New Uniform Week rolled on Friday, as Washington became the latest team to show off its new duds for the upcoming season. You may remember a couple weeks ago that Washington coach Chris Petersen pulled an April Fool's Day prank on his team involving new uniforms that weren't the real deal.
Well, these are the real deal, and they're pretty nice.

The only real complaint I have about any of these uniforms would be the hokey names given to the combinations. Do you really need to call them "Seattle Stealth" or "Northwest Frost?" Do "black" and "white" not tell you everything you already need to know?
What's not as evident in any of those photos is the helmet, but lucky for you we've got a nice shot of the white one (courtesy of Washington Athletics) -- I'm sorry I meant Northwest Frost Brain Buster -- for you.
Nice job, Washington.
