In their second SEC home series, the Bulldogs stayed consistent and wore the Maroon MS jersey with white pants on Friday. On Saturday, they wore the Pinstripes, and on Sunday, the Cream unis returned, being worn with the Maroon Hat.
The Bulldogs busted out the highly-anticipated road gray throwbacks in their Tuesday loss to Southern Miss. The 12th out of 17 combos, the grays are reminiscent of ones worn during the Jonathan Papelbon era.
The Bulldogs unveiled combo #11 for their road opener this weekend, wearing it on both Friday and Sunday. This combo was the Maroon MS jerseys with gray pants. The other uniform worn on the weekend was the Maroon 80's jersey with white pants, which was worn on Saturday.
Combo #10 was the most memorable one yet. In what will undoubtedly be one of my favorite unis from this season, the white pullover with the green/maroon (depending on your viewing angle) 80's script was paired with a green hat with a white front panel. Even the batting helmets for the game were green with a white front panel.
In their DH SEC opener, the Bulldogs started off by wearing the Pinstripe uniforms. After giving up 8 runs in the 8th inning of a game that looked to be heading towards a win for the Bulldogs, they changed jerseys for the second game. This resulted in the unveiling of combo #8 of 17: Maroon MS jersey with pinstripe pants.
On Sunday, the Bulldogs, to my dismay, bucked the trend of wearing the Cream Unis on Sunday. Instead, they debuted Combo #9, the Black Pullover with white pants. This isn't a bad combo by any means; the white pants look MUCH BETTER than the pajama black pants. However, it simply doesn't compare to the Cream unis on home Sundays.
Through 19 games in the 2015 non-conference season, the Bulldogs have posted a 15-4 record and have worn 7 of their 17 uniform combinations. So far, there have been no huge surprises, but a multitude of small ones, as expected. My preseason predictions as to what the 17 uniform combinations have proved fairly accurate thus far. The following 7 combinations have been revealed:
The Bulldogs debuted combo #7 out of 17 Tuesday vs Western Kentucky. I knew this was coming, and I'm glad it came on a midweek game. The Black Pullover with Black Pants and a black and white front paneled hat is the dreaded combination. The pants are the only thing I hate; I think the jersey and hat will actually look good with white pants. It certainly trumps the camo jersey that awaits....
On Wednesday, the Bulldogs wore the Maroon 80's jersey with white pants for the third time in a midweek game.
In their first three game weekend series, the Bulldogs wore the Maroon MS jersey with white pants on Friday, the White MS jersey on Saturday, and the Cream unis with the Cream Hat on Sunday.
The Bulldogs started off the third weekend of play wearing the Maroon MS jersey for the third Friday in a row. On Saturday, the Bulldogs busted out combo #6 of 17- the Pinstripe uniform- but with an unfortunate twist. Reminiscent of the Philadelphia Phillies in the 80's, the uniform has a stripe running down the pants, side of the jersey, and the top of the shoulder (which ends in a ribbon shape, similar to the football uniforms worn from 2012-2014). The general response from the fan base is that Adidas is over-designing, which I agree with. The pinstripes are not as sharp as the were in 2013 and 2014, but they are still a nice look. In what seems to be becoming the usual, the Bulldogs rolled out the Creams unis on Sunday, with the Maroon hat this weekend.
