Photo: Houston has new uniforms on the way


Houston unveiled a new set of uniforms on Tuesday. And they show exactly how far we've come in the college football uniform world. 

The uniforms include two sets of jerseys, pants and helmets - red and white of each - with white side and shoulder panels on the red home jerseys, and red panels for the road white counterpart. Ten years ago, the shoulder panels would have been deemed the wave of the future or the end of college football as we know it, depending on your age bracket.

But today? The natural reaction is to wonder where the gray, black and chrome alternates are. No two-toned numbers, no shiny helmets. Just honest to God football uniforms.

What were they thinking?
