    Sorta mixed signals here

    Per the dp
    "…Embree said the school has talked to Nike about a possible “combat-style” uniform but only for a special occasion. “I really don’t see us going out there and doing anything crazy,” he said. “We have a great mascot in the buffalo and our colors are second to none.”

    I think he's striking the right balance. Bust out the pro combat uni for a black out game or something along with one road game, but keep the classic uni for the other 10.

    They should be reserved for the service academies. No other schools deserve to wear them. End of story.

    What if Nike called them "super duper knock your head off special" unis? It´s just a name.

    I'd be down with an "all-black" uni (matte helmet included) as long as it's pretty conservative. No enlarged Buffalo on the helmet or Black and Gold Checkers.

    Would like to see CU go with a retro silver and black look as an alternate. Mix the Whizzer throw backs with a more modern design. Keep the horns on the helmet. That would be sick.

    I don't mind 1 cool alternate every now and again, but I don't care for the matte finish

    This is true, but I still think ALL black would look better should we go with this. Although I don't see anything wrong with what we have now and should we want a blackout game, just put on black pants. Simple and excellent. Why mess with our great uniforms? We are as classic as a PSU or Bammer, but with a little more zaz... Kinda like the Michigan of the west (but better colors).

    All black with a gold buffalo decal on the helmet, again gold not yellow. Put some silver somewhere on there, it'd be sick.

    Either. It annoys me that we are worried which blouse matches which skirt, when all anyone should care about is winning one. goddam. game.

    That racist! Just ask the Daily Camera! They will make sure to single out Embree on his racial insensitivity...

    I find the application of the word "combat" to football uniforms rather amusing.
