Traditionalists are yelling at the screen reading this. “We didn’t win national championships wearing all these different uniforms!” “You don’t touch the classic helmet.” “I hate them!” “You suck!” The debate lingers on. However consider a few factors on the alternatives. Mario Cristobal came from Oregon. Oregon has approximately 1,784,361 uniform combinations every season. There might be some subtle acclimation to this trend here at Miami. Maybe.
The other factors are the players and the place. The players love the drip. They do. Get off my lawn types need to take inventory here. I am willing to bet winning aside, given the opportunity to have Oregon options or the staunch traditionalist, a majority of today’s players would choose options. In your closet do you have a limited wardrobe in your everyday wear? Maybe toast does, he has his particular set of life uniforms. Most people like options. I don’t understand why uniforms are an exception to that rule.
Miami is also the place where fashion, neon, art deco, modern and beach wear clash in perfect calamity. There is not a fashion statement here in Miami that is accentuated by basic. It is often times brash, bold and sometimes glaringly absent. Take a trip down south beach and you’ll understand the last statement.
So what is your pick? “Storm” or “Ice”? It almost sounds like an upcoming season of Game of Thrones. Are you a white walker or do you ride a top dragons? In closing, Miami typically lost when these uniforms saw the light of day. Is that why some alternative uniform adversaries are so pissed off when this topic comes up? Where do you stand?
