(Photo by Daniel Shirey/Getty Images)Kirby Smart really doesn’t seem like a huge fan of the Georgia Bulldogs wearing black on the gridiron.It has happened once during his tenure, which is now in its third year. In 2016, Georgia broke out the black unis for a game against Louisiana-Lafayette.That was the last time, though, and it has never been a super common occurrence for the Dawgs.We know the black uniforms still exist though. Back in May, Georgia’s equipment room tweeted a picture of them, which got fans excited about the possibility of the team wearing them in 2018.They’ve also been used as a recruiting tool, which Smart acknowledges, and he hasn’t ruled out the possibility of wearing them again in the future. He doesn’t think it is necessary for a big game like Auburn though.From Tuesday, via DawgNation:“We did it once against one of those buy-teams (Louisiana-Lafayette, 2016), but for energy and enthusiasm,” Smart said Tuesday night, informed that Georgia fans had great interest in the Bulldogs wearing black alternate jerseys this season.“I don’t think you need energy and enthusiasm against Auburn — if we do we’ve got some other problems. I just don’t think that’s relevant.”Today, Kirby Smart poked fun at the idea of the Georgia Bulldogs wearing black vs. Auburn once again.Unless he’s pulling a real misdirection, it doesn’t sound like it’s in the cards this [email protected] on #Dawgs wearing Black Jerseys vs AU:”if you guys want black jerseys, just close your eyes & you’ll see black.”Can we award him the Savage Pads?#GoDawgs #UGA #BeatAU— Mark Owens (@marko6262) November 9, 2018Georgia fans have been promoting the idea of wearing black vs. Auburn on social media, with the #BlackoutAuburn tag. Back in 2007, Georgia had one of its most famous blackout games, and blasted the rival Tigers 45-20 at Sanford Stadium.This weekend it seems like we’ll be seeing red though. Either way, Smart is right, with chances of a College Football Playoff berth on the line.last_img read more
