    Uniform Watch?

    Today, ESPN had a rare article on college hockey-related matters, putting together an off-beat ranking of club hockey uniforms of schools that are in football bowls this year https://www.espn.com/nhl/story/_/id/...hy-oregon-no-1

    I thought a couple of them looked really good, especially the more classic ones from Indiana and Alabama, and the piece got me wondering whether some NCAA Division I teams could use a uniform refresh.

    I thought there might be a uniform thread on here where folks might post news of jersey changes or one-game special jerseys (e.g. annual RPI Black Friday jersey), or general commentary/rankings of jerseys but apparently there's never been much interest in the topic. We'll see whether this thread sinks straight to the bottom of the page!

    I think there is an "insert image" button on the second row of the toolbar, the fourth button in from the right. Would love to see the other Bama jersey.

    ASU changes uniforms at least every year, sometimes twice per year. Typically has 3 different uniforms each year. It's an Adidas contract thing.

    The Dartmouth green and white horizontal stripes are gross.

    That is what many pro soccer teams do, but mainly to get fans to buy a new set of team shirts every year. Maybe they are trying to keep it fresh as part of the recruiting strategy (a la the U Oregon football uniforms), but I think ASU's color scheme would look great in a more traditional style. That said, the all-black uniforms they had one year looked pretty good.

    I'm not opposed to them, but I get why many don't like them. That said, Dartmouth's all-green road uniforms are simple, classic, and solid.

    I love the road greens, and the home whites are right behind them--the adjectives you used for the greens are the same reason why I love them. Hope they retire the stripes.

    NMU recently started using a gold 3rd jersey. Haven't heard any complaints yet.

    If you are ever curious about different styles your team, or any other D-I men's team for that matter, has worn over the years you'll likely enjoy my website www.johnsonsjerseys.net. It currently has roughly 700 game worn college hockey jerseys on the site which I've collected since 1995. For teams other than Michigan Tech, go to "OTHER UNIVERSITIES" and then select your desired conference. The teams are arranged alphabetically within each conference. There is also an "ARCHIVE" section of the site with another 1,000 or so jerseys, but I don't own any of those as they were sold or traded away over the years. I just keep them on the site for others to view and enjoy. All 60 current D-I teams and also many defunct programs are represented.

    I am of course biased as a Huskies fan, but my favorite in the collection is one of Tony Esposito's Michigan Tech sweaters, shown below. One of my past favorites (no longer in my collection) would be the home jersey of BGSU's Ken Morrow best known for his part in the 1980 Olympics Miracle on Ice. I recently made a trip to BGSU and one of the photos of Ken on display was matched to the jersey by one of the large puck/stick marks across the front.

    Enjoy!

    Great stuff! Growing up in the Copper Country, that Tech sweater will always be a favorite!

    Time to plug myself!

    Last year I did a full uniform history for UAH, going all the way back to the first club team in 1979-80.

    For the most part, I like the Chargers' current set, except I wish there was less emphasis on black and more on blue. Our road blues are the best, I think.

    Kato went through our Goth phase as well, when we had a lot of black in the uniform. Hopefully, those days are behind us now.

    Indiana looks classic... a few off of the top look good though most are men

    I once again note my coworker and once a week tenant was the Clemson coach during his grad school run

    What a great website! And I agree the Esposito and Morrow jerseys are great. There is something about script lettering that works well with hockey jerseys

    I am also not a fan when black gets used as a primary uniform color when it is not one of the main school colors. I think MSU's road and third uniforms are pretty good, especially since they have gone with lettering on the front instead of the logo. Sometimes a schools broader athletic department branding (logos, specialized fonts) don't really translate well to hockey uniforms.

    What a great service you have performed to catalog this history! The road blues are great: Another example where simple is better for a hockey uniform.

    I went up to Hanover to watch RPI play Dartmouth last year and checking out some of the photos around the area, it's clear Darmouth has a solid jersey history, with only a few missteps. This article was a good recap: https://www.vnews.com/dartmouth-uniform-history-7990383
