The Missouri Tigers have been hyping their April 14 uniform makeover reveal for weeks now, with Gary Pinkel happily talking about it seemingly every few days and teaser videos coming out left and right. Former players like Sean Weatherspoon and Jeremy Maclin have raved about the new get-ups, which will consolidate Mizzou's various golds into a single tone, among other changes.
From UniWatch.com's Paul Lukas, a couple new tidbits:
Xclsive info on new Mizzou football uniforms (to be unveiled Saturday): Gray added to color scheme, tiger head replaces M on helmet.— Paul Lukas (@UniWatch) April 12, 2012
The tiger switcheroo has been rumored for a while now, with plenty of likely fake images floating around. Mizzou itself has said it's placing more emphasis on the tiger, as too many people confuse the block M with Michigan's.
One teased image of the new basketball uniform includes gray tiger stripes on a black field. Help us all if there's a SEC team that's going to play football in tiger stripes, though it would help distinguish Mizzou from the many other Tigers the conference has to offer.
