troy game color

Ive herd some talk that we do a black out for the troy game not a huge fan of it black isn't a school color and MTS is doing it against us a week before. I think it should be a navy blue out i say navy blue because the blue that in fau apparel  is a navy blue people say if we just say blue out we will get 1000 shades of blue out there and it will look dumb but if we just say NAVY BLUE OUT and give out t-shirts the week leading up to the game i think it could work well. I also wouldn't mid a white out the only thing about white is if someone doesn't where white they stick out like a sore thumb. What do you guys think?

I think some people from the board are working on it and last I heard they were looking to do a whiteout.

That could be cool if it's done well… the problem for us has not been getting all the students to wear one color… it's getting everyone else in the stadium to wear it. The older folk, for instance, will wear anything from yellow to purple. I imagine that's partly because Athletics doesn't notify them ahead of time. Hopefully they will this year as a quarter flyer or something in your envelope with season tickets (or regular tickets).

Lik I said, it can look great if you do it well… see Penn State doing it the right way here:

Re: troy game color

I prefer white out...less room for error, and if all else fails people can go to walmart and buy cheap white shirts by the gross and just hand them out to people who didnt know

Re: troy game color

I just dont want to look like a copy cat.

The MUTS have had this planned for months for our game, Now were gonna do the same thing a week later. BOTH games are on ESPN (or one of the incarnations) so for 2 weeks in a row there will be "Black" outs?

<sigh>

I have come here to chew bubble gum and kick @$$ and I'm out of bubble gum.

I say go with white and hand out shirts as you enter the stadium.

Whiteouts more likely, but yeah I see what you're saying. A lot of teams do whiteouts though.
