Kansas is going chrome in 2014.
The school teased "Crimson Chrome" uniforms the team will wear at some point this fall. The uniforms are all-red and feature a chrome helmet with an oversized Jayhawk logo.
KU makes a statement with their new jerseys: If you don't have history, have chrome!! pic.twitter.com/cJkdHbkt6t— Mike Welch (@RealMikeWelch) August 13, 2014
While chrome helmets are quickly becoming an overused trend, it's not one of the two weird things about the uniform. First, the jerseys would look a lot better without the Jayhawk logo on the shoulderpads. It looks awkward and out of place, don't you think? Numbers or even nothing at all would be a better choice. Second, the Jayhawk isn't exactly the best logo for an oversized helmet logo, right?
You want a logo that looks somewhat scary and awesome. Nothing against the Jayhawk, but is a giant cartoon bird a good look like that on a helmet?
