In physics, a color is visible light with a specific wavelength. Black and white are not colors because they do not have specific wavelengths. Instead, white light contains all wavelengths of visible light. Black, on the other hand, is the absence of visible light.
In light white is all and black is none but in things like paint or other coloring substances it is the reverse - white is none.

I's sort of like Pravda or the Commissars saying this is what we are going to do, what do you think. All those not in favor wil be sent to the Gulag!
Do any power 5 schools have black and white for their school colors? Maybe that‘s why CMC would like to change ours

Feel kind of dumb for opening this thread and thinking there wouldn’t be more than one person complaining.

That looks amazing, well done Cyclone turf!

That's a reflection. It's reflecting all light. Now gels for stage lights are interesting when you see what colors are used to make what.

I thought that's what I said. Haha!

Penn State comes to mind, albeit dark blue and white. Iowa State Raiders next with black and silver/white.

Oh maaannn I will never hear the end of this from my Hok "friends"
They copied the Steelers and we're going for that Raiders look (not exactly the franchise to model yourself after, but their jersey and helmet combo are elite)

I did have a random tavern hok approach me at Hy-Vee the other day while wearing my ISU mask and ask me why I had #### all over my face, but stuff like that is pretty common place in eastern IA
Totally believable and not made up. Sure hope he didn’t offer a condescending glance or smirk in the process.
