  • Given today's announcement from Nicki, I think the color ship has, sadly, sailed. Put me down as a fan of the older darker maroon...

    • Ditto. I liked the deep maroon the best. Why all this change in our colors, insignias, logos? Is change always good....or warrented? I'm for the traditional, old school look. As to the stripes: this seems to be the go-to thing that teams do. I suppose it's to elevate us to a "pro looking" team? Not happy about it. If you junk up the look of our jerseys/uniforms you lose the impact,. I can live with the "early" block "C" but that should be enuf... (except for some sleeve decoration).Just MHO.

      • Correct me if I’m wrong, but...

        I don’t think Colgate’s color palette has changed.

        The old one was...

        Colgate Maroon:
        PMS 202 C
        PMS 7427 U
        RGB 130 / 16 / 25
        HEX 821019
        CMYK 30 / 95 / 75 / 30

        The new one, as listed on this week’s announcement of a new identity (with shield, 13 stripes, etc.) is identical. Also included are the specs for Night Black and Ice White.

        So, if the jerseys look more reddish, it truly is the apparel-maker not matching the past color palette. Right?

        • Do you really think any of us know what those numbers and letters equate to, lol ? I can't believe U/A doesn't have the ability to keep the centuries old maroon color intact, Andy Kerr must be very disappointed. Why does everything have to change, I hate it.
          It all starts with the goaltending.

          • I don't know how long Pantone 202C has been in the Colgate color palette, but it is not the Maroon color Colgate has always used. 202C is more of a Crimson or burgundy shade. Bring back Maroon... Colgate has always been known as "The Maroon".

            • Looks like most leagues are progressing to some type of re-opening, with the exception of the ECAC...my fear is that the esteemed Ivy League will dictate to the six other members of the league and we will dutifully follow...frankly, I'd like to see the ECAC say to the Ivies: "We're playing hockey this year and, if necessary, will proceed with six teams playing each other four times (i.e., 20 league games). If you want your kids to play, great. If not, we're moving on..."

              • That would be totally acceptable to me ! Start the games. Hard to believe but fall semester's over in about a month, kids go home already.

                • Patriot League announced no out of conference games for basketball and Colgate has informed hockey players that while they are not in the Patriot League, they generally follow those decisions. But they are going to talk to the ECAC. However, since ECAC is just a one sport league, the multisport conference Patriot League carries more weight. So unlikely that there are any OOC games before league play.
