For the second week in a row, the Bulldogs wore an incredibly consistent uniform, with each uniform element (helmet, jersey, and pants) featuring the same three colors: maroon, white, and gray. And for the second week in a row, the Bulldogs lost an extremely close game on the road. Correlation =/= Causation. This is not a "These uniforms are bad luck" situation. This is a "Hey, at least the uniforms are good" situation. Actually, that's what 2016 should be remembered as: the rebuilding year where the results were disappointing but the uniforms vastly improved. I'm sure that will stick.
I know a lot of fans aren't a fan of the white helmets, most citing that white helmets were worn exclusively during the less-than-successful 2004-2008 season. I'm personally a fan of the white helmets however; they're the best road helmet option this year if the matte maroon helmets really have been removed from the lineup this season. They're actually matte white themselves, so in that sense they continued the streak of wearing matte helmets vs Kentucky to 6 years.
With new white jerseys and pants that replaced black outlines and the oversized M-State logo with Maroon-Gray-Maroon stripes, the all-White look is vastly improved from a year ago. Like last week, this is an extremely consistent uniform, and a very solid look that I hope to see again in the future.
This week's jersey model is #34 Cory Thomas, who caused a fumble in the 4th quarter that completely flipped the game and gave the Bulldogs a great chance to win.
