    I love the Blackouts and the 2007 Auburn game is still one of the coolest moments that I have had in Sanford. However, I do not think that this is the game for the Blackout. I would save it for later in the season against Kentucky.

    Save it for later in the season after we get our Offense gel working better. I fear the blackout puts pressure on the boys, they get all jittery and over hype the moment in a bad way. too early in the season for that. Need to treat this like a normal game and have focus. this is a big game, dont need to make it feel any bigger.

    Blackouts can also motivate the opponent by making them feel that we need something extra to beat them. OUR TEAM IS GOOD ENOUGH

    Plus, we have a .750 winning percentage in black jerseys which is much higher than when we wear red.

    I was there for the Auburn black jersey
    and the Alabama black jersey. The Alabama experience lingers becuase it was last. The Auburn black jersey was a suprise.

    That is the most valid point in all of this. The odds are in our favor wearing black.

    Really. How many times have we worn black jerseys and what games?

    We have won 73.77% in the red* jerseys since 2007.

    *this does not include the red Power Ranger uniforms worn against Boise St. in 2011.

    They have been worn 4 times 2007/8 versus Auburn and Hawaii (both wins) then again in 2008 which was a humiliating defeat by Alabama. The fourth time was Last year versus La-Lafayette. This is hardly worth saying that 75% beating 74% gives us a better chance. That's all - not statistically relevant.

    Sorry Joel I knew the answer. It was 67% before the game last year. We have beaten Auburn and lost to Alabama since then so just saying the color of the jerseys are not relevant. I know you know that.

    The small amount of social media I follow was calling for a fan blackout, not necessarily jerseys. That's why I voted yes.

    No, I believe blackout is the way to help the opponent party to feel own self strong.

  • PTDawgPTDawg Posts: 2,169 ✭✭✭✭✭ Graduate

    Don't know if it was mcgarity or smart but one of them said last year that the plan was to wear the black jerseys once a season, probably late in the year (like we did last season with lafeyette)

  • KingoftheSouthKingoftheSouth Posts: 570 ✭✭✭✭ Senior

    I would go with option 3) blackouts are awesome but this is not a big enough game to use them.

  • Denmen185Denmen185 Posts: 6,451 ✭✭✭✭✭ Graduate

    I don't think that we "Black Out" at all this year unless the UK game is meaningless or maybe the Bowl Game unless it's a play-off game. The schedule doesn't include a late game similar to last year's

    I like blackouts, but don't need one this weekend. There is already enough hype with the battle of ranked unbeatens and it being the SEC opener. I would rather them save it for later in the year, perhaps another big recruit weekend, such as the South Carolina game.
