The things that are really important are not going to change because we wear a different (really nice) uniform for one game. Relax.
    Field is 120 yards long. Old people know that.

    Only chance of this team winning less than 6 games is if it's ravenged by injuries. Anybody predicting 4 wins or some crap like that is clueless. Post Arkansas St game is going to be fun around here to watch the crow being eaten. Heck, even post UNH is going to provide some fun.

    I don't doubt your info from Mr Twitter, however.
    As I said before. The uniforms are not being used to sell tickets. That's why you haven't seen any of our alternative uniforms in the advertising for tickets the university has ramped up the last few weeks. They are for the players and potential players. Period. Not you and not me. These players work their butts off. They deserve the opportunity to enjoy it.

    They look pretty good in the pictures.

    I think a one-game per season alternate is a perfect compromise, so I don't really get the continual whining about them.

    The curmudgeons don't seem to recognize that an alternate is just that--it reinforces our traditional uniforms in the same way that the medieval carnival reinforced the liturgical year.

    Reject our current compromise of an annual alternate, and you'll see every new GS head coach trying to put his own stamp on our uniform (think about the helmet BVG had sitting on his desk).

    I'm really curious what this helmet you're referring to looks like, never heard about this before.

    Well that is just awful. Embarrassing isn't strong enough.

    I still don’t get the narrative on “kids love these alt unis”. I am around high school football players a few times a week. I’ve brought this very subject up to them. To a man, it is almost unanimous that they don’t even know the alt uniforms exist. Kids going on recruiting trips to programs throughout the south and eastern seaboard. One particular player: “the alternate uniforms are the ones that show support for the gay people?”
    Too many Urkels on your team that's why your wins low

    We also have kids announce that they are committing to the University of Georgia Southern....

    No one said all kids, and if some don't know enough about the schools they are visiting to say the correct name, do they even know enough to know what the difference between the traditional and alt jerseys?

    If the alt unis will help us recruit more people built like the guy modeling them, then I'm all for them!
