I like the new unis and wish the blue helmets had been allowed, and to all the old folks who don't:

Players and recruits do not want to look like they are from 1960. We really have had no identity since those days anyway and with a new scheme, totally new unis can help mkae that identity.

Coach Dodd was an up to date coach for his era, why don't you all follow his example?
Yesterday is gone and the future is in recruits and players and young fans and students, most of whom will like the fact that we don't look garish and outdated.

But the AD told me not to put it up so I am not going to push it. You guys can put it on from other blogs or I can mail it to you

Personally, I don't care if we wear polka dots, as long as we beat U(sic)GA next year!

PostSubject: Blue Helmet   Thu Mar 27, 2008 3:55 pm

I've got to know, what did it look like? I know there is a high school in Georgia that has a "buzz" icon on their helmet. I always thought that would be pretty cool. Granted, I like the old school looking "Buzz", the one that looked more like a mosquito. It would be interesting to work that into the uniform somehow. Hell, I think having the wreck somewhere on the uniform might be cool. Could be something similar to the way Purdue had the train icon on the front of their unis awhile back (if memory serves).

When do the fans find out officially about the uniforms? I know this is a silly topic, but when you consider the merchandise tie ins, and trying to get new fans, uniforms are something that matters. Itís probably the only reason the Raiders are still popular (assuming none of our guys get drafted there, otherwise they are suddenly relevant again). Anyone that says uniforms arenít important need only look at before and after pictures of Tampa Bay. Nuff said.

Okay here goes my kick on the unis.I like the old style that yall used as away unifoms.I like traditional views and although I agree the team makes some concessions to what they play in just remmeber what GOL said when he became head coach.He said white tops and gold pants was tech football.I agree,icould go on and on about tradition saying the United States has not changed it flag or that LSU and Penn State and OSU and Auburn and Tenn and others feel you follow the tradition as a youngplayer rather than the tradition following you.Yall looked a hell of a lot better in the visiting unis than you did in Vandy yellow.I even like the ACC championship unis butnot the Vandy rags.All I can say is when I grew up and got a ticket to see Tech play they looked classy with Dodd in a expensive suit,coaching shoes and a Hat and tech in white tops with blue numbers and gold pants.We looked classy and played likeit.Like I have said on other blogs,if we win we can play naked.So what we have is young folks wanting VT unis and retro ones and middle aged and older wanting the old ones.Hope we compromise.Thanks for listening to ranting from an old man.

Still the same uni's.

From what I understand white tops and gold pants will be the home uni with the blue jersey's sneaking in over time....

Sounds like the best plan to me.
