Hi Frank,

Another observation from Saturday that is appropriate today with the mention of Miss. State's uniform...

Can we lose the Gray uniforms...please! They're dull to look at, NOT our colors and, when heading towards the North endzone, they make seeing the WR's hard because they blend with the color of Performance Center.

The all-gray needs to go. Along with the all-red and the all-white. Go back to maroon shirt, white pants and white helmet.

I actually like the gray uniforms. I think our football uniform design is perfect from the stripes to the font to the Massachusetts state patch on the back. Wouldn't change a thing.

I find it a little annoying that MSU is wearing special uniforms in honor of the team that WE share a stadium with. Coming in like they already own the place. Hopefully Whip uses that to fire up the team.

The numbers should be larger. They look like baseball uniforms.
