    Gray's not a school color. Ugly.

    White isn't a school color either. Ugly. (If we're going to be stupid about this)

    I'm liking the gray too. Wonder if this is what Fred has in mind? Thought it would be a little darker but I like our colors on gray.

    Those are tight! I'd prefer a darker gray, but love that we are at least experimenting with alternates. We have an awesome graphics/design department... might as well use them!

    Considering these are the same design as the new men's uniforms, I can definitely see the men getting the grays as well.

    Our colors actually stand out from the gray, so I think they will look good. Cardinal and Gold pop off it well. A ton better than say a dark blue or a green.

    Don't like the grey but I would say that about most teams.

    Our colors do look pretty good on Gray, however, I still prefer Gold as our alternate uniform color.

    Like...i like a little variety in the uniforms, so long as we don't put the MU zodiac on our helmets, ala VT stone helmets.

    there is a limit to uniform variety

    Hallie looks good in any color. She doesn't mind showing the backside.

    I like it more that I would have expected I would. If that sentence makes sense.

    It looks fine — but it's Ohio State with gold trim.

    While our colors looks good on the gray, I don't go for these changes, some of which are very exotic. I prefer sticking to tradition. Seems like the more successful schools stick with tradition. You don't build tradition by frequently changing uniform colors and styles - STICK TO SCHOOL COLORS.
