Then have them all flip their bats after a touchdown. Oh wait, wrong sport. Right demographic tho.

If you piss off the old people the attendance will be 20 people.

That's actually a really good point, Im not sure there are any "young" Huskie fans left. How many on this board are still students or have graduated in the last year or two?

They’ve won some big games in the all white jerseys. If it ain’t broke don’t fix it.

They’ve won some big games with the 2000s red black jerseys with huskie helmet. What’s your point?

Old people have most of the money. It would be foolish to piss them off.

If you ask the players, I would bet money that they like the all white jerseys.....and Northwestern, BYU, Nebraska, & Buffalo hate them. Let’s not forget that we almost beat Ohio State in the all white look. I’m a support. We might as well call them the boneyard jerseys.....

Matching the jerseys and pants almost always looks off. The bears do it sometimes and it looks bizarre. It’s not awful, but NIU is blessed with great colors and they can make many great looking combinations. Not to call out other Mac teams, but CMU, WMU, BG...those guys should consider all whites.

RE: Play like a Huskie....put the ball down, let's play.
I think I am the strange, weird and odd man out regarding the uniform discussion, maybe even out of touch & lame. :-)

I don't connect with the whole look-of-the-uniform thing, and if the team went with Penn State style uniforms I'd be cool with that. I'm thinking those would at least best display the mud, dirt, blood and grass stains after a hard fought game.

I'm really excited about Hammock's leadership that I've been reading about. I am looking forward to what this season will bring. What makes it better is his comment to one of the players asking if he was going to tuck his t-shirt in. :-)

Although I don't care about uniform style, the one thing that would make me shake my head at players, is when they showed up to a game with their t-shirts hanging out.

If you old folks stop going to games or giving money because of uniforms then well, good riddance.

Just to make a point, getting old is the ONLY alternative to being dead. Young people can only hope to be old one day.

You seem to be having an argument with yourself, because I don't think many posters on here care about the uniforms, but we do about winning. I'm old and I really like the current road uniforms, so there!

I think the current road uniforms are fine but would prefer the old black helmet-white jersey-black pants combo.

I don't like the all white uniforms or red and white combo that makes us look like Ball State when we're playing Ball State. Not a huge deal, just prefer not seeing guys wearing what appears to be underwear.

Except, as you may have noticed, Ball State has added black to their repertoire of colors. So, now they look more like us than we do.

Maybe we should go with a mustard yellow and poop brown scheme - except, of course, when we play Bowling Green.
