Ten Reasons The Georgia Bulldogs Need To Bring Back The Blackout

The fact that Georgia's football jersey color has been a water cooler topic in the past three years is comedic to most college football fans.

While many college football teams change their jerseys year to year, and lose in them over and over, Georgia just can't seem to change their shoe lace colors or single knots to double knots without getting blogged to death.

Their "blackout" experiment in 2007 went from a complete success, to a complete failure, thanks to a 41-30 loss to Alabama in one of the biggest games ever played at Sanford Stadium.

Matters worsened when Georgia was slaughtered by the Gators, again, in black helmets with elementary looking red facemasks, and black pants.

Suddenly black has become a color of bad luck for the Georgia program. But why get rid of it? Last season's athletic director Damon Evans stated Georgia wouldn't wear black anytime soon. Mark Richt proved to view things the same way, wearing red jerseys in two UGA home games over the past two seasons (2009 vs. Kentucky and 2010 vs. Georgia Tech) where the majority of fans deliberately wore black to the games.
