Penn State Football: Nittany Lion Uniforms Once Again Rated The Best In College Football
In a world that loves flashy and expensive sometimes the best things in life are also the most basic.
Many Penn State football fans have believed for a very long time that plain and simple uniforms are the best. And that feeling is again being validated.
NFL.com continued an offseason series with a look at some of the most iconic uniforms in college football.
Topping the list? Penn State.
“There’s just something great about seeing seeing the clean lines and classic look of the Nittany Lions once the team will take the field with a white-out at Beaver Stadium,” Bryan Fischer wrote on NFL.com.
New head coach James Franklin hasn't commented on the look of the Nittany Lions under his watch although he has often alluded to his respect for history.
When asked by the Big Ten Network for his plans to change the iconic look, Franklin said. “Are you trying to get me killed? Is that what you’re trying to do? Yeah, that ain’t happening around here. That’s not going to happen around here.”
There's no decision yet on whether Penn State uniforms will feature the players' names. Former head coach Bill O'Brien added names, sparking a small controversy. Franklin could opt to keep the monikers, or go back to the old no-name style.
Oregon, Washington, Notre Dame, and Arkansas rounded out the 2014 five best uniforms in college football, according to the NFL.com list.
