Exclamation Favorite College Football Team ... By Color
FOX College Football's Twitter Page started these last week, favorite college football team that wears a specific color. Last week was red, this week was blue, not sure if they will continue with other colors in the future.

So what are your favorites by color?

Mine:

Red: Ohio State
Blue: Penn State

Orange: Illinois
Green: Michigan State
Yellow/Gold: California Berkeley (Are they more yellow or blue? I don't know if there is any other school that's predominantly yellow or gold)

In general, I don't find the "warm" colors (red, orange, yellow and pink) attractive on athletic uniforms — or clothing in general (although they can work well in "small doses," such as, for example, a pink tie on a white dress shirt and charcoal grey suit).

The "cool" colors (blue, gray, green, purple, etc.) tend to work better on athletic uniforms.

Red is probably the most popular color on college athletic uniforms.

I'm a complete sucker for light blue or baby blue hues in general. UNC and UCLA colors have always been among my favorites.

I agree. Very popular. I like Cincinnati with the primarily black uniforms and a slight bit of red. That looks cool. But when Indiana goes with primarily red unis ... not a good look for the Hoosiers. But that's just me. It's very subjective. Many folks disagree with me.

Cincinnati wear black jerseys for most home games. I looked it up, and the last 2 years we've worn red jerseys once a year, white home jerseys once a year, and black jerseys for all other home games.

Pants colors change for every game.

When Vanderbilt football wears black uniforms (with a bit of white and gold) ... strong. Very cool look.

So... UC homer pick, but Red and/or Black: UC.

But I'll play along...

Part of the problem is going to be that most of the "big" schools have subtle, but distinct, shades of the primary colors they use. So, for instance, the "Crimson" of Ohio State (i.e. "Red") or the "Old Gold" (i.e. "Yellow") of WVU.

But more generally speaking:
"Green"...a split here between Marshall and Ohio U.
"Red" (besides Cincinnati)... Stanford (yeah, yeah, it's Cardinal)
"Blue"... WVU, though I prefer their older uniforms over their newer ones.
"Purple"... Northwestern
"Black" (besides Cincinnati)... Colorado, though I can remember them in sky-blue uniforms as well
"Gold"...Navy

On the flip-side, teams who's uniforms make me ill:
Green... USF (that lime green is disgusting) and Oregon (love their old uniforms and logos, but their neon junk is terrible).
"Black"...Louisville. Black is not one of their primary colors but somehow they managed to take an "accent" and appropriate it when wearing black got popular. Besides...Louisville.
"Blue"...Boise State. Don't like the shade and their blue uniforms on that unholy blue "smurf turf" is brutal.
"Orange"...Virginia Tech. Whoever thought of pairing maroon with orange ought to be put in prison.
"Gold"...split here between Pittsburgh and Notre Dame.

Iowa.

Other schools with Black as a primary color:
-Colorado (Black and Gold)
-Vanderbilt (Black and Gold)
-Oklahoma State (Black and Orange)
-Wake Forrest (Black and Yellow)
-Oregon State (Black and Orange)
-Texas Tech (Black and Red)
-Army (Black and Gold)

And that's not counting schools that occasionally play in black or might have a "blackout" uniform.

Red: University of Georgia. Besides UGa...
I would have to go with either Alabama or Nebraska.

Blue: University of Kentucky

Orange: as much as I dislike the Vols, I have to admit that they wear the color Orange well.

Green: University of Oregon, hands down. UNT is an honorable mention though.

Gold: tie between Notre Dame and Georgia Tech.

Black: another tie between Texas Tech & Cincinnati

Maroon: Virginia Tech with Texas A & M not far behind.

I always associate Notre Dame with Green (Fighting "Irish").

When the Vols wear primarily orange ... hideous. However, UT has a primarily grey uniform with orange touches that looks very cool.

As noted, this is VERY subjective.
