The fine folks over at Lincoln's 93.7 FM "The Ticket" put together some renderings of what the Huskers could trot out implementing the color black. Here's what they came up with:

I'm gonna say that most of the "traditionalists" are over 30 or 40 and most of the people who like the alternates are under 30. Also almost if not all of my highschool/collage friends love the alternates, and I for one don't want plain and simple all the time, I would want some sweet black fear instilling uniforms, so if you want to keep the program strong with a lot of good quality recruits you'll have to make a small sacrifice and deal with it for four hours on one of many saturdays. Plus i think it will give our defense a little more honor and pride because now the blackshirts are in black, that would make me play harder in order to prove myself and my team

How can all you "traditionalists" cry and moan about adding a little black to our uniforms? times change. Not our school colors? last time i checked the Blackshirts were quite possibly a bigger part of Husker tradition than anything else. Change it up. Times change. Its not like they would wear it every game its called an alternative uniform...You know for when you play a team that looks exactly like you...like we will be on Saturday. Nothing would look more fierce than if the sea of red Blacked out a stadium for the Husker's big 10 premier!

Leave them alone. We don't need to change them just because everyone else is. Those things Maryland wears give you a headache and lord only knows what Oregon is going to show up in. GO BIG RED!

Does anybody think that while T.O. is the A.D. or still kicking that we will change our uni colors?

Boo freaking Hoo! You people need to get with the times. Let me guess you all still have flip phones bc your traditionalist. Maybe we should take down the digital scoreboard put some cardboard numbers. You know bc of tradition. Love the black! Do it!

White jersey (visitors always wear white) black pants with red are okay. Leave the helmet alone.....hate the black jerseys and the black helmets.

To me, the most logical move is a black helmet. Remember fellas, we are trying to reduce confusion for our team on the field. Wisconsin's jerseys and helmets are soooo similar. Besides, I don't think we could wear anything but a white top being the road team. I love the tradition too, but I want a W. If this would be a benefit to our team, I am all for it! GBR!!!

What? We want to look like Texas Tech? I think we should stick with our traditional uni's.

Big Red is a tradition. Red outs. Red everything. Black could outline, but the main colors should still be red and white

I'd say if you are wanting black, maybe black socks and a thin black outline of Numbers.

The jersey needs to stay red. If they want to use black pants and a white helmet then fine. It's GO BIG RED!, not GO BIG BLACK. or even the black helmet, red jersey, and white pants. Drop the black jersey. Maybe have a red jersey with some black in it.

White jersey, black pants, black or white helmet. That seems most likely if there is any black at all.
