Jim McElwain on New Uniforms

We’ve seen a lot of garbage uniforms floating around this off season.  Some coaches even seem to think the new uniforms help you play better.  As Bama fans, we know all that is bunk.  It has nothing to do with uniforms.  Former Tide offensive coordinator and current head coach at Colorado State, Jim McElwain, puts the uniform issue into perspective:

Colorado State head coach Jim McElwain has a couple of concerns, but the new uniforms look of the Rams isn’t one of them.

McElwain explained on Monday, “I’ll tell you the impact I had. I wish we would wear our practice jerseys and our practice uniforms and go out and learn how to block and tackle and play. To me you have to earn the uniform. As of right now we haven’t done any of that. I do believe we will and I do believe we will in time. To be quite upfront about it, one of the least things I worry about is uniforms and picture day. You want to talk about something that really has no impact on what you do on a daily basis.”

McElwain is probably worth keeping an eye on.  In terms of Saban disciples, I wouldn’t be surprised if he turns out to be the most successful one to date.

  1. It wouldnt take much to be the most successful one to date. Son o’ Dooley & Muschamp have sucked.

  2. That’s the most curmudgeonly take on new uniforms I’ve heard yet, and I completely agree with him. College football’s tossing tradition out the window for some goofy gimmick jerseys that aren’t even available for sale (so we can’t even claim it’s a marketing ploy). Let’s go back to a time before Oregon made alternate uniforms “the rage” in college, and just focus on playing football.
