Regardless of opinion on it being used for uniforms, what is this nonsense that green is Tulane's primary color with blue being a sometimes-used accent? That might be how it's been functionally for years, but Tulane (the university, not the sports team) has two colors: Olive Green and Sky Blue. In fact the "Green Wave" moniker didn't even come about until years of us being "The Olive and Blue." So like...have your personal preferences and make your argument about it being weird now that we're the Green Wave and all, but it's an established fact the university has two colors. It's not like there's a written code that says one is more important than the other.

...Also the length of this thread each year is directly related to the number of football losses. :coolshades:

Not only do I agree I think it’s so blatantly obvious it shouldn’t have to be said. I can’t think of a single other school that tries to invent silly arguments about how one of their colors isn’t “really” one of their colors.

And I also agree about how we all (myself fully included) are ridiculous for filling 8 pages on uniforms. Let’s hope that doesn’t mean 8 losses Or if it does, that we won’t make a ninth page
a) Nobody "tries to invent" arguments; the arguments have been around for years.
b) The arguments are not "silly"; calling them such, especially for a johnnie-come-lately, is the height of ridiculousness.

If people want our teams to wear blue and risk being identified with {shudder!} UNC, then I am but one voice, and I am not so hung up on my own opinion that I would absolutely insist that it not be done. But for the sake of propriety, if we're going to wear blue, let's change our name, because "Green Wave" would be wildly inappropriate for a team clad in something other than green. Perhaps, since "Tigers" is the most preferred mascot in college football, we could become the Tulane Tigers (unless we opted for something "banana-sluggish" and chose something like, say, "Tulane Fighting Cloud Formation").

Why is UNC associated with blue? Tar is black...

Since they are mixing things up I wouldn't mind seeing a Green Helmet - Blue shirt - Green pant look. It would true to team colors and unique.

I just don't care for the green helmet, really like the white helmet with the Green Wave logo.

This. There is really no need for any helmet other than that one.

I'd prefer the white helmets with every color combo of jersey.

love that the first response on twitter was that the green-green-green unis are a response to complaints about not wearing enough green from forum posters. Wonder who they could mean? :lol:

everything schools say about their uniform choices is a lie, from "we're doing this to support our troops" to "the recruits love this."

The blue shirts (which the players allegedly love) and the interlocking TU helmets were supposed to be this week. I wonder if this was our original homecoming look. Glad they liked the TU helmets too much to wait, but it's apparent that all green won't be avoided.

I believe the phrase "paying lip service" is spot on.

THIS!!!

Meanwhile I'm supportive of green uni color schemes as in Green Wave not as in Little John and Alan-a-Dale. This makes me hope against hope that one day LSU wears periwinkle from cap to toe.
