I remember hearing this as well but I think it was assumed this would be a prime time night game - white out @ G-tech with coastal division title implications. I'm putting my money on white jerseys/orange pants!

ColoradoCane

Didn't we wear all whites in Atlanta two years ago when they manhandled us?

solarcane

CG, LMAO!!

I'll take 16 asian girls on one bike versus a guy rubbing his nutsak on a horses back 100 out of 100 times lol!!

solarcane

drew,
I think GT is one of only a couple teams in the country that wear their white jersey for their home jersey.
If that's still true we will be in a dark jersey.

I'll try and ask the GT fans around here if GT always wears white at home though

The Team That Can Never Play a Color-vs.-Color Game
By Paul Lukas, on July 19th, 2010

As you probably know, Georgia Tech always wears white at home. And since almost everyone else wears color at home, that basically means Tech wears white for every game. They also seem to be one of those teams that revise their uniforms on a near-annual basis (I believe that’s actually part of their deal with Russell Athletic — a new design every season), so each year they trot out two new jerseys, one of which never gets worn.

Russell has come up with a novel solution to that problem this year: The Yellow Jackets will have two different white jerseys — one for home and one for the road. As you can see, the only difference between the two designs is that the home jersey has a gold collar, cuffs, and side panels, while those elements are navy on the road version.

Georgia Tech isn’t the first team to have two white jerseys, but I’m pretty sure this is the first time a team has had separate white designs with specific home and road designations. It’s a merchandising boondoggle, natch — a way for Russell to market two jerseys that are in regular on-field rotation instead of one.

Such distinctions notwithstanding, is that a miserable design or what? If forced to choose, I’d go with the road version, but it’s a train wreck either way. Yeesh

solarcane

I think if Randy refused to the NCAA about wearing a dark jersey on the road maybe GT has to wear their gold or navy blue jerseys
heck I dunno lol!

ColoradoCane

I believe you are correct solar:

We wore green tops two years ago for that ass shellacking.

I saw La Nuba here in Orlando and it's amazing what they can do.

Posted by: raizecane | November 10, 2010 at 01:08 PM

I've seen it three times and am ALWAYS amazed.

solarcane

colorado,
great minds lol!

The only reason I thought they always wear white at home is every GT jersey i see on fans here in Georgia is the white one with gold collar
I think GT in gold helmets, navy blue jerseys and white pants looks better myself.
It looks more Notre Damish when we are playing them.

CGNC

Solarcane - Viva France! LMAO. Hey, that guy can flat out ride! And the horse is honest - those fences look 5-6 feet - talk about trusting your partner.

UMike - no I am not. The only game I will go to this year would be the ACC title game (cough cough) if they make it :-D

DallasTX Cane

DTX - worse team ... the Dallas Cowboys of 2010 or the 2007 Miami Hurricanes


Kitna making $4 Million to me is a complete joke. Why is your back up making that kind of money? Even as starter before he came to Dallas, he'd only thrown more TDs than INTs in a season 3 times - from 1997-2010

Also, what in the hell is wrong with their Defense? 2nd to last in the NFL in PPG given up (232)

I don't mind it too much though - seeing both the Longhorns and Cowboys struggling this year makes me turn my frown upside down on bad days ... esp. seeing a Cane (Sam Shields) grab an INT away from Miles Austin in their last game

Posted by: Six | November 10, 2010 at 02:43 PM

LOL. Toss up Six. I'll say this year's 'Boys tho. They're "professionals" right? Plus, no one on the Cowboys can tackle like Bosher! That was a real pretty play Shields made. Without caring at all about any debatable implications to the CANES coaching situation, I'd like to say it's really cool to see Sam Shields not only playing in the league but excelling. That guy truly turned it around and went from dead end to NFL starter. Plus, a few more plays like the one U reference and he'll be in the Pro Bowl some day. I'm happy for him.

DallasTX Cane

D Linemen? JB no doubt.

Now, I don't remember The Stork so won't speak to his ability comparative to the other greats, but he is obviously top 5 or better. Warren Sapp turned out to have a better pro career than Russell Maryland and was probably the better college player also. Russell is more of a personal fav for me tho.

Cortez Kennedy though is probably right there with Jerome and perhaps should be considered a snails azz width above because he was blessed to play a full pro career. Too bad he played in Seattle. If he'd spent his time (the 90s) playing in San Fran or Dallas or Green Bay or Denver or...anywhere other than Seattle, he'd probably have been a 2nd ballot HOF'er.

j.w.

Sapp is a tough one for me to judge- loved what he did on the field, but always thought he let us down with the positive test and his conditioning could have been better. The the cover-up that followed contributed to the punishment UM received.

ah i never realized it was a throwback, I am a big fan of alternate jerseys though...like remember back in maybe 2005 (i think gore was the RB) we had an off green jersey with gold pants and the helmets were gold with the actual hurricane sign - the boating sign for a hurricane

Although he wasn't one of the all-time greats, I was always a fan of Baratka Atkins. Very versatile D Lineman. Random thought.

Dang... there goes my longshot LOF defensive pick...

• DT Josh Holmes is expected to miss the remainder of the season. Holmes is a fifth-year senior. Holmes had four tackles and one sack in five games this year.

CGNC, My uncle asked me to break one of his Quarter horses out of the starting gates at his horse farm when I was 16. The horse was OJ's Magic who wound up horse of the year at Pompano later. I was wearing coochie cutters ( jort jorts) because we had just come from the swimming hole, and needless to say by the time Me and Magic had gone a quarter mile half of my boyz were on one side of them jorts and half on the other side and I was one hurtin' little jockey.

Go Canes!!!
