Tweet O' The Day: Boykin to Dawg Nation "Spread the Red"

I guess today's theme on the blog should probably be "Spread the Red" as about 80% of the articles on H2H today center around the Dawgs new uniforms. That's not bad, as the new unis were much anticipated and highly speculated. I've noticed that there's a pretty strong opinion either way so we've created a poll.

It's going to be attached to this post somewhere (like above), so just let us know how you feel and we're going to discuss the results in tomorrow's episode of "Hedge Talk". Also, please feel free to comment on this article or Dawgola's "Up Close" one with a handle and you may get a mention on this week's episode as well. Make sure and listen to find out if you made the discussion.

Anyway, enough shamless plugs for our podcast...

Today's TOTD (Tweet O' the Day) comes from cornerback and KO return specialist, Brandon Boykin. He's a fan of the new duds and feels that the Dawg Nation should join him September the 3rd in what we're going to affectionately call the "Red Out" (if we lose, I'll forever refer to it as the "Bleed Out" for obvious reasons and also the potential it has to massively derail our season and subsequently off Mark Richt).

Notice the red lettering as well?

I'll be the first to admit that I was a little "meh" on the new garb... until I saw them in person and became a little more fond of them. I'm not one of the traditionalists by any means when it comes to the uniforms, so I really couldn't care less what we wear. Honestly, we haven't created much in the way of tradition in any uniform lately, so what's the difference? It's pretty obvious that the team likes the way they look, so let's do them a favor and quit the complaining. Really if we win, NO ONE, and I mean NO ONE will care what we wore.

And I know there's those of you out there who are gonna say, "But it's a problem when you gotta get a uniform change to jack up the players," and I won't be buying. The athletic department didn't mandate this - Nike did, so that's pretty much a moot point. Frankly, if these guys aren't excited already for a game in the Dome on a national stage against a top-5 team, they'll pretty much have to have Xanax coursing through their veins.

If you haven't had a look, here's what both teams will be wearing in the Dome.
