Washington State Unveils New Uniforms

The Cougars revealed their new Nike designed uniforms Monday.  Overall, they don't look notably different from previous uniforms, but I really think dropping the silver helmet in favor of gray is a mistake.  As a traditionalist, I've always liked Wazzu's uniforms, which I think are one of best in the Pac-10, if not the country.  Fortunately, the Cougars' logo, arguably the most recognizable in the entire NCAA, doesn't change.  I am especially mystified as to the appeal of the gray on gray version, but this is the trend today.  Programs increasingly favor the sleek, nontraditional look.
