Why does the white out have to be official?

I have made my opinion before. Namely, that I am extremely apathetic towards the concept of the white out. I've always agreed with RUTS in that Penn State is trying to force things too much. The 2005 Ohio State game cannot happen again. I'm not sure I want it to happen again because I don't want to sit through four seasons of total horse malarkey just to get a great crowd.

I'll make it quick: why do we have to announce certain games to be your designated wear white game? Is this really necessary? Isn't it already established? Can the students be allowed to do their own thing, i.e. wear white whenever they want to? 

Personally, I feel we need to allow spontaneity and when I last attended a game at PSU ('08 Michigan State), it felt different from a game in '05 I attended. I really, honestly believe the whole atmosphere was not only frozen solid, but not as "intense" or as spontaneous. The cold did not help, and neither did the music.

I'll admit it's possible the "game" against Iowa last year has soured me to the whole concept. It's also possible I hate the "white house" name and the "great show" name because they remind me of corporate "trying too hard" people. I'm almost thinking about attending your official white out game this year with a blue shirt and my brand new "Suck it" tattoo.

In closing, I ask of anyone willing to tell me why, in your opinion: a) We need to have an official white out game and b) Why the whole concept isn't played out. Thanks!

(By the by, if you try to defend the tie dye crap, I'll post pictures from Horse and Buggy.)
