AUBURN’S BCS TITLE GAME FOOTWEAR

Posted on January 6th, by HeatherZeller in A GLAM SLAM U, BLOG. No Comments

The Auburn Tigers and Oregon Ducks will meet on January 10th in the BCS title game. In preparation for the big event, both teams have added a little flair to their on-field fashions. Oregon, a team notorious for their flashy football attire, released special BCS title game uniforms last month. And the result was disappointing to many fans. Aside from the blinding neon socks, the team’s iconic yellow and green hues were missing from the all-white unis.

The Oregon letdown has allowed Auburn to take the lead in the best-dressed battle. Though their uniforms won’t change (the team will wear their regular home uniforms) their footwear and gloves will help the Tigers rack up some style points. Earlier this month A Glam Slam showed you the Under Armour shoes that Auburn QB Cam Newton wore during the SEC championship game, a preview of the footwear fans … Read More »

COLLEGE FOOTBALL UNIS RETURN TO COMBAT

Posted on September 1st, by admin in A GLAM SLAM U. No Comments

What’s a new college football season without new uniforms? Many schools will hit the field with familiar fashions while others have updated their look. This morning Nike unveiled the Pro Combat Uniforms for the 2010-2011 season. The uniquely designed uniforms will be worn by ten of the top college football programs for at least one game this year.

Dubbed the “Nike Pro Combat System of Dress,” the unis are engineered to provide superior protection and durability, while utilizing advanced fabrics and tooling that reduce weight. In addition to these performance benefits, this year Nike also worked closely with each university to bring relevant elements of the school’s heritage into the overall design. The collaborations resulted in uniforms that infuse the past and the future, hence the Nike tag: “Born of Tradition. Built for Speed.” To learn more … Read More »

BEST-DRESSED COACHES IN COLLEGE HOOPS

Posted on May 3rd, by admin in A GLAM SLAM U. No Comments

Who says brackets are only meant for games? CollegeInsider.com has completed their annual contest to determine the “best-dressed coach in America.” The 65-slot bracket seeded coaches and divided them by region, to determine the NCAA basketball head coach and assistant coachwith the greatest sense of style.

For the third time, Drexel’s Bruiser Flint has been voted college basketball’s best-dressed head coach. Though he was the number 2 seed in his region, Flint defeated his opponents in the “Sensational 16,” “Elegant 8,” and “Fashionable Four” before edging out Campbell’s Robbie Laing in the finals. And while there’s no doubt that Flint is a man of style when he hits the court, fans are still questioning how Villanova’s Jay Wright and his Gucci suits were ousted in the round of 16. But then again, what’s a bracket without a few upsets?

So what make Flint the … Read More »

A GLAM SLAM’S JERSEY MADNESS

Posted on March 24th, by HeatherZeller in A GLAM SLAM U, BLOG. 2 comments

“March Madness” has truly lived up to it’s name, based on the first two rounds of tournament play. There were gimme games that turned into major upsets, unforgettable buzzer-beaters and memorable overtime wins. #1 seeded Kansas lost to #9 seeded Northern Iowa, Notre Dame and Georgetown were ousted in Round 1 and Michigan State defeated Maryland with a shot at the buzzer.

And based on the results thus far, there’s a 99 percent chance that your bracket is a total mess. We’ve only completed Round 2 and NCAA fans have resorted to ripping, shredding and burning their brackets, as they are forced to pay up on lost bets.

Now that we’ve reached the Sweet 16, A Glam Slam has developed a new bracket, one that’s not based on the gametime winners and losers. Since the road to the Final Four is … Read More »

When you play college basketball you are representing your school. And when you watch college basketball you are also representing your school. College students are some of the most die-hard fans out there, who attend games dripping in maize and blue, or red and white, or whatever their school colors may be.

Back in the 1980’s NIke had introduced the Nike Dunks “Be True to Your School” colorways collection of shoes, which celebrated some of the most storied programs in college bball, including Michigan, UNLV and Kentucky among others. The collection offered those die-hard fans another way to showcase their team support.
