Below is breakdown by uniform type since 2001 (navy bars) and CPJ era (white bars):
The other neat thing you see about the chart above is that CPJ has virtually eliminated the gold jersey. We've only worn a gold jersey three times since 2008. White helmets have become a popular alternate as of late. We only wore white helmets one time after Bud Carson's termination (with Chan against UVA in 2006) and CPJ has featured the white helmets 8 times in the last 40 games.
Looking good is important but so is winning. The winning-est CPJ uniform combination is still the most common, which is gold pants, white jersey, and gold hat (32-15 record). In a uniform change-up a couple years ago, Tech started wearing gold pants on the road as well so this uniform is becoming very common (21 times in the last 31 games). Only two uniform combinations have a better winning percentage than the staple gold/white/gold: white pants/gold jersey/white hat are 1-0 and white pants/navy jersey/white hats are also 1-0.
Mississippi State wants to wear white so Tech will be forced to wear a gold or navy uniform. This is where the rumor is emanating from for reprisal of the 2006 Throwback Thursday jerseys. The AJC is leading us to believe it'll be a new Navy that we've not worn yet this season. What are your thoughts?
