Ring in the New, Bring Out the Blue

By Jay Skipworth

It’s the dawn of a new era on the Plains, ladies and gents. We are a mere few day away from getting a full view of what new Head Coach Gene Chizik and company have prepared Auburn for since arriving in December 2008.

New coaches – Check.

New offense- Check, sort of.

New quarterback – Sort of, again.

New season – War Eagle! Check! (Finally!)

That’s right. I’m talking about apparel. Don’t trash the orange; it’ll have it’s moment later. But for opening night against Louisiana Tech, let’s go all Blue.

If you are a sunshine pumper, call it the Blue Out to Blow Out La. Tech.
If not, think of this as an opportunity to look uber cool in the stands.

I admit – I’m not a fan of the all orange look. Never was. But that fierce looking Blue gets even my cynical bones rattling with excitement.
Also, when’s the last time you saw a “sea of orange” except for Kool-Aid land?

And what lives in the orange sea? Orange seahorses? Not very ferocious.
However, we all know what lives in the Deep Blue Sea (besides Samuel L.

Forget about “The Jungle.” Let’s make Jordan Hare the Deep Blue Sea of the SEC.

So, this is a call to arms, shirts, shorts, pants, and socks. Bring out the Blue on September 5.

Who’s with me?
