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.

This is it. Kids like it. That's all. We don't have 10 National Championships to hang our hats on. So, they simply make us noticed. ESPN talks about uniform changes. Twitter talks about uniform changes. Its simply exposure.

Depends on the kind of change. I liked the American flag hog, and I actually like the oversized ones on the grey and chrome helmets. Not sure if there was any other changes...lol. So, I'm not opposed as long as its sharp.

Honestly, I could do without the anthracite uniforms. At least as they have been done so far. I would rather see a flat black helmet with a bright red hog, and flat black uniforms. The chrome thing doesn't do it for me.

I would love to see a modern twist on the 07 uniforms.

I know we had the same style as Bama and OU, but I hope we never go back to that again. I don't want to look like those teams, regardless if it's what we wore 40 years ago.

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 hope we find our own look going forward. Please do away with the tusk crap. Please!

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.

You do realize that with the exception of Bama and Penn St., all of those schools that you listed have worn or do wear alternate uniforms.  I can post some pictures if you like.

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 hope CM says we will wear cardinal jersies at home and white on the road, always with white pants and always with a cardinal helmet with a white running hog on each side.

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?

They should redesign the Jerry World uni's, replace the silver with Red/White and make those permanent. Those were fantastic.

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.
Yup, the uniforms during the DMAC years were sharp. With ARKANSAS in big letters across the chest. I love those jerseys

Now those were nice.

Can’t we make cool uniforms out of cardinal and white? Black and Anthracite are just not Arkansas. 100+ years of red and white shouldn’t be defiled. WPS

Don't think anyone is arguing this point. New uniforms simply give the Hogs positive attention with media/recruits.

Cardinal and White.  Two stripes on the legs.  Old School is the way to go.

Why do you want us to look like OU and Bama?

We don’t need to go back to a bland and boring look like that.

3 stripes down the leg with the Cowboy type uniforms we wore with white instead of grey would look awesome.

I can't name any because that wasn't my point at all.  I was just pointing out that there really is no such thing as "pure uniforms" with most college programs.  Whether or not it's beneficial is a question I can't answer.

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.
