Of colors and T-shirts

Letter to the Editor | Monday, October 6, 2008

As mentioned in several letters last week, I too think it would be great to have a green-out or blue-out with all fans wearing the same color. However, there are only two feasible ways to do this. First, is is the responsibility of the Alumni and other fans to wear the color of the students. This year, The Shirt is blue, and most students wear either The Shirt or a knockoff of the same color. The other option (for a green-out if in a blue The Shirt year) would be to have free T-shirts handed out at the stadium when fans enter. Get a good sponsor and it might not even cost too much. There is one more thing though. There will always be those people (especially students) who think they will be really cool or funny if they wear something else to stick out. If this occurs in your section, simply notify a nearby usher that you may have smelled some kind of alcohol near that person. They will promptly be removed for most of the game regardless of their sobriety.
