Florida’s AD is worried about the program’s brand being watered down by different jersey looks.
“It’s my opinion that we have some of the more iconic-looking traditional uniforms in college football,” Stricklin said. “The blue jersey, orange helmet, white pants, that’s a pretty clean look. So we want to be careful to not lose that brand identity by constantly changing things up. I think there may have been a time where we maybe fell victim to that.”
As opposed to merely falling victim to orange and blue, I suppose.
Most current recruits were barely old enough to remember Mullen’s glory days in his tenure as UF’s offensive coordinator from 2005-08, when Tim Tebow was running wild and the Gators were winning SEC and national championships. Re-establishing that brand identity is important.
Yes, looking like Tebow is the key. Probably means we’ll be seeing more taunting with Gator chomps. That ought to be good enough for a few SECCG victories.
