It's hard to say whether it was a calculated move or an innocent delay, but when news hit that the Kansas University football program would unveil some type of "new gear" around noon today, speculation from Jayhawk fans scored off the charts.

Unfortunately, so did the waiting.

Instead of releasing the new look, which is highlighted by the presence of a variety of Jayhawks on different colored helmets, around noon, it did not actually come out until just before 4 p.m.

And it did in the form of a vine Twitter video via KU coach Charlie Weis' Twitter account.

Here's a quick look at that video, which clearly shows that the Jayhawks now have five potential uniform styles. All of the uniforms used in the video were from last season's closet, but a KU official said the school planned to update the uniforms before the 2013 season begins.

Here's a look at the styles on display Monday:

• The black ones they wore last year vs. Iowa State

• The powder blue ones they wore a couple of years ago against Texas Tech

• Standard white, with white helmets

• KU blue with blue helmets

• KU blue with red helmets
