    GTFB Recruiting just released a video on insta touting the return of the black watch. So... this is going to be a thing??

    Would be 100% legit if Adidas made a special black watch uniform for one game.

    That distinction should be earned by performance on the field, not by pre-season marketing hype.

    Totally agree. I’d be interested to know when CGC will determines that the defense has “arrived.” I say not until we have a top 15 defense...

    I don't know who Elizabeth hardy is, but if we don't rebrand student athletes to scholar ballers in our program then we might as well not be trying.

    You use a video like that to entice top recruits to come and become a legend by being the players good enough to reinstitute the blackwatch.

    If you make the all ACC team...You get the stripe. Make the helmet and put in a glass box during workouts for incentive.

    I have good memories of games in the 70s but my great memories of GT started with the Blackwatch. Swilling, Roof, et al back in 84 were awesome. Beating Clemson and UGA that year is what caused me to be the fanatic I am today. Those uniforms at night are just sick (and I don't really care about uniforms).

    Wearing those black alts for a primetime natl broadcast home game where we kick somebody's ass would make for a flood of salty dwag fan tears.

    Edit: Those old enough here, how were the black tops received by the dwags back then? Whiney bitches about it?
