The honeycomb helmet could work but the yellow stripe needs to go, and the hue of the entire helmet is yellow compared to the white jerseys. Something just doesn't seem right.
I'm a classic man.
I personally like having blue in the uniforms. I know some people like the blue and some people don't. I recently re-read Bobby Dodd's autobiography (Dodd's Luck), and it says that for the 1948 season, "Dodd ... addressed the team's uniforms. He abandoned the traditional Tech garb-drab, mustard-colored jerseys" (must have been the wrong shade of mustard), "in favor of two color-coordinated combinations: blue shirts and white pants, or white jerseys with gold pants. 'A well dressed team has more pride and self confidence' Dodd explained. 'Those uniforms are worth about a touchdown a game' ."
So when people start talking about Tech's "traditional" uniform (especially the old geezer that some people have mentioned on this site that will yell at people who wear blue on game day), I wonder which traditional uniform they are talking about.
Well, to go back to where I started, anybody got any ideas about Unis for this year? Will we do something special for Labor Day?
My understanding is that the "visiting" team wears white jersey. However, the home team can ask the visiting team to wear a dark jersey instead, thus allowing the home team to wear white.Read some UT blog, or something, that said ut was the visiting team but they would wear their Orange shirts and GT would wear White. Whatever that is worth.
They got rid of that rule a few years back when USC and UCLA complained. Just has to be contrasting colors now. You do have to ask permission first so the conference can decide if the colors contrast enough.It's dumb rule from the days of B&W TV anyway. Should be lifted and we could have more color-color games.
