07:10 AM ET 04.22 | West Virginia football will open with a new look in 2013 -- make that new looks. The Mountaineers will have a total of 27 different uniform combinations to choose from, including the introduction of a white helmet for the first time since 1979 and a gold helmet for the first time since 1978. The players will have three different Nike jersey colors to choose from including blue, gold and white, along with the same three color options for their pants. Stitched inside the back collar of all three jerseys will be the West Virginia state motto, Montani Semper Liberi, (Latin for "Mountaineers are Always Free,"). A canary image also will be stitched inside the front collar representing West Virginia's great coal heritage.

Jeez, I hope they don't play Maryland or Oregon. I won't be able to tell the teams apart.

(BTW, I'm waiting for the day the equipment managers screw up a road game and bring different kinds of uniforms and there aren't enough of the same type to dress everyone!)

And I bought a package of multi-colored boxer shorts over the weekend.

Maybe they should spend more time making their defense better and less time figuring out new uniform styles. Just saying.

You beat me to it!

at least all the pieces of the uniforms are the Mountaineers actual colors...

How much of a distraction is that knucklehead Altimont?

Local friends attribute to 'roid rage.

None going forward.....I've heard the same things.

Arky just can't put all the pieces together...too little timely hitting, WAY too many errors.

Team could get hot, but I am not planning a trip to Omaha this year......

I WANT THE RETURN OF THE GINGER AVATAR PIC! YOU! YOU ARE NOT ALLOWED TO PLACE LOW PERCENTAGE AVI BETS EVER AGAIN! Alternately, you may share full-sized copies of your ginger avi image so that it will never be lost.

This describes UTx. I gave up on Omaha in mid-March.

Worse results for a talented team since, well, since basketball season or football season. Go golf and tennis...

Don't blame me, blame our SS for not turning 2 and ending the inning before the 3-run HR that won game 1. Blame the up that blew the call in to allow extra innings in the deciding game 3 of the series.

Arky SHOULD have beat LUS, at least in the eyes of this homer.

Ginger will be back in a week.....one long week.....

I am worried Van Horn ends up in Austin soon.....was afraid it was going to happen last year. Hell of a job interview going to Texas and winning a regional and Super Regional on the road, in state........

Montani Semper Liberi
------------------------------
In my Latin book that translates into "Mountaineers always have a bad defense!"

April 22, 2013  11:10 AM ET

"Currens tergaque semper curcurri liberi montani" ie "Running backs always run free against Mountaineers".

This weekend has the football loading up on TX HS legends, as Riley Dodge and Bob Shipley join the staff as player personnel and quality control dudes.

Riley has about the smartest football IQ for his age since he was 12.

Does Nike offer some type of hair-piece or replacement for Holgorsen's comb over? Need that bro

April 22, 2013  03:12 PM ET

Holgorsen should sport a buzz cut.
