The last two years, UGA dropped the silver britches in favor of a matte gray finish. Personally, I don't think it looks as good, but there is a heavy historical precedent for it. Herschel Walker wore the gray pants when he won the Heisman.
I only bring it up because Ohio State just lost their silver britches as well in favor of a the gray pants. (ht to Orson)
Here are UGA's pants at different points:
2001 - silver
I don't think it's that big a deal for us given that we've won SEC Titles both ways, but I do have a personal preference for the Silver. But the Buckeyes are certainly bent about it.
