Title: uniforms
Post by: hawgtime on December 09, 2017, 11:23:48 am
I hope he allows us to sport some terrific unis some this year.... I like the way they look (as long as we wear traditional too)  and I think the kids really, really love them.

I am all for fun uniforms, but i would prefer cardinal and white. Why mix non school colors in? Unless its for breast cancer or something special.

I liked our unis from last season.  Only thing I would change is to add the hog on the sleeves.  I just don't want the helmet to change.  I don't mind the white helmets occasionally.  I just don't want him to do like several schools are doing by adding numbers on one side of the helmet.  I hate that.

TWO red stripes on the pants. That's traditional. Bring that back for starters. Freaking A. Just do the DMAC years 2007 and call it a day.
Title: Re: uniforms
Post by: Tusker4life on December 09, 2017, 03:19:06 pm
I call traditional from the 70-80’s, which to me look more like Alabama, only numbers and hogs on the jersey and only a hog on the red helmet.  But i do like the version from the Nutt era as well. I like the 64 uniforms, but they have a different hog on the helmet, which is cool, but i like current one. I do like the away uni with the white helmet. But I know i am 50 and not hip. I just love cardinal and white. And I know i am probably boring to the kids now.

Do you guys like the stickers they put in the helmet for touchdowns and stuff? I think its good to recognize achievements, but i dont like the clutter distracting from the hog.

The one Barry Lunney wore with no stripes on the pants were my favorites of all time. To me this is Arkansas! WPS

If you were around in 2006-2007, those would be slightly updated traditional unis.  When DMAC and Jones were finishing up.  Great uniforms, those.

Don't screw up the helmets with those gosh awful stick-on things and stay with cardinal and white.

To me, "traditional" Razorback uniforms do look very similar to Alabama.

Solid cardinal helmet with a white razorback, but no award stickers.

Cardinal jerseys with white numerals at home. White jerseys with cardinal numerals away.

The pants are white with two parallel cardinal stripes running lengthwise.

The 1995 uniforms without the stripes were simple and everyone knew who we were. Adding stripes to the pants would make them more traditional, but heck they dont even need em. I just hate the tusk and the word “arkansas” or “Razorbacks” on the front. They should know who we are by the red helmet with the awesome hog in it!  WPS
Title: Re: uniforms

1995 was also the year the hog was increased in size on the helmet if I remember correctly.

I love these too.  I see nothing wrong with the size of the lettering unless you are embarrassed to be from Arkansas.  It should say ARKANSAS on road jerseys and RAZORBACKS on  home jerseys.  If you are playing at home and don't know where you are, you have a problem.

Title: Re: uniforms
Post by: HogCommander on December 09, 2017, 04:29:02 pm
When it comes to the unis we need some identity.  We haven't been that great at branding over the years.  We have tried to be half ole school and half new school which doesn't work.  Either go full on new school like Oregon or keep it traditional.  Just don't mix both. 

The new school stuff I have liked is the real shiny helmets we wore against K-State, and the new Razorback font is sweet. 
Not sure why we haven't updated the endzones with the new font in DWRRS and in War Memorial.  I'd be okay mixing those two things with traditional. 

My preference would be an updated version of the 06-07, get rid of the crap on the shoulders, two striped pants again, and bring back the shiny helmets.

Glad to know I still ain’t a senior citizen. 👍

If we start winning they won’t care if we wear the 64 uni’s every game. Do you guys remember us having numbers on the back of the helmets pre-1978?
We also had helmets almost identical as Alabama from 1957-63. The hog debuted in 1964.

So, Tusker, why does Alabama not worry about what the kids think?  I think your more hip than you give yourself credit for...

 I think if anyone is critical of this uniform that they are nit picking, and since we're picking nits, I like them as is, but I would still do Arkansas on the away jersey and Razorbacks on the home. I also would like a silver chrome helmet with a red chrome razorback, or frost razorback for a white out...

I don’t mind the color variations on the helmet occasionally but the red with white Hog needs to remain the staple. I like the matte or chrome but I’m probably in the minority. I think the Hog stands out best on the matte red shell.

So they should just be like womens clothes.  Maybe we can have the designers bring in some models and have a fashion show every year.   If you are a winning team--you look good..  LOL, I just read where OU has signed on with Nike for a uniform with something called a jumpman on it.  I saw a photo of it.  LOL.  It is a football uniform with a logo of Michael Jordan dunking a basketball on it.   Let me repeat that a FOOTBALL uniform with Michael Jordan dunking a BASKETBALL on it!    Jesus Christ.  Barnum was right.

