New Uniforms

I like the new uniforms. Very solid. My suggestion would be to create an additional alternate uniform that is all gold with navy letters and numbers (white accent).

Many of us swag junkies have been hoping for that for years now.

Riak definitely looks to have filled out his frame some. So many new names, and a lot of potential. Should be a much more tolerable season.

New uni's for 2018-19 B)

 

 

Beautiful.  Me like.  

Blue & GOLD in the color scheme.  

Beautiful script Akron on chest & right leg.  

Zippy Fear the Roo head at drawstring.  

Z (literally one of the coolest logos in all of sports) on left leg.

I'm just thrilled we actually have at least some uniforms that feature the actual school colors.

Anybody know when the purple will be worn?

 

 

I know they've always tried to work them in when Danny Peters was here with Ball State, in honor of his dad, but the Zips only play at Ball State this year.

They'll wear them November 10th versus YSU for the Coaches -v- Cancer game.  Clark's right, we wear them when we play BSU at home.  We only wear them two, maybe three times a year.

I like the uniforms overall, just never been a big fan of the script Akron. I'd rather that be bold print to represent the U. Also, not a fan of the white numbers on white jersey trend that seems to be taking place in the sports world but I am sure something else will be trendy before long. Still, having the school colors in the uni is a huge plus.

Agree. Maybe it's my eyes lol but I can barely even read that font. 

 

Alrar?

I love the script Akron on both the jerseys and football helmets.

One of my favorite Zips sweatshirt is navy (pretty faded now) with a chenille script Akron in gold....bought it at Rubber Bowl final season....still get raves about it, even from some of current Zip athletes when they’ve seen it....I too like the Scripts.  Plus it reminds me of when the marching band used to perform “Script Zips” with a tuba player dotting the “i “ ....take that Suckeyes!  :rock:

The script letters, look high school,and are playing out,bold letters are better.the color scheme is finally right, a nice golden alternative uniform might be nice.

 

There's a reason they look "high school." It the stock script font they took from the Nike Uniform catalog and just started slapping it on everything.

 

Nike Basketball Uniform Builder

 

Nothing really unique about it and it is hard to read.
