    Wasn’t the Suns’ Western Conference Championship in 1993, with the 30th Anniversary referring to the end of the season?

    After how Ranger Suarez melted down in that start, he should go back to wearing the stirrups backwards.

    And every change the Hurricanes make just makes things worse.

    My personal take – when Oregon wears black or gray/silver, it’s too boring. Best is when they wear the obnoxiously bright green or yellow looks. Also – the wings on the shoulders and/or helmets are legitimately just good ideas. Oregon should keep doing Oregon, but personally, those are my favorite Oregon looks for Oregon being Oregon.

    I didn’t realize that the Washington Whatchmacallits hadn’t already retired Sonny’s number. Wonder what the holdup was…

    College football uniform rankings mostly predictable; standard boiler plate article calling boring and ugly looks “iconic” in order to pander to so-called “brand names”. Rinse and repeat.

    I have all sorts of problems with the Carolina Hurricanes’ announcement:

    -The team is changing primary uniforms too frequently. There have been 2 new primary home jerseys since 2013 and now it appears will make way for a third. 4 different primary home jerseys since early 2013.

    -The black uniform being their primary looks too similar to another current primary uniform (Ottawa Senators).

    -The logo on the black jersey is fine as a secondary logo. It does not look great as a primary crest on the front of a jersey. 2 different shoulder patches is something that should stay in the minors or on a third jersey, not as a primary NHL jersey.

    -Their whole uniform ensemble lacks cohesion. I think they would be best suited going back to the original 1997 design as primary look. Or incorporate more silver trim instead of black to new red uniforms and have a colour sheme more signature to their identity. Instead of being another red and black team.

    If you remove the word “clean” from the Athlon top 25 listicle, there would be no content. Very superficial review overall. UGA and Bama behind Marshall and SMU? Your opinion, I guess.

    The Buffalo Bills’ insignia has the same look as the “NE” with the “hat and streamers” logo worn at times by Tom Brady. Were they designed by an apparel maker as a way of changing up team garb with the blessing of the NFL?

    The Bills logo was a part of their partnership with some local apparel brands when they finally embraced Bills Mafia as an organization / name for the fan base.
