 Yeah… I said the same thing on another post which mentioned the neon unis yesterday.  I think that they are terrible and gross and I certainly wouldn’t argue with anybody who feels that way… And yet I’m alright with them.  I... uhhh, I think I kind of like them.

Sometimes even tradition needs a revamp.

Number one, win the rivalry game. And number two, win every game after that.

For me, it's not so much the neon color choice but the composition.  The color, after all, made for a very nice gameweek poster.  I wouldn't have included the 'state' or, if I had, it would've been a different font, not the simple bock.  I also would've worked with a differernt font for the numbers and used the neon--and something other than a white stripe for the helmet.  I just don't think that as it is it's coherent but more of a mash. 

Our Chic retros I liked.

The color scheme's kinda cool, the ginormous "STATE" letters, not so much.

by the way, underrated college uniform design element: the red-on-red vertical stripes on indiana's sleeves are *kisses fingertips*

Sparty has incorporated some god awful highlighter green in to some of their alternate uni's. This poster depicts Brutus snapping a highlighter in half. I suppose to symbolize a breaking of the "new" Sparty.

I didn't see it at first...now I do thanks. Got a little worried at first what was shooting in Brutus' face...phew glad it is ink.

Ah, it’s a highlighter.  Thanks.  I thought it looked like a broken ski, but I wasn’t sure why the ski was bleeding, or how that applied to MSU.

Brutus broke the highlighter MSU used to make their ridiculous neon jerseys.  That was my take anyway.  Also references the blackout.

Looks like he is holding a glow stick? Maybe a big highlighter to poke fun at their new uniforms? I'm with you, I'm a bit lost.

I think he is snapping a bright green highlighter, making fun of msu's ugly neon green unis.

I just so don't understand how a glow stick could just explode.  I've never personally seen that happen ever and I'm in my mid 40's.

Number one, win the rivalry game. And number two, win every game after that.

Some knuckleheads put them in the microwave to glow a little brighter and they don’t know that they can explode.

I will not confirm that I broke multiple chem lights to color myself green so I could dress like Oscar the Grouch for my wog talent show. Smart choices like that are why i'm wrecked now.

The darkness is also a reference to the Blackout

Snapping Horrible Green in our Awesome Blackout uniform environment.

Sparty alternate uniform colors have been atrocious at times.

Sparty broke their neon night sticks and thought it would be a good uniform idea.

Took me a second to decipher what Brutus was holding, but I'm taking it as he is breaking MSU's new neon look.

HS

Yeah, I thought it was a krypronite harness or something, since Sparty ha been ours on a few occasions.

I also love the dig on "Little Brother" MSU with the "Michig"  "an State" split. Subtle, but harsh.

Didn't Walt break up Nebras   ka  last week? Could be a recurring theme/dig. 

I'd rather be an hour early than a minute late.

HS

Yes he did, but with MSU the separation just seems to punctuate the divide between them and UMmmmm... which we know get's under Sparty's skin more than the Mean Weasels.

At first I thought it was a reference to Sparty's fluorescent green uniform color matching the glowing Predator blood.  The broken highlighter makes more sense.

HS
Buckeye BadDog's picture

That picture is more like what our Predator will look like after the game... with Sparty's "highlighter" stains all over him!  After reading the article regarding MSU O-line injury troubles, I'm thinking Lewerke may not survive the first half.

I hope Sparty isn't planning to wear those terrible uni's on Saturday.   I assume they will be in White.

That's some damn fine shade being thrown at Sparty. Good work, Walt.

My wife says that the highlighter is a yellow-like color. I am colorblind, so I can't tell the difference. Does anyone else see yellow, or is it green? It might be my monitor.

Yellow or maize are both bad. I was confused initially. Thanks for an explanation.

Who does these? they are consistently fantastic. Favorite one to date is the TCU poster from last year.

It’s definitely a highlighter. You can see that it says Sharpie on it. Sharpie is a popular highlighter brand
