Worst/Best

I think we had about 5 different designs during the Fedora years.......still prefer the 92-99 design the best. The feather one gets the worst design that looked like it came straight out of a HP home printer cartridge.

These helmets look tiny. No wonder we get our asses kicked so much.

I like Curly's plain black helmets and jerseys with no names. Let the shiftless punks earn the extras.

Yeah, use the blank ones and let kids color designs on them. Might as well scribble on their jersey's too.

Re: Worst/Best

There was a period of time when some really good USM dark humor (like that helmet) got created. It was after it was clear we were 100% screwed, but before people stopped caring altogether. Or maybe it was when the smart people realized we were 100% screwed but not the naive people. So the smart people made helmets and the naive people made up stories about the Big XII.

LOL .... that is correct.  During one of the last re-alignments, there were rumors that we were being courted by the BIG XII.... lol

Re: Worst/Best

There was a period of about 10 years during which USM had a lot of home game vs. the Big XII.  Start with the A&M game (1998?) and then consider there were home games vs. OK State, Kansas, and Nebraska.

So,  had USM made the necessary investments and decisions during that time, maybe we could have at least flirted with the possibility of the Big XII farting in our general direction, e.g. instead of TCU. But that's the opposite of what "wee" did so "wee" got the opposite result.

although it would never happen, i thought that there was some minimum seating requirement the big xii had for stadiums ( ~40K?)
and we did not meet that.... not to mention tv 'market' and all other bs reasons

i have been to a few games at tcu and their stadium can't be more than ~45-50K

That was one of the main things I was thinking about with my "invest" comment.

I can't help with the TV thing except to say that it's been pretty well discredited- now.

As bad as I don't want to beat the dead horse again..... Since UConn is leaving the AAC, are they staying at 11 football teams?
