College Football 2014 Season

Recommended Posts

I've never understood those "Glute Stripes" that Sam Houston is rocking. IIRC, Texas Tech had them on an alternate a few years back. They just draw your eye to the player's butts and inner thighs, not something that I need to be concentrating on. Terrible, terrible design.

Lamar has the same UA butt stripes on their unis

I was covering that Lamar game. Sad part is their head coach said he hates those stripes too. When they ordered them he didn't realize the stripes would be on back. He figured they would be normal stripes down the leg. These are the conversations you have during a 2-hour lightning delay.

Those aren't any different than what Utah had before this current re-design with the "topography" of Utah on the pants. Nothing we haven't seen before , it just isn't sublimated this time (These are from 2011)

Those stripes arent on his ass, they are completely different

Not the stripes. There's graphical typography of the Utah landscape in the hamstring stripes.

Arkansas state is being forced to remove the cross from our helemts that had the initials of two team members who passed away this offseason. Apperantly made it up to the state Supreme Court.

Somehow I'm guessing that the Freedom From Religion Foundation was involved.

Is Arkansas State a predominately religious school? And I don't mean that as is it a "Catholic" or whatever school. Auburn is a very conservative, religious city/campus. Is Ark State similar? (I know I worded that horribly, and I'm sorry.)

The "State" in the name pretty much guarantees they are a state run (with public tax dollars) school with no religious affiliation. Hence the issue with a cross.

I feel like we are a normal southern school. Really don't want to get religious here but don't think it's possible not to. I know so far on twitter the community is in a rage so far. With our next home game not till next Saturday just gonna have to see how much this flames up.

Being a state school and not a private means they can not have religious images around campus (outside of chapels as long as they are non denominational) other wise it violates the separation of church and state

I wasn't meaning the school being affiliated with a religion. That was my fault on wording.

As someone who believes in the separation of church and state I do find it a tad petty that the crosses would need to be removed altogether but I understand the legal circumstances.

There's really no reason for the cross to be there... that's why it's a good reason to take it out.

I don't know how but I was able to talk my wife into getting tix to the LSU-A&M game on thanksgiving during that 2 hour lightning delay. Perhaps it was the alcohol talking ;)

Do what every other team does to honor fallen players/staff and use their initials or number.
