"Black for Black's Sake"/"Gray for Gray's Sake" Worst Offenders

Recommended Posts

Butler (or any school that has navy blue as a school color) wearing black uniforms is about as BFBS as it gets.

Im pretty sure Butlers away uniforms have always been black, just a Butler thing.

Always? I'm sure not always. It probably goes back to the 90s and they haven't gotten away from it because it's coincided with the most success the program has ever had.

Quite possibly the most unknown BFBS offender:

From the school's official website

Since 1888, CU-Boulder students have proudly worn the official school colors: silver and gold, symbolizing the mineral riches of Colorado.

Today, black is often used as a background color to provide greater contrast for the gold.

That's not black for black's sake. That's black for contrast so that their uniforms aren't butt-fugly sake.

Ummm...

Warriors-2014-15-Slate-Alternate-Uniform

Also, too many college football and basketball teams to name. Makes me nauseous just thinking about it.

I agree, they look so weird for the Warriors.

I remember the Mets and Reds being the big offenders in the BFBS department, thankfully they toned it down.

Black is not a school color, and never has been one. I'd say that's BFBS.

Butler's identity is pretty vague. If you google their logo, you really can't tell if they use royal, cobalt , navy... and half of them have blue text underneath while the other half are black.

See, that's not so much an "offender," because it actually looks good. :P

Although to be fair, I liked their uniforms better when they used a brighter shade of gold.

My biggest BFBS AND GFGS offender is Kentucky in both football and basketball.

The gray uniform is 100x better than the black one for football..As far as basketball, Kentucky has only wore black once and that was to honor Mr. Wildcat, Bill Keightley:

and gray once:

and believe me when I tell you that the fans were outraged by the gray uniform. At least the black one was to honor a legend.

Worst BFBS:

Yes I do, but that is one ugly uniform.

Am I really the only one here who thinks Kentucky's chrome helmet (not the uniform that goes with it, just the helmet itself) is boss?

That depends. Does "boss" mean terrible? I've had some terrible bosses. If so, then no, we all think it's boss.

in a vacuum this look does look good not taking into account UK history and school colors