This guy gets it.  Despite what the traditionalists think about whatever uni they grew up with, the unis have changed over time and will continue to change.  Kids want to look cool and their ideas of what that is change over time.  Doesn't mean we don't keep the old versions too,  just have options.  Personally,  I liked the anthracite and would like options...not Oregon level options, but some variety is good.

I feel that CCM will go for the more modern flashy uniforms. He had quite a variety at SMU. I prefer the traditional. I don't think that it is the uniform that attracts recruits but rather winning. Look at Bama- they go there to win and do not care that they have the same uniforms every game.

Look at Bama, that’s iconic tradition. Same with USC, Michigan, Nebraska, Penn State, Texas and Michigan. You don’t need to change the brand. Its ridiculous when you flip games on the tv and have to look at the score to see who is playing, is that Arkansas, Arkansas State or Texas Tech wearing the black with red trim? With the red helmet with white hog, red jersey with only white numbers and the white pants with red stripes, everyone knew it was Arkansas, not Bama or Oklahoma. And dear God leave the hog alone, and bring back the slobber in Walton. That’s iconic.

I'm a HS baseball coach and I can absolutely say that the uniform and the way it looks means something to this generation. Heck, they've converted me. I've learned to appreciate great uniforms, regardless of sport. One of my fav things now is designing our unis every few years and/or the summer teams unis.

I, too, agree that some of the allure of Oregon is owed to its vast library of uniform combos. Oregon is a smaller state that doesn't produce a ton of D1 talent. It borders a big-time state, and, for a long while has been a national brand. I'm of the opinion Arkansas could do this, too.

I'm not saying go crazy - we don't have Phil as a booster. But there's nothing wrong w/ 4 or 5 different uni combos.

my votes

Home uniforms
1) Tradition Strong - Classic Razorback helmet (no stickers!), double stripe white pants
2) Tradition Strong II - same except all red pants
3) Opposite Day - All red uniform w/ white helmet (red hog)

Road uniforms
1) White out - all white w/ red hog on white helmet, double stripe white pants
2) Chrome Dome - Chrome red helmet w/ all white, double stripe pants
3) Traditional - All white w/ traditional razorback helmet

Good points and I agree. 

Non traditional "bling unis" attract the kids like a racoon to a shiny object.  The traditional powers (Texas, Michigan, and so on) have their iconic uniforms but they don't have to get that extra attention because of who they are and where they are.  Oklahoma State has done a great job of understanding who they are.  They'll always be the #2 program in their state, so they ratchet up their look and their offense to get noticed by recruits.  It creates a little separation from OU and it's smart.  As much as I enjoy seeing tradition (as an old guy) I think it'd be smart to try and separate ourselves more from our western rivals.  Be a little more daring to catch the eye of recruits and use our offense to reel them in.

Arkansas needs to appeal to kids anyway it can.

I hope we don't go back to a bland out dated look. I don't want us to go crazy, but I do hope we have different uniforms than what we've seen in the Bielema era. I was not a fan at all.

The 2 stripes down the leg with ARKANSAS in front looks way too much like OU and I know we had the look a long time ago, but we haven't made that look famous, OU has.

I love the change to non-traditional uniforms. Since doing so our recruiting of 4 and 5 star players has shot through the roof. Our win record has gotten better each year. I also think we should change our fight song to Kum ba Yah.
We could also replace our running Hog logo with a Poland China Hog to go along with the anthracite uniforms. Really I personally don't understand the resentment over the Wolf Howl modification of the Woo Pig Sooie yell. Why are some people so resistant to modern changes if the kids like them?

The center stripe or third stripe was white so if you had white pants it would only look like 2 stripes.  I like the two stripes but they look like bama, ou, wisk, and nebraska.  But everyone switches it up so I dont know if there is a right answer.

Hated those Sonic the hedgehog jerseys more than the tusks. Only good thing about them was they had the classic logo on the neckline instead of klingon pig.

When did we add the Hog to the sleeve?  When Hatfiled came?  Here's some pics without the hog on the sleeve.

I believe the razorback on the sleeve began in 1982, Holtz's next to last year.

The 64 throwback unis were terrible.  I really liked the Cowboys tribute unis and would love to see them again.  The chrome helmets were probably my favorite.

I'd like to see the anthracite used in combination with red if we are going to continue to use them.

I didn't care for the 1964 throwback helmets at all. The hog looks cartoonish to me. But once I saw us on the field with the uniforms on, I thought they actually looked great. Need to wear it once a year for a big game.

