We’ve gotta talk about Louisville’s new football uniforms

I know today is a big day, but let me take a break to make fun of our rivals down the road. UofL got some new football uniforms today, and in classic adidas fashion, they took a cool thing and went WAY too far. The new unis are basically a broke down Affliction version of Oregon’s:

See, there, that looks fine. And then you see A GIANT REALISTIC CARDINAL ON THE SIDE OF THE HELMET:

WTF! That’s like John James Audubon meets zombie apocalypse meets Angry Birds. What is happening with those talons? They’re clawing that player in the ear!

And the cleats! Don’t get me started on the cleats!

I can hear it now…”DON’T TWEAK THAT BEAK BABY! TALONS OF TERROR COMING FOR YOU!”

    Adidas sucks. These are absolutely awful.

    Did anyone else see their blunder with the mississippi state warmups in baseball?

    I HATE Louisville with a passion. But honestly, I think these are pretty cool. They are a little bit much, mainly cause I hate the cardinal so much now. But if these were wildcats I would dig it. Players, fans, and recruits will like these. This is the evolution of jerseys for the future.

      I like the helmets, especially that the bird doesn’t have teeth…I’ve been making fun of UofL using teeth in a Cardinal when Cardinals don’t have teeth forever. The unis are ugly.

      I have to agree. The helmets look good. Shoes? Not so much.

    If they redid the helmets, it wouldn’t be so bad. Those are the worst helmets I think I’ve ever seen. If they just toned it down to a symbolic Cardinal logo, they would probably have a winner.

    They look like they were designed by the National Audubon Society.

    The cleats look more like a chicken than a cardinal. Either way, they’re ugly.

    I can see why that guy is screaming in terror in the second pic. He is getting the bird crap scared out of him just wearing that mess.

    Cardinals are tiny little innocent birds. Trying to make them look tough and scary is ridiculous.

    Nike copyright lawsuit in 3…2…1….

    The wing graphic and number style are straight out of the Oregon playbook. I think the gothic L is dumb, but it works well enough as a hip graphic. Demon Cardinal, however, is the worst. Adidas would have done better (and sold more gear) if they’d redesigned the Teethbird to be more angular and aggressive like the rest of the design.

    Can we all take a moment and thank the good Lord above that we aren’t an Adidas school?

    Goood night.

    They can play the “Birds of War” song from Always Sunny in Philadelphia when they take the field.

    Bob Valvano said on his noon show that he loved the new uni’s and that UL’s brand is iconic…WTF Bobby V, WTF!!

      Bob V’s incessant ass-sucking of UL and daddy Jurich is iconic.

    The helmets are fantastic. The uniforms and shoes are . . . not. End of the day, in the wild, I’m not afraid of a cardinal. Or a robin. A duck could nibble you a lot, I guess, but still, not a frightening animal. Of course, the University of California at Santa Barbara are the Fighting Banana Slugs. I’m not really sure what a Slug can do to you, so I’ll withhold judgment. I’d probably give a Banana Slug a wide berth. Wider than I’d give a wren, sparrow or cardinal.

    Have I got too much time on my hands? Hmmm. Maybe.
