BYU football: CBS Sports reacts to Cougars' 'blackout' uniforms
Our take: Since BYU announced that the team would be wearing all-black uniforms against Oregon State on Oct. 13, fans and bloggers have shown different reactions to the news. CBS Sports blogger Jerry Hinnen says BYU's design is solid, but that doesn't always mean success:
...If you're going to do a blackout, that's the way to go about it — the similarity between these uniforms and BYU's normal look (and, yes, that sharp black helmet) keeps them from being quite as silly as a lot of (maybe most) black alternates are. Planning them as a one-off keeps the cheese factor low, too.
Still, it's been done, and there's the possibility that the football gods are getting tired of the uniform pranks. The last time we wrote about alternate black uniforms, Western Michigan was getting ALL-CAPS PUMPED for its game against Toledo ... and then had to announce the same week that quarterback Alex Carder would miss the game with a hand injury. The Broncos lost 37-17.
