David Ching and I got the same note from students attempting to organize a "Red Out" for the Oklahoma State game. They're using FaceBook, message boards and other means to remind people to wear red to the game. Here's the note.
Word traveling around the UGA students is a red-out for the opening home game against OSU. Many of us really want this to happen, and for it to work successfully. I am asking you a huge favor, as I know you are well respected among the UGA fanbase. Please PLEASE get the word out about this red-out to as many friends and fans as you possibly can. A red-out against a visiting Big XII program on national television would give the Bulldog squad added publicity and attention, and we as students feel it would energize the team and the crowd to no end. PLEASE do everything you can to support this cause.Hell...what other color would you wear?
It's not like a Black Out where we're going to try and look like something we're not (ie. Gamecocks). Obviously, I'm in support of the more Red in the stadium the better. Although, it won't make a difference or energize the team; I do think it looks great on TV.
If you would like to join the Facebook group for this it's called "REDout Ok State." If I screwed up the link, don't blame me. I've been on Facebook for like 1 day, and I'm in my 30s so the FaceTubes are new to me. Speaking of which, feel free to add me as a friend. I'm listed as Paul Westerdawg. No snarky photo yet.
And speaking of wearing red, it just so happens that I have red t-shirts, golf shirts and hats in the FanShop store. What a coincidence. lol.
Update -- Groo's reaction was similar as mine. He said, "Asking Georgia fans to come to a game in red is like asking Cure concert-goers to wear black. It’s just going to happen." Amen. But I'm all for the movement. Just as long as they are loud.
