Re: [Uniforms] orange cuffs and collars

Orange was the color of the US Dragoons' trim before the ACW. As for UT's specific colors, I was given to understand that orange and white were voted on by the student body in the 1890s. There was a move to change the colors in the 1920s, but it was voted down. I think I learned this last at a UT frat party in the 1970s, so it may be as worthwile as the sports announcer's pronunciations!
