The Craziest Uniform I've Ever Seen

I pose this question to anyone (and hopefully the guy giving the peace sign can give an answer with first-hand knowledge).

Why does one need to wear a helmet to play in a marching band??? :huh:

Only one team ever has, but I can't remember if it was Stanford or Cal.

It was Stanford's band. You have to give the Oregon band members credit for learning from that event and being prepared for another such incident. :upside:

Actually, they only wear those at Half Time for the half time show - normally they just have plain all-green suits or something close to that.

Well, in that case . . . :P

Come on, weren't you in band in high school? Didn't you get things chucked at you? Hey wait a minute... I wasn't in band and I had things chucked at me! Maybe they know that the halftime show of that game will be really bad and they need protection. :D

Why would band members need shoulder #'s??????

Up until recently, Villanova' pep band members wore blue hockey jerseys, complete with numbers and (nick)names on the back. Much cheeziness.

Did anyone else notice there are 2 guys flashing the peace sign*? Which one is responsible for tipping off Uni Watch?

* of course, if these were any college students except band geeks, they'd probably be flashing the "Shocker!" sign... so count your blessings.

If competitive kayaking were a major sport instead of baseball, these are what the Oakland A's would wear, and everyone here would regard them as "classic" and "timeless" uniforms. Context is everything. Other than the Princess-Leia-on-Hoth quilting on the vests, these seem perfectly unobjectionable, except for their pointlessness. It's green and yellow in a relatively conservative uniform. Yawn. I defy anyone to say with a straight face that these are worse than the Mets black alts, or the Twins mismatched blue alts, or whatever the heck that was that the Rockies wore last year.
