Pre-Independence Day thought

I only hope that one day soon we as a nation can finally get past judging others by their color.

… Do kids really make one of the most important decisions of their lives based on uniform fashion?

“I hate to say it, but some do,” Phillips said. “I have lost a player, way back when, on a color of a uniform. That’s where we are. You gotta understand it. You gotta go with it. Hopefully this uniform gives us an edge on some folks.”

As the saying goes, youth is wasted on the young.

    Like it or not, aesthetics matter. We don’t buy cars that are ugly colors, and most of us don’t want to wear clothes that are ugly colors. Players and fans pay attention to things like uniforms. Hell, so does the military. I think a big recruiting pitch used by the Marine Corps are those sharp dress blues.

    I think I’d be more concerned with the depth chart

    I dunno. I have a lifelong aversion to the color orange, regardless of its shade. Add in some blue and I really start getting ticked off.

    yeah, those checkerboards are a deal closer.

      I’ll wager a large amount of money saying that you aren’t in the target demographic of a D1 SEC football program recruit…

    Ohio Dog,
    I say this not as a Georgia fan, but as someone who isn’t colorblind; Florida’s uniforms make my retinas itch. That shade of blue is something that can probably be seen from space, and mixing it with bright orange is a crime against humanity.

      I once ate a pizza with anchovies and all sorts of other exotic toppings that made me puke my guts out. The vomit looked exactly like Florida’s colors.

      I ate a mcDonald’s bfast burrito, drank a large coffee, and then took a huge shit. It looked like Florida’s uniforms. It also resembled many of their fans.
