Sea of Orange

Let's get one thing straight... We wear Orange.

Brett Deering

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.

Every Saturday.

So stop. Just stop it.

One good thing that has come out of this is the Twitter reaction... Love it.
