5&1 by Jimmer Vilk
Welcome to the Five and One for 2022!
After more than a decade of hiatus, Jim Vilk (the original “5&1” decider) is back! And he’s back for 2022.
The concept of 5&1 is simple: Jim will choose five good matches (no longer necessarily the top five… he will have categories that change from week to week) and one bad match.
You can agree and you can disagree – these are, after all, just opinions and everyone has one. Feel free to tell him what you think in the comments section.
If you have a game that you think is worth considering for 5&1, please post it in the comments below or tweet Mr. Vilk @JVfromOhio.
Here are today’s 5&1s:
On my first shift in college yesterday, I came across this tweet from Rachel Lenzi, who covered Buffalo during their game against Bowling Green:
The blue Bulls numbers on the gray jerseys were indeed hard to see, which caused me to react.
Luckily for Buffalo, Bowling Green looked good and they were spared the &1 ignominy. But for the Bulls and every other school with hard-to-read numbers (including you, BC…well-meaning as they are, those bandana numbers need to go), I’ll say it again: You can be as stylish as you want. , but don’t sacrifice function for fashion. As Terry says, Contrast Matters! Man, I really need my five good things after all this…
5. The “red alert (pants)!” » Match:
I’m a sucker for red road pants, and I’m a sucker when these schools stick to their basics.
4. The “Script-tastic” match:
If the Tigers script was black instead of white, this game would have been #1.
3. The classic match:
In fact, I like a handful of all-white plains, including these.
2. The “What could be better than teal pants?” Match:
The answer goes with teal helmets.
1. Simply the best:
And the special color palette too!
Sin City was a fitting place for these abominations.
See you next week… and I hope I can easily see your team numbers!
