    Sweet.

    Wear them w/ the gold pants, though, not cardinal bottoms. If we could get alt-gold helmet, even better.

    Those would be hideous. Our gold is looking more and more distasteful every season. I've said it for years, but our colors should be the same as the letterman's jackets/old school Tailgate gear. The JT throwbacks gold pants are dead on.

    There's a reason our away uniforms with cardinal pants are so sharp.

    Love the gold jersey, but why would they be preparing it for Montgomery? He wont even play this year, wouldn't this be White's jersey or something?

    You can still have limited play time as a red shirt.

    He will still dress like all of the other reshirts, walk ons and guys that won't play.

    Oh, I figured it would be like the basketball redshirts sitting out and he would be in the stands or at least in just street clothes on the sidelines.

    What about white helmets though? Is the gold uni really why Colin Bevins transferred? Did Jeremiah George flee practice the other day after seeing the gold unis and that's why he's not in the videos? Would Jack Trice approve of the gold unis? Should I email Pollard or burn my tickets? So many unanswered questions.

    In all honesty, we are 1 alternate helmet away from 18 different uni combinations...not counting the Trice throwbacks. Dare I say...white?

    I do like the cardinal road pants.

    Could they darken the hue a bit on the current gold? I assume your examples point to a less-bright-yellow(?). I'd be OK with that. An all-gold or gold-cardinal-gold alternate, then, might not seem so extreme. It would require new wardrobe, but if alternates are in the works anyway, maybe no biggie.

    So, apparently I'm wrong. Per wikipedia:
    For some reason I thought there were a certain number of quarters they could play during a red shirt year.
