New North Texas Uniforms

I was really liking our current uniforms. I know I will probably be scolded for saying this, but I did not like the look of the uniforms prior to switching to Under Armour. I have a few suggestions when designing new uniforms:

1. Keep the same kelly green we already have. Please don't throw in another shade of green into the mix.

2. Incorporate both white & black into the uniform. I did not like having the same color jersey and pants (circa 2000)

3. Either keep the North Texas that we already have on the helmet or just put the players number on the side. (think Alabama)

4. KEEP THE WHITE HELMETS!! Just cause we're the Mean Green doesn't mean we have to be covered in it from head-to-toe. The new uniforms can be tastefully designed to represent us being the Mean Green without overdoing it.

In my humble opinion the new uniforms should incorporate kelly green, hunter green and lime green. These uniforms would celebrate all the colors worn by our football teams over the years.

<--- An interlocked NT would be AWESOME!

And make these darn unis available to the PUBLIC, ALUMNI and FANS as well! No one-offs or "wanna be"s here we want the real deal!

Call me crazy, but I'd like to see a Black design of some sort as well, black out day for fans, whole nine yards... You know, where them once a year or so...

We got to get the green thing figured out for sure, and I'm all for getting out from under UA, I think Nike does a better job of providing merchandise for consumer consumption, hats, t-shirts, polo's, whole nine yards...

AAAGGGHHHH !!!!

I thought we'd been through this. Repeat after me. "Glory to the Green. Glory to the White."

period.

Black uniforms are not a good topic for the FB forum:

Thank you green Joe. I'm with you- no black uniforms.

Ha!! I'm going to say no to black, also. I do love the all white uni's with the white helmet though. I'm not a fan of "North Texas" on the helmet but do prefer the white helmets. I'm more of a traditionalist, but also like the crazy stuff Oregon does. You can file me in the pile of "no help whatsoever." :)

This would be nice.

And regardless of the flame pictures, I still like Black Uni's... All white is boring. We looked like a HS team out there the past 4 yrs...

My opinion, don't expect anyone to agree, all good. They're called suggestions for a reason. You know, open discussion.

It's bad enough that the GREEN BRIGADE is dressed in nearly all black. We don't need the MEAN GREEN to be wearing all black.

Imagine the cheers...

East: "MEAN!!!"
West" "BLACK with a little green accent!!!!"

The design does not really matter to me as long as we keep the same shade of green. The athletic department has branded itself the last few years using that shade of green. Mccarney should not be allowed to mess with the color at all. The design is fair game though.

AND NO ALL BLACK UNI'S!

Hello little box, let's stay right in here. You know, where everybody's comfy, our uniforms change every 3 yrs, as do the logo, color scheme, helmet design.


And I never said all Black... Thanks for those words in my mouth...

Here's what you said.

I read that as all black. Perhaps I misread.

Or perhaps I mis-typed... touche... Quick edit, and we're golden...

Its time for a new logo. Nike does a great job of marketing a school though its merchandise. Having North Texas or Mean Green on hats if fine but it would be nice to be like the other schools and just have a logo besides the diving eagle.

Now please forgive how crude these are, I sketched them very quickly.



Simple NT that can be outlined, shadowed, etc. I have seen similar ones on here that probably look better.

Overlapping letters which I think look very nice, it would look good on UNT gear.

This one I like the best. Very nice and would look excellent IMO.

again forgive the crudeness I just wanted to see if anyone liked these.

It's not about being in a little box, or not thinking outside of it. The color scheme has been a very important part of the UNT branding for the last several years. Not just UNT athletics. You don't just up and change that because a new coach is hired. We finally found something that works, and looks good in the stands. Give Coach Mac full authority to change the design, but we really cannot afford another shade change. Even the signs for the buildings on campus were changed a couple years ago from hunter green to kelly green.

I suspect we'll only use existing approved logos. We won't be implementing any new logos.

Please explain this. All white makes us look like a HS team? Someone should probably let UT and the Indianapolis Colts know, they are soooooo HS.

Why in the world would we go get a new logo at this point? Use one of the existing, approved logos and let it be.

I just hope we don't look like Iowa St South or Florida East. Southlake Carroll North was bad enough

No to the black unifroms. If we simply MUST go with the overused black, black pants is the most we should have. Personally, I suggest dark green helmets with kelly green uniforms, I like the idea of Dark blue with Light blue that NC has.

Option 1, Our current green with black pants or green pants option, and a green helmet or

Option 2, Current green jerseys with Emerald green helmets and pants.

I would love to have an interlocking NT, but since that will never happen, I like the current eagle logo for a helmet design.

re-branding and marketing purposes. New sponsor, new coach, new stadium, etc. we have a new start and can go in a different direction. Its a good time to create a new culture and identity.


My main reason for presenting those was no one like the current "North Texas" script on the helmet. I was just throwing out some ideas of something else we could do just for fun. Don't blow a fuse, its not like I'm officially unveiling logo designs :rolleyes:

I don't want to see the Mean Green playing in black uniforms, in fact I don't want black anywhere on the uniforms. I like the clean and classic look of just the green and white.

Also, I don't like the idea of having green helmets, I would like to see us keep them white with the green SOW.

Im excited about the switch to Nike, hopefully we keep our same color green...it seems as if there is a problem of constant change.

Don't count on new logos. UNT went through 2 of them in the 3 years I was here as a student before the Son of Worm was designed. No interlocks, no overlapping nonsense as that's the sort of "me-too" thinking the Son of Worm generation was designed specifically not to be.

Also, the current unis are fine, they just need the green helmet, Son of Worm on the side, "UNT" on the little white parts at the base of the helmet" and that's it. And all black? Maybe, but they'll have to be done just right.
