To my discredit, I gave up before the comeback (of sorts), but the lack of a running game seems to be a major problem. I didn't see much in the way of run blocking or speed in the backfield, leading to three and outs, leading to the defense being on the field constantly, leading to points against, leading to . . .
I am not quite sure what was more hideous. The 50 unanswered points by Princeton or that train wreck of a uniform/ helmet combo.
Today's college uniforms will in time, be what the 1970's were to baseball unis--awful in hindsight.
By the way, this is what a Princeton football player should look like...
...And while we're at it, the best ever Georgetown uniform:
DFW probably anticipated I'd write this: it can be argued that those 1971 Orioles unis were aesthetically awful but to watch those four 20-game winners hurl from the mound was purely sublime!
For an even more garish baseball uni look, may I suggest the "Joseph-and-his-multicolored-coat" unis of the JR Richard era Houston Astros, circa 1980. Also, I recall some other posterior-ugly White Sox unis in the late 70s/early 80s.....
