Georgia can use alternate uniforms and still be traditional

The November 19th game versus Louisiana Lafayette is a blackout and black jersey’s might be making an appearance for the first time since 2008.

One thing you don’t see Georgia do too often is wear alternate uniforms. The last time was 2011 in the Chick-Fil-A Kickoff Game against Boise State. That day Georgia wore silver helmets, a new red jersey and red pants in a 35-21 loss.

It was Georgia’s third loss in a row while wearing alternate uniforms. Georgia wore black helmets and pants with traditional white jersey’s in a 41-13 loss to Florida in 2009. And then the infamous 41-30 loss to Alabama in Georgia’s last blackout.

Since those three losses, a large and vocal portion of the Bulldog nation has scoffed at every notion of Georgia ever going away from the traditional red helmet, red/white jersey, silver “britches” style.

They use such arguments as “We won’t look like Georgia” or “you don’t see Alabama wearing anything else”.

They bring up Alabama to show that championship and traditional programs shouldn’t wear anything other than their one helmet, two jersey’s and one pair of pants.
