My Alma Mater released their 2016 uniforms in the past week and I wish I could say I was excited, but I would be lying if I did. Even though this may be a slight upgrade from their previous set, it really doesn't change the overall score too much. I mean you can sprinkle sugar on dog poop, but it is still DOG POOP.
My rating for this new uniform is a 5.73 out of 10. The previous uniform rating was a 5.57 out of 10. The crazy part is the 2012 uniforms were rated at a 9.75 out of 10. So in a matter of 5 years WKU went from near perfection to mediocre.
What I like about the Helmet: I like the red stripe and the logo on both sides of the helmet.
What I dislike about the Helmet: I don't care what team it is I HATE CHROME HELMETS!!!
What I like about the Jersey: I like the stripes on the shoulders and that the numbers colors are the same unlike the previous set.
What I dislike about the Jersey: I do not like University’s cupola, the Colonnade on the numbers at all.
What I like about the Pants: Nothing stands out that I like.
What I dislike about the Pants: First off, team name scripts should NEVER be used on the pants for any football team besides high schools. Second, if you are going to put your team name script on the pants, at LEAST make it visible from a distance. For example, the black on black on the 5th picture down looks like crap compared to the 2013 uniform set.
