According to a report, several college football teams will be wearing black uniforms this season. Andrew Lind of the Tidewater News tweeted several photos on Saturday of black Nike uniform t-shirt designs — the same designs that will reportedly be used on jerseys this fall. Teams that are reported to participate include Alabama, Florida, LSU, Georgia, Florida State and a few others.
Yes, the same people who visited those Power Ranger abominations on the Dawgs for that 2011 game against Boise State are ready to dazzle us with this:
No, it’s not the ugliest thing I’ve ever seen – although we haven’t been blessed with a helmet shot, so there’s still a chance – but I find it amusing that with all the debate among the fan base about when the Dawgs should choose to dabble in going black again, the decision is apparently being taken out of our hands.
And how schmucky could Nike be with this? Why not dictate that Georgia has to wear these in the Alabama game?
