Bryant Bulldogs (2004-06)

Here's another team I haven't done much with -- the Bryant Bulldogs, the baby of this project, having been around only since 1999 and in D-I since 2009.

This is what Bryant wore when it was still a member of the Division II Northeast-10 Conference, which I don't believe has ever had 10 football-playing members, but that's for another time. The '06 team went 8-3, shared the NE-10 title and reached the NCAA D-II tournament. The '07 team repeated the feat, this time claiming the NE-10 title outright.

Looking at pictures from this time period really strikes me as to how much football uniforms have changed over the last decade -- this style predates "revolution" helmets, over-the-top fonts and jerseys and pants that look as if they were spray-painted on the athletes. Funny, 2006 seems as if it were three weeks ago ... Here's the 2014 uniform for comparison.

The patch on the sleeve is the Northeast-10 logo, rendered in Bryant black-and-gold.
