A few minutes ago, Baylor's Equipment Czar Jeff Barlow tweeted out tomorrow's combination, the heretofore unseen grey-green-grey.
Here is the Homecoming uni combo for your Baylor Bears. Rolling with a new combo, grey-green-grey. #SicKU pic.twitter.com/uyJn8tt3zw— Jeff Barlow (@JeffEquipBU) October 14, 2016
Personally, I think this is a fantastic combination and will enjoy seeing it in action against the Kansas Jayhawks. I also realize, however, that many might disagree, hoping for something more traditional in light of the fact that we are playing our Homecoming game. I get that, too. I just can't force myself to care that much.
As we've talked about a hundred times on this blog and elsewhere, the bottom line is that these uniforms are largely intended to satisfy two groups of people, neither of which are the Baylor alums sitting in the seats: players and potential players (recruits). That's why Baylor has gone with the black, chrome, and now grey helmets and combos, and that's why we're going to keep doing it.
