Here's an article that argues both sides:

 

http://espn.go.com/c...-point-schools​

 

Basically a bunch of coaches and administrators saying they think uniforms make a difference and a bunch of recruits saying it makes very little difference.

 

"Here's the real question: Are uniforms important enough to make a difference in a prospect's decision? An ESPN.com survey indicates that Oregon's hundreds of uniform combinations, Rutgers' battle-scarred jerseys and Nebraska's alternate black jerseys might not matter as much as many think."

 

"ESPN.com surveyed more than 700 high school recruits from the classes of 2014 and 2015 -- including 90 who self-identified as a member of the ESPN 300 for the Classes of 2014 or 2015 -- and asked them where uniforms ranked in their college decision. Uniforms were the top factor for only 3 percent of players, and uniforms ranked eighth on the list of criteria behind academics, coaching, playing time, school tradition, location, experience sending players to the NFL and television exposure.​"

 

""It wasn't a factor at all, but if there is a sick uniform you can sort of visualize yourself in it," Georgia tight end commitment Jeb Blazevich, the nation's No. 94 player from Charlotte (N.C.) Christian School. "You know, 'That'd be awesome.' But then you have to think, are you going to sleep in your uniform? Are you going to practice in your uniform? Or are you going to go to go to class in your uniform?"

 

"It doesn't matter what color or number that you have on. At the end of the day when you're running down the field, all you really care about is how well you do in the game. If you're a recruit and you're thinking about picking a school because it has cool uniforms -- grow up and check your swag at the door. You're making a lifelong decision. Why are you putting it into clothes?"

 

"The nation's No. 1 prospect, running back Leonard Fournette of New Orleans (La.) St. Augustine, agreed that uniforms pale in comparison to factors like future major, playing time and relationships with coaches. "All of these things go way beyond uniforms," Fournette said."

If you can sign people to wear this monstrosity, then apparently uniform's don't matter at all

It's amazing to me that Maryland had enough money to get this guy to put on that horrible, horrible outfit for a picture.  He probably only agreed to it because you can't see his face.  Someone at Maryland should be fired.

Seriously, Maryland has the worst uniforms in the nation.  They should have stuck with the traditional setup.

They don't even look like they are on the same team.

I can't imagine anyone seeing this and deciding on the spot that Sam Houston State is their new home if they get to put that on every Saturday

This was the worst thing Florida ever did to Chris Leak.  He deserved better.

I don't blame him.  I'd look angry too if they made me wear that in public.  I don't care what he did, that is cruel and unusual.

This is beyond explanation.  Neon camo shorts with tops that don't match.  Why?

Michigan is wearing maize tops with maize shorts and maize socks with maize shoes and maize jersey numbers and maize jersey lettering.  I think the idea was to blind the other team.

Louisville actually did wear these satanic possessed Cardinal uniforms.  Why are the Cardinal's feet sticking out at that angle?

Why are we talking all this s.h.i.t.

 

Superstar football programs never worry about the uniforms their players happen to be wearing. The blueprint designers of those very successful football empires concentrate on the quality of their players and coaches. 

 

Reminds me of Mr. Leo, the Fashion Consultant for the US Army, in "Good Morning Vietnam"

Amen.  I highly doubt that we have ever once lost out on a recruit that we really wanted over our uniforms.

Were all those jerseys worn in games? Man those were rough. Also, it's not a coincidence that the majority of those pictures you posted were Adidas schools. I'm so thankful we're not an Adidas school.


Go Gators!

I love pretty much all of the Gators unis and combinations (except the all orange look), but I have to say my favorite is the all white look with the orange helmets. It just shines under the bright lights. The game I can think of where they just looked incredible was @ Texas A&M when we beat Johnny Football and Gilly ran like a madman.


Go Gators!

Since we are a NIKE school they mostly dictate what uniforms that are new to us.  I care little about the uniform, but a lot about the players wearing it.


I am a "Vulcan" and try hard to keep things logical and without emotion. However as a "Vulcan" I have a highly emotional reaction mode for special occasions.

I don't think they ever used the Tennessee uniforms.  I'm not sure about the basketball neon camo shorts.  All of the others were worn in games.

 

Adidas knows they have an uphill battle against Nike and tries too hard to make a splash.  I'm also very grateful we are a Nike school.

 

Florida is top 10 every year in merchandise sales.  We don't need gimmicks to get attention.  Don't fix it if it isn't broken.
