Clash of the … Seahawks and Georgia?

Championship

Hey, new guy — it’s called Saturday Open Thread.

I know, I know. But it’s time to break the mold, think outside the box, and play one game at a time. Something like that, anyway. So, at the dawn of this brave new era, I give you Gregory vs. Emory/Ethan in the South Dakota Class 9AA championship game. That’s nine-man football if you’re keeping track at home. And I’m happy to report that the Seahawks won, 33-14.

Have a good Saturday, folks. — Bryan

    seahawks guy is wearing under armor glove and nike elbow pad. This game looks like it was played indoors. is there a dome in SOuth Dakota?

  • StevieW | November 10, 2007 at 7:58 am |

    I’ve always liked that old school seahawks logo better. Nice to see it back.

    Congratulations on your first two games as Bench Coach. I like that title as well.

    Wow… earliest post ever on a Saturday. Or maybe it’s just the earliest I’ve ever been up? :o)

    Bryan, just wanna throw in that you’re doing a great job. Vinny was awesome too, so keep at it, gents.

    Shouldn’t the stripes wrap all the way around the back of the helmet?

    And where exactly is the sea in South Dakota?

  • Bryan Redemske | November 10, 2007 at 9:12 am |

    Yes, there is a dome in South Dakota — it’s in Vermillion and called the Dakota Dome. It’s the teflon bubble type, like the Metrodome. And the Dakota Dome was modeled after the UNI-Dome in Cedar Falls, Iowa, home of the University of Northern Iowa. I know too much about domes.

    Thanks for the kudos, guys. Vince set the bar pretty high.

    Not only are you a uni geek, you’re a stadium geek, my kind of guy. It should be noted that the UNI Dome no longer has its Teflon, it was replaced with a more sturdy structure a few years ago.

    Interesting branding development in Muncie, Indiana last night. Something you rarely see in DI Hoops. Ball State was wearing Nike uniforms but had adidas shoes and played with an adidas ball.

    They would look a trillion times better if their jerseys never matched their pants. That way, one thing, but not both things, would match the helmet.

    The W is slanted in the opposite direction from Wisconsin. Probably not enough of a difference to stave off a lawsuit. I tried to link a pic but my post was eaten.

  • Eliot | November 10, 2007 at 11:52 am |

    The Woodlands High School faced a lawsuit awhile back. It had always been discussed, but I think when they played a game on ESPN, it got Wisconsin’s attention. here is the old design, here is the new one.

    A few thoughts I want to share:

    1. Georgia looks great in black.
    2. Wisconsin’s helmets are hideous. I hate the motion W.
    3. Army has some of the nicest uniforms in all of football.
    4. Michigan’s road uniforms are much better than they were in the late 90’s/early 00’s, but they were much better in the early 90’s.
    5. I like some of Oregon’s football uniform combinations… and I like the whole package just for its quirkiness.
    6. Illinois should use the circular Chief Illiniwek logo instead of the ILLINOIS wordmark on its football helmets.
    7. Michigan State should consider white helmets with a green logo instead of the opposite.

    We’ve been talking about the UGA-In-Black at work today. What a strange site to see very little red amongst the masses. As far as I’m aware, the team was coy about whether or not they’d be in black (it was a fan-blackout) until they took the field. Worst kept secret, but a cool hype technique. I’d imagine that Sanford Stadium shook when the Dawgs came out.

    [quote comment=”168812″]We’ve been talking about the UGA-In-Black at work today. What a strange site to see very little red amongst the masses. As far as I’m aware, the team was coy about whether or not they’d be in black (it was a fan-blackout) until they took the field. Worst kept secret, but a cool hype technique. I’d imagine that Sanford Stadium shook when the Dawgs came out.

    I’ll have to watch the highlights when I get home. Until then, it’s the SI.com ticker for me![/quote]

    It’s kind of hard to discern the crowd volume from the CBS broadcast (though it actually seems sort of quiet b/c there has been a lot of penalties, reviews and commercials).

    With the exception of the Auburn visitor sections, the entire stadium is wearing black. They just showed a blimp perspective shot and it looked pretty odd.

  • DP | November 10, 2007 at 5:24 pm |

    I’m torn. The Georgia black combination is nice. It’s aesthetically pleasing. It looks clean. I… Just don’t like Georgia wearing black. We have a classic uniform. It just seems wrong to not go red on red on silver for a home game.

    It’s a shame I had to work today instead of being able to see the game in person.

