Top Uniforms: #3 Florida State

3. Florida State Seminoles

My favorite non-traditional uniform. The spear on the side of the helmet and the garnet and gold (and Charlie Ward) made the Seminoles my second favorite team as a kid. It might just be the athletes they’ve had the last twenty years but even their bad teams of the last few years have looked like they could play. Just a supercool uniform.

Nike has had an impact on their uniforms but they haven’t really screwed them up like they did their instate rivals to the southeast. The only things I don’t like are the small merit decals on the helmets (those are always stupid) and the multi-colored jersey collar.

Check back tomorrow for the second best college football uniform.

    You had me right up until the collar comment.

    FSU wears the traditional design & colors of the Seminole Tribe of Florida around the collar and sleeves to honor the legacy of the nation’s only undefeated tribe. That traditional element is one of the great elements of the FSU uniform.

    That is actually really cool Kevin, I had never heard that. I still don’t like the look of it (reminds me of zubaz pants), but I certainly can’t fault them for having it on there. Thanks for the info.
