Most College Teams Were Recognizable Opening Week

Oh, those crazy college students.  They’ll do anything to make an impression on professors, administrators, and for athletes, the coaching and support staffs. 

That’s why in both the major TV sports, college football and basketball, along with some of the non-revenue programs (baseball) at many of the top athletic budgeted schools, the trend the last five years or so has been to “please the kids” by mixing and matching the authentic uniforms.

Sometimes its perhaps adopting a black jersey to go with school colors, and in some cases, throw all that we’ve come to expect about uniforms out the window (that’s the  Rutgers Silver Knights, no they didn’t change their name from Scarlet Knights, just their appearance in a win at Tulane Saturday night), and see what comes back from the laboratory. 

On opening week of the 2012 college season, other than the Oregon Ducks going back to the old school green/gold look from the 1990s but with the wacky web footed helmets and other bells and whistles, there was a lot to like about the classic looks by the top-ranked teams, and we liked the font and letter size of the Penn State player’s names on the back of the jerseys for the first time.

One final partisan note, boy, don’t the Syracuse Orange uniforms look great?

Authentically Speaking Trivia Time:  What year did MLB teams begin wearing Stars & Stripes caps, and how many models of the hat have there been over that time frame?  Answers coming on Wednesday.

Friday’s answer:  The Alabama Crimson Tide started wearing their maroon helmet with white uniform numbers and gray facemask in the 1960 season.

American Needle Fitted Hats

If you do not know your size, first determine where on your head you want to wear your hat. Usually it is worn about a half-inch to an inch above the eyebrows and/or just above the ears. Have a friend hold the tape measure (cloth, plastic, or download a printable version here) at the point where you want the hat to rest on your head.  Insert the tip of your little finger between the tape and your head.  Record the measurement and find your Fitted Hat size using the chart below.  This should provide you with a comfortable fit.

Apparel Sizing Tips:

Use these tips as a general guide when finding your measurements:

Chest/Bust: With your arms at your sides, measure around the fullest part of your chest, across shoulder blades and under arms.

Waist: To measure your natural waistline, wrap the tape so it intersects your navel. Keep tape flat, but comfortably loose.

Hips: Stand with your heels together and measure the fullest part of your hips. Make sure the measuring tape is level all the way around your body.

Inseam: Stand up straight, and start the tape measure high in your crotch. Straighten the tape down the inside of your leg to the bottom of your ankle.
