    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???

    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.

    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.

    No, we're not.

    We, well at least I, actually want some creativity brought into this.

    Slapping black on our uni is an easy out. Using some black is perfectly fine.

    A black helmet with a red N isn't even close to being creative, attention getting, modern, hip, cool or anything else that makes this a worthy endeavor.

    My concern is that they'll rely too heavily on the black to try to be different, but will end up looking like a cheap imitation of TT or Georgia.

    There are conflicting "insider" reports based on another board. One said this same info, another said that black helmets were rejected (along with chrome helmets) along with a bunch of other proposed designs. Nobody needs to get their panties in a wad or too excited just yet...

    Changing the uniform:

    -It wont help you to win a game.
    -It won't cause you to loose a game either.

    -Programs with rich history don't have to change use alternate uniforms to gain the attention of top recruits
    -How many of those programs have a "talent gap" to deal with in their back yard that's comparable to NU's.

    -Programs like Bama, tOSU, OU, etc....have won games without making major changes to their uniforms.
    -Those programs didn't win because the DIDN'T change their uniform either.

    -I don't want to look like Texas Tech, Georgia, etc.....
    -(Dumbest argument in my opinion) When your school colors are red and white or some variation of the two, your uniform will look like some other programs....so what (we currently look like Wisconsin, Indiana, Louisville, Rutgers, Miami (Ohio), Stanford, Utah, Cornell, & OU.....as all have worn uni's that look similar or exactly like NU)








    The point is, this is going to do nothing to harm the tradition of Nebraska football. That tradition is carried by the support of the fans through the highs and the lows, no matter if you agree with the direction or disagree with staff hires. The players are on board, the coach is on board, the A.D. is on board, the fans should follow suit, and it will only provide more revenue for the program as well as add a little hype around a game played on Saturday which always helps with the recruits whom are looking in our direction.

    This. I think whatever they come up with, it will generate more excitment and exposure for our program and that is impossible to be bad. Personally, I am excited about trying something like this for one game. GO BIG RED!!!

    I vote for FUN!!!

    A poll would be interesting: how many Fun Fans are out there vs. Traditional (boring) Fans.
    I don't create polls though, cuz I always mess them up.
