    The 09 Pro Combat fauxback we wore when we got our asses kicked in Lubbock? Would look weird with our normal helmet and trousers. That's what it looks like, anyway.

As long as they look as good on the field as they do in the picture.
    I bought a new OU polo yesterday, and the lady at the store showed me an away jersey with gold outline around the numbers. There was also a gold patch on the right breast area. She said its the jersey the team will wear in the RRR. I thought she was full of shit because she was kinda weird. Maybe not.

    No photo since as I stated it was on the persons phone not mine. If I would have gotten it I would have posted it. If the jersies aren't real then he trolled the shit out of me. Even the respective player was trolling me.

    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.

    Really do need to bring these back sometime.

    Gradient numbers suck, though.

    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.

    There's a reason cream has never been used in football.

    It doesn't look good.

    Hockey? Yes
    Baseball? Absolutely
    Football? lolno

    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.

    Yes, because other sports use different fabrics for their uniforms, and the fabrics do make a difference.

    well we can only make unfounded re-alignment speculation so long before it gets repetitive, so we come here to re-hash arguments on a different topic.

    So the gold trim is another way for Nike to make a few more bucks. Now it makes perfect sense.

    So crimson numbers/lettering with gold outline? Sounds like Florida State to me. Are pants stripes going to be changed in some way?

    Black out tribute

    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 like it. Is the gold for something special or just a Nike gimmick?

    Why couldn't you just say that, then? You come on here with the "I know something you don't know" attitude but you don't say anything concrete. You just drop a bunch of hints. If you couldn't show a picture, you could've just said what Lake Bum said; gold around the numbers and a gold patch. How difficult is that?

    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.

  43. #743
    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.

    If so, it has the potential to be absolutely disgusting. Plus their jerseys aren't actually burnt orange, just a normal orange

    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.
