So after all this rebranding we now have less combos than before. Why are the players being ignored who have said they WANT to mix it up some. Most of us were expecting BDC would be a grinch on anything beyond the official release images for 2013, but to yank one away from us that is as quintessential Oregon State as it gets just seems wrong. We have the unis so the only thing in the way is BDC underestimating that fans and players want a little more variety. The Orange and Black combo could be used very well to not overdo the all blacks and especially would work well for hot early September games and when wanting to inject a little more school color pride and flair. The fans with common sense figured 3 home games with all black, 2 with all orange, and 1 with orange and black would have been about perfect. Instead we are getting twice as much of the all black even though the all orange polled quite a bit higher in a poll of favorite new uniform combos. Stuck in a bad place now, with supposedly just two games with orange, I lean to making one of the orange uses the traditional school colors look of orange and black, but don’t like that the all black gets so much more exposure in comparison. We already were let down with the tartan endzones being axed by BDC over Tinker’s plans and black unis on black endzones with white fonts means there won’t be as much color pop in Reser Stadium this fall as their ought to be.
