I bumped these down quite a bit after irrationally putting them in the top 10 last year. It was an emotional decision based in…I’m not sure what..but I’ve amended it.

A closer look at this combo:

Uniform No. 14: White-White-Gray
Worn: at Arizona in 2012
Result(s): 0-1 (lost 59-38 at Arizona)

I do still love these more than most as they encompass my second-favorite permutation (helmet and jersey match with different pants) and all colors I love. Another one I’d like to see would be White-White-Orange, that would be absolutely tremendous.

Also, can we take a moment of silence for the gray sleeves on Justin Gilbert in the photo above? That’s a next level uniform move and not something many would attempt, much less pull off. That’s why you win uniform Heismans.

All in all this is a great combo, as are the 13 ahead of it.

I asked Carson Cunningham — a uniform connoisseur himself — to start weighing in on these rankings so you would get a different side of the coin. Here’s his take:

Carson: We all have combos we love more than we should and this is your kryptonite combo. Mine has yet to be revealed, but I do love G-O-G more than most.

The biggest drawback of this uni is the gray works best as an accent. Yet, in this combo it is the focal point. It’s the only thing keeping this from being the same road ensemble we’ve seen for decades. Gilbert (as always) did his best to liven up the combo with those immaculate sleeves, but there’s no saving the end, bland product.

Speaking of Gilbert, who are you picking as his Uni Heisman heir apparent?[1. I’m picking Kevin Peterson, with zero doubts.] Ashton Lampkin is No. 1 on my watch list. His Iverson-esque sleeve is bold, yet distinctive.
