    Guess we are going to find out. Although comparing baseball/softball unis to unis worn over a bunch of padding is not quite apples to apples.

    Been the rule for as long as I can remember

    By rule the visiting team must wear white jerseys. This means white, which does not include light gray, pale yellow, etc. The home team may wear white, but only if they get written agreement with the visiting team before the season starts (Rule 1-4-5-b).

    We aren’t the Gamecocks...not hardly. Florida is hot. All players will get extremely hot when wearing lots of gear. We are talking about one game.

    South Carolina is HOT too. I did basic training at Fort Jackson, SC and I can tell you I would've rather been back in Florida. It was just plain miserable. Same experience when I've been to Charleston.

    Yeah, Didn't Spurrier piss off LSU one year by not allowing them to wear their traditional white at home?

    Recruits LOVE it. They also LOVE new uni combo's that you old farts hate. So get over it, nobody cares about your traditionalist (old fart) mentality... :p;)

    Science says: Black jerseys suck.
    Recruits say: Black jerseys rock.
    Solution: Black jerseys at night.

    SOS was supposedly peeved at the LSU fans' behavior after they finally got a W against Spurrier in '97 (though I suspect it had more to do with the "Shiny Pants" digs from the LSU staff and the loss).

    So 'screw them guys' (and their white jersey request) was the philosophy for a couple of years.

    Petty as hell, and college football was all the better for it. Dude is the legend for a reason.

    There was a method to every bit of Spurrier's "madness"....
    He just loved getting under the opposition's skin every time he could... yet do it with a smile..plus.,
    Come out with the appropriate "Spurrierism" ti fit it!

    Wow, you are good. I don't remember this game. I had to look it up.

    Tennessee went with the "Smokey Gray" which was actually pretty sharp....I mean...for Tennessee. :)
    Heck, they actually beat us in them in 2016.

    Smokey gray is much more original than black, and would look better with O&B.
