After a week of protests and racial tension on the campus, the school did the big reveal of the new unis for the first time Thursday. They claim the all-white look had been planned long ago, saying the Tigers played three games at Arrowhead from 2007-09 and wore a special uniform in each of those games, so they are continuing that tradition with a return trip to Kansas City this week.
“Prior to the season, Missouri Assistant Athletic Director for Equipment Don Barnes came up with a uniform concept that this team had never worn: a white base jersey-pant combo with black numbers and an anthracite Tiger stripe overlay accompanied by a white helmet equipped with a chrome secondary Tiger logo and facemask,” a news release from the athletic department announced. “The uniform combination will also feature gloves with the anthracite Tiger stripe pattern.”

Just hoping the student body doesn't get someone to step down for the plainness.
