Oklahoma debuted some new uniforms on Tuesday via the @OU_football Twitter account.
Reactions were mixed, with some loving them (particularly the younger crowd) and some fans not feeling the alternative look. OU also launched a #bringthewood Twitter campaign (presumably to go with the new wood grain helmet look), and some spiffy video via its soonersports.com website.

Here are some of the best reactions online:
Wearing different jerseys once or twice a year gets better recruits and brings more energy to the team. It’s all about winning.
