No disrespect to CJ here, but I've been saying that for a week now :)
I'd be okay with this IF AND ONLY IF the names were guaranteed to disappear once the sanctions are lifted. My fear is that this would be an empty promise that would be reneged on in the same way politicians promise spending cuts down the road to offset current spending.
The only thing I want on the back of the jersey is
FUemmert (JK, kinda)
My guess is the Mauti and Zordich would want no names as well as a civil disobedience to the NCAA. JMO, I think these players want to say FU to the NCAA but have more class to not do so.
haha, I'm right there with ya

Leave the chipmunk off the helmet (or replace it with numbers) and I'm on board with that in general. Couple tweaks here and there on it to tone it down a bit, but it could be very respectable and non-flashy, yet fresh. Blue helmet as an alternative to the white is what I particularly like and I don't mind the "PENN STATE" on the chest of the jersey. Still plain enough to be classy and not gaudy.
This is my favorite so far. Only question is the helmet silver?

this team has already proved they are closer than ever, names for these few years wouldnt be the worst.. heck, even the majority of the 2013 class is sticking with us.. like the kentucky basketball players that stuck around after the program got hit hard, these kids should be remembered for their loyalty...
Here is the first change (Penn State on the strap)

Does anyone have a list of jersey numbers for the freshman?
The traditionalists are going to go nuts. Thats too flashy! lol
The stripe is missing down the middle of the helmet. Is that the stripe Gilliam is referring to?

We gotta earn our stripes or in this case stripe.

that's been on the strap for years if I recall.
so do u stop with the names once this guys graduate? or just keep the names of the players here now and never change the names again in order to honor them?
i actually like these, and have liked this since i first saw it.
Numbers on the helmet, blue stripe down the pants, names on the jersey, and some pro-combat uniforms would be sweet
PENN STATE FOREVER
Resurrecting an old topic here. I fall into the over 40 crowd but am not bothered by a uniform change whatsoever. Penn State could change their colors back to pink & black and I'm still in the stands on a Saturday. A uniform isn't why I'm a fan. At any rate, the attached article attempts to debunk the notion that the new uniform craze helps recruiting. I do agree with Adam Jacobi on this.
Are you over the age of 40? If youre not, do you fashion your opinions after those who are? If so, you probably hate the recent onslaught of alternate uniforms in college football...

I want one time, just one time with the Nike Combat Uniforms.
Auction them off after the game they played and donate proceeds to help child abuse.

Hard to argue against that... would be cool to do that for a big game.
Other than that.....

I agree, but a change is sometimes nice and this change would help others. I know the goose bumps I had when they came out of the tunnel with 42 on the helmet.
Yeah I like the idea of doing it a limited # of times.
#s on the helmets could be nice to see again
A pink and black uniform for Homecoming would be pretty cool. Tweaking the blue/white uniforms would not be the end of the world. Personally I hate the uniforms they have worn the past two years with no trim on the collar or sleeves.
The only problem I had with the trim was that it went too far down on the jersey. If they shortened it up a bit, that would be great. Those uniforms with names on the back and numbers on the one side of the helmet would be my vote.
