Nike Reveals University of Georgia's Pro Combat Uniforms

Nike and the University of Georgia just revealed the special Nike Pro Combat game uniforms that the Bulldogs will wear in the Chick-Fil-A Kick-off game Saturday, September 3, against Boise St.

Predictably, UGA fans are not terribly happy about the switch, even if it's for just one game.  My objection is calling these uniforms "Pro Combat."  First of all, they're (supposedly) amateurs, not Pros.  Secondly, and this is a huge issue with me, sports is not war.  This is not combat.  This is a game. A very violent, highly competitive game, but still a game.  Thirdly, I'm an alumnus of UGA, and I'm not that thrilled with this look but need to see it on the field.

Last year, Nike unveiled their Pro Combat Uniforms for Boise State which the Broncos will wear again this year:

Is it just me, or is the real world looking more and more like a video game?

I actually like these Boise State uniforms much more than what either team wore last night.
