Willie Taggart understands that while good looking uniforms won’t help with wins and losses, it’s still good to have a little style on the football field.
Even during Taggart’s one-year stint at the helm of Oregon, the team made headlines for its unique uniform combinations. While Taggart cautioned fans gathered at an event in Orlando, Fla., on Thursday night to not expect quite the same now that he is the head coach at Florida State, he did provide a hint on what to expect at some point during the season.
“We won’t have as many uniforms as Oregon. Oregon is the only team that can get away with that,” Taggart said, as reported by the Orlando Sentinel’s Safid Deen. “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.”
Florida State’s uniforms never really went to the extreme under the tenure of Jimbo Fisher. They certainly didn’t under Bobby Bowden, about as old school a coach as there was. Taggart did utilize all-garnet and all-gold uniforms during the spring game a few weeks ago.
As far as beyond that? Considering Taggart’s comments on Thursday, we’ll have to wait and see.
