GREAT HERB TYLER’S GHOST. Out of nowhere, LSU unveiled some brand new special uniforms for this weekend’s Gold Game vs Mississippi St. After last year’s white-on-white-on-white “Stormtrooper” combo, I though LSU Football uniform design had peaked, but this is just fantastic.
Let’s start with what’s awesome
- Y. A. Tittle Font
- BLOCK L BACK
- Hidden Sailor Mike
- White Lids
I’m only slightly reserved about the color because depending on how it’s lit, it seems to hover between LSU’s modern “canary yellow” gold and a darker, traditional “brown mustard” gold. We’ll have to wait to see them in person this weekend under the lights for final judgement, but these seem fantastic.
The uniform combination of white/gold/white is possibly a first for LSU in the modern era, and The Gold Jersey, the legendary magic bringer of LSU Baseball and Basketball, hasn’t been seen on the gridiron since a string of games in the mid 90’s
