I didn't hate the smokey grays we used to wear, but thought they could have been done better. Especially the Nike ones. If we're going to incorporate that color, let's do so in the shoes. Orange jersey, white pants, smokey gray shoes with orange/white trim. Those shoes would even look sharp with stormtrooper unis or with orange pants.
I understand the black jersey, which is fine if it's done right, but only on the rarest of occasions. And definitely not for a big game.
Hell fire!!! What is it with this "gray sh--!?" We are and should stay orange and white. If some of these guys want to try being other than the o&w, go somewhere where they change every week or so. You don't see other old traditional programs using this marketing gimmick that is pushed by the folks that manufacturer this stuff. Stay with the image that has gotten us a world wide identity know as the BIG ORANGE.
