I remember as a youngster watching the Pitt with those Mustard Yellow and Blue uniforms and thinking how hideous they was. But at that time I was just a kiddo not realizing that those uni’s was the identity of the program since the 70’s.
There are winds of change hovering the football program indeed. Pitt has a new Head Coach in Paul Chryst(former OC at Wisconsin), and 2013 or 14 Pitt will be playing its first season in the Atlantic Coast Conference.
So even I must admit that the uni’s, that I really didn’t like as a kid, needs to return.
I’m not totally sure the old color scheme needs to return, but I think the “Script” with the current Gold and Blue would be more than appropriate.
These uni’s means so much to the fan base and they are a direct link to the “Glory Years” of the Late 70’s-Early 80’s.
Its time to bring them back, and this is pretty much a “now or never” type scenario.
Do what is right Steve Pederson, you are the Athletic Director. You are aware of these sweeping changes.
