week with a win over #1 Oklahoma. Auburn Baseball's year begins this weekend, as the young team looks to gain some needed experience. Two teams on rather different paths, but each sporting some new looks to the new year.
