Ranking the football uniforms: No. 9

The 2011 Bedlam all whites were good enough to bust into my top nine.

Ah finally we get to the (first version of the) all white uniforms for Oklahoma State. I’ve long touted the Texas all whites and these are similar for me — so clean, so sharp looking.

A closer look:

Uniform No. 9: White-White-White
Worn: at OU in 2012 and at Mizzou in 2011
Result(s): 1-1 (beat Mizzou 45-24, lost to OU 51-48)

I can’t help myself here, the all whites are too much for me. There are better combos (I’m a tri-colored homer) but this one and the Cotton Bowl one from last season are just a tremendous look.

I’m not going to argue with you if you put the all blacks above this one but I prefer these, especially when Josh Steart goes long socks and spats like so:

The only thing you could improve on these is the cue ball-ish helmet. Make it matte white (or some variation thereof and I could even bump these up a few spots).

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: This ranking is a stunner. You are the No. 1 proponent of the All Whites.

For me, the all whites are like the TV show “The Big Bang Theory”: I know they are very popular, I know they are highly acclaimed but I just never got into them.

I don’t hate them, I don’t love them…I’m just apathetic.

I find them to be too plain, like practice uniforms. Plus, I feel like Texas has patented the Storm Trooper look. Much like Clemson has patented the All Orange look. I just don’t think of OSU when I see this combo.

2012 Bedlam was the only time Justin Gilbert has been out-uniformed. You mentioned Stewart, Randle also pulled off the socks:

I know the All Whites are very popular, so I’m probably in the minority.
