Begun in 1892, Boston College's football team was one of six "Major College" football programs in New England as designated by NCAA classifications, starting in 1938.[1] By 1981, and for the remainder of the twentieth century, BC was New England's sole Division I-A program.[2] It has amassed a 62444437 record and is 99540 since the turn of the 21st century.

That picture is 1893 but the team started in 1892, I had season tickets that year I should know.

Re: 2012 NFL Uniform Thread - Nike takes over

Whether you like the alternate uni or not I think everyone has to agree it could have been worse and thankfully not as bad as say the Steelers. So because of that I like them. Yes the helmet is different but the alternate uni is supposed to be from a time in which they used leather helmets and they were brown so this is just meant to give respect to those times.

However I'd love for them to keep the pants. Thats the Gold I'm looking for, not the yellow we have now, and I like the darker burgundy vs. the lighter burgundy we use now.

Re: 2012 NFL Uniform Thread - Nike takes over

I understand people don't want to look like some other team. Some just dispise BC or FSU, thats ok. So since we are not going to be able to get everyone to decide on the team actually using the colors they started with or colors according to their team colors are supposed to be then to satisfy the fans who hate and dispise change....

I'll settle for DS making a public announcement that he is changing the team colors to Indian Red and Yellow. Then no one can argue that the team is not wearing their team colors, and those fans who hate change can be happy they get to keep their non BC/FSU, original colors.

They'd prefer to look like Southern California (Trojans), or Arisona State, Central Michigan University, Ferris State University, University of Minnesota.

List of College Colors

Personally I prefer the metalic gold and dark burgundy. Teams that use these similar colors are:

BC
FSU
Texas State University
Bridgwater College

Re: 2012 NFL Uniform Thread - Nike takes over

The throwback uniform that Brian Orakpo and Ryan Kerrigan modeled the other day resemble the Boston College Eagles football team's jersey so much. Has anyone else made this observation?

You are either the greatest troll ever or living in a world of complete obliviousness. You make me feel as if this is an inside joke I am not in on. Please, take a bow.

Re: 2012 NFL Uniform Thread - Nike takes over

So I've read we will only wear the alternate uni's for 2 games so I'm thinking at least one game will probably be Thanksgiving day. I'd presume the other would be a prime time game also if we have another one.

Re: 2012 NFL Uniform Thread - Nike takes over

The closeups allow you to appreciate the helmet so much more than just looking at it from afar. At first I wasn't a fan of the color of them, but seeing the closeups and how they were to resemble the old leather caps, I like it. HGI did great work on this along with Nike on the uniforms. Can we just stick with these for the whole year?..lol

The Packers throwbacks are pretty bad too.

I agree, awesome helmets. Very unique. I bet they become a best seller as far as alternate or retro uniforms go for the franchise. (Especiallly since its you know whos first year aas well)

Yep. Those are from the 2010 season. Apparently they aren't wearing a throwback this season.

But it's still bad.

Hands down, the best throwbacks out there belong to the Detroit Lions.








I love the simple uniforms.
