Video: East Carolina Players React To New Black Uniforms For Florida Atlantic Game

Add East Carolina on the list of schools that are debuting black uniforms. The Pirates will take on the Florida Atlantic Owls in the Conference USA opener at Dowdy-Ficklen Stadium on Thursday night, and the school announced that fans need to “paint the game black.”

Of course, that meant that the Pirates would be wearing new black uniforms. Check out the players’ reactions to seeing them for the first time.

Personally, I think these uniforms look great — the purple and gold really stands out without going overboard. Plus, I don’t think you can ever go wrong with Pirates and the color black.

Thoughts?