I love the change to non-traditional uniforms. Since doing so our recruiting of 4 and 5 star players has shot through the roof. Our win record has gotten better each year. I also think we should change our fight song to Kum ba Yah.
We could also replace our running Hog logo with a Poland China Hog to go along with the anthracite uniforms. Really I personally don't understand the resentment over the Wolf Howl modification of the Woo Pig Sooie yell. Why are some people so resistant to modern changes if the kids like them?

Hilarious.  Have you thought about a pot belly pig on the helmet? LOL

I'm an "old school" guy who does not have a problem with "freshening" our classic look.  In that vein, I like ALL of these four versions (below) . . . SO LONG AS they are paired with our current solid red helmet (with white hog on the side).  Occasionally - for a "special" game - we can break out the red chrome lids.

I have always HATED white helmets for us.  For me, they will ALWAYS be "Texas wannabe" helmets.  However, in deference to varied tastes and an apparent predilection of the younger demographic to "all white" looks, I would live with ONE road trip a year with the all-white unis and white lid (with RED hog on the side).

I also like the white jerseys on the top (the ones with the red shoulders/sleeves0 paired with the red pants and classic (red) helmet.

The rest of those concept designs just don't make the cut, IMO.

These are all very nice.  However, personally, I don't care too much for the alternate "home" jersey - the one with the white sleeves.  Just not a look I care for.

Otherwise, I like them all very much.  Cannot see whether or not the pants have a small Hog on the front-hip area, but that would be my personal preference.

Also - if you're up for it - I'd like to see the solid red and solid white jerseys with contrasting piping around the shoulder area, like our Petrino era Adidas jerseys had.  This picture of Mallett (below) shows what I am talking about.  I always though that was a very "clean" look and updated our classic solid jerseys without "re-inventing" them.  Unfortunately, the two variations in 200/09 also had either "tusks" or white blocks under the armpits.  I always wished they were just solid other than the piping.

I know some people don't like the red pants, but I'd like to see them paired with any of the road jerseys, with - OF COURSE - the traditional red helmet (or red chrome, for "special" games).

I think this is a pretty key point, which is in essence that we have no national identity as a program.
Or, we don't have a "thing".
Oregon's thing was uniform and facilities innovation. Boise State's thing is a blue field.
A&M's thing is a cult-like fanbase and an unhealthy obsession with male cheerleaders.

Bielema tried and ultimately failed to make our thing power football. Morris has the right idea by stamping a brand of "fast" on everything. Time will tell if it works.

Only Bama doesn't wear alternate unis on a regular basis.  If you think that uniforms can't help win a recruiting battles, you're crazy.   There is a reason everyone does it.  Do what it takes to win. We really only have tradition here, and that's the hog call.  We have a unique logo/mascot.  That's it.  Our 2007 unis were nothing more that copies of Bama & OU. 

Uniforms change, is okay. Life goes on.  Some of you would have bitched when the running Razorback logo showed up on the helmet for the first time in 1964 or when we changed the helmet from a white to cardinal helmet 1952.   
Title: Re: uniforms
Post by: ArkansasI on January 22, 2018, 11:52:36 am
Due to Alabama's success on the field, their uniforms get into the heads of their opponents.  If the Hogs win a few games in alternative uni's, then I suppose that the alternative uni's will be considered good luck, and maybe the new norm.

I understand that people and players get excited about what our uniforms will look like each year.  It seems a new look might correspond with new expectations.

I look forward to the day that the Razorbacks want to look like Razorbacks again.  With any luck, we'll be wearing Cardinal and White when we resume our winning tradition.

I know some people don't like the red pants, but I'd like to see them paired with any of the road jerseys, with - OF COURSE - the traditional red helmet (or red chrome, for "special" games).

Ha!  Came here to post that very picture . . . plus one other (see below).  I'm NOT a fan of the anthracite; but I do like them better with a red helmet (instead of grey).

I had mentioned earlier that I personally like it when we wear white jerseys, red pants and our classic red helmet on the road (think "Seventh Heaven" vs. Ole Miss).  And I'd like to see us do it with our current and/or new  uniforms.  See the pic below for that combo with one of our new commitments.

As for the chrome red helmets.  I, too, REALLY like them.  HOWEVER, I feel they should be reserved for "special" games - maybe a game in November when we are 8-1 and playing Auburn for the SEC West lead . . . or a Bowl game (like the one time when we did wear them) . . . something like that.  Kind of like Notre Dame has done with their green jerseys.  I personally think that they're too flashy for every game wear.

