Last fall, Florida broke out some pretty controversial “swamp green” gator-skin patterned uniforms.
The Gators wore the alternate uniforms for their home game against Texas A&M. They presented a distinct challenge to viewers.
The uniforms blended into the field, making the tough-to-watch 2017 Gators even more literally so. Naturally, they were not very popular among fans.
However, recruits seemed to like them. Mullen spoke to Gator fans at the Tampa Yacht & Country Club this evening, and the topic of uniforms came up.
Fan: “Are we going to wear white pants, blue jerseys, and orange helmets at home? Please. Those green things are terrible.”— Dan Thompson (@DK_Thompson) February 28, 2018
“Want to know what every recruit said they’re favorite uniform was? The green ones. We will have a black Jersey combination at some point.”
There have been rumors and reports of black uniforms for the Gators over the last few years. We’ve gotten other alternate looks, but not that one yet.
