Florida will be garbed in Nike Pro Combat jerseys for the Cocktail Party.
My favorite part: “Florida’s uniforms have alligator-skin print on them from head to toe.”
I hope they look bitchin’ while they’re losing.
Filed under Gators, Gators...
Holy cow those things are wretched. I particularly hate the reptillian looking scale design on the britches side.
The Gators have the ugliest uniform in college football to begin with–sort of a cross between Clemson and Boise State. This just makes it even uglier.
Hey it worked the last time with the one sleeve different color thing.
Actually, the last two times they did a gimmicky uniform change they lost to Bama and LSU.
I hate doing this, especially for a big rivalry game
We know of what you speak.
We knew about this well in advance, so I declare it “non-fake” juice
That just makes it premeditated fake juice.
maybe Irvin knew last summer he’d need a boost, so he scheduled the juice delivery. He’s a master motivator, you know.
the gloves are kinda cool.
The better to jerk off with.
exactly….like a gator is jerkin you.
Will our uniforms be covered in dog fur from head to toe?
Corch is a motivational genius, just like he’s an offensive mastermind. Don’t question Irwin Meyers. Go gator, don’t take no jive.
Irvin Meyers. IRVIN. Geez, get it right.
You have me gasping for air over here..
Looks like it’s snowing in the swamp.
Hell is about to freeze over.
Please, please, please don’t let Nike invite us to wear gimmicky uniforms.
I think we’ve had all of that that we can take for a generation!
I prefer my own design:
My name is Lau…….as in ‘Lauser’
Uniform changes for the gatas seem to be common enough that it doesn’t seem to affect the play on the field much, but here’s to hoping I’m wrong. On another note, don’t they have to wear white jerseys this year?
Let’s hope uniform shenanigans = embarrassing loss in the cocktail party. I’m only making the assumption based on recent history.
Go Dawgs!! Beat Florida!!
The only Pro Combat uni I’ve seen that wasn’t completely ridiculous looking was Texas’ last year; it actually looked pretty cool. The rest of them look like they belong on Marvel characters.
That being said, I think I’m on record as thinking an occasional uni change is a good thing, as long as it’s not too much. Our black jerseys look good; hopefully Richt never decides to match them with black pants.
Ultimately, if the players want to wear black jerseys, I’m all for it, but the team has to earn it.. a reward late in the season… like maybe beating Florida.. then you get to wear them at a home game.. or get to the SECCG, you can wear them there. But keep the silver britches, keep the red helmets.. red still needs to be a somewhat dominant color on some part of the uniform.. we’re the red and black, after all. I’m a traditionalist, but don’t mind rewarding the players on occasion.
+1 And don’t include the fans by announcing it in advance. We don’t have to color-coordinated to be unified. Just do it.
Agreed.. but the blackout in the stands does look pretty cool.. whether it’s a blackout or just black colored unis, I just want it to remain special.
I’m kind of surprised we’ve never gone back to the red pants on occasion. I am as conservative as they come, but I think that’d be pretty cool to bust out red pants on the ’80ish-style white jerseys against #1 Auburn in the prettiest little village on the plains.
here’s the uniform design that reflect Florida for me:
helmets: Orange primer, with several spots of bondo.
jerseys: tank top look, or maybe baseball sleeves, with the numbers and names airbrushed on
pants: stone washed denim. What else? Cut them off just above the knee so they look frayed.
now THAT’s a uniform that captures the essence of Florida.
In lieu of a team bus, a chromed out F-350 with the HUGE Gator logo on rear window pulls a 120′ foot john boat with the team seated two to a bench.
Crazy? more like CRAZY AWESOME!!!!
Maybe Under Armour can come up with a combination deer stand/meth lab motif for AU when we play them.
sadly for Tech fans, Russell Athletics has no fake juice uniform plans for their matchup with UGA; it would be something if they could just come up with uniform colors that don’t look like someone just peed all over their laundry.
so you think Under Armour could come up with some overalls uniform pants for AU?
We must protect this tree stand, errrr, HOUSE!
At first I kinda liked the Miami helmet, but then I realized it looked too much like a green bowling ball.
I am amazed by the passion of the fashion designers that visit the Senators site.
Nike is trying to turn us all into Arena Football teams.
The “F” is for “Fail”.
