    Now THOSE old retro unis were pretty cool. I wouldn't mind them once in a while. Those green and black things and those modern-looking white helmets? Burn 'em and never wear them again.

    And that's STILL better than those green and black things wear wore against A&M last year. Hell, we deserved to lose that game dressed like that imo. What a pure promotional joke, an absolute embarrassment. We looked ridiculous.

    Auburn blue is navy blue. I'm only a fan of that color in business suits. :)

    Given that today's kids want cool new uniforms, you have to wonder how a school like Penn State is recruiting so well. They've been wearing those same uniforms for as long as I can remember, going back to the 1960s. Not only that, but IMO they're ugly. Unless I'm mistaken, they're also one of those schools that don't put the players' names on the jerseys. I'm sure kids are cool with that. "I don't want anybody to know who I am out there."

    The Gator Logo on the Helmet has received more negative response than almost anything else. I guess going to the Script Gator did in it's day.

    I'd like a Blue Helmet. I don't mind the Gator Scale Jersey but keep it Orange and Blue.

    I do not care at all about uniforms but it is the off season.

    S&C, recruiting, training and scheme. That's all that matters to me.

    georgia, Texas, and ND have all done alternate uniforms/colors in the last 10 years or so. As have other traditional powers like Michigan, Ohio State, Washington, Miami, Michigan State, Stanford, etc.

    The number of holdouts are getting smaller by the year--really, it's only Bama, USC, and Penn State at this point.
