Perhaps it was the new turf and the way the field was lit at Fresno, along with the contrasting uniforms for Fresno State - but I agree, those uniforms were the most underrated of the season in my opinion. I was actually hoping that is what they'd wear for the bowl game (although I am fine with what they wore).I have a pretty big soft spot for "full body Goldy" logo. Those helmets against Fresno were sweet.
Looking back that was one of my favorite combos, bit of a dark horse.
I loved the Kill era uniforms, and was rather bummed when they got changed. I think with the tweaks that have occurred to the Fleck unis (no more maxi-pad oar, no more "Minnesota" and "Golden Gophers" on the nameplates, among others), they have grown on me to the point where I'm not missing the Kill era unis anymore. I did really like how simple they were, especially the all maroon ones.It is tough to say this but I actually liked the Kill-era uniforms better with a couple exceptions. I like the introduction of more alternative helmets, like the chrome ones. I liked the way they upped their game on the use of different helmet decals and face mask colors on a weekly basis. I also like the use of Goldy on the helmets. I didn't think this would be the case but I also liked the white shoes. Other than that, I flat out liked the Kill era base uniforms better. This is particularly true with the anthracite alternatives. The current anthracite uniforms look like the old ones were left out in the sun too long. The old ones did a classy job of incorporating thick maroon trim and the darker shade of gray simply made them look more rich than the current ones.
Anything with that neon green incorporated is brutal.Couple of random other impressions-
-The MSU "neon" uniforms were beyond terrible. As were the "throwback" Wisky uniforms.
-The best non-Gopher uniforms here are the Northwestern "gothic" uniforms, the Purdue uniforms worn against the Gophers, or the standard PSU home unis.
