Full uniform for Saturday Agaist ODU

All white, as expected, with the new helmets. Nothing super surprising.

They use the term "reveal" rather loosely. More like extended teaser unless I am missing something.

I feel like these close up "reveals" are a set up for something.

My guess is that those sneaky equipment managers will pull a fast one on us at some point this season, using the close ups as a smoke screen.

The conspiracy theorist in me says the shoulders are red and blue with live bald eagles mounted on them.

I know it's a white out (which I don't like anyway) and I was expecting it...but why do we wear our away jerseys for a home game? We only get 6 chances to wear "our" colors. Why give one away?

We put the K in Kwality

This times a million. And now its 2 home games of white. Why? What's the point of not wearing our home jerseys? If you want military appreciation then make it with our primary colors.

Never like white helmets and I especially never like full white uniforms. Boring and nothing VT about them.

We should get rid of the white out altogether. It always looks terrible when we do it because half the stadium wears maroon or orange anyway.

I think the last two times I went, it rained, so it was Rainbow Effect anyway with all of the ponchos.

That, and trying to shoehorn it in with Military Appreciation and Corps Homecoming just isn't a great idea. Especially since the Corps alumni marching on the field are wearing a maroon polo and khakis, and no one's changing when they get in the stands.

I've always thought it was hilarious that it rains on White Out games. It's like the University is scheduling an annual wet t shirt contest.

Perhaps this is a way to boost attendance?

Take the shortest route to the ball and arrive in bad humor.

You're the only ones that I can talk to about this, you guys.

I definitely don't trust Thierry Henry in this situation. He's been known to illegally touch things for an easy score

I don't own a single white VT anything.

Agree! I think the White Effect is stupid. It is a PSU thing. I don't mind the Maroon and Orange Effects, but drop the White Effect.

I love seeing our team in maroon at home, and while I thought the Hokie Stone look was cool against Delaware, we have not worn maroon at home yet. HOPEFULLY all maroon will be worn against Clemson.

It had damn well better.

I was all on board this train too (and I still am really). But the fact of the matter is that recruits like to have all these different looks and jersey combos. Unless your team is Alabama or Penn State, they will probably where multiple different looks throughout the year. I don't think its changing anytime soon. I've stopped worrying about it.

I mean heck, we've worn 4 different combos in 4 games this year.

Fully understanding of recruits liking jersey alternatives. But do not like white jerseys ever. Maroon helmets, tops and white pants i am good with. Just not all white and preferably not white helmets.

Most important, no white at home, ever. If you want to do alternate jersey for home game do black or gray. The original school colors and both will, and do, look badass with maroon and orange.

Home jersey color ranking:

1) Maroon
2) Maroon
3) Maroon
4) Orange
5) White
T9) Black
T9) Grey

1) Maroon
2) Maroon
3) Maroon
4) Black
5) Orange
9) Grey
100) White

FTFY

Orange is still too high.

Agreed. I wouldn't even buy the Orange Effect t-shirt or any orange shirt for that matter during my time in Blacksburg.

Random 1: I'm assuming Klempson fans will be wearing mostly purple next week (?), but there will probably be a lot of orange mixed in there, which will look pretty cool for us zoomed out.

Random 2: Even though I don't like the orange, I thought it'd be cool to do an orange/maroon stripeout game similar to PSU's navy/white stripeout. That could be pretty sweet looking?

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

I can agree to this too

Still not quite there ....

1) Maroon
2) Maroon
3) Maroon
4) Black
5) Orange
9) Grey
10) Being hit by a car
100) White

This guy gets it

Except for the orange part.

You misspelled bus

We put the K in Kwality

For home games?

1) Maroon, of some variation (with orange piping, plain maroon, etc...)

There should be no other option.

Warning- Filter lost.

"Look at this... This is just spectacular.... These people are losing their minds"

FREE THE "STICK IT IN" CHANT!!!

Orange is way too high.

I hear you, but we do get to wear maroon at GT most of the time.

No, I *don't* want to go to the SEC. Why do you ask?

We don't love dem Hoos.

White Effect sounds stupid. White Out is better.

Can't argue with that, but I absolutely love the shirts this year.

Did you not like the one with bubble letters and books on it?

Haha I would have to see it. I don't recall that one.

Ohhh. That's...cool..

At least it (barely) isn't Comic Sans?

I posted on the game thread cam 4 president lol. Definitely grabbing one before the seaseon ends

Hokie Love!

Hopefully I can buy one Saturday, I don't own a white Tech shirt never have don't like them.

Wet stuff on the red stuff.

I like the all white look of these.

Do you think there is any other option for Terror Dome 2.0 other than ALLMAROONEVERYTHING?

OK, I agree with all of the above posters that going all-white for a home game is less than ideal. However I'm all for us rocking the full Stormtroopers on more away games. I think the all-white is clean.

This will always be my favorite all-white uniform: 2009 Pro Combat Jersey

GOOD GUYS WEAR WHITE

Why are you further proving his point?

Boss. I remember I was walking to class and there was a big crowd in between Squires and the GLC. I wandered over and they had a stage set up and Nike was doing the jersey reveal. Danny Coale and Tyrod were up there wearing the new white Pro Combats. They looked tough then and still do now.

By FAR the best all-white uni combo.

Dated. Incredibly dated.

C'mon man!

This vvvvvv

Looks more cutting edge than this vvvvv

Well, 34 is cutting there.

At the risk of being seen as the most diabolical hater this side of the Mississippi, I must say that I really do not like these unis (I guess mostly the helmets) at all. Any time we (or anybody else) do a play on the "American flag" texture, it just looks cheap and forced.

Wish we'd just rock maroon and orange.

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

You are not alone.

Isn't this game after Labor Day?

Why do these pics always make me feel like the girl who would flirt but not give you any play, yet who would do Southern Exposure amateur night?

...what an oddly specific comparison

LOL...Southern Exposure amateur night...

We should have a blackout game too...those Jersey's are always good.

Not those. Stripes not working right. Maroon is off.

HOME Unis:
1) All Maroon
2) Maroon helmet, maroon jersey, white pants
3) Orange helmet from last year, maroon jersey, maroon pants (I liked this look vs ECU last year)

Away Unis:
1) maroon helmet, white jersey, white pants
2) maroon helmet, white jersey, maroon pants
3) All white with white helmet from last year's bowl game (haven't seen this yet but I'd like to see it)

Helmet uni combo looks retarded. Just my opinion but the closeups on tv look horrid.
