Nike beats UGA to punch and unveils Pro Combat uniforms

uganotes.0821

UGA and Nike showed off the Bulldogs' Pro Combat uniform that the team will wear for its opening game against Boise State. (Brant Sanderlin/bsanderlin@ajc.com)

ATHENS – UGA was claiming to offer the first glimpse at noon today of the new Nike Pro Combat uniforms on its Facebook page (facebook.com/georgiabulldogs). But apparently Nike didn’t get the memo. The sneaker giant went ahead and posted pictures earlier this morning of the uniforms they’ll wear against Boise State in the Chick-fil-A game.

Click RIGHT HERE to take a look for yourself. In general, it’s all red with a silver helmet and black socks. Reaction on Twitter and Facebook and on fan sites this morning has been somewhat divided with more dislikes than likes, from what I can see. Some of the comments have been hilarious.

UPDATE: Here’s A LINK to UGA’s gallery and a video at georgiadogs.com.

Let’s hear what you guys think.

It looks horrible… Texas Tech with a silver helmet. If this is in fact the uniform, major letdown.

People need to stop complaining about change. It’s a one time thing and the players all love them. If it gets them in the mind set to crush Boise, who cares what they’re wearing? Support the Dawgs no matter what.

I’m not complaining about change… I’m 28 years old… I was excited about this. Happy for the players, but the uniforms look horrible.

These things look like a cartoon – this is a joke. Get out of this pitiful excuse for UGA digs and just stay true to the real stuff. These look like some wannabe kids stuff. THIS AIN’T HOW UGA DAWGS LOOK ON THE FIELD. Boise State and UGA fans will laugh out loud. I did.

Let’s face it, when you already have the best looking uniforms in CFB, anything else you come up with will pale in comparison.

The players and recruits like it, so, it’s fine for one game.

They also have the uniforms Boise will be wearing for that game also for view on that same link. Just click on Nike Pro Combat and then on Nike pro combat uniforms. UGA’s look better than Boise IMHO

I would’ve gladly taken the other red pro combat uniform that was floating around on the internet for the past year or so… we look like Texas Tech in this thing.

Is this some sick joke? From the best look to . . . let’s just say “not the best.”

I was pretty excited about seeing what Nike came up with but am very disappointed. The red pants don’t bother me (Remember, Herschel was wearing red pants when he ran over Bill Bates to start the National Championship run in ‘80 – so I like the ‘throwback’ idea to that season), but you don’t mess with the helmets. The fu game with the black helmets was a horrible idea and this is too. You don’t mess with the helmets. I’m very disappointed that the UGA brass allowed this to happen.

If they would have kept the silver/grey britches I think that would have somehow helped. As it is the all red is to much.

I agree with Stop Complaining. If this gets the guys in the right frame of mind and leads to a Georgia win, who cares what the uniform looks like? They could be wearing any combination of Red, Black, Silver, and White, as long as you tell me that the team down on the field is The University of Georgia football team, they have my full unconditional support!

Go Dawgs! Sic ‘em!

The uniforms have a lil to much red in them. The uniforms are tough looking, though. Its the 1st game of the season in the ga dome. I just want to win. Lets not let the uniforms be a distraction. FOOTBALL SEASON IS ALMOST HERE. WOOO! HOOOO! GO DAWGS! FINALLY SOMETHING GOOD IS HAPPENING IN THE USA. COLLEGE FOOTBALL. IT SURE ISN’T OUR GOV. OR THE ECONOMY FOR SURE

I am sick of these negative comments on the uniforms! The players LOVE them. That is the most important thing. The only thing that matters is our players being motivated for this game. Anything fans do to diminish that only hurts our cause. GO DAWGS, and let’s support our players no matter what they wear on Gameday.

Just clothing. I just want the WIN. If we win the first two games, then wear them all year for all I care. I love the tradition, and I am sure this is a $ thing, but a bunch of men arguing about clothing is a little too gay for me. Grow a pair, dudes, and stop complaining.

Everything about this game is non-traditional. Why shouldn’t the unis be too? Not a huge fan, but they do look fast and the players are PUMPED!! Go Dawgs!

Hopefully – this is just a mis-direction uniform – maybe the real combat uniform is the classic UGA Red & Silver – and burn those horrible black helmets – hope those never see the light of day again.

How does saying a uniform looks bad (when it does!) diminish anything? If the players lose the game because some fans say the uniforms look bad… we had ALREADY lost the game before it ever started in that case. It hurts nothing. The uniforms are ugly, under my expectations and thats all there is to it.

It’s just a uniform. I like it ok. Would have like black pants better or a black jersey with the red pants. But they’ll look better with the players actually in them and when we see them on tv it’ll look better. These are just models right now. When the players actually put them on, we’ll have a different opinion on them. Just beat Boise.

Not bad. I am against almost anything related to the killing in the name of good government. Just more God and Guns and put money in someones pocket in the name of God.

Been going on for thousands of years. Not surprising that CMR went for this crap.

If uniforms are the thing getting are players excited to play a night game, in the dome, against a top 5 Boise State team we have much bigger issues then this uniform.
