Uniforms 


Anyone have the low down on what CMU will be wearing VS Toledo tonight?  I saw on CMU basketball twitter that they "will be sporting something a little different"
Going black for hoops too??

Probably just trying to change their luck... didn't work.ohlord They need to try every combination possible until they find one they can shoot better wearing.

Our colors are maroon and gold!  Sick of seeing all the teams wearing black whose colors are not black.

I TOTALLY agree, black is not nor has it been one of our colors for at least as far back as I can remember.

I'm fine with it as an occasional alternate uniform (unlike the Broncos that have adopted it as a primary color). Fisher wore the black helmet in the senior bowl, obviously it resonates with the players.

Yes, imitating us (and everyone else for that matter) will not put butts in the seats.  I'd stick with the ketchup and mustard, although I must say the huge number of fatties I see at your game look better in black than in lighter colors biggrin

With a less than .500 all time MAC FB record, it appears the color of the donkeys' uniforms make very little difference!

Come on Doctor, we're talking CMU gear and how it looks on the CMU fatties. Now you're talking football.  Pick a topic will you.  Alright...............3-9, 3-9, 6-6, your rival seems to have your number.  12 wins in 3 years of Enos = Championship culture eek1, ten winning seasons in 20 years = a culture of winning eek1

As usual you pick some limited time frame and act as though that it the norm, and you get amnesia when it comes to Enos, Debo, Flynn, etc.

Funny hearing a fan from a school that pretty much abandoned their primary colors criticizing CMU.

Black sells, Ketchup and Mustard, not so much.  Called marketing.  You know, like paining a toolshed and calling it an upgrade.

Sounds like abandoning tradition to me. Maybe when navy blue is the hot color WMU will change again, if the marketers say so.

Onward to the brown and gold right?

Well if it's abandoning tradition why do you roll out black uniforms in football and basketball and use it as a marketing tool to draw fans in?

Ketchup and mustard sell well in the grocery department, not so much in licensed apparel.