    UGA BLACKOUT UPDATE

    According to my co-workers, UGA entered the stadium in their red jeserys and changed into their black jersey’s before taking the field for the game. How ’bout them sporting dramatics!

    Also, the ploy worked as the Dawgs took the Tigers to task in the last half by scoring four unanswered touchdowns in a 45-20 blowout.

    At this point, I think Mark Richt could ask for a Pink-Out next week and Sanford Stadium would oblige!

    UGA has another must-win home game next week against a tough Kentucky team. Last year Kentucky beat UGA. I say the Dawgs need to wear black again next week.

    One thing not mentioned here…after the team warmed up in red, the UGA captains came out for the toss in red. The the team ran out on the field in black, and the captains took off thier red jerseys to reveal black ones underneath…nice touch.

    The Duke throwbacks would’ve been better with white pants.

  • TimInGA | November 10, 2007 at 7:46 pm |

    There was an interesting shot during CBS’s telecast of the game. It was of one of Georgia’s captains removing his red jersey on the field. The captains did the coin toss in the traditional red jersey and then removed it to reveal their black jersey’s underneath. Also, UGA the mascot was donning the black jersey too. This was the second time the mascot wore a black jersey, Vince Dooley’s retirement was the other.

    Methinks the UGA nose bumpers usually say DAWGS, by the way.

    Don’t like it when USC players wear the black shoes with lots of white trim, but UGA QB Matthew Stafford looked good in his. Good updates on the board about UGA players wearing white shoestrings when.

  • John in Athens | November 10, 2007 at 7:50 pm |

    From SI.com:

    Richt spent most of the week dancing around the jersey issue, and the Bulldogs came out for warmups wearing their normal red home attire.

    When the four captains walked out of the locker room still in red, there was a bit of a groan from the crowd. But it was all a ruse.

    The rest of the team charged out through the main entrance wearing black jerseys, sending the 92,000 fans into a tizzy, the massive stadium rocking out to the AC/DC anthem ”Back in Black.”

    If that isn’t a nominee for Uni Moment of the Year, I don’t know what is!

    Oh what a day! Being a huge Georgia fan & an avid uni watcher it all came together today. UGA played this to the hilt. First with Richt calling for the blackout then being coy about the black jerseys all week then it carried over into the warm-ups. The players were dressed as they usually have been all season. For example Knowshon Moreno had on his white on top black on bottom socks & even Harry (the mascot dawg not UGA) had on his normal red jersey! At the end of warm-ups I read Richt’s lips telling the player to look in the stands at all the black. Just before the game started the captains came out in red which is usually when the rest of the tram comes out but today the team took forever to come out. The banner the players run through was closer to the tunnel than normal. Then we caught a glimpse on them rounding the corner in the tunnel & the roar started on the South side. When they burst through the banner the crowd went NUTS! The team was hyped out of there minds so those jerseys were worth all 45 points today! They looked GREAT! Most of us in the stands were saying we want to see this as a new tradition but only for BIG games ala what Notre Dame & the green jerseys. However they look so good & really display all the school colors (Make silver an official color already!) perfectly that I wouldn’t mind seeing that look a lot.

    I’m going to guess that they’ll do the same “throwback” they did two years ago and stick the block “I” on the helmet.

Now, I have always loved SEC football, but the Dawgs looked top-notch in their unis today. Black jerseys, red helmets, red and black stripes down the pants…I was in heaven watching. And the blackout? Fabulous. I would have felt right at home in that crowd. Well, sartorially-speaking, that is.

    Go Georgia![/quote]

    Do I hear an Athens Uni Watch party coming on?[/quote]

    John in Athens, that would be cool for you, but since I live in MN, that would be quite a jaunt for me.

    u2horn, I have to agree that it made me uneasy to see the blackface as well. Even though Stevo is right in his assessment (the added black-arms, red wigs, etc.), it still speaks to the power of images that I felt a flash of uncomfortableness every time the black-painted fans were shown.

    That said, the blackout has been my favorite moment of the college season thus far, with the ‘Scarlet’ Knights dressed in all black a close second.

    Maybe we’ll just have to have an Athens Uni Watch Part: MN Edition in 2010 when the Twins new park opens!

    Hey, I actually played for emery-ethan in that game. I was an all-state center. The reason they are called the seawhawks is because they had a co-op with Spencer, Emery and Ethan. They used to spell it SEEhawks. when Spencer dropped out they just kept the name so they didnt have to buy new jerseys and equipment
