Looks like we aren't the only ones getting new football unis in 2018

The Poos Hoos appear to have accidentally unveiled their new uniform set on social media the other day...

Silly Hoos, its been 14 years of the Commonwealth Cup residing in Merryman, not 13. Though, I can forgive a Hoo for not being able to count past their fingers.

Honestly I think they are kind of sharp. The ones they have worn the past years looked really cheap but I give them credit for trying to emulate the on field product with their uniforms. Now it'll just be like my golf game, look good play like shit.

Arkansas blew a 24-0 lead in the Belk Bowl.

Those'll do the trick.

Man, are we fucked.

You're the only ones that I can talk to about this, you guys.

That team sure did suck last night. They just plain sucked! I've seen teams suck before, but they were the suckiest bunch of sucks that ever sucked.

It could be worse; you could be a Redskins fan...

Blue 13 looks like your typical Hoo lineman, so props to them for that

The only difference is, if you put that mannequin in front of a quarterback, it may be able to block.

Silly EPW, even these mannequins couldn't block the 48 defense.

Jimmy Johnson now plays defense?

The biggest joke is them using the state flag for photo ops since we own this state when it comes to football.

An all white flag would be more appropriate for them.

Not a fan of the 2 different colored stripes on the helmet.
The uniform and pants are fine for the most part
Looks like they are the latest team to adopt the anti-serif numbers

Anti-serif: not really sure what to call them, but instead of a flag/stroke added to the number, a small chunk is removed. Michigan State was the first team I noticed that used them, but now they are EVERYWHERE.

I mean, we did it better....

My favorite VT uniform personally.

It was a catch!

If I made a funny comment I probably stole it from Reddit.

Their orange just looks like a turd that's been flushed three times but still won't go down

#hardthingstogether means taking a picture between two mannequins?

Is it football season yet?

Have we received an official confirmation that we're getting new uni's next season?

Yes.

Is this Auburn?

We put the K in Kwality

I believe Auburn's colors were chosen because their first head coach was a UVA alum, so kinda?

No. We will be going with UVA stole them from Auburn.

I'd be a lot more interested in seeing ours.

As far as UVa goes, you can dress them up, but you can't take them anywhere.

Took them behind the woodshed for over a decade now.

Outspoken team cake advocate. Hates terrapins. Resident Macho Man Gif Poster. Distant cousin to Dork Magic. Frequently misspells words.

We need to keep doing that, but the real interest now needs to be Miami and FSU.

they'll lose in those unis too!

So do we burn down the AD HQ when our unis are unveiled with similar shoulder stripes but different colors? I will start making torches...

If we get another uniform with shoulder stripes...

Well, fuck.

I haven't been the least bit impressed with any of the graphic related stuff I've seen from Ruhland.

Are you making a general comment or implying he designed the uniforms?

General Comment. He's been involved in several things related to sports graphics, and he is commenting by not commenting on having some knowledge of whatever is going on with our uniforms. If he's had a hand in what was chosen for the design, I'm not getting my hopes up.

He is a part time graphics designer, part time nascar spotter and is not designing the VT uniforms- Nike's Mid-Atlantic cohort does that with rubber stamp from Oregon at some point- but the guys in Beaverton that design Durant's shoes and Ohio States uniforms aren't "designing" VT's. At any rate, Ruhland does "some" promotional designs for VT, and is very connected to the program, but he is not the only designer and certainly doesn't have final say on anything you will see on the field.

Where are we storing the torches?

I've been cutting back on the drinking.

The only place with enough unused space: Scott Stadium.

Come to Blacksburg and see what the Hokie Pokie is really all about

I feel like torches and Charlottesville may not be a great combination right now.

Of course I talk to myself, sometimes I need expert advice.

Very underwhelming, and is the flag bearer one a "throwback"? There is a "new" orange one in the back with the new font- the front orange one makes no sense unless it is a throw back.

