Here’s some photos of the black helmets worn today by the Georgia Bulldogs against Florida in Jacksonville. The team actually warmed up before the game in its traditional red lids, but then busted out black for the first time in school history.
(Why is Florida playing Grambling?)
As an alumnus of UGA, I’m not too keen on the change. Suppose it was done for merch and recruiting, but based on the reax I’ve seen, people aren’t all that excited about it.
Knowing how things work in Athens, if Georgia wins today, they’ll break them out again at some point. Loss? Never see them again in our lifetime.
