N.C. State Shrewdly Out-Whites Georgia Tech White-Out

Tech went through all the trouble of organizing a white-out for this year's conference opener against N.C. State, as they'd done to reasonable success for last year's conference opener against Clemson, only to see the Wolfpack crash the party.

As the visiting team, State gets to pick which jerseys they'll wear. They chose white, ensuring at least a few of Tech's less seasoned attendees will momentarily root for the wrong team.

White isn't the Wolfpack's preferred color, either. They've worn red at home twice this year, including an all-out Santa Claus getup. The game's temperature will be about 90 degrees, but nobody wears head-to-toe blood-red body armor if they're worried about heat.

I like this move by the 'Pack, as it more or less kills Tech's color-out ambitions. Maybe next year we go for a gold-out, but only if it's the Wake Forest game.

In other fashion news, Colorado has scheduled a black-out, meaning that if all of Georgia's traveling fans wear red, the whole stadium will look like Sanford Stadium on September 27, 2008.
