Razorbacks are becoming Razorshoulders

Remember when Arkansas' football uniforms looked classic and traditional? They still do -- only now they look like traditional San Diego Chargers' uniforms. Sort of.

That's the takeaway from Wednesday's Razorbacks uniform unveiling, where we learned that the Hogs will be wearing lightning bolts on their shoulders. Or razor wire. Or sawteeth. Or something. Like so many other college teams these days, they're also adding a second helmet and a dark gray uni option. (You can see more photos from the unveiling here.)

The upper chest seems a little busy, what with the "Arkansas" wordmark, the SEC logo, the Razorbacks logo and the Nike swoosh. Still, at least they've gotten rid of those miserable white pit stains from the old uniform, so maybe it's an even tradeoff. What do you think?
