Syracuse University partnered with Nike and did the unthinkable Wednesday, announcing new Syracuse basketball uniforms that involved the color grey. The release of the new "Nike Hyper Elite Platinum" uniform, which will be worn by the No. 3-ranked Orange during their home game, Feb. 22nd, against the South Florida Bulls, is expected to get some resistance from fans because the jersey's color is the primary shade of long-time Big East rival the Georgetown Hoyas.

If you're curious how long SU will wear the grey uniforms?
"Word is Syracuse will wear this unis against South Florida and that's it," Keeley tweeted. "One time only."
