What I highlighted in bold makes no sense. You are correct that black surfaces definitely absorb more heat.
He meant photon torpedoes
Exactly...where are the photons that are coming out of your body? Black color heat absorption only applies to light.
Green,black, white, purple and maybe a little garnet and gold. From what i am reading dont resist change because change is inevitable.
I don't understand all of the disdain for black uniforms, alternate uniforms, or'gimmicky" uniforms because it bucks tradition and the Gators are a blue blood school.
If change is that bad, how do you even watch football now that we don't wear leather helmets, wool or cotton uniforms, and the forward pass has been introduced?
Four pages and no mock uniform pics???? What's wrong with this page?
Sorry, I'm not buying it. Light waves and heat are two different things, aren't they? . Black absorbs light waves, white reflects them. Your body does not produce light waves, so I'm calling BS on the notion that white reflects heat back onto your body. And the business about how the wind speed affects all of that is just plain sill; why would black colors be better in more wind if the original premise is true?
And the poster above that says black cars are not hotter than white cars is wrong also.
I'm not an expert. I can only go on what experts in the industry have told me. I'm simply passing along the information that was given to me. I trust the source and my own personal experience of wearing recent performance products. Like someone else mentioned above modern fishing apparel works the same way. Just because you don't understand it doesn't make it not true. I encourage you to go out and buy a gator blue shirt and a black shirt like Huk, Under Armour, etc makes. You'll find there's no difference.
Humans emit light. This is nothing new
Strange! Humans Glow in Visible Light
So did mullen say that or not?
Really? Just wait until they hit the field in September in those black unis and melt. Maybe us "old codgers' won't look so out of touch or "resistant to change".
I feel hotter in black during the summer. Perhaps white clothing retains my body heat, but I still think I would be less hot initially wearing white, as not absorbing as much heat from 95 degree sun.
Absorbing light is not good around radiation and hotter
Reflecting light is cooler and safer
Especially in humid climates
If it were 1965 and they were 100% cotton, then maybe so. Nike/Jordan Jumpman uses Dri-Fit material which is sweat/water, UV, and odor resistant.
That, and these kids are used to the heat and humidity no matter what color they wear. Even the ones with very dark skin.
Black uniforms don't affect the baseball and softball players for UF. It will be okay.
You are definitely showing your age if you think UF is a CFB Blue Blood. UF has been playing longer than the past 30 years. The majority of UF's football history is avg at best. The 90's under SOS put UF football on the map and the 00's put UF into the elite level of programs.
UF is more nouveau riche as it pertains to CFB history and the blue bloods of the sport.
Don't look now, but Michi, Ohio State, Notre Dame, Oklahoma, and Nebraska all go regularly to the alternate unis. That's 5/8 of the top 8 in wins all time, which is about as blue-blood as one can get.
It's really got nothing to do with a gimmick for motivation, it's simply what the kids like at this point. One more angle for recruiting, just like better dorms or a new football complex.
I just wish we would do the alternates in our own colors!
I imagine that's what we'll actually end up with. Maybe there will be a black one-off uni at some point against a cupcake, but it's more likely we get a few helmet variations (matte or blue shells, new decals, etc.) and some minor tweaks to jerseys. Add a change for a game each season and then having them in the rotation from time to time. That was Mullen's m.o. at MSU.
Cal, Minnesota, Army and ND were the original college football blue bloods back in the day
