At one point in the second quarter last Saturday, they showed a video on the jumbotron asking various players what their favorite uniform combo was. My favorite answer was Joe Thuney saying, “Whatever we wore when we beat Carolina last year!” Amen to that brother.
The other answers were very telling. I think of the 10 or so players they showed, probably 8 of them said their favorite was “the black unis” that we debuted last year against Old Dominion. Well those black unis were back last week against Eastern Kentucky. The players looked very sharp, and after a sloppy first quarter, played very sharp in the dominating victory.
The black unis have grown on me. I particularly like the red scratch/rip marks on the shoulders. I still think the helmet design could have been better, but oh well. I have heard that there is some sort of new uni or helmet that will be making its debut later this season. I don’t know any specifics, but if I were guessing I’d say it will be some sort of hydrographics/chrome helmet. I look forward to seeing whatever it is.
