HATED the all black uniforms. I even hated that more than the all Orange uniforms Syracuse occasionally drags out.
All orange for a team called the Orange or all scarlet for a team called the Scarlet Knights (though less attractive than a traditional two-toned uni) is fine, but the all black look just looks so prosaically "modern" and meaningless (unless you are the Black Knights of Army). And topped off with the scarlet helmet it just looked like a charred and bloody Q-tip® (not to be judgmental or anything).
Believe it or not, the players like the black. So they are staying. Simple as that. There is no curse, there is no jinx, just bad play on defense on 3rd down. That being said, there is a rumor of a jinxed hat going around...
