UNC Uniform Reveal

I believe the uniform is announced on Wednesdays, so what are we thinking it'll be?

It is orange effect, so I'm thinking we'll be wearing the orange helmets that we wore vs. ECU and GT last year. I'm a big fan of them.

I believe some here have posted that the rumor is ALL orange (not a fan). Any new info?

I'm hoping for orange helmet with maroon jersey and pants.

It's called Orange effect let's have some fun with it

Then they can have orange jerseys. Leave the pants and helmet out of it.

NOW 33% MORE ORANGE THAN WE SHOULD EVER HAVE IN A UNIFORM, IN HONOR OF THE ORANGE EFFECT GAME!!!

It's been working great for them. They won so many Super Bowls they had to take a break, then picked up right where they left off.

If they put the shoulder stripes on there it would look pretty good

And took them off the helmet and pants...

I believe that comment came from the Orange Effect on some folks.

If by have fun with it you mean dress like Syracuse, nope.

You do realize the two times the Hokies have worn all-Orange uniforms since 1994, they've lost, right? And one of those was 42-23 to UVA, right?

No, sir. No all orange! I don't even wear orange to Orange Effect for that very reason!

I'm hella superstitious, and even though I sometimes say the same things and always enjoy AME because of historical success in AME, there's a point where I can look at it from the outside and realize uniform color means nothing towards the outcome of the game.

i seem to remember a thursday night game against Miami in recent history where we wore AME and almost broke our "not shut out at home" streak...

Haven't the slightest clue of what you're talking about. No clue.

You know, because we always win in AME.

If it's all orange, I riot.

Am I the only one who liked our tricolor helms from last year?

No, I loved them.

Now finish up them taters; I'm gonna go fondle my sweaters.

They were okay, if a ripoff of USNA.

ALLORANGEEVERYTHING!!!!

The Dutch do take their orange very seriously.

Before the 17th century, almost all cultivated carrots were purple. Dutch growers in the late 16th century took mutant strains of the purple carrot and gradually developed them into the orange variety we have today.

I wonder if they tried to make other plants and veggies orange too?

What? Vegetables? Huh?

If our team looked like that, I'd be all for whatever they wanted (or didn't want to) wear. But, since they are not attractive, mostly blonde, European women, no all orange...

The Orange and Maroon you see, that's fighting on to victory.

Make the numbers maroon with a thin white outline, and you've got something beautiful.

EDIT: here's my MS Paint work - maroon numbers, with a white outline, make the maroon shoulder stripe thicker, and have the maroon stripe continue down the side of the jersey, and down the pants:

Shock and awesome!

We put the K in Kwality

NEVER all Orange!!!

1994: #16 UVA 42, #14 VT 23

2013: Duke 16, #13 VT 10

Actually, we've never worn all orange. We have worn orange jerseys and pants, but wore maroon helmets (1994 we only had one helmet).

We put the K in Kwality

Orange is one of our colors too and I've never understood the hate for it

How about it sucks? Chuckle now.

Where is Lawson?!

Is that a hitch cap? If so, where did you get it?

VT without orange is aTm.

We put the K in Kwality

It's called we've lost the two times we've worn all orange and seem to not play well when wearing primarily orange.

We've gotten spanked in all maroon too, the issue here is sample size not color

I don't think there is hate for it, it is just that it looks best when used in trim or small amounts. AOE would be a bit overwhelming. I also think the orange used in uniforms is never really a burnt orange and always seems too citrus orangey. I loved the chrome orange helmets from the Ohio State game and regret not buying one in the auction.

Come to Blacksburg and see what the Hokie Pokie is really all about

It is close to Halloween....they may go all pumpkin on us.

Have we ever done orange helmets maroon top and orange pants?

Built it on Clark's site but can't embed it on my phone...or at least don't know how.

Doesn't look too bad.

However all orange everything??

I don't like this look if you're going to do a Orange effect go all the way Orange

Hello all you boys and girls I'd like to take you to the inside world It's quite an irregular place to be But never fear you're safe with me. Well maybe

Orange effect is actually for the fans. YOU are supposed to wear orange.

Leonard. Duh.

I am not in support of AOE or anything, but where is it slated that this isnt for the the team as well? They went all out for the Maroon Effect, why would this exclude them?

In Soviet Russia, orange wears you!

Good god, that's hideous.

I loved the orange helmets with the maroon jerseys and pants we wore against OSU in 2015, but thought it'd look so sick with the orange and white cleats. It'd give it a nice little pop that the black cleats don't provide. That'd be the perfect, crisp way to don the orange effect IMO.

"What kind of person would throw away a perfectly good dog?"

I said orange AND white, like these.

"What kind of person would throw away a perfectly good dog?"

I've never understood why people get so hyped up about uniforms (he types after clicking on and reading this week's entire uniform thread).

Because if we wear some whacky, off the wall crap like the Boise game with black unis with weird robot like design in the numbers, we lose. It's science.

Only half /S

You will see this game, this upset and this sign next on ESPN Sportscenter. Virginia Tech 31 Miami 7

It's because it's fun to talk about and discuss ideas and opinions on a variety of different topics - this being one of them. We're all fans here and this is a fan forum. Some people care about what we wear on game day, some people don't. There's no right or wrong here. I don't think it's any different than being hyped up over anything else from a fan's perspective.

