I have seen a few exciting uniform updates floating around and I've been weighing the pros and cons of the futuristic vs traditional uniform arguments and would love to get your thoughts. I fully understand and appreciate the desire to stay with a base traditional look, but the look has changed over the years. It is my opinion that it may be a good time to look at it again.

They could streamline the uniform without changing the base appearance of it and give it a new, fast look to them. Auburn fans in general seem to be very stubborn against change when it comes to the uniform, even a little change despite the fact that the uniform has changed several times in the past few decades.

I would love to see navy helmets and navy pants for one game per year.
I'm not sure I really understand how that translates visually but I like the sound of it. Would it be similar to what Nike has done with Pro Combat? I agree there has to be a way to somewhat modernize the uniform without drastic change. I'm just trying to image what that would look like. I like the idea of a "fast" look though!
"Regardless of the situation, one of his coin mottos is to take the high road. That's what he's always going to do."
That had to have been decades ago though... when I talk about the subtle changes, I can only speak of changes since I was born (1987) I mean Big Numbers on the side, i'm pretty sure that I remember little numbers on the back of the helmets in the mid 90s

I'm not a fan of going orange, but the navy helmets with the oversized AU logo some have posted hit home with me. IMNSHO, it would mesh well with CGM's style of play.
I'm also a fan of the updated throwback looks... if that makes sense. I would post pictures if I weren't on my Cam phone.
Just a suggestion, if you took the white/orange/white stripes and run them from the underarm to down the side. It stays hidden for the most part but adds a change.
Possibly change up the numbers a bit, possibly change the style of number used or maybe outline it with a thin orange line around the number.
small changes could make a huge difference.
One reason I would love to bring forward an updated look from the past is that CGM has brought forward offensive ideas from yesteryear with updated strategies and modern athletes.
I would seriously consider a new look this season to as a tie in to the mentality being projected in the statement that "It's a new day".
As the songs says - DON'T SLOW DOWN!! Eufaula, Alabama! WDE!!!
Agreed. Those Navy helmets looked awesome to me.
I was going to put a witty joke here, but I forgot bama fans still use picture books. So I thought I'd expedite the process for you...
I agree with loving the navy helmets and I would like to see a throwback uniform that resembles the tear away jersey era, which I think would look awesome in a uga v au game.
I guess we just have to have this same old conversation every year.
kick 'em in the ass, big blue.
