Alternate Uniforms


I had something on my mind today while watching several games waiting on the late kickoff, and that is the subject of alternate uniforms.  When I first noticed alternate uniforms, they were basically pants that were in use by those teams, but not necessarily when they wore usually worn, like Nebraska's red pants in the 80's, or OSU's mix and match orange pants home and away.  However, it seems like if alternate uniforms are the way of life in this day and age of college football. I know that in 1995 we had those dreadful stripes when Schnellenberger tried to make us look more like Louisville.  We also had the tributes to the 50s in recent years, which honestly I hope ends soon. I like OU as they are. No changes to the uniforms. I hated when Stoops took the names off the back of the jerseys in 2007.  But some schools, namely Oregon, seem to be wearing a different color helmet, jersey, and pants for every game. What is the reasoning behind this anyway?   It no longer seems to be a "luck" thing. Unfortunately, I am afraid that alternate uniforms even for OU might be inevitable for OU in the future. I hope not.
