    Adidas has made a name for its self in the soccer community, as the popularity of soccer grows so does adidas. Frankly, unless America can make noise in the next olympics I don't see soccer popularity growing that much.

    I believe our old Nike contract provided us a new uniform design every 1-2 seasons. Does anybody have any insight on what to expect this year? Considering that we've had the same uni's for 2 seasons straight. I'd like to see a new font, maybe a gold alternative, names on the jerseys.

    Olympics soccer is a youth team tournament...

    And of course they made a name for themselves in soccer...they're a German company.

    Definitely need a gold alternative. That gray one the last two seasons was straight hideous.

    Did we even use the gray ones last season? I don't remember seeing them... Agree with adding the gold uni's.

    I have been wondering if we would see a new design this year as well. In my perfect world we would have 4 unis:

    Home white
    Road green
    Alternate gold
    Throwback white '88-89 (our first trip to the NCAA's)

    The throwback would be perfect for next year for the 18/19 season and 30th anniversary of the 88/89 team, in what will also be a year when we should have a legit chance at returning to the dance!

    Thankfully, we never wore the gray last year. I think the JMU game (Holloway's last game before leaving) was the last time we wore gray.

    We should do yellow again, but considering the limited options adidas has most likely we would be making a step down. The only uni adidas makes that is maybe better than what we have is the Falcon uni on p.43. But I'm afraid we'd end up with subtraction by addition.

    Come on, Vurbel. As a longtime GMU fan you should know it's GOLD, not yellow! :cool:

    I agree with the throwbacks, Gunnie. I do have a soft spot in my heart for those uni's since that was also my senior year at Mason...

    Bucknell's uniforms with the alternating blue and orange piping down the sides are pretty sweet in a 70s throwback way. Don't know if Dave would want to copy his former school but I'd be OK with it.

    I would be fine with that. It's the only other uni that actually looks ok.

    I just hope Mason can pick consistent colors already. I really like the hunter green yellow look, but at this point as long as they are consistent I don't care.

    My bad! When I think gold I think Notre Dame, Florida State, and Georgia Tech.

    With short shorts back on the rise...why doesn't Adidas just make some exclusively shorter shorts. 75% of our team already just rolls up the shorts anyways, why not just have the team rocking some old school Stockton shorts? Make the short shorts our thing.

    I hate yellow, Hunter green, and gray. I do not like the Adidas uniforms.

    I really liked the Cam Long era green unis with straight "George Mason" on the front.

    Compromise? How about the yellow, er, gold version?

    That was my favorite uniform too. But I don't think we're getting "George" back on the jerseys any time soon, given the branding campaign to unite all of our programs under the "Mason" banner.
