August, 2012. The Aggies are trying to replace a first-round quarterback and are gearing up for the hardest division in the country with a brand-new coach from a C-USA school. Expectations were all over the map and largely non-existent. Which was fortunate here, as SB Nation’s newest blog was cobbled together with grifters from various corners of the college football internet. Our first article ever got one sorry-ass retweet (it me).
We all came through 2012 pretty well, and we’ve been coasting ever since. Proud to almost share it this BD with a legend TBH.
UCLA = Uniforms Create Legendary Aspirations. Are you one of those good folks who clamor for "traditional" uniforms? None of this fancy glitz and glamour, just win the dang football? If so, welcome. It’s good for you to stray away from Facebook once in a while. Anyway, you will be relieved to know that Kevin Sumlin isn’t nearly as uniform-mad as the Bruins’ Jim Mora. Just listen to how far into the garment weeds he strays in this piece:
"It’s a complete shoulder stripe, I’m finally able to say," Mora said.
AT LAST. OUR LONG NATIONAL NIGHTMARE IS OVER AND YOU CAN STOP PAUSING YOUR TV TO COLOR THAT STRIPE IN WITH A SHARPIE
Mora said that the jerseys utilize different fabrics on both the jersey and the pants. The players got to test them out during practice this past week, just to get use to them and see if any changes or alterations needed to be made.
Mora spent much of the offseason scouring the Egyptian riverlands for just the right cotton blend, paddling a great wooden canoe while dictating his descriptions of the garments to a harried GA in the manner of J. Peterman.
