That include Pac-10, -8, Big Six, -Five, AAWU & PCC history as well?

\at least it wasn't Oregon, they'd just find a different shade of the same color to wear

They spent all their time on coordinating fashion choices, and not enough time on football... way to look good losing.

Good. Also, ASU, your colors are maroon and gold, so F*CKING WEAR THEM. I love the redesign, but black is passe, as everyone does it and it is not distinctive at all.

Can we do with every Oregon uniform? Eventually, they'll have to wear something that doesn't look like it was designed by a hyperactive six-year old.

The reverse happens to LSU at least once every year. LSU has a tradition of wearing white jerseys at home, but that is against the rules so LSU has to ask the visitors' permission to wear their white jerseys. This obviously forces the visitors to wear their color jerseys and invariably every year some team tells LSU no. To this day I hate seeing LSU in their purple jerseys. They just don't look right. LSU should be in white every game.

The Devils got the last laugh, however, when they beat the Wildcats on their home turf to recapture the coveted Territorial Cup.

Is "we're settlers going to California but just gave up and now we're stuck in the desert cup" too long?

As I recall Oregon's colors are 'Puke' and 'Barf', right? Ugliest damn uni's in the country. Someday they'll play a game on Boise State's smurf turf, and the TV cameras will explode.

Short version: Arizona wore all red uniforms (helmet, jersey & pants). ASU wanted to wear all black uniforms. They said no, so ASU had to wear white jerseys, black pants and a black helmet instead. Huge difference apparently.

UCLA was docked timeouts so they could wear blue jerseys instead of white against USC recently

And yes, it happens in the SEC frequently.

ASU should have gone with their gold uniforms. Color-on-color games are a treat in college football (the USC-UCLA game this year was a beauty) and rivalry games should always have something special going on.

"lasting impression" on audiences indeed. Next time wear chartreuse and silver and beat them by another 30 points just to make a statement that silly football fashion decisions are silly.

White Jerseys - LSU is the only college football teams that wears white jerseys for home games. The tradition started in 1958, when Coach Paul Dietzel decided that LSU would wear white jerseys for the home games. LSU went on to win the national championship that year. Since then, LSU continued to wear white jerseys at home games. Then in 1982, new NCAA rules prohibited teams from wearing white jerseys at home. Because of this, LSU wore purple jerseys during home games from 1983 to 1994. In 1995, LSU's new coach, Gerry DiNardo, was determined to restore LSU's tradition of white home jerseys. DiNardo personally met with each member of the NCAA Football Rules Committee, lobbying LSU's case. DiNardo was successful, and LSU again began wearing white jerseys at home when the 1995 season began. In LSU's first home game with the white jerseys, unranked LSU staged a stunning 12-6 upset victory over #6 Auburn. In 2000, LSU's new coach, Nick Saban, altered the tradition of the white home jerseys: now LSU only wears white jerseys for the home opener and for home games against SEC opponents. For non-SEC home games other than the home opener, LSU wears purple jerseys at home

Wrong. Per NCAA rule: Article 3-1 "The visiting team shall wear white jerseys: however, the home team may wear white if both teams have agreed in writing before the season."

Per SEC bylaws: "In accordance with NCAA football rules, the home team shall wear dark jerseys and the visiting team shall wear white jerseys. White jerseys may be worn by the home team when the teams have agreed before the season. (The Athletics Directors have agreed to always grant a home team's request to wear white jerseys, in which case the visiting team shall wear dark jerseys.)"

There is no specific SEC rule. There's an agreement between ADs to grant the request. NCAA rule trumps SEC agreement and an AD can defer to the NCAA rule whenever they want (although it probably wouldn't go over well and would be in bad form to go against the 'gentleman's agreement')

Um. If the rules say you have to call to ask permission, it's not a right.

The last two times that Vandy has visited Baton Rouge they made LSU wear their purple jerseys. It is not a common agreement across all SEC teams. Although Vandy is the only SEC team that has refused LSU's request that I can think of.

Nobody denied the right...It's always been tradition that USC/UCLA both wear their home unis but there was a rule that the away team couldn't wear their home jersey. The penalty for doing so was you lose a timeout in the first half. UCLA wore their home jerseys anyways and Pete Carrol was awesome and burned one of his to make it even.

I just don't get the black jersey thing, especially if your school colors don't feature black. I mean, Iowa? Mizzou? Cincinnati? Those make sense, because black is one of the school's colors. But if you're Oregon (green & yellow) or Nebraska (white & red) or hell, any of the other black jersey schools, what's the point? It's just the athletic department trying to gouge boosters for more dough so they can continue to profit off of "amateur" athletics.

Or black. White being a default is by tradition only. Black is just as useful and legitimate of a background color. They're both perfect neutrals.

That is ridiculous since dark blue, dark brown, dark green and dark purple can all look black. I couldnt imagine Penn State or Michigan in their home uniforms playing an away team with "black" jerseys.

Nothing else looks "white". Even the lightest amount of pigment changes white to something pretty different.
