There has been plenty of discussion about the possibility of Georgia football bringing back its black jerseys. Well, we can now guarantee we will see them later this fall in Athens.
On Tuesday, UGA Athletic Director Greg McGarity discussed the possibility and made it clear black jerseys are coming.
Specifically, they will be worn at home.
“Whenever the black jerseys are worn, people will know well in advance of it,” McGarity said, via the Atlanta Journal Constitution. “It’s not a gimmick; it won’t be a surprise. It will be up to Coach Smart to make that call, but it will be a home game.”
Because they will be worn at home, you can already cross off the season-opener as a potential date for the black jerseys to be worn. In fact, North Carolina is the designated home team for the meeting but both teams will be wearing home jerseys to provide a color vs. color matchup.
Georgia already has the black jerseys ready, they just have yet to unveil them.
“We already have them,” McGarity said. “It will be one game a year. It’s not that big a deal; it’s one of our team colors. But we still think our red jersey is one of the best in college football.”
