You know it’s the offseason when…

Georgia prospects Arch Manning and Pearce Spurlin lll model some new prototype Bulldogs uniforms during their recruiting visits to Athens last weekend.

Chip Towers actually goes to the trouble of debunking the latest chatter about uniforms.

Georgia traditionalists can relax, however. While all-white “unis” were a hit with recruits, the Bulldogs specially ordered only a handful of them specifically for use during recruiting visits and have no plans to wear them this season or anytime soon.

Asked about the chances of Georgia playing a game in the all-white uniforms, a person familiar with Bulldogs’ football operations responded with an all-cap text: “ZERO.”

This isn’t a reflection on Chip so much as it is on a portion of the fan base that gets itself wired up on the possibility that this will be the year that Georgia starts going Oregon with its team gear.  Not gonna happen.

Cryptic

Some say this presages a font change to jersey numbers…

Honestly, you got me.

The state of Gator recruiting

This, about Florida scheduling its spring game for a Thursday night, strikes me as both practical and sub-optimal:  “The Gators moved the game from Saturday to Thursday in part so they would not have to compete for recruiting visits against exhibitions at Georgia, Alabama, Miami and elsewhere.”

Tell us you’re not ready to compete with the big boys without saying you’re not ready to compete with the big boys.

The sad thing is, the general perception is that recruiting is on the upswing in Gainesville.

It’s clear that Napier emphasizes recruiting in a way his predecessor, Dan Mullen, did not. We’ll see if the results follow.

Talk about your low bar.

Uh, while we’re on the subject, does this count as emphasis?

Get in on the ground floor while you can, kids.  Florida football is going places.

Embracing the suck

This is one helluva flex, SMU.

I never thought I’d see the day when Eric Dickerson’s TransAm would become an honored part of SMU’s history.  Major baller there.

Blinged

You know, it’s Central Florida honoring a Gasparilla Bowl win with a ring, so that’s two strikes against it…

… and, yet, somehow it still works.  Go figure.

The ring’s the thing.

Okay, they’re gaudy.  Yes, they tend to be over the top, with too much information.  (Do we really need to be reminded about 1980 again?)

But when it’s my team that’s got one to celebrate, they’re beautiful.

Cutting edge

I dunno… I assume the players like this, but it smacks me as trying a little too hard.

Remember, it’s the scanning code on the front of the jersey that counts.

The most obvious marketing hookup in the history of the universe

Shot.

Chaser.

Yes, they’re clown shoes.

And, yes, I’m looking forward to seeing the football team outfitted in Waffle House spikes this season.

One that matches the moment

No reason to be subtle, eh?
