Uni watch: A look back–and forward–at Oklahoma State’s 48 combinations

We can never talk too much about uniforms, right?

Based on the popularity of the posts this summer about Oklahoma State coach Mike Gundy pushing for orange helmets to be added to the Cowboys’ mix and the gray jerseys switching from orange to black numbers, that’s my philosophy.

So what will the Cowboys wear in Year No. 2 with the 48 different combinations? How many repeats? How many new looks?

I, honestly, have no concrete answer, other than to expect about half of the combinations to be new.

But it’s fun to speculate.

To start, let’s take a quick look back at what OSU wore in 2011.
Louisiana-Lafayette: White helmet, gray jersey, white pants
