Back in April, the Syracuse Orange announced that the Friday, September 9 kickoff vs. Louisville would be deemed an "Orange Out" for fans (as opposed to all the other games when you wear PLATINUM). They also said the official shirt of the day would be submitted via fan design. That design contest officially began yesterday, with submissions being accepted until June 15. You'll notice the sample shirt is white and not orange. Don't get us started...
