Ranking the football uniforms: No. 2

You will probably disagree but I thought the black-white-orange combo at ISU was one of the two best ever.

Uniform No. 2: Black-White-Orange
Worn: at Iowa St.
Result: I can’t even type it

Look, I get it.

I get that some of you will never be able to look at these uniforms again without feeling some sort mixture of disappointment/sadness/pain.

I get that people remember the extreme details of some of the most traumatic moments of their lives and in terms of sports trauma, it doesn’t get much worse than this night.

But that doesn’t take away from the fact that this was one of the best combinations Oklahoma State has ever worn — I actually had it No. 1 for a while (Carson and I discuss this on the uniform podcast Wednesday) but changed it at the last minute.

I think the orange pants are my single favorite uniform piece OSU wears. Pair it with the orange tops and they’re all kind of bad but with basically anything else they’re absolutely spectacular.

You guys already know my feelings on the white jerseys and the black lids just top it off (literally). I guess I just don’t really see how (stepping outside of everything that happened that night) you can look at these and say “nah, I’m good.”

If you hate gray, you should like these. If you love orange, you should like these. If you think the black lid is ferocious and great, you should like these.

There’s something for everybody, really.

I’m just bummed that we’ll never wear them again.
