Default This could be amazing.

So we all know Case is starting Sunday night on national TV. It'll be his first home game and I'm sure the entire city will have his back. However, something else may be on his side this game as well...

We're in BATTLE RED.

Now other than the obvious fact that red is statistically shown to be a more menacing color to your opponent, here's something else:

Garret Graham in Battle Red:




Now, one of Case's favorite targets at the U of H, Patrick Edwards:




So not only will it be his first home game, BUT WE WILL BE IN THE SAME EXACT COLORS AS HIS COLLEGE TEAM! He's gonna be seein' them all over the place! He'll think, this is just like the good old days! It's gonna be zoppity!


Who's with me??

Win or lose, I love BRD. Are we rocking the red pants this time or white like last year?

Interesting indeed. Case's home debut in Battle Red, just like the Cougars.

If we win that game behind Case, the city will go freaking nuts.

Disagree with everything you said there. Battle Red jerseys are great but the Steel Blue is our home color and it looks fantastic.

You can't wear dark colors on the road unless the home team decides to wear white.

You don't just WEAR battle red whenever. Battle red is not to be wasted. No, battle red is for special battle fighting.

I hope we wear the blue letterman jackets with the bedazzled numbers on the shoulders and some cute pink tights to really maximize our fashions.

Jags were the battle red game last year and 2011 I believe. I hope we can end our prime time woes this week.

Battle red will actually be appropriately symbolic. The team is fighting to salvage its season in this game.

As long as Case plays well, I am going to be satisfied. I just could not have stomached a loss with Schaub at the helm...

I'm pretty sure the Ravens were the Battle Red game last year...and I've always been of the opinion that red should be our regular home jerseys...they look great.

Yeah, but we're not the Broncos.

Uh, uh-oh we're not even close to the Broncos.

And prime time for a not-so-prime-time team. I hope Case can pull off some magic and shake us of our prime time woes.

Here's for hoping.
