I meant to post this earlier in the week, then all the Greg McGarity stuff overtook it. Anyway, had a question from a poster about uniforms. I quote:
Can you find out if the Dawgs will wear the 'real' silver britches this year instead of the flat gray ones worn last year? I know Damon Evans expected silver this year but now he is gone?
The answer, bluntly, is no change. Here was the answer from the inimitable Claude Felton at Georgia:
We will be wearing the same pants as last season. Nike has a newer lighter material called cordura that the players all wanted. They feel the new pants are lighter and more comfortable than the old pants but on these it ‘s a little more difficult to replicate the same silver “sheen.”
So there you go.
Shameless plug: My story in Sunday morning's papers on the Ogletree brothers.
Blog side note: I encountered a snake this afternoon, walking the dog down at the river. Now here's my problem: I was always taught by elders that snakes were as afraid of us as we are of them. And typically they've held up their end of the bargain, slithering away when we get within, say, 10 feet of them.
But this bugger didn't jump into the river until I was right up on it, giving me a good look at its light brown skin (but not the head, so I couldn't be sure whether it was a poisonous copperhead, just a water moccasin, or what.)
Bottom line, if any of you out there know any snakes, let them know that they're supposed to run away from us before we see them and get spooked. They're supposed to be able to sense us from far away.
