Why is the new site black?

This isn't a steelers website, it's a buckeye website. Their primary color is RED.

Of all the teams with black you pick the Steelers? I would've said Raiders. Black is actually one of our school colors. Anyways, looks like a Buckeye theme to me.

This is like when someone makes a post saying "you mispeled ___________!" When they infact just misspelled the word misspell.

definitely more of a charcoal… my icon is black and it looks off set compared to the 'black' heading…very charcoal like.

Black? It's gray for me.

"YOLO" = I'm about to do something extremely ignorant/stupid & I need an excuse to do it.

This is one of those times someone is glad we can no longer downvote forum topics...

But not being able to downvote forum topics means trolls can make troll threads and not get banned as long as they don't comment. Bad idea IMO.

Good point. Damn law of unintended consequences.

Nah, they're not that smart. The self-extinction instinct will prevail.

Supermods can kill any forum topic so I don't think this will be an issue.

I'm a hurtin' buckaroo.

For anyone who knows about brand equity, you ask to your fans: what color is your brand?  Imo, most fans would say the bucks colors are: scarlet and gray. Black may be a school color, but it is not the primary one in the hearts and minds of fans.  This website has the look, tone, and feel of black. A huge strategic mistake imo. Just change the black to scarlet and it will be much improved.
