New Football Uniforms coming in May? - Update: Confirmed

May 15th Update: Due to statements from Whit and Pry during the ACC Media Days, this is now confirmed to be happening in May.

Neither Babcock nor Pry gave a full rundown of what the new unis will look like, but they did confirm it'll have a more classic feel that goes away from the collarbone-striped look Tech adopted in a re-brand ahead of the 2018 season.

Pry said he went to some of the Hokies coaches and staffers who played during Tech's heyday β€” like defensive line coach J.C. Price and safeties coach Pierson Prioleau β€” to get their input, presenting them with a lineup of options and getting from them a thumbs up or thumbs down. They narrowed down the choices and repeated the process before coming to a final design that Pry said pulls from the Michael Vick days.

"It's a more traditional look and people I believe will appreciate it," said Babcock, who thinks they'll be revealed in "a week or so."

Also made mention that there will be more variety with the logos on the helmets going forward, so I would probably expect the stacked VT and possibly the Fighting Gobbler to return. I've also been seeing a script Hokies helmet making the rounds lately, and that could be an interesting possibility as well.

Original Post:

So I just noticed that Clark Ruhland (@Hokie20) is doing a countdown on Twitter...

Anyway, a comment on today's post seems to hint toward a coming announcement...

Truth is, if anyone would know it would be him given how involved he's been with branding over the years. Should this hold true, be on the lookout for an announcement on May 17th or 18th

His decision was made after a phone call with longtime Virginia Tech assistant coach Bud Foster. All Foster told him was, "We win. They don't."
