LOOK: Shirts and Pants for Vanderbilt Game Revealed

Do you like Plato? Cuz we’re in a MF’n cave y’all

The Allegory of the Cave (sometimes called Plato’s Cave) is an allegory written by the Greek philosopher Plato in his work Republic to compare “the effect of education and the lack of it on our nature”.

In the allegory, the character of Socrates describes a group of people who have lived chained to the wall of a cave all their lives, facing a blank wall. The people watch shadows projected on the wall from objects passing in front of a fire behind them and give names to these shadows. The shadows are the prisoners’ reality, but are not accurate representations of the real world.

Socrates explains how the philosopher is like a prisoner who is freed from the cave and comes to understand that the shadows on the wall are actually not reality at all. A philosopher aims to understand and perceive the higher levels of reality. However, the other inmates of the cave do not even desire to leave their prison, for they know no better life.

White shirt, white pants, black helmet, block M. Ladies and gentlemen, Plato’s philosophical musings on the innate intellectual incapacity of humans and the unwillingness better our situations for fear of the unknown has brought us THE GREATEST UNIFORM COMBINATION OF THE 2021 SEASON.

Also, I wish I could have been randomly hiking through Rock Bridge State Park and stumbled upon a 6’5”, 300 pound football player in full uniform emerging from the Devil’s Icebox wielding a mother forking flambeau. That’s some horror movie level imagery right there, yeah?

Anyway, what say you on this week’s football clothes?
