- Loganville, GA
Let me ask you something. What exactly could we be doing right now to "build GT?" I'm pretty sure, as fans, we are supposed to go to(or watch) the games and support the team. I have people over pretty regularly to watch football on Saturdays and, since I'm on the other side of the country, there are no other GT fans in my house. I have never heard anything good from those people about our uniforms(except for 2013). Building a successful program has a lot to do with the outside appearance of the players. If people can't read the numbers or think that the pants they are wearing look like mustard, that is all you will hear about for the entire game. Same reason why I wouldn't go to an interview in jorts... Some teams make an impact by wearing crazy uniforms or having a million different combinations. Oregon has been very successful at that. If you asked anyone who follows cfb at all about Oregon, they relate them to their jerseys.People keep talking about unis, but all I have seen are the shirts. Don't pants have anything to do with it? Are they the same as last year?
Anyway, as I posted bout a month ago, I no longer care what they look like or what the trim color is. A classic traditional look would be fine, but sick of hearing about Dodd unis.
2014 marks the 50th year since we played our first season after Harrison/Dodd made one of the most stupid, idiotic, egotistical moves in the history of college athletics. Damn near killed us. A great coach in the 50's, but a horrible AD in 60's / 70's. More concerned with getting out every day to play tennis than running the business.
Why can't we focus on doing what is necessary to building GT than worrying about unis?
