    "Futuristic" uniforms option

    a friend of mine (S.E.) said he heard that our uni's were probably going to be

    Black helmet
    Red N
    Black/Red Unis
    No white whatsoever


    I say FANTASTIC....what say you?

    He is usually spot on with these types of tidbits

    I'm OK with it. Regardless of uni they are still the HUSKERS.

    I don't like it at all, I think we'll end up looking like freaking Texas Tech. I don't like Texas Tech, I love Nebraska. Play with the uniforms, maybe incorporate some black as a neutral, but stick to the school colors and be more creative with design than color.

    Who cares if we look like Texas Tech for one game, especially if it gets players, recruits, and the younger fanbase excited? I mean we look like Wisconsin every other game.

    No. They look like us.

    Sounds like a game to listen to on the radio and leave my seats empty.

    Sad

    Both Wisconsin and TT aspired to be like us at one point.

    Maybe we should try some purple since K-State also wanted to be like us.

    Why not the green and orange of Miami? Or the gold and maroon of FSU?

    Or maybe those godawful colors VaTech uses. I can't even name them.

    Here's a creative idea: include every color of every former loser team that used Nebraska as the gold standard of achievement.

    I'm looking forward to the change; it's one game everyone. It will generate buzz and additional revenue.

    No kidding. It seems like there is more to worry about in life than the color and design of our college football team, especially when it is for 1 game. How ridiculous.

    I say What is Futuristic about what you just described?
    Same old same old and it will suck with the players, everyone will hate it and the Admin will say "well we tried it and no one liked it" so we won't go there again!
    I just hope your guy got his tidbit wrong this time, this sounds like something they could designed in the Home Economics department, not the Home of a major sports design company.

    Funny, I thought the same thing about your post....and all your other silly posts about this topic

    I think its hilarious that a "fan" could be so bitter about something so petty that they would be willing to pout and stay home than go and support the decision that obviously the majority of the team (you know, the guys actually wearing the uniforms!) and football administration support, including that one guy that walks on water and can do no wrong to some around here....


    Sad indeed

    The people who bitch about the black uniforms are the same people who quietly and politely knit quilts in Memorial Stadium during games.

    If black uniforms get the players fired up, they'll get the fans fired up. And Lord knows that we could use some more fired up fans on game day. Half the time, our house sounds like a tomb because the blue hairs are too busy daydreaming about Dana X. Bible and the Ole Rattlesnake Boys of Nineteen-Dickety-Two.

    I'm for it. I hope the design is nice. Many of the players are expressing they would love to play in black uniforms. Some one mentioned already, if it gets the players fired up, it will get the fans fired up.

    If or when black uniforms are announce, I shall make sure I am at this game personally just so I can sit next to some "traditionalist" with a bitter beer face on. My support of the team goes beyond a uniform worn for one game.

    I'm going out on a limb here, but if this is really the "special" color scheme, I think they'll be brought out for the Wisconsin game!

    Thoughts???

    Winning would accomplish the same goal.

    Then why make a big deal about changing even if it is for only 1 game.



    I am very much a traditionalist and won't apologize for it. I also have had people leave the game because they say they don't like to listen to me yell. I don't sit on my hands, I don't knit and I am not bitter I am voicing an opinion. I will always support the huskers (did even when cally was here) but it doesn't mean I have to like what "Everyone" else says is a good idea.
