Wonder what the gold is commemorating.
Aren't we the visitors on Saturday? I guess it will be white and not red tops?
I wouldn't say I'm a traditionalist because I love what Oregon, Baylor, Arizona St., etc. are all doing with their unis, but I don't think that would fit our program's identity, but I can handle gold if we're adding a new color. Still want white helmets asap tho.
Also I think we could pull off black if done correctly. Maybe gradient numbering that fades from white to red? That way we don't look like Tech.
I just think replacing the white in our uniforms with cream would give us a more distinctive brand. Don't have to make any radical changes to the uniform.
I'd rock a crimson hoodie with cream Oklahoma lettering. It's the perfect time in OUs history to make a change like that.
Keep the colors, just add a white helmet and red pants, and for the love of God, DO NOT WEAR CRIMSON/CRIMSON/CRIMSON.
We've never tried it with modern uniforms. How would you know?
It just seems silly to say that a color works in another sport...are you serious? A color combination is going to work or not work regardless of what sport it's being utilized in. The only difference is it's been used in other sports and worked, it's never been tried in football. Much more painful color combinations have been utilized at other schools for alts, and we seem to be the only major school not doing a yearly alternate uniform, why not give it a shot. They are our official colors after all.
There are like five schools that use crimson and white as a color scheme, it can't hurt to try and separate from that crowd.
i'll be disappointed if we ever have black or gray uni's. I hate them. Not against alternates, in fact i want a fauxback. just not tire tread or neb type crap.
It's good to see that after all this time this thread is as fresh as ever.
Fuel for the gold fire...and it appears our friends to the south will be in on it as well:
would buy. Free is my favorite shoe to run in
interesting on the gold...
So the gold trim is another way for Nike to make a few more bucks. Now it makes perfect sense.
I think the gold is gonna be sweet
So crimson numbers/lettering with gold outline? Sounds like Florida State to me. Are pants stripes going to be changed in some way?
I would love to see us do a "blacked out" uni for just one game. Possibly some kind of tribute (like when Bob Barry passed or Coach Switzer hopefully a long time from now). Maybe some initials on the lapel or sticker on the back of the helmet.
Just do it one time though, so that whenever you see a picture of it from now until forever you know what game it was for and why.
Other than that, I don't mind flecks in the crimson or whatever, just don't turn us into Maryland/Oregon please.
i do too. not what i REALLY wanted. but i like it.
eh.... i might pick up the shoes though!
I like it. Is the gold for something special or just a Nike gimmick?
To those saying white helmets. Why would we do that against Texas? We don't want 22 white helmets running around on the field. You want your helmet and jersey color to be as different as possible from your opponent so that your QB can make quicker reads. Anything that would make your QB hesitate, even for a split second, could make the difference in a game. The only way I see it happening against Texas is if they were burnt orange helmets.
Traxx, I would not be in favor of wearing white helmets against a team that also wears white helmets.
Big Rivalry Game. Another way for Nike to make money. I am sure UT will do the same as well.
So both teams are adding gold to their normal unis?
Meh. Doesn't do much for me.
I didn't come here with anything insinuating the I know something you don't know mentality. You got it all wrong son. I was giving the heads up and was proven right when several douches were calling me out.
so Texas is mixing gold with their burnt orange?
Saw the replica jersey in the bookstore just now. Kind of a let down honestly, I was expecting much more than some gold trim.

I want all gold errthang. If we're going gold make everything gold even their skin. Example. Gold dust. I want them so gold it looks like they just climbed out of a leprechauns ass.
