Finally. It took a while, but Kansas came out and looked as traditional (one of two ways they can do that) as possible. KU went Blue/Blue/Grey Finally.
If I were to rank this uniform combo for Kansas, I would probably score it as the third best option at home with Blue/Blue/White and White/Blue/White scoring higher overall. But this looked good….really good.
We’ve gone over each of the separate elements in other posts this year, so this post will be brief. Each element looked really good, but there is still some room for improvement.
Like they did against Iowa State, KU sported the blue helmet with two different logos. The KU logo on the right the Jayhawk on the left I like it, but I wonder if we’ll ever see the 1941 Jayhawk on the side of the blue helmet. I really want to see that. You know what would be even cooler? If when they used that "Angry Jayhawk", they left the other side of the helmet empty. Do it, Kansas. It’ll look awesome.
The only complaint that I have is one that I’ve voiced before and I know many of the commenters on this site feel the same way. The grey is way too dark. It just doesn’t work well with the blue jerseys as much as it does with the white ones. Bring back a lighter shade of grey and this uniform will look excellent.
Texas Tech went with an all-white look and the contrast on the field was excellent. I like it when the two teams look like they discussed uniforms earlier in the week and tried to create the best looking game possible. With an all-dark team battling against an all-white, we got just that.
Now that KU goes on the road next, what combo will we see? I’m betting on the blue pants making their first road appearance of the season.
