Look at Michigan - their football unis are blue and almost a "neon yellow." Not consistent with their basketball, hockey, or other sports.
Ok so I did a search and couldn't find it so I went to Cyclones.com to look around. The link is a letter from JP to all Cyclone fans reagarding the color changes back in 2008.

There's also a video posted on the Facebook page of them in the new uniforms. The cardinal looks darker in the video than in the photo, so who knows? Guess we'll have to wait until we see them in Hilton.
The whole color matching thing has to be a nightmare for Athletics. Getting new pep band jerseys took over a year longer than expected because the companies weren't sending any color samples that Athletics approved of. Even the final ones still seem off. I'd imagine it's even worse for basketball and volleyball uniforms trying to get it right since their exposure is so much higher than us lowly band kids. :cute:
Agreed, they look better in the short video clip.
I was sort of hoping for the sand volleyball look. I really would not care to much if the color wasn't quite right.
If we go sexist we need to go Australian! Below is Lauren Jackson in her Seattle Storm uniform and Lauren in her Opals uniform. The Opals got silver in the 2008 games but I thought they won gold for their uniforms although some folks just hated on the uniforms.
Okay, just kidding around. I would watch our gals even if they wore old gym sweats. They have a great team and it should be another fun season for us fans.
I don't think the color is that bad. It is better than the Minnesota unis we used to wear. I compared the official colors with the average color of the uniform and they're not too far away. There is surely some color loss between the lighting and compression of the photo, but I just used what I had.
Not so good. Colors are good but typically Vball are TIGHT. These not so much.
(Then search through these images for a treat for WBB fans. http://bbs.hoopchina.com/1128985-4.html )
does fries come with that?
You guys really need to find something new in your lives if your ******** about the color of vball uniforms. They are pretty damn close, so give it a rest. They are a lot better than last two years uniforms.
Mens basketball actually had Nike come out and fit the guys personally..according to GMAC.
