    Default Nike 'Total Combat' uniforms will not be worn by Steelers; rumors false

    Nike 'Total Combat' uniforms will not be worn by Steelers; rumors false
    November 20th, 2010 7:50 pm ET.

    The internet was a virtual beehive with rumors Friday that Nike, the company that created the 'Total Combat' uniforms for several NCAA college football teams, would also be making new NFL uniforms available in 2012. An article about the college uniforms was featured in ESPN Magazine on October 4, 2010 (pgs. 66-67; article by Luke Cyphers). Ten Nike-sponsored college teams will wear the 'Pro Combat' game uniforms. TCU, Virginia Tech and Boise State opened their new seasons this fall with the new uniform design. On September 4, TCU debuted the 'With Ice in Their Veins' uniform. On September 6, Boise State displayed the 'Untamed.Unapologetic' unis against Virginia Tech's 'Black to the Future' jerseys.

    Other reported uniform names and changes reported by ESPN Magazine to debut were:

    •Florida: 'Threatened by no One' (10-30-2010)
    •Alabama: 'The Next Wave' (11-13-2010)
    •Miami (FL): 'The Birthplace of Speed' (11-20-2010)
    •Pitt: 'Forged for the Gridiron/Coal Mines to Goal Lines' (11-26-2010)

    •Ohio State: 'Battle Ready' (11-27-2010)
    •Oregon State: 'From Giant Killers to Giants' (12-4-2010)

    The Pittsburgh Tribune-Review confirmed that the Pitt Panthers will wear the 'Total Combat' jerseys against West Virginia when they meet on November 26, at Heinz Field, for the 103rd 'Backyard Brawl' game. Pitt's uniforms will feature ties to the steel industry, while West Virginia's gear will pay respect to the deadly Uppoer Big Branch mine explosion which took several lives this past April.

    Someone with a sense of humor decided to leak information that the NFL would soon be wearing new Nike-sponsored 'Total Combat' gear as well. Taking the original mock graphics made by an independent artist, not Nike, Adobe Photoshop came into play, and fashionistas around the globe started tweeting and chatting about the new looks. Depending on the style that the prankster made for a given team, fans were either pleased with the new looks or outright outraged.

    [HIGH-LIGHT]The NFL has not signed off on any new uniform designs with Nike, and there has not been discussion on doing so.

    The uniform 'designed' for the Pittsburgh Steelers took away all of the greatness of the team's history. With the yellow appearing more like yellow-green, sleeves of white with yellow, red and blue horizontal stripes, the uniforms were ugly. The Steelers would have to put input into any change of uniform, and they would not approve the fake design without fans burning them in effigy. [/HIGH-LIGHT]
    The real Nike 'Total Combat' jerseys (for the NCAA) are interesting, and have been a hit with fans, but are mainly a promotional tool to gain revenue for athletic departments when fans purchase the alternative design. NFL teams do not rely as heavily on team-related fan gear.

    Well they pretty much said that is what it was from the beginning. React first then read! I looked everywhere for the original art work they are using and can't find it. Wanted to try my own.

    Yeah I googled for a while last night until I decided I didn't want to put any more time into it.
