I've often wondered where different schools get their fonts for their fields and uniforms. Eventually, I gave up the thought and assumed it was customized. Helmet and uniform design is a very hot topic these days, especially in college football. Personally, I like classic looks like Penn St, Texas, and Alabama. However, if a school can pull off design, like Oregon, they should definitely do so. I do tend to gravitate towards the helmets of the uniform more than the jersey/pants. I don't think a school should EVER put their entire school name on a helmet. A simple logo, initials, letter, number, or plain color is easy on the eyes and so much classier. For example, Temple's "line-T" design is better, in my opinion, than their helmets that read "TEMPLE." On the same note, Missouri's "gold-M" design was better, in my opinion, than their current design with the Tiger in the oval. Even Oregon, who has the ability create a crazy helmet design, and probably make it look decent, has stuck with either the "O" helmet or the "wings" helmet design.
I guess I got off track for what this thread is for. My point is, I would redesign those uniforms which are out of control, beginning with the helmet which can make or break a uniform. Again, all in my opinion.
I like the way you think, when it comes to re-design uniforms. And if you want to, you can try making these designs and show them in pics one day. And I do agree on the fact that most schools with "pure traditional" classic styles like Alabama, Texas, Penn State, etc.; these elite schools should re-brand themselves. In Penn State's case for example, their letter font on the men's basketball jersey looks unique. It should be also applied to the football version, in lettering and numbering.
P.S.: In terms of jersey quality, you like skill-cut wide-spread half-sleeved jerseys, like most quarterbacks wear (i.e.: John Elway, Peyton Manning, Kyle Orton, etc.); or the tight-sleeved line-cut jerseys, like most linemen wear?
