UW Huskies to wear black jerseys

Saw this today from the Daily. Anyone know anything more about this? I know the basketball team wears black jerseys but come on... the football team? Really? Guess Husky football has fallen even further than I had thought.

Could be because Coach Steve Sarkisian seems to have a thing for wearing black, even going back to his USC days.

Two reasons: Recruiting and merchandising.

+50. That is a huge draw. Here in Eugene, the players often will vote on which uniforms they want to wear on a given day.

Of course the flip side is that as a fan, it's frustrating as hell when you don't know what color your team's jerseys are going to be.

The Duck uniforms suck no matter which version they use. Go back to the old green and yellow with Donald on the helmet.

I would hope that a storied program like UW could be above this but realistically I know no one is. When Notre Dame wears the black, we will know nothing is sacred anymore.

I agree with this in any sport. If black isn't part of the team color, why use it all of the sudden? But then again gray is the typical away baseball color regardless of whether the team has gray in their logo. Same for white jerseys, although white is in most logos, but same idea.

So black is the new gray/white? Those 3 colors are just interchangable as base colors?

But USF doesn't really have much black. It was stupid when they used a black U on the helmet for a while, but finally they changed it for this season to green. The only black they have is the top of their main crest.

They're interchangable base colors because they're not colors, making a red uniform all of a sudden would be weird for the Huskies, these will be fine, I liked the b-ball uniforms in black.

Here's the short answer to the question originally posed: Because Nike is the devil.

Nike is not the devil. Marketing is the devil. Nike makes some really attractive stuff, including uniforms. Problem is, they can't sell the attractive stuff to the borderline fan or blue-chip recruit. In a way, it's more the fault of the consumer than the manufacturer.
