San Francisco 49ers Unveil New Alternate Black Uniforms for 2015

It’s hard to beat the traditional scarlet and gold uniforms that the San Francisco 49ers have each season.

 

But there’s a new look coming to the team in 2015. The 49ers unveiled a new black alternate jersey on the first day of the 2015 NFL Draft. The team also unveiled matching pants to give San Francisco all black uniforms.

 

This isn’t an awful look, but why mess with San Francisco’s traditional uniforms?

After two drafts with no running back taken in the first round, Todd Gurley and Melvin Gordon both went in the first 15 picks of the 2015 NFL Draft.

With both the top two picks, Jameis Winston and Marcus Mariota, watching the NFL Draft from home, viewers had to wait for a memorable interaction between a draftee and commissioner Roger Goodell.

The Gators lost a top-five coach but don't have a top-five program
Is Florida's Basketball Program Built to Carry the Billy Donovan Legacy?

College basketball coaching changes are in a weird place in 2016.

 

Gregg Marshall passed on Alabama to stay at Wichita State. He’ll make more than $3 million to coach the Shockers, he’ll have the institutional support of any major conference team, and he’ll enjoy near-ironclad job security.

 

Shaka Smart didn’t go to UCLA two years ago; he went to Texas this season. And who knows what kind of college job would have pulled Brad Stevens from Butler if the Boston Celtics never took a chance on the Bulldogs coach.

Florida athletic director Jeremy Foley is no stranger to conducting a job search in order to replace a championship coach.

 

He’s done it with Steve Spurrier and Urban Meyer on the football side. And thanks to Billy Donovan’s brief dalliance with the Orlando Magic in 2007, he started the process to replace Donovan once before. Ironically, the likely replacement in ’07 was then-VCU coach Anthony Grant, who returned to the staff as an assistant this season.

It’s no secret Ohio State’s quarterback battle is the most intriguing storyline in college football this year. Cardale Jones, Braxton Miller and J.T. Barrett will compete this fall to take the first snap against Virginia Tech, and the winner of the competition – assuming they start the full year – should be a Heisman candidate.
