Dawgageddon: Georgia waves white flag on black uniforms

Written by Juan Cena on Tuesday, November 24 2009 and posted in SWRT

Georgia Athletic Director Damon Evans has put the kibosh on alternate uniforms. This after the Dawgs were slammed in a loss to Florida wearing black helmets and black pants.

I know there are times when you try to use uniforms to maybe change the mood of the team and so forth, and that’s been done . . . [with] the blackouts we’ve had in the past,” Evans said. “But . . . I like our traditional uniforms –- the silver britches, the red jerseys, the white jerseys and the red helmets -– and that’s what we need to stick with at the University of Georgia. . . .

Congrats, Evans. Your football program is officially going backward. Sticking with the red and black and ditching alternate unis smacks of a team that is slowly regressing and stuck in the past.
Here's a helpful rule of thumb involving tradition: Tradition is good if it links you to the past. Tradition is bad if it binds you to the past. It means you're more willing to rehash the glory days of the past than to build a future to be proud of. It means not taking risks now because that's not how they did it in the good old days. It means not willing to let go of the dead weight that's holding you back.
Alternate unis aren't what caused Georgia to lose. It's that defense coordinator that Evans and Mark Richt keep propping up. Admit it, Willie Martinez has fewer active brain cells than Kurt Cobain did after he blew his head off. Everybody except Richt can see that.
