No, Miami hasn't been quite Florida State's equal on the field in the Jimbo Fisher era. But when it comes to uniforms, who's to say the Seminoles ought to have all the fun?

The verdict: a tentative thumbs-up. The shoulder detail is great; the helmet (with its reflective touch on the U) is great; the number font immediately reads "Miami."
The only problem: it's hard to really pull off a monocolor football uniform. The all-white look should be fine, but put an entire team's worth of all-orange or all-green uniforms on the field, and the effect is overwhelming. Switch up the orange or green jersey with the white pants, though, or the white jersey with the green or orange pants? Solid South Beach gold.
