im kind of worried that since they are telling us to wear yellow on saturday that Oregon will wear all yellow

Which would actually look pretty good. That look was missing from the previous set.

In my opinion, that UVA-Louisiana Tech game easily runs away with the best looking match up of the weekend.

My vote would have gone to Georgia-Tennessee. I thought it refreshing to see two classic uniforms without the need for alternate jerseys and helmets, wierd non-school colors, black for black's sake, unnecessary striping, and goofy number fonts.

It looked like Tennessee had made the black number outline thinner so it almost looked like no outline. I personally liked that but I'm not a TV spotter trying to figure out numbers either

I sat in the press box for UGA/UT and had no problem seeing the numbers with the thinner black outline. However I don't know about others. I didn't hear of any complaints, but that doesn't mean there weren't.

It seems liike every week people expect Oregon to wear what they are asking the fans to wear and it almost never happens. When will people quit worrying about it?

That's a beauty! Love the Aggietrooper look, it's great to see one that is finally without crappy piping and such. It's also great to see an Aggie team that's actually good this year too! :D

Given a blackout, here's what I think the uniforms should have looked like:

It would be great if they did that combo only with this helmet:

Pictures of BYU's blackout uniforms--not really a fan, but it could have been worse. The Oval-Y helmet logo should have stayed blue with white Y instead of the inverse.

Yeah, I don't really like this, nor do I understand it (in that I can't figure out what the reason for a blackout is...there's plenty of better things they could've done with a special uniform). It'd be one thing if the Cougars were still wearing the black-trimmed Sarkisian-era set, then this would make a little more sense. But with the identity as it is now, it just seems completely unneccessary.

I seriously want to know... at what point does it become obvious to everybody that the whole "black out" stuff is completely played out? The whole point at one time, I guess, was that it was a special deal, something you didn't see all the time. Now... what, Ohio does it? And Duke? Shouldn't any self-respecting CFplayer's first reaction to seeing his team's all black tuff-guy outfits be, "hey, didn't Duke just do that?"

It's now beyond lame, IMO.

Because kids think black looks cool. It's that simple. It's not about being special, it's about looking cool. The only exception is when a teams normal color is black. Then white and silver are cool (although, kids tend to love wearing black even when it's their normal color).

Huh? Tennessee's road uniforms are textbook BFBS. The black outlines and NOB's are so random and unneccessary compared to the rest of their identity. Either add black trim to the home uniforms or bring back the Helton-era roads:

There is rumors swirling around campus that Oregon may wear some sort of throwback/retro jersey this weekend. The speculation seems to be a resurrection of these...http://media.katu.com/images/091022_Wheaton_pick_320.jpg
