You know, that little ba$tard on the helmet is awesome.

Not much of an AZ fan, but I like the Wildcats use of the red, white, and blue.

Do you think the Longhorns went with that shade to distinguish themselves from another orange clad UT that happens to be in Knoxville?

It's from Wiki so don't know how accurate it is but:

Quote:
The Board of Regents held an election in that year to decide the team colors. Students, faculty, staff and alumni were asked vote. 1,111 votes were cast, with 562 in favor of orange and white. Orange and maroon received 310, royal blue 203, crimson 10, and royal blue and crimson 11. For the next thirty years, Longhorn teams wore bright orange on their uniforms, which faded to yellow by the end of the season. By the 1920s, other teams sometimes called the Longhorn squads "yellow bellies," a term that didn't sit well with the athletic department. In 1928, UT football coach Clyde Littlefield ordered uniforms in a darker shade of orange that wouldn't fade, which would later become known as "burnt orange" or "Texas orange."
Still I like our Burnt Orange.

The best football uniforms in college are Penn State's. Nothing fancy, they scream tough hardcore football. Hell, my high school practice uniform in the 1970's was fancier.
