Not to be the one that cried “wolf,” but… this time, it’s for real
It sounds like UGA is due to wear Nike Pro combat uniforms against Boise State in the Kickoff Classic.
I know I called this possibility last year, which was ironically one of my last entries for some time after I went into hiding, but it looks like this is going to happen.
The teams selected to sport the 2011 Nike Pro Combat system of dress uniforms include the United States Military Academy (Army), Boise State University, University of Georgia, Louisiana State University, Michigan State University, the United States Naval Academy, The Ohio State University, University of Oregon, and Stanford University.
The uniforms will hit the field on opening day of the 2011-12 college football season and throughout the year during some of fiercest rivalries in college football. Dates include Oregon vs. LSU at Cowboys Stadium (9/3), Boise State vs. Georgia at the Georgia Dome (9/3), Michigan State vs. Michigan (10/15), LSU vs. Auburn (10/22), Ohio State vs. Wisconsin (10/29), Stanford v. Notre Dame (11/27) and the annual service academy bragging rights matchup between two of the nation’s most prestigious football programs ? Army vs. Navy (12/10).
I know there will be mixed feelings over this, but hell folks, it’s a non-conference game in the Dome. If we can’t have fun while we’re whipping Boise’s ass, then why are we even here? Let’s be honest, if we win the game, nobody will care, and if we lose, everybody will hate them.
Let’s just pray Nike doesn’t make us wear black helmets.
