    I'm of the firm belief that we lost that game only because we offset their ugly uniform day by going with the all pajama look, with the dorky F helmets. Are we still winless in this uni combo?[​IMG]

    For what it’s worth black never makes anything look bad. A little Johnny cash action never hurt anyone

    This is Fugly but they wore this on Halloween.

    The next time the Cocktail Party is on Halloween, I want UF to wear all Orange and jawja to wear all black.

    Hard to look cool while losing. You would think we would learn not to wear these against gump, tenn, ga, etc.

  10. The raiduhs look their best in white jerseys and silver pants with the silver helmet.

    The aints look hideous in the all-black footie jammies. I have heard at times rumors that they want a black helmet design w/ gold stripes and fleur-de-lis for the whole thing, if the NFL would let them change.

    I honestly dont think recruits and players make any decisions based on uniform combinations. I am very proud of our uniforms and am sick of these ridiculous outfit changes. Let's play football and let other teams do the fashion show runway thing. Go Gators!

    I dont believe recruits are making decisions based on uniform combos. But I do think the unis can help create an atmosphere for recruits which can help sell the school.

    What makes you proud of a uniform? I love our O&B, and the script...but I wouldn't say proud. Times have changed. Alternate looks are here to stay.

    I'm sure no recruit is basing their decision on it, but the kids now love all that stuff. Creates the vibe you want then you sell them on the important stuff.

    How proud the alums in the stands are of the traditional unis isn't relevant. Kids get hyped by it, so it's part of the package of recruitment. Be mismanagement of recruiting not to go that route. Cater to recruits, not us old-timers.

    As much as I HATE HATE HATE those helmets, the guy in the picture had more to do with that loss. He flat out killed us in the second half.

    Yes, during the one Year Lane Kiffin had at UT we wore black jerseys against South Carolina.

    Still a great memory
