With the unveiling of their new uniforms in 2019, the Mountaineers now have 48 possible uniform combinations. Last season, they wore a different combination in every game. This season, they have only unveiled one new uniform combination, meaning they still have 35 possible combinations to shake it up with.
Here are five uniform combinations we think could potentially be the best of the remaining combinations:
- Blue Helmets, Gray Jerseys, Blue Pants:
This combination was actually modelled by Rasheed Marshall at the 2019 spring game. I am personally not the biggest fan of the gray uniforms, but this combo has a “sleek” look to it. The gray goes with the blue very well, and it is honestly easier on the eyes than the all gray. It would also look very unique under the lights in Morgantown.
- White Helmets, Gray Jerseys, White Pants:
This also has the potential to be a very unique uniform combination. White and gray are the two colors that seem to go with everything, so why not put them together? These uniforms would probably look best in either a 3:30 or night kickoff. The noon sun would make the white a little too bright, making the gray jersey appear slightly awkward.
- Blue Helmets, Gold Jerseys, White Pants:
This combination has been worn before, but not since 2011. The new cleaner look of the Mountaineers’ uniforms may actually make this combination go together better than it has before. This combination would also serve as a nice callback to the 2007-2012 set since it was never worn with the 2013-2018 uniforms.
- Gold Helmets, Gold Jerseys, White Pants:
Though it may seem like an odd combination, once you picture it, it doesn’t seem that bad. The gold and the white would blend together well, and wouldn’t be the eye sore as expected. However, this is not a uniform I would want WVU to wear very often. Maybe once every two seasons or so, just to try it out.
- Blue Helmets, Gray Jerseys, Gold Pants:
I was skeptical of including the gray with anything gold, but this uniform may actually look fantastic. The gray jerseys have just enough gold on them to where it wouldn’t make it a totally odd look. As with combinations mentioned earlier, this would be a set that would look better in a later kickoff. Again, the sun would just shine too brightly on certain parts of the uniform, making it somewhat of a cringeworthy look.