First - thanks for the effort.  I do appreciate it.

However, that's not what I'm talking about.  Take another look at the picture of Mallett.  The piping is the thin red line (in contrast to his whiter jersey) that comes down from the neck, and around the top of the shoulder pads.  The contrasting block (in this case, red) under the arms is something I want to get rid of.

So, I'd like to see that white jersey, without the red block under the arms, but with the red piping from the neck and around the pads, as in the Mallett pic.  I'd like to see pictures of that "road" jersey paired with both white, and red, pants. (and the pants can either be the same as we are currently wearing ~or~ with two contrasting stripes running the length of the pant down the side).

And, also the corresponding home jersey - red with WHITE piping around the neck/shoulder pads, NO white block under the arms.  This one with the white pants only.

In both cases, our solid (non-chrome) red helmets.

Simple.  Clean.

The final Adidas jerseys you're referring to, to me, look like short sleeve hockey jerseys with that style piping. They also had those huge tusks on the rib cage and a very wide, disproportionate stripe on the pants. Our worst uniform in a recent memory IMO.

     - Replacing the hog in the middle front of the helmet with "HOGS".
     - Removing "ARKANSAS" from the front of the jersey, and enlarging the number.
     - Removing the hog on the sleeve.  If anything, put a collegiate white stripe on the sleeves.

While any options (for sh*ts and giggles) are fair to request, I feel compelled to point out that (a) hogs on the sleeves have been features off and on for many seasons; and (even more importantly), "collegiate stripes" on the sleeves have NEVER been part of our unis.

Everyone has things they like or don't.  But I HATE the generic stripes, and one reason is that when I was growing up (50's and 60's), the football unis you could buy (in various Xmas catalogs) all had some variety of generic stripes on them.  Arkansas' uniforms had NO stripes, and that's what I wanted.  Still feel that way.

I'm with you, Ice. I like the double outline numbers and the hog on the sleeves. I think we could modify the stripe to remove the gray, like a cowboys double white stripe to match the red stripes on white pants, or even a Northwestern stripe, and no white blocks anywhere and the jersey would be perfect.

For the white jersey, I would mimic the Cowboys' double stripe on the sleeves to match the white pants, and keep the double outline numbers.

Can someone mock those up?

OK . . . just considering the jerseys . . . HATE the stripes.  Why?  Arkansas' jerseys (in my lifetime. and I'm in my 60's) have never had stripes.  It just looks "non-Arkansas" to me; plus, I've just never been a fan of stripes on the shoulders/arms of jerseys.  They are "OK" for Ohio State, USC or Northwestern, but only because they've always worn them.  Too generic a look for my taste. 

Also, not a fan of the double outline numbers.  If you're going to do anything (and, IMO you don't need to), outline the white numbers with a thin black line to make them "pop" on the red jerseys (see pics below with some of our past Nike and Adidas jerseys from recent years for examples). 

I don't want our jerseys to mimic the Cowboy's look in any way, shape or form.  Those uniforms look great on the Dallas Cowboys.  We are the Arkansas Razorbacks.  Oranges and Apples.  We don't need to look like them.

Again - and obviously - these are just my opinions.  Remember . . . you asked!   ;)

Actually, I'd LOVE the jersey Mallett is wearing in the top two pictures . . . IF . . . they'd simply remove the "tusks" in the mid-section.  That's pretty much what I requested 010HogFan to mock up for me (and he did, in the white jersey version).  Very clean look; refreshed, but retaining most of the notes from our classic look.

HATE the stripes.  Why?  Arkansas' jerseys (in my lifetime. and I'm in my 60's) have never had stripes.  It just looks "non-Arkansas" to me; plus, I've just never been a fan of stripes on the shoulders/arms of jerseys.  They are "OK" for Ohio State, USC or Northwestern, but only because they've always worn them.  Too generic a look for my taste. 

Also, not a fan of the double outline numbers.  If you're going to do anything (and, IMO you don't need to), outline the white numbers with a thin black line to make them "pop" on the red jerseys (see pics below with some of our past Nike and Adidas jerseys from recent years for examples). 

I don't want our jerseys to mimic the Cowboy's look in any way, shape or form.  Those uniforms look great on the Dallas Cowboys.  We are the Arkansas Razorbacks.  Oranges and Apples.  We don't need to look like them.

