    New uniforms for North Carolina A&T

    Every so often, I’d throw them a bone and put them in the Top Five list.
    That’s probably not happening this year. Typical Nike minimalist effort.

    As an Aggie alum, I’m just happy they’re going back to a minimalist, classic look. They’ve played around with gradients, grays, weird helmet colors, etc. in recent years.

    The classic Aggie look is blue and gold, but the stormtrooper look is a new one.

    The stormtrooper look was the deal breaker.
    Minimalism sometimes works with different colors. With just one, it’s mono-tonous.

    The shade of that batting helmet almost looks red. Maybe it’s a Houston Cougars batting helmet that was used as a fill-in.
