It’s never too late for a piece of uniform news, right? Virginia Tech is having military appreciation day on September 22, when they host Bowling green. To mark the occasion the Hokies will suit up with a military fatigue designed helmet.

While we are known to frown upon gimmicky uniform ideas at proud programs, it is difficult to give a thumbs down to anything paying homage to our troops. But be warned Virginia Tech, you are treading in deep water with the selection committee already for next season. Please be respectful with this tribute and not go overboard, the way Utah did.

In case you missed it, here is a look at the practice uniforms being worn by the Texas Longhorns during spring practices.
