    Are we wearing white shoes this season?...

    I thought we were sticking with black, but in the latest ad, I see white. White shoes with the new look togs really ruins the whole return to a traditional type uni, IMO.

    It might be ok. Bright white looks like crap, but after getting muddied it starts to look pretty tight.

    Well, the first game is before Labor Day, so it is allowed to wear white shoes. After that, a big no-no!

    There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life:
    The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves Orcs. ~ John Rogers

    Re: Are we wearing white shoes this season?...

    I must be the only one on this site who prefers white shoes to black. But I also have to ask, why is it honestly such a big deal to some people?

    I would also add that most of our guys have white shoes in NCAA 09 and they look just fine running up and down the field and scoring touchdowns in white shoes.

    I like the white shoes - changes the entire uni (helmets, jersey, pants, and shoes.) Anyway, doesn't anyone else remember the white Pony's with the red stripe from the 80's??? (I hunted for a picture but got lazy...)

    We could wear pink shoes and I wouldn't care as long as we win.

    P.S. What would make a good entrance song?

    In NCAA 09 (PS3 version), our guys are wearing black shoes/socks, for both home and away. The crappy sideline players (I say crappy because the graphics of sideline players are always pretty cheesy) are wearing white shoes, but this is sideline guys only. The 11 active players are wearing black/black, and I must say, it looks pretty cool :) Too bad we're going w/white, but I'm sure I'll grow to like it.

    So they have to change shoes before they come into the game? Must be pretty fast to be able to do that and get the play off on time!

    I'll join you. I remember several years ago we had them and I just thought they looked really cool on TV.
    But I also have to ask, why is it honestly such a big deal to some people?
    Amen to that.


    May my posts be polite and not misunderstood. (And hopefully funny on occasion.)
