    Gold Out Nebraska!

    I know I'm looking past Kansas on this one but if we want to have a successful gold out we need to get the ball rolling as early as possible.

    Unless the game is at 2:30, sunny, AND they hand out free teeshirts, it will not look good.

    Re: Gold Out Nebraska!

    It would be cool if everyone did but for some reason some people in the fan base like to come up with excuses on why they don't want to wear one of the school colors to a game.

    Watching all of these other teams do this and get it right just makes me envious. Even the hawks can get it right by alternating colors. Why can't we all just get on the same page and do this it's really not that hard. Please wear a YELLOW shirt. I don't care if it doesn't say Cyclones on it. Missouri just looked AWESOME on TV Saturday night. Lets get it together and wear yellow.

    Re: Gold Out Nebraska!

    These always make sense in September and most of October. If the temp is freezing during the game I don't expect many people to be wearing t-shirts.

    I'm in. This is my last chance for the foreseeable future to wear my Golden Rules - Beat Nebraska T-shirt. Although it might be nice to break out for a non-conference BB game against the Fuskers in the future.

    Lets quit copying other schools. Let's do something completely unique that other schools haven't already done. Lets wear a color that doesn't make sense. I say we have a "purple out".

    uugh. Here we go again.

    Gold out against NE was a bad idea a couple years ago, because all it did was make the NE fans stand out. If we wear cardinal red, they are not as noticable.

    Few, if anyone, has gold outerwear.

    Doing things like this can be fun and effective, but you have to be smart about it.

    Re: Gold Out Nebraska!

    Would rather do a "Cardinal-out" - that way all of the crappy kNU gear gets lost in the crowd instead of standing out.
