We wore all black 3 different times, and one game we wore the black helmets and black pants with the white jersey.

We did not wear all blue once this season.

I hate the black football uniforms. If we do that in basketball I will personally knock on a few doors to discuss. Absolutely NO to black basketball jerseys, are you serious.

And I find needing to have 6-8 different helmets kind of arrogant. We need 1 helmet logo and color that everyone relates to. How many helmet logos does Penn State have, Alabama, Nebraska, Michigan, Georgia, Carolina etc etc etc. black enough already to clown questions

To be fair we had the same decal and facemask every game this year, the helmet color was the only thing that changed game per game (blue white or black)

That alone is $120,000 just for helmets for a 4-8 team. Do you know how many color and logo combinations we have! It bothers me.

Wow this makes me feel old. Black is only part of Duke's color scheme because they started wearing awful black uniforms. Prior to whenever this trend started you will not see a thread of back in anything Duke related.

I understand but it's not like we were Oregon with a different look every week. We have 3 colored pants (blue, white, black), 3 colored jerseys (blue, white, black), and 3 colored helmets (blue, white, black). The logo on the helmet never changed this year, with the exception of the foreman field commemorative decal for the last home game and that was just an addition, and we used the same chrome facemask no matter the color of the helmet all season long. We had a pretty consistent look week to week, with a change only in color combination, and we used some combinations more than once. It's not like the past where we used a different decal every week, with 4 different colors to choose from and mix and match. The team buys these uniforms ahead of time I'm pretty sure, they had no idea they were going to end up 4-8.

We have school colors, beautiful ones. The athletic teams ought to be wearing them. They are also fairly unique. Only Villanova has something similar; and even then the shades aren't identical and they don't have the silver.

Look at these. Which one would you want to do away with? Explain why these aren't "millennial approved." I could do for simpler trim work on the shorts; but they still look great. Also, it might be cool to have silver home unis one year soon.

in 3 to 4 years, I'm sure you will love the simple black and white (if no school take over the trend between those years).

(Just me guessing trying to play with psychology and trend)

RE: Black jersey for ODU Basketball?
Lol I remember some of the meltdown voiced by VCU fans when they rocked the grey a couple of years ago. Nike throws them so much Final Four boosting gear it is crazy. If I'm not mistaken, I believe they came to the Ted with grey warm ups this year! Lol.

Of course, if UA wants to throw out some special edition ODU stuff that is black, I'm good with it. If it doesn't bother those guys getting up for morning workouts on that court, it doesn't bother me a bit.

You're better suited to play in a sandbox.
