Florida State Football Getting New Uniforms, Helmets
April 4th, 2014| by Lost Lettermen
The fan fury surrounding Florida State’s controversial logo change will likely only get louder at the news that the Seminoles’ beloved football uniforms are also undergoing a facelift. But Tomahawk Nation’s Bud Elliott insists that unlike the logo change, the new uniforms will be something that FSU fans can rally behind.
“While I have not seen the new uniforms, I have been told by three people I trust who have seen them that the uniforms look great, and are not ‘Oregon-ish,’ ” Elliott wrote on Thursday. “These folks are traditionalists, and seem to like the uniform changes more than the logo.”
Among those yet-to-be-seen changes, per Elliott:
- Incoporation of the Seminole Tribe imagery on the shoulder pads
- The spears on the helmets “now cross in the back of the helmet and are more Nike-ized” like the Seattle Seahawks’ helmet
- A new matte garnet helmet with “color-change paint” and a gold face mask (one that Elliott believes is an alternate lid)
- A standard gold helmet featuring a gold face mask (Elliott says there is speculation that this will be the new official helmet)
Not even Oregon can match the anticipation for these new uniforms.
