    Is it just me?

    Or is OSU's orange & black really hurting their PR right now... I'm a fan of the colors typically (high school colors), but I've been having double-takes every time the ESPN photo of Smart comes up... Looks like prison garb to me.

    Just you. If you think the colors are hurting their reputation, you are thinking about it too much.

    I third or fourth or however many now...it's just you. Doesn't even appear to be a need for a poll.

    Normally I would say it's just you...however, I just saw a picture of their team bus:



    So maybe it's not just you.

    It's just that jacket. If it was white with orange and black trim you wouldn't notice.

    I agree. And Smart's contrite pose. (And no I don't really believe orange is a PR issue, though I bet a PR staffer has already brought it up...) It is funny though how it exactly matches jumpsuit orange.

    My white guilt also feels it necessary to point out that if you see a black guy in orange and black, and the first you think is prison....that might be a prollem.

    I chuckled, but that said it's all you.

    Hence the white baby in the jumpsuit in the followup post. Baby jumpsuit available at Sears by the way...

    I like the orange and black, especially their black uniforms


    When you find that one show that connects you to the world, you become someone different. Someone better. When that show is taken from you, what do you become then?
