Georgia Teases Black Uniforms With Vintage Mark Richt Video

Update: Georgia coach Mark Richt has some bad news for fans who were hoping that the team would wear black jerseys against Auburn. Richt told the media today that there is "no chance" that the Bulldogs will sport the special uniforms this week.

Richt could change his mind later this week and surprise everyone, but for now it doesn't look like Georgia's going to wear black jerseys.

Earlier: Back in 2007, Georgia, playing rival Auburn, broke out black uniforms for the first time in the modern era. The Bulldogs, behind future NFL stars Matthew Stafford and Knowshon Moreno, won the game easily, 45-20, creating somewhat of a new tradition in the process. The team has worn black digs a few times since with mixed results.

With UGA set to play the Tigers at home again this season, fans have been wondering if the program will opt to bring back the black. Sunday, Georgia's Twitter account tweeted out a strange message, along with a video of Richt from back in 2007. As you'll see below, the Bulldogs are apparently going to "reward" fans either way on Saturday.

It's a bit bizarre if Georgia teases fans like this without following through, but anything is possible. If they do don the black, it'll be interesting to see how fans feel about it. Not all UGA supporters are fond of the idea.
