As I think I've pointed out before, Vermont's uniforms could have been Oregon before Oregon was hip, considering some of the uniforms the Catamounts trotted out before their untimely demise in 1974. Check out these screaming yellow zonkers UVM wore until World War II put the program in mothballs for three years. Judging by the photos, it appears not all the yellow parts matched properly, which would probably cause a riot on the message boards if that happened today.

Also note the small white outline around the numbers; I don't believe too many teams did two-tone numbers then.
By Vermont standards, this team wasn't too bad, going 4-4, 2-6 and 4-3.