"What kind of person would throw away a perfectly good dog?"

Orange helmets are now confirmed for the game. Same ones from last year's ECU game.

We should dress up like a classroom, then no UNC player will get close enough to tackle us

They could just leave their paragraph on the sidelines and go home.

Paint the endzones to look like a classroom

I like a new shiny lid and the old logos and a new uni/color combo occasionally and I don't want to sound like the "get off my lawn" guy, but....

1. Orange is an accent color albeit important since our color combination is the only one among colleges.
2. When teams come into our house, we want them to see the unis they've watched on TV and think "Oh, hell".
3. A new uni once a year is okay against the D 1A or whatever they call them now.
4. The big boys typically wear the brand, i.e., the traditional unis....see ALA, OSU, USC, Texas, Mich, GA, LSU, etc.
5. MAROON separates us from the other orange teams such as Clemson and Syracuse, and more importantly separates us from other schools that have orange as an accent color such as miami and most importantly the boohoos.
6. When highlights flash accross the TV, our traditional, distinctive unis are more easily recognized.
7. No one had more unis and combinations than Oregon and really began all this and their time has come and gone.

I'm tired now and need a nap.

Just don't send the young whippersnappers over to my lawn!

@VTimHokie85

Since no one can come to a conclusion we should just split the jersey down the middle... left half all orange, right half AME. Like a Hokie-themed Harvey Dent.

Here lies It's a Stroman Jersey I Swear, surpassed in life by no one because he intercepted it.

They're sick

Those will look great if we are wearing all white. I would go all white and orange high socks. I am not a fan of the white helmet with maroon (or orange) jersey.

@VTimHokie85

Looks pretty good to me...

(I know the new helmet has an orange VT)

Agreed, I love a white helmet.

This weeks is a slight improvement on the Belk Bowl lid, to me. I like the orange middle stripe better with an orange VT as opposed to this orange stripe with a maroon VT.

If we wear an orange jersey and white pants, I will be pleased. A maroon jersey would be find as well. Please no orange/maroon pants/jersey combo action.

GROSS!

@VTimHokie85

1 vote to do away with Orange Effect and Orange Primary Uniforms altogether.

Base uniform:
Maroon Primary (all maroon everything), Orange accent
Away:
Maroon Primary, Orange accent, White secondary
Alternative 1:
Black Uni
Alternative 2:
Gray Hokie Stone

All Orange is too close to Klempson and Syracuse. And they do Orange MUCH better.

so maroon is primary at home and on the road.......huh?

Double post

Yes. It's the NCAA rules mean nothing

Deciding the uniform color combo is like deciding where to have brunch.

Are you suggesting that we are playing in literal fire. The unburnt team?

Another white bronco? The first one didn't go too far.

Now I'm very interested.

How confident are you that we are using this template next year? Personally I like em and would love to see a maroon version. Although I think I'd prefer maroon with an orange collar.

Ugh....this doesnt excite me. Im going to put this gif here now so I will know where to find it later when the official announcement happens.

Kinda makes sense. Big recruiting weekend for #NC2VT. Recruits like the different uniforms (remember Hunter doing the big reveal on Twitter for the Battle at Bristol uni's?). Not surprised we're going to see a different uniform.

Makes me speculate that maybe KJ or another big recruit might reveal this one?

The camera icon/video leads me to believe there will be some sort of documentary of the past 125 years of VT Football.

Bills are off this weekend so I am wondering if maybe Tyrod and LT3 will unveil the jerseys?

First I have thought of it, but Tyrod would be a good pick for the Lets Go Hokies "tradition"

EDIT: Cant read a calendar

They were off last weekend..

Bill Roth was dropping some curious hints on Twitter the other day... I wonder if he'll be calling an upcoming game in some form?

Based on some twitter sleuthing, the BC uniform reveal was at 6:46pm. Do with that what you will.

7:30 I believe as per HokiesFB twitter account

They kinda look like our b-ball jerseys.

And they kinda look like Clemson's orange jerseys.

They look like Clemson in the sense that they are orange without shoulder stripes. But Clemson doesn't have a word mark above the numbers, they have a different number font, and they have have their paw print logo on the
shoulder tops.

Can we get maroon and white versions for the rest of the year?

Let's take a moment and appreciate no shoulder stripes!

Can't wait till the maroon version comes out!

Yes,that's the Hokie Bird riding a camel. Why'd you ask?

No, it's just the way 5 is drawn. 5 has a longer top than 2.

I wish the HOKIES was ringed in maroon like the numbers. And I wish the font wasn't so... "futuristic"? Looks like it'll need a refresh in about 3 years. The chisel-tip bevel thing on the H and the E reminds me of Star Trek or something...

Aside from that, I love the layout, I love the no stripes, love the same-color collar.

You're about a year late on that discussion. It's the same athletic font we've been using since last year.

Believe me, I'm not late on this discussion. I've disliked it since the day it rolled out. It's just the first time it's shown up on the front of our football jerseys.
