(Keep in mind, this is all coming from an Army fan, but I’ll try to stay as unbiased as possible.)
Earlier yesterday, Navy and Under Armour revealed the Mids’ new uniforms for the Army-Navy game that will be “honoring” their long time mascot, Billy the Goat. Billy is featured on the side of the helmet and on the cleats, which is a neat touch.
I must say that I really love the helmet. The shell looks extra glossy, almost chrome, but not quite. Accompanied by a chrome gold facemask and chrome-ish stripes, I think that looks pretty fly (for a navy helmet). I must say that I’m not a huge fan of the logo, but it still looks alright.
Other than that, there’s not much to say about it. The jerseys are meh, and I don’t like the sleeves. Especially the block N on them, I really don’t think that looks good.
The pants aren’t terrible, but probably could be better. Very much like USF’s UA uniforms last season, so that’s something… interesting. But not great.
Now, while I personally don’t hate the uniform, it’s gotten some different reactions, even from Mids themselves…
Not to mention from us at F5:
“They are boring but they aren’t terrible for the first time in a while”
“Probably would have done something different with the shoulder”
But not all of them were negative:
“I don’t think they are boring. IMO they are clean. Not too flashy.”
I really think the only thing of substance in this uniform is the helmet. That’s really it. I do agree that it’s not “too flashy” and that “it’s not terrible for the first time in awhile”, but it’s nothing great.
And as an Army fan, I have faith in Nike and the equipment staff to come out with some utterly sick uniforms for the Black Knights.
