April is officially New Uniform Month on the college football calendar. After new looks revealed this month at Syracuse, Miami, Illinois, Florida State and Washington, now Arkansas has taken its turn to debut its new kit. Each of those half-dozen schools wears Nike. Coincidence?
Speaking of Nike, its creative types like to use a lot of brand-speak, where they talk about how a team's history and it's style of play can somehow inspire a uniform font. They do get one thing right, however, and that's unifying a look throughout an entire athletics department.
As for the football uniforms, not much has changed here. Many won't even notice a change since the helmet (rightfully) remains untouched. The Hogs have moved away from the odd shoulder striping employed for the past two seasons.
The Hogs have created a pretty sharp landing page containing everything you'd ever want to know about all their new uniforms. Check it out.
