  1. I watched the game yesterday and I found the Ole Miss helmets gaudy. The light blue looked horrible with that shade of red, IMO I respectfully disagree. I think the powder blue helmets are a terrific look for Ole Miss. It was a good look last year with the red jerseys, too. Some of the best-looking uni's in college football, IMO.
  2. This isn't accurate. MSRebel22's post sums up the name's history pretty well.
  3. The fact that they match nothing is beside the point. They are historically accurate and everyone loves them. And personally I think they look amazing. If you think they look amazing and everyone loves them then why did they abandon that shade of blue and opt to go with navy helmets since the late 90's (not exactly sure what year they switched)? From what I can recall that shade of blue was abandoned for navy so they could actually have a consistent shade blue but I could be wrong. I have no idea. Everyone loves Colonel Reb and the Grey jerseys too, but you don't see his logo or those jerseys being used anymore. If I was the athletic director or Hugh Freeze I could tell you. So your question is literally impossible to answer factually, but everyone does love them. A majority of the fan base liking something unfortunately doesn't always constitute to keeping it or wearing it. Fellow Ole Miss fan here. I'd say a strong majority of fans prefer the navy helmets, given that it's the actual school color. A small, vocal minority prefers the powder blue helmets, or as they were once known as, the "robin's egg blue" helmets.
  4. I don't know if I would describe the public's reaction to the red road caps as an "outcry." A lot of fans like red on the road.
  5. So bleepin obvious? The Cardinals look better in red on the road.
  6. Not liking your Ole Miss concept. Need to have the double white should stripes. They have always been a part of the home jerseys.
  7. I hope the matchup looks like this. This picture is from the 2006 preseason game between the Colts/Saints in Jackson, MS.

  9. I agree on Ole Miss' red. Great jersey, probably my favorite of theirs.
  10. The Cardinals wore the red alternate jersey for one game! In the late 90s, early 00s against the Braves at home for a Saturday game.
  11. I think you have to put Ole Miss up there:
  12. I heard Mississippi State is wearing their white jerseys to force LSU into using using their purple jersey/yellow pants combo for the opening game Thursday night on ESPN(2?). pretty ugly look...
