Red vs Blue

Or Cardinal (Red) vs "True Blue"

I think this is a good idea and would like to see more of it: "The last time the Trojans and the Bruins both wore home jerseys -- the Trojans in red, the Bruins in blue and gold -- was in 1982, when the schools shared the Los Angeles Coliseum. "I just thought it was a really cool tradition," (USC coach Pete) Carroll said. "

This violates NCAA rules which requires the visiting team to wear white. USC would be penalized two of their three time outs per half. Unless there is good reason for this rule I hope they make an exception or get rid of the rule completely. Are there color blind issues? That could make sense. An important note, UCLA coach Rick Neuheisel is in favor of the idea.

A few years ago the Dallas Cowboys and Denver Broncos played on Thanksgiving and both wore their vintage uniforms, Cowboys in blue and Broncos in orange. The NFL approved it. I'd like to see more of that if there are not good reasons against it. College basketball does it often. Illinois and Wisconsin recently played in orange vs red which was a little too close for viewers but the players said they had no problem with it. I'd restrict the color match ups to those with a little more contrast.
