Recruit: Georgia football bringing back black uniforms


According to a tweet from incoming 4-star linebacker recruit Kenney Britt, the Georgia Bulldogs will wear their alternate black jerseys this season for the first time since 2008.

The team has not worn these uniforms since their 41-30 loss to Alabama in September 2008. At the time, the Bulldogs were ranked third while the Crimson Tide were below them at eighth in the polls.

Perhaps the school thought they were bad luck, but fans, due to a love for the aesthetic, have been pushing for them to bring them back for some time now. If tweets from Britt and other recruits are any indication, they will be getting their wish this season.

Britt followed up with a clarifying tweet that his picture with Georgia head coach Kirby Smart was indeed an indication that the uniforms would make a revival in the 2016 season:

Obviously, the black uniforms were not the reason the Bulldogs lost to Alabama in 2008, but superstition holds a large place in sports, particularly at the collegiate level. The all-black aesthetic is clearly a fan-favorite, based on the general disappointment over their absence, so at the very least, this represents a solid marketing move for the school.
