Welcome to Nike Pro Combat Hell, Georgia!

Nike unveiled the uniform Georgia will be wearing in the Chick-fil-A Kickoff Game on Sept. 3. If you were a Bulldog fan worried about the return of black jerseys or black pants, or (Hershel Walker forbid) black helmets,  then you have nothing to worry about. If you're a little anal about silver britches, however...

To be honest, this isn't one of Nike's best looks. The silver helmets are okay, though the stripe could have been a little smaller. As for the almost all-red uni...well, it could have used a little black on the pants. Black pants would have been really cool with that jersey, but it seems Georgia might be a little too gun-shy about those kind of things after the 2008 beatdown by Florida.

 A silver or black compression shirt might have been a better idea for this uni, too. It could have broken up the monotony of the red shirt and pants. Or Nike could have tried to come up with the shiniest silver britches possible for the uni. That might have been just enough to raise the level of Bulldog Nation nervousness from queasiness in the stomach to complete ulcer-developing levels.
