Post Outback Musings

For those of you who may not know, Penn State's original colors were pink and black in 1887. After playing a season of baseball in the sun, the pink faded to white. So in 1890, the student body elected to change the black to dark blue. Well, toward the end of the Outback Bowl you might have started thinking Penn State went back to their pink and black days. Take a look at some of these pictures.

I get the whole corporate sponsorship thing, but did Outback have to paint half the field red? And if you're going to do that, and you know you have two teams wearing white as one of their school colors, wouldn't you think it would be a good idea to get something better than the $5 per gallon deck paint at Home Depot? Surely somebody out there makes a decent paint that dries quickly and doesn't run.

At least the players don't have to worry about washing their uniforms. They have equipment managers to handle that and probably get new pants every other game anyway. But who is going to wash the poor drum major's uniform?

Oh crap that's gonna leave a mark!
