I've seen football teams have "black outs" and "white outs" and all sorts of other colored "outs" in recent years, but I do believe the Illini will be making history against Wisconsin next Saturday night. Through tweets from both the football account and Tim Beckman we have learned that the Illini will be having an "orange out" next week.
Next Saturday October 19 let's make it a "ORANGE OUT"! The only Big 10 team that has the color Orange will be wearing all Orange!— Tim Beckman (@coachbeckman) October 10, 2013
Oh man, now I just want to make a bunch of orange puns. It's just I don't really know any.
Orange you glad I don't know any orange puns?
BOOM. NAILED IT.
I put that pun out like CLOCKWORK ORANGE.
OH MAN ANOTHER ONE! I'M ON FIRE!
I should take these orange puns to Hollywood where I can become a big star. I just have too much talent. I'll have to hire an AGENT ORANGE.
GET ON MY LEVEL, YOU GUYS. BUT YOU CAN'T. I'M JUST TOO GOOD AT THIS.
Anyway, yeah, as for the actual orange out, I think it's a cool idea. I'm sure the players dig it, and anything that can get the fans involved is a good thing. Especially when it's for a night game against Wisconsin.
