    one thing I want to complain about

    How come the cheer leaders in front of the band have such different color uniforms. My wife actually accused me of lying when I told her that A@M only had male cheer leaders. The girls in front of the band looked like A@M brought them.

    Any reason why? Just curious.

    This is not really a complaint. I just wanted to go with the overall flow of the board today.

    Re: one thing I want to complain about

    Yeah I'm so confused by the colors. I'm guessing the football uniform "cardinal" isn't 100% accurate. Although, the cheerleaders uniforms are almost Minnesota maroon.

    Funny...we had the same discussion in our section. I can't believe the cheerleader "red" is really cardinal.

    Maybe the ordered the Uni's before the change was made. That is the only thing I can think of at this point.

    I'll say this...the cheerleaders on that dance team were smoking hot.

    Re: one thing I want to complain about

    Most likely, they get their uniforms from a different vender than do the football team and pom squad. So, they all have a different definition of "cardinal." Hopefully they get this straightened out because it does look pretty dumb. Also, let's hope the band has the right color of cardinal when they get new uni's.

    Re: one thing I want to complain about

    I think the carinal on the uniforms is very close to right, as are most of the Nike things that are out because they are the official provider for football and basketball. But if you look anytime we have cheerleaders or other sports that have others brands on, the color is quite variable. (some of that stuff may even be Nike) I think it is just a case of when they ordered not being able to get exactly the right shade this first cycle. I think we will see it work its way out over the next year or so.

    The volleyball uniforms are a bit off as well.

    Re: one thing I want to complain about

    That is the color of uniform that Nike sent.
    The cheer squad is not happy about it.

    Re: one thing I want to complain about

    I believe the issue was actually with the pom squad and not the cheerleaders. The pom squad is the group of 20 or so girls that spend the entire game in front of the band. At the aTm game they were wearing white jerseys with maroon pants. And yes, when they were out on the field before the game I actually thought they were with aTm.

    I thought the cheer squad was much closer. That is the co-ed group and the girls were wearing the same skirt uni thing they have had on all year. While it may not be a spot on match with what the players were wearing, it looked like a solid representation of cardinal and gold to me.

    .... hopefully next year they can get the band in something with the new colors and replace the ISU and Cyclones flags they run around the field. I understand a delay with the band, as 300 band unis wouldn't be cheap, but how much could it be to replace those flags? It looks so awful when those guys are wearing cardinal and gold uniforms running around with ketchup and mustard flags after a score.

    ... Ahh, I love a good fashion debate on Fanatic, gets my mind off the horrible awful football season we are having.

    Re: one thing I want to complain about

    I like our colors more than the old red.

    But are any of these colors really "cardinal". They do seem more maroon to me as well.

    I'm thinking cardinal like the bird. A deep red, not the purple hues.

    The FB unis aren't bad. But just about every other sport and the cheerleaders seem off.

    Amazing how we all sat through that game, and this is the "one thing" he wants to complain about!

    Probably going to be waiting quite a while on that one, but I'm sure the colors will be correct. at about $500-$600 dollars per uniform the cheapest it would would be $150,000. Probably more with extras for sizes and that was based on the low uniform range and about 30 fewer members that are in it now. So with that kinda money being thrown around I can all but guarantee that by the time the order is placed new uniforms will have had a good going over.

    Also, we were having the same conversation about the Dance Teams uniforms. One of the guys that has been sitting behind them for 3 years asked if that was an Aggie dance team. I could really go for them bringing back last weeks volleyball shorts and tight Jerseys
