07:25 AM ET 08.02 | Oregon, of course, is the headliner -- but the numbers of college programs with multi-uniform approaches grows by the year. If Nebraska -- and Wisconsin, and Michigan -- are giving in to the trend of non-traditional uniforms, can the Sooners be far behind? Maybe. Bob Stoops says it's possible. ... Stoops knows what a firestorm that would cause among older-generation fans. He also knows how attractive it would be to potential recruits. . ... [I] received an email from the father of a former OU player. I thought it was interesting enough to share. Berry, I just read your blog on the Baylor gold helmet and the trend of being like Oregon filtering through college football. Let me tell you, my son told me numerous times the players at OU were getting tired of the same uniforms every game."

teams like OU, Bama, USC, Texas, etc.. shouldn't screw with the uniforms

If you're on the top 10 list of all time wins, its a safe bet your uniforms haven't changed in decades.

Leave that for the guys desperate to recruit; maybe that is 0U now :)

Well, IMHO, zero u and the rusty cows both (along with a lot of other overly traditional schools) need a uniform "upgrade" to the modern era. However, if they go to the Maryland extreme, I say stay with the old "iconic" ones.

Kids nowdays are easily influenced by anything shiny and new.

I like the look of the Sooners in their dark jerseys and the Longhorns in their dark jerseys.
I do not like the white-on-white ice cream suits.

Still look ugly.

Same goes for PSU and OU when they wear white on white.

Nuttin' wrong with the colors for either school. Even white on white is okay but spruce it up a little.

Agreed, I don't care for the Gators white unis, never have, nor the orange jerseys either. Not to mention the fact that they have played some real clunker games in the orange tops.

If you want to see REALLY ugly unis ... that would be maroon!
