First of all, let me say this: I personally hate black as a uniform option. If it's not in your color scheme (and not white/grey) don't use it. That being said, people have been into black uniforms lately, probably because "black doesn't go out of style."
Flash back to the beginning of the season: when Boise State released their color schemes for the home game, they announced that the scheme versus UNLV would be revealed October 15. See below:
About a couple days ago, rumors started buzzing around about that announcement. A picture went up from an OBNUG fanshot:

And then this gem from @TheBTN put everyone on alert:
Rumors of a "Big announcement" during the Boise State vs Fresno State game... Hmm stay tuned folks.— Blue Turf Nation (@TheBTN) October 12, 2012
And now people are freaking out about black uniforms. To top it off, the school is selling black t-shirts, advertised on their front page. With BYU wearing black uniforms against Oregon State tomorrow, could this rumor be true?
I photoshopped my own crappy version of black unis...nope, still don't like it.
Nope, I really don't like it...though I should learn better photoshop skills
Update at 10:40 A.M.: I was right
The athletic department released a video of Tommy Smith wearing the new uniform (set to "Back in Black" of course). It actually is similar to what I photoshopped. The helmet is matte black as seen above, and the numbers are silver to blue (like their blue on blue unis). Jeremy took screen shots and are shown below:
Here's the video associated with the new uniforms: (Click to take you to the link)
What do you think of the new uniforms?
