The person with the different colored shirt is usually the best defensive player on the team, and us called the libero.
The person who wears a different colored jersey is labeled "Libero" (aka back-row specialist or DS) which is a special term for the one player on the team who specializes in back row passing and defense. The person is usually a shorter and better passer or defense player on the team. They can only play back row position.
A different colored shirt is worn so referees can track the libero going in and out.
More information about liberos:
Liberos may not at any time serve except for in college and high school volleyball. They may not attack from the ten foot line or set. You may play as setter as a libero, however you may not use it with your hands! You must bump set the ball. They cannot jump the net height and those are all the rules of a libero! its a really really really fun position.
"it's a libero jersey" Well that was a useful answer! Not. I think only someone who knows Volleyball well would understand that answer so what was the point in answering it. From http://www.dooyoo.co.uk/sports-equipment/volleyball-in-general/1059933/ "Libero - A libero is a specialist back court player who can not serve or jump anywhere in the front court. They will be substituted on and off on a rolling system throughout the game and must wear a different coloured shirt to identify them. They are usually brought non to deal with a particularly difficult server."
The Libero wears the opposite colored jersey from the rest of his/her team to make it easier for the libero tracker to keep track of them. The libero only plays back row, specializing in defense and passing.
The one person on the volleyball team that wears a different color shirt is called a Libero. This person is the defensive specialist. "The Libero In 1998 the libero player was introduced internationally, the term meaning free in Italian is pronounced LEE-beh-ro (rather than lih-BEAR-oh); the NCAA introduced the libero in 2002. The libero is a player specialized in defensive skills: the libero must wear a contrasting jersey color from his or her teammates and cannot block or attack the ball when it is entirely above net height. When the ball is not in play, the libero can replace any back-row player, without prior notice to the officials. This replacement does not count against the substitution limit each team is allowed per set, although the libero may be replaced only by the player whom they replaced. The libero may function as a setter only under certain restrictions. If she/he makes an overhand set, she/he must be standing behind (and not stepping on) the 3-meter line; otherwise, the ball cannot be attacked above the net in front of the 3-meter line. An underhand pass is allowed from any part of the court. The libero is, generally, the most skilled defensive player on the team. There is also a libero tracking sheet, where the referees or officiating team must keep track of who the libero subs in and out for. There may only be one libero per set (game), although there may be a different libero in the beginning of any new set (game). Furthermore, a libero is not allowed to serve, according to international rules, with the exception of the NCAA women's volleyball games, where a 2004 rule change allows the libero to serve, but only in a specific rotation. That is, the libero can only serve for one person, not for all of the people for whom she goes in. That rule change was also applied to high school play soon after."
1. THE "LIBERO" PLAYER
Each team has the option to register one specialised defensive player, "Libero" among the final list of 12 players for the whole tournament.
The specific rules for a Libero player are as follows:
A) He/she is restricted to performing as a back row player and has no right at all to complete an attack hit when the ball is above the height of the top of the net.
B) The Libero may not serve, block or attempt to block.
C) The Libero must wear a different colour shirt from the other members of the team.
D) Substitutions involving a Libero are not counted as regular and their number is unlimited. A Libero cannot take part in normal substitutions and may only enter or leave the game while the ball is out of play and before the whistle for service.
E) It is necessary to have a rally between replacement of two different players involving a Libero. With the previous approval of the first referee, an injured Libero may be substituted during the match by any registered player within the normal line-up list of the score sheet.
G) The designated replacement of a Libero will be limited to performing as a Libero for the rest of the match and the subsequent matches. Nevertheless, this player will be allowed to be registered again in the normal line-up of later matches once the initially registered Libero is officially re-instituted.
H) No other player will be authorised to perform as a Libero and in the case of further injury of the originally registerd Libero, he/she will be replaced by the same player under the same conditions as stated in previous points.

This is because the player with the "Different" uniform is the captain.
They wear this Jersey so that they are recognisable.
She is a defensive player only and is called the labero.
Yes if you were "Brony" otherwise just odd.
NFC teams are the home team in odd numbered years. AFC teams are the home team in even numbered years. Since the upcoming Super Bowl will be played in 2008, the AFC team will be the home team.
It means that if you are trying to make two equal teams, and you have an odd number of people, one person will not be able to be on either team and is said to be out. He's the odd man out.
