    At least it means we won't wear the all-white jammies that I despise. Our all-white is the ugliest uniform in all of college football. That look only works for the ultra-classic schools with one color like Oklahoma or gump.

    I can say that I went to the only puppy game where they wore black helmets (2009). They will never do that again. Tim taught them a lesson.

    The NCAA changed the rule on this several years ago. Both teams have to agree before the game, the written agreement is turned into the conference office(s), and the jerseys have a sufficient contrast. It was after USC/UCLA renewed their tradition of having both teams wearing their home jerseys.

    In theory, every UF game could be dark vs dark unless the opponent wore orange or blue jerseys.

    Gotta disagree with you on that point.

    We did win a national championship with them. My least favorite is white jerseys/orange pants. I hope we never wear orange pants again. Somehow, some way, they would've cost us a national championship or two if the 2006-2009 teams had ever worn them.

    The orange pants broke the streak in tally, they rock.

    I'm also a fan of the orange pants over the blue ones. However, I would swoon like a 16 year old girl if we ever had an alternate uni consisting of the white pants, white jerseys, and your avatar for a helmet.

    A Uni thread is always fun to read during the "football slow season". I'm good with Blue/Red uni's for the game against the Dawgs. I was never a big fan of the white/white Gator uniforms but I will admit that Tebow and Harvin made them look awfully good! Let's just beat the damn Dawgs no matter what color uniform we wear!

    Won't argue with that.

    I always love the superstition that creeps into these threads. My favorite road look is the orange pants with the blue pants a close second. Never liked the all-white pajamas look.
