    Re: Surprised no one has made this excuse yet

    Can it be a curse when "it" has only happened once?


    True and Valiant

    I also remember a game with Kansas when Cy (wore a huge suit then) went out to center field, squatted, and "pooped" a couple of chickens that had been dyed blue then chased them around.

    Exactly, I'm not using it as an excuse.

    I'm just saying I'm surprised no one on here has been stupid enough to post it yet.

    Yeah they are nice.

    And it doesnt look so much like ketchup and mustard like I thought they would be.

    Glad they didn't go with white and red sidestripes.

    Re: Surprised no one has made this excuse yet

    I went through phases during the first half-hour or so of the game. When I first saw them, I immediately thought, "Wow! Yellow! That's really bright!" Then I liked them, then I didn't like them (because I thought they really did make us look like Ronald McDonald), then I settled on liking them. They're not the best thing ever, but they are pretty nice. One thing I did notice that made me like them was that as bright as the colors are (jersey too) in person, TV cameras make them a fair bit darker. On TV our uniforms look pretty close to true cardinal and gold.

    Count me as someone who really doesn't like our uniforms this year. We don't match.

    Now that would look silly. They have to go back to white pants if they use a white helmet.

    Re: Surprised no one has made this excuse yet

    The yellow ronald mcdonald pants are NOT the reason that we can't seem to win in football. Although those yellow mcdonald pants remind me of all the losing in the Crymore and Waldo years, and that I can do without.


    The reasons for non winning football imho:

    NO Recruiting Base
    Limited fan base
    Smallest athletic budget in the big 12
    No will by any isu administration to fund a winner in football for very long.


    These are NOT in any order of importance or priority. Its just the way they came off the top of my head.

    Jamie Pollard is working to improve #2, #3 and #4, which might help with #1, though #1 will never be a local recruiting base.

    Liked 'em...looked better than the photos we saw and great under the lights.

    IMO, they won't look as good during the day.
