    We used to squeeze the sweat out of those jerseys for drinking water during practice.

    Coach Bryant had the guys wearing those flimsy tear-away jerseys for a while. I can't remember if they made a rule change against them but some of the opposing coaches grumbled about them. If these don't hurt I don't have a problem with them.

    We used to keep vomit buckets at each position so we would have something wet to drink during our "water breaks"

    I am a traditionalist but I agree with u on this. I like the chrome look that TCU has on theirs and I think it would look incredible in crimson.

    Ha! It's a miracle that teams back then didn't all die from heat stroke but I guess we were more used to it since air conditioning wasn't common where I grew up.

    Do those colors look more Cardinal than Crimson to anyone else?
