So the sleeves are different on the gold jerseys this year. Maybe the helmet decal will be gold too?

We must wait with bated breath as no helmet is shown in the video. I recall several posters wanting the old school gold helmets with the snow capped A. Maybe you'll get your wish.

Good grief...

Our athletic department does a lot of things well, but they need to grasp the concept that teasing an announcement as "major" and then having it be something small alienates fans.

Also, they're offering a "family pack" of discount tickets and concessions. For the first game. Which is a great way to reward fans who didn't buy season tickets, I guess.

Gold out? I get white out and black out. They are real things that are self explanatory. But what is a gold out? Gold Rush, which has been used before, would make much more sense.

I rescheduled a conference call at work to log in and learn about our new home+home with an SEC/ACC foe or to hear about the new KBS Beer Garden or to hear that we finally made the right decision to christen the field "Jerry Moore Field". But all I got was a wardrobe update.

I tried to tell y'all yesterday not to get your hopes up. We always over sell these type of announcements.


When will "It's better than what we had" no longer be good enough for App State?

Yeah, after the previous "MAJOR" announcements turned out to not be, I was pretty tempered in my expectations for this one.

I wish the Athletic Department would stop trying to make these overdone "themed" days happen. We've seen them try to "Stripe The Stadium" and push "White Outs" and now "Gold Outs," but they aren't meeting their fan base where they're at. I expect very few to hear about this push for all gold, so it will likely be another fail.

Instead of pushing these "__________ Outs", like every other school does around the nation, do something unique that Appalachian fans will buy into. I mean, why not a Yosef Day instead? So many of our students dress as him for the games already, so why not feed into it a little? There are times where I feel like our Athletic Department (i.e., Doug and company) do things extremely well, and then there are times that I feel like our Athletic Department (i.e., marketing and fan engagement) totally miss the mark. I don't know, I guess I was hoping for something truly Appalachian in this announcement, not just another copy and paste ploy to get people to The Rock.

A Gold Out is fine. But not a "big announcement." Especially since the team has worn gold uniforms the last two seasons.

What misses the mark is that following the announcement, they should have linked to 10 new gold t-shirts for sale.

Still, they need to have 25,000 free gold shirts at KBS that day. Even if there's 30 sponsor logos on it. If you're gonna commit to a Gold Out, commit 100 percent.

I just hope they don't overreact to the negativity by having the seniors Tweet "the Gold Out was OUR idea, if you're a REAL fan, you'll wear Gold on Sept. 9" like they did with the whiteout last year.

That was anti-climatic. What do they have? Dixie Carter in charge of social media over there or something?

At least gold is a color a lot of fans have apparel in. White was kind of an odd color last year and even that worked surprisingly well in the stands.

I think Geraldo's opening of Capone's Vault wasn't as built up as this, but I'm still pumped to see The Rock painted gold!
