Look... I don't care if it was the Paddle People, the cheerleaders, pom girls, or Boone himself (Ok, we would probably listen to Boone), but whoever decided that #BlackOutBaylor was a good idea needs a swift kick in the pants.
We wear Orange.
We don't black out, or white out, or flat grey out. We Orange out.
So stop. Just stop it.
One good thing that has come out of this is the Twitter reaction... Love it.

This black out talk has gotten more Orange response faster than @ThayerEvansSI did when he went all douche on OSU.— Gundy's Hat (@GundysHat) November 18, 2013
