New Florida Football Uniforms?


New Florida Football Uniforms

New Florida football uniforms appear to be on tap for next season, though aesthetic changes are pretty minor, the jerseys largely adhering to the current look of the Gators.

The numbers appear to be a size larger, while the number font sports some slight alterations, with the edges now going for 90° angles rather than the previous, more rounded style. You can ignore the “FLORIDA” on the back nameplate; that’s likely just a placeholder and does not necessarily indicate you’ll see that on the game jerseys. (Nike does that with most of their uniform mock-ups.)

In all likelihood –assuming these are in fact the new Florida jerseys — this will be a function-over-fashion kind of update, like we saw with USC and Florida State last year. For example, the sweatbox that you can barely see on the stomach of Rod Johnson represents a contrast in materials that Nike often does on their college football jerseys (and all the NFL jerseys, I think) — different sections of the jersey call for different materials, from a performance standpoint, in order to offer the best fit, feel and breathability possible. (While virtually unnoticeable now, the stomach will appear darker, two-tone style, with about three quarters of sweat in it.)

Oddly, you can’t see Flywire in the jersey collar, which is a hallmark of Nike’s performance-updated jerseys, though it may just not be visible in these photos.

Anyway, grain of salt and all that, but stay tuned for further news regarding Florida (and college football uniforms in general).
