Georgia's football program won't want much to change on the gridiron this season. While the defending national champions will attempt to maintain last year's dominance, they'll do so with a throwback look.

On Thursday, the school revealed modified jerseys featuring block numbers. The Bulldogs enlisted former All-American linebacker David Pollock, who wore a similar style when attending Georgia from 2001 to 2004, to share the news on Twitter.

Nolan Smith, Kearis Jackson, and Warren Ericson showed off the tweaked uniforms.

John Meshad, the school's director of football inventory management, told the Athens Banner-Herald's Marc Weiszer that fans were clamoring for the old design.

"There have been grumblings about it, people have been asking about getting the block numbers back," John Meshad said. "When (athletic director) Josh Brooks took over, that was one of the first things we met about. He asked if it was possible. He said he liked it and I liked it. It's a good look."

The Bulldogs will display these jerseys when beginning their title defense on September 3 against the Oregon Ducks.
