People like to imagine what new Alabama uniforms might look like, but the Crimson Tide have stuck with their simple design for a long time.
Could that change at some point under Nick Saban? And at least right now, he is comfortable with the Crimson Tide’s look, according to the Tuscaloosa News’ Cecil Hurt.
Saban on uniforms: "That's our brand…Maybe some people in the new generation would like to see changes but I'm not quite ready for that."

Saban has previously said he doesn’t think “anybody has a right to mess with” the Crimson Tide’s uniform design. Alabama has a rich history, after all, and a drastic brand change might not sit well with boosters or many parts of the fan base.
But as more and more college football teams update and revamp their uniforms, younger fans and recruits have said that Alabama seems boring by comparison.

For now, the Crimson Tide keeps winning and keeps bringing in the best recruiting classes in the country. As long as that trend continues, don’t expect Saban to change his mind on this issue.
