i think they are bad a$%. Wish we could do the white helmets though. Love the new gloves!
Those are awesome. Love the 90's look to the back of them. The "open mesh" looks really cool. Our jerseys in the early 90's looked just like that.
Regarding a subtle change to the helmet, I've always wanted to see white facemasks instead of gray. I know, I know.....Bama has traditionally always had the gray facemasks, however, it isn't one of the official school colors and seems out of place IMO. That is pretty much all I'd change with the uni's though.
Of course "Alabama" or any other word like "Commitment" or "Pride" isn't on the back of the jersey...come on people. We would never do that and to me it's one of the worst ideas for a uniform that was ever thought up.
I'm not sure you'll even be able to tell a difference on Monday night and that's alright by me. I would really like to see white helmets at some point but not for a game of this magnitude. White helmets are a part of our past too, it's not some goofy, new era change.
Lucky's idea isn't bad although I'm afraid it may make us look like Washington State. If I ever see a script "A" on our helmet or that houndstooth trim again, I may lose it. I'm all for trying something new once in a while but for God's sake don't make it look all Wal-Marty.
At one time, gray was the only color of facemask made. UA just never changed, and I like it.
This. I'd love to see a few minor changes and I stress minor.

One thing no one discusses are the shoes. If Nike would make an innovative crimson, black and charcoal cleat design with a white checkmark it would be a nice touch as well IMO.
Instead of continually changing it up, there is nothing wrong with updating or improving. We need that IMO.

Matte helmets suck! I hate those things. Hope we don't ever ruin ours by doing that crap.
"We don't talk about winning championships, we talk about being champions."
Backs of the jerseys should simply say...
Would love to see white helmets. I'll probably get down voted for this but Texas a&m's all white uni's and helmet they wore against us looked really good.
I like it.
I agree with Lucky. I wouldn't mind us wearing special uniforms/helmets for like 1 game a year
some crappy team we're going to trounce...
Im glad they let Jimmy Johns model them. Nice job Jimmy!
In Miami for 24 hours and AJ already tanned up.
It's funny how we all have so many different opinions on something as "minor" as subtle uniform changes. I still remember those pants with the Script A b/c I absolutely hated them and was scared to death it would be a permanent thing. Was so glad it wasn't. The problems Bama fans have nowadays...good times.
Per your ok w/down votes I gave you one. I think it's dangerous when in discussing uniform changes we have Oregon in the same sentence w/Alabama.
One question...when and where can I buy? ROLL TIDE!!!!
"To be the best; you have to beat the best...and BAMA...'nuff said. ROLL TIDE!!"
Nike will have a massive pop-up shop on South Beach...which will be 90% Alabama....but not sure if they'll sell these other than there.
Gloves will be on sale also...should go fast though. Really cool packaging for those.
I still want a pair of the gloves Mark Ingram wore to frame for my Man cave.
