    Unpopular Opinions

    I really like this uniform combo, and I wouldn't mind if they kept it for another 20 years. The only complaint I have about the Panthers uniforms are the helmet stripes. First, they look different depending which helmet model they are on. Second, The stripes are Black with a Blue outline on the Silver background of the helmet, but the silver pants have a Blue stripe with Black outline. My solution would be to just take the stripes off of te helmet, or have a tapered stripe like the rest of the uniform that was Blue with Black outline

    College Football uniforms- 2018

    VT going with their traditional home combo for their road game at UNC this Saturday. UNC is going white-out. I'm not upset about it... but this is the first time this season this combo has been worn, and it's being worn on the road... I enjoy the numerous combinations, but this should've been worn at home already this season.
  3. That was the point of Color Rush... Same color from Shoulders to toes.
  4. The asterisk indicates when they'll don the blue top/white bottom combo.
  5. They are wearing white at home when they play Dallas in a few weeks, so I imagine we'll see white over burgundy.
  6. Both managers, Boone and Cora, were put into the best possible situation to succeed with the rosters they have. Both teams are loaded, and it kills me when ESPN or any other sports network decides to drool over both of them. With their payrolls, and talent on the bench, they SHOULD win their division and make it into the playoffs. To me, Craig Counsell, Brian Snitker, Bud Black, or Bob Melvin should honestly win Manager of the Year. They had much less to work with all season, and all of those four had slim chances at the beginning of the season to make it into the playoffs, much less win their division. But none of those names are big enough for the voters, and FIRST YEAR MANAGER/PLAYOFFS are the only thing they are going to look at.
  7. I am more than happy with what the Braves have done this year. I went in expecting a 2nd or 3rd place finish on the season, but looked forward to the next few years when the young guys came up and established themselves in the Majors. A little help from DC falling off, and the performance from the rookies have made me even more excited to see where this team will be. A few issues with the bullpen, figuring out what to do with the rotation, and what to do with Markakis are the things that I see should be the focus of the off-season. Camargo played his way into the 3B position, and unless a superstar decides to come to Cobb County, I think he's earned his place. I'd like to see them push a game 5, but I don't know if they can do that with how much they've used the pen so far. Folty needs a big game to get it back to LA.
  8. I get that, and I even mentioned that above. This is a league where sock lengths result In fines, and players aren’t allowed to expose their stomachs (not that I want Elliot to go with the crop top look) but this is some how allowed?
  9. How is this even legal? He’s not even wearing shoulder pads... he did this in Seattle, but no where near this bad. To me, this should be more of a safety issue rather than a uniform regulation issue. Wear your pads, or don’t play, simple as that

    They arent, unfortunately. They’ve been selling the ‘hokie effect’ shirts in both Maroon and orange for Saturday’s game. The Alumni section/season ticket holders on the home side is notorious for wearing maroon only, even when they call for the orange effect.

    Los Angeles NFL Brands Discussion

    I doubt the league would allow that on a full time basis, but I also didn't expect them to allow the throwbacks for more than 2 games either since they are so concerned with their branding.

    Virginia Tech going All Maroon Saturday night against Notre Dame. This time, with the new matte maroon helmet. All Maroon is a fan favorite, and its also supposed to be a stripe the stadium event, although I'm skeptical with how that will work.
  13. The only benefit I can see from this Yankee/Red Sox series is that its in the Division series round and not the League Championship round. At most we have 5 games for ESPN to drool all over. Really pulling for Houston from the AL to make it back. Braves in the NL would be my dreams come true, but I think they are still a year or two away from being a true championship contender. If they don't make it, then I'd like to see Milwaukee make it to the WS.

    2018 MLB Season

    So we had farewells for Adam Jones in Baltimore, Hunter Pence in San Francisco, and Joe Mauer in Minnesota yesterday. Were there any more? I know that DC had a standing ovation for Harper during his last home stand.
  15. My favorite part about this was the narrative of Brice coming in as a hero to lead the team to victory ESPN used all night anytime they showed the highlights. If a running back has 203 yards... you should win your game.

    I hope not, its just so much of the jersey taken up by the number, and certain fonts would be terrible with it. These uniforms are slightly boring, and I really dislike the contrasting nameplate. I hope that doesn't become the norm either.

    NFL 2018 changes

    It's only a matter of time until they break out their Home purple with the new purple pants. It won't look too bad, since they have the black socks... but still...

    Its not about "individuality", it looks like garbage. Its called a uniform for a reason... I wish they would take it seriously. There's no reason for shirts to hang out past the jersey unless someone wants an extra place to grab on to. Also... exposed back plates and exposed knees need to go away for safety reasons...

    2018 High School Football

    Several schools in Virginia are moving game times and dates around for this week in preparation for the storms, including a few strange start times. Our school has moved from Friday night to Thursday night at 7:00p. However, one school in the area has moved their homecoming game from Friday at 7:00p to Thursday at 5:30p. They also cancelled the pre-game homecoming parade, and moved the homecoming 'dance/tailgate' to before the game.
  25. Danny Kanell isn't a fan of Florence's impact on this weekend's cancellations...
