The new uni's have been officially unveiled and are officially open to morons like you and I for ad nauseum scrutinization.

Here they are.



Have at it.

Way to simple...wish they would have done a full crimson...they might for the AC. They are ok..just not very exciting

Simple and classy. I dig it. Now if only we could put some better players INSIDE of them.

Jenkins said...

Crisp and clean - I dig them too. I was expecting something garish a la the Ducks. I'm happiest that they went with the WSU logo on the helmets, rather than the script "Cougars." We have one of the most recognizable logos in the entire country, the same one that's on the flag at all the College Gameday sets. No reason at all not to go into battle with that on the helmet. We look like a WAC team when we go with "Cougars" on the helmets (okay, maybe that's a bit strong, but you get my drift).

Not bad.

How bout them Pens!!!

City of Champions lives again!!!

Jack Thompson said...

The Grey helmet is absolutely terrible. OWe should have stuck with the "Cougars" on the helmet. All of you who keep beating the "most recognizable logo" drum are delusional. HATE how the logo is facing backwards on the left side of the helmet. The silver Cougar helmets were4 our tradition for as long as games have been on TV and we trashed it when we went to the Broncos-style unis.

Agree with everything the Throwin Samoan said

I'm not seeing the logo backwards on either side. Looks fine to me, particularly on the grey helmet. I also like the simple and classy look. And yes, if we could just get players that were worthy of wearing them. Sad that it only takes a few bad ones to give Coach Wulff and the team such a bad image.

To all you haters, the script "Cougars" is so sick, I get swine flu from it; H1N1 style. How about and all white with a white helmet & and all crimson with a crimson helmet? Maybe even an all black (which was rumored to be made) with crimson accents? I'm tierd of this bland grey and crimson shit; it needs to be mixed up. I can't wait to hear what you all-to-serious fans have to say.

The script "Cougars" logo sucks and I'm glad we went away from it. Nothing will ever change my mind.

LouisianaCoug said...

These uniforms are great, logo or script aside. I am a supporter of the script for reasons already mentioned by JT- but I still dig the logo...

But I have one stipulation, that logo sure as heck not EVER show up on the helmet in the Apple Cup, period. It should get the same treatment as crimson pants in Husky Stadium. I'm not superstitious, but history doesn't lie.

Go Cougs

kaddy said...

The line on the sleeve is a bit bland, imo. I loved it when we had the logo on the shoulders...wish that was brought back.

In general I like to keep it simple, but a teeny bit of something extra would have been nice.

Big Ben said...

Did we change the shape and look of the actual helmet itself. It looks all futureistic with the wierd vents and facemask...anyone else notice that??

calebcherry said...

@Big Ben: Now that we're a 'Nike' school (does anybody know if our whole school is head to toe now? for example... our baseball team, etc.) I notice that a lot of Nike schools like Penn State and Oregon (and a lot of smaller schools) also have Schutt helmets exclusively with the school. I'm pretty positive that those are some of the new schutt lids... of not then the revolution style has been updated.

I absolutely love the white on white combination. I was really hoping we'd get a solid combination from Nike. I hope this look comes out for more than just a couple games this season.

Mike said...

Im so disappointed! Nike can do better than this. They have a crimson or white jersey slap a stripe on the shoulder and a Washington State. I could have come up with these in 5 minutes. I was complaining about Russell all year and now I wish we had them back! Also I love the WSU logo, but not on the helmet and they say we aren't going to be seeing much of the "Cougars" on the helmet anymore, damn shame. Very unimpressed Nike!

When you look at all 3 side by side, it seriously looks like 3 different teams! C'mon Nike, you're all about building the BRAND -- something that was clearly missed with these uniforms. Little help here?

You should have a contest to make the best uniform with the EA sports uniform maker and then give the winner a new replica jersey. that would be cool.

BH said...

I'm with Ben Million--I'd have been the most happy had the new uni's come with a guaranteed first down or two attached. That said, I think that the alternate road unis are the best.

Maybe we can pull a Dallas Cowboys and use those in our home opener??

Longball said...

The new Unis are flat-out awesome. Its not shown here but an all crimson, crimson curtain look at home would be a nice 4th look. Not only do we look sharp, we look like THE COUGS!

Drew Bledsoe said...

The helmets our the new revolution speed helmets that are starting to become very popular in the nfl and college. Only a few colleges use them and I hope we use those exclusivly they are really cool.

We our exclusivly a Nike school, our basketball and baseball teams will aslo get new uniforms.

James Wentz said...

the only thing i don't like is the dark gray stripe on the gray pants. it looks really odd.

Allen said...

Love the white jersey/pants combo- I think the white jersey/grey pants will work out great as well. There's something funny about the Crimson jersey with Grey pants, but they're so much better than the last few years grey pants with red stripes. Those were terribad. Thank goodness for the logo instead of the generic script for helmets.