The look on this kids face is pure regret... haha just made me smile. Kinda like knowing no matter what uniform you wear the future will be bad for UVA

Hello darkness my old friend...

I don't give a damn what the fans think cause, quite frankly, I know what the fans want better than they do.

The guy with the flag is a current uni, and the two on each side are new. The two stripes on the helmet on the right is kind of a throwback. Similar to the helmets worn back in the Welsh era, except there is a white space between the two stripes.

Take the shortest route to the ball and arrive in bad humor.

Really hoping for a maroon and white version of the uni's we wore against UNC. Those were cleeeeeeean.

It's a Tide Ad!

Sometimes we live no particular way but our own

I've heard that it will be something similar to those. Haven't heard anything about the stripes though.

Bedazzled shoulder stripes

"Some days you’re a horse and some days you’re a horse’s ass. I’ve been a horse’s ass for a little while." - Roy Halladay

If it keeps the clean look while incorporating both school colors I'll be a fan. The orange ones we wore were just not VT enough for my tastes. Maroon jerseys without orange will leave me with the same complaint.

VT Class of '12 (MSE), MVBone, Go Hokies!

UVA and VT get their gear from the same Nike affiliated "local" place, so I would not be surprised if they are similar.

How funny would it be if they were EXACTLY the same?! Just different color.

We put the K in Kwality

Any idea on timeline of announcement/design release?

Late spring/early summer.

To me, at a glance these look a lot like what folks think VT's new ones will look like. Funny how the UVa version isn't getting any kudos, but VT's version is awesome....

Personally I think they're both...bland and safe.

Funny how the UVa version isn't getting any kudos, but VT's version is awesome....

Well, yeah. Theirs is orange and blue, ours is orange and maroon. Thus....

Looks like Tarzan, plays like Jane

If we keep the shoulder stripes then I hope we go with this model. I think the maroons with an orange and white stripe would look clean and modern. Would also work well with the helmet stripe that we are supposedly keeping and with the new number font. Simply add those stripes to the uniforms to a maroon version of uniforms we wore against UNC and we are in business.

No.

I. WANT. SHOULDER. STRIPES

"What kind of person would throw away a perfectly good dog?"

I WANT SLEEVE STRIPES! LIKE THIS:

Well if you look closely at that tweet of all the 2018 signees as cartoonish looking characters...to me, that's kinda where the stripes look to be located.

How about Argyle uniforms? But not the UNC kind...

I want them to look like this... Except short sleeve, the white is maroon, the black is maroon, the orange is orange, and the Flyers logo is a giant gobbler (screw having to have the numbers on the front)

Here lies It's a Stroman Jersey I Swear, surpassed in life by no one because he intercepted it.

I wonder if this new uniform set would come with the rumored revision to the VT logo?

Glad I saved that to my imgur account before they took it down off the website.

The amount of hand wringing that goes on over uniforms has made me agnostic to them. No matter what the athletic department comes out with in a few months we'll all get to listen to a vocal minority deride them every chance they get until we do this whole song and dance over again in ~5 years.

The Orange and Maroon you see, that's fighting on to victory.

It's funny cause it's true. While VTGM rose to dominance by posting emma gifs, Alum gets legs by posting controversial comments. People who agree upleg him. People who disagree refrain from down voting because you aren't supposed to dv opinions. me? I just try to increase the noise to signal ratio and make people laugh.

I would really like to see a more modern version of the 99-03 uniform. There were numerous pictures like the one below making the rounds a few years ago. Something like this would be awesome.

But in all seriousness, I loved the matte maroon.

@HaydenDubya

I loved the idea of the gobbler on the helmet, but it didn't look good on TV. It just looked like an orange blob.

Up close...cool. Regular footage..blob.

I think a matte maroon helmet with gloss maroon gobbler would have been cool.

just like the hokiestone helmets, hokiestone camo pattern, hokie stone...well everything hokie stone looks great up close but looks somewhere between nondescript and crappy on TV.
