Maybe its just me, but Georgia's uniforms for their game against Boise State are utterly ridiculous... They look like a team that played against the Sharks in "Any Given Sunday" or a damn superhero. Very Bush League...

I am embarrassed for Georgia and the SEC. I get why Oregon and Boise State would wear ridiculous uni's (although theirs are not that bad). They don't have the tradition that Georgia or any of the SEC schools have so they need the gimmicks. But Georgia fans should be embarrassed.

Richt must be desperate to allow his team to wear that junk...

I am a fan of tradition myself and hate the latest craze in changing just to change.

However, I think those uniforms look pretty bad-a$$!

Funny how people still claim Oregon needs gimmicks. Oregon's unis are old news. The fact of the matter is Oregon would curb-stomp Georgia and UGA knows it (they already backed out of the home-home with the Ducks). Tradition...sure, ok.

But, I agree. These Georgia unis are lame. I like their traditional ones...well, for traditional ones. My question is...are these UF's Combat unis even real? They take the cake for absurdity. Teenage Mutant Turtles!

This article does an excellent job summing up why, for Oregon, the uniforms matter very much.

Michael Kruse on Nike and the success of Oregon football - Grantland

Quote:
There is next to no reason the University of Oregon should have a good football team... How did [they get good]?
...
At the top of the list of reasons: their uniforms.


Not to Rachel Bachman. "It all starts with the uniforms," said the sports business reporter for the Oregonian.


Not to Paul Swangard. "The uniforms, I think, more than anything else," said the managing director of the university's Warsaw Sports Marketing Center, "are probably the key ingredient."


And not to Tinker Hatfield. "What is a more visible way to turn up the heat and create a personality," the famous Nike designer said, "than through the football uniforms?"3


The football Ducks of Oregon are something new. They didn't get people to watch because they got good. They got good because they got people to watch. They are college sports' undisputed champions of the 21st century's attention economy.

Those are hideous... wow! I do not think they are real though. I can't see Florida wearing those. As much as it pains me to say, Florida regular uni's Orange Helmet, Blue Jersey, and White pants are pretty snazzy... High remarks for me on the overall uniform and staying with the schools colors.
