    I’m against the pink everything during this month. I know it’s a for a good cause and all, but I feel like more effort is being put into wearing pink, then to contribute $$$$ to the cause. Pink numbers doesn’t save anyone, I’m not even sure that someone saw them and said, ‘hmmm why are they wearing pink?’ This country has done a good job of making people raising awarness, now it’s time to start contributing, instead of putting $$$ in adidas’ pocket and them sending the ‘proceeds’ to the fund. Use the red ones and send 100% of what they spent on the pink towels and are bands and all to the fund.

    Having said that, I loved the unis except for the pink. IF they have to incorporate pink then they shouldn’t incorporate red. They don’t look good together. The helments were AWESOME. I’m interested to see how they match with the red tops, I think Red on Red on Red, would be a nice look against the Hells in November.

    Anybody that knows me knows how much I love the color red. I wear it as often as I can. I always wear red to State games too, even if it means freezing my ass off because I don’t have a thick enough red jacket. Having said all that, I don’t like the red on red unis so I really don’t like the idea of red on red on red. I think our sharpest uni, and my personal favorite, is the red jersey with the white pants. But, if Vegas took wagers on uni combos I would bet the house that we wear red on red on red against the Heels.

    As for the black with pink jersey tops, if we don’t auction those off and send all the proceeds to the Kay Yow/WBCA Cancer Fund then we should be ashamed of ourselves.

    ^ now I can get down with that. However…I still see State eating a lot of the cost, because I doubt they’ll sell all of them, and fall short of the cost of doing this, and the Cancer Fund will suffer, because we could’ve made just one big contribution

    Red Helmets the best new addition – can see what you are saying about the need for the black outline. Would like to see red jersey, black pants, red helmet combo. Like the pant stripes.

    I guess I should have clarified that Adidas paid for these entire unis (red helmet, black jersey, & black pants) as their response to the Nike Pro Combat unis that schools like Georgia, Boise State, Virginia Tech, Florida, etc. have worn. We had free reign on the design and Saturday’s design is what we chose. The throwback unis in the epic Michigan/Notre Dame night game were the designs that those 2 schools chose with this same offer from Adidas.

    Since Adidas paid for these, we would not lose any money on then and could donate all proceeds to the Kay Yow/WBCA Cancer Fund. If we had a decent marketing department you could figure out ways to sell them (raffles, online auctions, etc.) in order to make enough money for a sizable contribution. This all appears moot now, though, as the latest thing I’ve heard is they plan to keep these jerseys to use in the Kay Yow Spring Game.
