    Both the Gators and Dawgs will wear dark colored uniforms(Red and Blue) during the WLOCP from here on out.

    I love it.

    Hate to bring up a soccer reference, but. . . . that's the way they do it. You only wear the "alternate" when the "kits" (uniforms) clash.

    I mean, why not? I think it looks cool.

    as long as the qb is not colorblind, it should be fine.

    I like it. Always one of my favorite games of the year and I think the blue and red will be a nice contrast. I liked that Duke wore blue and FSU wore garnet in the ACCCG. I wish this was more common in neutral site games/bowl games.

    Yeah why not, the unis are not similar in color, so thee shouldn't be a problem. Now we just need to start winning the games again.

    I had heard they did this earlier in the 60's, that is a pretty cool pic. If they begin to sell alcohol like mentioned in another thread plus the new little jersey tweak, FL/GA will be quite the scene come Novemeber 1st.
    With that said, the only sight i care about seeing is the UGA section emptied out late in the 2nd half.

    If we are looking for a true "throwback" element, how about no facemasks.

    In last night's Gator baseball game vs. Illinois State, the Gators wore orange jerseys and the Redbirds wore red jerseys. Looked awful. Not enough contrast. I suppose blue and red is plenty of contrast.

    Now we wear blue and they wear red. Every year.


    Personally, I love it. Always thought there should be more games where both teams wear their colors.

    We should wear Orange, the blue is now stained with the reeking stench of defeat and a losing season.

    I like it. Always thought it'd be cool when the game falls on Halloween for UGAg fans/team to wear black (helmets/unis) and our team/fans wear orange

    Seriously. When the basketball team is ranked #1 in the nation, there is ZERO excuse for a football uniform thread until at least mid April. o_O
