    I don’t get it. Why all of these blue schools want to wear black is beyond me. Nike must kick in a bonus.

    I can’t understand teams wearing colors different than the school colors. It’s getting to be like the NBA uniforms.

      I have to compliment you on your posts of late, most of which have been quite solid as opposed to your previous loony stuff, which you’d go totally off the rails (while somehow injecting a political angle into it). Unless I’ve missed something along the way from you, you’ve done a pretty much 180 overall.

        That was textbook passive agressiveness. Well-done.

          I’m confused, as I’m trying to understand how this was a passive-aggressive post based on it’s definition. Heck, I thought it was the complete opposite. After all, I didn’t beat around the bush or sugar coat anything – I flat out said he was a previously a nut but has come around of late. Nothing more or less.

          In my experience, passive-aggressive types are the ones who don’t tell or show you their true feelings, but instead mask them with subtle jabs, empty jargon, or weak promises/comittments.

            Clearly, I’m going to have to reassess. I can’t imagine anything worse than being perceived as “reasonable.”

              My apologies, and please feel free to revert back to your old self immediately. But if your alternative personality decided to stick around a bit longer, I’m all for it. {was that a passive-aggressive complement? I don’t know}

              • Thanks. I have no idea what was meant by passive aggressive there. “Back handed compliment” was probably more apropos. Perfectly fine btw. I take no offense to the “you used to be an asshole” sentiment other than the implicit suggestion that I may no longer be an asshole for which I take great umbrage. I’m obviously going to have to put forward a better effort.

                  I’m personally disappointed in you if it’s been so long that you’ve given offense to 3rdandG that he’s now complimenting you. I expect better.

                    I’ve contended all along that Derek has some of the very best football insight on GTP. I always pay attention to his posts…about football. I always respect his opinions about football.
                    And now, the tax cut has apparently done it’s work with him.

    I hope UF rides the energy bus all the way to Jville with their black uniforms on, which will give them super powers to defeat evil UGA!

    Speaking of energy bus, remember that lame ‘get on the energy bus’ thing CMR came up with in the preseason ’11?

        The closest Bama came was a kick off game and from the sideline it looked pretty much the same. I agree changing up uniforms is a distraction.

        I would like to see the silver britches be more silver as they once were.

        As for the Crocs I wouldn’t mind seeing them all black and blue 😉

    Why Florida is going to wear a black jersey makes no sense.

    One of the first things Pruitt did at tn was cancel the “smoke” jerseys (and he’d wear fake juice to China to get a player!).

    I think it’s a stupid rule that all the players have to wear the same thing. If we’re not going to pay them, give the players a stipend and let them buy their own uniform, of their own design. Oh, and numbers are so fascist, too. I want to see Zeus lining up in a chartreuse and lime green uniform with a lightning bolt on the back instead of a number. Man, everybody would be having fun!

    I hope they wear black and I hope we spend 4 quarters mirroring the first quarter of this years game. Then every time they bring up black jerseys the fan base will be like F*#% that remember last time?

        Yes, because consistently finishing middle-to-bottom tier in the SEC West with middle-to-bottom tier talent speaks volumes to coaching up inferior talent.

        Before you tell me “he had MSU as high as #2” please refer to how they finished that year and remember that your ranking mid-season means absolutely nothing to anyone, and Dak Prescott was no “inferior talent.”

          Getting middle tier talent to a program that had the smallest budget in the Conference when he arrived was an accomplishment and he did so without the NCAA investigating unlike their in state big brother.

    UGA has the best looking alternate uniform in football and it is actually one of our colors. As stated here before, I wish we’d alternate the black jersey between Auburn at home one year, Tech at BDS the next, and Florida the following. The players and fans get their fun, the recruits like them, and by scheduling it years in advance there is no “fake juice” aspect.

      My thought is to let the seniors pick an alternate uniform for Senior Day. They wore the G four years let them have some fun (although winning is real fun). I don’t think Kirby would let them get too crazy. Of course, losing to Tech in black jerseys would probably freak me out worse than my normal horrible posts.

    Mullen spoke to Gator fans at the Tampa Yacht & Country Club this evening, and the topic of uniforms came up.

    Mullen announced his own personal Cocktail Party ensemble: J. Crew® Factory Round tortoise shell prescription sunglasses, Vineyard Vines® open-collared lightly-starched dress shirt, Turnbull & Asser® royal blue ascot tie, white Polo Ralph Lauren® jean shorts, and Crocs® Blue Beach Line Lace-up Boat Shoes with matching Skipjack® Belt and Croakies® 40th Collection retainer.

    Later, while stopping for gas off the Lee Roy Selmon Expressway, Mullen got his ass kicked.

    I mean UF has a pretty solid alternate uniform (for Florida) already in the all orange uni. Sticking black on the uniform isn’t going to make it better when that’s not part of your school colors.
