Pretty soon all teams will be wearing all black: Western Michigan joins the club

The template is pretty much set now: Take your uniform, make it all black, produce a video with a smoke machine and extreme close-ups to unveil it, have the player model put his hands together to show off the logo on the gloves at the end. That's a wrap.

Western Michigan decided to jump on that bandwagon, with an all-black uniform and a metallic pattern on the helmet. WMU will wear the uniforms Saturday against Toledo. The Broncos did add a twist - they will give away "wearable replica helmets" to the first 5,000 students through the gates, according to mlive.com.

Western Michigan also put together a reaction video, and while it was fine, it's unfortunate the players didn't react like a hoops team seeing its name on the bracket during Selection Sunday.
