Let’s be honest here, if Riley had came out and said the same thing Frost said today about the uniforms he and the idea would have been ridiculed to high heaven.

Yes, you are right.  Frost will get a lot of leeway on what he does because of who he is.

But frost isn't riley so why is that relevant?

That would have had more to do with the team than the idea, at least for me.  I like the idea and it has nothing to do with Frost being the coach.

And, if Frost is a .500 coach after 4 years, this will also be a decision that he gets ridiculed for.

I don't care if Riley made a comment about alternate uniforms or if he brought a six pack of beer to my house, he would still deserve to be ridiculed regardless, and then I would pour beer on him.

If Riley had this idea the defense would never have worn them because Riley's defense was never worth rewarding. chuckleshuffle

He probably would've had the opposite idea - when they have a bad game (allow 50+), wear the blackshirts the next game so they don't get too discouraged.

It doesn’t matter if Riley had been ridiculed, for one simple reason. Frost played against the Blackshirts and has their ear. He lived it. If he thinks it’s okay then it’s okay. He’s making the decision with that as his background. 

 

Riley would’ve been making it about something he knew almost nothing about. If it turned out to be a good idea it would’ve been something he accidentally fell into.

I’m glad it wasn’t one of those videos where all the players run around screaming like their pants are on fire, but what the hell is Maurice doing?

I’m interested in how they decide the defense had a good game. Under 300 yards, 14 points, or five yards per play would be a good threshold. Three turnovers. Maybe accomplish two of the goals and it’s a good game... only if they actually win.

 

A lot of ideas to consider.

I saw <10 points somewhere, but I don't remember if that was actually in the press conference. That seems good to me, even with a really good defense that's not happening often. A shutout is probably too much to ask, I get the sense he wants to wear these at least once a year and probably hopes for 2-3 games. UCF wasn't quite Oregon, but they had a decent variety of uniforms.

I've actually always wanted a black jersey option and I know I'm not alone. Players think black uniforms are badass, just look at trends. Everyone is fine with the offense changing and being faster and flashy as opposed to the smash mouth football of yesteryear, but not the uniforms? C'mon now!! I love the idea of honoring the defense and if that helps improvement on the field, everyone else should too, even the state of our defense since 2009 or lack of...

idk personally I think conversations about whether or not ideas are accepted based on the merit of the idea itself or based off the reputation of the person presenting it are usually pretty interesting to talk about and fun explorations.
