Jacksonville - Bringning you the worst in football fashion since 2005

Why does it seem like both the Georgia Bulldogs and the Florida Gators need gimmicks to fire up their teams for the annual showdown in Jacksonville? One would think that nearly 100 years of games, often with SEC title implications, would be enough. But no. Florida recently announced they will wear their new Nike Pro Combat jerseys this Saturday. Here is a picture of what they will look like:I don't know what's worse, the alligator scales on their helmets or the black "Grambling knock-offs" that the Bulldogs wore last year.
Let's not forget that the Gators started all this ridiculousness with their one orange sleeve jerseys back in 2005.
Uniforms don't change the players who wear them. For a home game, they may make a difference, but in a game like this, they are just a distraction. Both Georgia (2008 vs. Bama and 2009 vs. Florida) and Florida (2009 vs. Bama and 2010 vs. LSU) have lost their last two games when wearing alternate iniforms. Let's hope that trend continues with a Georgia victory on Saturday.
GO DAWGS!!!

Actually, wasn't UGA who started it?

Thank you, Coach Donnan ...
