    It's red. And blue. It's not like maroon and red, or blue and sky blue, or white and cream, or purple and mauve. Red. And. Blue.

    Pretty different if you ask me.

      This is the way a lot of soccer leagues seem to operate when it comes to jersey colors, and I think it works quite well for them. I think the Dallas Cowboys also seem to operate under this rule as well.
      The Cowboys usually use their option as home team to wear their whites (as opposed to the colors that most home teams in the NFL wear). That is why you almost never see them in their blues, unless they are visiting and the other home team chooses whites (I believe that Washington and Miami are the others that sometimes wear whites at home).

      I would be careful what you wish for regarding European soccer uniforms, many of the second jerseys they use are just plain godawful ugly.

        Miami started it because their whites are cooler than their blue jerseys in the sun. Dallas copied it for the same reason. Washington does it only against Dallas as a psychological tool. Years ago, GB played Tampa in a blizzard. Vinny Testaverde could not see his receivers in their white road jerseys. The next week, Miami flew into GB with both sets of uniforms. They were ready to pay the NFL fine for wrong uniforms if it meant winning the game.

          The Euro soccer way of doing it, however, isn't to have home and away jerseys, but rather primary and secondary jerseys. You wear your primary colors all the time, unless there's a conflict - and then the road team has to wear their secondary colors.

          So, if you just applied that to the usual American tradition of having a colored shirt and a white shirt, there's no problem - have both teams play in colors if there are no conflicts, or have the road team wear white if there are. Simple.

          For this game, I liked both teams in the colors, but I also agree that Michigan might have been better off in Maize.

            I'm thinking of the team w/Morrison, Botterill et al. jesus they could fly. BU was good but not great. Michigan was great that year. One of those teams that you wonder how they lost more than 1-2 games all season....

            However, defeating Nodak would have been tough. That (again IIRC) would have been the Nodak team w/Jason Blake, Hoogsteens, Panzers and I think Commodore. **** tough team

            that would have been a hell of a tilt to watch
            That was a pretty awesome FF to watch. For the title game, we were sitting next to a couple of Michigan fans that would religiously yell "let's go Blue!" every time the crowd would be yelling "let's go Sioux!"

            Entertaining to say the least. Some people refuse to give up on their team!

              The Michigan fans at the CRC had a lot of spirit too. They cheered for their team all game long and were very vocal.
              I definetly give them props for that.
