I just wanted to see what the board thinks of the use of the maize uniforms in basketball. I think that they are our best-looking jersey and definitely understand the tradition behind them, but to me, they have been over-used this season.
As far as I understand (and I have only been a fan of the basketball team for a relatively short time, so correct me if I'm wrong), the maize jerseys are for "big games" in part because they are usually what the team wears during the NCAA tournaments, whether they are home or away.
This season, though, it seems like nearly every game has been in the maize: both MSU games, OSU, Indiana, Illinois, Arkansas, all 3 games in Hawaii, etc. I can't think of any home game this season where we have worn the whites (note: I have not watched every game, I'm sure there were plenty of early-season games that we did), but I would like to see them broken out more often. There is no reason to wear the big-game uniforms for a game against Illinois, like we did last weekend. I just feel that when we wear them so often, it diminishes their importance, to the point where maize is our primary and white is the alternate.
