The Florida State football program has consistently worn traditional uniforms throughout the years, but new head coach Willie Taggart appears ready to spice things up for the Seminoles moving forward. Taggart came to Florida State from Oregon, so he knows a thing or two about innovative uniforms and combinations.
But while Taggart has that knowledge from his time leading the Ducks, don’t expect him to go too crazy with the uniform combos for Florida State in 2018.
Instead, the head coach says that the team will simply by “swagged out a little bit” when they take the field.
“We won’t have as many uniforms as Oregon. Oregon is the only team that can get away with that,” Taggart said, via Safid Deen of the Orlando Sentinel. “But we will have multiple uniforms and do some different things and stay true to who we are. We’re going to be swagged out a little bit.”
What does that mean exactly? No one seems to know, but it could bring a fresh look to the Seminoles moving forward, though a drastic change is not expected.
The most likely outcome for Florida State is to bust out some unique uniform combinations that have not previously been seen in Tallahassee, and perhaps the return of the black jerseys and helmets. Anything is possible.
During the Florida State spring game, Taggart went with all-garnet and all-gold uniforms for the two squads.
The Seminoles kickoff their 2018 campaign on Monday, Sept. 3 against the Virginia Tech Hokies.