Again - and obviously - these are just my opinions.  Remember . . . you asked!   ;)

Actually, I'd LOVE the jersey Mallett is wearing in the top two pictures . . . IF . . . they'd simply remove the "tusks" in the mid-section.  That's pretty much what I requested 010HogFan to mock up for me (and he did, in the white jersey version).  Very clean look; refreshed, but retaining most of the notes from our classic look.

Fair enough. No tusks, no white blocks, no stripes

But we older guys need stripes on the pants.

Well, I was looking on the googles for info about heliotrope and the razorbacks. As I typed in "heliotrope color" the googles auto fill finished with "Heliotrope color of Satan". So make of that what you will.


Seriously, though, if Satan's color did win in the wayback, I'm sure it would have evolved over time to a more common and acceptable purple like what LSU or KSU or Northwestern wear. UCA would have picked a different color.

I got it:  How bout this.  Have the Grandmothers of each player round up some of the old 50s and 60s feedsack material which would be brown or offwhite in color and make their grandson a brand new uniform.  Arkansas and their number could be in either red or white and sewn on with the color of yarn from their high school colors.  These unis would be on every television and computer monitor in America and the free advertisment for Arkansas would be in the billions.  It would have to be Grandmothers or Great Grandmothers do this.  Most mothers have never even heard the words, sewing machine. 

For all you folks worried about the designer uniforms, you need to start a thread about hair products, brand of condoms utilized, jock strap design, under eye smut product, glove stickum, sun angle as to which way a player enters or exits the field so as to getting his best profile for the camera, and the list goes on and on.

Respect your right to have a different opinion than me, but I couldn't disagree with you more.  Those jerseys were a one-time thing for a specific reason, and they made sense for that ONE specific thing.  Otherwise, they are Ohio State wannabes and I want NO part of them going forward.

We kissed Jerry's ring . . . and he deserved it, given all he's done for the Razorbacks.  But now, back to sanity.
I thought they looked awesome in pictures but when when I saw them live it was the ultimate WT.F moment. Since I already had the narrow slight that Bielema and Jeff Long wanted to make us into a Big 10 program it was just that much more of a pile on. Ohio State wannabes....yuck.

This is what I love about threads like these. Folks arguing that they don’t want us to look like Ohio State or Dallas but do want us to look like Oklahoma, Bama, Wisconsin or Nebraska. Like copying one is actually better or worse than copying the other.

There's only so much you can do with cardinal and white (apart from putting pine cones on the crotch)...chances are some other team has already done it, especially in today's world of corporate sponsorships.

That's why I think the helmet is so important.  The Razorback helmet is iconic.  The rest is just a matter of message board fodder!

Thanks, 010HogFan.  I think most will agree that this is a "fresh" update of a classic look.  Awesome, CLEAN looking unis, IMO.

Final request (actually, had asked for this one earlier as well) . . . the white version of this jersey (as you posted earlier) with contrasting pants (i.e., cardinal with white stripes), and the same red helmet.  We have seen some versions of that combination with older looks in this thread; I'd just like to see our (my idea/your rendering) updated version of this look.

Again, thanks for all that you've contributed in this thread.  I'm sure many others join with me in sharing our appreciation.

I get so sick of stupid comments like this.

OU was wearing white helmets with a red stripe down the middle before Arkansas assistant Jim McKenzie took over as their Head Coach in 1966.  He immediately copied Arkansas' look by changing to solid red helmets with "OU" (instead of our Hog) on the sides of the helmet.  Now . . . WHY do you think he did that?  Because Arkansas sucked and THAT's what he wanted to be associated with his new program?  Rather, I'd guess it was because he was proud of what he had helped build at Arkansas under JFB and he aspired to have a program that good.

Now, if may be that when you came to football consciousness (whenever that may have been), YOU identified it, in YOUR mind, as "OU's look".  And, there's no doubt that Oklahoma has had more success than Arkansas over the last 30 years or so (and therefore, more people outside of Oklahoma and Arkansas would probably identify the look more with OU than Arkansas).  But that doesn't change the fact that we had it first, and it remains "our look", no matter how many other teams go to it.

People do care or we wouldn't be talking about it, and as for relevance on a sustained level you got that way wrong by nearly 30 years. We were nationally relevant for a sustained period up until we joined the SEC. Since then it's been sluggish except for the occasional year.

I love this post...  +1  By the way I am in my 40's and about went bat darn crazy when they came out with those Apex unis with the big assed hogs on the sleeve. If I remember correctly they got a butt load of hate mail after those came out. I am pretty sure that's also why we saw the 05/06 Adidas uniforms come out. I still can't figure out what went wrong with those. I guess the change over to Nike.
