Why blue and white instead of maroon and orange?

Hokie Helpers T-shirt

We all know that maroon and orange is the perfect color combination for Hokies, but Hokie Helpers would be difficult to spot in a sea of maroon and orange parents, alumni, and new and returning students during opening weekend. When in doubt, look for a blue shirt!
