Serving the students and the University community since 1893

Navy blue uniforms for football are abhorrent


Those navy blue football uniforms suck. There is no other way to say it. They do not imbue more testosterone; rather, they confuse the public and insult every true Tar Heel.

Speaking for all whose blood runs Carolina blue, there is no way that any shade of a darker blue is welcome nor necessary.

Taking UNC football to the next level should not require the sacrifice of traditions that have served this University since 1795. The excellence and virtue of Di’s Carolina blue and the truth and honor of Phi’s white have endowed the University with its distinctive colors on any field of competition.

If we must have a third color to satisfy corporate forces, then it should be money green.
