    Wearing road pants at home

    I was screwing around in NCAA '13 last night, and had our guys wearing the white road pants with the home cardinal jerseys. It looked a hell of a lot better on screen than I had initially imagined. I always thought you would need white accents in our jerseys to make it look good, but thanks to the gold stripe on the pants, it worked well.

    I think it would be cool to see us try it for a game. Had a sharp look to it and ends the "USC knock off" talk. Not anything to switch to full time, but a solid alternate.


    In 1984, I was hospitalized for approaching perfection.

    I don't care as long as they wear their big boy pants to every game.

    I could get behind that, and bringing back the red pants on the road occasionally as well

    Interesting... did you get a screen shot?

    I'm not trying to reignite the uniform debate but I was thinking about gray the other night. Gray or light gray as our accent/supporting color made sense to me. Its the color of storm clouds and tornadoes and would look great with cardinal and gold. imo

    Re: Wearing road pants at home

    Cardinal pants, cardinal jerseys, & a cardinal helmet would be too much. We need helmet alternates like Baylor. One white & one gold (yellow). Would love to see cardinal pants and jerseys with a gold (yellow) helmet. And of course the all white uniform.

    Seems like they did a few times late McCarney era, maybe the last year before I-State. Was that Chizik's first season?

    They did look like Chiefs twins, but I liked them a lot.

    Edit: It was definitely pre-chizik, haven't been able to track down a pic yet.

    I've always thought this would be a good look. Can somebody mock up a photo?

    And I hope you all appreciate the hard work I put in to that.

    I think this combo was used a bit in 04 too, which would have been my freshman year. I swear I can distinctly remember them from the student section.

    But that combo looked infinitely better than the cardinal jerseys/gold numbers over white pants combo from the Russell Athletic days:

    Re: Wearing road pants at home

    I agree, was thinking about that last weekend. We should just wear the whites all the time. They look hellacool and ends the USC copy debate.
