Don't mess with Texas

There is ugly. And then there's ugly.

But the uniforms that Texas Tech will be wearing today when they host the University of Texas are absolutely atrocious. It's one thing, as Paul Lukas would say, to desecrate Old Glory - but it's an entirely different thing to desecrate the Texas flag.

Meanwhile the Longhorns will be wearing their classic road uniforms - white helmets, white jerseys and white pants. The Longhorns don't go for the special one-off uniforms. As Coach Darrell Royal used to say, the uniforms are work clothes - and work clothes don't need to be fancy.

The 'Horns may not be on the same plateau as they were during the Vince Young and Colt McCoy days, but one fact remains. When you're good and you have a reputation, there's no need to monkey around with your uniforms.
