Throwback Uniforms

Post by Maverik_Aggie » August 17th, 2016, 3:50 pm

Does anybody else think it would be cool to have a throwback night for a football game? Basketball too? It would be sweet to see our guys put on some old uniforms!

Our history is so bad, the only uniform we could go back to without PTSD is something from Merlin's era. Maybe the Vegas Bowl or Humanitarian Bowl years ('93 and '97).

I'm sure there are a few of us whose PTSD would kick into high gear seeing throwback unis.

There's not really much to go back to, except for helmets, but I do really like it when they wear W-B-W because those are our classic colors. I feel like they don't do it near enough.

I really want a Pewter (or gray or silver) helmet. I think it would look sweet with the current bull logo or even the U-State logo with maybe a single navy stripe down center (front to back).

Not only was the '61 FB team the best ever at USU, their home uniforms were likewise. Scouting coaches (they did that a lot back then, before the digital age) use to start their reports by writing a paragraph on the Aggies' uniforms.

I could get behind these ones with pewter pants, blue jersey with pewter stripes and a pewter helmet with a single blue stripe like our helmets in the 60s.

Something waaaay old in the 60s/70s would be cool. I like seeing different schools throwback uniforms. This post probably won't make any noise, just an idea.

Thanks for the throwback bball pics! I'm up for a throwback bball night.

An idea for football is we could do the block A on the helmets?

Any idea what the "B" on a couple of those jerey's stood for?

Also, the socks would be fantastic.

I wish we would have kept red as an accent color. It looks really good.

Just a guess, but the two Bs are probably Basket Ball.
